On this day; May 17, 1998, David Wells of the New York Yankees pitched a perfect game

Twenty-two years ago, David Wells pitched the 15th perfect game in Major League Baseball.  The lefty accomplished this feat against the Minnesota Twins at Yankee Stadium.  After the game, Wells comically said something to the effect of, “I knocked down 27 straight hitters, then I went out and knocked down 27 Heinekens.”

Remembering Chris Webber’s Nike Barbershop Commercial

On Nov. 16, 1993, Warriors rookie Chris Webber displayed an incredible behind-the-back dunk on Charles Barkley. Subsequently, that dunk became part of a Nike Barbershop commercial. Webber played only one season for the Golden State Warriors as his relationship with head coach Don Nelson soured.  As a result, Webber was traded to the Washington Bullets. 

 

The Chicago Bulls in the 90s Without Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan was obviously outstanding in the ’90s.  This decade really cemented Jordan’s status as being called the GOAT by a plentiful amount of people.  In reality, Jordan did not play in roughly three NBA seasons in the 1990s.  This video takes a look at the 1993-94 Chicago Bulls, the 1994-95 Chicago Bulls and very briefly, the 1998-99 Chicago Bulls.

In actuality, Scottie Pippen had a tremendous campaign during the 1993-94 NBA season.  And thus and remarkably, the Bulls won 55 games which was two less than the previous year with Michael Jordan.  These were Pippen’s stats during the 1993-1994 Chicago Bulls season:  22.0 PPG, 8.7 RPG, 5.6 APG and 2.9 SPG.  Unfortunately, the Bulls lost in a classic 7-game series with the New York Knicks.

24 Years Ago: New York Knicks vs. Chicago Bulls – Game 1 Eastern Conference Semifinals

24 years ago, the New York Knicks and the Chicago Bulls squared off in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.  The Bulls and Knicks had some classic games in the 90s, especially in the playoffs as these two teams met quite often.  This game is significant because this is the last playoff series these two rivals will play each other in the 90s.  Below are the highlights of this game with Michael Jordan leading the way with 44 points.

Forgotten NBA Teams: The 1993-1994 Atlanta Hawks

Michael Jordan retired after the 1992-1993 season and as a result, it opened the door for teams like the 1993-1994 Atlanta Hawks to win the title. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite work out the way Atlanta would have liked. This 90s NBA video will take a look at this ATL Hawks team, led by Dominique Wilkins, during the 93-94 NBA season. I greatly appreciate your interest in this 90s sports video. Enjoy this basketball history documentation about this forgotten NBA team.
