5 NBA Players Who Should Not Be Considered NBA Busts From the 90s

Each decade has its share of players who are considered  busts.  Obviously, several of these types of players from the ’90s fall into this category.  But in reality, the label bust may be unfairly given to certain players.  Find out from this 90s Sports Nostalgia video about which 5 NBA players should not be considered busts from the ’90s.

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.

Allen Iverson in 1996: Georgetown vs. Memphis

In this video, Allen Iverson’s electrifying quickness is on display during his days at Georgetown.   The Memphis Tigers came into town with a talented top-25 team with three future NBA players in Cedric Henderson, Lorenzen Wright and Chris Garner.  The Tigers also had one of the greatest leapers ever in Michael Wilson.  Meanwhile, the Hoyas also had their fair share of NBA talent in Iverson, Othella Harrington, Jerome Williams and Jahidi White.   This game took place on Saturday, Feb 17, 1996.

Enjoy this video.  The Michigan Wolverines were the defending National Champions.  Although they lost Glen Rice after the 1989 season, Michigan still had several NBA players on its roster.  Meanwhile, the 1989-1990 LMU Lions star Hank Gathers, tragically passed away during the regular season.  Despite the tragedy, LMU was able to average 122.4 points a game.  This was the highest scoring NCAA tournament game ever.  Enjoy this video, one of my favorites.
