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.
