    And yes, I was legitimately upset when the 86 Celtics blew the series with the 02 Lakers... 3 games decided by 2 points or less and they lose all of them? Come on, Larry!

  2. Jason J Says:

    Wow Jordan really defended the hell out of himself. I don't think he shot over 50% from the field even once in that Bulls vs. Bulls series.

  3. Neil Paine Says:

    Shades of this:

  4. Gerrit Says:

    Lakers beat Celtics twice. Yes!

  5. mrparker Says:

    re Bulls vs. Bulls,
    The refs in this series did not get the Jordan memo. He didn't go to the line much at all.

  6. Jason J Says:

    Parker - They got the memo, they just couldn't call the fouls when Jordan was man defending Jordan. Personally I think 34 year old Jordan should have got the calls. He had seniority.

  7. Neil Paine Says:

    The universe is going to explode when the 91 Bulls play the 92 Bulls in the Pool D semifinal.
