Bulls win in 1994. Rockets win in 1995.

Bulls in 94
and Rockets in 95

So Jordan would have been 7/8, with Hakeem being 1/3.

This seems to be the popular pick. Makes absolute sense to me.

Jordan has said in the past that the '90s Rockets was the team that gave them the most troubles. Along with Olajuwon dominating the interior, Houston had Vernon Maxwell to dog Jordan. He was one of if not the only player who truly got in Jordan's head.

Regardless, you can't bet against Jordan.

Right, I wouldn't bet against Jordan. No way I see the Bulls losing either year.

And Maxwell get in Jordan's head?... What? Gary Payton....

In 94' an MJ-less Bulls team took the Knicks to 7 games, who took the Rockets to 7 games... So yeah.

You can't just transitive property the playoffs. It's all about matchups, teams matchup better/worse against certain teams.


They're evenly matched w/o Jordan. With MJ with the Bulls smoke Houston both years.

The 95' Finals were nowhere near the beatdown everyone thinks either...

It was a sweep, scores were close but when push came to shove Dream closed it out. Second, the Bulls had MJ in '95 and lost to Orlando. That Orlando team was the Thunder of that era. Young Shaq and young Penny Hardaway, they were perceived as the favorite going into the series. Then the brooms came out.

There's not really any point to discuss this because we'll never know the outcome, but I feel comfortable saying Houston has a very good shot in '95.

The question is "had Jordan not retired" so he wouldn't have joined the team in March. Game 1 of the Finals was handed to Houston and Orlando couldn't recover. I can't remember who was favored but that was the choke of all chokejobs.

A win is a win. A sweep is a sweep. That '95 Rockets team ended up being incredible once we traded for Clyde.
