    Man that was a game 3 in the 94 playoffs,lol. Pippen was never a great shooter or that great at creating his own shot in the halfcourt to begin with, so I could've seen the reasoning with the play.

    You're obviously a Bulls/Pippen/MJ fan at heart to support that. When it ended up working. I done wit dis.

    But too many on court and off court antics to really be considered consistently the best. He'd probably be on my 3rd team for all defense. For his mastery of the psychological aspects of the game, if nothing else.
    Well the best offensive player of all time said he was the toughest defender he ever played against....

    I could never forgive him for that and that drops him a notch for me. Of course people only want to talk of his titles in Detroit and Chicago and sweep this part of his career under the carpet.

    Banna stay silent curl up like crekateck and took his licks.

    antics don't get confuse by them...
    The NBA would never acknowledge his presence and dominance...

    Well I don't mean the antics, just the fact that he quit on his team during the playoffs. You can't be a quitter when things don't go right and be the best ever imho if you abandon a team during a playoffs.

    And if I talking about a power forward. Antics or no antics, no way I could see a reason for him over Duncan defensively (or Garnett).

    I just can't.

    Great blocker... thats it, defense is not how you block a shot...
    it about keeping your opponent away from the basket and forcing them to make impossible shots.....

    Go look @ Rodman when he was in detroit,

    he was way more than just blocking shots and if all you did was block shots then that the object of the game to stop the ball from going thru the rim right lol check below

    damn shame the early 90s Super Sonics never got the chip...
    THey shoulda got past The Suns in the 1993 playoffs... If they had instant replay back then, they would have, because Barkley got a last second shot that he put up after the buzzer..
