And during their last run, they weren't the 96/97 team anymore. The Pacers went toe-to-toe with them in 98, that was an epic series. 99 was a shortened season though so that would've helped them.
agree about the Pacers but MJ almost hit a miracle game 6 winner (that would have been insane) and then they blew them out of the water in game 7.
As for his first retirement...I don't know, I really don't think anyone was touching the Bulls with a focused MJ in the mid 90s...we'll never know though
