Since we don't have any big topics to discuss during that horrible season:

What does your All-Time Chicago Bulls rivalry team look like? Who do you put on that roster?

No brainers in my mind are LeBron, Wade, Rondo, Ray Allen, Pierce and Bosh. From the earlier days I woul put in I. Thomas, Stockton, Malone, Ewing, maybe Reggie Miller & Starks as well.

What about players from that Pacers team in 2011-13? Granger? Hibbert? Someone from our mini rivalry with the Wizards like Nené? Does Dellovadova make the team?

What would your roster look like?

I have an irrational (or maybe completely rational) hatred for Larry Hughes from like the 2005 playoffs or something. It was only made worse when he was in a Bulls uni some years later lol

hmmm
C: Hakeem: Bulls played well against Ewing and Shaq defensively but never could figure out Hakeem for about 13 years from 84-85 to 96-97.
PF: Karl Malone: When he was on he helped his team hang with the Bulls.
SF: LeBron: Obvious
SG: Joe Dumars: Best player to ever guard Jordan man to man
PG: Isiah Thomas: Obvious

I figured the Bad Boy Pistons and those 90s Knick teams were a given

Long before my irrational hatred for Larry Hughes was my probably completely rational hatred of John Starks. And Anthony Mason...even in video games he infuriates me with his presence

Horace Grant!

There is no way guys like Stockton or Bird were more hated than Starks. Starks would be the team captain IMO, either he or Laimbeer. Xavier McDaniel and Greg Anthony deserve special mention because they didn't even bother playing basketball against the Bulls...they just started fights.

It was just that whole piston team that walked off the court without congratulating the little brother that finally beat the big bully that took them out every season. That is what I remember the most. Other than them, the rivalry moved to the Knicks who could never beat Jordan, but the personal one was how MJ handled Kobe and keeping him on his tails, never really passing that torch that he got.

The Bulls never faced the Shaq/Kobe Lakers in the Finals so it was kind of difficult for KB24 to receive the torch from MJ.

I think this is cleaner if you keep it to 5.

Ewing
Rodman
James
Wilkins
Thomas

Feels about right to me, in terms of true rivals with highest skill and real hate grown for each other. Kudos for Rose n company even creating one rivalry that can touch the Jordan era in chippyness.

That team would fuck up just about anything you can create from any era too.

Xavier McDaniel was the biggest asswipe only because his coach was an even bigger asswipe.

Which one? Gerald, Nique, or Eddie Lee?

Before Jordan slayed Detroit he had to take the soul of Donique Wilkins.
