Who plays in the post anymore?

LeBron did not quit for two years either.
A shame really. More players should develop post games.

Yeah Jordan didnt play nearly long enough and at the peak of his powers took two years off. He'd probably have 7 MVPs and 8 rings has he not taken some time off.

Good chance the Bulls win the 1993/94 title with MJ. They had the 3rd best record in the East and lost to the Knicks 4-3 in the Semi Finals (3 of the losses between 1-5 points). With MJ that doesn’t happen, then they play the 47-35 Pacers, who the Knicks also beat 4-3. Houston weren’t some juggernaut either that was unstoppable, they had the luck of Seattle (#1 seed) losing Round 1 and the next year Houston repeated as the #6 seed.

I firmly believe that MJ retiring cost the Bulls at least 1 more title. MJ was back for the back end of the 1994/95 season and at his best for the playoffs but the Bulls lost in the Smei Final 4-2 and they had a 47-35 record so you could say the team were out of sorts and still out of sorts when MJ was back. But the 1993/94 season? I reckon the Bulls win it with MJ. But it’s all apart of history and no one can take Houston’s titles away from them or rag on them (I am not trying to do that). Just sucks as a Bulls supporter than MJ retired and we will never find out if it is still 6 titles or 7 or 8. :p
