      Pippen and MJ would have destroyed so many of these teams of today, just on the defensive end, not even counting the 50+ they would be putting up at the other end, every game. Imagine on the Rockets, them putting Pippen on Harden and MJ on Chris Paul lolz.

        Scottie listed at 6’7... looks more like 6’8-6’9.... looks taller than T-Mac

            0 titles without Pippen, he set a tone as soon as he arrived with the Bulls, brought them to the next level.

                        See this is defense I'm talking about. And there are some people who think the warriors would've beat the bulls that's a joke.

                          Mcgrady was a scorer,yet he only scored just over 18000 points and averaged under 20 points per game in 15 or 16 seasons?
                          I know he was good but as far as scorers go,he isn't even ranked in the top 50 of total points scored and is ranked 74th in ppg.

                            @elias he had 5 seasons with less than 50 games a season.Out of 16?
                            No,,i don't think he would have been a top 5 scorer.He only had 1 season where he averaged over 30 points.

                            did you watch his prime? he was a bucket. injuries ruined his career, without of injuries he would be pretty much top 5 scorer ever

                          Harden is the worst traveller ever and referees that let him get away with travelling are corrupt.
                          Corruption has many forms.

                              When I see those Bulls players speak (Especially about Defense) it makes me wish i could have seen those 96 Bulls against some of these teams.

                                    He’d score more than he does today. Back then you couldnt play help defense and you had to fully commit to a double.

                                    Im not opposed to changing my mind but i dont understand comments claiming that the refs are somehow biased towards harden. There is no reason at all for them to favour him whatsoever so maybe he just is excellent at drawing fouls and the like. And also with the travel if he can perform it without nba level referees calling it then why should he not? Its not a travel if the refs dont call it.

                                        Pip just gave the blueprint to beat James Harden to the entire world. Just shows he’s brilliant when it comes to defense.

                                                  Ive been saying this..say a 96 Bulls team would shut Harden down with ease. Its about the team. Piston knew that one on one you couldnt beat Jordan but a team can...this is what you need for Harden. But also the travelling doesnt help lol .

                                                                            • Michael J.F.

                                                                                • caleb gonya

Sacrificing some offense to wear him down over the course of 48 minutes. And I wouldn’t play all scorers this way, just Harden

                                                                                  • James Smith
