How about the Bulls would have won 8 championships is MJ didn't retire in his prime.

If there was an 11 game series, the Bulls were the best time around.

PACERS!!!!

I don't understand all the Rose **** riding. His shooting percentage is no better than Kobe, he shoots at will and everyone wants him to be MVP. Am I missing something?

I mean he has the ball in his hands all the time and has the green light.

No difference... by my memory the Bulls were never challenged in the first round during their run. Making the first round series 7 games instead of 5 wouldn't have mattered. In fact, I think only the Knicks in 92( second round, 7 games) and the Pacers in 98( conference finals, 7 games) ever took those Bulls to the limit.

Actually, a 5 game series makes it EASIER to upset a team.

Your insinuation that the Bulls championship teams would have lost in the first round had there been an extra 2 games in the series is bizarre. Why don't you tell us EXACTLY which of those 6 championships would have ended in defeat with a 7 game series?

For example in 1998 thier first championship, are you saying that the New Jersey Nets would have gone on a 4 game winning streak after falling behind 3-0? or is it another year?
