It seems like whenever a Bulls game is show from the 91 to 93 or 96 to 98 it's always a game they won. The Bulls never lost any close playoff games when Michael Jordan was on the team during the 90's? Why is every Bulls game shown during the 90's a win? There were no close Bulls Playoff games during the 1994 and 1995 season?

BTW: Today Game 2 of the 1996 NBA Finals between the Bulls and Sonics...........Another Bulls win.

Maybe because they won 6 NBA Titles?

But they still lost games in each of the finals. Like game 1 of the NBA finals in 1991

And to the Blazers and Suns. It wasn't like they Swept all of the series in the Finals

Since they came out on top 6 times during their run, showing the odd loss here and there is inconsequential. The reality is, that Bulls team always rose to the occasion when the stakes were highest. So there's no footage of them losing a game 7, or something to that effect. In a 6 game series where they went on to win, showing them losing game 3, for example, is pretty irrelevant, unless it happened to feature some noteworthy performance. Case in point, I've seen the Bulls-Suns 93 finals game where the Bulls lost in triple-overtime, that's been shown as a classic game, so has the Game 1 loss to the Lakers in 1991, so has the 95 Bulls-Magic game 1 when Jordan famously had the ball stripped from behind by Nick Anderson.

I get what you mean, I collect Eagles Losses and if they were to win the SB that season then having that loss in my collection would be pointless. I think I have seen a Bulls loss on ESPN Classic but none on NBATV

Because Jordan could beat anyone, so obviously he wasn't playing at his greatest when beaten

Not that Im a Bulls fan, but maybe NBATV finds all of the Bulls wins "NBA Great Games"; but doesnt find the same in any of the losses. Obviously, when Jordan hits the shot on Ehlo or pushes off on Russell, the Bulls won those games. The block (or foul depending on your perspective) sequence against Charles Smith and the Knicks--another Bulls win.

The game with the John Starks dunk--is that considered a great game? Myabe that is a candidate for great NBA games that was a Bulls loss...

Or they can show losses from the 1984 to 1990 era and not just the wins from the 90's.

Your thread title is "NBA's Greatest Games".

.....and you are wondering why they aren't showing games like from the Celtics making a first round sweep of a young Bulls team in say 1986?

Perhaps, and it's certainly a crazy thought, but most sane people wouldn't consider some first round sweep a "greatest game".

Now the Bulls loss to the Pistons in game 7 of the 1990 ECF would, and I have seen that one on TV before but don't remember where.

Seems like what you are looking for is a program called, "NBA's mediocre meaningless games where the Bulls lost." It's hard to go 6-0 in the finals and not be shown winning "Great Games" the vast majority of the time.
