Perhaps, no one can deny that when talking about NBA of the 90s, the numerous championships of the Chicago Bulls are among the first things that come to any basketball fan’s mind. This team has been notable in the NBA history because of its overall 6 championship winnings in the seasons between 1991 and 1998. It is also one of the very few basketball teams in the league to victoriously complete two three-peats within the said period. Of course, the Chicago Bulls would have not that successful without the inclusion of all-time NBA superstars, Scottie Pippen and Michael Jordan.
Scottie Pippen has been called as one of the best complimentary NBA players in the league’s history. In fact, he is listed in the 50 Greatest NBA Players of All-Time, along with Michael Jordan who has been often thought to overshadow Pippen’s career. He also contributed a lot in all the winnings of the Chicago Bulls throughout his career, especially in the 90s era. With his unforgettable ring shots, steals, and rebounds, Scottie Pippen is indeed an NBA Legend that holds a huge part of the Bulls Legacy. Last December 9, 2005, the Chicago Bulls superstar finally let go of his number 33 jersey. It was then in August 13, 2010 when he was enshrined and given tribute into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. To pay tribute to this basketball legend, several of his fellow Bulls superstars gathered and listened to his 8-minute speech at the Symphony Hall in Springfield, Massachusetts.
Meanwhile, there’s no doubt that Michael Jordan has been immortalized because of all his remarkable achievements and contributions to the winnings of the Chicago Bulls. He was declared an All-Time MVP winner for five times (seasons 87-88, 90-91, 91-92, 95-96, and 97-98) and thus, he also belongs to one of the 50 All-Time Greatest NBA Players. In September 11, 2009, he was then enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Until now, he is still remembered by basketball fans as a player who defied the odds with his astonishing basketball moves like his “air walk???.
Michael Jordan is also among the few NBA players who starred in a Hollywood movie. It was in 1996 when the movie “Space Jam??? conquered the silver screens. This is actually the movie where he co-starred with Looney Tunes superstars Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Tweety Bird, Sylvester, and many others. Other than that, Jordan also received a lot of commercial endorsements and live/TV appearances, which were all supported by his die-hard fans all over the world.
