No you were the one making shit up. Jordan only needed pippen to become great to win championship. Yes they also had paxson the best 3 pt shooter but they didnt have the best rebounder and 6th man. Jordan didnt need multiple all stars to win championship and thats why its easier to build around jordan if you want to win championship. Jordan was hard on his teammates he expected perfection. He wanted the best out of them not throwing them under the bus because they werent good. Phil was just lucky he never built a bottom team to win championship. He had prime jordan and pippen when he took over collins and when he arrived at lakers they were already making conference finals and was loaded with a prime shaq who was the most dominant player ever. The lakers coach he took over wasnt a good coach because i dont think he ever coached again

The point was that the Bulls weren't just a two-man team.  I think their performance after Jordan left is sufficient evidence that I'm not just making it up.

Jordan was more than hard on his teammates.  Without a good coach to keep things in balance, that team falls apart from Jordan's antics as well.

The Lakers were imploding before Jackson got there.  The team chemistry was awful and Kobe and Shaq weren't playing together.  Jackson walked through the door and changed that.  Also, Del Harris is a pretty good coach.

Look, it seems more and more obvious that you're not inclined to look at Jordan clearly and realize he had faults and a lot of luck to get him the stat lines you keep repeating.  You've resorted several times to outright namecalling and you've taken over the thread by not simply respecting my comments that I prefer the other players over Jordan.  You've threatened to rage quit several times.  By all means, do so for real.

Yeah i should just stop. i didnt rage or namecalling. Theres no point having a discussion with someone who lie or just giving false information. Jordan didnt need the best rebounder or 6th man to win championship . If you saw his first 3 peat you would know. Laters

Well, it was a real nail biter, but the Warriors manage to stay alive (at least for now) and force a Game 6 back at Oracle.



These refs….fuck me are they shit



Regardless of the outcome, Game 6 will be the very last game ever played at Oracle Arena.



Happy that warriors won. We have more games to look forward to. Raptors should still win it because durant wont be back

Ugh! How disappointing.



Kevin Durant was spotted leaving Game 5 in crutches and a boot.
Now THAT looks like a torn Achilles.

Well, he should get respect for trying to come back and help his team win, but it looks like his body had different plans. And if it really is his Achilles like I believe, that would be absolutely devastating to him.



On the Durant injury, I'd just like to say, as someone who doesn't particularly like him, the Toronto crowd was disgusting. They cheered the fuck out of him going down, and then tried to make up for it after by applauding and chanting his name as if they weren't deliriously gleeful moments earlier. It was pretty shameful.

Its devastating indeed. I felt like he shouldnt be dribbling the ball to get to the basket. He should have just catch and shoot the whole game and no one can stop him because of his size and length 



That's a shocking win. Honestly did not see that coming.

I'm conflicted. I don't want the raptors to win because I have zero respect for them after their mental collapse against Lebron James last year. And I don't care for the Warriors getting a 3-peat.
