IT’s amazing to think of what might have happened there.
Lets say that call isn’t made, the Bulls win game 5, close out the Knicks back at Chicago Stadium. They woned IND in the reg season. They go to the finals. Maybe they beat Houston. Who knows?
But they show they can do it without Jordan.
Does he even come back the next year? If they win without him. Does he come back for another team? Was he really suspended for gambling? Would a young Barack Obama have been so overjoyed in the championship celebration in Chicago he decides he’s wasting his time as Community organizer and decides to move into sports?
