How the Chicago Bulls self-destructed after Michael Jordan and Phil Jackson left

    I wonder, if Doug Collins had been available at the time, I believe Collins was coaching the Detroit Pistons in 1998 if the Bulls signed Doug Collins then MJ and Scottie would have probably remained in Chicago, maybe. The reason why I say that is because MJ and Scottie did have a close personal connection with Doug Collins, a great basketball mind. It's possible that Collins could have won a few more titles under the main core group of guys and some new, young talent in the mix. As great as Phil Jackson was, I felt Doug Collins got shafted at the worst possible time as the Bulls went up and winning 6 titles, similar to Mark Jackson's situation with the Golden State Warriors and Steve Kerr taking over.

    Lets remember that Krause is the dude who taught Paxson how to be a GM and Gar Forman how to scout.

    Bulls had so many opportunities after Jordan to rebuild and become contenders again. But they kept messing up draft picks, and the good draft picks they had, they traded away??? Just take 99, they draft Elton Brand #1 and then Ron Artest later. that is 2 good draft picks. in 00' they draft Marcus Fizer, i have no clue why the hell you would when you just drafted Brand #1 the year before?? then Chris Mihm, but then trade him for Jamal Crawford. So overall, they had the #4 and #7 and #24 overall picks in 2000 draft. WTF? what should have been. SMH. Already have PF Brand and SF Artest from 99 draft. So need a C, SG, PG, right? #4 pick should have been Chris Mihm, i remember back in 2000. he was the best C in the draft, a shot blocker, had a good outside shot and inside game. #7 pick should have been Quentin Richardson. Was at DePaul, chicago based guy, he would have been well received by the fan base.

    I used to blame Krause for the demise because it was so no-brainer to give MJ what he wanted...but in retrospect, owner Reinsdorf is really the one who blew it here...for whatever reason, he let MJ walk even though he and MJ had a great relationship...baffling

    Derrick Rose is the only notable player that seemed reminiscent of MJ in the 90's.

  • alex1vid

    As a huge Bulls fan that lived and breathed it - just a few things.... 1: Harper used to be a 2 guard. Had some knee issues before, but was one of the only 2 guards (when healthy) that gave MJ problems. 2: Jordan AND Pippen were difficult personalities. Forget Rodman - those two were tough to deal with from a GM standpoint. Jordan would chew up & spit out new players (Dennis Hopson, Rodney McCray). Not everyone wanted (or could) to play with Jordan. But Krause's shrewdness is what deteriorated the relationships. 3: You can NEVER do this type of video about the Bulls without mentioning the 'other' Jerry (Reinsdorf). THAT Jerry is the one that infamously said... while they were about to win another title... "I really want to win one without Michael." Krause gets a bad rap sometimes (IMHO) becuase some of the blame for their collapse has to go to the owner. 4: Rebuilding and getting free-agents despite massive cap space proved far more difficult than they thought given the enormous shadow of Jordan/Pippen.

      Exactly the point on number 3! I even think Reinsdorf doesn't even give two shits about the Bulls and even mentioned he favored the 2005 White Sox over the Dynasty Bulls. He shouldve defended Jackson but decides to stick with the wrong people which includes GarPax today. Those Dynasty Bulls were his money makers since they were winning championships along with MJ's superstardom and the team breaking records including the 96' season despite the Sox of those times playing decent enough and maybe made him decent enough money as well but never could go above second place in the AL Central and can could never catch up with the Indians and no playoff appearances from 95-99. If you're the owner of a multiple championship team what would/should you do to protect you're investments? Plus I think he's getting desperate knowing he has 2 failing teams. The Sox's rebuild does not even compare with the Cubs and an empty ballpark that only fills for the crosstown classic.The Bulls lost their greatest squad in almost 20 years, trading them away for draft picks, trading those picks for has been players, veterans from other teams that dont stay (like Wade) and head coaches (excluding Thib) who have no business being HC's or even be in the NBA for that matter (Hoiberg). Also all of a sudden hosting the all-star game. In the 25-26 years the UC has opened, he never wanted to host it but all of a sudden, he's allowing one? It's not just a new front office we need, it's a new owner!

    As a 90s kid, I watched the bulls win over and over and over and I HATED THEM! Looking back I can appreciate Jordan for what he did, but I don’t particularly feel bad for the city of Chicago or even Bull got to enjoy SIX World Championships, and the GREATEST player to ever play basketball...even if the Bulls never win another Title...that dynasty will forever be I hope they fully enjoyed it.

    Players and Coaches don't win championships, organizations do... SMH, Jerry Krause and Jerry Reinsdorf will never live that down. I watched the Bulls faithfully for a decade after the break up, and then stopped watching after Rose got hurt the Nth time. Mostly stopped watching because, NBA started sucking when strong players created super teams. Flopping became bigger and with zone and no hand checking players became less physical and more like And 1 players.

I am 41 and I still follow the Bulls. Scottie Pippen has 6 rings and so does Michael Jordan. And they won them together. Please do your research before you put out false information. And shame on you and everyone else making comments and they dont realize its false. Come on everyone, we are talking about the CHICAGO BULLS AN THE GREATEST PLAYER EVERRRRR>>>>>

    I believe if the 1998 Bulls stood together for the 1999 season they would have made the Finals since the lockout came there was more rest from the last season they could made another run and beat San Antonio in 6 games. Scottie Pippen was strong in the 1999 season and Jordan too still during practices. I think the Bulls should been like the Spurs and not change the team but let them age gracefully.
