Michael Jordan's first ring back in 1991 beating the Lakers with the famous layup we all know adore and see.
Actually going back to these games and the closeness of all but the second game, and the nailbiter that was game 3(I watch that game with the Laker fan in me still hoping Jordan misses that final shot before OT lol) it leads me to a very particular question.
Do the Bulls beat the Lakers if Scott and Worthy aren't injured? Now those who remember the pivotal game(4) remember Jordan's spectacular play and the lead Chicago had but they also remember how the Lakers closed the gap to 7 without both Worthy and Scott on the floor. It got me to thinking, those were two HUGE HUGE blows to the Lakers as a whole and at that point who did they really have to rely on aside from Magic? Who in the next game got his 20 assists despite not having Worthy or Scott out there.
But I think it's a legitimate question. Do the Bulls beat the Lakers without the absense of Byron Scott and James Worthy to injury?
I'd love to hear you guys opinions on this.
Also remember the history of Phil Jackson never losing a series when he wins the first game? The Lakers won the first game in this series. Overall the series is a classic. I just would like to know the other posters opinions.
Do the Bulls beat the Lakers in 91 if Worthy and Scott are healthy?
