    Thomas pretty much nudered Max with Pippen being the top 50 player all time and Zeke being by himself. Pippen played that game 7 with his "migraine" Bulls lost by 19 points, Pistons controlled the whole game. Jordan had 31- 8 - 8. Max is deceiving almost implying Pippen didn't play, and headaches are pretty common athletes play with them all the time lol.

    If we did not lose Rick Mahorn to the expansion team Minnesota we would have won another championship. BAD BOYS

    What they fail to realize is that the Pistons has to go through the Boston Celtics and the Los Angles Lakers. Which were considered two of the best teams and franchises. You cannot ignore that. They went through wars with both teams. Scottie hates Isaiah because Scottie is a second fiddle and Isaiah is a transcendent player who should have been on the dream team one.

    This is a big insult to the raptors and to nicks game plan. Kawhi was valuable in defending giannis but no more than gasol or serge

    we need a beef history about the piston and bulls

  • SuperJohn12354

    I don't think Giannis could be Jordan, but he could def be Wilt + Shack, which could end up being better than Jordan, hard to say yet, like you need to dominate your opponent every single game and play hard every night at both ends of the court, that's very difficult to sustain, that's why Jordan is the GOAT.

    To counter Thomas’s top 50 argument, Jordan played with 1 Hall of Fame player in Pippen. Thomas played with 2 Hall of Fame players in Dumars and Rodman.

    Then he retires at a ripe old age of 33 after experiencing the bulls' dominance. Lol quitter

    Always been an Isiah fan, but if he wasn't so stuck on what he stuck on, his points would be more valid. Max says that the first time MJ played with an all star look what happened. But, then he goes straight to Pippen being an all time top 50. Come on Isiah, you had Vinny, Dumars, and should i go one. Too stuck in his feelings about them and the Bulls.

    Unfortunately Isiah is right . They beat the bulls 3 out of 4 playoff series.but overall Chicago was much better than Detroit in both there primes . Pistons late 80,s and bulls in the 90’s

    Jordan was the best player, but Pistons had the better team. Giannis is currently best player,but he's not into the best team.
