They would be about as tarnished as the Heats championships based on the fact that 3 super stars got together and said lets make a super team.

"History" would then have the same things to say about those teams as are said about the Rockets teams. But it shouldn't cheapen the experience or memory of your team winning a title.

95 Rockets vs Jordan would have been epic if Jordan plays the full year.

I still choose to believe Jordan wins out.

So you are saying that there is in fact a slight cheapness if you will to those championships?

re: Are the Rocket's championships tarnished?


man okietiger you are sooooooo mad right now this is comical. You were hating on me and mattz the other day after we won game 4 saying OKC was in trouble then we win again last night and you say our titles are tarnished?

First off MJ was back in the eastern conference playoffs in 1995 but Shaq and penny dusted him and the bulls and the rockets became the first 6 seed to win a title....yes 6 seed meaning at least 10 teams in the league that year had a better record and they overcame alot to win that title.....the performance hakeem had vs david robinson in the WCF after robinson won the MVP was LEGENDARY there is no other word, go watch youtube clips of it

Jordan is the GOAT of all time in my book but as a rockets fan you can't discount what hakeem did winning the MVP,DPOY and the finals in 1993 his supporting cast was

Otis Thorpe
Robert Horry
Vernon Maxwell
Kenny Smith
Scott Brooks
Sam Cassell
Carl herrera
matt bullard
mario elie

Hakeem won a title with no damn help.....how's that make you feel about your little crybaby superstar Durant when you say the thunder can't BEAT MEMPHIS without westbrook??? Hakeem had clyde in 1995 but he did it on his own in 1994

SO STFU please, youre just so butthurt its



and PS rockets owned the bulls back in the day, vernon maxwell and elie were a helluva defender duo and bill wennington,luc longley or whoever manned the bulls 5 would have been a joke on the dream

Those saying no, consider my hypothetical:

No one. But is he really going to be able to out-score Jordan?

Hey, get it all out man. You seem to have a lot of pent up aggression.

And Jordan arrived to the Bulls on March 18, 1995. To consider him at his normal playing level that year is just silly. Consider his next 3 seasons if there's any questions he wasn't at his normal ability.

And fwiw, those Rockets teams were awesome and I loved watching them as a kid.

Whew. That's quite a statement considering what Jordan did his entire career, especially in the playoffs.

Vernon Maxwell

Always seemed to give Jordan a tough time.
