    So your producers never saw point guard Kevin Johnson owning the DPOY / MVP Olajuwon in 1994? That was even better than Pippen over Ewing. And Karl Malone over Robinson was just awesome. Wade over Varejao too.

I'm glad this man is on TV now. I'm happy for his success. Hes brought my family and I many memorable sports moments.

  • asterisk911
    asterisk911 27 days ago

    What I remember about #1 is that it happened in the same series in which Pippen sat out a final play pouting because he didn't get the play called for him, and Kukoc scored anyway and they won; and Pippen fouled a jump shooter at the end of another game and put him on the line; and Pippen had good 1st-3rd quarter numbers in that series but the Knicks shut him down in the 4th; and the Bulls lost the series. (And I'm certain that Pippen remembers these things even more clearly than I do). But it is definitely a memorable dunk.
