On June 16, 1996 the Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen led Bulls capped off the most Memorable run ever in the Logo. The handed a game Seattle Supersonics Team that was absolutely loaded with the Likes of the "Glove"...Logo Point God Gary Payton and the "Rain Man" Shawn Kemp, and the original Duetsche Marks Detlef Schrempf...that's right move over DIRKliscious of the Mavs...Detlef was Dead On most of the time.
The Bulls held off the Sonics in convincing fashion with an 87-75 Win in front of the new Madhouse on Madison...the United Center. A great Father's Day Present for All Father's of both Teams as well as Hoop Addicts across the Globe. Check out the Leading Stats in this Game 6 between the Bulls and Sonics:
Points Detlef 23 Air Jordan 22
Rebounds Rain Man 14 the Worm 19
Assts the Glove 7 Air Jordan 7
Bulls Logo Record 72 Wins in a Season
( They almost repeated that feat of 70 Wins in 1996-97 but won 69)
The 1st Championship with the Bulls Big 3...Jordan, Pippen, and the Worm...they traveled like the Beatles in those Seasons
Jordan wore my Favorite J's of All-Time...the 11 (XI) the Patent-Leather Joints...Hottie Hot...On Fire
The Seattle Supersonics were my other Team as the Love for the Glove, Rain Man, Detlef, Captain Nate McMillan (2012 USA National Team Coach), and Coach Karl.
It was important to see the Bulls back on Top again after the Jordan Comeback and some had a little bit of doubt that they could do it again.
Then the Bluedude's Favorite Painting in my Sports Collection (Left) by Artist Spinz in '96 from Chicago, Illinois...the Bulls Player Pip, the Worm, Jordan, and Kukoc.....woth Luc Longley Holding the Bulls Flag (with the #72 for Wins on the Bottom Right Corner of the Flag), with Spider Man Salley, Bill Weenington, Kerr, Bueschler, Randy Brown holding the Pole to the Flag. Ron Ron Harper and James Buddha Edwards ripping apart the Rain Man's Home Sonic's Jersey #40. So much Symoblism to the Season and the Painting captures it all.......
