1996 Bulls Legacy 
Posted on September 24, 2011 at 03:12 PM.
For the past three years there has been a Chicago Bull inducted into the Hall of Fame. All three of these individuals were apart of the 1996 team that went 72-10 (NBA record) in route to a fourth Bulls championship. I believe this is the greatest team to ever play in the NBA. If you consider the way that team was brought together that summer with former Detroit Pistons "Bad Boy" Dennis Rodman, who feuded with the Bulls in the late 80's early 90's, and Michael Jordan entering his first full season after retiring, this is quite an accomplishment. In a Dennis Rodman interview he explains that when he was being recruited by Phil Jackson and the Bulls the first thing he told Rodman was to apologize to Scottie for a hard foul that made Pippen fall into the crowds. Pippen forgave him. Phil then asked Rodman if he wanted to be a part of the Chicago Bulls, he said i don't care if I'm here or not. Phil took this as a yes and a championship team was born. In the three years they were together they won three championships and combined for a regular season record of 203 wins and 43 losses. They are one of the greatest trios of all-time and one can only speculate what they would have done had they been together in their primes.(all three were 30 years or older)

Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and Dennis Rodman entered the Hall of Fame in 2009,2010, and 2011, respectively. They each had an illustrious career. A career of champions if u will. Michael and Scottie each have six while Rodman has 5 (winning 2 earlier in his career with the Pistons). There is no doubt this is the greatest team of all time.

I agree, Greatest team ever. I'm glad they did accept Dennis into the hall of fame, think his connection to this team helped that alot. He's one of the best, if not the best rebounder of all time.
