    I heard Jordan would frequently go up to Russ and say "have a good game Byron" right before tip off.

    Wasn’t shocked to see mailman absent... from onset if Russ didn’t want to do it because he’s gained 400 lbs.

    Also this is a note to all parents... if you give your kid a common name with a dumbass spelling then people will screw it up they whole life. Don’t be dumb.

    Tangentially, Shandon Anderson was the guy who always sort of disappointed me from those teams. I say disappointed because I saw some solid natural ability in him and it felt like once or twice a game, he'd miss a layup or do something dumb which just gnawed at me.

    I actually liked Anderson quite a bit. After rewatching a bunch of those 97 and 98 finals (nothing else to do during quarantine), I think Anderson did the best job guarding MJ. He was athletic and tenacious. Why we consistently let Hornacek and Russell guard him was beyond me. They got absolutely cooked. It was also apparent how often Russ tried to gamble and got burnt, resulting in easy bulls baskets. There were so many chances the jazz had to win either of those series it's truly depressing.

    Also, I think Sloan should've tinkered with those lineups more. You had Russell getting cooked by MJ while 6'4 Hornacek was guarding Scottie Pippen in the post (lol). He should've sent whoever was guarding Rodman to double every single possession.... Hindsight is 20/20 I guess

    And Antoine Carr protecting the rim (in the last sequence) of Game 6.

    It comes down to Malone just can't turn the ball over there. You are up 1 and don't milk the clock or get a shot up. MJ did what Russell did... he gambled... if Karl was more aware that should result in a layup or open jumper.

    Also, the whole story changes if Stockton's miss somehow just rattles in... it was right there. MJ was amazing... he's the GOAT... his legend has some luck to it doe.

    Sometimes he provided the only offense we had off the bench with the second unit though

    Sloan's coaching rigidity had every bit as much as anything else to do with why we lost those. Stubbornly refuse to take time outs untill the lead was gone. Refuse to deviate in the least from the plan, like he always expected them to guard their man, and completely missed opportunities like doubling off rodman. So many reasons why we lost those finals.

    On MJ's steal if that had been a decent player making that play a foul is called. But it was MJ and he was special. There was enough contact on that play that MJ would have been ejected and called for fifteen yards if it were today's NFL. Horrible officiating.
