To say Jordan didnt have a rival is stupid.. Jordan was in the league six or seven years before he won that title... goes to show he got bounced out the playoffs a few years by the Pistons, Celtics, etc...Then when he came back, he had a short rivalry with Magic who bounced him.. And had to battle Miami and the Pacers... the only team I can remember from the 90's to take the Bulls to a game seven!
After 1990 Jordan had no equal... The Pistons in the 80's was his only true rivalry... But once he beat them they never beat him again...
The Magic were not a rivalry... They beat the Bulls 1 year and never again... They lost like 9 of the next 10 games against the Bulls...
Just because people say he didnt lose doesnt mean literally he didnt lose another game dont be retarded... But Main Event is right a rivalry is where you go back and forth with something... I dont think pushing a team to game 7 automatically considers it a rivalry... I mean the Pacers and Knicks were the only ones who challenged the bulls so thats why it was such a big then but it wasnt really a rivalry
