    Yeah, not realistic though since it wasn't even close to happening. One team won 1 game. It would be a different story had they won 3 games. In fact the Lakers were the first team to lose 3 in a row at home.

    Ineresting question......because it would have been Magic's 6th championship and first without Kareem which really elevates him. It knocks one off of Jordan's ring number had history stayed the course and he retires in 93. It would have forever made Magic the only man to beat MJ in the finals.

    They also lost two key members of that team in the finals. Anyways, just saying.

    But I'm not making excuses, Bulls won and no what if is gonna change that.

    Worthy averaged 41 mpg and played the first 4 games of the series.
    Scott averaged 35 mpg and played the first 4 games of the series.

    Bulls were up 3-1 by that point. Not to mention when Worthy left the game in game 4 the Bulls were already up 15 points.
    And Scott got straight locked up. Dude shot 28% FG with MJ on him.

    The Bulls were up 2-1 at that point. They got hurt in game 4 and even with their injuries the Lakers cut it to 7 but it was too much to over come especially with Worthy. You seem to refuse to acknowledge the fact that the possibility of a comeback existed had they remained healthy for the outcome of that series. It hurt the Lakers. Except for that game 2 blowout, it was a series of spurts and runs for both teams. Losing key players are still factors. Neither of us could ever prove one way or another.

    Yes I mentioned that in game 4 it happened but I also mentioned the Bulls were up 2-1 in the series and up by 15 when they were in the game. Actually it was 74-58. Lakers did cut it 7 though. If the Lakers were going to win the series they needed to win game 3 when the series was tied. Once the Bulls won game 3 it was over.
    Also I do think the Lakers would have won game 5 had Worthy and Scott played, but it would have been over in game 6. I actually wanted to win at home as well.
