Dennis Rodman Says The Chicago Bulls Would've Beaten The San Antonio Spurs In 1999 And Won 4 Championships In A Row

The Chicago Bulls dynasty ended in 1998, when they three-peated for the second time during the 90s, racking up six titles and becoming one of the biggest teams in NBA history. It was a good end for one of the best dynasties ever, but for one of their members, they could go a win at least one more title.

Dennis Rodman joined ESPN's 'First Take' where he declared the Chicago Bulls would have won the 1998/99 NBA championship if their core stayed together. The San Antonio Spurs were crowned NBA champions that season, led by the 'Twin Towers', Tim Duncan and David Robinson, but for Rodman, his team would have had a great chance at the title if they all were together.

"It was just sad in fact that we could have come back and won a fourth championship very easily," said Rodman.

That season was shortened and it didn't start until February. Plenty of fans believe that helped the aging Spurs win the title. Perhaps that would've helped the Bulls too, but we'll never know.

That series would have been amazing, with Jordan, Pippen, and Rodman going against Duncan and Robinson. It would have been great to see Phil Jackson and Gregg Popovich, the two best coaches in NBA history, facing each other in the big series.

In the end, the Bulls front office dismantled the team that won six championships and they've never been to the Finals again since that moment. The Spurs became a dynasty in the association as well, winning four more titles after the 1998/99 season.
