Discipline, dedication and desire were the hallmarks of the Chicago Bulls of the 1990s. Capturing six (6) NBA titles between 1991and 1998, the Bulls were the most dominant and arguably the greatest basketball team ever assembled. Enjoy over 15 hours of spectacular highlights from those Championship seasons on 4 discs. And for the first time ever on DVD, see the greatest Finals games in Bulls championship history.
Over the course of 15 hours on four double-sided DVDs, Chicago Bulls: The 1990s documents the Bulls' incredible run of six NBA championships in eight years led by the game's greatest-ever player, Michael Jordan. Like the earlier DVD release Ultimate Jordan, it collects a number of programs originally released on VHS, in this case the yearly highlight videos that summarized each of the six championship seasons, plus a five-minute introduction that covers the franchise starting in the 1960s and ending with its drafting of Jordan.
Where the NBA Dynasty series (the other initial entry is the slightly meatier Los Angeles Lakers: The Complete History) outdoes Ultimate Jordan is in the six playoff games--one for each year--as they were originally broadcast, minus halftime and commercials. Having the nearly complete game (usually running 90-100 minutes, from the TV introductions to post-game interviews) means you can skip straight to John Paxson's clutch basket or what was expected to be the final shot of Jordan's career. Or you can savor each game in its entirety, all the better to appreciate the artistry of Jordan in his three-pointer barrage against Portland or his "flu game" against Utah. You can see other great players too, of course, including Jordan's teammates--Scottie Pippen, Horace Grant, Dennis Rodman--and those opponents unfortunate enough to face the Bulls--Clyde Drexler, Charles Barkley, John Stockton, Karl Malone, and others. Because these are all NBA Finals games, you won't see Jordan's shot over Craig Ehlo or his 63-point coming-out party against Boston, but the 1990s Chicago Bulls were a team for the ages, and merely having their games--some of them all-time classics--available for home viewing is a major milestone in archived sports. --David Horiuchi

In this set we are treated to a number of features, including a "history" of the bulls, along with recaps of each of their championships and six "complete" games, one from each of their championship runs.
Why they entitled the "history of the chicago bulls," as they did is beyond me. This is no history. This is a brief rundown of their lack of a championship with an extremely short runtime and a mention of Jordan as a segway into the discs other features. This might actually be the only new content on the disc, as all of the other features (even the games) are taken from content that has ran on NBA TV for quite some time.
As for the recaps of each of their championship runs, they are certainly full of great footage and interviews but they certainly show their age as they are not new. As I said before, each of these has already been broadcast on NBA TV numerous times and if you've seen it once the suspense is lacking. Replay value is at a minimum here.
While listed as the "Extra Features," the games featured on the set are actually the bread and butter. Presented just as they were when originally broadcast the quality of the games is superb. But wait. What's this? They slice out parts of the games? You'll find yourself wondering what happened when you miss an entire 8 minutes of the first quarter. Why? Because the games, too, are part of the "NBA's Greatest Games" series broadcast on NBA TV and were edited to run in the time alotted by that channel.Read more ›
I'm not complaining but I think the choices of games were more A than A+. A small point but one I hope the NBA will look at as they continue these "Dynasty" series sets.
I purchased both NBA Dynasty Series DVD sets of the Lakers and Bulls. I watched one game from each set; Game 1 of Lakers vs. Sixers, and Game 6 of Bulls vs. Jazz. I was in awe of watching Lakers vs. Sixers from 1982. Just nonstop action, fast breaking and great fundamental plays from both teams. There was no constant one on one play or numerous isolations from one player or launching three pointers from 30 feet. These two teams stayed within themselves, took the open shot when they needed to. It amazes me that they could hit the perimeter shot with ease, whereas today's players have a very difficult time doing. That was a great game, the best the NBA could offer at that particular time.
I wish I could've said the same of Bulls vs. Jazz game 6. WAtching these two teams going long stretches of struggling to score, or make passes, or take clean shots, was painful to watch. Too much attention to fancy play and dunks has hurt the fundamentals of the players. This game was a perfect example. A lot of people want to compare the Bulls to the great teams of the 80's. Gimme a break. They couldn't compete with the Lakers of the 80's. Heck, they would have a very difficult time getting out of their own conference. The eastern conference was loaded in the early to mid 80's, with Boston, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, New York, Atlanta, etc. The bulls were perfect for the 90's, the era where the game began to decline.
I guess we can thank Pat Riley and the Knicks for that!!!
UnBULLievable - as always The BULLS Michael AIR Jordan Scottie Pippen Dennis Rodman Phil Jackson are !!!!!!
I personally call those four guys The Golden Four :-)
( For those who don't get it: gold in olympics means absolute undeniable indisputable etc... "numero uno" :-) )
(and all the rest of The Band: do not be a sinner and do not forget about Horace Grant, John Paxon, B.J. Armstrong,
Bill Wellington, Ron Harper, Steve Kerr, Luc Longley, Toni Kukoc, )
Face it - no one gets any better then The BULLS !!!!!!
(P.S. and so no one moves over The BULLS)
Simply - words are not enough, no wonder, it's The BULLS !!!!!!
By the way:
Creators of Amazon.com site seriously forgot about The BULLS when creating this "write a review" page
- hello, 5 stars ? - that's good for the Lakers (the Lakers I mean which is Karim's & Magic's Lakers) ;-)
Get a grip, at least 6 * * * * * * here !!!!!! ;-)
Anyone needs any explanation ? - I don't think so
OK, gotta go lace my AIR Jordans :-)
