Synopsis

Chicago Bulls fans thought they had it so good. From 1991 through 1993 the Bulls won three consecutive NBA titles behind the talents of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. When Jordan retired in the fall of 1993, those fans thought the good times were over. In the fall of 1995, however, Jordan was ready to make a full return to NBA action, Pippen was still the best number two man in basketball, and then bad-boy Dennis Rodman was signed to join the franchise that had grown to hate him. Suddenly, the Bulls had the greatest team in NBA history. Bill Wenningtons Tales from the Bulls Hardwood tells some of the inside stories from that team, the one that won three more NBA titles from 1996 through 1998. Seen from the eyes of three-time NBA champion center Bill Wennington, the Bulls come to life differently, from an insiders point of view. The 1995-96 Bulls won an NBA record 72 games and became the Beatles of professional sports. Followed everywhere and talked about endlessly, they captured a national and international audience and kept all eyes upon them for three seasons, even though everyone knew they were going to win. Fans will read about some of the most famous names in basketball history. Jordan, the demanding team leader; Pippen, the true teammate; Rodman, the reckless rebounder; Toni Kukoc, the outsider; Ron Harper, the former star turned role player; Luc Longley, the affable Aussie; Steve Kerr, the John Paxson sequel; all playing for Phil Jackson, the Zen master coach. These are stories fans have not heard before, but its not their fault. They just werent there the way Bill Wennington was.

Heavy on the nostalgia, not so much on the inside details. Nothing much new to anybody who was a fan at the time, but a nice trip down memory lane.
