Purely in terms of per game stats and efficiency, who were the three worst players on “The Last Dance” Chicago Bulls team?

The wait is almost over for fans of the Chicago Bulls and beyond for the premier of the ESPN 10-part documentary series that is getting ultra-hyped up of late called “The Last Dance”. Set to premier on April 19 in two parts starting at 8 p.m. ET, The Last Dance will feature all-time great shooting guard Michael Jordan and his 1997-98 title team that was the last run during the dynasty years.

Under the direction of head coach Phil Jackson, the Bulls won their last NBA Championship of the 1990’s, which was their sixth of the decade. Jackson was the one who coined this particular team with the term “The Last Dance” since the likes of Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and Dennis Rodman would be done in the Windy City at season’s end.

The Bulls would officially enter the first of the rebuild years during the 1998-99 season since all the talent from the dynasty teams was mostly gone. Jordan would enter retirement for the second of three total times during his NBA career. Pippen and Rodman would both land in other spots the following season too.

While it is hard to pick apart the flaws of the 1997-98 Bulls team, which finished the regular season with a record of 62-20 and won the Central Division yet again, there are always weak spots with the best of rotations. The Bulls started to lose some of the youth and depth that made their rotations more notable in the earlier years of the 1990’s.

Here’s a look into the three worst players that played in at least 15 games for the Chicago Bulls 1997-98 “The Last Dance” team.
