During his days with the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards, who are three often forgotten teammates of shooting guard Michael Jordan?
In the midst of the release of the 10-part ESPN/ABC documentary series featuring the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls-title winning team, called “The Last Dance”, there’s a lot of evolving storylines and look backs on Michael Jordan‘s legendary career right now. That was the final NBA Championship that the Bulls would win of the 1990’s, and Jordan would retire for the second time after that season.
So many great teams were spearheaded by Jordan in the Windy City in the 1990’s. The Bulls won six titles in total, each of which Jordan was leading the way. He would not get another up to this point as a player, executive, or owner of any team.
Every step of the way with the Bulls, Jordan had a great supporting cast of teammates including forwards Dennis Rodman and Scottie Pippen and center Horace Grant. Even prior to the years where he was winning all those titles for the Bulls, Jordan had some decent supporting casts that saw him play with the likes of Charles Oakley and George Gervin. Granted that was the last year that Gervin would play in the NBA to cap his Hall-of-Fame career.
Jordan would officially end his playing days in the NBA following the 2002-03 season. That would be his third retirement from the NBA, with his second team. Jordan capped his career with the Washington Wizards, playing two seasons in the nation’s capital. There’s not a whole lot of postseason success for the Jordan fans to boast from, though.
Here’s a look into the three teammates in the career of Chicago Bulls legendary shooting guard Michael Jordan that are often forgotten nowadays.
