Thats a pretty strong statement considering the players that have worn a Bulls Uniform.Sam Smith ranks it as one of the top ten individual Bull's performances ever.
I don't think Smith is considering a couple things when talking about best "individual performance ever."Sam Smith ranks it as one of the top ten individual Bull's performances ever.
What Smith is doing is taking something that matters and acting like it doesn't. The teams prowess when accomplishments are made statistically matters. There's a reason Dominique Wilkins didn't make the NBA top 50. You need some measure of team success; even a Finals appearance, for statistical lines to matter.Youre looking at it in your own way. Sam Smith is not comparing the performance to certain game situations....but merely looking at the stat line. It was a crazy good game, period. Yes, it goes down as one the best ever if performed in game 7 of the finals, but that's not the point here.
And trust me, Sam Smith will be the last person to marginalize the Jordan era Bulls.

Yeah, you're right. He's talking about "individual performances" when he should be talking about purely statistical performances.I don't know... I still remember a 20/20 game (or close to it) from Aaron Gray against Toronto... though apparently Sam Smith had to remind me of that Marcus Fizer game...
I think people may be getting a bit too worked up over a portion of the article that is basically about box scores.... this stuff about the importance of the game is just a different conversation than the one Smith is having.
