Just for the record, it was not MJ's third game back from retirement. It was his fifth.

Last year's Lakers squad would not have made it to the playoffs, let alone the conference finals without Kobe Bryant. Since your history on the Bulls is so impeccable, how far did the Jordan-less Bulls go the season before his double nickel? Oh, and for the record, how many top 50 players of all time is Kobe currently playing with? Jordan lovers sure enjoy hating or actively forgetting Pippen...sheesh. And John Starks? Are you freaking kidding me? Kobe would have made baby-faced Starks a footnote in a historic game as well. Starks sucked. And Double Nickel is clever, but 61...that's just got so much history to it (think baseball).

double nickel was better. i can score 61 on d'antoni's teams.

Craig,
Obviously Laker fans are in the dumps about Bynum's injury. But dont take Bynum's delayed comeback from his first knee injury as a basis to say he will not be back this year. You are obviously not a doctor or a knee specialist for that matter (if you are why are you sitting in section 316???)Therefore you dont have any expertise to say that this type of knee injury takes longer than 8-12 weeks to heal for someone who is 7 feet tall. These are two entirely different knee injuries. Have a little faith, you act like it is set in stone that Bynum is out for the season.

... and I suppose LakeShow can make it back from a torn MCL to play pro basketball in 8-12 weeks RIGHT in time for the most grueling time of the year.. the playoffs.

LakeShow

Jay,
Whats your point? I do not play basketball for a living. But if a doctor told me I had a torn MCL and that if I followed a specific rehab program everyday with the assistance of personal trainers etc etc. I would be able to return to the sport of basketball in said time frame then I would not have any reason to think otherwise. Obviously Bynum coming back right before or in the middle of the playoffs is not ideal (yes it is safe to say he would not pick up where he left off and some sort of chemistry would have to be re-established.) But that is not the same as saying he will not be back for the season. Some contribution from bynum especially against the powerhouses of the east if we were to get to the finals cant hurt. I also assume then that you would have never thought that someone with a partial tear of an MCL that required a minimum of 6 weeks would return in 4 and in the first game back put up 14 points in 20 min of play going 5-7 from the field and 2-3 from the three point line and consistently driving into the paint...but farmar did...

"...how far did the Jordan-less Bulls go the season before his double nickel?"

They won 55 games and lost in the second round of the playoffs to the Knicks on that Hubert Davis/Scottie Pippen BS. Any other questions because that one didn't work like you wanted it to.

Jordan Ikeda

IFChris, yes it did...you're obviously not paying attention.

pterodactyl wingspan guard Diaw at the three-pt line? No! Time to go with defensive stopper middle of the playoffs is not ideal (yes it is safe to say he would not pick up where he left off and some sort of chemistry would have to be re-established.) But that is not the same as saying he will not be back for the season. Some contribution from bynum especially against the powerhouses of the east if we were to get to the finals Luke Walton, leaving
