Is there any doubt the Bulls would have continued their streak of NBA Championships if Michael Jordan hadn't retired to play baseball? The Bulls had won three consecutive championships before Jordan left and won three more in a row once he came back. With Jordan and the Bulls out of the picture, the Rockets beat the Knicks in 7 games to capture the Championship in 1994. The Bulls had eliminated the Knicks the years prior years en route to winning the title.

Jordan was back for the tail-end of the 1995 season, but not even his Airness could turn things around for the Bulls that quickly. They lost to the Magic who were then swept by the Rockets.
