The UNKNOWN Chicago Bulls Championship Team Members Of The 1990's

0 of 33

    Ed Nealy (pictured) along with a load of other former Chicago Bulls were the true key to the team's success and six titles in the 1990's—not Michael Jordan.

    Just kidding: It was all MJ—six time Finals MVP.

    We all remember Pippen too, and BJ Armstrong, John Paxson, Bill Cartwright, Horace Grant, Toni Kukoc, Dennis Rodman, Luc Longley, Ron Harper and Steve Kerr; but these are the guys from the 1991, '92, '93, '96, '97 and 1998 championship teams (or regular season roster) that no one remembers

    So I toggle your memory here—just to remember the GOAT and how crappy his teammates really were.

Craig Hodges, G

1 of 33

    In 1991, Craig Hodges played in 17 playoff games for the Bulls first championship. He averaged 4.7 pts in 12.3 minutes. He was a spot-up shooter who specialized in threes. He also played 17 games in the 1992 playoff title run and averaged 2.5 pts in 8.1 minutes a game.

Dennis Hopson G

2 of 33

    Hopson always seemed like he was going to pop off but never did. He played five games for the 1991 champs in the playoffs averaging 1.6 pts in 3.6 minutes. In the 1992 regular season, he played two games and averaged 1.0 ppg.

Stacey King, F/C

3 of 33

    King wasn't reliable. I remember clearly he was just big. In 1991, he played in 11 playoff games and averaged 2.1 pts, 2.0 reb in 7.8 min. In 1992, he played 14 playoff games and averaged 3.8 pts in 7.9 min. In 1993, played in 19 playoff games and averaged 4.1 pts in 12.1 min. Three-time champion.

Clif Levingston, F

4 of 33

    Levingston was fun to watch, especially when Jordan did something sick! Which, was, like, always. He played in 17 playoff games in 1991 and averaged 2.6 pts, 2.4 reb in 11.3 min. In 1992 he averaged 2.9 pts in 8.7 min in 22 playoff games. Two-time champ.

Will Perdue, C

    Perdue...was hilarious. The seven-footer averaged 4.1 pts, 3.8 rebs in 11.6 min in 17 playoff games in 1991. In 1992, he played in 18 playoff games and averaged 2.5 pts, 2.2 reb in 8.7 min. In 1993, he played in 13 postseason games and averaged 1.9 pts and 2.3 reb in 7.8 min. Fan favorite.

Scott Williams, C/F

6 of 33

    In 1991, he played in 12 playoff games and averaged 1.9 pts and 1.7 reb in 6.0 min. In 1992, he played in 22 playoff games and averaged 4.0 pts and 4.3 reb in 14.1 min. In 1993, he played in 19 playoff games and averaged 5.5 pts, 5.8 reb in 20.8 min. I liked his hustle.

Chuck Nevitt, C

7 of 33

    This 7'5" freak played four regular season games for the 1992 Bulls. He didn't get a ring for it..that I know of. He averaged 0.5 pts in those four games.

Rory Sparrow, G

8 of 33

    He played with Jordan earlier in the GOAT's career. He played with him agin in the 1992 regualr season for four games and he averaged 0.8 pts. Nice.

Mark Randall, F

9 of 33

    Randall played 15 regular season games for the Bulls in 1992 and averaged 1.7 pts. He played 15 games with Jordan—awesome!

Trent Tucker, G

10 of 33

    Tucker played on the 1993 championship team, as he replaced Hodges, who was mysteriously gone. He did the same thing as Hodges by hitting threes. He played in 19 playoff games that year and averaged 2.8 pts in 10.9 min.

Darrell Walker, G

11 of 33

    This guy averaged almost a triple-double a few years before while with the Bullets. But you don't know that do you? Why would you? You are all about hype. Walker was way toned down by the Bulls in the 1993 playoffs, and he played nine games and averaged 0.4 pts, 0.6 ast in 2.4 minutes. Wow!

Rodney McCray, F

12 of 33

    McCray averaged over 20 ppg with Sac. before he came to the Bulls in 1993. In the 1993 playoffs, he played in seven games and averaged 1.9 rebounds in 5.6 minutes. Fabulous!

Ed Nealy, F

13 of 33

    This wide bodies man played 11 games for the 1993 Bulls in only the regular season. He averaged 2.1 pts. He played with the Bulls years before, and Jordan really liked him. I do too. Nealy rules man.

Jo Jo English, G

14 of 33

    Not to be confused with Alex English who was a great player. Alex scored more total points than any player in the entire 1980s combined, which of course you don't know. Jo Jo, on the other hand played six regular season games for the 1993 Bulls and averaged 1.0 pt. I don't blame you for now knowing that, but I do blame you for not knowing about Alex English. Sad.

Ricky Blanton, F

15 of 33

    Uh...He played in two regular season games for the 1993 Bulls and that's it. He averaged 3.0 pts in those two games. Pretty good, eh?

    In 1993, Williams scored 2.3 points in 35 regular season games. Jordan actually liked this kid. He mentioned him in his 1993 thanks for the title speech, right after the game. He also mentioned Nealy. Nice.

Joe Courtney, F

17 of 33

    He played in five games for the 1993 Bulls and averaged 2.2 pts.

Bill Wennington, C

18 of 33

    Wennington was useful for the Bulls, but I can't remember why. He played 18 games in the 1996 playoffs and scored 3.0 pt on 9.4 min. In 1998, he played in 16 playoff games and put in 3.8 pts in 12.4 minutes.

Judd Buechler, G/F

19 of 33

    Judd just sat around and watched Jordan school the hell outta everyone. Well, that's what it seemed like. In 1996, he played 17 playoff games and scored 2.7 pts in 7.5 min. In 1997, he scored 1.8 pts in 7.7 mins in 18 playoff games. He also played 16 playoff games in the 1998 playoff and scored 0.7 pts in 4.0 mins.

Randy Brown, G

20 of 33

    Brown was always around, kind of like a cheerleader. In the 1996 playoffs, he scored 2.8 pts in 7.0 mins in 16 games. In 1997, he played 17 games and scored 1.2 points in 5.8 mins in the playoffs. In the 1998 title run, he scored 0.6 pts in 5.1 mins in 14 games.

John Salley, C/F

21 of 33

    Salley had title experience from his 'Bad Boy' Pistons games. That's why he was on the 1996 Bulls, I guess. In the playoffs, he played 16 games and averaged 0.9 pts in 5.3 minutes.

James Edwards, C/F

22 of 33

    This another guy who had title experience as a 'Bad Boy' Piston. He was also on the 1996 Bulls. In the playoffs, he played six games and averaged 1.8 pts in 4.7 min.

Jack Haley, C/F

    Haley played one game in the 1996 regular season for the Bulls. He scored five points in that game!

Jason Caffey, F

24 of 33

    Caffey was an adequate player who had some intensity, skill and power. He played 57 regular season games for the 1996 Bulls and averaged 3.2 pts. In 1997 he actually played in the playoffs for 17 games and averaged 2.4 pts, 2.5 reb in 9.8 min. In 1998, he played 51 regular season games for the Bulls and averaged 5.3 pts and 3.4 reb.

Dickey Simpkins, F

25 of 33

    Simpkins played in 60 regular season games for the 1996 Bulls and averaged 3.5 pts. In 1997, he only played in the regular season for 48 games, and he scored 1.9 pts per night. In 1998, he played in 13 playoff games and scored 1.2 pts in 5.7 min.

Bison Dele, F/C

26 of 33

    His name was previously Brian Williams, and when he was Bison Dele, he played an integral part of their inside game. He played in 19 playoff games in 1997 and scored 6.1 pts, 3.7 reb in 17.7 min. He was a really good player.

Robert Parish, C

27 of 33

    This living legend was on the 1997 Bulls title team. He was 43-years-old at the time! He had already won multiple titles with the Celtics before this. In the playoffs, he averaged 1.0 pt and 2.0 reb in 9.0 min.

Matt Steigenga, F

28 of 33

    This guy played two games in the 1997 regular season for the Bulls. Does that make him a champion? He scored 1.5 ppg.

Scott Burrell, G/F

29 of 33

    He played 21 playoff games for the Bulls in 1998 and scored 3.8 pts in 12.4 mins.

    This undersized center had title team experience from before, but he only played 46 games of the regular season for the Bulls in 1998 and scored 2.0 ppg.

    Booth played in six regular season games for the Bulls in 1998 and scored 1.7 ppg.
