In fact, only the Lakers and the Celtics have won more championships than the Bulls. You can attribute that to Jordan and whatnot, but he did not come to the league and start winning championships. A core of players and coaches had to be put around him in order to give the team the best chance to be successful. And, all of that happened as a result of great ownership and management. Beyond the dynasty years we have had some runs in the playoffs and some bad moments, but in the end the Bulls organization has been a well-run organization.
By the way, I believe great players choose not to sign with the Bulls because they realize that they will never have their way with this type of ownership, as even Jordan or Phil Jackson could not get their ways.For instance, all the **** LeBron and his circle got away with in Cleveland would never happen in Chicago. He would never have the influence to have us resign JR Smith, Tristan Thompson, among others, for that kind of money. This is actually the untold story of why great players are not coming to Chicago via free-agency.
So basically you are saying that star players won’t come to the Bulls because of how the organization is run. If the organization can’t bring stars in how is it a great organization?
