Presented is a wonderful way to celebrate the start of the second Chicago Bulls' Three-Peat. The Bulls won the NBA Championship in 1990-91, 1991-92, and 1992-93 for their first three championships in a row. Then Michael Jordan retired in 1993-94 after the death of his father, and Jordan played minor league baseball and the Bulls did not win the championship in that season nor in the next (1994-95), when Jordan came out of retirement but was available for only 17 games at the end of the regular season. But with the rust out of his system, Jordan returned to his peak skills in 1995-96 to start another amazing run of three NBA Championships in a row. Players signing the Spalding Official Size and Weight NBA Indoor/Outdoor basketball: Michael Jordan, in silver marker in large, flowing script, and then all the other signatures in black marker: Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman. Toni Kukoc, Luke Longley, Bill Wennington, Steve Kerr, John Salley, Bob Love, Ron Harper, Jack Haley, Jud Buchler, Randy Brown, James Edwards. and Dickie Simpkin. Some collectors may remember this Bulls team, and undoubtedly millions of others saw this many players on this squad on a segment of the television documentary The Last Dance. The team raced through the regular season with a 72-10 record and then went 15-3 in the playoffs, winning the Championship by four games to two against the Seattle Supersonics. Jordan led the league in scoring average at 30.4 PPG, and Dennis Rodman had the highest total rebound average at 14.9. The ball comes displayed inside a removable cube of clear, hard plastic, measuring approximately 10x10x10". All things Jordan are in demand. The signed ball comes with a BGS Letter of Authenticity for all of the 15 signatures. A basketball in excellent condition signed by Michael Jordan, the consensus NBA GOAT, and his NBA Championship teammates - who were destined for an amazing second Three-Peat - is a valued remembrance.
