The National Basketball Association was completely dominated by the Chicago Bulls in the 1990s. Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Phil Jackson dictated the league, winning six championships together. Had Jordan's not retired in the 1994-1995 season, those six championships would have been consecutive.

Shortly after his father’s death, (and after winning three consecutive championships) Jordan retired from the NBA and decided to try to play professional baseball in the Chicago White Sox's minor league system. Although he was a respectable ballplayer he was not good enough for the "Big Show". He returned to the NBA after a year hiatus and went on to win three consecutive championships. Should he have stayed? No! He followed his heart and reached for his dream of playing major league baseball. Some say he was burned out from the game of basketball. Some say he did it for his father who loved baseball and always wanted his son to be a baseball player. Regardless, it was his decision ("Don't judge me monkey"). When he returned he came back with a vengeance. It was obvious that he missed the game and he did not lose a step. He led his Bulls to three more championships and solidified his grasp as the greatest basketball player of the 90s and arguably of all-time. Here are the Top 5 NBA Players of the 1990s:

The 1990s had a multitude of great players. Many that should have arguably been on this list (Grant Hill, Karl Malone, John Stockton, Gary Payton, Charles Barkley, Clyde Drexler, Patrick Ewing, Reggie Miller, Penny Hardaway, Tim Hardaway etc.), but all things considered, these are the Top 5 NBA Players of the 1990s. Wouldn't you agree?
