Two Bulls teams voted among NBA's 10 best of all time

4:12 p.m. CDT, June 16, 2011
It's certainly no surprise that the 72-win Chicago Bulls team of 1995-96 has been voted the greatest NBA team of all time in a Sporting News poll. But which other Bulls' championship team also made the top-10 list?

According to a panel of current and former coaches, players, executive and media members, the 1991-92 Bulls team that bested the Portland Trail Blazers in six games in the NBA Finals ranks as the ninth-best team ever. That team, which won the second of the Bulls' six championships, shot an NBA-high 50.8 percent from the floor and was led by Michael Jordan (NBA-best 30.1 points per game) and Scottie Pippen (21 points, 7.7 rebounds, 7 assists per game).

Two other franchises are represented twice in the voting, part of the "Great Sports Debates" series that celebrates the Sporting News' 125th anniversary. The 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers, who won a record 33 straight games, are ranked second and the Magic Johnson-led 1986-87 Lakers are third. The Philadelphia 76ers claimed both the No. 6 (1966-67) and the No. 7 (1982-83) spots.
