The Chicago Bulls won six titles in the 1990s, but here are five players you forgot won a ring with Michael Jordan.
In two separate three-peats (1991-93, 1996-98), the Chicago Bulls won six NBA championships in the 1990s. If not for Michael Jordan‘s first, sudden retirement, the Bulls may very well have won eight straight titles.
Each Bulls three-peat had some notable and memorable core members, like Horace Grant, B.J. Armstrong, John Paxson, Bill Cartwright, Dennis Rodman, Ron Harper, Steve Kerr and Toni Kukoc. The only player who was with Jordan for all six championships is not surprising — Scottie Pippen.
Along the way, the Jordan-era Bulls got rings for a lot of players who may not have otherwise won one, and some others whose names we know may have added a ring at the end of their careers as bit players.
Here are five players you surely forgot won a ring with Michael Jordan’s Bulls.
5. Trent Tucker
Trent Tucker spent most of his career with the New York Knicks, the team that drafted him in 1982 out of the University of Minnesota. After being traded to and eventually waived by the Phoenix Suns, and a short run with the San Antonio Spurs at the end of the 1991-92 season, Tucker signed with the Bulls for what would be his final NBA season.
Tucker played 69 regular-season games and 19 playoff contests off the bench as a 33-year-old for Chicago that year, making 39.7 percent of his 3-pointers during the regular season and a robust 12-for-26 from beyond the arc in the 1993 NBA Playoffs.
Tucker was a very good shooter, and he’s still in the top-25 all-time in career 3-point percentage (40.8), but he capped his career off right with a ring in the final season of the first Bulls three-peat.
