Worth the money

"I loved watching these games, all five games of the 1991 NBA Finals between the Lakers and Bulls. Games 2, 4, and 5 have the classic "NBA on NBC intro", something I was not expecting after reading some previous reviews for it. There is pre-game talk before each game, which gives it some flavor of what to expect for each game. The quality is much better than I expected from games recorded 16 years ago.
If anyone purchased the Chicago Bulls: 1990s DVD, one will notice there is 20 + minutes of extra footage on game 5, the clincher. More pre-game and locker room footage. It is not made to fit a 2 hour time frame for NBATV or ESPN Classic. That is a plus to me because the celebrations are entertaining.
I noticed in game 3 that it is not 100% the full broadcast. They chipped 30 seconds, and it's easy to tell. This probably happened a few more times, but if so, it's hard to tell. They did what they could I suppose and it didn't take away too much from the game.
The bonus sixth disc is the Learning To Fly video. This is also on the Chicago Bulls: 1990s DVD, just in case anyone is expecting more. I figured it to be the case when I purchased it.
The box itself is cool. The front is the boring Bulls logo, but the back has the 1991 team on it. Very nice. In the three cases for the 6 discs, each side has game statistics for the particular game. Very similar to the
2005 White Sox World Series DVDs. I'm a stat freak, and it was helpful in following the game.
Like I said, I'll buy any Bulls Finals releases that come out. I'm already waiting for the 1992 NBA Finals to come out, and eventually I hope all of them are released."

"This is when I became a fan of Michael Jordan: The Chicago Bulls first NBA Championship run. Michael is the greatest player to ever play the game, and his first NBA final with the young and hungry Bulls was nothing short of "spectacular". The only reason I give this set 4 stars instead of the full 5: clearly missing is the 1991 Eastern Conference Finals between the Bulls and Detroit Pistons (who knocked the Bulls out of the playoffs for three straight years: in the 1988 Eastern Conference Semi-Finals, and both the 1989 and 1990 Eastern Conference Finals...a true rivalry in every sense). The Detroit Pistons 1988-89 Championship DVD set has all six games of the Eastern Conference Finals with the Chicago Bulls, and the Pistons' four-game sweep of the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA Finals. Regardless, this is a must-have for any Bulls/Jordan fan."

"Game 1: In a hard-fought thriller, Sam Perkins sinks a three-pointer with 14 seconds left to give the Lakers the advantage. - 1
Game 2: Shooting a Finals record 62% from the field, the Bulls go 17-for-20 in the third quarter and come back to win in a blow out. - 2
Game 3: Jordan beats Byron Scott off the dribble and nails a 14-foot jumper to send the game into overtime. Chicago prevails behind strong rebounding and stellar performances from the reserves. - 3
Game 4: Tenacious defense was the key in this Bulls' victory. The Lakers are held to .366 shooting from the field. - 4
Game 5: Paxson takes control and seals the deal with 10 of his 20 points in the last 3:54. Pippen leads all scorers with 32 points and 13 rebounds. Jordan is voted Finals MVP. - 5

Great, but could've used a bit more

"If you're a Bulls fan or just a fan of the NBA, these 5 games featuring Michael and Scottie and Magic and Worthy will entertain you for hours. My only question is Why didnt this set include the 4 game sweep of the pistons? The pistons box set includes the ECF against Chicago. If,and hopefully when, the second Bulls Championship set comes out, it will have the seven games against New York along with the six games against Portland. All in all, its a hell of a collection. Just need to work a bit harder next time fellas. Get on it, and dont disappoint"
