John Starks, New York Knicks
The New York Knicks were the Bulls’ main Eastern Conference rivals from 1991-1996, so the two clubs knew each other very well. John Starks had his ups and downs against Jordan and the Bulls but he always came to prepared for a fight.
The 1993 Eastern Conference Finals were particularly contentious. Starks finished off the Bulls in Game 2 with his emphatic dunk, but Jordan clapped back in Game 3. Jordan hit Starks with an elbow, and Starks swatted back at Jordan. A shoving match ensued with Starks repeatedly yelling “You wanna go, Mike?” at Jordan.
