It’s time once again to push the rewind button and head back to 1996. Top of the UK Charts for the second consecutive week is Mark Morrison with ‘Return of The Mack’. Over in the states the NBA Playoffs have started. In the Eastern Conference a Michael Jordan led Chicago Bulls have taken a commanding two game lead over the Miami Heat. Shaq’s Orlando Magic and Patrick Ewing’s New York Knicks are also looking strong. Out west San Antonio, Utah and Seattle are looking like the teams to beat. That’s enough basketball – because no doubt we’ll hear plenty about it from Eric Bischoff in the coming weeks – so let’s head to Raw and Nitro for this week’s ‘The Way We Was‘ …
