Re: 1998 Chicago Bulls vs. 1999 San Antonio Spurs
If the '99 Knicks sans Ewing could give these Spurs a fight. I fully believe the '98 Bulls could beat them or give them a fight at the very least. That '99 Spurs team isn't mythologically dominant like say the 2001 Lakers, 2008 Celtics or something.
If the '98 team continued into '99 and maybe added some young players to counteract the now advancing ages of MJ, Pip, Rodman and Harper ... they still could've won.
