    Default Better team? 1982-83 Sixers or any team jordon ever beat in a series?

    Is the worst team of the 4 teams that won a championship in the 1980s better than any team jordon beat in the 90s? Unquestionably.
    There is no way that Malone-Stockton/Kemp-Payton/whoever else you consider the best team jordon beat are beating Moses-Dr. J.
    Yet another example of how watered down jordon's "competition" in the 90s really was.

    Let's talk about dudes who are in the playoffs right now. LeBron and Jordan are both who are looking in. Let's see who makes it next year..

    1993-94 Ron Harper on the L.A. Clippers: 20.1 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 4.6 apg & 1.9 spg
    1995-98 Ron Harper on the Bulls: 7.5 ppg, 2.8 rpg, 2.5 apg, 1.3 spg

    1995-96 Brian Williams/Bison Dele on the L.A. Clippers: 15.8 ppg on .543, 7.3 rpg
    1996-97 Brian Williams/Bison Dele on the Bulls: One of the most active warmers of the Bulls bench
    1997-98 Brian Williams/Bison Dele on the Pistons: 16.2 ppg on .611, 8.9 rpg

    These were the players the 90s Bulls casually picked up to be role players off the bench.

    Scottie Pippen outscored 5 of 6 Finals #2 options so either the 90s was weak as fu** or Pippen was significantly better talent than any other 90s #2 option.

    Once you concede this point I'm going to slap you around about defense, playmaking, and rebounding next. Open wide sweetheart.

    And as soon as Pip was gone in 98 he left. As soon as Jordan didn't have a stacked deck he QUIT the sport

    Agree. I think they were rated one of the best 10 teams of all-time some years ago, they had a very good backourt in Mo Cheeks and Andrew Toney "The Boston Strangler", Dr. J at forward and Bobby Jones and three-time MVP Moses Malone in the frontcourt. Actually, I think Moses is quite underrated all-time, I mean, he won three Regular Season MVPs and he is barely mentioned with the all-time greatest centers.

    Yeah. That was a pretty uniformed statement. The 1983 Sixers is probably one of the top 5 teams ever, and the only two 80's teams that could see being possibly better than them are the 1986 Celtics and maybe the 1987 Lakers. Even then, I'm not certain.
