The '08 Celtics as well as Garnett himself are overrated. One title and Swoosh calls them a dynasty

I watched the 1999 NBA Finals again. Both Houston and Sprewell had a good finals performance, but the Spurs abused their front court.

Spurs would beat the Bulls in 6 or 7 games.

A 21 to 23 yrs. Duncan destroyed Rodman in their regular season match up. Pippen already declined as an offensive player in his last season with the Bulls. Michael would get his numbers against the spurs, but the spurs would win because they have the superior front court. A past his prime Robinson was still way better than Longley.

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.

The competition was a ****ing joke in 98. The 2013-2014 Spurs crush the 98 bulls. That 99 Spurs team is overrated in general though...they were one of the only teams who were getting together and practicing during the lockout...which obviously gave them an advantage over the competition.

The Spurs would have to overcome the same problems as the Utah Jazz.

The Bulls big guards give the small floor generals (Stockton, Avery) major problems.
And they have no good defenders for Jordan. Utah's Russell was ok, but the had noone who could switch. The Spurs have not one. Elie or Elliot cant guard MJ.

.
Let's compare Lebron and MJ's performance vs. Duncan/Popovich:



Lebron missed his walk-off attempt and needed Ray Allen to save him:






Otoh, Jordan MADE his walk-off attempt from the exact same spot in his first meeting against Duncan/Popovich to send the game into overtime:






After hitting the walk-off, MJ dominated overtime, including 2 dunks over Duncan:






In his 2nd meeting against Duncan, MJ dominated Duncan even more thoroughly:










It's obvious that Jordan only ever DOMINATED Duncan and guys like Duncan - they weren't "rivals" like they are for Kobe and Lebron.. 6/6

In addition to the clear-cut proof above, the Spurs matchup horribly with the Bulls.

They have no one to guard MJ or Pippen, whereas Rodman could guard Duncan.
