Default How far would the Warriors get if they had to play honest ball against the 1995-96 Bulls?

or the 86 Celtics or 87 Lakers, for that matter.

This Warriors team isn't that good. Neither was last years. They basically only got to the finals because Paul got injured. You should keep this to the 2017 Warriors team. Either way, the 86 celtics are the greatest team of all time...not the 96 bulls.

Curry/Klay can barely dunk

They would get destroyed without the 3-point line to give them an extra point on shots.. Durant made them a legit championship team (they only won in 15' because kyrie was hurt..... and love)

If Curry/Klay walked by a playground where Kareem, Moses, MJ, King and Penny were playing "21" with no threes, they'd just keep walking - they wouldn't belong or be able to compete

Neither could dumars/isiah, they beat MJ three times straight.

"they" beat MJ

MJ was going 1 on 5

Of course, Isiah was an elite athlete and far superior to curry/klay

Agree with this post in a sense that RS record doesn't determine the "greatest team". The greatest teams faced other great teams/players in the Playoffs and won. 2015 & 2017 Warriors didn't really face anyone good in the Playoffs to even call them the greatest team. They ran through an injured Western Conference and played a much weaker team in the Finals.

I'm quite confident the Bulls would win, particularly given the rules by which they played. Not to mention, who's beating a defense with armspans of 6-11 Jordan, 7-0 Harper, 7-3 Pippen, plus Rodman.

well if they're playing on a truly fair level(like a mind wipe situations where they know none of the modern analytics), they're in trouble but still maybe the 2nd best team in 96 and 86. the 2017 team I'm not as sure however even if I lean no. That team was really good. Pretty much everyone but KD was better on that team and they had a few more useful bench pieces

this warriors team is having massive issues with a houston team that don't even really play "basketball"

they just fish for fouls

they've never really looked unbeatable, it's just that the competition is so bad that it is what it is

westbrick and durant should have beaten them a few years ago

... that's a completely different team from this core however. Also why are we acting like durant/westbrook wasnt an elite duo back then lol. Fishing for fouls is cheap but super effective(no play is more efficient than getting fouled on a 3pt attempt)

2017 GSW faced a better team than '86 Celtics, '96 Bulls or '01 Lakers ever did, thats for sure.

Not only that, DJ & Ainge didn't dunk at all for the Celtics, yet they swept MJ twice.

3 ball using the "they can't dunk" argument just shows how dumb he is.
