Healthy Warriors are the best team in NBA history by far, if not the best team in sports history

these are just facts. Durant top 3 all-time

Drexler and Miller weren't on the same team. Iggy and Klay are.

MJ would attack until everyone on GS fouls out under today's rules, let's be honest. Rodman would get Draymond ejected at least 2 times in a 7 game series.

It would work the other way. MJ, Pip, and Rodman would foul out before the 1st half, if they defend the same way.

This is pretty much common knowledge at this point, Warriors as a team are way more talented than the Bulls and they are just as well coached and play team basketball.

Let them play hand check, players are much smarter at drawing fouls nowadays.

Clyde was better than Klay and Iggy. Joe Dumars might be an accurate comparison, tho he lacked in size. He was still a great defender. And Moncrief was better.

But the Warriors is more talented than any of the MJ Bulls team. However, the Bulls have the players that could defend the Warriors straight up. They could switch too. Harper, MJ, Pippen, Rodman were all great defenders, with MJ, Pip, and Rod being in all defensive 1st team. They just do not have the offensive talent though they were the best offensive team in their era.

And it depends on the rules. Pip and MJ may have been better offensively in this era, but worse defensively. While KD, Klay would be better defensively back then but perhaps worse offensively. Who knows.

Current GSW would wreck any of the past champions but not for the reasons you think.

Teams like 80's Lakers & Celtics or 90s Bulls would have no idea how to defend the Warriors but not vice versa. Back then, teams rarely shot the threes, never mind the quantity and accuracy the Warriors produced. It's a brand new type of offense for them and they're supposed to learn it in a few days? Forget about it. It would be easy baskets after easy baskets for the GSW.

And his pathetic 3 points shooting won't work well against the long and athletic warriors.

6'7" Reggie Lewis blocking MJ. 7'0 Durant would murk him.

Lakers worst shooting team in the league, a struggling offense went to OT twice and lost another close one vs. Golden State

what makes you think any of MJ's Bulls couldn't beat them? These current Warriors haven't looked that unbeatable this season. any version of 90's MJ Bulls could definitely guard those guys.

Just look at how '93 Bulls went up against an offensive force that was the Phoenix Suns that would be a top 3 offense in today's league, they had the HCA and had a 113.3 ORTG even despite missing Kevin Johnson for over 30 games that year. Tell me what happened in that series? Jordan would do even more damage than 41 ppg against these Warriors under today's rules. They played at a 89.7 pace in that series, last year's Finals the Warriors and Cavs played at a pace of 100.2, MJ with his motor would outwork anyone on that team.

Firstly, everyone should acknowledge that the Warriors—while they're great and are obviously the contemporarily best team—are not the historically indomitable juggernaut that many accept them to be. They're a GOAT-level regular-season team, certainly; but if you want to hypothesize how they'd fare in the playoffs against other all-time-great teams, you can't gloss over the shortcomings they've shown in that realm.

This Warriors team during their title-contention accession has a history of faltering in the playoffs; and while we didn't see it this past postseason due to a combination of Kevin Durant bolstering them up comfortably and underwhelming opponents (due to a combination of opponents' injuries and the fact that top-seeding naturally roadmaps easier roads to the finals), we saw it in previous years where they were upset by the Cavaliers and given hastier runs for their money than they should have been, overall. They've usually taken care of their business by the end of their series, but we have yet to see them beat an all-time-great team—much less one of a GOAT-level magnitude as Jordan's team—and I can't give them the benefit of the doubt that charitably with all struggles they've had.

That's being said, let's compare them to the best Bulls team under Jordan's playership: the 1996 Bulls, who are demonstrably the winningest team of all time.

Obviously, the Golden Medal Warriors outmatch them on-paper, but it could get interesting postulating that they play under the more physically permissible rulesets that the Bulls did (before handchecking was outlawed). Much of this Warriors teams' struggles came against opponents that played them physically (the 2015 Grizzlies, Cavalers of previous years, and so forth), as they've played much more flaccidly against physicality.

Plus, defensively, that Bulls' team was much better-equipped to defend the Warriors' superstars than any team they've faced this year. They had three All-Defensive First Team members in Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen—neither of whom would back down from the assignments of Curry and Durant—and Dennis Rodman; none of the Warriors' opponents last year had close to that or arguably any elite perimeter-oriented defenders (Kawhi was injured, and LeBron conserved far too much of his injury on defense for the other end of the floor).

I'd still probably ultimately lean towards the Warriors in 6 or 7, but the comparison, overall, feels too moot to me because there are primordial differences between the eras and we don't know how adaptable teams would be to them. Both eras have their own advantages and disadvantages, and it's bilateral: the Warriors might wilt under the physical era of the Bulls, and the modern-day three-point-shooting upswing would be disadvantageous to the Bulls (most '90s players didn't even grow up shooting three-pointers, which wasn't even instituted in the NBA until 1979).

That debate will always feel murky for those reasons; but at the very least, I don't think the Warriors should be given the invincible benefit of the doubt that they have been; they still have more to prove in the postseason, and we'll see if that stage is set for them this year if they have a truly formidable opponent at full strength.

The Warriors would absolutely win more times than not. People overrate past teams.

Jordan's Bulls were all-time great of course but the Warriors are better. Hell imagine if the Warriors played the Bulls when the NBA SHORTENED the 3-point line.

Seriously, game over.
