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

They'd destroy the Celtics. Awful matchup for the Celtics.
I'd have to think about the Lakers. First thought is Warriors win. Shaq/Kobe Lakers have a better shot either way.
Bulls series hinges on level of physical play allowed on the perimeter. It can swing pretty hard in both directions.

ah yes, HTF they'd sweep the Magic. If you know of other lineups with that kind of height, I'd love to hear.

The Celtics are taller, have 7 guys averaging double figures, one of the best passing teams, and the Lakers could run on them. The Bulls, who were the league's best team on both offense and defense, would actually beat them.

I still think the Celtics get worked. That was my team growing up. I actually watched them. The Warriors is their worst nightmare. Bulls won't do shit if they call a foul each time they try to get physical. But it's up to your interpretation of "honest ball".

Very funny, Fkari. Would love to see them stymied by the Bulls' physical perimeter defense.

Those who followed Grant's career seem to agree that he peaked in 94-95.

It all depends on what rules they are playing under.

The Celtics of 86’, Lakers of 87’, Bulls of 96’, etc....played under the rules of their time, if you match them up against the Warriors of today and have the rules like today, they lose. If you make the rules like it was back in the 86, 87, 96 or whatever, they’d win.

In addition to differences in how much physical play is allowed and how much you can touch a perimeter player...the teams are used to seeing a certain style of opponent, their gameplans are devised on how the game is played in their time.

Yes, he did. Could he have been enough to give the Magic one win in the series? I doubt it, but we'll never know. I'll point out that the Bulls were utterly destroying the Magic in game 1 when Grant got hurt late in the second half. His play didn't seem to bother the Bulls at all.

I like Grant, always have. He's more than a role player but not really an All Star either. More like a major glue guy when he was playing his best. Great for the Bulls first championship run.
