This, and possibly/probably the '89 and '90 Pistons as well.

The only teams that have a shot at beating them are the '85/'87 Lakers, and the '86 Celtics. No version of the Pistons has any chance. Jordan virtually by himself, with a far worse supporting cast (before Pippen/Grant came into their own) pushed the '89'90 Pistons to 6 and 7 games respectively - and now you're giving MJ 1992/'93 form Pippen/Grant? No contest.

I feel the '83 Sixers would lose to the '96 Bulls because Harper/Jordan/Pippen/Rodman are perhaps the ideal defenders for Cheeks/Toney/Dr. J/Moses, whereas the converse isn't true. Their offensive firepower does concern me even given this, however. Same would roughly hold true for the '92 Bulls with BJ/MJ/Pip/Grant defending the four Sixers players.

The 85 and 87 Lakers could beat them. They were more stacked than they were with more scoring options and they were a pretty good defensive team too. Kareem would be the x factor since nobody could stop him. That and you had James Worthy in his prime, Magic Johnson, and Cooper.

The 86 Celtics could stop them just because they have one of the best frontlines ever. And they almost had no weakness.

The 83 76ers could also give them a run for their money. Like most of the championship teams of the 80s, they had little weakness that you could exploit. As well as the Pistons.

The only teams that are capable of beating the Showtime Lakers, 86 Celtics, and 76ers are the 92 Bulls and a healthy 96 Bulls team. 97 Bulls team could do well too, but the 96 team was a year younger and Pippen was more in his primeish and Jordan still had a little more athleticism.
