Default What would the 72-10 Bull's record look like playing this year?



Not an original question but still....Perfect storm of a situation before or do they come close?

It would a win or two less or more. They had a few nights where they didn't perform (lost to Damon Stoudamire's Raptors) but were on almost every game and when they were on they were better than anyone. The only team with a combo in the modern era that comes close is Miami, but Wade has been down, James isn't clutch like MJ and Rodman would give Bosh a hard time.

Between 50-55 wins.. Actually there's no competition for them that time and today teams are far better than team in the 90s.. Even the Wizards can easily make the playoff in the 90s.. That's how shitty their competition was..

The 2011 Bulls won 62 games and with significant injuries to key players. The 96 Bulls should win 5 more at a minimum.

Well personally I like the high end of that range a little more (so 64-65), but they were designed to comete with teams of that era. I think if you transplant them into today's league, they'd still be very good and would be strongly favored to win the title, but they'd have some trouble adapting early on.

If we're assuming that that wouldn't be an issue, and basing this just on skillsets/talent level, then I'd probably say 67-68.

Most of ISH were infants

I watched them oftem , so I'll say they would have 7-8 losses and maybe 1 loss in the playoff's

They were a well oiled machine.

I really don't see how they'd have trouble adapting. Actually, they might even be better in this era because they don't have to play their centers as much and could play Kukoc more who was their 4th best player. They could play their 5 best players i.e. Rodman/Kukoc/Pippen/Jordan/Harper lineups more often.

It wouldn't be any different. The majority of teams today are so stupid and undisciplined they would get run out of the building by a high IQ, highly skilled, defensive oriented team like the '96 Bulls.

I think even the '96 Orlando Magic would absolutely MURDER this league today.

A hard time? he would rape Bosh and quite possible embarass Bosh into quitting the game entirely. Bosh would be curled up behind the bench in the fetal position trying to find his " happy place"
