Perhaps. I'm not terribly comfortable agreeing with you 100% since there's no way to actually pit today's Warriors against 95-96's Bulls.

Since they lost it all this years Golden State team will be forgotten sooner then this years Caroline Panthers team and the 2007 Patriots team that went undefeated in the regualr season.

I don't think any of this is ever getting forgotten. That's just me.

Oh misread xD

The only performance more singularly dominant was probably Jerry West in 69, where his team lost but he was so singularly astounding he got the MVP anyway.  Against Russell's Celtics no less.

Yeah. Also, I forgot about Hakeem back in the early 90's. He pretty much won those finals on his own lol

He totally outplayed Ewing in the 94 finals and he also outplayed Shaq in the 95.



Great win for Lebron and the Cavs.

What a season. 73-9 still breaks 72-10 record regardless in my book.

Nope, the 95-96 Bulls team is miles better and the NBA was a lot better then it is now.  You also had the team with the most losses this season since the 76ers lost 72.  I totally agree with what Pippen said a couple of month ago that Bulls team would sweep this years Warriors team in a seven game series.

Absolutely. Modern NBA is really weak, and I can't figure out what happened.

Steph Curry wouldn't be an MVP in the 90s era. LeBron however I think would have still done quite well back in the day. Maybe not multiple championships level (depending on team), but he has the physical talent to excel even back when it was a whole lot rougher on the court. Heck, I like Steph Curry, his three point shot is a thing of beauty, but he is far from a complete player. He is mediocre or worse on defense :

Of course it would depend on the team.  No player has EVER won a,championship alone.  The 96 Bulls were absurdly stacked not just in general but relative to their time.

But the officiating trends have changed.  However, this is nothing new.  The greatest teams are built for their time. Warriors would struggle in 96.  Bulls would struggle in 65 through 69.  It's the nature of the beast.  Times change.  The warriors are an excellent shooting team built for a league that supports that in the regular season.  But that's the problem:  the play is closer to the 90s in the playoffs.

All I'm saying is don't just dismiss the current teams cause they are tailored to their day.  The Bulls were the same.  And please, don't forget that the Bulls were not at all representative of the league.  They were stacked.

Bulls would struggle in 1965-1969 ... lol .... they'd wreck that league most any modern decent team would. 

The Showtime Lakers were stacked, the 90s Bulls were just beastly defensively but after Jordan/Pippen they were not that deep offensively. They had the best player ever who was also probably the best clutch player ever. That makes all the difference. 

Warriors don't even really have the single season best W-L when factoring in playoffs. 

Infact not only are the 96 Bulls better when factoring in playoffs, so are the 97 Bulls and even the 92 Bulls are quite close. 

There's no regular season trophy, Golden State did not have the best season ever.

The meme make me feel better about losing a bet xD

 

Like I said, 73-9 still greater than 72-10

Like I said, 87-13 (.870 winning percentage) and a championship is greater than 88-18 (.830 winning percentage) and no championship. The Bulls were the greater team, period.



The Warriors may hang a banner to celebrate best regular season record. Just like how other teams had West/Eastern conference champio banners in their arena lol

96-97 Bulls (the year AFTER 72 wins) even have a better win record that 88-18 that the Warriors got, so that's *two* Bulls teams with better overall W-L records. 



My money down the drain :'( Illuminati needed Cavs win because the public was on Warriors.
