Depends on the year the game is played. Rules are so different now. Same for these hypo matchups in football.

100% this. The soy boys in today's game would wilt under the pressure and physical play of the Jordan era. Jordan or Pippen on Curry would have meant the Warriors were done.

The 96 Bulls got the living shite beat out of them night in and night out. They played with a level of physicality the likes of which these bitch asses couldn't handle. frick the 90's knicks, Cavs, Suns would have put steph and company in wheelchairs.

Close your eyes. Now imagine not being able to hand-check Michael Jordan. Just imagine MJ, running around the court, without hand-checks, without defensive players bodying up. This is not even a discussion. The Bulls kill them with either set of rules.

a lot depends on what rules they'd use. it would be a great series. when a team can make that many 3s, they can beat anyone. the bulls had 4 defenders they could throw at step and klay. the bulls could defend the warriors better than the other way around. michael and pippen would post up every play and be impossible to stop.

Did Jay William me know that 96 Bulls team had 3 players on the 1st all-defensive team? And that’s with the greatest coach of all time.
