    Who's covering Jordan? Pippen? Who keeps Rodman off the boards?

    Conversely, can Harper keep Steph in check? Is it necessary to shut down Steph to beat them? Is Kukoc enough to handle Draymond?

    Bulls in six.

    I'd say Bulls 4-2. It'd probably go like this: GS, Bulls, Bulls, Bulls, GS, Bulls

    What set of rules? 95-96 hand check heavy, or current 15-16?

    95--96 Bulls would be a tough matchup in that case. Jordan was soooooo good on the block w/ his turn around jumper and his post moves that Klay Thompson would have been sitting a lot of the series. Ron Harper would have had similar issues, but I would say that Harper, at least offensively, wasn't near as important as Thompson is.

    I feel like Jordan would have guarded Curry and Pippen on Klay. Not sure who Harper would have guarded in that scenario but I definitely think Jordan would have wanted to check Curry.

    Let's not forget the Bulls could go small and play Rodman at the 5 when the Warriors put Draymond at the 5.

    The ability of the Warriors to shoot the 3 ball is what would make me give them the edge. Those games sure would have been fun to watch.

    This Warriors team is amazing but I have yet to see a team better than the Bulls from 96-98.

    Current rules, I give the edge to the Warriors simply because the 72-10 Bull squad was very physical in their style of play. They would foul out in today's game, every game.

    The best team and best player in history would probably be able to adjust to current rules.
    Bulls in 5

    At this point I would have to go with the Bulls. That team had way more playoff experience, having some players with 5 championships already. They only lost 3 games total the entire playoffs.
