    MJ/Pip/Rodman defending those guys.

    Come on, man!!

    But it would be a good series.
    regularly getting fed by chuck, penny and others for 40+, im sure KD and Steph would do just fine

    Lebron's super team in Miami noticeably absent
    probably because it wasnt a true superteam on par with magics lakers, birds celtics, jordans bulls and steph/kds warriors

    those teams all had 3 stars and a bunch of quality balanced depth

    miami had 3 stars and mike miller/ray allen

    Jordan’s bulls, especially the first threepeat was not a superteam. It was Jordan and pippen.

    The Lebron heat were clearly a superteam. The fact that Ray Allen is a fourth wheel tells you how great a collection of talent they had. Players like Shane battier and Haslem are quality role players.

    Ray Allen was not that far removed from all-star Ray Allen (if at all removed).

    And Mike Miller was a stat stuffer in Memphis. I at Tom Rivers or whoever it was calling him out on playing possom with all that lurching over like his back was bad.

    All the same, I would agree Miami was not as deep as other teams.

    But would that matter if Bosh, LBJ, Wade were considered more dominant / clutch in their own right?

    They were considering the 90s nba was diluted and other teams had so many scrubs

    I would agree that they were clearly the most stacked during the era but I thought we are comparing cross era.

    It’s most likely the most stacked teams winning it all. Not often you can have four HoFers with a couple of them in their primes not winning a ring.

    why does everyone forget Harper? The guy was a very good defensive player, especially with Chicago. IMO, if that Bulls team had David Robinson, they go 82-0, instead of 72-10.....The defense would have been the best in the history of the NBA.

    Healthy 87 Celtics and 87 Pistons were both better than 87 Lakers, tbh.
    I agree with you bro, healthy 87 Celtics was pretty insane....

    tbh as hateable as they are, the 17 warriors have to be on that list. a legit argument as the goat team
    Ya, did not know why no one simply mention the 17' Warriors team, dude has two GOAT-tier candidates KD and Steph...
    Simply invincible...

    Pick one Lakers squad since one franchise shouldn't be represented twice.

    88 Pistons were robbed we all know this... would've gone back-to-back against prime magic and bird and three-peated, all while fending off Peaking Jordan.

    That should put them ahead of 2014 Spurs only because they won one championship against a fairly washed up Heats team.
    2014 Spurs are not better than 1999 Spurs, which was 15-2 in the playoffs and 74% in the season...
    Just 1 tier behind 01 Lakers

    Bulls had scrubs like Simpkins, Buechler and Randy Brown. Not sure I would call that quality depth

    Still a super team, just like Miami was a super team by virtue of being so top heavy.

    You are correct. Shame on me for forgetting Harp.

    Damn that Bulls team was long and mean. Bulls over 2017 Warriors in 5.

    Kukoc the best 6th man and also the best international player at the time, could play multiple positions and hit big shots

    Battier and Haslem were no bums.

    Heat had some players. Bulls depth was only marginally better, imo.

    Ray Allen was not that far removed from all-star Ray Allen (if at all removed).

    And Mike Miller was a stat stuffer in Memphis. I at Tom Rivers or whoever it was calling him out on playing possom with all that lurching over like his back was bad.

    Buechler was a decent rotation role player for their needs tbh
    Obviously he was limited but he did what he had to do , a couple of 3s, some rebounding and energy off the bench

    he was 37+, barely averaged 10 a game, and played trash defense. he was very far removed from all-star Ray Allen

    And Mike Miller was a stat stuffer in Memphis. I at Tom Rivers or whoever it was calling him out on playing possom with all that lurching over like his back was bad.
    yes my point. they had known names but not quality depth. Miller and Battier were decent players at best in their careers, but were mostly 1 trick ponies on offense (hitting spot up 3s)

    All the same, I would agree Miami was not as deep as other teams.

    But would that matter if Bosh, LBJ, Wade were considered more dominant / clutch in their own right?
    winning 14 our of 16 playoff series and back to back championships in a 4 year span is among the most dominant stretches in modern NBA history, id they they accomplished quite a bit, and potentially could have won more had they stayed together.

    lol yes they were scrubs who mainly played scrub minutes in blowout games. they were never relied on in any kind of meaningful situations, compared to mario chalmers who while he had a clutch gene, negated it with a re ation gene by doing 3 stupid things for every clutch thing he did. or how about relying on joel anthony or birdman as starters? not comparable

    Rodman would make Green his prison . Pippen would be glued to Klay. Jordan glued to Iggy. Harper glued to Steph. If the play by 90s rules, Bulls sweep. If they play by today's sissy ass rules, Bulls in 6, as they would need a few games to adjust to the ness of the league. BTW, offensively, Jordan would be unstoppable if you can't touch him anymore.....he would be going off for 50 or 60 a game in the series, living at the FT line.

    off the bench....Kerr, Kukoc, and Salley are not a bad trio. Their 3 headed C of Edwards (2 time champion), Longley, and Wennington are more than adequate against whatever C the Warriors had.

    When the Warriors added Durant....Rodman on Green, Pippen on Durant, Jordan on Klay, Harper on Curry.

    i personally think the warriors simply have too much scoring punch for the bulls to keep up

    the bulls would have to get a lot of offensive rebounds and turnovers to win 4 games in that series

    both teams are built away from the post, and the warriors are simply better built at that style of game. i believe the only way to beat such a team is to have a guy like shaq, timmy or kareem and outlaw zone defense.

    Spurs choked up that one legit le LeBron got. The other was another shortened season handout. The Heatles were a bust.

    Somebody told me that Magic was not top 5 players all time as when he did not have GOAT-er like Jabbar, he just lost ing twice in Finals.

    What do you guys think? Just curious, man
