If you go by record alone, the 2015-16 Golden State Warriors are now the best team in NBA history. They finished the regular season at 73-9, one win better than the previous standard bearers, the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls. In the 59-year history of the National Basketball Association, they are the only two teams to win 70 or more games. The Bulls went on to win a championship. The Warriors hope to do the same.

Comparisons have been made between the teams all season long, and no doubt will continue to be made. Old Bulls like Scottie Pippen, Ron Harper, and Horace Grant have scoffed at the thought of the Warriors hanging with the Bulls in a seven-game series—Grant went so far to claim that ANY of the six Bulls championship teams would have swept the Warriors. Steve Kerr, who played for those Bulls and coaches these Warriors, was far more diplomatic than his ex-teammates.

It’s hard to say exactly what would have happened. Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen were one of the best two-way tandems of all-time, and Dennis Rodman was a unique specimen in many, many ways. The Bulls played in a different era, but one imagines they could have adapted to any rules. The Warriors, meanwhile, have redefined basketball. Curry, who will undoubtedly win his second straight MVP, hit 402 threes this season, shattering the previous record by more than 100 makes. Fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson also hit threes at a historic pace, which would have drawn more attention had he not been playing alongside Curry. And undersized center Draymond Green is something of an evolutionary Rodman, a disruptor and facilitator who can actually score. Bulls sweep? Nah.

So how would a seven-game series between the teams play out? Well, maybe a little something like this...
