Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green believes that the 2017 edition of his team would beat Michael Jordan’s 1998 Chicago Bulls without breaking much sweat.
When it comes to the Utah Jazz of the same season… Green is certain that it would be a blowout.
“I’m watching the 98 Bulls vs Utah in the Finals… I can’t help but notice our 2017 team would’ve beaten these Bulls by a dub and these Jazz by 40 if they’re going to play these brands of basketball. And that’s why it’s dumb to compare Eras,” Green tweeted.
Green had opened a sequence of tweets regarding the comparison between different NBA eras by writing, “Question… When they be comparing Era’s are they taking into consideration the drastic differences In style of play? Regardless of the answer, it’s very dumb to compare one era to the next era.” He then commented, “Learn to appreciate things for what they are. Analyze the game. And stop the unnecessary debating. Yours Truly, The New Media.”
Both the 1998 Bulls (the ones of “The Last Dance”) and the 2017 Warriors are considered two of the best teams in the history of basketball but the game has changed so much over these decades that no one can claim for certain which squad would win, especially in a series. When it comes to the rosters, on one hand, you had Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman, plus current Warriors coach Steve Kerr and Toni Kukoc coming off the bench. On the other, there’s Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond plus Andre Iguodala
Speaking of KD and Kerr, the former entered the conversation, by retweeting Green and saying, “I can’t tell you what the results would be, but I do know that Steve Kerr would’ve demanded that we put Steve Kerr in as many pick and rolls as possible.”
