Steph Curry believes the Kevin Durant-led Warriors would beat '96 Bulls


(Audacy) When it comes to the greatest teams of all time, the 1996 Chicago Bulls are often given that title within the NBA -- but Warriors star Steph Curry says not so fast.

Curry would take one of the Kevin Durant-led Warriors teams over Michael Jordan's Bulls, he recently told GQ.

“Absolutely,” Curry said. “Obviously, we’ll never know. But you put us on paper with them, I like our chances. I say Dubs in six, too.”

Durant played for the Warriors from 2016-'19. The Warriors won championships in the first two of those three seasons, in 2017 and 2018. The Warriors' best season record-wise during the Durant era was their 67-15 mark in 2016-'17.

Before Durant came to Golden State, the 2015-'16 Warriors went 73-9 to set an NBA record for the most wins in a single season, besting the 1995-'96 Bulls' 72-10 record. But that season usually isn't viewed like the ’96 Bulls’ season because the Warriors were unable to finish the job, blowing a 3-1 series lead to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals.

It’s a near-impossible debate to have and find an answer to, because the styles and eras of both teams are so different, but it's quite entertaining to imagine Durant, Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green going up against Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman.

We’ll just have to figure out if Steve Kerr is on the Bulls bench or if he gets to coach the Warriors.
