As the Warriors inch closer to breaking the 95-96 Bulls regular season win record, the majority of the players on the team have been silent about the issue, until now.
Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen evidently doesn't think Golden State would match up well with his record-setting Chicago squad. In a recent interview, he said the 1995-96 Bulls would sweep the Warriors in a hypothetical series between the teams.
"Bulls in four [games]," Pippen said during an interview at an AT&T event in Houston.
Pippen predicted that he would draw the assignment of guarding league MVP Stephen Curry, while Michael Jordan would guard Klay Thompson. "I think that my size and length would bother [Curry] a little bit," said Pippen, who declared that he could limit Curry to fewer than 20 points.
I think the most important part of the question that Pippen didn't speak upon was that the Warriors would also have to guard the Bulls. Who's stopping MJ? Who keeps Rodman off the glass? Who defends Pippen? I think this game is full of mismatches.

Who do you think would win in a playoff series: The 95-96 Bulls or the 2016 Warriors?

WARRIORS. The 95/96 Bulls def has better individual talent but this year's Warriors know how to play together as a team!
Yo these old-timers need to take a chill pill....they just mad because the Warriors are playing a totally different game and they're still dominating!
Bulls all day
Also who's keeping Rodman off the glass if you put Green on Jordan?
@mchylang I'm going to go Bulls with this one also. I think the Bulls will have a better chance adjusting to matchups
