The question of which team is better between the 2016 Golden State Warriors and the 1996 Chicago Bulls elicited different answers. Draymond Green, naturally, thinks the Warriors are the better team.

It’s a draw for Michael Jordan and the Bulls since 1996 after going a 72-10 regular season record and winning the title.

The 2016 Warriors set a record (73-9) but failed to win the championship.

LeBron James, while disrupting the historic Warriors campaign, set his own record. He led the Cleveland Cavaliers to overturn a 3-1 deficit, the likes of which have never been done in an NBA Finals.

Warriors point guard Stephen Curry boldly said he liked the 2017 Warriors’ chances of defeating the 1996 Bulls. This drew several reactions from the NBA community, including former player Gilbert Arenas .

Green, his teammate, weighed in on the matter and believes the Warriors were the best ever despite failing to win the championship.

On “The Draymond Green Show”, the discussion broke out between Green and Curry. Green said he was on the side of the 2016 Warriors despite their shortcomings. He also said the 2017 team was the best team ever, even though those Warriors (67-15) didn’t have that many wins.

“I honestly think (winning the championship) definitely puts you on the greatest team ever if we were to finish it,” Green said. “To be completely honest with you, I still think we had the best team ever.

“Although we didn’t finish it and win a championship, I still think it was the best team ever until 2017, so I think this team will become the greatest team ever. So I think we still accomplished it, the best team ever, but you know people take numbers and say, ‘Oh, but the Bulls had 72 wins. We were the best team ever. I don’t care what nobody says. I don’t see anyone beating this 2017 team.”

On his Instagram Story, he uploaded the NBA post of his conversation with Curry and captioned it:

Green went further, saying they had the two best teams in league history. For him, it’s not just about numbers.

Although far from one of the best teams in history, the 2021-22 Warriors clinched a playoff spot after a two-year absence. With Kevin Durant leaving in 2019 and Klay Thompson out due to injury, the franchise missed the playoffs for two straight seasons.

However, the organization clawed back the group, the core players who helped them win 73 regular season games. Although Steph Curry is injured, there’s a chance he’ll be back before Game 1 of the first round against the Denver Nuggets on Saturday.

Competition in the West is tough, with the Phoenix Suns and Memphis Grizzlies rising rapidly. However, the Warriors are optimistic about a deep playoff run.
