Who is the better NBA team between the Nowitzki Mavs, The Chauncey Billups title winning Pistons, and last year's GS Warriors? This Years Warriors are ridiculous and need not apply. It depends on the matchups of course but I'd go with last years warriors. Curry and Thompson were ridiculous. I'm still not sure how they lost.

Last year's Warriors over this year's? They essentially traded Harrison Barnes for Kevin Durant, I'd say that's a significant upgrade...

Yeah, this year's Warriors.

Now, if the game was called like it was 20 years ago, GSW would still not beat the Bulls. Rodman would have KD in a box.

I don't know about that. Thinking back to Rodman's best playoff performances against someone remotely like KD who can shoot, pass, post up, do isolation, pick and roll, etc. I'm not sure there is anything like it on his resume. He is a great defender of course and I think he might create the most problems just denying passing lanes and making KD work overtime to get the ball. It would be a good matchup to watch. He might be able to keep him contained for a game or two but I doubt it would be anything along the lines of keeping him boxed up.

I'm not saying it would be easy, but Rodman would have the speed and length to bother him a bit...and the ability to hand check would allow Rodman to play up on him and not get blown by on the drive. You factor that in and the fact that teams wouldn't be able to play zone outside the paint, then I don't know who guards Jordan. KD could play Pippen, I guess, but man-to-man defense, hand checking and the presence of Michael Jordan makes me put my cash on Chicago.

Hand checking KD would admittedly be huge, but I think he would still have a very good series. As for who would win, I'd also take Chicago. I see it as a close series but the fact that GS crumbled last year makes me give the nod to the Bulls. Whether it was a surge of pure talent and athleticism or a more calculated understanding of strategy and knowing what he was capable of, MJ always found a way to make his team win. Bulls in 7.
