There actually is a conversation now, if the Warriors had one Game 7 they would have been the best without controversy.

The 2015-2016 Thunder, Spurs, and Cavaliers were all better teams than Jordan faced in 1995-1996. By Nate Silver's ELO measures, the power ranking of the Thunder-Warriors was the strongest conference final in 30 years.

Jordan had a stacked team and crushed non-stacked teams. The Warriors had a stacked team that crushed also-stacked teams, and was heavily weakened by the postseason.

Here's the chart:
