It's really difficult to compare teams in different eras in basketball because the rules changed so much. For example, the Warriors would be almost completely helpless stopping the Bulls if they played in 90s rules- without being able to play zone, Curry is a massive defensive liability that the Warriors can't handle, and with hand checking and much more physical play allowed the Warriors might actually be ground into dust. Fitting the Bulls into today's NBA is a bit harder to picture, as it's not like they couldn't play zone if they'd practiced, but the level of physicality would need to come down immensely. Playing by 90s rules the Bulls would crush the Warriors- by today's rules you'd have a really interesting series.

Also I'm so disappointed in KD's decision- even if it did end up benefiting the Mavs a bit.
