Former player and NBA champion Ron Harper believes that while the Golden State Warriors are a great team, his 1995-96 Chicago Bulls team was still better.
Harper was a member of three NBA champion teams with the Chicago Bulls from 1996 to 1998. He later won two more titles with the Los Angeles Lakers.
“…records are made to be broke but we would’ve sweep that team for sure!!!!,” Harper said on Twitter.
He added that Golden State has a long way to go to reach the Bulls’ record. The Bulls won went 72-10 at the end of the 1995-96 season, setting an NBA record. No team has passed it since.
“We didn’t think about a record then,” said Harper.
“I wish Golden State Warriors to stay healthy and chase the record,” Harper tweeted. “We’ll see where they’re at at the all star break.”
Harper also said that in today’s NBA, the 1995-96 Bulls would be 78-4 (instead of 72-10), considering the changes the league has undergone.
Former Bulls guard also has a clear answer to who’s a better player – Michael Jordan or Steph Curry, who is being talked about as the best shooter in the league.
“Curry is a great player but that dude MJ maybe a little better, ok the greatest…,” Harper joked.
Harper played for Cleveland Cavs, LA Clippers, Chicago Bulls and LA Lakers. Before he joined the Bulls, Harper never averaged below 15.4 ppg in a season. In his rookie season, he averaged 22.9 ppg for Cleveland.
Harper played a total of 1009 NBA games (starting 967), averaging 13.8 ppg, 4.3 rpg and 3.9 apg in 30.9 mpg.
