Bulls would dominate this Heat team

Bulls went up against better teams and won during there era

Pippen would contain Lebron , MJ would abuse Wade and Rodman would literally make Bosh cry

Not to mention Kerr/Kukoc and rest of gang is better then the depth of Heat

Bulls in 4

The 1996 Jazz could beat this Heat team.

Phil Jackson would coach circles around Spoelstra. I don't think the Heat would stand a chance. Bulls in 6.

The Heat can't handle the physicality of the Pacers. How could they can handle the Bulls?

The Bulls would of humiliated the Heat and Jordan would have personally embarrassed LeBron on national TV every time he wanted to.

And I agree Pippen would have controlled LeBron like a remote control car. He was light years beyond anything defensively in this day and age. Rodman would have been in his head the first time he came into the lane and stayed there the rest of the short series. No contest at all and kind of a knock on the Bulls for trying to place them on their level if you ask me.

I gave the Heat a pity win. They should be comparing themselves to this years Hawks team instead of the best team in the history of the NBA.

How did all those rings get there? I grew up watching those Bulls, there's no way any team since that team would have beaten them in a 7 game series. Showtime Lakers may have had a chance, that's all I can think of.

Bulls in 5. The Heat would get hot and steal one game with some insane three point shooting but that's it.

A blind monkey could've coached those teams to championships.

For once I agree with you.

Except, Bulls in 4.

Did you actually watch those teams play live? The Lakers had a coach who was better than a blind monkey and couldn't do jack to help the team before Phil got there. And look what happened to the Lakers when Phil left this most recent time. Everyone but Kobe on those recent two title winning teams has fallen apart. And the only important Bulls players who won a title after their dynasty were the one who followed him to LA and Steve Kerr, who was unimportant to those Spurs teams.

It takes a special kind of coach to manage guys like Rodman, Shaq, Jordan, Pippen, and Kobe and actually get them to win without tearing down the locker room around them. Those are five extremely surly personalities. The Heat are different in that such a coaching requirement is not necessary.

Chicago takes it in 5.
I miss teams actually being allowed to play defense

This. It's disheartening to see how the league has changed in some ways, although I do enjoy the increased usage of small-ball, because watching solid PGs (and electrifying backcourts in general) is a blast.

Yeah but the guy before him was a good coach, although a pushover.

Yea, doing it every once in a while against a team who's vastly inferior to the Bulls isn't going to prove anything.

Heat are the best team in the nba this year, but that 96 Bulls team would handle them rather easily.

96 Utah vs 2013 Miami would be a fun series to watch.

Bulls of 96, or this year? Because Indiana is better than Chicago w/o Rose.

Only if Jordan decided to play Minor League Baseball for the rest of his career would the Heat have any chance.

That's why they won the title to prove themselves instead?

Fact is you said the Heat can't handle the Pacers physicality and fact is the Heat proved you incorrect on that one.
