Best NBA team of all-time?

Is it the:
'95-'96 Chicago Bulls
'85-'86 Boston Celtics
That Laker team (I forgot which one) that won 30+ in a row or something
'86-'87 Los Angeles Lakers
Today's Miami Heat
One of the '60's Celtics teams
Or somebody else

I can't decide.

It's either the 86 celtics, 87 lakers, or the 96 bulls

the 1999 and 2003 Spurs were better than today's Heat.
Da Bulls.

The Heat would get eaten alive by that Bulls squad. Wade and LBJ vs. Pippen and Jordan would play to a virtual stalemate. The rest of the Bulls >>>>> than the rest of the Heat.

I think Wade/Bron would get outplayed by MJ/Pippen. MJ would devour whoever tried to guard him and both MJ/Pippen have enough size, athleticism, and length to guard either Wade or LeBron effectively.
8 teams in 30 years.


f**k NBA.


Contract teams. Make it actually competitive.
It's crazy to think that the '86 Celtics are (rightfully) considered one of the best teams ever, and due to Auerbach's magic, they had the #2 pick in the draft that year. They took Len Bias, who I think would have been a HOF player if he didn't OD. Dude was a beast.

He woulda been coming into his prime right as Bird/McHale/Parish were starting to show signs of age. It might have extended Bird & McHale's careers a bit, and would have set up some EPIC Bulls vs. Celtics matchups in the early 90's.

Damn shame.

I didn't witness the 1971-1972 Lakers, but there are no words for that 33 game run they went on. Unbelievable. The lineup reads like a who's who, but I can only speak on what I saw. What the 1995-1996 Bulls did was amazing, but I think the 1986-1987 Los Angeles Lakers faced tougher competition so I give the nod to them.


The Heat are my team, but they do not deserve to be a part of this discussion.
