Best NBA team of all-time?

I wish we could redo that All time NBA draft or whatever, except with a way shorter season and 2/3 game series for playoffs. I know thats kind of off topic, but just a random thought I had.

Anyway, my vote goes to the 72-10 bulls.
96 Bulls could not be stopped

If this Heat team gets this series in 5, would you guys consider them one of the all time teams?

1. 1st year of revamped roster
2. Beat some very tough defensive teams and talented teams in 5 games (Boston/CHI)
3. Would beat Dallas in 5, a team that nearly dominated the West in the playoffs and appeared unbeatable. Has held them to under 90 per game.

I really don't see an all-time great team this Heat team would struggle against. Their offense isn't the greatest, but they an really lock teams down. The Wade/James vs. Jordan/Pippen matchup would be insane.

The Kobe/Shaq matchup would probably be the most difficult but they have surprisingly done well against solid rebounding teams.

No

'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

Yeah f**king right. Not even close to being worth a s**t. It's an insult to these teams mentioned above

Lol, tell us how you really feel. They weren't THAT bad...best team ever? No. But I wouldn't say they're not worth a s**t. They did beat a 62 win team with the MVP w/o HCA in 5 in the ECF and a team whose core had won 37 playoff games over the previous 3 years in 5 the semis. They're still likely one of the top 10 or 15 teams of the past decade.

Usually to be considered the best you have to win it all. They did not, they aren't worth a s**t compared to any of the teams mentioned above

No

Why do you have to go out and bring up old s**t? This was a no after Game 5.

do the warriors qualify for beating a 66 or 67 win team in the playoffs?
