ESPN talked to Vegas bookmakers and asked them to set the odds in a game and series between current Golden State Warriors and 1996 Chicago Bulls. Five of them has Warriors favored according to reports. Some NBA fans are outraged with the comparison.
Rules and styles is the biggest factor according to COO at CG Analytics:
“The biggest factor is what rules is [the] game being played under. Being able to hand check would make the Bulls [the] favorite and their roster was built for that. In the no-handcheck era, the Warriors’ current roster is much better suited and would have some serious speed and shooter advantages at several key positions.” – Matthew Holt
