Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green took to Twitter Sunday night while watching the 1998 NBA Finals between the Chicago Bulls and Utah Jazz, coming to the conclusion that the 2017 Warriors squad “would’ve beaten these Bulls by a dub.”

The 1998 Bulls squad won 62 games en route to lifting the Larry O’Brien trophy, while the ’96 squad won a then-record 72 games before going on to win the championship. Either version…the Warriors come out on top.

Green’s 2016 Warriors would go on to break that record, winning 73 games, however, they went down to the Cleveland Cavaliers in seven games in the Finals.

Green, therefore, put the 2017 Warriors squad, which featured the addition of Kevin Durant, at the top of the pile.

As Green continued his observations, the four-time champion waxed poetically about the non-stop comparisons of different NBA eras, calling on fans to “stop the unnecessary debating” and “learn to appreciate things for what they are.”

The debates surrounding which team, from what era would come out on top in NBA history have filled column inches, TV air space and Twitter arguments for what seems like an eternity, with no real way to compare eras, given the vastly different styles of play, rules and players involved.

Alas, it’s the summer.

Let the debates begin once again.
