Chris Mullin was asked to pick between the 1996 Chicago Bulls and 2017 Golden State Warriors. The Bulls finished the 1995-1996 regular season with 72 wins and 10 losses and eventually went on to win the championship. Meanwhile, the Warriors entered the 2018 playoffs with a 67-15 record. They claimed the NBA title by beating the Cavaliers 4-1 in the Finals.

The Dubs’ legend chose his former team over Michael Jordan’s Bulls. “I go with the Warriors on that one just because of the offensive firepower,” Mullin told NBC Sports NBA Insider Tom Haberstroh on “The Habershow” podcast, via Drew Shiller of Yahoo! Sports.

He further explained how the Bulls would try and be able to some extent to limit Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, but they would not be able to take care of Kevin Durant, who according to him, is the the top offensive player.

“They’d put Scottie on Steph — Phil Jackson’s philosophy was cut the head of the snake off, so that would be a long series for Steph. Michael and (Ron) Harper could hound Klay. Now, hounding and stopping are two different things. But with (Kevin) Durant — you’re talking about arguably the top offensive player when it’s all said and done. He’s gonna be up there all time,” Mullin explained.
