Michael Jordan would thrive on the modern NBA, according to the head coach of the Golden State Warriors Steve Kerr.

Kerr also stated Jordan and the Bulls would be a title contender if they played in today’s NBA.

“When I look back at that Bulls team, that team was actually built to play today. Now, minus the volume of three-point shooting, but I think that team was capable of it.

But when you’re talking about the versatility that you need to defend today. If you throw out on to the court, Ron Harper, Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Toni Kukoc, and Dennis Rodman, that’s a 2020 defense. Those five guys can guard anybody.

And offensively, nobody ever could guard Michael Jordan then. You can only imagine now, with the spacing and the rules,” Kerr said during his appearance on the Bill Simmons podcast, via Sourabh Singh of  Essentially Sports.
