Default The GREATEST TEAM OF ALL TIME

I want to make this clear Im a Laker fan but if any basketball fan looks at it its easy to see the 1987 Lakers are the all time best team ever.


Bulls fans
try again.

Lets say MJ goes crazy and gets 40 a game.
Magic matches that with his 24 and 12 assist thats 48 a game.

Pippin is a great Robin to Batman but Worthy was better.

Kerr was a great role player but Scott was a legit 3 scoring option.

Rodman was hell on the boards but AC Green would have gave him fits

Ron Harper was solid but Michael Cooper was just as effective and much more athletic

a mix of Rambis and Mychel Thompson would have closed up the lane for Jordan and Pippin and opend up the break for Magic .

Did I forget Jabbar as the X factor .

ENd result lakers in 6 games.

I hate lakers fans theyre so delusional and insecure about their team its unbelievable...like a girl that needs to be told shes beautiful everyday to not feel ugly...that Lakers team WAS NOT better than the Bulls team the 86 Celtics were better than those Lakers too...and the Lakers with pretty much the same team (I THINK Cooper was the only sig difference) were beaten by the Rockets in 86...so NO that team was not better than the Bulls team and they werent better than that classic Celtics team either.

I couldn't agree more .....





with that said I believe that you can make a legit case for all the teams mentioned in this post... My personal opinion though is either the 92 Bulls or 96 Bulls......

Every time there is an ESPN poll about the Greatest Team Of All Time, the 87 Lakers almost always win it. There is no reason to stick your tongue out at the Bulls fans though.

Whats classic about a team that came back the next year and got ran. Oh yea they were hurt ?????????????/ Excuse The Bulls stop talking and go player to player and tell me how the Bulls would have won. By the way Magic lakers 5 rings Birds classic Celtics 3 rings 2 against the Rockets when Magic was hurt.

I think the '87 Lakers have as good a case as anyone in the "greatest team ever" debate, but this statement perfectly encapsulates the way many Laker fans act. It's just so childish.

Unsurprisingly, Laker fans are almost always Bulls/Jordan haters, which is why he feels compelled to say "Bulls fans, try again" etc. without anyone making any statements about the Bulls.

And news flash OP: When Jordan was getting 40, he was usually getting 5-9 assists, too. So that changes your calculus a bit.

Your right but it bothers me when a person says for instance the Bulls are the best or the 86 Celtics are the best. All you have to look at is a man to man match up and its clear neither the Bulls or 86 Celtics can match up with the 87 lakers . The lakers were too strong inside for the Bulls and too athletic for the 86 Celtics.

I think we can all count the time Jordan had 9 assist and 40 points in a game on our right hand. The Big thing about Bulls fans they hate that they never had another great team to face that they beat in there prime. Its like the lakers are Ali and the Bulls are larry Holmes.

I said 40+ points and between 5-9 assists, and Jordan had 116 such games in his career. 40 points + 7 ast = 54 points accounted for, not 40 like you said. Try again.

And he had 40+ pts/9+ ast in 24 games (including 12 games of 40+/10+). So unless you're a polydactyl, I think you're out of luck on counting them on your right hand.

The big thing about Bulls haters is that they don't understand that there were many great teams during the 90's, it's just that Chicago beat them (and beat them consistently), hence they never became known as "great teams."
