The Golden State Warriors celebrated their seventh NBA Finals championship last month. Draymond Green, Warriors Power Forward, sent an audacious tweet yesterday about conquering a legendary team. Draymond believes the 2017 Warriors can defeat the 1998 Chicago Bulls.
Draymond tweeted that he was watching the 1998 Bulls vs Jazz finals game. He said that the 2017 Warriors would beat the Bulls by a dub and the Jazz by 40. Could this suggest arrogance from the Power Forward? Maybe, but his comments are quite audacious.
“I’m watching the 98 Bulls vs Utah in the Finals…” Green said in a tweet on Sunday night. “I can’t help but notice our 2017 team would’ve beaten these Bulls by a dub and these Jazz by 40 if they’re going to play these brands of basketball. And that’s why it’s dumb to compare Era’s.”
Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Kevin Durant were all on the Warriors’ 2017 roster. On a nightly basis, the trio scored more than 22 points and attempted more than 50 shots a game. They lost only one game during that’s season’s playoffs. Then, in the Finals, they defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 4-1. They won back-to-back championships in 2017 and 2018.
Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman, and Phil Jackson were the members of the 1998 Bulls. A strong team that won several championships during the 1990s decade. Fans dream about the two teams meeting, but it will remain a fantasy rather than a reality.
Draymond Green is only 32 years old and has grown into a legit NBA player. Green is a four-time All-Star, the 2017 Defensive Player of the Year, and a four time NBA Champion. And, while his remarks are audacious, they are significant given that he and the current Golden State Warriors roster have rebuilt the team.
