The 'Big Three' in Miami have already received praise for potentially being the next team to establish a dynasty, and being the best team in history.
While they may be able to rack up the rings, the Miami Heat would have to compare with the best team the NBA has ever seen: the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls.
The idea of comparing the two seems a little far-fetched considering that the 2010-11 Heat have yet to break a huddle together. But, with the idea that the comprised players are who they were last year, a comparison can be made.
Note that the comparison with the 1995-96 Bulls will only include those season's stats, and not be based on entire careers.
Each position comparison will have comparable splits of each team's starting five's and how their role in the team effects the outcome of a game. Each team's ability, or potential ability to run an offense and defend s a team will also be weighed.
One last thing, we are playing this in the 1990's when you could bang and crash a little more. The NBA today is a joke. If you look at a guy wrong, a foul is called.
This match-up has the potential to either be an epic battle, or a complete blowout.
Here. We. Go.
