No, the Golden State Warriors are not a better team than the Jordan-era Bulls. In his prime, Michael Jordan was such a basketball powerhouse that finding a comparable present-day player or team is nearly impossible. While the Warriors' 2015 record is impressive, in 1996 the Bulls had the most successful NBA season ever thanks to Jordan's domination of the game.
Now let's be clear, the Warriors had a great showing in the NBA finals and they are dominating the other teams right now but no one had the exceptional talent that Michael Jordan did in his day. They say one man does not make a team but Michael Jordan was the exception. I have watched him play with the flu, having to dig deep within himself to do things no human should be able to and ultimately winning the game. His competitive need to win was contagious to the players around him and they all raised up their game. When you watched a Jordan era Bulls game you couldn't help standing up in your living room or wherever you were at the time and cheer like a maniac. The Warriors have not reached that level yet and I'm not sure they ever will.
No, the Warriors are not a better team than the Jordan-era Bulls. While the Warriors are highly successful, they do not have the skills and stamina the Bulls had. Jordan himself was a key to the Bulls' success and while the Warriors have high-performing players, they do not compare to the career of Jordan.
It's been said that the Warriors are a better team than the highly-lauded Chicago Bulls when Michael Jordan was in his prime. While the Warriors have been making an exceptional showing, it is impossible to top the performance of the Bulls in this era. We're talking Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen here. Come on.
