The Winner Is

Winner 1995-96 Bulls
4 out of 7

Chicago Bulls - Besides the fact that the PredictionMachine.com gives them the nod, their edge at coach is a big one. Phil Jackson would be able to get the matchups he needs to win at all times and is probably the biggest x-factor here. Not to discount Michael Jordan of course, who would refuse to lose. But man, what we would give to watch him play against Steph Curry in his prime. That would be a blast.
