Completely up to you. I like these teams (you may have already done some of these in a best of 7 series):

Great Matchups

*2001 Lakers
Shaq was a dominant force; Kobe, like KD, can detonate at any given moment; great playoff record

*1987 Lakers
I think this team would be a tough out in a 7-game series; Triangle Offense vs Showtime

*1986 Celtics
Arguably the best team 10 years prior to the '96 Bulls; will this series have the same result as the 1986 and 1987 first round matchups?


Interesting (not Great) Matchups
*2004 Pistons
an updated twist on a classic rivalry; '80s and '90s basketball is often mentioned for its physicality, but in my opinion, defenses of the mid-to-late 2000s are severely overlooked and underrated

*1994 Rockets
Rewrite history for the Bulls (4-peat) or the beginning of back-to-back championships for the Rockets

Thank you. I enjoyed watching the last game of each finals.

Interestingly I can see quite a difference in gameplay versus my sliders. What console are you on and have you shared them before?

These were on HoF on Xbox series x. I don't think I've shared the sliders before.

Funny how Jordan made "the right play" in Top Play #3, 2 and 1. I dislike that saying by the way, but won't get into that.

We've read the opinions of who would guard Curry. I think Harper would do okay--he doesn't have to worry about expending too much energy on defense because he's not relied upon much for scoring (or even starting the offense). However, when he goes to the bench, I don't think Kerr or Brown could offer much resistance (and remember--Harper is hoping to just do okay on Curry); that's when Pippen might get the assignment.

Curry has got to play through the physicality--the Bulls could expose that. Pippen has got to consistently score and not just get assists and/or rebounds--the Warriors could expose that. Longley has got to score in the second half (the Bulls notoriously got their centers involved early but didn't give them the same looks in the 3rd and 4th). Mr. Triple-Single has got to play every game and not get ejected and suspended.

Jordan's will to win on the big stage once he got the taste of a championship is big. But so, too is KD's length and scoring prowess.
