No particular order;

1) 1982 Lakers
2) 1986 Celtics
3) 1990 Pistons
4) 1991 Bulls
5) 1995 Rockets
6) 1996 Bulls (Jordan's best)
7) 1999 Spurs
8) 2001 Lakers (honorable mention; 2001 76ers for A.I and Dikembe carrying that team so far)
9) 2004 Pistons (arguably the best defensive championship team in NBA history)
10) 2006 Heat
11) 2007 Spurs
12) 2008 Celtics
13) 2009 Lakers
14) 2012 Heat
15) 2016 Cavaliers
16) 2017 Warriors (though if we were a few decades removed from now I'd probably say 2015/2017 Warriors instead of Cleveland just because the team's arguably just as different as Jordan's jump from 1991 to 1996).

I think the 2017 Warriors win, though the 1996 Bulls would in real life, hard to simulate Jordan's clutch factor.

Predictions:

First Round
(1) 1995 Chicago over 16 Houston
(9) 2012 Miami over 8 2000 Lakers
(5) 1998 San Antonio over 12 1984 Lakers
(4) 2016 Golden State over 13 2007 Boston
(15)1982 Philadelphia over 2 1986 Lakers
(7) 1988 Detroit over 10 2013 San Antonio
(11) 2008 Lakers over 6 1990 Chicago
(3) 1985 Boston over 14 2003 Detroit

Second Round
(1) 1995 Chicago over 9 2012 Miami
(5) 1998 San Antonio over 4 2016 Golden State
(7) 1988 Detroit over 15 1982 Philadelphia
(3) 1985 Boston over (11) 2008 Lakers

Semifinal
(5) 1998 San Antonio over 1 1995 Chicago
(3) 1985 Boston over 7 1988 Detroit

Championship
(5) 1998 San Antonio over 3 1985 Boston

I think the 1998 Spurs have the most complete team overall and will win the tournament.

In following suit from the last reply;

First Round
- (1) 1995 Chicago beats (16) 1994 Houston.
- (9) 2012 Miami beat (8) 2000 Lakers. This is one I'm definitely iffy about, Shaq might dominate and win the series for Los Angeles.
- (12) 1984 Lakers beat (5) 1998 San Antonio.
- (4) 2016 Golden State beats (13) 2007 Boston.
- (2) 1986 Lakers beat (15) 1982 Philadelphia.
- (10) 2013 San Antonio beats (7) 1988 Detroit. Though this is the one I'm most unsure of because if coaches were taken out of it, I think Detroit would win.
- (6) 1990 Chicago beats (11) 2008 Lakers.
- (3) 1985 Boston beats (14) 2003 Detroit. sadly. This is a defensive power house though, who knows.

Second Round
- (1) 1995 Chicago beats (9) 2012 Miami.
- (4) 2016 Golden State beats (12) 1984 Lakers.
- (2) 1986 Lakers beat (10) 2013 San Antonio.
- (6) 1990 Bulls beat (3) 1985 Boston.

Semis
- (4) 2016 Golden State beats (1) 1995 Chicago.
- (6) 1990 Bulls beat (2) 1986 Lakers.

Finals
- Almost a rematch, but I personally think 1995 Chicago > 1990, so again (4) 2016 Golden State beats (6) 1990 Bulls, wins the Finals.

I'm from the Bay, got a lot of confidence in these guys :cool: .
