The “new media” has something to say.
Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green, who recently won his fourth NBA championship while also being the star of a very successful podcast, hopped on Twitter on Sunday to join in on the debate era.
Green was watching a game from the 1998 NBA Finals between Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls and the Utah Jazz when he proclaimed that the 2017 Warriors would have taken down both teams if their style of play remained the same.

“I’m watching the ’98 Bulls vs Utah in the Finals… I can’t help but notice our 2017 team would’ve beaten these Bulls by a dub and these Jazz by 40 if they’re going to play these brands of basketball,” Green posted to Twitter. “And that’s why it’s dumb to compare Era’s (sic).”
Debates between eras have been going on for decades, especially as the sports media has turned to debate shows as one of the main sources of entertainment.

The 1998 Bulls were the sixth and final championship team of the Jordan era, with Jordan retiring for the second time after the season. The 1998 Bulls finished the regular season 62-20, defeating the New Jersey Nets, Charlotte Hornets and Indiana Pacers in order to reach their third consecutive NBA Finals.
The 2017 Warriors were arguably the most lethal offensive unit ever assembled, with Kevin Durant joining Golden State in the offseason. Golden State went 67-15 in Durant’s first season in the Bay Area, defeating the Portland Trail Blazers, Utah Jazz and San Antonio Spurs on their way to the finals.
