The debate on whether LeBron James or Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time has been raging on for years. What if we broadened the argument, though? Which era of basketball is better? Could today’s teams beat the teams of old? In 1996, Michael Jordan was at his peak, and he was complemented by NBA All-Stars Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman and Three-Point Contest champion Steve Kerr. They'd just completed the first part of their second three-peat championship run. They're considered the best team to ever do it. But there’s been a lot of change in the NBA since then. Players are bigger, faster, stronger, and more skilled than ever before. And when you look at the numbers, the games might be a lot closer than you think.
