Former NBA forward Dennis Rodman took to Twitter Sunday night to congratulate the Cleveland Cavaliers on their 93–89 win in Game 7 of the NBA Finals, but declared that the 1995–96 Chicago Bulls are still the greatest team ever.
Rodman also mentioned the Golden State Warriors in the tweet, giving them credit for their record-breaking 73-win regular season.
Rodman’s Bulls team, which featured Hall of Famers Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, along with current Warriors coach Steve Kerr, finished the 1995–96 season 72–10, before claiming the NBA title.
Much of the narrative throughout the regular season and playoffs revolved around the discussion of whether or not the Warriors should be considered the greatest team ever if they won the title.
LeBron James and Kyrie Irving led the Cavaliers back from a 3–1 deficit in this year’s Finals to claim the first title in franchise history. Cleveland is the first team to trail by 3–1 in the Finals and come back to win the series.
