So there’s no way the Hall of Famer would choose the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls to beat the 2016-17 Warriors in a seven-game series, right? That is right. “I go with the Warriors on that one just because of the offensive firepower,” Mullin told NBC Sports NBA Insider Tom Haberstroh on “The Habershow” podcast. Would he still pick the Warriors if he was face-to-face with Michael Jordan and had to answer the question? “I would. I would,” Mullin declared. “It’s really not about Michael and Scottie (Pippen). Those guys will handle their business. And they’d probably be able to really — I don’t know about shut down — but really make it tough for Steph (Curry) and Klay (Thompson). They’d put Scottie on Steph — Phil Jackson’s philosophy was cut the head of the snake off, so that would be a long series for Steph. “Michael and (Ron) Harper could hound Klay. Now, hounding and stopping are two different things. But with (Kevin) Durant — you’re talking about arguably the top offensive player when it’s all said and done. He’s gonna be up there all time.”

Raptors feel they can put together the best trade package for Kevin Durant

On top of ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reporting Friday that the Raptors are ‘lurking’ in the background of the Kevin Durant trade discussions that have held the NBA hostage in recent days, I can confirm that not only are the Raptors ‘lurking,’ but they also feel they can put together the best package of assets the Brooklyn Nets are likely to get.
Nate Randle: An open letter to Rudy Gobert: You are the most respectful and considerate athlete I have ever had the pleasure of working with. As a former Utah Jazz employee and fan, you will be missed. I have spent 15+ years of my career in sports and have seen it all. Most don’t carry themselves as you do. When we launched the #TakeNote campaign, you were the first player to adopt it. When I said thanks for tweeting it, you sincerely asked me to tell the entire marketing team how much you loved it.
