The Golden State Warriors might be five games away from surpassing the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls' record 72-10 season, but one Hall of Famer from that famous roster isn't convinced the reigning NBA champions would have given his team much of a test.

Speaking to Paul Pabst of the Dan Patrick Show, Scottie Pippen insisted the '95-'96 Chicago team would sweep the current Golden State roster 4-0 in a seven game series.

Moreover, according to ProBasketballTalk, the six-time NBA champion also claimed he'd be able to keep Stephen Curry under 20 points.

Debate around such a hypothetical series has intensified with each passing win the Warriors have accumulated this season. 

Despite their phenomenal campaign - one that has seen numerous personal and team records set - Pippen clearly isn't overawed by what he has seen from the Dubs in 2015-16, at least not when compared to what his 72-10 team achieved.

To suggest the 68-8 Warriors wouldn't win a single game in a seven-game series, though, is a bold call indeed.

Then again, considering that Bulls team consisted of the likes of Pippen, Michael Jordan and Dennis Rodman you'd have to be brave to bet against that historic team.

One-on-one

In terms of keeping Steph Curry under 20 points, that would also surely prove a tough task. Pippen is one of the best defensive players the NBA has ever seen and has eight NBA all-defensive first team honours to back that up.

Nevertheless, with Curry setting new shooting standards this season, the reigning MVP would likely back himself even against a peak-level Pippen.
