My vote goes to the '98 team. They were the only team over the Bulls 6-peat to really come close to defeating MJ and co. That was such a fun series to watch. A fun season in general. We had the lead going into the 4th quarter in game 7 and only lost by 5 points. That team had an unbelievable basketball IQ: Reggie Miller, Mark Jackson, Chris Mullin...wow. They had a regular season point differential of +8 as well. They were 5th in the league in defense.
