Horace Grant: James’ Heat couldn’t beat Jordan’s Bulls

The Miami Heat are four wins away from winning three straight NBA championships. But according to Horace Grant, LeBron James and his Heat teammates wouldn’t come close to matching Michael Jordan and his Chicago Bulls teams.

On Tuesday, Grant told WSCR-AM in Chicago the following:

The Heat wouldn’t have had a chance. We would have locked them up. Especially with the rules today, Michael would have had a field day.

Horace GrantThe Heat are in their fourth consecutive NBA Finals and face the San Antonio Spurs for the second year in a row. The series starts Thursday night in San Antonio.

Grant, Jordan and the Bulls won three straight titles from 1991 to 1993. Grant left for Orlando in free agency in 1994, but Jordan and the Bulls did it again from 1996 to 1998. The Los Angeles Lakers were the last team to win three championships in a row, they did it from 2000-2002 (Grant was on the Lakers for their 2001 championship).

Grant later said he was rooting for the Spurs to dethrone the James, Dwyane Wade Chris Bosh and the rest of the Heat:

My fingers and toes are crossed that San Antonio wins just for the fact of being a fan of (coach Gregg) Popovich and the way that organization carries itself and the guys on the floor: Tim Duncan, (Manu) Ginobili, (Tony) Parker, (Kawhi) Leonard. I’m a big San Antonio fan.

The Bulls were incredibly dominant during their run to those first three titles. In the postseason during those years they swept five different teams and only played in one Game 7. From 1991-93 the Bulls were 45-13, while the Heat are 44-17 from 2012 to this season.

To be fair, comparing teams and postseason runs from different eras is really hard. Who knows who would have won, but it’s really hard to bet against Michael Jordan in any situation.
