Rasheed Wallace thinks the 2004 Detroit Pistons would destroy the 2017 Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors were arguably the greatest team of all time. Fresh off a record-breaking 73-win season, they added then-Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant, making their championship seem like a foregone conclusion.

And dominate they did, rolling through the playoffs with a torrid 16-1 record, capping it off with a gentleman sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers, who had upset them in seven games the season before.

The Warriors were simply too much to handle and would eventually establish themselves as perhaps the greatest team of all time. However, former Detroit Pistons forward Rasheed Wallace would like to speak up.

On “The Sheed & Tyler Show,” Wallace boldly claimed that the 2004 Detroit Pistons, a championship team he was a part of that famously defeated the Los Angeles Lakers led by Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant, would beat the 2017 Warriors .

“We have an NBA record that will never be broken,” Wallace said Thursday during the “Sheed & Tyler show,” presented by Underdog NBA. “We kept six or seven teams below 70 points. In this scoring era, that would never be broken again. We were the defense, we hung our hat on the defense.

“We would have beaten them to the punch. I’m going to address that because… Draymond (Green) said this recently on his and Shaq’s podcast. We would have beaten them for the simple fact that they couldn’t match us in any position.”
