Are these Warriors the greatest team ever? Better than MJ's Bulls?

Are the Golden State Warriors, who completed the best postseason record in NBA history by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 4-1 in the NBA Finals to finish 16-1, the greatest single-season team in league history?

The title of GOAT team has belonged to the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls since they won a record 72 games during the regular season and went 15-3 en route to a championship. Last year's Warriors had a chance to knock off those Bulls after they set a new record with 73 regular-season wins, but were unable to back it up with a championship.

Golden State was less dominant in the regular season this time around, winning 67 games, but put together the best playoffs the league has ever seen. Is that enough to topple the 1995-96 Bulls from their perch?
