Rasheed Wallace and the 2003–04 Detroit Pistons were a force to be reckoned with.

They were a historic team that accomplished a major Finals upset, beating Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O’Neal, and the Los Angeles Lakers in just five games.

Because of that, Wallace feels the team could have taken down the 2016-17 Golden State Warriors.

Draymond Green, a major part of that squad, kindly disagreed with Wallace.

“There is a 0% chance that ’04 team could beat us,” Green said, via The Volume.

While Pistons fans might agree with Wallace, many others think that Green is right.

The 2016-17 Warriors won 67 games in the regular season and then went on a wild 16-1 run in the playoffs.

That team had Green, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Kevin Durant in their prime and seemed impossible to slow down.

They had multiple players who could post amazing numbers night after night and Green just doesn’t think the Pistons would be able to keep up.

As great as the Warriors were, some claim they had a weak spot when it came to defense.

As for the Pistons, they were a strong defensive team that could give the Warriors trouble.

Their group, featuring Wallace, Chauncey Billups, Tayshaun Prince, and Richard Hamilton would have definitely limited even the best shooting.

In the end, we will never have a definitive answer to this debate and both sides will claim their team is the one that would have come out on top.

But no matter what, both of these teams have earned their spot in NBA history and are still loved to this day, which is partly why so many people are debating this topic.
