A lot hinges on just how much better one feels the players are today than in Jordan's era.

I would argue that the average NBA player is much better now than the average player in Jordan's day. And the lower end of the league now is also better than the worst players in Jordan's time. I wouldn't be able to compare the best players from each era with much effectiveness, though, so... *shrug*.

except Defenses were a lot tougher during the 80's/90's...the play was rougher,remember the Jordan rules??the athleticism is higher now,but the game is more finesse imo.

Skeltor makes excellent points.  Jordan & the Bulls when they finally made it to the final also had a excellent teams when they went.
Pippen, hodges who was a 3 point beast & won the 3 point contest. He won the 3 point contest 3 times back to back & tied with Larry bird. 
    I think for the times Jordan won those rings they just had the better team components from the coach down. 

Oh & check out this article.  Makes a good point regarding the introduction to some expansion teams at that time.  Parallels some of what Skel says.
