Michael Jordan tells Warriors to break the Bulls' 72-10 record

Published 1 Comments

The Golden State Warriors are having an incredible season, and they're well on their way towards winning another NBA Championship.

Currently with a 48-4 record, the Warriors are sitting comfortably at the top of the Western Conference, and uncontested at the top of the NBA ladder. 

With a record of 24-0 at home, and sitting on an 11-game winning streak, the team from the Bay Area are well on their way to chase down the famous record of the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls of 72-10.

So how does one of the legends of that team, Michael Jordan, feel about the Warriors still within a chance to break his team's record this season? He's all up for them doing so.

He said, according to Warriors' Klay Thompson who spoke to Warriors sideline reporter Rosalyn Gold-Onwudevia Fox Sports: "Go ahead and break the record."

The question that will be raised in Warriors' minds though as the season continues will be whether or not they should keep going for the record or rest their players for the playoffs. Obviously, the championship is still their top priority, but Thompson still thinks they can win games even if they rest their best.

He said, via’s Marc Stein: “We’ll probably rest guys down the stretch, but we’re so deep of a team that we should have a chance to win every night.

“Obviously, we’re playing for more than just 73 wins — we’re playing for a championship — but if it’s right there for us, we might as well try and take it.”

The Warriors might not get another great opportunity to break this record, so they must do everything they can to try and break this record while they are still in contention.
