LeBron James is a bona fide superstar in the NBA today. As a 12-time All-Star, four-time MVP, two-time NBA champion and two-time Finals MVP, the 31-year-old is no stranger to making history.
The Golden State Warriors have shown they have a penchant for re-writing the record books this season themselves.
With just two wins needed in their remaining two outings after they defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 100-99 last night, the Warriors are within touching distance of the Chicago Bulls' 1995-96 regular season record.

The record might not have an effect on James' legacy, but he thinks it's pretty cool for sport as a whole to continually push the boundaries and believes it wouldn't make Michael Jordan's Bulls of 95-96 any less significant if the Warriors do manage the historic feat.
"Records are meant to be broken," James said prior to Saturday's 105-100 loss to the Chicago Bulls. "That doesn't mean your record that's broken [and] anyone is looking less of you. You have rushing records that are broken. You have home run records that are broken. You have 100-yard dash [times] that are broken. You have all types of records that are broken, but no one ever looks down upon the record that is broken.
"You actually praise it even more. You look back at it like, 'Wow, they really did that?' So having Golden State in a position where if they win three in a row they can break that record, I think it's pretty cool."
The Warriors have to travel to the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday before wrapping the season up against the Memphis Grizzlies - whom they just beat - on Thursday evening.
