Default What would it take to beat the 72W-10L record of 95/96 Chicago Bulls?

We had a discussion today at lunch with other guys about what would it take?

I think if we need a superstar in each of the 5 position and that should do it.

We currently have 4 of those 5 spots vs the 96 Bulls 3 super stars, so it should be able to do it on right? At least on paper.

If it's any time in Kobe's lifetime or Dwight's lifetime to do it, that time is now ( a possibility to break the 96 Bulls record) and maybe another chance in the next season. I hope Dwight and Kobe see that. If you have a big 4 and could not break it, then is that an embarassment?

The 2004 season was just a far stretch because of Kobe / Shaq feud.



95/96 Chicago Bulls:
M Jordan , G/F
S Pippin, F/G
D Rodman, F
?

12/13 Lakers
* Nash - PG
* Kobe - SG
* Pau - F/C
* Dwight - C
MWP/J Hill / Jamison

We will have to be extremely fortunate as far as avoiding injuries to our key guys in order to break that record. Believe it or not, I actually think this team is talented enough to win 70 games. Or at least come close to it. It should be an interesting season.

I think the OP is missing the point. Its not a question of superstars, its a question of role players. We dont have the depth that 96 Chicago team had. They had guys like Kukoc and Kerr coming off the bench. Our Lakers team isnt nearly as deep. Is this team capable of beating that record, yeah, sure. There are a couple teams in the league right now who are potentially capable. But when you take an individual superstar killer like MJ and surround him with a talented roster at least 8 deep, aint nothing but a prayer for World Peace 72-10 gonna be broken.

We are not going to break that record and I don't even want us to try........it's all about the playoffs, and being an older team we need to rest a bit and not grind out every game.

BTW 33 straight > 72-10

Forget the 70s record.

Forget the 60s

Or the 50s

Maybe if they have new good coach to lead this stacked team, they maybe in the 40s
