Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls won 72 games in the first season of his second three-peat, back in 1995-96.
The previous record was 69 wins.
Granted, the Bulls put up that total against an Eastern Conference that was devoid of many good teams, but 72 wins is 72 wins, right?
Well, now that the Los Angeles Lakers have acquired Dwight Howard in one of the most lopsided trades in NBA history, it’s time for folks to weigh in on just how good this Lakers team will be next season with a starting five of Howard, Pau Gasol, Metta World Peace, Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash.
Myself, I think the number is 70.
How about y’all?
