There hasn't been teams who could get in the Bulls range often, the Pistons, Dallas, and Boston were close but were tired down the stretch. No has come closer than 5 games.

Here are the best records in recent times

07-08 Boston 66 wins
06-07 Dallas 67 wins
05-06 Detroit 64 wins
04-05 Phoenix 62 wins
03-04 Indiana 61 wins
02-03 San Antonio 60 wins
01-02 Sacremento 61 wins
00-01 San Antonio58 wins
99-00 Los Angeles 67 wins
98-99 San Antonio 37 wins (Lockout season)
97-98 Chicago, Utah 62 wins
96-97 Chicago 69 wins

no, its just too long of a season, and not to down on what the bulls did, but the nba was a bit down then and they were head and shoulders above everyone else IMO. MJ was/is the ultimate competitor, and to have the fire he did for every game is unmatched. period. its too hard and its not even necessarily a good idea...

Never. The only guy who i've seen who wants it as bad as Jordan is Kobe. And I don't think he can get his team up enough to win 73 games in one season. In order to do that, you have to dedicate your life to defense. And its obvious the Lakers aren't ready to do that. And they are the only team that has that potential right now.

the lakers could right now because they have pau and bynum gaurding the middle and if we trade odom for artest we would probably have the best defense, even if the trade doesn't happen you still have three big men and the best player in the world and there going to be hard to beat.that's just me but in order for that to happen they have to stay healthy, play defense and have team chemistry with those three things in tact they could do it. but then again im also a laker fan.

Yes. I believe if a team like Boston (Who 2 years ago didn't exactly get extremely young talent) can win 66 then a team can win more than 72 games. Perhaps the Nets in 2010? Hehe. If they get enough cap room... you never know.

:no::no::no: ...72 wins in THIS NBA is IMPOSSIBLE! There is too much talent. Example: Lakers lost to Charlotte, Memphis, Sac, Atlanta, Milwaukee, and Jersey last year...

haha... I see. Jeez only a Laker fan would have the cajones to actually believe that their team will win 72 games... I really hope this is a joke. B/c if Laker fans really think the lakers are going to win 72 games next year they are going to be very very disappointed...

Fireworld

I think EVER is too strong of a word cause it will happen someday. I'm sure there was a record before that, that people never thought would be beat (can anyone look that up?) so i think it will happen, i hope in my life time:)

Its just to hard to do, everything has to go right, no injuries, all of your players playing at a extremely high level, and teams rest their players for the playoffs

If anyone could beat it next season its either your Celtics or my Lakers but yeah, not happening anytime soon:eyebrow:

It's possible but its not smart for your team...if you have the one seed locked up you shouldn't even bother going after the 72 wins....Just focus on the postseason

Very true statement...but the question isnt who has the best chance of doing it next year...its can someone do it...and NO. Maybe in 15 years if the league hits a lull...but right now there are too many good young players coming through...

Maybe as a whole, but the top teams were loaded. Seattle, Orlando, Houston, Utah and the Knicks.

Also don't forget that the Bulls lost 5 of their 10 games to teams .500 and under.

41-41 could happen if the league loses fans and gets down to two teams... other then that NO!

The only player capable of leading a team right now is LBJ, he is built like a horse and can play at an MVP level for 82 games and the playoffs. He wants to win, although, it has yet to be seen if he will ever get a supporting cast.

In this era of the NBA, I will say no, that a team will never get 72 wins, and simply dominate teams the way MJ and the Bulls did so.

Well the odds of winning the Lottery Jackpot is 1 in 146,107,962.00!! But it still happens very frequently! so, never say never.:p:D

Winning 70 games in the NBA is probably harder than going undefeated in the NFL.

Wont happen anytime soon, too much talent in the NBA right now, some decent teams are gonna miss the playoffs next season.

possible.
lakers could possibly make a run at it if they were in the east.

Frrrrank!!!
07-21-2008, 11:59 PM
i dont think any team will pass that, most teams when locked a playoff position just take their foot off the gas peddle, but mj didnt seem to know the word let up.so until another mj walks through that door i dont see it happening...

I think it's possible but when the playoffs come around the team is not gonna have anything left in the tank.

Westbrook36
07-22-2008, 12:39 AM
The only way it happens is if Lebron gets a really good team built around him in the east. I think MJ Kobe and Lebron have the Heart to play every night with that kind of game. I mean when Lebron is off he still has close to a Triple Double/Double Double. You give him a good team around him and BAM you might have a good team.

to long of a season to many good teams and injury's

07-22-2008, 05:27 AM
It's tough to win 60 games let alone 72 games, you have to be mentally tough and play great, great defense to crack the 70 win mark. Also, you have to have a major injury free season. I think someone may tie the record, but I don't know win. The 96 Bulls were a great team dedicated to one purpose and that was being the best ever. They may not go down as the greatest team ever, but their record alone is a huge argument for them when comparing them to the best teams all time.

I dont think winning 73 is possible. too many things have to go your way, no injuries, hit all your shots, no offcourt issues etc and you have to have a big time franchise player surrounded by amazing talent. I dont see the celtics, lakers etc ever getting there with their current teams.

SHONIE
07-22-2008, 11:22 AM
insert current celtics in the east 6 or 7 years ago. If the current team played every season from 2000-2001 through the current season they could've made a run at it (assuming the players didn't age with each season lol)

There is too much talent in today's NBA for one team to be so dominant.

The celtics would have had to pay a lot more for KG at that time probably and also for sure would have had to pay higher for ray allen than essentially a draft pick. They never would had both these guys 5-8 years ago.. sorry not rational thinking.
