Will there ever be another 70+ win team?

Or are the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls in a class of their own?

That Bulls team was real special though.

Unless the NBA changes the amount of games that will be played in a season, it's guaranteed some team or another will accomplish that feat. A more realistic question would have been, will any team win 70+ games in the near future

Yes and its not that hard, the Cavs were able to win 66 games and have a 40-1 home record, not that far from 70+

That 95-96 Chicago Bulls team was really special, but where from what I believe records are meant to be broken. That would really be something if some team can actually accomplish this feat.

Are you serious? You think it's pretty much easy to win 70+ games in the NBA like it's a walk in the park? Guess again Wow plus this season is even going to be tougher there are going to be many elite teams this up and coming season who all pretty much added more fire power Lakers, Spurs, Magic, Celtics, Cavs, Mavs, Blazers, and Nuggets. All these teams are going to be beating up on each other. I do agree that some team will get to 70+ wins though, but not this season.

LOL. That's funny.

And yes the Cavs were close with 66 wins. And the 40 and 1 home record was crazy.

But 72 wins by those Bulls man that's just insane. That's near perfection.

I really don't see it happening in the near future at least.

AHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! That's cute! The Celtics almost did it 2 seasons ago after minimal experience playing together. The Big 3 and Sheed might push 70 next season.

Yes they were close a couple years ago. And Sheed was a big pick up. But keep in mind the East did get stronger so I think it will be real tough for the Celtics to win 70+ games this season.

IMO I don't see that happening.

Yeah it's easy, not a walk in the park but still easy. Winning games in the season means nothing if you can't win in the playoffs. Ie. Cleveland won 66 games last year and pretty much got dominated in the ECFs, Dallas won 69 games 3 seasons ago and got beaten in the first round. Any team can win alot of games in the season, the difference was that the Bulls won a championship that year also.

A more appropiate question would've been, will there ever be a team as dominant as the '95-96 Bulls and the answer to that is yes, there will be, because no matter how high the records are, someone will come along sooner or later and break it.

Btw keeping in mind that the playoffs are more important, the '00-01 Lakers had the most dominant playoff run in NBA history 15-1, losing only one game and that in the NBA Finals at the hands of the NBA MVP Allen Iverson. Here's a good question; Will any team every go undefeated throughout the NBA Playoffs?

the closest team who can make that happen is the lakers with the best perimeter defenders best player best coach 2nd best European player and the candy man oh and d-fish aka d-clutch

It wasn't 40-1 it was 39-2, I don't care if Lebron wasn't playing the fact still stands 39-2, if you want to be a smarta$s then you could say 39-1

True. I forgot that they lost that last game when they were resting LeBron.

Either way 39-2 is impressive.

there will be another team to win 70+, doubt it happens this season, but the Lakers and Celtics have a shot so long as Artest and 'Sheed fit in on their new teams. I think the Cavs, Magic, Nuggets, Mavs, etc. are all gonna be in the 60+ win club, don't see anyone else (at least this season) outside of Boston/LA pulling off 70 wins....and even thats a long shot.

yes but losing 4-2 in the ECFs wasn't very impressive, the Bulls won a championship, you'd expect Cavs to atleast get to the Finals, w/e still nice home record. Funny how only the teams that made the Finals were the only ones to beat the Cavs at home with Lebron in the lineup. (Orlando did it in the ECFs)

I think the record wont be broken in my lifetime, although it's not impossible but so ridiculously hard to do, especially with so many players resting after the races are slowing down and the rate of injuries in the NBA, but this is y it wont happen simplely put to much talent to go around, every team has good talent and with the cap u can't jus buy a team(Yankees) and any team can win on any given night, thats y the playoffs are 7 game series and not just 1 game. If it were to happen this is about the only way possible that it could, and this WONT happen but for the sake of agrument here we go....

Say after next season Lebron doesn't opt out or does opt out but resigns with Cleveland and Wade decides to opt out and he leaves for the Cavs, plus Shaq being that he is getting older and not his old self takes a pay cut down near 10-13 mil and Illgauskas resigns for around the MLE(plus they have Shaq Iggy and Lebrons bird rights).Look at this lineup.

PG-MO/Wade/Gibson
SG-Wade/West/Parker
SF-Lebron/Parker
PF-Hickson/Varejo
C-Shaq/Iggy

Plus their cap would actually be lower then it is right now haha

Also maybe another player here or there next that offseason... This team would be about the only possible way that someone could break the record but this is almost impossible to happen in fact i think it is. And an offseason like 2010 only comes around once in along @$$ time so the chances of pairing up superstars like this is jus highly highly unlikely

Lakers will be lucky to get 55 without L.O. I can see Boston doing it this season if they ALL stay healthy. Nobody else though.

Also the BULLS tricked like 4 games that season, so they could have won like 75-76gms with a few bounces, but it is wat it is...special squad

Yes, but not this year, even tho there are some capable teams of 65 wins, but its pretty tight this year to win even over 60

Haha no seriously i think there is a possibility of another 70 win team, we will have to wait to see where the 2010 free agents land.

Oh course it's possible. Difficult as hell but 100% possible. The Mavs a couple years back won 67 games and they lost their first 4. If they won those 4, that's 71, so yeah they were close. If teams can get reasonable close every year, somebody is bound to do it eventually.

I like the Celtics chances this year of winning 70+ this year if healthy all season long.

Depends on if a team wants all 100% of the pressure on them to win it all. Because if you win 70 and don't win it all, then you would probably go down as the team that choked the most in nba history.

Didn't Phil Jackson state this last season that a team located on either the East or West Coast would have difficulty matching the Chicago Bulls 72 win season due to the larger time zone jumps.

I think it will and the Cavs went 39-2 at home.... and I know we will see a better team than that in the future

07-27-2009, 05:38 PM
yea its easier now with so many teams the talent is watered down and not spread out evenly. every year it seems the best teams sign very good veteran players for almost nothing.

The cavs may of had 66 last year but the celtics and magic got better. There's too many elite teams this year and they'll all keep themselves from getting to 70. Now if the cavs stayed the same (or got better aka Shaq) and the celtics lost one of the big three or the magic lost howard or turkoglu and lewis i would say they have a better shot.
