    Riley thinks 71-72 Lakers would beat 95-95 Bulls

    Heat President Pat Riley said he thinks his 1971-72 Lakers team featuring Wilt Chamberlain, Elgin Baylor and Jerry West would've defeated the 1995-96 Bulls in a seven-game series. That Bulls team owns the NBA record for regular-season victories with 72. ... The last time the Bulls played five games in six days they went 1-4 from April 8-13, 1983.
    I disagree, but I guess what is the guy supposed to say? Maybe not thread-worthy but I thought it would make for a nice discussion.

    I commend you for beating JB to the punch. In fact, I'm still at an awe you're not him right now.

    Riley is a cuckold. Dude retired Jordans jersey. He knows Jordan would take a dump on any of his teams.

    I will say this though, if any team would beat that Bulls team in a seven game series it'd be the 71-72 Lakers. That team's roster is stacked and Wilt would give us tons of problems. I'd never bet against Jordan though, ever.
    PSA: 1997 is not the year of my birth, it is my favorite Bulls team

    Yup, Riley is a moron. Looks like age is catching up to him.

    That 95-96 team would be hard to beat. Im 24 so I really don't know about all the older teams but there definitely isn't a team recently that would beat em'.

    Baylor wasn't even on the team. He played like 9 games all year.
    Not to mention West lost like 9 series in the finals and Wilt was a perenial choker. You put them up against a team on there level and they will fold as evidenced by the following year when they went down to the Knicks who didn't even have HCA.

    In 41 home games, the Bulls averaged 107 points while holding their opponents to 89.9, a winning margin of 17 points per game. The Bulls may have finally lost a home game but not before establishing an NBA record by winning its first 37.

    November Record: 12-2
    Highlights: Began the season with five consecutive wins, establishing a franchise record. Embarked on a six game Western road trip, going 5-1 as Michael Jordan became the Bulls’ all-time career-leader in games played with 697 games, surpassing Jerry Sloan.

    December Record: 13-1
    Highlights: Bulls win its first 11 games en route to a 13-1 record, dropping its only game to the Indiana Pacers. Phil Jackson surpasses Dick Motta (356-300) in becoming the Bulls all-time winningest coach. Scottie Pippen earns NBA Player of the Month honors (25.5 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 6.0 apg, 2.36 spg and 39.4 mpg).

    January Record: 14-0
    The Bulls go undefeated for the first time in its 30-year history as Michael Jordan and Phil Jackson earn NBA Player and Coach of the Month honors, respectively.

    February Record: 11-3
    Bulls lose twice in a row? It only happened once all season and it happened in early February on the road, losing to the Denver Nuggets and Phoenix Suns. The Bulls ended up winning the next seven straight and finish the month 11-3 for a 50-6 record, establishing an NBA mark for a team reaching 50 wins with the fewest losses.

    March Record: 12-2
    The Bulls largest defeat of the season happened on March 10 at New York as the Bulls lost by 32, 104-72. The Bulls won the next six games and set a new NBA record for most consecutive home games won at the start of the season --- 33.

    April Record: 10-2
    The Bulls accumulated the honors this month and missed one as well. The home loss to Charlotte ended the record for most consecutive regular season home games won at the start of the season at 37. On April 16, in Milwaukee, the Bulls set the NBA regular season record with a 70-9 mark, surpassing the ’72 Lakers’ 69-13 record. The Bulls missed an opportunity to tie the ’86 Celtics and its 40-1 mark when it lost to Indiana in the last regular-season game of the season. The Bulls did win the following day in Washington, finishing the regular season with a 72-10 record. Phil Jackson earned NBA Coach of the Month honors.
    It's interesting to note our only losses in April came at home and it was our only 2 home losses of the year.

    These type of comparisons make no sense. I'm going to say that the '85 Bears would easily beat the '41 Pistons.

    7 game series it wouldn't even be 6. His 1971-1972 Lakers would get killed by the 1995-1996 Bulls plus this is the only organization to ever kick Pat Riley's ***.
