Jordan, Pippen congratulate Warriors on 73rd win
For almost 20 years, the 72-10 regular season record of the Chicago Bulls has stood as the standard of greatness but on Thursday (Manila time), it was all but gone.
Move over Chicago, Oakland will now occupy that throne after the Golden State Warriors finished the 2015-2016 season with an impressive 73-9 slate.
Michael Jordan, the alpha male of the Bulls, congratulated the Warriors on their legendary run.
“I want to congratulate the Warriors on their amazing season,” Jordan said through his manager Estee Portnoy. “The game of basketball is always evolving and records are made to be broken.”
“The Warriors have been a lot of fun to watch and I look forward to seeing what they do in the playoffs.”
Scottie Pippen, who once said the 1995-1996 Bulls would sweep the current Warriors, offered his praise for the 2015 NBA Champions.
“Knowing what it takes to win 72, I’ve got to tip my hat to the Warriors for getting 73,” Pippen tweeted. “Good luck to Steve Kerr and company in the Playoffs.”
Kerr, head coach of the Warriors, was also a vital member of the Bulls during their 72-win season and he was there when the Bulls won their second three-peat. RAM
