The Golden State Warriors have tied the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls for most wins in a season at 72, and star forward Draymond Green may have received some encouragement from Chicago’s best player that year. Speaking to Ethan Strauss of ESPN, among other reporters, Green said that Michael Jordan approached him at the All-Star Game this year and told him that he and his teammates should break the wins-record.
“Mike told me at All-Star, ‘Go win the record. Go get the record. If y’all don’t win this record, I’m going to be hot and I’m blaming you,” Green said.
Sure enough, after tying the record with a big road win over the San Antonio Spurs at the AT&T Center last night, Golden State is just one win away from achieving true status as, quite possibly, the greatest NBA team of all time. All that stands in the way of Draymond Green and his teammates is the regular season finale against the Memphis Grizzlies. The good news is that the game is set to be played at Oracle Arena, but let’s not forget that Memphis nearly beat Golden State last week.
