Now, in the continuing series of NBA “what ifs,” it’s time to move on to something new.
Ron Harper says the Michael Jordan-led 1996 Bulls that went 72-10 were better than the undefeated Warriors (12-0), who have a shot at the 72-win record.
Records are made to be broken but that Bulls team was built on defense and was a BETTER team than the Golden State Warriors. Harper added, and no one wins a championship in November and December.
Harper was the sixth-leading scorer on the Bulls that season, averaging 7.4 points per game.
The fifth-leading scorer on the ’96 Bulls? Warriors coach Steve Kerr at 8.4.
