The Warriors have made it clear they’re gunning for the 1996 Bulls’ single-season wins record, and apparently Michael Jordan has no problem with the record being broken.
Thompson met Jordan at All-Star weekend in Toronto, and the Bulls legend gave his blessing.
Klay Thompson told me he met Michael Jordan last night. Jordan told him "go ahead and break the record". More on @CSNAuthentic...— Rosalyn Gold-Onwude (@ROSGO21) February 14, 2016
At 48-4, the Warriors are on pace for 76 wins – four more than the 72 games won by the Bulls during the 1995-1996 season.
FiveThirtyEight’s NBA projections have the Warriors finishing with 73 wins, though they’ll play six consecutive road games following the All-Star break.
Thompson beat teammate Steph Curry in the NBA three-point contest Saturday, and the pair will compete for the West in the All-Star game Sunday. Pau Gasol will be Chicago’s only representative after Jimmy Butler dropped out following a knee injury.
