Last season the Golden State Warriors finished with a 73-9 record, beating the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls (72-10) for best NBA record.  Unlike the Bulls, however, the Warriors didn’t win the NBA championship, instead, they lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers who staged an epic comeback after infamously being down 3-1.  Warriors owner Joe Lacob says Michael Jordan, who is the current owner of the Charlotte Hornets and a member of that 96′ Bulls team, isn’t impressed with the Warriors new record.  Lacob says Jordan relayed his thoughts when they had dinner in New York with other team owners during the collective bargaining agreement negotiations.

via ESPN:

“People were drinking, having a good time and all that. But there was a moment where [Jordan] said, ‘You know, 73 don’t mean …” Lacob said before trailing off during an interview with San Francisco radio station 95.7 FM The Game on Tuesday. “He did it. Michael Jordan did that. And I looked at him, and I just decided not to, you know, make a big deal of it. I said, ‘You know, you’re right? We didn’t win it. We had to get better.’

“He’s fantastic, and I’m not going to cross him. But that kind of hurt, you know?”

During the interview, Lacob also insisted the Warriors’ season was a success despite the team losing in the NBA Finals to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

“I think that was one of the greatest years you could ever have in any sport,” Lacob said.

Many people have said that the 16′ Warriors team is not better than the 96′ Bulls because although they set a new record, they didn’t win the championship.  Agree or Disagree?
