Former NBA player, Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman couldn’t care less if the Golden State Warriors go on to pass the historic mark of winning 70 or more games in an NBA season.
“People say they’re going to go 72-10, I don’t care they can go 81-1,” Rodman said during an appearance on SiriusXM NBA Radio.
“We did it first,” Rodman said.
Former NBA rebounding champion also mentioned on the show that the league itself was “110 percent better” when the Bulls won 72 games than it is today.
Only two other teams – the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers, and 1996-97 Bulls – have come close to the record, each reaching 69 victories. The 2006-07 Dallas Mavericks got 67, while the 2014-15 Warriors also won 67 (and the title as well).
Rodman played for Detroit Pistons, San Antonio Spurs, Chicago Bulls, LA Lakers and Dallas Mavericks. He was a two-time All-Star, and playing in 911 career NBA games, averaged 7.3 points and 13.1 rebounds per game.
He won two NBA rings as member of the Detroit Pistons in 89 and 90, and later won three more rings with the Chicago Bulls in 96, 97 and 98. In 2011 Rodman got inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame.
Meanwhile, another Bull from the 1995-96 squad, Ron Harper has previously said that he encourages the Warriors to beat the record, among other things.
