    this GSW team is not on the same level with the bulls, now we got the final verdict, there will be no arguing any more, when you go 73-9 in the regular season and you can't finish the job, you are just a side note in the history of the NBA

    Those Bulls definitely finished with a better 2-year run than this Warriors team. If I recall, the '97 Bulls also nearly won 70 games in back-to-back seasons. I think they lost their final game at home to wind up with "only" 69.

    In 91-92 the Bulls were chasing 70 also. They had a lot pressure from the media making it a big deal. They ended up losing a crucial game against the expansion Magic(the expansion Raptors gave the 72 win Bulls a loss too) by 3 points and needed to go undefeated the rest of the way. Needless to say, they lost 2 more to the Bird less Celtics and the Cavs who they'd end up facing in the ECF.

    Bulls=60+ wins in 5 of their 6 championship runs. Their lowest being 57. I don't care about a 2 year run. To be the greatest you need to match a run of 6 rings in 8 seasons in the modern era.
