"Records are meant to be broken"

They are meant to be broken, but I'd like to hang onto this one for a little bit longer. At least until the Bulls are legit contenders again. I'm talking about the 72-10 magical season of '95-'96. This year there are 3 teams supposedly threatening this mark, so I decided to reach way back in the archives and see how the records really stack up.

As of December 27:

'95-'96 Chicago Bulls: 23-3

'08-'09 Boston Celtics: 27-4

'08-'09 Cleveland Cavs: 25-4

'08-'09 LA Lakers: 24-5

It should be noted, however, that the Bulls following the Dec 26th loss went on a 18 game winning streak before losing 2 in a row in early February (they didn't lose in the entire month of January?!?!). I think the end of the season is really where these teams are going to be tested. I remember reading an article recently where one of the players were talking about that season and how they lost 2/3 of the games in the second half of the year (which they apparently did because through 41 games they were a ridiculous 38-3). Will it happen this year? I don't know, but I sure hope not. Gives me one more thing to hold onto while we wait for Pax to build a team around our first true legit star: D-Rose!
