Michael Jordan Confirms The Warriors’ 73-Win Season ‘Don’t Mean Sh*t’

The greatest basketball player of all time has confirmed that the Golden State Warriors’ 73-win season is meaningless after they lost three straight games in the NBA Finals to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Yes, the Golden State Warriors incredible season will go down as the best regular season record in NBA history. However, failing to complete that historic season with an NBA championship eliminated the Warriors claim as the best team in NBA history.

That claim still belongs to Michael Jordan and the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls. Jordan made that very clear when speaking to Warriors owner Joe Lacob at an owners dinner in New York.

Lacob joined 95.7 The Game’s “The Afternoon Delight” on Tuesday where he recalled the remark Jordan made to him at the dinner.

“I was in New York having a bunch of dinners with Michael Jordan and other owners,” Lacob said. “There were six of us. Actually, Dan was one of them, Dan Gilbert,” Lacob clarified pointing out that the Cavaliers owner was with them.

“Anyway, Michael Jordan–people are drinking and having a good time and all that, but there was a moment where he said, you know, ’73 don’t mean [blank].’ He did it, Michael Jordan did that,” Lacob said.

President Obama, who is a big Bulls fan, clearly agrees with the former Chicago superstar. When the Cavaliers visited the White house to be recognized for their championship, Obama congratulated the team for coming back after trailing three games to one.

“The first team in history to dig themselves out of a hole like that,” Obama said. “And, I should add that by knocking off the Warriors they cemented the 1996 Bulls as the greatest team of all time. So your president thanks you for that.”
