Michael Jordan Tells Warriors Owner ’73 [Wins] Don’t Mean Sh**’


Even though he is retired, Michael Jordan is still the most competitive human on the planet.

The six-time NBA champion and Hall of Famer laid down the law to Warriors owner Joe Lacob that the historic 73-win season from Golden State in 2015-16 means nothing without a championship title. Golden State’s championship hopes were erased when LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers came back from 3-1 to win the title.

Golden State’s 73-9 record overtook Michael Jordan’s 1995-96 Chicago Bulls teams’ 72-10 record as the greatest single season in NBA history.


“On the collective bargaining agreement, I was on the labor committee and I was in New York having a bunch of dinners with Michael Jordan and other owners,” Lacob said on 95.7 The Game’s “The Afternoon Delight” with Greg Papa. “There were six of us. Actually, Dan was one of them, Dan Gilbert. 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. And I looked at him and I just decided not to make a big deal of it. I said, you know, you’re right, we didn’t win it, we had to get better.”


During Chicago’s 72-10 season, though, they were crowned champions.
