History

OK, here they are, the 9 best regular seasons in NBA history:
’95-’96: Bulls (72-10)

’71-’72: Lakers (69-13)
’96-’97: Bulls (69-13)

’66-’67: 76ers (68-13)
’72-’73: Celtics (68-14)

’85-’86: Celtics (67-15)
’91-’92: Bulls (67-15)
’99-’00: Lakers (67-15)
’06-’07: Mavericks (67-15)
That means the Mavericks just tied the 6th best season ever.

Interesting to consider the stars of the other teams:
Jordan/Pippen
West/Wilt
Wilt
Cowens/Havlicek
Bird/McHale
Shaq/Kobe
Dirk/Howard
Sounds kind of funny, doesn’t it? Let’s hope it doesn’t still sound funny five years from now (or, more to the point, two months from now).

Golden State, here we come! Is anyone as worried as I am?

put me in the "worried" category, but I still think we win in 5-6

On Page 2 Scoop Jackson interviewed Nash about the MVP award. I know he's won two times in a row and it's probably more interesting to hear what he thinks about winning a third. But...

Dirk is probably going to win it this year and I would like to read a freaking interview with him (even if he does say 'obviously' a hundred times). I want to hear what Dirk thinks about winning the MVP etc.

I'm not worried about Golden State, but I'll sure be watching to see if we play the Suns or the Spurs!
