The Golden State Warriors have started the 2015-16 NBA season on a mission to prove their championship was no fluke. Stephen Curry has undoubtedly been playing like the MVP and the Warriors are steadily on their way to breaking records. They are currently 11-0 to start the season and are four wins away from tying the 1994 Houston Rockets & 1948-49 Washington Capitol’s NBA record of 15 wins with zero losses.
Apart from Curry, role players like Draymond Green and Harrison Barnes have also stepped their games up and have been a huge factor in what has mostly been a domination of every team they’ve faced. Even when it looked like they would surely lose against the lowly Brooklyn Nets, they flipped it around in overtime and turned it into a destruction.
There have been many comparisons with the 90s Chicago Bulls teams with several people wondering whether the Warriors can match the 1995-96 Bulls’ legendary 72-10 record. Former Bull, Ron Harper, spoke out on Twitter the other day and although he attests that records are meant to be broken, he believes his Bulls would sweep this Warriors team.

Harper confidently says that the 95-96 Bulls would only need four games of a seven game series against these Warriors.
Although this is only a hypothetical scenario, as impressive as this Warriors team has been, there is no way you can argue with Ron Harper. Those Bulls teams will be too difficult to match, especially considering they were the first to do it and six total championships. Just take a look at this to put into perspective just how impressive that 72-10 record really is.
