Mavericks on Track to be Amongst Best All-Time

The Dallas Mavericks, who will face the Phoenix Suns on Sunday in a highly anticipated match-up of Western Conference powers, have a chance to become just the second team in NBA history to win at least 70 games. Five NBA teams have won at least 68 games, with the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls topping the list by going 72-10 en route to the first title of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen's second "three-peat." My newest NBCSports.com article looks at how Dallas compares to those five teams:

It's amazing how the 96 Bulls went after every game with so much intensity.

I think if the Lakers and 76ers wanted to, they could have won 70 something games, but I don't think they saw a reason to.

That 1967 76er team has been forgotten because they only won one title. That team should have won a long string of titles.

How about the 85-86 Celtics who would beat any of these championship teams of the last 20 years who went 50-1 and home. And I hate the Celtics. They could have won 72-74 games.

I hope for the Mav's sake they end up with the record for total season wins. Just think, if they would have lost their first 4 games. Records don't mean much if you don't win the NBA Championship. The Spurs have finally found their team chemistry, so don't be too surprised if...... Go Spurs Go!!!! There will be no repeat again of last years NBA Champs that's for sure.
