"Not a Lot of Bull"

Because 72-10 vs 73-9 is like being able to make a basket while getting hacked vs making a (football) goal without a goalie respectively... Hence, even if the GSW emerged as champions, it'll not be as dominating and as "convincingly-earned" as that of the 72-10 Bulls...

That said, the Bulls-then from a very defense-oriented NBA period could have recorded a better win-loss slate in today's NBA generation. Whereas the current Warriors couldn't have done any better during the "bad boys" era or the "Hack-a-Shaq" time as attested by how the LeBron James-led Cavaliers dominated them and took control by apparently applying a '90's-kind of sticky defense...

The Warriors know how to play in today's brand of basketball for a fact (and shooting at will in fact) since Steve Kerr (coach), being part of that 72-10 Bulls team as a shooter himself, knows the difference and how to take advantage of the current NBA's loose-kind of defense having gained the experience from the best; as much as he was "entrusted" to gain such an experience on being open for a shot because the main man (His Airness) then was expected to be "hacked"...

However, LeBron and company just knew how to reverse their fate by reversing as well GSW's approach and shutting down the Warriors' open play for a comfort zone, thus everything was "reversed"... The underdogs then are now the top dogs!

Nonetheless, the 72-10 Bulls could've set a better record in today's style of basketball with a few loses probably dealt by the LBJ-led Cavs, Spurs and probably even Steve Kerr's 73-9 Warriors among others... And so, one thing remains, more than the win-loss record, the 72-10 Bulls is still the team to beat!

Don't worry Steve Kerr, you're still part of that...
