TORONTO (KRON) — Considered the best basketball player of all-time, Michael Jordan had some strong words for Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson during the NBA’s All-Star break.
According to Warriors sideline reporter Rosalyn Gold-Onwude, Jordan told Thompson “go ahead and break the record” referring to the 1995-96 season where they recorded 72 wins and 10 losses, the best ever in an NBA regular season.
The Warriors have had the best 52 game start of all-time. They are 48-4 and are on pace to surpass the record set by Chicago about a decade ago. Ironically, Dubs’ head coach Steve Kerr, was a member of that Bulls record team.
Golden State returns to action this Friday in Portland against the Trail Blazers.
