The 1995-96 Chicago Bulls are regarded by many as the best NBA team of time.

Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen led the team to a regular season record of 72-10. That record was alway seen as one that would never be beaten, until this season.

The Golden State Warriors are ripping up modern-day record books. The reigning NBA champions won their first 24 games of the season and currently lie 48-4 for the season. The Bulls' record is well within reach.

One of the stars of the Warriors team is Klay Thompson. The 26-year-old was speaking on Saturday night after winning the NBA Three-Point Contest when he revealed that Jordan wants the Warriors to beat the Bulls' record.

"He said; 'Go ahead and break the record'... I still get starstruck when I see him".
