2015-16 Golden State Warriors: 73-9
1995-96 Chicago Bulls: 72-10
1996-97 Chicago Bulls: 69-13
1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers: 69-13
1972-73 Boston Celtics: 68-14
1966-67 Philadelphia 76ers: 68-13

After bringing back all their key pieces and adding Jordan Bell, Nick Young and Omri Casspi into the mix, they might well be the most talented team in NBA history. We’re even comfortable projecting them to break beyond the 70-win brink yet again.
