Phil Jackson on Lakers Pursuing 72 Wins Record

November 8, 2010

Looks like Phil is trying to play down the Lakers’ dominance.

From ESPN:

The proper question isn’t “Will the Lakers win 72 games?” There are too many variables to give an accurate answer. We can’t predict injuries, flight delays or mood swings. What we can assess is whether the Lakers have what it takes to win 72 games. For that, we turn to the coach of these Lakers, who also happens to be the only man to coach an NBA team to a 72-win season.

“Not the same defense, unfortunately,” Phil Jackson said in comparing this team to the 1995-96 Bulls. “We have a lot of offensive prowess.”
