History

In the 1995–96 season, the Chicago Bulls set the NBA record for wins, finishing the season 72–10.[1] The Bulls also became the only team to ever win 70 regular season games, easily finishing first overall in their division, conference, and the entire NBA. The Bulls swept the Miami Heat in the first round of the playoffs, defeated the New York Knicks in five games of the semifinals, then swept the Orlando Magic in the Conference Finals. They then defeated the Seattle SuperSonics in the 1996 NBA Finals, winning their fourth NBA title in six seasons.

Team members? Heck, these two guys are the pillars of the Bulls' dynasty. In fact, over the last two decades, no championship team has depended on two players more than the Bulls have on Jordan and Pippen. In the 1995-96 season, Jordan [a league-high 31.2 points per game] and Pippen [21.9] combined to average 50 percent of their team's points -- the highest rate ever for a champion during that span.
