Best single-season record:
1995-96 Chicago Bulls (72-10)

Greatest team of all time? According to the record books, absolutely. In his first full season back on the court (remember that stint with the Chicago White Sox?), M.J. rode out the Bulls' high expections by leading his team to the finest season in NBA history. Along the way, he notched another scoring title to top Chamberlain's record of seven, three MVP awards (season, All-Star, Finals) and handed Chicago its fourth title. The Bulls' season record broke he 1971-72 Lakers' record of 69 wins in a season.
