Although being the owner of the team that made the NBA 73 record this season, Joe Lacob was naturally and rightfully just in sporting his pride. His interview at the radio station also alluded towards his level-headedness. He could have very easily been mad a Michael Jordan, for coming up to him and saying that Warriors setting a 73-record win didn’t count for anything.
However, despite being hurt, he chose to take the episode sportingly and acknowledged the fact that Jordan having won the title after setting the same record in his time, was not out of place in saying so.
All that doesn’t matter anyways because, during the interview, Jacob insisted the Warriors’ season was a success in his eyes despite the team losing in the NBA Finals to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and so should it be according to the general populace as well.
“I think that was one of the greatest years you could ever have in any sport,” Lacob said.
That is most definitely not the mentality of the G.O.A.T.
Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob revealed to San Francisco radio station 97.5 The Game that Michael Jordan was not particularly awestruck by the Warriors’ record setting 73-win season.
And it was upsetting to hear Jordan, a six-time NBA champion and current Charlotte Hornets owner, make these remarks at a dinner in New York with other owners, during collective bargaining agreement talks.
