If you’ve followed Michael Jordan’s career, then you know that he doesn’t come across as a guy who would willingly give up any of the records that he set during his time in the NBA. But according to Draymond Green, MJ is rooting for the Warriors to break the Bulls’ record of 72 wins in a regular season. The Warriors tied the Bulls’ record last night by beating the Spurs, and they now have a chance to break it during their final game of the season against the Grizzlies on Wednesday night. And after the game last night, Green said that, when he spoke with MJ earlier this season, the Hornets owner urged him to break the record and even said that, if they didn’t do it, MJ was going to blame Green for it.

“Mike told me at All-Star,’ Go win the record. Go get the record. If y’all don’t win this record, I’m going to be hot, and I’m blaming you,’” Green said last night.

That does kind of sound like something MJ would say, but do you really think he’s rooting for the Warriors to break one of the historic marks he set? Either way, we would expect MJ to say something publicly on Wednesday after the Warriors’ final game of the season.
