Do you foresee any team ever beating that total?[/quote]
The Boston Celtics in the late 50s- the 60s are the "GOATs"
The 141 wins in 2 seasons is much more doable than winning 11 Championships in 13 seasons....

One of the major things in this rediculous thread blaming loomis is that it takes a lot of money to pay good veteran players.
