TOKYO (Dec. 31, 2015) — The other day, Herb Brown, a longtime NBA coach, was asked how many games the Golden State Warriors will win this season.

In his email reply, he didn’t pinpoint a number, but this is what he told me:

Golden State’s upside is tremendous. Fun to watch their great ball movement
and awareness. Seem to complement each other. Have chance to beat Bulls’
record (72-10 during the 1995-96 season) if they don’t get bored nor devastated by injuries. Very long season.
