Kerr believes Heat won't break Bulls' 72-win barrier

Former Bulls guard and current TNT analyst Steve Kerr doesn't believe the newly remodeled Miami Heat will surpass 72 wins in the upcoming regular season, despite their loaded talent.

"Those were very unique circumstances with Michael Jordan coming back after his playoff failure after his return from baseball. He was so motivated and it seems like he won about 10 games on his own that year because he decided he didn't want us to lose. He had such an incredible edge." (Chicago Tribune)
