Dennis Rodman: 'I Don't Think The Warriors Could Beat' The 72-Win Bulls

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Dennis Rodman made his presence felt this year at Wing Bowl 24. The wild and crazy event was one of the craziest things Rodman has ever experienced.

Perhaps even crazier than consuming massive amounts of wings at 7:oo a.m. is winning 72 games in an NBA season. Rodman and the Bulls accomplished that feat and people are speculating whether or not this year's Warriors team is better than that record setting Bulls team.

"I've always said from day one, if they break the record great, thank you. You guys have a great team, but the game has changed so much. I don't think that Golden State can even last or even come close to even playing with us in the 90's because back then you could actually kick people ass, you could throw punches, you could do all the stuff like that. Now, you can't do anything.

"No, I don't think they can beat us."

Rodman was known as a hard-worker on the court and his style might have played very well with the Philadelphia fan base. He spoke highly of fans in this town after spending the morning with them at Wing Bowl.

"It was always crazy coming back here in Philadelphia because people here are very loyal to their team," Rodman said of Philly fans. "You have some great -- you have Julius Erving, you have [Allen] Iverson, and a couple of guys that was here for a long time. It's one of those cities -- it's hardcore here man. If you winning, they all about you."
