Where Does Golden State’s 73-9 Record Rank Among the Greatest?
When the '95-'96 Bulls pulled off a 72-10 record, we were told no one could beat that.
That was not true. Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors went 73-9. The 2007 New England Patriots were poised to pull off what would have been, in my opinion, the greatest accomplishment in sports history, but the New York Giants had other ideas. The UCONN women's basketball team also deserves consideration for basically never losing.
This is right there at the top, though. They really need to win the title. It will always be history, but it will seem like a waste otherwise. The 72-10 Bulls team was under immense pressure, but they closed the deal.
They were a team in every sense of the word.
This Golden State team has all the same stuff. They need to close it out, though.
I laugh every time I hear some know-it-all sport talk host say that Steph Curry is not going to go down as one of the greatest ball players that ever lived. They say he is not a conventional athlete. They say his physical makeup pales in comparison to Lebron, Kobe and Michael. He puts the ball in the basket more than any player in the league right now. That is just the truth. We are watching one of the greatest of all time.
Where does this accomplishment rank among the greatest sports accomplishments of all time?
