Throughout this entire journey watching the Warriors play ball this season, I still remain in awe of this team. I still am wrapping my head around the fact that the Warriors won the championship last year. All those years being a fan of a team that couldn’t do anything right is still lingering on. I keep thinking that my team was incapable of winning.
But they won last year. They won it all. Now this year, not only are they even playing better, but they are setting records. The big record is within their reach. But tying the 1995-96 Bulls with 72 wins is a season is still mind-blowing. That Bulls team was so good. They had Michael, Scottie, Dennis and coach Phil. That team was amazing and untouchable.
I look at this Warriors team and I can see that in 10 years time, we could be comparing some of the players to the legends of the game. Right now, Stephen Curry already has established himself as a once-in-a-lifetime talent. This team, winning 72 games puts them in the discussion of greatest teams of all time.
All they have to do is win on Wednesday at home against Memphis. Then, they have to win the NBA Finals once again.
All that is in my head right now. So much to process. So much to digest. So much to read and watch.
But I want to give myself the moment to just remember the hard times the team has been through. The hard times the fans have endured.
We are blessed to have this team playing this well. Who would have imagined this could happen? Nobody. So for right now, let me just sit and celebrate the Warriors and the blessing we have to see them play like this.
What a time to be alive!
