It is accomplished!
The Golden State Warriors have made history once again! They finish the regular season 73-9, beating the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls for best regular season record of all time.
What a joy it has been to see the Warriors pursue this goal. I remember early on this season when this was first brought up. I didn’t think it was possible. But by the All-Star break, I realized that at this pace if the team stayed relatively healthy, they could do it. The Warriors have played so well against the league’s best teams and when they needed the big play, they got it from different players.
Watching this final game reminded me that we are watching a once-in-a-lifetime team doing amazing things. Stephen Curry just eclipsed 400 made 3-pointers for the season in the game. Nobody has even sniffed 300 but Curry himself. This is a team of great basketball, unselfish play and just beautiful poetry.
Wow! That’s 73 wins. Unthinkable when the Bulls set the record 20 years ago. Now today, that record belongs to the Warriors. The championship is still the major goal. But setting this record is pretty special. This team is special. This is a great day for the NBA. We are lucky to witness this day.
And this is also a great day for Crying Jordan memes.
