72-10 > 73-9

72-10 > 73-9

"Your success took a shot at you. What are you gonna do now? How you gonna kill it? You gonna become unsuccessful?"

I feel like the little girl in the car when Boosie got out of prison, "I told y'all niggas, I told y'all niggas!"

The 2016 Golden State Warrior's had the most successful run in NBA history during the regular season. While this was going on people were already closing the book on the 1996 Chicago Bulls legacy. I for one knew better not to ever, EVER go against the legend of one Michael Jeffrey Jordan.

Golden State pissed away their chance at sports immorality during the NBA Finals. In fact if it wasn't for OKCs inability to close out we would have seen it much sooner. Greatness is never down in a series 3-1 and greatness doesn't blow a series up 3-1. Greatness doesn't shy away from the moment it revels in it. Golden State now shares their fate with the New England Patriots. Sure you will remember 73-9, or Steph jacking up trey's and splashing them from mid court but it was all for nothing.

The UnstoppaBULLS ran through their competition and finished the Sonics in 6. Not only did MJ have to shake off the cobwebs from a 17 game season the year before and witnessing his former teammate Horace Grant being carried out on Shaq's shoulders. He had to prove to the entire league he wasn't passed his prime. To prove he was not to be fucked with he won the regular season and Finals MVP in the process. That's how you show up Steph Curry! Juanita ain't have no Twitter!

Sorry...my point is people are too quick to want to change history. Yes records are meant to be broken, but in the end immorality is beyond singular achievements. The Warriors will be back in some form, not wanting to break their own record but to once again be champions. Ticker tape parades and champagne are for closers! It don't mean a thing without that ring!
