76 Raiders?

2016 Raiders?

post #25023 of 27206

lol. could be!

 

i'd say since the warriors haven't lost to any team more than once this season injury would play much more of a role than a mismatch if they got upset in the postseason.  obviously the nba has been trending towards the 3 pointer pretty consistently over the years but it will be interesting to see if in say 5 years the 3 ball becomes the premise of a league wide offense.

 

then maybe the dominant center will make a return?

Nobody cares since they didn't win the Super Bowl.

They were scrubs as far as I'm concerned

Dem Bears were certainly one of the most dominant teams I've ever seen as well, but there obviously have been decades of teams I've never seen outside of brief highlight films and the like.

I was too young to appreciate the Steelers in the 70's, but I'm sure the Steel Curtain was as formidable as any other great team. I stopped watching football in the late 90's, so I missed all the Pats dominance.

The only knock on the warriors record, assuming they get it, is that their losses were almost all to weak teams.

I thought this was a cool article - besides Kobe, only 10 other pro athletes played 20+ years with the same team

I'd argue that makes it more impressive. They get up for the big games, and had a few absolute stinkers. They happen -- back to back, 4 games in 5 nights, long road trips. But they won almost every close game (point differential would suggest around ~67 wins), and they won against all the top teams.

RFX jumped wagons, too. Gotta give Jet credit for being a Laker fan even though they SUCK.

I have no local affinities to an NBA Team. My loyalties are more towards Players.

 

Big Jordan/Bulls Fan in the 90ies. Brought me to the NBA.

 

After that, my interest was more towards the international stars.

 

Of course, big Dirk-Fan, but actually not so much of a Mavs-Fan.

Always loved Manu, have big respect for the Spurs. But I preferred Hakeem during the battles against theAdmiral.

 

Became big Rockets-Fan when Yao entered the league. Really loved those Rockets-Team of the first Millenium-Decade. But after they traded Scola and they started this Harden-Howard era, somehow I couldn't bring myself to like this Team. I couldn't care less how they perform. Well, I still follow them if, but not very intensiv. A soft spot remains. But since a Playoff appearance will come on the cost of the Jazz which I really dislike because of their Play Off battles with the Rockets, I'll root for the Rockets again!

 

 

How cool would a First Round match between Houston and Golden State be? Rematch of lst years WCF!

I jumped on the Warriors bandwagon last game

Great to see him still around. I think I caught a glimpse of Elfrid Payton.




Shows it again this year...

I still love e.b.o.y.!

And winning a series, even a best-of-seven like the NBA is susceptible to flukes like an opponent's injuries or weird matchups in a way that a regular season record is not.
In any case, no one has the option to trade one for the other and I am not surprised the Warriors went all out down the stretch. Resting your best players doesn't guaranty you anything - you might miss the record and then they can still sprain an ankle in the finals.


Allow me this anti-jynx.

 

It's highly possible a rematch of the 2015s WCF will occur in the 1st rd. Another Memory of that season (or was it the season before?) is Pat Beverly hurting Russel Westbrooks and positively ending OKCs run for a title. So since P-Bev (who was injured in last years WCF) will be guarding Steph...

 

Don't blame me when it happens.
