Basketball fanatics love arguing over the best NBA team of all time, with popular opinion immediately hedging toward the Chicago Bulls. But was it their 1995-1996 season or 1996-1997? Of course, during the ensuing back-and-forth someone always suggests the 1985-1986 Boston Celtics, so another counters with the 2008-2009 Los Angeles Lakers. But we’re throwing out one team that’s above all the chatter: the Golden State Warriors.
A threat from anywhere in the court—check. An MVP escape artist armed with the sweetest shot in the game—check. A team talent for making the rest of the league look like an amateur contest—check. Rep the Golden State, and keep watch on those record books, ‘cause the Warriors are coming for them.
