The Warriors will go undefeated

The Golden State Warriors have nine losses right now. It took them a full season to reach that mark last year. It was truly one of the greatest things we’ll ever get to witness happen in sports.

Unfortunately, the Warriors couldn’t close out the Cleveland Cavaliers and they fell short of the real prize. They couldn’t secure their second straight championship and many blamed the record. While winning 73 didn’t have any actual impact on the freak injuries to Curry and Andrew Bogut, they would have traded those wins for a title.

Golden State has made it clear that they aren’t chasing any records this year. They care more about the process rather than the results. June is what’s most important for these guys.

The Warriors still win a lot of games because they’re just better than everyone else. They have four All-NBA players in their primes and one of the best benches in the league. They have too much talent on most nights.

Golden State is going to win their next 26 games in a row. This seems like it’s nearly impossible, but last year’s Durant-less team won 24 in a row to start the season. A better team can match and exceed that mark.

In winning all of those consecutive contests, they’ll tie last year’s record. They will have the undisputed best team ever. It would be unprecedented history in any sport.

They’ll tie the record with relative ease. They’re not going to chase the record, it will just happen. Even on nights where Steve Kerr decides to rest players, they’ll still leave arenas with W’s.

With another 73 wins in their back pocket, the Warriors will complete the mission. They’ll rattle off another 16 in  a row and host a parade for the greatest sports team ever.
