73 and 402

April 14, 2016

Regardless of how this team and its players stack up against the historically great teams, these guys got their 73 games and they did it in highly entertaining fashion. Curry himself got 402 three pointers in a single season, which is a record that will require a lot of dedication to beat. It is funny, and sort of fitting, too, that Kobe should score 60 points in his final game and basically upstage the Warriors record, turning the official NBA website into a Kobe shrine! Well, if you earned it, you earned it.

    Definitely a crazy day for the NBA. That being said, when I see those high points for a single player, It is always less impressive to me than a well working team (I still remember when Kobe scored over 80 points himself in a single game a while back).

    Still, one heck of a way to go out.

    Kobe is just something else. I remember when he ruptured his achilles tendon, he got up, shot his free throws and walked back to the locker room.

    Same thing here. He had no legs by the end of it, was basically shooting with upper body strength and the team was losing for most of the match, and somehow he got the win and the scoring digits to go along with it.

    As for the Warriors, congrats to them. They went for it, they did it, much better than if they had held off and played it safe for the playoffs.

    I wouldn’t want to be on their shoes. It’s championship or bust. The other Grizzlie’s game they won by one point, wasn’t pretty for them. I don’t think we have to talk about the Bulls in the same sentence when Matt Barnes scores 24 points on that game, and Lance Stephenson scored 22 on the last one.

    If I am the rest of the NBA, I am loving these playoffs because if you lose, you don’t really lose because they wrote off the entire league since the beginning. If you win, you get to take out the team that won 73, and above all winning a championship this year because of the higher stakes and ratings that are surely going to break some records, will be remembered for quite a while.

    I mean that’s just the perfect setup for a final championship for Duncan, a first championship for the Thunder, or Lebron bringing the title to Cleveland. Any other year it wouldn’t have mattered as much, but this year oh man.

    I’m a self-admitted Kobe hater, but I have to give props to his career. He went out like a straight g. Even though the Jazz went easy on him when they realized that the Rockets secured the last playoff spot, he did make sixty on fifty shots. Kobe definitely left it all on the court.
