Warriors' NBA Finals Flameout Turns 73 Wins into Bitter What-If Question

bleacherreport.com — One way or another, winning an unprecedented 73 games was going to define this season for the Golden State Warriors . Either it would be the brightest jewel in their championship crown or it would be an all-too-expensive energy-sucking bauble.

ESPN The Magazine: The Whistle
