Stephen Curry is about to win his second consecutive NBA Most Valuable Player award. In its penultimate game on Monday, his team tied the all-time record for wins (72) in a season, equaling Michael Jordan’s 1995-96 Bulls’ record that many believed was as unassailable as Wilt’s 100 points.

Curry’s Warriors — and they are without question — are on a quest for their second consecutive NBA championship and to be considered among the greatest teams of all time along with those Bulls, Russell’s and Bird’s Celtics, West’s and Magic and Kareem’s Lakers and Duncan’s Spurs. Anyone could see why those teams were dominant by looking at their leader, superstars from adolescence and certainly by college.
