“Watching the Warriors feels like watching a team that will always win. Watching the Spurs feels like watching a team that can never lose.”

“It’s not just Golden State’s dominance but the confident insouciance with which they question the metaphysics of basketball that makes it feel like they are somehow breaking the game.”
By virtually any measure available, the Golden State Warriors are by far the best passing team in the NBA–and it’s not just because of Steph Curry.
