12. 2014-15 Golden State Warriors
One season later, the Warriors would break the overall record for most games won in an NBA regular season. However, in 14-15, the Warriors actually won the championship. When you combine that with an overall record of 67-15, we know what we think is better. This was a tremendous chapter in the Northern California franchise’s book.
Stephen Curry won the NBA MVP award, the first Warriors star to win that since Wilt Chamberlain in 1959-60. He also broke his own record for most three-pointers in a season. Meanwhile, Steve Kerr broke the record for most wins as a rookie coach. Overall, it was a truly exceptional season.
