Kobe Bryant may have stolen the show tonight by dropping 60 points in the final game of his NBA career, but Steph Curry and the Warriors were also impressive in their last game of the year. They completed their historic season by beating the Grizzlies 125-104 to finish 73-9, and in the process, they broke the NBA record for most wins in a regular season, which was previously held by the 1995-96 Bulls who finished 72-10. They put themselves into the “Are they the best NBA team of all time?” category by doing what they did.

Debates will be had in the coming days, weeks, months, and years about where this season’s Warriors fall in the grand scheme of things, but for now, it’s hard to deny what they’ve accomplished this year. And after their game against the Grizzlies, several of the players from the 1995-96 Bulls teams reacted to the Warriors’ win on Twitter and congratulated Golden State for what they were able to do.

Scottie Pippen had this to say:

Knowing what it takes to win 72, I've got to tip my hat to the @warriors for getting to 73. Good luck to @SteveKerr & Co. in the playoffs!

Kobe might be taking center stage right now, but don’t lose sight of what this Warriors team just accomplished. Special.
