The Warriors did it. 73 wins, a new single–season record. Now it's time to appreciate what Stephen Curry, Steve Kerr and the rest of the defending NBA champions have accomplished. 

The debate over the Warriors' place in NBA history can't fully commence until the end of the postseason, but in the meantime we decided to rank Golden State's 73 best plays of the 2015–16 season. 

It wasn't easy to narrow down the list to just 73 plays, and it was even more difficult to rank. But we did it anyway. Let the ranking begin.
