Right place, wrong time.
One of professional basketball’s truisms that gets tossed around a lot is that the late-90’s Stockton-Malone led Utah Jazz team was one the greatest in NBA history, but that it was cursed to exist in the era of the MJ Bulls version 2.0.
Here is another b-ball truism from today to go alongside it:
This year, the Spurs are on pace to win 70 of 82 games, which by all rights should put it among history’s greatest squads.
But no one is going to remember them for that, because the Golden State Warriors are on pace to win 75.
