A lot of attention has been paid to the Golden State Warriors this year.
They are the reigning NBA champions but they haven’t looked like it, suffering a slew of shocking defeats on the road and sliding down to sixth place in their conference.
But that doesn’t change the fact that this team is one of the most dominant dynasties in NBA history.
As pointed out by WarriorsMuse, the Denver Nuggets are the only Western Conference team to sweep Stephen Curry in the season during the Steve Kerr era.

Last time this happened was in 2013-14 (Spurs).

The Nuggets’ latest defeat of the Warriors came on Sunday night when they took them down 112-110 in yet another painful loss for Golden State.
Their previous victories were in February and October.
Does this record reflect better on the Nuggets or the Warriors?
It’s very impressive to see Denver pull off what so few other teams have.
At the same time, it’s remarkable that Golden State holds such a record.
It just goes to show that no matter how many problems they are currently having, the Warriors are still a team unlike any other and have been so for a long time.
The Steve Kerr era began back in the 2014-15 season.
Since then, he has led the team to four championship victories and two more appearances in the Finals.
There is no doubt that this is the most important period in Warriors history.
But how much longer will it last?
Their current slate of problems has people wondering if the Steve Kerr era is coming to an end and if the Warriors’ days of being the league’s top dogs are over.
