It’s been quite a ride for the Golden State Warriors. Two years ago they climbed to the pinnacle of the basketball world, bringing an NBA title to the Bay Area and Dub Nation. A year later, they made history, winning 73 regular season games and storming all the way to the NBA Finals once again.
And then, up 3-1, one win away from repeating, the champs slowly began to slip. Game by game, they watched their fortunes change. From the highest summit to the crushing low of watching a 3-1 NBA Finals lead evaporate, the Warriors and their fans had certainly felt a range of emotions.
And then just a few weeks after losing the Finals, the Warriors signed Kevin Durant. The rest, as they say, is history. And while the 2017 Golden State Warriors did not quite match their 73 win season the year before, they are now, once again, the champions of the NBA. And they have achieved some history of their own: a near-perfect postseason. 16-0 and their second title in three years is a pretty good way to exorcise the demons of last year.
And Dub Nation is celebrating. Below, check out a heat map video breakdown of how Warriors sales across Fanatics platforms after the historic win.
