North America's unlucky record setters


06-20-2016 15:50 BJT

And with their loss in the NBA Finals, this year's Golden State Warriors join the unfortunate fraternity of teams that set the record for most regular season wins in North America's four biggest sports leagues, but then failed to win a championship.

G-State went 73-9 over the regular season, breaking the mark of 72-10 set by the Chicago Bulls 20 years ago. Michael Jordan and company ended that campaign with a title, but not the Dubs.

The NFL record is the perfect 16-0 mark by the New England Patriots in 2007. Tom Brady and his crew were then upset by the New York Giants in Super Bowl 43.

The MLB record of 116 wins is shared by the 2001 Seattle Mariners and 1906 Chicago Cubs. The M's had their run stopped by the New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series. And 95 years earlier, the Cubs saw their campaign ended by their rivals, the Chicago White Sox, in the third World Series ever played.

The NHL record is held by the 1995-96 Detroit Red Wings - who tallied 62 wins, 7 draws, and 13 losses - but were buried by the Colorado Avalanche in the Western Conference Final.
