After posting a sensational 72-10 record at the end of the 1995/96 NBA season, it was said that no team would ever top the Chicago Bulls’ dominant record. However, 20 years later, Steve Kerr (who played on that Chicago squad) guided his Golden State Warriors team to an incredible 73-9 record with some breathtaking basketball. The Warriors have proven people wrong by besting this record, but there are many other sport records out there which are unlikely to ever be toppled. Records are meant to be broken, but it is hard to see anyone shattering these 10 any time soon.
10. Bryon Nelson – 11 PGA Tour Wins in a Row
In today’s golf game, competition is fierce. That makes winning two or three tournaments consecutively some feat. We have witnessed many astonishing golfers over the years dominate the game for extended periods of time, but none quite like Bryon Nelson. While he may not be as famous as Tiger Woods or Jack Nicklaus, Nelson is one of the all-time greats and sixth on the PGA tour wins list with 52. Nelson is best remembered for an utterly astonishing year in 1945 (retiring a year later), where he won a total of 18 tournaments — 11 of them in a row, which is utterly astonishing and one record that will never be beaten. Tiger Woods follows with seven, which is still incredible. Woods would call Nelson’s brilliant year “one of the greatest years in the history of sport.”
