Impressed by Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors' 8-0 start? Pff... that's nothing compared to some of the most historically dominant starts ever. This episode of the Over and Back Podcast looks at those best starts in NBA history with a deep dive into the team, the history surrounding the team, key players and figures and how their season ended. Teams include 1958 Boston Celtics in the second year of Bill Russell's career as well as the 2003 Dallas Mavericks, the best team of the Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash and Michael Finley triumvirate. The 15-0 Washington Captiols of 1949 and the 1994 Houston Rockets are covered in addition to the 72-10 Chicago Bulls led by Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman, the 1991 Portland Trailblazers, the historic 1970 New York Knicks and Boston's late 2000 "Big 3" (Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen).
