links-of-the-week-warriors

On Wednesday night, the Golden State Warriors won their 73rd game of the season, breaking the Chicago Bulls’ 1995-96 season record of 72 wins. That’s insane.

I’m a visual person. I love pictures - the pretty, interesting, unique, edgy, and beautiful pictures that tell a story and make you feel stuff; the type of pictures that make you pause when you spot them.
