50 Years On, The 1972 Miami Dolphins’ Undefeated Season Remains Undefeated | Miami Dolphins

+

IIt’s been 50 years since the 1972 Miami Dolphins became the first (and, so far, only) team in NFL history to win every game in a season. For many who played on the Dolphins that year, it’s hard to reconcile the passage of time with the immediacy of the memories. "Fifty years is a long time ago," laughs Dick Anderson, the Dolphins’ Pro Bowl safety in 1972, but it "feels like it was yesterday." It’s useful to quickly clarify one aspect of the ’72 Dolphins’ achievement – ​​for a finicky reason, the phrase "perfect season" (rather than "undefeated season") is often used to describe the campaign. Although ties are uncommon in today’s game, they were once relatively prevalent. In the 1920s, four teams technically finished their seasons ‘undefeated,’ although each of them finished with at least one draw. As such, the Dolphins’ lossless and tieless 1972 season remains unique in NFL history. The league itself has acknowledged the team’s peerless performance – the ’72 Dolphins were judged to be the greatest team in NFL history during the league’s centennial celebrations in 2019.

+

We’re getting closer to the start of the season and with only two more pre-season games remaining, your Rockets get an interesting challenge tonight against the Miami Heat. The Rockets will be short-handed tonight as Coach Stephen Silas and Eric Gordon will be out due to COVID protocols. Jabari Smith Jr. is also on the shelf with a sprained ankle, but the Rockets get some reinforcement back in Alperen Şengün, who missed last Friday’s game against the Toronto Raptors due to a dental procedure. For Miami, they are expected to sit many of their starters once again. Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo and Kyle Lowry are among those you might notice in street clothes tonight. The Heat are optimistic that former Rocket, Victor Oladipo, makes his return tonight so that will be another thing to watch for after his short stint in Houston.

What the Houston Rockets, Orlando Magic and Detroit Pistons should do with the No. 1 pick in the 2022 NBA draft

+

The Houston Rockets, Orlando Magic and Detroit Pistons each have 14% odds to obtain that No. 1 pick, and it stands to reason that each is in the process of planning for that scenario and others of a less favorable variety.

What we are working with at GSOM

+

Context: Someone said that Steph Curry was a transcendent player. I replied saying that though he is great during this era, calling him transcendent implies that he would be great during any era of the NBA. which I disagreed with and said that he would have been considered more of a sharp shooter during most era's of the NBA and most likely manhandled during the 70's, 80's and 90's, the only other time where he might have been considered great was during the early stages of the NBA. This was almost exactly the original quote, without attacking anyone, just that I disagreed that he was transcendent. My comment was deleted once, and so I repeated it as much as I could remember after recognizing it had been deleted. It was deleted again. My last response was similar but with the last little tidbit added. Thoughts? Was I in the wrong?
