The Warriors are 15-0, matching the best-ever start by an NBA team.

Golden State can break its tie with the 1948-49 Washington Capitols and 1993-94 Houston Rockets tomorrow against the 2-11 Lakers.

Can the Lakers actually stop this train?

Kobe Bryant, via Baxter Holmes of ESPN:

“I’ve seen stranger things happen,” Bryant said Sunday after his team’s 107-93 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers at Staples Center here. “We’ve been playing like s—. We might go up there and we might play like gangbusters up there. You never know. “

The Lakers have been playing like s—, because they’re a s—ty team. Their output is not an aberration.

But it’s a long season. S—ty teams can beat good, even historically great, teams.

The the 48-49 Capitols lost their 16th game by 16 to the Indianapolis Jets, who entered 3-13. It happens.

So, Kobe is right. Stranger things have happened.

But not many.
