16 17 33 44 | 1971-72 Lakers 33 Game Winning Streak, In Light of Warriors and 76ers Winning & Losing Streaks
44 will be central in what is written in the following breakdown of the current Warriors winning streak. Notice Jerry West is shown wearing #44, a member of the 33-win streak Lakers.
Jerry = 1+5+9+9+7 = 31
West = 5+5+1+2 = 13
Jerry West = 44
Notice the Warriors set the win streak record to start the season, 16-0, against the Lakers, who had a 33-game winning streak, in the season the Warriors became the Golden State Warriors, 44-years ago. In 2015, they defeated the Cavs in the NBA Finals, who were in their 44th-year of existence.
King James = 44 (LeBron James nickname, who returned to Cleveland for their 44th season)
44 has been a very important number in pro sports in recent history, as I have documented on this blog.
Sixteen = 1+9+6+2+5+5+5 = 33
Also, the 76ers became 0-17 exactly 76-days after Moses Malone died, who died 17-days after Daryl Dawkins.
In the offseason, Darryl Dawkins died on August 27 and Moses Malone died on September 13, 17-days apart. We'll see what happens for both of these teams in their 18th game.
The Warriors play the Kings tonight.
Kings = 2+9+5+7+1 = 24/33
The 76ers play at the Grizzlies tomorrow.
Grizzlies = 7+9+9+8+8+3+9+5+1 = 59/68
