G – Golden State Warriors
It’s been a year of breaking and setting records for the Warriors. They set a new NBA record by winning their first four games by a total margin of 100 points. After beating the Toronto Raptors, their 21–0 record to start a season set a new record among all professional sports teams. Golden State’s 131–123 win improved their road record to 13–0, the best such start to a season in NBA history.
One of the primary reasons for their success is the sheer brilliance of a certain Stephen Curry, who bagged the MVP award.
H – Hamilton
After a slow European start for the British Formula One star, Lewis Hamilton went onto win the British Grand Prix for the second time in a row and third time overall in 2015 and also surpassed Jackie Stewart’s 45-year-old record of laps led in eighteen consecutive Grands Prix.
In a year of total dominance from Mercedes, Hamilton led the charge with teammate Nico Rosberg never far behind. The Brit won the US Grand Prix and secured his 3rd Drivers’ Championship and became the Formula One World Champion yet again, thus emulating the success of his idol, Ayrton Senna.
