The Golden State Warriors have had a record-breaking campaign this season and have their sights firmly set on regaining their title as the first round of playoff action approaches.
But, whatever happens in the postseason, season ticket holders in the Bay have seen enough to be excited about next season. Well, at least 99.5 percent of them, at least.
The Warriors released figures of their season ticket renewals for next year and in keeping with their campaign so far, they set a new record.

Their renewal figures are the highest in franchise history and mark the fourth consecutive year that over 90 percent of their season ticket holders are coming back for the next campaign.
The success of the Warriors in recent years has sent their popularity through the roof. Although, during their darker days, they still had one of the most passionate fanbases in the league. The four-time champions have a priority waiting list of over 26,000 people.
But who wouldn't want to watch the likes of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green in full flow? The Dubs have been nothing short of remarkable this season as they achieved the best record over 82 games in history.
Their final day demolition of the Memphis Grizzlies, where Curry dropped ten threes to take his season tally past the 400 mark, saw the Warriors eclipse the record set by Michael Jordan and Co. in the 1995-96 season.
Warriors fans will see their team back in action as they welcome the Houston Rockets to the Oracle Arena for the first game of their first-round playoff clash.
In a repeat of the 2014-15 Western Conference Finals, the Dubs will go head-to-head against the franchise led by James Harden.
While Golden State have gone forward, it seems the Rockets have regressed from 12 months ago and many people believe there is no hope for the eight seed.
However, with a player like Harden within their ranks, there is always a threat, and the likes of Thompson and Curry will have to be at their best to overcome the Beard.
RINGS OR RECORDS
Having broken the Bulls' regular season mark, the next aim for the franchise is to emulate their '95-'96 success by winning it all. If they fail to lift the Larry O'Brien trophy come June, there will always be an asterisk against their achievements.
The Warriors are the overriding favourites with the bookies and experts but in playoff basketball anything is possible. With the San Antonio Spurs and a LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers lurking the in the shadows, it will be a tough run for the Dubs.
