At some point players are going to want to get paid (rightly so) and leaving money on the table to win another championship will lose its attractiveness. The NBA is a cash cow at the moment and some of those guys are grossly underpaid.

I can see Klay and Draymond leave when their contract is up for a max contract and to be hopefully leaders of their own teams. This team won't stay together for that long especially if they somehow lose next year or the following year.

It really means you came on every thread you could relate in SOME WAY to bash Lebron.
Has zero to do with Lebron.

The thread is are the warriors a dynasty, not what can Lebron do to beat them or save his legacy.

There's no need to bash Lebron,he's an all time great !

It's just the Warriors are a force to be reckoned with and they are unfortunately standing in LeBron way if he wants another title.

Only if he joins a 73 win team...especially if it was team that you lead 3-1 before giving it away in the 4th quarter....legacy gone for sure joining a team that you choked against.

Well Lebron offers a valid counterpoint to how the Warriors are built. Lebron views success through being surrounded by individually great players, both in Miami and now Cleveland, while at the same time diminishing the role of coaching and management. The Warriors, like the Spurs before them, have built a system from the top down for sustained success. There are cornerstone players, but new players who come into the organization will be integrated into the system and be allowed to shine in their given roles. Lebron believes coaching and management are an impediment to players and their agents, who he thinks should have all the say in the league. He left Miami because he didn't want to have to answer to Riley, but Miami is in better shape now than Cleveland will be when he leaves them (whenever that is). Riley has a system in Miami, while Gilbert throws money around in desperation after getting lucky with several draft picks.

While the Warriors have had the greatest 3-year run in NBA history, they've neither 3-peated or gone back-to-back. Do I think it's within the realm of possibility that they get there? Sure, but as of right now, when has winning 2/3 made anyone a dynasty? And the year in this run that they lost, was the biggest team choke job in NBA history...

The 2011-2013 Miami Heat won 2/3 (ended up 2/4). The 2008-10 Los Angeles Lakers went 2/3 (ended up 2/3). Neither of those teams are considered dynasties. The 2009 Lakers and 2013 Heat are considered Top 15 All-Time teams. Neither of the other squads ('08/'10 Lakers; '11/'12/'14 Heat) are considered Top 40 teams, but those franchises did the same exact thing this Warriors team has done so far--won 2/3, so there is an opposing argument to be made that this Warriors team has underachieved...

So let me ask everyone a question: if this Warriors team never wins another championship this era (there are two years remaining in the 2010s decade), if two championships is the extent of their run, are we going to retroactively view this as a dynasty? I don't think it's likely that they won't win another one in the next two years, but it's definitely possible, at least as possible as losing a 3-1 Finals lead in a 73-win season that none of us predicted would happen either...

At this point, the Warriors are tied with the Heat for most championships in the 2010s. Odds are, they win at least one more, but they aren't even the undisputed champions of this era yet...

They win 3 in 4, or 3 in 5 like the '00s Spurs, I'll agree they are a dynasty. But two championships has never made anybody a dynasty...
That's a good point.

It's not called a dynasty until a team wins 3 titles in a row. Like you said they have yet to repeat or win three titles in a row like the dynasty teams below

1991-1993 Bulls
1996-1998 Bulls
2000-2002 Lakers
