I don't think that matters. People will forget that and will only remember the wins.

Lebron has about three years left in the NBA and I don't see anymore NBA title wins if Durant stays with Golden state.

Three years at his current level maybe, and I agree it may be iffy unless Kyrie continues to play out of his mind in the postseason and they somehow can afford a better bench (vet minimum ring chasers like Jefferson).
Lebron will lose a lot of respect if he leaves Cleveland again in a half-assed ring chase attempt. He'll lose all the good karma/marketing built up from returning to his home town and earning them a championship. I think the main factor will be all those in his ear telling him what he "needs to do". He already cemented his legacy in 2016...no need to go out like a chump just because his wife wants to stay in LA without any Ohio commutes.

It's a business first now and personal achievement may be second. He did what he said he was going to do. I see no problem with him moving on to the Clippers or Lakers.

Instead of going to LA perhaps he will just retire. He'll be 34-35 coming off what 8 or 9 long seasons to the finals.

What's the point in going to LA to a worse team? Yes it's a business and he's created a lot around Akron and being the prodigal son who returned home to win them a championship.

Going to a team that is worst while approaching the age of 35 with two years left in his career at the most.

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
So the 2000 Spurs aren't a Dynasty ?

The Showtime Lakers never won 3 in a row but they're probably the best Dynasty of all time....

15 - 17 Warrior's had the greatest run ever so that has to at least hold some weight in the upper echelon of great teams.

No they are not since they were never able to repeat after winning the title.

1999 Champions and lost next season.

2003 champions and lost next season.

2005 champions and lost next season

2007 champions and lost next season.

2014 champions and lost next season


No team is considered a dynasty who couldn't three-peat. The last dynasty in the NBA was the 2000-2002 LA Lakers since they won the title three years in a row.

The showtime Lakers wasn't a dynasty just one of the best teams of the 1980's. They came close to being a dynasty in 1989 but injuries hurt their chances in the NBA Finals when they lost to the Pistons.
