This week on the Over and Back Classic NBA Podcast, Jason and Rich look back at the 2018 NBA Finals and what history was made including asking if the Golden State Warriors are now a dynasty.
We try to come to a definitive definition of what a dynasty is in basketball, what teams of recent and past vintage would be classified as dynasties, whether or not the Spurs during the Tim Duncan-era could be considered a dynasty, what to make of the early 2000s Kobe/Shaq Los Angeles Lakers and if they had enough longevity to be a dynasty and of course more discussions on where a third title in four years places the Golden State Warriors.
We also delve into LeBron James as a non-team specific dynasty of his own, LeBron's unfortunate entry into the club of Most NBA Finals losses as he approaches Jerry West, Elgin Baylor and others for the top spot. We look at what people would say about the Golden State Warriors had they not lost a 3-1 lead in the 2016 NBA Finals, if Kevin Durant and Steph Curry can be considered Top 25 players at this point in their careers and if Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Kevin Love will eventually make it to the Basketball Hall of Fame.
Additional topics include a discussion on the long-term implications of Kevin Durant signing with the Golden State Warriors, whether the decision was lame or not and how he compares to LeBron James moving to Miami, we look at if the Warriors are boring, re-doing the NBA Playoff structure and seeding the entire league 1-16, if it makes that Steph Curry doesn't have an NBA Finals MVP award and last but not least: are the Golden State Warriors bad for the NBA?
