I liked the Warriors until they signed Durant. Now they have Boogie.

Cheaters. :)

There are definitely people who judge best franchise in NBA by championship counts. There's a good argument to be made that Celtics and Lakers are the best franchises in the NBA. The counter argument against that is both Celtics and Lakers have prolong period of non-competitive years. But nothing like the warriors. Prior to 2011, the warriors were the laughing stock of the NBA.

Then there are others who considers other factors like most Pros/commentators/ex players who would pick the Spurs. Because they won championships and were rarely non-competitive.

In baseball, there was " the Cardinal way" not because they won the most or are the most recent dynasty. They are viewed as the best run baseball franchise similarly to how the spurs are viewed in basketball world.

I don't agree that the most recent dynasty team = the " right way " to do it. There's a reason the warriors picked Kerr as their coach. He came from the Spurs system and learned from Pop. The warriors wanted to duplicate that.

If the sixers win next year's championship, does the sixer way become the right way to do it? " Ignore years and years of tanking and sugar coat it " the process" does not fool many people.

We are not talking about "best franchise in NBA history".   You are arguing about results and longevity whereas the "did it the right way" discussion is about process. 

Again, NE was pretty bad until Belichek go there.  Then they won a lot and arguably best franchise in history...even if they are not, what they have done under Belichek/Brady is arguably the best dynasties out there.  The fact as to whether the Patriots won or lose after this dynasty is irrelevant.

Warriors were bad for a long time then they got better and improved and are now have one of the best dynasties in NBA history.  It doesn't "negate" the terribleness of the prior years but it should not be diminished either.

Assuming they win again this year and check the 3 peat box, the warriors are probably pushing Bird's Celtics in best dynasties. But I would still put MJ's Chicago Bulls, Showtime Lakers, Spurs, and Shaq&Kobe Lakers above this GS dynasty.

None of them has the stain of being the best record setting 73 regular season team and ended up chocking in the playoffs  >:D

Oh i beg to differ.

Until somebody wins 74 games and lose the finals, the warriors will go down in history book as the best team that choked.

Go ahead and hold on to that...while the Warriors win 4 out of the last 5 championships.  Meanwhile, Lakers will be in shambles for the next few years with a diminishing and disinterested Lebron.

I feel Zubac is a better center than McGee and Chandler.

If the 76ers was able to trade Fultz to the Magic I think the Lakers should have traded Lonzo to a team.
(Fultz barely even played)

Of course you can trade him...it will just be at extremely low value...and Fultz doesn't have a crazy dad.

Playoff push or tanking mode.

“Tank for Zion!” (Their odds of getting Zion is not high compared to other teams, but the upcoming draft class suppose to be good)

Let’s say the Lakers make the playoffs. Their seed will be like 8 and I assume would face GS. GS would win most likely.

I think ever since the AD trade rumors. The Lakers have not been the same. Everything was so public and out there regarding the potential trade.
