Thread Starter 

So I just got a letter from the IRS telling me I didn't file my claim. Several phone calls, a beer, and a stress headache later, I find out they sent the letter in error. I'd be mad at all the stress their mistake caused me if it weren't for the fact that it was all a mistake made me so relieved. They really covered their bases there.

Spurs may be the least dynastic of the dynasties (60s Celts, 87-98 Bulls, Showtime Lakers), but accepting them as a dynasty, they need to be included in a debate about the most dominant, especially considering league strength (which probably best supports the Bulls) and regular season dominance. But I can also understand the argument that they aren't a dynasty, as there isn't a clear core. You have Pop and TD there for all championships, and two others that were there for the other four.

@noodles , for your own sake, take some time away from all things SF and wait to return until you can participate without repeatedly dredging up this fiasco.  Right now, you are your own worst enemy.

I agree 100℅

No you don;t.

Spurs have a greater average level of play, but the greatness is less peaked, I would say.

Can we rename it to something other than The Grad Lounge, though? I really do not like that title.

Alternate suggestions: Literally anything else

The GNAT Refugee Thread?

Haha. That meets my criteria so consider it to have one vote.

On the subject of dynasties: I would define a dynasty as a sustained high level of play lasting distinctly longer than the average success/failure cycle for comparable teams in which several championships are earned. This certainly puts the Spurs on the level of a dynasty, however certainly not at the meteoric levels of success of some others. On the other hand, what they have been able to accomplish is in some ways more remarkable. Considering how long their core players have been able to sustain success it seems to me somewhat more rare than, say, 4 championships in 6 years or so. Consider it something like the NE Patriots.

College basketball vs. NBA is almost an analog for anthopologists vs. engineers.  Do you care more about the game as a ritual thickly enmeshed in a culture, or the game as a precision performance bound largely by its own logic? 

 

For me, college all the way, warts and all.

@TweedyProf was the one that came up with the snooty title and disastrous first post. But I agree, the name needs to be changed into something more inclusive

So true. Especially since I like anthropologists more than engineers. No hate.

Re: Spurs

I still saying winning 3 in 5 years in the free agency age in a sport qualifies you to be called a dynasty.

I understand what people are saying about a core of players but to me it's also more impressive to do it without a strong core like MJ, Pippen, and Grant. That means you have some pretty sick role players and great coaching.
