Watched us run through the Western Conference in 2001 and destroy Popovich's Spurs team in their prime, and didn't complain.
Like I said, we can go all we want about "Celtics and Lakers never met three times" but there hasn't been parity in the NBA since the league almost died because of it. If not for the lack of parity in the 80s because of Bird and Magic the NBA would have died. Period. Point Blank.
The league thrives on parity and extended periods of dominance.
Like I said, with all the other whistles and bells about 'back in the day' and stuff thrown out the window.
In the 80s Lakers or Celtics were in how many finals again?
And from 1999-2017 how many Finals didn't involve San Antonio, Los Angeles, or a LeBron Super Team?
On top of that from 1999-2017 how many teams that weren't the Spurs, Lakers or a LeBron Super Team won the championship?
That's 18 years, that's part of this years draft class not even being born yet. Put things into perspective.
LeBron Super Teams have been in the Finals in the East for the last 7 seasons and if not for injuries the Celtics Super Team may have been in 3-4 of them. Just because the West has a dynasty of a team right now is not the time to cry "Foul". if Garnett had never gotten injured the Lakers and the Celtics would have very likely met in the Finals 3 times from 2007-2010.
This Finals marks the 11th in a row with either LeBron or Kobe. And 15 of the last 18 NBA Finals have involved Kobe or LeBron. Again.. puts things into perspective a bit. ALL of the last 19 have involved Duncan, Kobe or LeBron.
If you find the lack of parity boring, then simply don't watch and find something more entertaining to do/watch invest your efforts into that are more fulfilling to what you want out of sports.
