The Spurs being considered a dynasty is a joke. 3 titles in 5 years is great but not a dynasty and trying to extend it to 4 in 9 years to use that as a dynasty is a joke too. In between the first and second title the team changed a lot and another team won 3 straight titles in that time. How can you be a dynasty if there was a borderline dynasty between your first and second title?

The spurs are not a dynasty in my eyes. Yes they won 3 titles in 5 years, but never back to back and in my opinion if you can't even repeat 1 time that isn't a true dynasty

Why would it be a Kobe dynasty? He wasn't the best player in the previous 3.

other than duncan u mean. i agree with your analysis

in any case i don't understand why fans are so hung up on the term 'Dynasty'. even if the spurs are considered Dynasty by some text book definition, i don't see them being remembered as well as kobe-shaq Lakers (who ONLY won 3 rings) or MJ Bulls. u want your legacy to be remembered by fans and non-fans, not how you can fit into a Dynasty definition

They're too boring to be considered a dynasty, they have no real personality



The Bulls had MJ and Rodman, The Superlakers had Shaq and Kobe!

What personality do the spurs have? The calm demeanor of Tim Duncan or the calm demeanor of Tony Parker? Maybe the calm demeanor of some of their other players could be construed as interesting

Agreed. The Spurs are an overrated team in recent years and my points are listed below:

First of all, I don't need to explain what happened to the title they won in 1999 since everyone knows it was considerably overrated.

Second, the Spurs were facing a Lakers team with severely injured Shaq in 2nd round in 2003. Besides, Dirk Nowitzki was horribly injured as well in WCF so the Mavs lost all their home games to the Spurs(Ironically the Mavs did win 2 road games).

At last, it was surely lucky for the Spues to won the title in 2007 since the Mavs(Who were capable of beating the Spurs in 5) were defeated by GS and the Suns had to play game 5 w/o Amare and Diaw. On the other hands, who knows what might happen in NBA final if the Pistons weren't upset by the Cavs?

In a word, the Spurs deserved to win merely a title in 2005. Their situation is just the same as the Houston Rockets in 1994-1995. But man, the Rockets at least repeated once, didn't they?

The so called 'dynasty' was 2000 - 2002 and it was Shaq's dynasty.

Or maybe 1994-2007 should be the "Kerr and Horry Dynasty"

Why do people believe that you have to repeat to be a dynasty? Before the '88 Lakers, no team had repeated in about 20 years. Does that mean the '80's Celtics aren't a dynasty?
