The Warriors are in the NBA Finals for the sixth time in just eight years, which is an incredible achievement in itself. Golden State’s resurgence in 2022 is a reminder that the dynasty is far from being over, despite missing the NBA Playoffs in each of the previous two seasons.
The Warriors’ combination of Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson will seek to capture their fourth title in the last eight seasons, joining an elite group of athletes with four or more rings, after winning three of them in five trips in the NBA Finals between 2014 and 2018.
To put things into more context, most NBA teams don’t even have 4 championship rings. This also tells us a little something about the Celtics and Lakers dominance in the NBA. It’s nice to see the Warriors challenging for more dominance in the overall NBA history.
The Warriors’ success as a team goes beyond Curry, Green, and Thompson, with players like Joe Fulks, Paul Arizin, Rick Barry, and Jamaal Wilkes helping them win titles in three different decades.
