Keep This In Mind…

Let this meme sync in for a minute…

Keep this in mind when dismissing great players who didn’t have the fortune of winning a championship…

Keep this in mind when criticizing those who lose in the Finals (as if it’s not hard enough to get there to begin with)…

Keep this in mind when criticizing players for not remaining loyal to an organization…

Keep this in mind when complaining about the lack of competition, and great players going to play other great players…

Keep this in mind when complaining about “super teams”. It’s always been “super teams” running the NBA for the most part. You know…once referred to as “dynasties” (see Celtics and Lakers who combine for 33 of the 70 championships)…

Keep this in mind, the only decade of NBA basketball where there was no repeat champion was the 1970’s…

Keep this in mind, since the 1979-80 season (when Bird and Magic arrived), 11 of those 17 franchises have won titles, with 7 of those franchises being first time winners when they won (Pistons, Bulls, Rockets, Spurs, Heat, Mavs, and Cavs), 2 of those 7 with only title win (Mavs and Cavs again)…that’s 11 in a span of 37 seasons. Parity you say??? 

Keep this in mind, the NBA Playoffs is not a one game scenario. You now have to beat a team 4 times in a 2-week span to advance to the next round; also keep in mind that you have to do this 4 separate occasions to be crowned champion. In those situations, the cream usually rises and the better team usually wins…

Keep this in mind that championship franchise #17 made the list of champions in 2016…

Keep this in mind as well…that number is probably not changing to 18 this June…

  1. Everything has to fall in line for that Larry O’Brien trophy otherwise the Spurs would have had way more championships because they have had a lot of consistent opportunities.
