5. Injury-prone roster, dynasty over

After four straight years of complete dominance in the league, winning three championships, the super-team Warriors could only be beaten one way, if needing to deal with injuries.

As they made a championship run at three straight NBA titles, things got complicated in the Bay, rumors started to whip around the world, and possible relationship issues between Kevin Durant and Draymond Green became nearly impossible to overcome.

Despite the locker room issues and talk around the league that the dynasty was coming to an end, the Golden State Warriors were able to reach a fifth straight final.

Because of injuries, Kevin Durant dealing with reoccurring leg injuries during the entirety of the playoff run, and a late ACL tear to sharpshooter Klay Thompson in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, the dynasty was dethroned.

A roster that was arguably the strongest out of the five-year streak showcased its vulnerability late in the season, costing them another championship and landing them a five-spot in the Warriors dynasty ranking.
