4. Young talent takes the league by storm

When you look back at the five Warriors lineups that all made an appearance in the Finals, three of which winning, there is a difference between best and most enjoyable.

The first year of the dynasty was arguably the most memorable, and if I were to ask millions of people, odds are this team would be their favorite lineup. But that isn’t the argument.

The 2014-2015 Warriors lineup was practically identical to the 2015-2016 lineup that blew a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals. But the big difference, growth, and maturity.

A young squad, with almost all players playing in their first NBA Finals, was entertaining, but with so much room to develop and form into an unbeatable team.

In the next four years, the main talents and consistent users on the dynasty went from young stars to all-time greats. Stephen Curry, the main force on the team, as good as he was in his first MVP season, has been getting better and more unguardable as the years go on.

So with that being said, the 2014-2015 Warriors would be ranked number four among the five-year run.
