    to you maybe,but most generally define it as 3+ championships within a decade,usually with the same principal players being on board for each one

    A sports dynasty is a team that dominates their sport or league for multiple seasons or years.

    National Basketball Association
    -Minneapolis Lakers 1948 to 1954 (5 championships between 1949 and 1954)[15][16]

    -Boston Celtics 1956 to 1986 (16 NBA titles in 30 years overall. 26 winning seasons, 20 division titles, 18 conference titles, including 11 championships in 13 years from 1957–69 and eight in a row from 1959 to 1966)[7][17][18]

    -Los Angeles Lakers of 1979 to 1991 led by Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. (5 NBA championships, 10 Division titles, 9 conference championships, 12 winning seasons)[18]

    -Detroit Pistons of 1987 to 1991 led by Isiah Thomas and the Bad Boys. (5 straight Conference finals appearances ('87 to '91) 3 conference championships ('88, '89, and '90) and NBA championships back to back ('89 and '90)) [18]

    -Chicago Bulls of 1989 to 1998 led by Michael Jordan. (6 NBA championships in 8 seasons, 2 sets of three consecutive championships ('91, '92, '93, '96, '97, '98), 6 division titles in 8 seasons, and hold best regular season record in NBA history (72–10) during the '95–96 season).[7][18]

    -Los Angeles Lakers of 2000 to 2010, led by Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal. Won 6 Division titles in 2000, 2001, 2004, 2008, 2009, and 2010 7 Western Conference championships in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2008, 2009, and 2010 and 3 consecutive NBA championships in 2000, 2001, and 2002, and back to back NBA Championships in 2009 and 2010 including the best postseason record in NBA history in 2001 (15–1).[18]

    -San Antonio Spurs of 1999 to 2008 led by Tim Duncan. (4 NBA championships (1999, 2003, '05, '07) in 9 seasons) are considered a dynasty by some,[18][19][20] but not by others[21][22] because they did not win consecutive titles.

    So the minimum is 3? Who made that rule up? And I know most people disagree, but it's still a subjective term that I feel gets thrown around too often. Heck, there's even some crazies out there that think the Atlanta Braves winning 14 consecutive division titles is a "dynasty."

    just not Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Hakeem Olajuwon, David Robinson, and Isiah Thomas...

    only got there 6 times... not all that much compared to some of the other greats.

    No rule. Just common sense. There isn't a long list of teams that win 3 titles...

    Lakers, Bulls, Lakers again, Spurs...
    Yankees
    Patriots?

    There's not a long list of teams that win two, either.

    The Bulls front office would have been pressured to make moves if they could not beat the Pistons four straight seasons. So who knows what would have happened?

    Dont worry the Heat wont come remotely close to what the Bulls did

    By the way, the 90s Bulls ARE a DYNASTY would have went 8 straight of MJ didnt retire for 2 years

    I do agree with Big Zo that the term dynasty does get thrown around way too much when it shouldn't but 6 titles in 8 years most certainly is a dynasty.

    2 or 3 titles in 4-5 years isn't really a dynasty. Like the Spurs who won 4 in 9 years is a great run but probably just short of being called a dynasty IMO. Not that it's a rule or anything but if you can win like 5 or more with the same core of guys now you're talking dynasties. SA probably needed one more ring to cement themselves as a dynasty the past decade.

    Dynasties aren't one title a decade over multiple decades it's large groups of titles with the same core of guys.
