It’s time to call the Warriors championship run a dynasty.

Basketball teams typically have two routes to greatness, argues ESPN‘s Kevin Arnovitz. First, they can design a system that maximizes the strengths of every player. Second, teams can use brute force of superstars to push their way to the top.

“The Warriors have now perfectly fused these two schools, creating a rich confluence of system and talent. They can win big or small, fast or slow, with motion or in isolation, with the shot or with the pass, with the perimeter switch or with interior defense,” Arnovitz writes. “The Warriors simply have all the answers.”
