Seeking a third title in four seasons and a place among the NBA's immortal dynasties, the Golden State Warriors have drawn motivation from a dwindling list of unachieved accomplishments.In 2016, they had the NBA's best-ever season at 73-9 but fell one win shy of a crown. In 2017, they had a 16-1 playoff run, missing a perfect post-season with a penultimate-game loss.Now matched against Cleveland for the fourth consecutive finals, the Warriors have a chance to join an elite set of clubs with three titles in four seasons – the 1960s Boston Celtics, the 1990s Michael Jordan-led Chicago Bulls and the Lakers from the Kobe Bryant and Magic Johnson eras in Los Angeles and George Mikan's 1950s team in Minneapolis.As the finals shift to Cleveland for Game 3 Wednesday, with Golden State owning a 2-0 lead after a 122-103 home victory Sunday, the Warriors can start to ponder their place among the all-time best.Warriors coach Steve Kerr was a guard in Chicago's dynasty run and has warned players about letdowns.
