After all the drama, injuries and potential scares of their 2019 NBA Playoffs run thus far, the Golden State Warriors are back in the NBA Finals for the fifth straight year. Just like we all expected.

But while we wait to see which Eastern Conference team will be tasked with trying to upset the defending champions, we should just take a step back and realize how impressive this past five-year run has been by Golden State.

This might be the most impressive five-season résumé in the history of the modern NBA. Over this stretch, Golden State has lost four or more combined games to only two teams: the Houston Rockets and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Outside of Houston, Cleveland, and KD's former team in the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Warriors are an insane 40-7 against all other opponents in the postseason. The Portland Trail Blazers have now played Golden State in three separate series in this span, and they've only managed to win one game.

Regardless of which Eastern opponent the Warriors face in the 2019 Finals, Golden State is currently a -220 favorite to win it all again this June, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

And If the Warriors win the NBA Finals again this year, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more dominating five-year stretch in NBA history.
