Based on Wikipedia, only other time a team from the West managed to go to 4 NBA Finals in a row was the 80s Lakers (81/82-84/85). Bunch of 3x in a row but never a 5x in a row.

Happened 4 times in the East with Lebron owning 2 of those streaks and Cs owning the other two.

The number of disproportonate calls for star players doesn't excuse shit play. The wins and losses for most of the individual playoff games this year have been one-sided trouncings to the loser. A few bad whistles doesn't do that as much as one team taking a nap when they can't afford to.
I've never seen shooting performances as bad as what the Celtics and Rockets did, nevermind them both doing that in Game 7 at home.

It's almost as if they were throwing the game away because Warriors/Cavs IV was always going to happen.

NBA's commish recently teased the league might consider the idea of having a hard salary cap in the future in order to have better league parity and also implied at not wanting another Cavs-Warriors IV NBA Finals series scenario to happen again.

Right now its a soft cap but with a stricter luxury tax than in MLB since its around $1 in tax for every $1 over the cap limit.

Somehow, I feel like this is more because of the teams (or rather, the markets) involved rather than the happenstance itself. These aren't exactly two bandwagon teams. Golden State is one of four Cali teams - and they're not even the "premier" one - and had to claw themselves back to relevance even AFTER the Clippers did. And Cleveland has been a perpetual joke in pro sports for the better part of the last half century, so there is actually a generational gap where having something in contention is a relatively new experience.

If this were, say, the fourth year in a row of Lakers vs Knicks, or if Chicago did four in a row in their prime against the same Western team (I dunno, say San Antonio), I think the fans would still be a bit fatigued, but the NBA would be creaming themselves at the mere thought of all the ad revenue and ticket sales.

Would love a hard cap. Hate when only 2or 3 teams are actual contenders.

In a move that is very likely going to backfire badly, NBA's ref union is going to start live tweeting their reaction to calls during games with tonight's Warriors-Cavs Game 3 as the start of this plan.

The discussion is being facilitated by the National Basketball Referees Association and will be done from its Twitter account, @OfficialNBARefs. The referees will take questions using the hashtag #RefWatchParty. There will be a team of referees answering the questions, but they will not be identified individually.
