I know not a lot of people care about the WNBA, but 3 in 6 for the Lynx brought Minnesota our only dynasty 

4 in 7.  They were also in the finals in two of those other three.

 

The Minneapolis Lakers were a dynasty, though you probably have to be 70 to remember any of it.

To me, you have to consecutive championships to be considered a dynasty. I'll accept 3 of 4 like the 2010s Warriors or the early 2000s Patriots or the 90s Cowboys.

There have been some great eras like the Patriots of the past 19 years, or the Spurs with Tim Duncan or the early 2010s SF Giants, but those weren't dynasties to me.

Did anyone mention the 80s NHL Oilers?  As a kid, I got into hockey when the Flyers were losing game 7s to them every couple of years.  That was truly a dynasty.  That they won one even after the Gretzky trade showed how amazing they were.

This is a great one (the Gretzky pun not intended). They ushered in a new era of offensive hockey not seen yet and the roster consisted of several future HOFers.

a good mark of a dynasty is when they have so many championships that one of them is forgettable. That 1990 Oilers team won one without Gretzky and people almost never talk about it. It's like if the Patriots were to win the Super Bowl this year with whoever Jarrett Stidham (I had to google who their backup is) is at QB.

Unfortunately as a Bruins fan, that’s the only championship I remember them winning. 😓

How about non-dynasties? The Giants won three titles in a five year span, and looking back on it, I wouldn’t consider anything about that era a “dynasty”.

 

Have any other teams win that many titles in such a short span without being considered a dynasty?

The LA Kings won two titles in three years, while we also have the Blackhawks' three cups from 2010-2015. Do they qualify?

Give Gabe Kapler a couple of seasons... he'll build a true dynasty.
