Lots of the second S in K.I.S.S. trying to claim that it is as simple as counting to 4 the fastest, though.
Consecutive championships trumps non-consecutive every time when it comes to "dynasty". Remaining on top after reaching the top is as fundamental as it gets to the question no matter how much you wish otherwise or try to imply those that disagree with you are stupid. If the Oil had won 4 straight, then you'd have a starting point for the rest of your argument down the route you want (where you're trying to prove the Oil was a better team or something. that's a different question). As it stands, their unblemished streak of Cups doesn't match the Isles.
