NBA Finals Win-Loss Appearances since 1980

I love using 1980 as a delimiter – because both Magic & Bird revolutionized and popularized the league, and also the 3-point line was introduced the same season. So here is what it looks like for MODERN dominating teams (so ignoring the old Celtics legacy)
