Top 10 NBA Franchises of all time

Lets move on into teams...

I would say Boston and Lakers are top two for sure. Lakers probably first, they won one less title then Boston ... But they made the finals 10 more times. Also boston had many bad years the lakers never had.


Third, I probably put the spurs. They won 2 titles less then the bulls, but outside of jordan era the bulls been piss...
Then again, its thanks to bulls and jordan many people got into the NBA.


Then I think there is detroit pistons, the miami heat, houston rockets, the knicks..

The sixers are also defo in the consideration of top 5 all tme. They brought so many of the great players ( barkley, Iverson, DR. J, Moses , Wilt )..



I would also say Phoenix Suns is probably the best franchise that never won an NBA title.


Dicuss guys, and how would u rank them?

Jazz are probably the best to never win a title (at least i don't think they have won one yet)...

I don't like the Heat, but IMO they are now among the top 5. Even if their success has only come in the last decade.

EDIT: Evaluation is simple, number of Championships won.

Philadelphia has as many championships as heat, and more finals.

Well, the Kings franchise won one title, plus the early 2000's era, they should be in the discussion.

cam and colocolo trolling the poll

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim
