Top 10 NBA Teams

The Top Ten
1 Boston Celtics The Boston Celtics are an American professional basketball team based in Boston, Massachusetts. They are specifically known for honing infamous players such as Larry Bird, Bill Russell, Paul Pierce, and more. They are also known for having the most championships in NBA History, with 17 total.

I'm gonna compare the Celtics and the lakers all time so we can finally find out who's better.

As of January 23 2023 both the Celtics and lakers have the most championships with 17 each. The Celtics have made 22 finals while the lakers have made 32. The Celtics all time record is 3548-2449 which is 2nd for win percentage and most recorded wins in nba history. The lakers all-time record is 3482-2405 which is 3rd in win percentage and 2nd in wins. In head to head all time the Celtics lead the rivalry 207-164 and are 9-3 against the lakers in the finals.

The Celtics are definitely better than the lakers and will always be a better franchises. They have 17 championships which is tied for the lakers for the most, they had 8 straight from 1959-1966 and played in 10 consecutive nba finals from 1957-1966. Bill Russell was injured in the 1958 finals when the Celtics lost. We also have the most recorded wins in nba history. We also have the most hall of famers with 40. I'm gonna list some players that they had. They had bill Russell, Larry bird, bob Cousy, John Havlicek, Kevin Michale, Paul pierce, Kevin Garnett, Tom heinsohn, Sam Jones, Dennis Johnson, Robert parish, and rashawn rondo.

Lakers fans are such bandwagons. Do they realize we also have 17 championships? The Celtics also got 9 wins over the lakers in the finals. We own the lakers. The lakers are a poverty franchise

Most NBA Titles, 8 straight and complete team with players such as Bill Russell, Bird, Mchale, Jones, Garnett, Pierce, etc. Boston have stepped up in the NBA Finals even though the Lakers were in the Finals way more times. That shows how dominant Boston were in BOTH conferences. No doubt the Lakers have great history and all, but it falls just short, with Boston having a better future as well with some number 1 draft picks. The Future is Bright!

2 Los Angeles Lakers The Los Angeles Lakers are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles. The Lakers compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Western Conference Pacific Division. Head coach: Frank Vogel Arena/Stadium: Staples Center NBA championships: 2020, 2010, 2009, 2002, 2001, 2000, 1988, 1987, 1985, 1982, 1980, 1972, 1954, 1953, 1952, 1950, 1949 Owners: Philip Anschutz, Ed Roski Jr., Patrick Soon-Shiong, Joey Buss, Johnny Buss, Jesse Buss, Jim Buss, Jeanie Buss, Janie Buss Did you know: The Los Angeles Lakers have the second-highest all-time NBA regular season win-loss record percentage (.598) among all current NBA teams.

The Lakers. Say it and you know it. You kinda get to a point where your like "okay there's really no match for them." I'm 12 and my childhood hero is Kobe Bryant and I was so sad when he retired. He still had the best retirement game EVER though. Anyway, these guys have so many championships, so many years of winning it all in a row. The best players, shaq, Kobe, magic, Kareem. The whole team is my hero. I love them. Right now they are in a stage of rebuilding their team though since they lost Kobe and so maybe they aren't doing as well. But still, like Kobe says, "If you can't root for us when we lose, don't root for us when we win" and I think that has a lot of meaning to it. People are just bandwagon fans of the Warriors and stuff but the lakers have always been it, and I get so mad when people just switch teams like that because the lakers deserve to keep their fans and they shouldn't be taken away just because they are rebuilding their team. Go lakers, and I'll always stay loyal ...more

The lakers are the best. Wilt Shaq Magic Lebron Kobe Kareem AD are awesome. I had an awesome childhood watching kobe and Shaq dunking over everyone. Rest in peace Kobe. The Celtics fans do not even care that Kobe died. They just whine about that they are the best. If you really think about it, the Lakers are the G.O.A.T. Plus, the Celtic lost to the Friggin SUNS. We also beat the Celtics. If you ask me, The Bucks should be number 2. Kareem is the one with six titles and MVPs,Wilt is the one who scored 30,00 points in his career, Magic is known for his "Magic Touch" passing skills, LeBron is known for his slam dunking, Kobe is known for his stylish dunks, and AD is known that he was the first pick in the NBA 2012 draft.

The 16 titles are not the difference how about the celebrity fan base
Here are the 20 reasons why the Lakers are the best franchise ever
1. Celebrity fan base
2. Winning
5. The 80s
6. Magic Johnson
7. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
8. Their athletes
9. The 00s
10. Their in L.A.
12. Shaq
13. Their battles with the Celtics
14. Fan interest
15. Their Great Players
16. Their in California
17. They have 4 of the top ten greatest players in NBA history
18. Playoff wins
19. The multitude of great players
20. Their Records

Definitely the greatest basketball team of all time. I know the Celtics have one more title (17) than the Lakers (16) but that was because Bill Russell led them to 11 titles in 13 years when there were around 8 teams I the league. Apart from that period the Lakers were better than the Celtics in every other decade and when there were many more teams in the leagues. And the Lakers made ten more Finals appearances than the Celtics too.

3 Chicago Bulls The Chicago Bulls are an American professional basketball team based in Chicago, Illinois. The Bulls compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Central Division. more.

Welcome back D-Rose! Carlos, Noah, Nate, Rip, Jimmy, Coach, and those other confident men that think they can back up MJ's Bulls for the second greatest Bulls era. Maybe, next year out of no where they go 73-9 and become the best Bulls era. We don't know and we can't wait to see everybody's future.

The Chicago Bulls was one of the best sports teams of the 1990s thanks to Michael Jordan. They won three back-to-back NBA final series games twice during that decade. They were unstoppable. Way to go Bulls!

The bulls are the best team in the league. They consistently beat teams like the cavs and the raptors and they also have players like jimmy butler. What could be better?

Michael Jordan is the best NBA player of all time. Not only the NBA, but he is also the greatest in basketball.

4 San Antonio Spurs The San Antonio Spurs are an American professional basketball team based in San Antonio, Texas. The Spurs compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league's Western Conference Southwest Division.

The definition of professionalism and consistency. Pop and company have shown the ability to adapt to changes in the game and be at the forefront of innovation. They retool and add players that fit their philosophy. They used small ball to dominate the Heat in the finals rematch. They attack weaknesses in opposing teams. With this level of competence from top to bottom, they have been perennial championship contenders, and they have not shown signs of slipping.

One of the most professional and disciplined sports franchises anywhere, the Spurs are the bastion of what team basketball actually is. They're truly the model of how an NBA team should be run, and it's showed since they've won 5 championships since 1999. You really can't help but respect what Popovich and Co. have done, especially considering that the Spurs are in a very small market in San Antonio.

By far best professional sports franchise for almost a quarter of a century now. Look it up. Oh, and with continuous "small market" dismissiveness perpetuated by Stern and other idiots in smaller markets who control the flow, the 7th largest city, and BY FAR the most popular NBA team in Texas, the question you need to ask yourself is: "What's REALLY REAL? " PURO San Antone, FOOLS. To summarize, no talk, lots of walk!

Old? That means that they are a veteran team. Those blew games, surprised everybody but that was last year. Come on, guys stop talking about that. That is old too. Remember, before this crazy thing they swept Memphis and my Lakers. Parker, Manu, Timmy, Green, Kawhi, Diaw, Splitter, and coach have a short bright future. But, happy to say at least one more extra year.

5 Miami Heat The Miami Heat is an American professional basketball team based in Miami, Florida. The Heat compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Southeast Division.

For me, they are most likely the team that will do it. I know. Again. But, that is what I see from my eyes. James, will be the same will get better, and does get better every day. So, will Wade, who had an up and down year has a fresh new start ahead. Chris Bosh, I don't know about his decisions on taking 3's but Allen will make most of his. Birdman will have another great year.

I bet 1/2 the people that voted for them don't know what they are talking about. Okay they have been doing good for like what 3 years? That doesn't mean anything. Teams that are actually are good, like the Lakers, Celtics or Bulls- have a good past.

For one the heat is way better than any other team in the NBA. I mean really look at the rankings they beat the Celtics, the Bulls, and the Lakers. They should be at the top of the list not 3rd.

The heat only have 3 good players and there has never been a dominate player for the heat until they FINALLY got some good players for once and there coach isn't even good he just has good players on his team that will get old. And just like I predicted Lebrun went back to clevland you Miami loser.

6 Golden State Warriors The Golden State Warriors are an American professional basketball team based in San Francisco. The Warriors compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league's Western Conference Pacific Division. Location: San Francisco, CA Arena/Stadium: Chase Center Head coach: Steve Kerr NBA championships: 2018, 2017, 2015, 1975, 1956, 1947 Owners: Joseph S. Lacob (majority), Peter Guber

I think the Warriors are a top three team. I think that the bulls are lower. The only reason the Bulls have even one championships is when Scottie pippin came and helped MJ. The Warriors are in a tough spot right now after loosing KD and boogie they are the under dogs. D lo will help the offensive when Klay I out with his ACL Injury. The have one 6 championships. The best franchise in my opinion is the Lakers. Even those they are rivals with the Warriors they have had some of the best players of all time.

I was recently talking to a friend and I told him I'm a Warriors fan. Turns out he's a Spurs fan. his reaction is a disgusted face and he says, "the Warriors are just a bunch of wannabes." I'm like, "what are you talking about!? sure you have Kawhi, Aldridge and Gasol, but the Warriors got Curry, Durant, Thompson, Green." He still didn't believe the Warriors are better. but right now they hold the wins record in a single season with a record of 73-9. Honestly I think the Warriors are the greatest team of all time.

The Golden State Warriors are exceptional. Their players work extremely well together and, even under pressure, they emerge victorious. Look at the playoff series against OKC. They were down 3-1 and then came back and are now in the finals. In game 7, I think that the warriors are the one that should win. Curry, Thompson, Draymond, Igoudala, Barnes, Bogut, Steve Kerr, and all of the team can make them back to back NBA champions.

I like the Golden State Warriors, especially when they win the NBA championship. I don't like when the good players move to another team. They got Curry, Thompson, Durant, Green and Cousins. They are the top 5 players in the GSW.

7 Cleveland Cavaliers The Cleveland Cavaliers, also known as the Cavs, are an American professional basketball team based in Cleveland, Ohio.

Definitely should be higher they have Lebron, Kyrie, Love & a underrated bench. They could use another star to beat the Warriors but should be number 2.

A lot of things make the Cavs great, but the best things are Lebron James, for obvious reasons, and the fans because they keep rooting for the Cavs, even though they never won a NBA championship, yet.

Lebron to Kyrie to Love to everyone in the team they will demolish everything and everyone who stands in their way to golden victory! Cavs 4 life!

They are just too good and won all the recant seasons as well as that they play as a good team go Cleveland!

8 Oklahoma City Thunder The Oklahoma City Thunder are an American professional basketball team based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Westbrook is finally recovering. Durant, Perk, Serge, and a great young coach. You know, it is hard to lose a great coach like Maurice Cheeks but they have that bright future in front of them. They are young and talented, when they get older and learn more from the game they will probably capture that ring.

How many rings? Brian Scalabrine has more rings than the entire organization. Your organization is trash like half your player.

Westbrook and PG13 will lead our boys to a championship. We got some awesome big men such as Noel, Adams and Patterson. My man Andre Roberson is healthy again with Dennis Scroder being the 6th Man of the year...

Just because thunder didn't win championship doesn't mean they suck you watched cavs come back 3-1 series against stupid warriors.

9 New York Knicks The New York Knickerbockers, commonly referred to as the Knicks, are an American professional basketball team based in the borough of Manhattan, in New York City.

New York Knicks is on way to rebuilding and expect to be Championship contender in the next season. I believe in their spirit to be better and do what are necessary to get on top.

What? The Knicks are one of the most disappointing NBA teams.

Hell yeah man go Knicks

They are beast

10 Los Angeles Clippers The Los Angeles Clippers, often abbreviated as the LA Clippers, are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles.

Paul, Griffin, Jordan, Dudley, Crawford, Mr. Big Shot, Doc, Barnes, Odom, Collison, Redick. 10 players and 1 fine, great coach named Doc. Donald Sterling did a pretty good job doing his job. A championship team is what people think. But, I think they are a finals team cause I think Miami can do it.

I actually met them at the Santa Monica Pier in 2015. I honestly did not expect that, and it was a once-in-a-lifetime moment that I will never forget. I even got a free t-shirt from them! (I am from Philly)

One of the worst teams, definitely shouldn't be in the top 10. They lost to the grizzlies, like what? There is a lot of better teams below.

A joke of a team. Will never win a title

The Contenders
11 Houston Rockets The Houston Rockets are an American professional basketball team based in Houston, Texas. The Rockets compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Western Conference Southwest Division.

Bad decision by D. But, great future for Dwight David Defense Howard. You also have to fear the beard and watch out what games Jeremy LIn will come out of nowhere and be the player of the game. Also, watch for Chandler Parsons and Omer Asik they could be important pieces for them.

They have a huge player that is my model of basketball JAMES HARDEN! I think he is the #1 basketball player

Weird Beard is a beast and the Rockets should be ahead of the spurs!

They're doing pretty good this season... I will always stay loyal.

12 Toronto Raptors The Toronto Raptors are a Canadian professional basketball team based in Toronto, Ontario. The Raptors compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Atlantic Division.

Toronto Raptors have always been my favorite team but I never lost doubt! when they first traded DeMer Derozan, but I think that might have been the best thing, they have done way better with Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard, but don't get me wrong DeMer was a great player too, but this year Rptors are going all the way this year. Best luck for Sunday night, lets be #1

They are one of the better teams, but they are no where near the best. I don't see them doing any better than they are doing now.

Whoever made this list is an idiot, bulls and knicks in front of raptors? Are you kidding me?

Go Lowry hard to win the playoffs but I think the raptors will win the playoffs!

13 Philadelphia 76ers The Philadelphia 76ers are an American professional basketball team based in the Philadelphia metropolitan area.

The 76ers have had some good years, but they've had more bad ones then good ones their 3-31 start this year should say a lot about that. They also have the record of the worst season in NBA history as well as the 2nd and 3rd worst starts to a season in NBA history. They should not be in the top ten

They've had some good history. Lately they have no skill, and even the past 10 years have all been unluck.

They are pretty bad now. Before the 2000s, they were actually pretty good.

They are an odd team because they have Iversion who is the most overrated NBA player of all time, and Moses Malone who is the most underrated player of all time

14 Utah Jazz The Utah Jazz are an American professional basketball team based in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Jazz compete in the National Basketball Association as a member club of the league's Western Conference Northwest Division.

Late 90s magic. And John Stockton of course.

Great defensive team

The best team ever!

15 Detroit Pistons The Detroit Pistons are an American professional basketball team based in Detroit, Michigan. The Pistons compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Central Division.

Drummond, Jackson, Morris, Caldwell, Johnson. They play great as a team and I hope they win next year

Anyone remember the Bad Boys era 1980s Isaiah Thomas, Dennis Rodman, Joe Dumars, Bill Laimbeer. Its not just the Chauncey, Rip, Rasheed, Prince, and Ben era

Detroit Pistons are good at moving on and they keep moving forward no matter what

16 Dallas Mavericks The Dallas Mavericks are an American professional basketball team based in Dallas, Texas. The Mavericks compete in the National Basketball Association as a member club of the league's Western Conference Southwest Division.

How could they be at number 7?! They may have just 1 ring in the league but still they have a roster that has many veterans like Nowitzki, Kidd, Terry, and Stojakovic! And Miami stunk on game 2 on the 2011 finals after Dirk's 3 and the finishing lay-up! They should higher than the Heat! Bosh, James, Wade You call yourselves the big three?!

Really? 7? They should be in the top 5, they have great shooters, great players, great coach, they beaten the Miami Heat.

Only 16, should be top 8 since they destroyed the Heat in 2011. Really awesome comeback.

They beat the Heat real bad back in 2011!

17 Brooklyn Nets The Brooklyn Nets are an American professional basketball team based in the borough of Brooklyn, in New York City. The Nets compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference.

In my description earlier, I made fun of Boston cause KG, Terry, and Pierce were gone. They were going to Brooklyn. With already Deron, Joe, Brook, a new coach in Kidd but Billy King is that man who can make a move at any time. He could even waive Deron if he wants to which he won't. They have KG, Pierce, and veterans that can help in Jason's up and downs.

Very underestimated. Even though they aren't very good, they somehow destroy very strong teams, such as the Warriors.

One of the best all time starting lineup in the nba PG Jason Kidd SG Richard Jefferson SF Julius 'Dr.J' Erving PF Kenyon Martin C Brook Lopez a very underrated team!

18 Indiana Pacers

They have a great shot blocker so that even if they have failing offense Roy Hibbert can still take over. Including a lock down defender in George and West. Then a young coaching talent in Frank Vogel. Bright future.

19 Portland Trailblazers The Portland Trail Blazers, commonly known as the Blazers, are an American professional basketball team based in Portland, Oregon.

A lot of people forgot about this amazing team..
Okay, they aren't the best, but they should be at least in the top 10. They seem to destroy the Warriors, whom are the best team in the nba currently. They have great players, I don't even know what else to say. They are good.

Umm objectively speaking we are definitely the best NBA team in history using facts.

Looks like people forgot about Cylde Drexler, Bill Walton, Terry Porter, and now Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum. come on, they should be top 10.

One of my favorite teams

20 Phoenix Suns

Barkley and Nash were two incredible players. Possibly the best team that never won the championship.

It should be on top 3

21 Milwaukee Bucks The Milwaukee Bucks are an American professional basketball franchise based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Bucks compete in the National Basketball Association as a member team of the Eastern Conference Central Division.

Why are we so low? We should be at least in the top 5. PLEASE more votes for the bucks! Does anyone even remember that we're the 2021 champs?

Come on man! We should be higher. We have the best record right now in 2020! We have giannis and everyone. We should be way higher like number two. The Celtics have more losses than win for crying out loud! The celtics have nothing on us.

The bucks should be number 2 and replace the celtics. The Bucks have Giannis, Khris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe, Kareem, and oscar robertson. They also are better than the bulls. The Milwaukee bucks won over the bulls.

Should be way higher. How come we are so low? This is an rip off. I don't even know why we are number 20. We have giannis and Middleton.

Celtics have nothing on us.

22 Memphis Grizzlies The Memphis Grizzlies are an American professional basketball team based in Memphis, Tennessee. The Grizzlies compete in the National Basketball Association as a member team of the league's Western Conference Southwest Division.

Just having Conley, Z-Bo, Marc, Bayless, Quincy and all the others have a great future, the sweep last year was only Spurs luck and Grizzlies frustration.

23 Minnesota Timberwolves The Minnesota Timberwolves are an American professional basketball team based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

They don't do horrible, but they shouldn't be in the top 10. I think they deserve current spot.

At least they're ahead of the New Jersey Nets!

Come on with K.G back be got this in the bag

There logo is awesome

24 Atlanta Hawks The Atlanta Hawks are an American professional basketball team based in Atlanta, Georgia. The Hawks compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Southeast Division.

WHAT! Atl made to the playoffs other than all these sucky teams! How are the CAVs and the Hornets better than Atl! They didn't even make the playoffs

There getting better

They are stupid

They go in space

25 Washington Wizards The Washington Wizards are an American professional basketball team based in Washington, D.C. The Wizards compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Southeast Division.

They're one of the most underrated.

They are a lot better now!
