I'm a Bulls fan, but you just have to admit the Lakers are constantly great.

Obvious choice for best franchise. Maybe it is my fanboy bias

6 Top 10 players have played for the Lakers.
Shaq
Kobe
Kareem
Wilt
Magic
Lebron
Enough said...

This franchise just keeps on having superstar and in almost every era this franchise always seem to be a great challenge against other teams. Well, we talking about the greatest and this franchise has the most number of great players in the NBA.

2 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.

Celtics are by far better than the la lakers even recently they beat them by 34

Celtics have more championships without the warm weather to attract free agents that's how you know you have a bunch of morons running the Lakers.

Most championships. Lakers "fans" don't count the championships before the 70's because the Celtics beat the Lakers year after year. 6 Celtics championships against the Lakers during the 60's.

I live in Oklahoma but my family is from Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Celtics before thunder. Sorry russ, love ya!

3 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.

Constantly competitive but have been help back time and time again.

The Spurs have proven to be the most consistently good basketball team of all time. There is really no debating it. They are always a threat, especially when others rule them out.

How is chicago above Spurs? They only won 6 rings because of michael Jordan and Scottie pippen themselves. The Spurs may have only won 5 rings but that team literally missed 4 playoff series in the ENTIRE FRANCHISE which started 1966 when they were in ABA and the last they missed the playoff is when David Robinson got injured and the Spurs ended up going on tank mode so that they could get Tim Duncan and since then they never missed the playoff and won 5 rings and had a 50+ win streak for 19 seasons straight. The Bulls are no even close to being as good as the Spurs.

Tim Duncan is a boss. Back to back MVP awards with 3 finals MVP awards along with with all NBA team and all defensive team honors makes him the most consistent player in the NBA. Not to mention names like David Robinson and George Gervin.

4 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. ...read more.

MJ,
Pippen,
Rodman,
Rose,
A history of greatness, who's stuck with crappy ownership and coacing

Even though my team is the Knicks I gotta say the bulls in the 90's were the best basketball team ever... Jordan, Pippen, Rodman were no joke... commin from a Knicks fan - RED_EYEZ

If Michael jorden did not play for the bulls the bulls would not be on the list

Spurs are much more domenent

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

Similar to other teams on the list, an amazing history, but have struggled to get another ring. Many of their current players are one trick ponies, I mean Simmons can't shoot, and Embid went 0/17 a few months ago.

This logo to me isn't the Sixers logo we all know and love.

The Allen Iverson era is the main reason the 76ers are what they are today.

Easily one of the most historic franchises in all of sports history

They can not play anymore

6 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.

To the knicks fan below the pistons have more titles all time than you! The bad boys won back to back and equaled your championship total themselves

Pistons got the history the money and some crazy fans

Team basketball... the way it should be.

Bad Boys

7 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.

Not as historic as some of the other teams but they had their time, and guys like Wade and Lebron demand respect.

Not as much history as the other top franchises, but it is the most successful expansion franchise. Pat Riley put his championship pedigree to work, and has brought 3 NBA titles, 5 Eastern Conference titles, and numerous Division titles to South Beach.

They have only been in the NBA for 26 years and have been a good team almost every year.

Best owner Best GM one of the best run franchises in sports the owner runs a cruise ship company and knows how to provide the best in service

8 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. ...read more.

6 nba championships across 4 decades and had the most talented team of all time

The latest great dynasty in basketball, but losing Curry and Thomson to injury, and Durant to the Nets really hurt. Draymond Green went from hero to zero. 2021 could prove to be a wonderful rebound with that top draft pick.

About to have 7 championships, they should be ranked 3 at this point

Now they are boss! Curry is my favorite player. I think they will win it all for a second straight year! - steelers1979

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.

Easily top 10 their better than the bad boy pistons have more years in the nba than any other team Utah jazz yeah right they have no titles the knicks have been to the finals 5 times come on they should be higher

2 rings compared to cavs 0 ring

10 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.

Hakeem is the greatest beside magic, Michal and bill

The Contenders

11 Phoenix Suns

They were really good in the 90s and even better in the 2000s going to the conference finals almost every year.

Steve nash is great

Even though the Suns haven't won an NBA finals yet but they are one of the winningest franchises of all time

Revolutionary playstyle

12 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.

They were amazing in the 1990's and the early 2000's and are now back to greatness

The Jazz should be number 7 John Stockton and Karl Malone and Jeff hornesek I mean it is harder to get better then them three

Signifies the 1 - 2 punch

They are awesome

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

16 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.
