Best Sports Teams of All Timebrom3780
The Top Ten
The New Zealand All Blacks, by far, are the most consistently successful sports team in history over the past 100+ years. Over the past 4 years they have maintained a winning percentage of 94.44% Their winning percentage since 1903 is 77.09%...yes that is a winning percentage of 77.09% over a period of 112 years.
Not to mention they have maintained the number 1 world ranking for 11 out of the 13 years that the ranking system has been in use (since 2003), longer than all other teams combined. They have won the rugby world cup (a once every 4 years event), 3 times, the first country to do so. Last year (2015), they became the first country to win consecutive world cups. They are also the only international side with a winning record against every opponent; and since their international debut in 1903 only five nations have defeated New Zealand in test matches, (England, France, Wales, Australia and South Africa).

If we are basing this discussion on a National Sports Team, over a History of more than 100 years +, with a win/loss ration of more than 77%, losing only to 5 other National sides in their History, then the NZ side certainly has merit to hold this esteemed title. They are the only National Rugby side to win 3 world cups since its inception in 1987, as well as the only side to win back-to-back world cups in 2011/2015. To have lost only 4 games since 2011, and at their largest sporting stadium in NZ, Eden Park, they have played there 34 times, and have not lost a game there. This dates back to 1994...
Soccers great Brazil has won the world cup 5 times, with the inaugural tournament beginning in 1930, 57 years before the 1st Rugby World cup. Ice Hockey National sides like Russia/Canada have won many more World Championships, but these are yearly, and if we used the yearly world rankings to compare the All Blacks ( as the rugby world cup is every 4 years, rather than yearly like ...more
The New Zealand all blacks have just won the 2015 rugby world cup making them the first team to win three word cup titles, they are also the first team to win back to back titles and go undefeated in the last to world cups. with a win/loss rating of 92% over their 110 year history in my opinion are the most dominant sports team in world sports history.
The other teams mentioned are 1 or 2 season wonders match there records over their history and then see how they stack up! also most are usa sports only so for the All Blacks to force their way to top just shows how dominant they areV 42 Comments
Writers and sports fans consider this the best team of all time. With Babe Ruth hitting 60 HR's and Lou Gehrig behind him in the lineup, this team would still win as many games today as in 1927.
Not no. 1? Let me explain, not only did the Yanks destroy every opponent offensively, but they also had the best ERA that year. Plus, this squad returned the next year and dominated almost as easily; unlike the team above them.
You made a mistake on not putting this as number one. With all do respect to the 93 cowboys, Murder Row show be 1.
Considering and comparing the playing field of baseball vs Rugby, their competitiveness, and how difficult it is to win a championship, I'd say the New York Yankees are the best sports team to have ever existed.V 12 Comments
Someone said that the 1979 dolphins went undefeated (14-0) (You would have to go 17-0 to get a perfect regular season now a days) But they are the only team to not lose a game the entire season in football history. They battled through the injuries and all the other hardships in their way to get the perfect season that is a great team my friends
Undefeated plus 3 straight Super Bowls! Best 3 year record in NFL!
No name defense + underrated offense = undefeated season.
The all star game that season consisted of half of their team, the stingiest defense led by the big 3 in Robinson, Savard and Lapointe, as well as the 3 of the top 5 scorers. An 80 game season which they lost just 8 games and a record 132 points that still stands today, of course when you have the greatest coach of all time (Scotty Bowman) he makes it look easy.
What can I say... oh wait: 24 cups, The Rocket, Jean beliveau etc...
As was stated - hardest championship to win - the toll on the body is "nuts"
Montreal's the best team everV 5 Comments
This team was stacked with great players, some of the greatest of all time. However "mistahslut" you would be stupid to think this was all because of MJ. But then again after reading your comment you clearly are stupid... Or 5 years old.
Before "The Three Kings" in LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, & Chris Bosh, there was "The Triple Threat" with Dennis Rodman, Scottie Pippen, & Michael Jordan - AP1090

I agree! This was the best team ever! All very talented players, coaches, and owner. I witnessed the Super Bowl and I'll never forget the experience.
Best team ever! 88/22/8/84/21/48/ enough said!
Deepest and most talented team ever assembled. Not to mention the great coaching. - georgejungismyhero
Words cannot describe how well this team worked as one unit. The O-line dominant! All-time leading rusher at his peak! Substituting D-line that was impossible to block! Pure passing accuracy to the playmaker Aikman to Irvin and the most underrated player was Jay Novachek. Take me back in time so I can enjoy that week by week feeling and experience once again.V 2 Comments
With Lew Alcindor leading the way, this team was dominate. John Wooden had a lot to do with the success, but going 30-0 for the season, was something else!
The bears are awesome they have some groove to just watch the supper bowl shuffle
Nothing better then singing the Super Bowl Shuffle before the Super bowl.
The Bears where the best football team of all time hands downV 4 Comments
Name any other team with athletes so talented, they could bring their city/state six championships in eight years. This wasn't just dominance, this wasn't just force, this was gravity. Each time they jumped, you knew you were the ones going down.
Why is the 98 team ahead of the 96 team if the 96 team is considered the greatest NBA team ever?
Everyone knows Michael Jordan was the star, but his court partners were just as good. Kerr, Salley, Rodman, Kukoc, and Scottie Pippen. - ProThrowbacks
BOI how can you not vote for this team! Michael Jordan The G.O.A.T!V 7 Comments
It takes a spectacular team to beat another team in the Stanley Cup who has won 4 straight stanley cups. And the 83-84 Oilers did just that. Best hockey team ever.
Messier, coffee, and gretzky, three Babe Ruths on the same team
Yes but to low put them at 6ft
11 hall of famers 11 and lombardi notice lombardi trophy
Lombard's packers were the greatest N.F.L TEAMS OF ALLTIMES REMEMBER THEY BEAT
THE DALLAS COWBOYS TWICE IN THE SIXTIES TO GET INTO SUPERBOWL 1&2 AND THE TROPHY IS NAMED AFTER VINCE LOMBARDI
It was nice to see the USA dominate basketball at the Olympics once again. The 2008 team was really a showcase of how basketball was to be played in the big forum. - ProThrowbacks
They absolutely murdered everyone elseV 2 Comments
In my opinion the Yankees are the best team ever and nobody will ever reach as many world seris as the yanks 27 baby!
Their 5th Pitcher Ralph Terry was a #1 starter on most any other team that year. They were dominant and did so many years in a row. Without Maz's fluke home run they win many many in a row.
Best TEAM ever
They were always heroes and destroyed the pads in the world series. They did not have just 1 or 2 or 3 amazing players, everyone was great. Plus who was the rookie call up who hit 5grand slams I think.
The Yankees have the 3rd greatest record in a single season. Out of the Top 3, they actually won the World Series against a powerful Tony Gwynn and Trevor Hoffman
BECAUSE OF JOE MONTANA THIS TEAM WON 3 SUPERBOWLS
Most dominating NFL team I have ever seen.
I TOTALY AGREE! Joe is without a shadow of a doubt the best quarterback ever! The absolute best! Joe has everything the perfect QB should should be they broke the mold I give credit where it's due and I love the nfl in general but there's nobody as great as Joe Montana! You can keep the Farvres and the Simms give me joe all day every day!V 2 Comments
The best 2000s franchise so far
Pats are awesome
Patriots were awesome IN 2003! Come on, they went all the way to beat Carolina in the SB to have the Lombrodi in NE! With Brady, the Pats are unstopbb! +, they went on to win the 2004 SB after this, and won the 2001 SB before this. Also, they went to the07 @ 11 later in the decade. I know I am mostly talking about the later or before Pats, which is why everyone is not picking on this team, otherwise they would be dominant, but Tom Brady, if you are reading this, I am your biggest fan! I wish you luck against the GB packers tommorow
Should easily be in the top 5 come on if not number one.
The "Big Red Machine"! From every fielding position, the entire pitching staff, to the Manager (Sparky); this team deserves to be ranked up at the top among the best. The different personalities that enveloped this team were tremendous. Both defense and offense were top notch. This is rarely the case by other great teams in any sport. But what really set this team apart was every player had a desire to win and it showed in their play. Charlie Hustle (P.R.), Little General (J.B.), The Destroyer (G.F.), The Chief (C.G.), Junior (K.G.), and Little Joe (J.M.). This was a TEAM for the ages!
They one the world series against a overmatched padre team who had to beat the... CUBS!
