Best Sports Teams of All Time


The Contenders: Page 2

21 1978 Pittsburgh Steelers (NFL)

Best team ever - the thing about football is there are two sides to a team - three if you include special teams. Either way, this TEAM was great both sides of the ball.

15? Are you kidding me? Easily best team of all time! Should be number 1

They are literally the best team of nfl

22 1992 United States Men's National Team (Basketball)

This was the best sports team of all time. How can you not agree. I guess if you were not born yet or not old enough to comprehend the magnitude of awesomeness. This was the best collection of skilled athletes put on one time at a great time in American sports. Check the roster again if you don't think this team was the best ever.

So great other countries were happy to lose to them. They had no real competition in these games but the role call of legends is unlikely to ever be matched again in any sport.

How else would you respond to the 88 games when we sent in college students to lose to the more experienced ussr? You send in the dream team! The best of the best, that team will never be forgotten.

This not being at #1 is a travesty.

23 2015-2016 Golden State Warriors (NBA)

WITH the numbers curry put up that season this may well have been one of the best basketball teams

Awesome team they rock

Started the season 28-0.

This team is best

24 1999 Manchester United (Premier League)

Manchester United is the most successful club in England

I hate Manchester United my top 4 least favorite preimer leuge teams

2.Manchester United
3.Man City

25 2009 FC Barcelona (Soccer)

Finding this team in 56th place just shows how useless this list is.. They won everything playing the most beautiful "soccer" ever seen. Useless...

The best football team ever, lead by the best coach ever (Pep Guardiola) and the best soccer player of all times (Lionel Messi).

The greatest show of football by the the greatest team ever

Wow. Finding Barça at the 59th position makes me realize people know less about Europe and about sports than what I thought at first.

26 2004 New England Patriots (NFL)

Both the new england teams should be up there because they are amazing with tom brady on their side - ballaboi17

27 1998 Denver Broncos (NFL)

Elway, Davis, Atwater enough said. The 1998 Denver Broncos are and will forever be the best sports team of all time. I would like to see somebody name at least one single team from any sport of all time that is better than the 1998 Denver Broncos.

28 2007 New England Patriots (NFL)

They were so close from winning the super bowl

29 2008 Boston Celtics (NBA)
30 2004 Boston Red Sox (Baseball) V 1 Comment
31 1908 Chicago Cubs (Baseball)
32 1986 Boston Celtics (NBA)

These Celtics should be in the top 15 at least. For those that disagree, take it up with Kevin Mchale, Larry Bird. and Robert Parish

33 2013 Indian Cricket Team

Indian cricket team is great now... The talent is new and the captain is experienced...

Indian cricket team is the best - jayanth

34 2013 Australia National Rugby League Team
35 2001-2002 Detroit Red Wings (NHL)

Also, I think that with the amount of future hall-of-famers on this team, it may be the only team in the history of the four major North American sports leagues (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL) that could compare to what I think was the greatest team in any sport assembled for any event, the 1992 Summer Olympics USA Men's Basketball team. By the way, just for the record, whoever voted for the 2008 USA Men's Basketball Team over the 1992 one, they're a bunch of idiots.

This team had a coach in his final season who was already in the hall of fame, the legendary Scotty Bowman, who won his record 9th Stanley Cup with this team. Add to that the additions of hockey legends Dominik Hasek, Brett Hull, Luc Robitaille, and rookie sensation Pavel Datsyuk, to a team already stacked with hall of fame caliber players like Steve Yzerman, Sergei Fedorov, Brendan Shanahan, Nicklas Lidstrom, Chris Chelios, and Igor Larionov. Amazingly, this team was so deep that Robitaille and Larionov played on this team's 4th line! Also, 12 players from this team, all of the 10 listed above plus Frederik Olausson and Tomas Holmstrom, represented their countries at the Winter Olympics that season. No other team to this day has sent more players to the games. All in all, with apologies to the 1976-1977 Montreal Canadiens, in terms of pure talent of the players, this NHL team has no equal.

Pulled off the impossible. Enough said.

37 1941 New York Yankees (Baseball)
38 1972 Los Angeles Lakers (NBA)

I don't think that very many people know that pro champs use to play exhibition games against the Harlem globetrotters who took this laker team apart.

This should be higher, it was the best big three in bball ever with 3 players in the top 5 scoring average of all-time
T1- wilt chaberlain
4 Elgin Baylor
