Most Dominant Sports Teams Ever
The Top Ten
In rugby union (less played worldwide than football, played more internationally than the sports played by the US teams on this list that are all part of domestic competitions rather than international) there is only one gold standard - the All Blacks. With a ridiculously high win percentage over the history of the international game, any loss by the All Blacks is an upset. If the ABs played every international team, or every team that qualified for the world cup, in a manner similar to the 96 Bulls they would be shocked with a win % as low as the Bulls. The consistency with which a country as small as New Zealand turns out rugby players that stand head and shoulders above the rest of the world is astounding.
The funny thing is if America kept playing rugby when it stopped being an Olympic sport they may well have been the "all black slayers" imagine Carl lewis at 11 lol and every other contact sport speedster the USA have had but instead you guys put the focus on the NFL NBA MLB
Ridiculous that the All Blacks are rated number 5. The first three teams in this poll all played on an American national league level, whilst the All Blacks and Brasil play on an international level. International meaning that they play the best teams of the world in their sport. Opposed to just playing within their own countries, making their achievements greater. The All Blacks should be clearly rated number 1, as they have dominated an entire sport world wide, for not only a few seasons or a decade but an entire century. This poll is abit of a joke lol
By far the most consistently best team at their sport in the world. Totally dominating Rugby Union.
Entering the season, the rivalry between the seemingly emerging dynasty, the Orlando Magic, and the Chicago Bull was supposed to be the NBA's answer to the Cowboys-49ers rivalry in the NFL. But the Bulls absolutely put the Magic to shame. it was so bad, that Shaquille threw a tantrum after getting swept out of the Eastern Conference Finals to the Bulls, and then leaving Orlando altogether. That was how good these Bulls were. They started off the season in historically dominant fashion, and were the first team to ever reach 70+ wins in NBA history, finishing with a 72-10 regular season mark. They blew past their Eastern Conference opponents, going 11-1 to reach the NBA Finals, and then took a decisive 3-0 series lead against the very talented 64-18 Seattle Supersonics, and ultimately won the NBA Finals with no doubt as to who the best team in the league was. The Bulls of the nineties were one of the best sports franchises in history period, and this was far and away the best and most ...more
Any team with Michael jordan is the greatest ever. 1996 chicago bulls team greatest pro team in sports history. 1982 North Carolina tarheels greatest college team of all time. 1992 Olympic dream team greatest team ever assembled! Experts on espn can back this comment up.
boston had great teams, same as lakers, but 96' bulls, jordan, pippen, rodman, kukoc is was something very special, extrodinary!
MICHAEL JORDAN IS MY FAVORITE ATHLETE EVER!
ANY TEAM WITH MICHAEL IS AWESOME AND DOMINANT.
THE BULLS WAS THE TEAM IN THE 90S, AND WON 6 CHAMPIONSHIPS BECAUSE OF JORDAN.
MICHAEL JORDAN IS AAWEESOME!
This team absolutely man handled all of the NFL. They did things in modern day football that were designed to never happen. Don't let the Superbowl loss make you forget how they reduced every team and great teams to rubble week in and out. All while setting multiple records. Forget the '72 Dolphins they couldn't hold a candle to the '07 patriots.
Greatest sports team in history to not win the title! Terrible luck just hit them... In my opinion they are the best team ever.
The 1927 are the greatest ever in sports, let me just say that. This team deserves to be ahead of the 2007. The Yankees won 114 in the regular season then went 11-2 in the playoffs. The Patriots absolutely dominated the regualar season, but you're only dominant when you don't bow to anyone, New England was the only the second best that year.
This 1998 Yank team was the best of the best in sport history.
Dude the '98 Yankees went (including the playoffs) 125-50! The only team that should be ahead of that is the '72 dolphins, and get the '07 pats outta there! They CHOKED in SBXLII
The best foot ball team I have seen in the decade
Ronaldo, Rivaldo, Roberto Carlos...?
Pure art of football
Great team back then with Ronaldo, rivaldo, reberto carlos, marcos, cafe, ze reberto and juniohn and know with new special talentss in marcelo and KAKA
I don't care how much they cheated they were still dominant
Still dominant in 2017 with them winning the grand final
They have been the most dominant NRL team since 2006
If you extend this to the mid-90's, West Indies cricket did not lose a test series in 15 YEARS. 29 test match series of which they never lost.
With players like Richards, Loyd, Garner, Marshall, Ambrose... They terrorized and demolished all oppositions home and away
Ten years at the top of the ICC Test rankings. This team, collected from a group of tiny islands, had the entire world in a chokehold. Graham Gooch probably didn't expect the decade long tear these guys go on after he threatened to "make them grovel".
Greatest college football team ever, with the 1971 Husker team close behind. Totally dominate in every phase of the game and never had a team challenge them. Destroyed #2 Florida in the Fiesta bowl 62-24. I am a huge college football fan, and doubt that there will never be another team like the 1995 Huskers. The backups in "95" may have been ranked in the top 5, they were that good!
We also didn't get busted for paying our players. MIami should automatically be taken off this list
This should probably be #2 to the 1927 Yankees. Definitely the most dominant college team of all time. Only Miami homers don't agree with this. Everyone with a brain knows that just like Jordan and pelé, the only real debate is who is #2. It is very unlikely we will see a team that dominant in college football ever again. That team was Tom Osborne's gift to the world and true football fans are endebted to him for it.
I don't know how they ain't first but they should be best team ever almost all of these guys went pro
Best college team ever.
The best collection of colllege football atheletes ever
95 skers would rekt 01 hurricanes any day any year bring it. you got nothing mate.
u gotta b kidding me man if that was the year of the new england patriots they would have won theier 4th bowl but they didnt lets go miami
They were undefeated, but many of them were close.
2016-17 Panthers will go 19-0
Still dominating at present.
They domainted every thing from the liga to the champions league with their beautiful tiki taka under the great pep guardiola and continued to dominate till 2012
14 from 19 competiions wins
The best football team (soccer) of all time
I think the celtics are the best team in all of sports they won 11 titles in 13 years and 8 in a row
Three should've been 4 premierships in a row in a league where even getting a chance to play for one is EXTREMELY difficult
Most Dominant team for 3 years straight YEWW
Datsyuk was the only one mentioned on this team...Patrick Roy never played for Detroit
PAVEL DATSYUK STEVE YSERMAN GORDIE HOWE AND PATRICK ROY
Easily the best college team of all time, with easily the best college player of all-time, Lew Alcindor [Kareem Abdul-Jabbar], whose UCLA teams lost only 2 games in 4 years.
Also the best college basketball coach of all time, John Wooden, who won 10 NCAA national championships in 12 years.
The defense changed the way NFL offenses approached the game. The 46 defense spelled doom for the traditional pro-set offense the NFL commonly ran in the 80s. The Dolphins relied on Dan Marino's super-quick release and a one-game early version of the spread offense to hand the Bears their one defeat that year (also being without starting QB Jim McMahon was a big factor). When it comes to the word "dominating" though, the '85 Bears simply demolished and demoralized teams. Starting quarterbacks would be routinely knocked out of games, and over the years, that approach to defense was gradually legislated out of the game by league, both to promote player safety and to further encourage the passing game.
It was a perfect storm of volatile personalities and talent across the board who, for one season (and many thought it should have been three or four), left not only an indelible impression on the sports world but drew in the mainstream public like few sports teams ever had, before ...more
Walter Payton on offense, Mike Singletary on defense and Mike Ditka leading the pack
You lose 1 game all year (15-1), allow only 10 points in the playoffs ( 10 in the Superbowl) in a 46-10 blowout...Am I missing something here?
DELETE THAT FIRST ONE PLEASE
Until they lost to the USA, they hadn't lost in nearly 50 games, winning 4 olympic titles
This should be a lot higher
116 wins... we may never see that again.
They won every head to head series. folded in the playoffs but the regular season was ridiculous
How is this team 21? They are literally the most dominant team ever assembled. They went 14-0, no team coming closer than 32 points.
The 1992 United States men's Olympic basketball team, nicknamed the "Dream Team", was the first American Olympic team to feature active professional players from the National Basketball Association (NBA). The team has been described by American journalists as the greatest sports team ever assembled. The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame called the team "the greatest collection of basketball talent on the planet". At the 1992 Summer Olympics held in Barcelona, the team defeated its eight opponents by an average of 44 points en route to the gold medal against Croatia. Chuck Daly served as coach, assisted by Lenny Wilkens, P. J. Carlesimo, and Mike Krzyzewski.
The team scored more than 100 points in all games (the first one in Olympics history).
Daly said : "It was like Elvis and the Beatles put together".
The starting five: Earving Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing.
Top scorer of the team was Charles Barkley.
Gary Ablett jnr = Best player, Chapman= Champion, Bartel= Champion, Selwood= Champion at just 20 yrs old & Future Captain, Max Rooke: Great player & tough as guts, Scarlett: Champion, Enright: Great Defender, Harley: Brilliant Captain, Ottens: Perfect ruckman, Mackie: Worst player in team and still a good as player, and many more, THIS IS THE MOST DOMINANT TEAM EVER!
Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Paul Coffee, Jari Kurri, Grant Fuhr... this team was STACKED!
Should be #1
Undefeated in 2014. Over 85% win rate and one of the oldest teams in sport (1884)
They were awesome
They won the championship. Nine players went to the NBA. The "second" team reached the finals the next two years, winning again in 1998.
