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

Lakers baby

Historiclly the best team ever. Celtics are 2nd. - dankchu

5 Miami Heat 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.

GO HEAT! I grew up with these guys and they will always be my favorites

Miami Heat is the greatest Nba team in the league. They beat the Thunder in the Championship. They have Lebron, Wade, and Bosh one of the greatest players.

6 San Antonio Spurs 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.

Spurs is the best team of all time

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. - guizzy

Most consistent team in the NBA. Thanks Coach Pop. - aloof_teenager

They emphasize perfection, execution, and fundamentals. Greatest team ever with one of the greatest players of all time in Tim Duncan - hiphopgod

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

Too bad KD got a deal done with the warriors. - WorldPuncher47592834

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...

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.

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.

Hell yeah man go Knicks

What? The Knicks are one of the most disappointing NBA teams. - DoroExploro13

They are beast

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

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)

Why the heck are the Clippers way up here? They lost in the first round to the GRIZZLIES! Thunder made it to the second round WITHOUT! Westbrook.

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.

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.

16 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.

WOW GUYS... THEY ARE 1-1 WITH MIAMI HEAT IN 2013 EasterN PLAYOFF FINALS... PAUL GEORGE... THE BEST SHOOTING GUARD... GOING TO BE MVP IN A FEW YEARS (HE IS STILL YOUNG AND LEARNING)... VOTE FOR PACERS BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!

I’m from Indiana and I love the pacers. Let’s get better Oladipo.

Myles turner is one of the best rookie centers ever and jeff Teague is amazing

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

This team should be #1 in 2018

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!

There logo is awesome

19 Washington Wizards 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.

I like them but they stunk

They are a lot better now!

They suck they're the worst team ever

20 Dallas Mavericks 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.

They beat the Heat real bad back in 2011!

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

21 Orlando Magic Orlando Magic The Orlando Magic are an American professional basketball team based in Orlando, Florida. The Magic compete in the National Basketball Association as a member club of the league's Eastern Conference Southeast Division.

They aren't that amazing anymore. They were really good when they had SHAQ, and even before then they had a strong roster. They aren't the worst team right now though.

they're good and should have beat the stinken lakers as should of the nuggets

Orlndo magic I have one word to desribre you and I'm gonna spell it out for ya S A W F T SAWFT

22 Memphis Grizzlies 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.

Gasol and Conley are a great team

Zach plays the best having good players are perfect

Playoff team!

As a Knicks fan I see them winning it all with Dwight Howard

There getting better

They go in space - ifgy

25 Brooklyn Nets 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.

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!

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

What else can you ask for with KG, Pierce, Johnson, and Deron Williams

Great young talent and are in the playoff picture and have had greats like:Kareem and Oscar Robertson and Sydney Moncrief who are hall of famers and have much other gray players who have been hall of famers
