Top 10 NBA Teams

The Top Ten NBA Teams

1 Los Angeles Lakers The Los Angeles Lakers are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles. The Lakers compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Western Conference Pacific Division. ...read more.

Magic, West, Kareem, Kobe, Shaq, LeBron, AD, and many more have been in the greatest franchise ever. If you got every single team to assemble their greatest players the Lakers would dominate. The only real threats would come from the Celtics or Bulls.

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

The Lakers are overrated but they managed to trade players to get players from other teams they didn't draft like Kobe, Davis, or Lebron. They are currently 2nd in the league behind the Bucks but only cause the Bucks have Middleton and Giannas. My favorite team is the Bucks however the Lakers I think are overall better. - peacceee

Magic, Kobe, Kareem, Wilt, Shaq, Lebron, Worthy, West, Baylor, and Mikan. Not to mention players that played for them while they were not in their prime like Malone, Nash, and Payton

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.

Boston Won most championship
All lakers fan do is mone about how they are the best when we beat them more And then they beat us I mean. Reason why lakers are he best and you put Kobe there and he has won 6 rings sorry but bill Russell has won 11
I mean laker have got nothing on us.

The Celtics have the most titles
They have beat LA in the finals more than LA has beat them
They had Bill Russel, Bob Cousey, Larry Bird and other Hall of Famers
They have been playing the same team and defense first style for years
Today the score might be tied 1-1 between Kobe and the Big 4
But everybody wants to be the one to beat the Lakers and they were destroyed by Dallas
The Celtics also lost but they put fight and rondo inspired the whole NBA after Wade took him down
The only laker who would do that today would be Kobe
Every Celtic would have done that.
Celtic are the best team ever end of story from the great Bill Rusel to the soon to be have multiple assist tittles Rajon Rondo

They did a great job against the Indiana Pacers in the playoffs with an amazing sweep

They have the most titles but haven’t been to as many finals games so they should be #1

3 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.

Michael Jordan is the best NBA player of all time. Not only the NBA, but he is also the greatest in basketball.

People always talk about Michael but here is a fact for you- MJ never made it past the first round without Pippen. This is why the GOAT is Lebron

Mj was the best player ever hands down lakers aren't Evan a playoff team this year. This list
SUCKS

Welcome back D-Rose! Carlos, Noah, Nate, Rip, Jimmy, Coach, and those other confident men that think they can back up MJ's Bulls for the second greatest Bulls era. Maybe, next year out of no where they go 73-9 and become the best Bulls era. We don't know and we can't wait to see everybody's future.

4 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.

Duncan, Robinson, Gervin, Parker, Leonard, and Manu are all incredible players that are in the top 50. Plus 5 rings. Better than the Bulls.

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

How could the Spurs be at #6, They have the best playoff record in the last 12 years than any other pro team in all pro sports. In a 9 year period they won 4 championships. Not to mention they haven't missed the playoffs in 14 seasons! #5 in 2014! - westofohio

Old? That means that they are a veteran team. Those blew games, surprised everybody but that was last year. Come on, guys stop talking about that. That is old too. Remember, before this crazy thing they swept Memphis and my Lakers. Parker, Manu, Timmy, Green, Kawhi, Diaw, Splitter, and coach have a short bright future. But, happy to say at least one more extra year.

5 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.

Had the best big three of the modern era, and has arguably the second-best player of all time, the third best SG of all time, and had a great PF/C.

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.

Man, LeBron, Wade, Bosh, we've got the big 3! And people like them internationally. Greetings from Australia

6 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.

People always remember Curry, KD, Klay, and Green. But the greatest Warrior player is Wilt Chamberlain

The only good player is Stephen Curry and Klay Thompso, they are doing trash

I think the Warriors are a top three team. I think that the bulls are lower. The only reason the Bulls have even one championships is when Scottie pippin came and helped MJ. The Warriors are in a tough spot right now after loosing KD and boogie they are the under dogs. D lo will help the offensive when Klay I out with his ACL Injury. The have one 6 championships. The best franchise in my opinion is the Lakers. Even those they are rivals with the Warriors they have had some of the best players of all time.

Curry is the greatest shooter of all time and they are the best team since 2015

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

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.

This team relies on Durant and Westbrook. Without them this team is nothing.

Their the best team ever. They kick Miami heats ass. They kick ass against the lakers.

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

Denis is not better than LeBron the best pro b-ball players are LeBron James Stephen curry Klay Thompson

Definitely should be higher they have Lebron, Kyrie, Love & a underrated bench. They could use another star to beat the Warriors but should be number 2.

A team who had trouble finding their rhythm, but got better player, (including LeBron and kyrie), and then got to the finals and won - Jermaineb12

They are just too good and won all the recant seasons as well as that they play as a good team go Cleveland!

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

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.

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.

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.

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)

10 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.

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.

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

Hell yeah man go Knicks

They are beast

The Contenders

11 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.

They have a huge player that is my model of basketball JAMES HARDEN! I think he is the #1 basketball player

Yao Ming, Dwight Howard, Hakeem Olajuwon, James Harden, Chris Paul... multiple others.

With a big history with a man that can dominate hakeem olujuwon with blocking skills and huge dunk that could of broke the backboard and the draft they are going select Dwight howard

Houston and Chicago should switch Hakeem never lost even once against the Bulls

12 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.

They literally just beat the New York knicks, the Raptors should be higher

They literally just won the finals, come on why aren't they higher?

This is my favorite nba team, they won the 2019 nba finals, it was awesome - trains45

This is my favorite team, they made the 2019 nba finals with the golden state warrios, go raptors go, it be cool if they win the nba finals

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

They are an odd team because they have Iversion who is the most overrated NBA player of all time, and Moses Malone who is the most underrated player of all time

The 76ers have had some good years, but they've had more bad ones then good ones their 3-31 start this year should say a lot about that. They also have the record of the worst season in NBA history as well as the 2nd and 3rd worst starts to a season in NBA history. They should not be in the top ten

Even though they were miserable this year, they still have a now of good history

My family friends Dad coached Ben Simmons as a kid

14 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.

Great defensive team

The best team ever! - hollyeb13

They're awesome

THE JAZZ ARE MOVING UP IN THE STANDINGS. THEY HAVE SOME VERY GOOD PLAYERS. WITH EVERYONE HEALTHY THE CAN COMPETE WITH THE BEST!

15 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.

Chauncey, Rip, Sheed, Prince, Ben

What more can you say

Detroit basketball

Drummond, Jackson, Morris, Caldwell, Johnson. They play great as a team and I hope they win next year

I love the Piston so much Go Andre Drummond

16 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.

17 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

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

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!

This team should be #1 in 2018

There logo is awesome

19 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!

20 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.

How are they not ranked higher

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!

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

21 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.

I like them but they stunk

They are a lot better now!

They suck they're the worst team ever

They're one of the most underrated.

22 Milwaukee Bucks The Milwaukee Bucks are an American professional basketball franchise based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Bucks compete in the National Basketball Association as a member team of the Eastern Conference Central Division.

Best team ever they have a 14 win streak and no team is even close to that,

Why this so low we have giannis and middleton we had kareem abdul jabbar

They beat 2 undefeated teams and Oscar Robertson is a great nba player!

They gave the 24-0 Warriors there first loss of 2015

23 Portland Trailblazers The Portland Trail Blazers, commonly known as the Blazers, are an American professional basketball team based in Portland, Oregon.

Umm objectively speaking we are definitely the best NBA team in history using facts. - snoopykat

We get forgotten about we have the best rookies this year

They are one of the best teams

One of my favorite teams

24 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.

I think they are a really good team, on my opinion they should be top 11 or 12.

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

25 Phoenix Suns

Barkley and Nash were two incredible players. Possibly the best team that never won the championship.

Best NBA team how are they so low THEY DON'T SUCK

It should be on top 3

My favorite NBA team

26 Atlanta Hawks The Atlanta Hawks are an American professional basketball team based in Atlanta, Georgia. The Hawks compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Southeast Division.

They are stupid

There getting better

27 Denver Nuggets The Denver Nuggets are an American professional basketball team based in Denver, Colorado. The Nuggets compete in the National Basketball Association as a member club of the league's Western Conference Northwest Division.

I believe the Denver nuggets doing their best this year from the past years. They have won most games against other teams. This my opinion and please no hate.

Used to be good, but still root for them! 11! 1!

I love the Nuggets so much!

Must be in top 15

28 Charlotte Hornets The Charlotte Hornets are an American professional basketball team based in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Hornets compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Southeast Division.

32 Sacramento Kings

LOL the KINGS are lower than the FRICKING BOBCATS and they were trash in their,like 17 yeard

This team has Seth Curry! (Stephen's brother) Who has taken his skill close to Stephen Curry. I think the Kings need to be in the top 10, lol.

THey will break the Warriors record

They have Rajon Rondo in his prime!

33 Seattle Supersonics The Seattle SuperSonics, commonly known as the Sonics, were an American professional basketball team based in Seattle, Washington.
