Basketball is a game for a few but a passion for many. It’s a sport that not only demands physical stamina but involves spontaneity, calculation, and quick decision-making skills. To basket a ball is no easy joke; it takes years of practice to shape one’s athletic skills to excel at the game. As far as the NBA is concerned, it is a 65-year legacy that has made millions of fans and basketball aspirants love the sport with their heart and soul. With 30 teams competing for the championship title, it is one of North America’s four professional sports leagues. It is every team’s dream to win the championship yet only the best can succeed. Here we have clubbed 5 of the best NBA teams based on their number of wins.
1. Boston Celtics
Boston Celtics take the pride in owning the most NBA championships in the history of the league. Formed in the year 1946, the Boston based basketball team has also made a record of winning 8 consecutive times in a row. Though their last win was nearly 12 years back in 2008, Boston Celtics is a remarkable team as it has contributed a lot to the greatness of the NBA.
2. Los Angeles Lakers
