Let's be honest, 16 titles (1 shy of the record and 10 since the merger), most finals (10 more than Boston), most regular season wins, most playoff wins, highest regular season winning percentage, highest playoff winning percentage (a guess but probably true), only 6 missed postseasons in 67 seasons is the GOAT Franchise.

Since when do finals appearances where you didn't win count for anything??? More finals appearances for LA with 1 less title means you guys failed more times on the biggest stage.

My Suns have a better chance at winning than these 2 teams.

Thread should've ended after the number of championships were stated.

This. Unless you want to count 2011 finals as a positive for lebron...
Boston is just the best sport city in america, no shame in being second to the celtics.

Yea the Celtics had a rough 10-15 year stretch from mid 90's to their recent run which started in 08. A lot of bad luck during that stretch whether is was not hitting on the Duncan Lotto despite having 2 picks within the top 3, Reggie Lewis and Bias passing away. Not sure many franchises could easily rebound from that. As for going forward I'm not sure why some are predicting doom and gloom for the C's. They've seem liked they cashed in generously with their rebuild and have the necessary assets to turn it around quicker than one would expect. Both franchises are rebuilding but seems like Boston has more certainty going forward, LA probably has another coaching change around the corner.

lol Boston (and all of New England really) cares more about the Patriots, Bruins and Red Sox than they do the Celtics.
