[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Laker 8-peat : Best franchise in NBA history is subjective. But the Celtics are the winningest because they have the most championships in the NBA. [/QUOTE]
Not at all. Only if you define winningest as "most championship". The fact is, "most championship" is not necessarily defined as winningest.
Winning most games - not the Celtics
Winning most playoff games - not the Celtics
Winning most playoff series - not the Celtics
Highest winning percentage - not the Celtics
Highest playoff winning percentage - not the Celtics
Highest playoff series winning percentage - not the Celtics
These are FACTS. Dispute them.
See, it's your subjective opinion that winningest == most championships. Many other camps consider the Lakers the best because
1) they don't think winningest == most championships;
2) they don't think winningest define the best (becasue winning a championship in the bush league era != winning a championship in the big-time era; ask DoctorCO why the Steelers with 6, not the Packers with 13, rules the NFL);
2) they also consider other factors - your performance in your non-championship years, like whether you 9-peat (failing to win a playoff series) or 8-peat (losing in the finals).
Boy, you have to stop to be so simplistic.

Inferiority complex is defined with the Celtic's logo, like trashing the other team's 8-peat (of losing the finals), yet trying to whitewash its own 9-peat (of failing to get past the 1st round).
