    You cannot be the best, when you have less titles than Boston and are 3-10 alltime vs Boston in the finals.

    No way.

    You definitely cannot be the best when it takes 23 years to win another championship. Cool  Imagine how boring the basketball season was for Celtic fans waiting for the team to be relevant again. That is plain embarassing and pathetic. It really is no wonder that all true die-hard Boston Celtic fans are either living in nursing homes or are dead.

    23 years! Wow, talk about being irrelevant and hopeless. But as I said earlier on another forum, it's the Bulls who are our rivals in the east. 6 championships in the REAL NBA, you know the one where the playoffs consisted of 3 conference rounds and then the FINALS!

    The loston smeltics I believe may be second....in the east. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    LakerNation32 - Excellent point. The Bulls are the last team to win back back titles, and unlike the Celtics, they have done it within the last 40 years. Laughing

    I agree with all of your basketball comments. The metro population of Boston is over 4 million however. This would still make it indeed much smaller than LA. Another website said if you add Manchester, Worcester, and Providence the market would be over 7 million.

    Let's not forget the 5 won by MN.  And, since avenger thinks Foxboro isn't part of Boston, then they won 6 more in Inglewood.  That means only 5 in LA.  Personally, I think it's all bs, but lakersavenger wants us to all play nicely and have civilized discussisons....and HE says Foxboro is not Boston, so.........I can say Inglewood is not LA right?

    I mean, they should have been called the Los Angeles Lakers of Inglewood..can't wait to see what football team they steal next.  I would imagine, if it were the Steelers, they would take the 6 Super Bowls won by the Steelers and proclaim themselves better than the Pats before they even play a game.

    Great to see another Celtic fan realizing that most championships != the best.

    # championships in the NFL:

    Packers 13
    Bears 9
    Giants 7
    Steelers 6

    See, most championship doesn't equate to the best. You obviously disregard the # championships won in the Jurassic era. It's the modern (SB) era that counts.

    * First we got Fierce recognizing the Lakers' championship in the NBL (1947-48), giving them 17.
    * Then we got Hedley recognizing # championships doesn't mean the best, by claiming that Red Auerbach (9) is better than Phil Jackson (11).
    * Now we get DoctorCO recognizing the Steelers' 6 SB championships are better than the Packers 13 championships, the Bears' 9 and the Giants' 7, with most in the Jurassic era (Packers 9, Bears 8, Giants 4)...

    So no matter how you folks cut it, you acknowledge that the Celtics aren't the best...

    Once LA ties up the head to head NBA finals match up, then they can stake their claim.

    To do that all they have to do is beat the Celtics in the finals....seven times in a row!

    Good luck.

    Majicmvp,

    son do you know sports!!!! guess not let me school you....

    1. In regards to the nfl. Go on anything nfl related..The thing which is used to pick the best team is SB'S won. In the NFL they do not list NFL or AFL title wins above SB'S. The SB is what the league uses when it merged. The only title which matters in the nfl is the SB. The nfl does not say on the same line. Steelers with sb wins and other wins...ITS JUST THE SB...THATS IT.....
    Remember son, im going by the league and not what a sports writer wishes or the size of the city and the title together. ITS THE LEAGUE..that matters..The nfl merged and for since the BOWL HAS BEEN USED. that is the mechanism. Look on the site, and the sb gets preference...
    SO ON THAT POINT YOUR OWNED...

    2. The nbdl or nbl did not go right away into the nba. The nba started as a stand alone business not involved with past versions. Who are you to judge an era?..YOUR NOT THE LEAGUE...The league doesnt follow you. I DONT GO BY YOUR jurassic and modern...THE LEAGUE doesnt value titles. I ll do what the league says...NOT what you thing. Because its the NBA..and a title won is a title won. IT DOESNT MATTER WHEN..

    you cant judge time. sports leagues didnt just appear when you wanted it. If it wasnt for russell and wilt THERE WOULD BE NO NBA....You cant judge the past for not having internet and twitter. YOUR saying that you can judge time when you say jurassic and modern. YOU dont have the smarts to say that. The league started when it did. The nba title is the same. BECAUSE THE LEAGUE SAYS SO...

    not some sports writer or internet junkys rules.....THE NBA MAKES THE CALL..and its most rings won......

    Not most rings won before 1877 on tuesday but not after 3 pm. YOU Trolls have to know your role and just stop...

    Re: Lakers universally acclaimed as the NBA'S greatest franchise

    majjic mvp,

    heres from the nfl....

    Super Bowl Championship (1966 – present)

    (The creation of Super Bowl was the first sign of AFL-NFL merger. The first four Super Bowls served as intra-league championship games because of these intra-league championship games this created some confusion amongst football fans that there was an special World Championship series in the pre-merger era. After the merger, the Super Bowl became the NFL's championship game.Since there is this has .

    The number in the parentheses is the total number of Super Bowl championships and the bolded number in parentheses is the total number of league championships.)

     

    Heres what this means...

     

    The afl title counts like a bonus....BUT the title which matters is the SB because the league uses the SB which is a system which is in service. While past titles are a fixed number and cant be moved...

     

    So a team will have bowl wins listed first...then titles listed second. The titles can not be grouped together...

     

    there listed as separate wins.
