In response to Fiercest34's comment:
Every NBA superstar's dream is to win a championship.
And saying that 17 is not necessarily the winningest is just dumb because 17 is greater than 16.
The LA Lakers don't even have 16 championships. 5 of the 16 came from Minneapolis. Obviously you have not been to Staples Center. When you look up, at the rafters of Staples, you'll only see 12 banners hanging.
Somebody stole the other 4 banners?
Ummmm.. we are arguing about franchises. Now you have to resort to NBA superstars? have to move the goalpost again?
Every franchise's dream is to avoid a 2-decade drought or miss the playoffs for 6 consecutive years.
And "dumb" is not a fact, it's an adjective you use, i.e. opinion. If you have no fact but opinion, I don't worry about it. It's nothing more than saying, "you are dumb", "no, you are dumber", "you are dumber", "you are the dumbest"....
And now you have to resort to LA Lakers? Tell me, I am arguing for the Lakers, why would LA matter?
And you still haven't cite the rule that # championships == # banners hung. Oh, are you going to tell me the # championship banners hung at Chesapeake Arena (by the Thunder) and at Power Balance Arena (by the Kings)? ARe you telling me the Thunder franchise (formerly the Sonics) and the Kings franchise (the formerly Royals) have never won a championship?
That's because some of the owners that bought the team don't want to associate their current team with the old team from another city.
It's simple, the Bulls have 6 championships and they have 6 banners hanging. The Spurs 4 championships, 4 banners. You Laker trolls keep claiming you have 16 championships and yet you don't want to talk about the 60s. I mean the Lakers won 5 of their 16 championships in the 1950s.
Every morning before you go to work, you come here to antagonize Celtic fans. Your day is not complete if you can't say anything bad about the Celtics?
