Last night, the San Anotonio Spurs finished their sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers to win their fourth NBA championship since 1999.
First, I would like to say congratulations for a job well done. The Spurs play great fundamentally sound basketball and it wins them championships.
Are they the best NBA team in history?
Well, they are one of only four teams to win at least four championships. The other teams are the Chicago Bulls, Boston Celtics, and Los Angeles Lakers. Speaking of that last team… the Lakers won three championships in a row from 2000-2002. If they hadn’t split up Shaq and Kobe would the Spurs have won the next few championships?
What do you think? Are the Spurs the best NBA team ever? Are the Lakers the best NBA team ever? How about Larry Bird’s Boston Celtics or Michael Jordan’s Bulls?
