Series Win/Loss Records by franchises in the history of the NBA Finals Series the only argument i can see you coming up with is: "BUT DANNYC, WHEN'S THE LAST TIME THE CELT'S WON? 20 YEARS AGO?" true. But does that mean i can turn to you and say "Well, that means the yankees arent the best team in baseball cause they havent won a title in 7 years."? I dont think so. Titles are eveything. Yankees are *(i hate to say this)* the best franchise in baseball. But - equally - the Celtics are the best franchise in basketball. Sorry but I had to make this post. Knick fans and lakers fans and bulls fans are starting to piss me off.
