LThe best basketball league in the world is on its anniversary and to celebrate it made a list (not without some controversy) with the best 75 players of all time. As almost always in this type of election, each one has an expert inside and thinks that there are players who should not be in it and others who are missed. But on such a long list It is difficult to leave out some of the great names in history.
Things change a bit when you have to choose the best team ever, the NBA itself has facilitated a short list of only 5 teams who for different reasons oppose being the best of the best.
It’s about the hysterical Celtics of the 60s, with 10 rings, 8 of them in a row, from the hand of Red Auerbach, Bill Russell, Bob Cousy o John Havlicek. It seems almost impossible to even match an ace palmars in such a short space of time.
magicians at 80
The following proposal are the 80s Lakers, those of the “show time”, those who made more than one of us discover the NBA thanks to the talent of Magic, Worthy or the mythical Kareem Abdul Jabbar. Maybe with the Warriors of the Splash brothers the funniest team to watch in history. A legendary dynasty that took only 5 rings for coinciding in time with the Celtics.
Again the Celtics appear on our list, the “arch enemy” of those blessed clashes with the Lakers in the 1980s.
Maybe they weren’t as spectacular as the Angelenos but thanks to the quality and la clase by Larry Bird, accompanied by Danny Ainge, Kevin McHale or Robert Parish They got 3 rings and created a community of loyal fans in Spain that lasts until today.
The following are the Jordan Bulls and its 6 rings, for many, the best team ever, among other things because they had to the best player ever. But Jordan, who did not start out surrounded by and that is why it took him so long to get his first degree, would end up with Pippen, Rodman, Kukoc, Steve Kerr…a team that marked a time in the 90.
The last proposal can still have life, They are the Warriors of Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, which will be reinforced with Durant to get 3 rings in 5 finals and that hysterical mark of 73-9 in slo 5 aos. And I say that they can continue to have life because they have had the best start of all this season, waiting for Klay and Wiseman. Will the 4th ring fall?
