Since the Boston Celtics dynasty of the 60's, there have only been a handful of teams that have made three-straight NBA finals:
LA Lakers (Magic/Kareem/Worthy)
Detroit Pistons (Isiah/Dumars/Laimbeer/Rodman)
Chicago Bulls (Jordan/Pippen/Grant)
Chicago Bulls (Jordna/Pippen/Rodman/Harper)
LA Lakers (Shaq/Kobe)
LA Lakers (Kobe/Gasol)
Those six rosters (well.... three teams with 6 different core groups) all made it to three-straight NBA finals. Where does the Miami Heat rank among those teams? And which of those teams was the best?
I'm allowing multiple votes for this one. Pick ONLY THREE teams. We'll see who gets the most and where Miami falls on the list.
As awesome as the Heat are, I think I would give them the lowest ranking of the group. I think their lack of a C would kill them against each of the LAL teams and the Detroit team. Detroit's front court just ate up EVERY rebound! And their defense...
The Bulls teams are interesting. I think the Jordan/Pippen/Rodman team would beat the Heat, but the Heat would match up well with the Jordan/Pippen/Grant team. That would be the team I'd think the Heat would have the best chance against.
What do you think?
EDIT: Sorry, I forgot to include Boston (85, 86 and 87). Leave comments below for them.
