    In 67 years, only 17 franchises have won an NBA title.

    1. Lakers
    2. Kings (Royals)
    3. Sixers (Nationals)
    4. Warriors
    5. Hawks

    That was the first 8 seasons.

    Then it took 12 years for a new team to win.

    6. Knicks
    7. Bucks
    8. Blazers
    9. Bullets
    10. Sonics (Thunder)

    Another 8-year stretch saw five new teams win, and the Celtics and Warriors add a couple more to their count.

    Then another ten years for a new team to win.

    11. Pistons
    12. Bulls
    13. Rockets
    14. Spurs

    89-99 saw four different teams, all new, win titles.

    Then.... it was seven seasons before a newbie was added.

    15. Heat
    16. Mavs
    17. Cavs


    And it looks like it will be a few more before anybody new is added to that list. The Cavs and Warriors are at the top of their conferences, with the Spurs close behind. The Celtics re-build has gone well. All these teams have already won.



    67 years. 17 winners. Seems like a bit of a disparity.

    I'm curious, what is your take/point here? You started a thread with a fact but no point and no position other then, "the best teams sure have won a lot".

    I'm just curious what people think. I realize that some of the 30 teams currently in the NBA have not been in the league as long as others (Bobcats/Hornets, Grizz, Raptors for example), but expansion teams like Dallas and Miami have managed to win inside their first 30 years.

    The titles keep seem to pooling to the same franchises. Like there is a pattern. I'll gladly concede that the GSW's are an anomaly in that they won one title in Philly, and then one in the 70's in San Fran, and didn't win again for like 40 years, and the Bulls/Spurs getting into a winning cycle is a fair pattern, but give that 2 teams (Lakers and Celtics) have comprised almost half of the league's titles in 67 years, it seems like there is a pattern here, and not one that is healthy for the league.

    Small market teams struggle to succeed.

    I didn't want to colour anybody's opinion, so I just made it a statement of fact to see what some responses might be.

    Bucks won a championship pretty fast. Established in '68 and won it all in '70/'71. Other then the early years when the league just formed and one of the few teams won it first season. If Kareem would of stuck around longer we should of had a couple more trophies. Oh well.

    This is what happens when a league is run by simple minded people. Parity would be far more profitable, but the league is too comfortable with the status quo to make the necessary adjustments to put the NBA on the NFL's level in terms of gross revenue.

    Mavs shouldn't have a title but Le-Con did his thing. Avg under 2pts in 4 striaght 4th qtrs.

    Or i can flip it, & say well maybe if Wade didn't go to the free throw line 97 times in the 2006 Finals, maybe the Mavs might have won one then. Lol

    That doesn't sound that bad actually. What sounds bad is how many tiles have been won by how many teams.

    Kinda. I wonder how it compares to NFL/MLB/NHL over the same span.

    Good. One of the biggest reasons I watch NBA is because its the best team that wins. None of that random crap like other sports.

    Also, in this era any team that gets talent players will go to. Look how fast the Warriors turned it around after being irrelevant It's not like before when big market was the main idea..

    The 'best' teams get railroaded by officials all the time in favour of big-market teams.

    The Celtics are an exception. They've won so much despite not really getting the preferential treatment that LAL and Chi-town got when they were juggernauts. Portland beat Shaq's Lakers. The Kings beat Shaq's Lakers. But officials hammered those teams.

    So let's not pretend like the 'best' team always wins.

    Is there always going to be two thirds of the league with a 30-year drought? And half the league with no banners at all?

    That's the most glaring.
