In the past 32 years, there have only been 9 different teams that have won the championship. This means that since 1980, one new team joins this group every 3 and a half years...........on average. Since Miami is already in this group, the number of teams would not change in this 33rd year. If OKC wins, they'll be the 10th. I know it's a meaningless fact, but how concentrated has the talent been in this league for so long? Here are the 10 teams:
Lakers
Celtics
Philly
Houston
Chicago
S.A.
Det.
Miami

Damn - I didn't realize Lakers had 10 since 1980 - impressive. Glad we stole a few from them!

I always thought this was of the biggest shortcomings of judging a player by how many championships he won.

This thread isn't judging a player - it's judging teams though.

This thread isn't judging a player - it's judging teams though.Fair enough. The numbers definitely reveals how well the Thunder done with excellent management, excellent player development and some luck.

I think it's just as revealing which teams made it to the finals during that timespan:

WEST:
Lakers 16
Rockets 4
Spurs 4
Blazers 2
Jazz 2
Mavericks 2
Thunder/Sonics 2
Suns 1

EAST:
Celtics 7
Bulls 6
Pistons 5
76ers 4
Heat 3
Knicks 2
Magic 2
Nets 2
Cavaliers 1
Pacers 1

55% of the time it's Celtics, Bulls or Pistons in the East and 72% of the time it's the Lakers, Rockets or Spurs in the West.

Are you drunk?:eyebrow: I'm not questioning that the playoffs serve as an important measurement. Nonetheless, if a great player is drafted/traded to a team that does not have the capability to build teams or develop talent, then that player will not win a championship no matter how good he is and it's exacerbated by a small group of teams historically winning most of the championships.
