It clearly takes a village. Jordan was already a force to be reckoned with in the late eighties, but it wasn’t until Pippen, Grant and Kukoc stepped onto the court that the championships started rolling in.

With seventeen total Championships, the Celts are the most decorated franchise of all time. However, none of the big stars ever averaged over thirty points a season (Bird got pretty close at 29.9 in the 1987-88 season), again exemplifying the power of a rounded team effort.

It’s also interesting to see how the unparalleled run of wins in the sixties tapers out into the double decade drought that began in the mid-eighties.

Many of the biggest names in the history of the sport were dressed in gold. With sixteen wins, the Lakers fall just one shy of Boston, and once again the championships coincide more closely with the clusters than the peaks.

Some of the team’s best played in the 60′s, but due to Celtic domination, Baylor, West and Chamberlain didn’t take the finals until quite late in their careers.

The thought of the Knicks bringing home the gold seems somewhat far fetched, but apparently it actually happened in ’70 and ’73. The days of Clydesanity must have been pretty exciting.
