    Lakers are the only franchise to play in the finals every decade. 8 straight decades they have been to the finals.

    Come to think of it, that's really quite an achievement! Finding a way to lose in the finals every decade is not an easy thing to do.

    They lose in the finals just as much as they win the finals.

    I would rather get there with a chance to win then not get there at all.

    Hey morons, you have to get to the Finals in order to win them!

    Since the Sacramento Kings, among others, have never been to the Finals, they therefore have an unblemish record.  How about them Spurs and Bulls, a combined 10-0 in the Finals.  They should be the best franchises, not the Celtics or Lakers.  Furthermore, after these Finals, the Heat will be a perfect 2-0, a much better percentage than Boston or LA.

    You want prominent losing?  How about the Mighty Celtics between the seasons 1995-1996 and 2000-2001 when they missed the playoffs all six of those seasons and posted a stellar .378 winning percentage.  Think about it, in a league where half the teams make the playoffs, the Great Celtics failed to qualify 6 years in a row!!!

    [QUOTE]Wow! In the 1960s they lost a ton to the Celtics in the Finals. Didn't do much better in the 70s either, lost to the Knicks in 1970 and 1973. They improved in the 80s going 5-3 in the Finals. Went 0-1 in the Finals in the 90s. And in the 2k era lost to the Pistons and Celtics in the Finals.

    Boston: 1987-2007.......no championships and from 1988 they couldn't muster a single Finals appearance.

    That's right folks, not a single Finals appearance!

    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

    Rock solid logic. I am sure that stat has nothing at all to do with that fact that the Lakers have made far more finals appearances than anyone else in the league. IMO there's not a team in the league that wouldn't trade their first round exit for a finals appearance (win or lose) any day. 

    Not knocking the Celtics, but defending sanity.

    I have to agree that this a very flawed thread.  Many teams would have been thankful to have made it to the finals every decade.  You can't expect to win everytime that you make it to the NBA finals.  Some franchises would just be happy to make it to the NBA finals a few times.
