    Koberulz- The Lakers dominate both the NBA, the popularity stakes, players choice of destination and of course this board. When celtic Robert Parrish was spoken to about domination he stated " When you talk about dominance, you have to talk about the Lakers."

    yep.....the East had been the beast since the shot clock came into play.......the tide shifted after many years.....also, you forgot the shot clock era started in the '50's...during the second half of the decade the East won 4 of 5 if I'm not mistaken...the only time they lost....? ...to the Hawks (who would move into the East when Phoenix entered the league as an expansion team).....oh, almost forgot.....Russell was injured in the Finals that year.....

    Alas poor boston and it's sorry record of having missed the playoffs a staggering 16 times will forever be a weight around their neck. When you consider that 16 misses is 3 times that of which the Lakers have done puts the outstanding record of the Lakers into perspective. Boston should not be ashamed of being universally acknowledged as number #2, but the Lakers are indeed the greatest.

    Care to explain boston's pathetic record from 1988-2007???? No excuses, what happened? Oh yeah, they failed miserably!

    Boston 2006-07     24-58
    Boston 1996-97    15-67

    1996-2001 Did not qualify for the playoffs!  These years alone are more than the Lakers have missed in their entire history!!!

    Truly a sad and pathetic record. Nevermind, you guys were good in an 8-team league lmao!!!

    The Boston Celtics won their first NBA championship in 1957.

    The Los Angeles Lakers, not the Minneapolis Lakers, won their first NBA championship in 1972. That means the Lakers have 11 NBA championship banners hanging on the rafters of Staples Center.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Lakers universally acclaimed as the NBA'S greatest franchise : Since when did I say the Lakers have 17 championships? Didn't I tell you that the NBL championship does not count as an NBA championship. But you keep insisting the Lakers have 17 championships because I said so. So what's stopping you from telling us, again, that the Lakers have 17 championships? Tell us the Lakers have 17 championships, NOW!
    Posted by Fiercest34[/QUOTE]

    Since 6/22/2011, your own words:
    "Season 1947-48: Minneapolis Lakers (NBL)"

    Then two minutes later:
    "Looks like the Gems/Lakers failed to win a championship in 49 of their 65 seasons."

    The Gems was wrong, since it was not the predecessor of the Lakers, but the NBL Lakers were correct. It was recorded in the Lakers history. So starting from 1947-48 to 2010-11, the Lakers had 64 seasons, they failed 47 times.

    Well, NBL championship doesn't count as NBA championship? But you count 65 seasons for the Lakers, including the Lakers' 1947-48 season and incorrectly, the Gems' 1946-47 season. So you are hooked and have no way to get out...

    So you want to hear it?

    "The Lakers have 17 championships", according to Fierce, because he counted the Lakers' 1947-48 NBL season.

    You want to here it again?

    Fierce asks you to repeat saying that and you comply. Fierce commands and you follow, it's like you're Fierce's puppet. If you want to look like a fool in front of Celtic nation then be my guest.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Lakers universally acclaimed as the NBA'S greatest franchise : The Celtics have never lost to a team that came from the ABA in the Finals, that's a fact! Actually, the Celtics don't have a problem with the other teams. Only the Hawks and Lakers have beaten the Celtics in the Finals. Can't say the same for the Lakers as the Lakers have a losing record against the Knicks, Pistons, Bulls, and Celtics in the Finals.
    Posted by Fiercest34[/QUOTE]

    Oh, so you mean a loss prior to the finals is not a loss? The Celtics not losing to an ABA team in the final is a fact but I also have news for you:

    A loss in the 1st round or 2nd round or 3rd is still a loss: 2002 vs Nets, 2003 vs Nets, 2004 vs Pacers, 2005 vs Pacers

    Failing to make the playoffs is not a win either.

    So you can hide your head in the sand but a loss in the finals is better than failing to make the playoffs, true or false?

    Of course you will say false. I know you guys only want to count 12 NBA seasons for the Celtics, something like a record of 9-3...

    And think about what problems the Celtics had with the other teams. Let's start with:

    missing the playoffs 16 times.

    You should feel good that not one single team were slapping the Celtics silly to stop them from making the playoffs and save them from more playoff embarrassments. And you actually think losing records against the Knicks, Pistons, Bulls in the finals were bad...
