Who is your favorite out of these all time greats?

LA Lakers

LA Lakers

The LA Lakers are one of the most decorated teams in the history of the NBA. However, they're a little inconsistent; they hold the record for the most appearances in the finals, but they've lost nearly as many times as they've won. If you're looking for a rollercoaster ride, this is the team for you — an all-out attack that might leave you disappointed when the defense lets you down - or could very well have you experiencing the highest of sports highs!

Philadelphia 76ers

Philadelphia 76ers

What the 76ers may lack in terms of being real Championship contenders, they more than make up for with a huge amount of fan support. The city of Philadelphia are known for the sort of passion they have for all of their sports teams — and their basketball franchise is no exception. If you're the sort of fan who treats each game like Game 7, and you're not afraid to raise your voice, the 76ers are for you!

Chicago Bulls

Chicago Bulls

The Chicago Bulls were wholly dominant in the 1990s, proving to be the definitive NBA franchise of the decade. The early 2000s haven't been quite as prosperous a period for fans, but their fortunes are beginning to change. If you're looking to see a past master return to the heights of their glory years, you should invest in a Bulls jersey as soon as possible and sharpen those horns!

Boston Celtics

Boston Celtics

The Celtics have more NBA Championships under their belt than any other franchise, but in recent years they've struggled to reach the heights that they have in the past. That said, the Boston faithful still manage to keep the faith that their fortunes will change — next season, that is. These are the champions of the past, and perhaps the future. If you're looking to climb back to the top with a storied team, look no further!

Charlotte Hornets

Charlotte Hornets

After a twelve year spell as the Bobcats, the Charlotte Hornets are now back and set to make an immediate impact. It's a classic underdog story; the rarely fancied franchise look like they might just surprise everyone come the end of the season. They're a great side who are definitely going to exceed expectations come the end of this season; now is a perfect time to get on the bandwagon as they rise to the top of the crop!

Miami Heat

Miami Heat

While the Miami Heat may be relatively fresh faces compared to many other NBA franchises, they've spent their quarter-century history racking up an array of accolades that any team would be delighted with. The Heat straddle the boundary between underdog and champ, and having contested the Championship every year for the past five years, they're no strangers to putting on a show for their many fans. If you're looking for a modern mainstay with just enough back-n-forth to keep it interesting, then the Heat is on for you my friend!

Brooklyn Nets

Brooklyn Nets

The Nets seem renewed after their return to New York in 2012. It seems strange to say that a team with such strong financial backing is an underdog, but the Brooklyn-based franchise has a grittiness about them that you can't help but support. The Nets have managed to establish themselves as a credible threat over the past couple of years — any fan willing to travel with them onto the next step of their journey will be in for a rollercoaster ride, for sure!

Indiana Pacers

Indiana Pacers

The Indiana Pacers are perennial contenders, even if it was back in the days of the NBA that they last won a Championship. Despite that, the past two years have seen the franchise win two consecutive division titles — can it really be long before they win the big one? If you're looking for an old-school team that looks destined to reclaim their former glory - we've got the perfect pick for you!
