NBA – Teams with most titles

When we think of household names in basketball, two teams come to mind. They are the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics. Both those teams have won the most number of NBA championships (17) and they are still going strong. With the likes of LeBron James at the Lakers and a young core of superstars like Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown with the Celtics, expect the two teams to add a few more titles to their collection soon. We can’t forget how great the Golden State Warriors have been over the last decade when they single-handedly ran riot through the league. And of course, the great Chicago Bulls of the 90’s with the likes of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen at the helm.
