Boston Celtics vs. Los Angeles Lakers: Which Is the NBA's Greatest Franchise?
Larry Bird and Magic Johnson

“The Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics always win. It’s time for other NBA teams to win a championship.”

Such is the sentiment of many basketball fans of other franchises. This attitude, however, is simply a reflection of the success of the Celtics and Lakers.

After all, these two teams have won 33 of the 65 championships in league history (greater than 50 percent). In addition, either the Lakers or Celtics have been in the Finals 40 times.

Clearly, when it comes to winning, these franchises know what they are doing.

After an intriguing debate of Larry Bird vs. Magic Johnson, featured columnists Rich Fernandes and Ethan S have taken things to a new level with this classic debate between the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers.
