Which fans have been the most spoiled over the past 22 years?
 
By spoiled, I mean in terms of having the combination of great players, great coaching, most opportunities for rings, etc. Nothing derogatory towards the fans either. I think I'd rank it like this...
  1. Lakers (tail end of Magic, Prime Shaq, Kobe, Gasol, coached by Phil Jackson)
  2. Bulls (Jordan, Pippen, Rodman, coached by Phil Jackson, now Rose)
  3. Celtics (tail end of Bird/Parish/McHale, then KG, Pierce, Allen, Rondo)
  4. Rockets (Hakeem, Drexler, Barkley, Yao Ming, T-Mac)
  5. Spurs (Robinson, Duncan, Horry, Ginobili, Parker, coached by Popovich)
  6. Heat (Wade, Shaq, Mourning, coached by Pat Riley, now LeBron and Bosh)
  7. Jazz (Stockton, Malone, DWilliams, coached by Jerry Sloan)

Would move the Spurs up.

But yeah, the Lakers always seem to be somewhere in the mix of things.

so basically what are best teams of the last 22 years?

i'd argue Jazz fans to be the most frustrated, only put together 2 finals runs in all those stockton-malone years and lost both times

Lakers and Spurs. They've been great for the longest time.

Bulls had a long down period after Jordan, and only recently got good again. Celtics were bad a long time too after Bird, then with the Len Bias and Reggie Lewis tragedies.

Jazz, Heat, and Rockets have had no where near the success of the top teams.

OKC

Given a team

Top team after only a few years

Most of their fans don't even know about the SuperSonics.

Lakers and its not even a discussion. They've always been great, good, or in playoff contention. ALWAYS.
