Default "Team of the Decade"

So im listening to the Suns/Spurs game and they're talking about how the Spurs are UNQUESTIONABLY the team of the decade, and at this point yes, perhaps they are... but that can change very quickly.

Lets say for a second that the Lakers win the title (No im not jumping the gun im just throwing it out there). That would give them 4 titles all IN this decade as well as a 3peat. Spurs have not even won a back to back.

Would that not put the Lake Show over the top?

And we missed the playoffs that one year entirely. We had the DYNASTY but not the best winning % etc.

But I really don't care...I just want to have more championships the the evil Celtics before this decade is said and done! We got two more to go!!!

GO LAKES!!!!!!!!

Team of the decade should be based on Championships... not missing the playoffs. if anything we should get props for winning 3... and building a new team to get back so quickly.

Settle down Crash, no one is taking anything away from the Lakers for winning 3 in a row.

The Spurs have been a great team for 7 years in this decade while the Lakers have been great for 4 years. SA has been more consistant and thats why most consider that they are the team of the decade.

At the end of the day they both had good runs. Who really cares that some people say SA and some say LAL is the team of the decade right now?

But it also should be based on consistency. I think even if the lakers so win another title, you have to factor in how consistent the Spurs have been year in and year out. They have been title contenders each and every year since they won their first title. Spurs really are the team of the decade because of their winning championships AND they have been a threat to win it every year. I dont know of a more consistent team since the bulls. I mena, Lakers will the in the talks of team of the decade if we win a title, but overall, it goes to the spurs

The spurs did amazing things.

The amazing thing is when they lost one year, they were able to recover and win again and that takes a lot of confidence and hard work as well as commitment to playing your role.

The lakers won 3 in a row but after that we changed our entire team.

We don't have the same team that consistently won or made it far for consecutive seasons.

Where as the spurs basically got past the first round every decade, won 4 championships that expand over 8 years of dominating and keeping the same core.

Lakers won 3 in a row, lost the next 2 years, totally rebuilt this team and missed the playoffs, and we got eliminated these past 2 years and just recently got us the last missing piece we needed to get over the hump.

Spurs were able to dominate most of this decade with the same core basically.

Los Angeles is probably in the running for team of the decade, second place for sure, but i would give that title to san antonio over and over again.
