Default Teams that have NEVER won an NBA Championship

The list is pretty.....pretty.....pretty....pretty.....pretty long.


Depending on the threshold you want to use, here is the list:


Orlando Magic
Indiana Pacers
Charlotte Bobcats
New Jersey Nets
Toronto Raptors
Cleveland Cavaliers
Denver Nuggets
New Orleans Hornets
Memphis Grizzlies
Phoenix Suns
Utah Jazz
Los Angeles Clippers
Minnesota Timberwolves
Sacramento Kings - (only won as the Rochester Royals)
Oklahoma City Thunder - (only won as the Seattle Supersonics)
Atlanta Hawks - (have not won since move to Atlanta)
Washington Wizards - (have only won as the "Bullets")

So that's 13 - 17 teams with no championship.


And the Dallas Mavericks just came off this list this year.



NBA Champions - a very exclusive club.

And of the teams on the that list, how many have a realistic chance of winning a championship this coming season?

Just the Oklahoma City Thunder....maybe the Magic.

Only like 9 different franchises have won the title since 1980. It's pretty egregious.

Utah and Phx are the only 2 teams on that list (maybe indy) that surprise me. They are teams that are historically good. The rest of the teams have had some upswings but, really, are not what I'd call superior frnahcises.

+ you gotta take Washington off that list. Same team. Same city. Its just a different name.

NJ will never ever ever win a title. i'm 100% sure of that. (If Brooklyn wins a title does NJ come off the list?)

Since 1980

Lakers - 10
Celtics - 4
Bulls - 6
Pistons - 3
Rockets - 2
Spurs - 4
Sixers - 1
Heat - 1
Mavericks - 1

The Lakers/Celtics/Bulls/Pistons/Spurs make up 84% of the titles since 1980. So 5 teams have won 27 of the last 32 titles.

Its the hardest title to win in all of sports.

Since the 90's the championships have been dominated by the lakers and spurs. With only Miami, celtics and pistons winning since and now the mavs. Quite amazing really.

Which is why lakers not getting their 2nd 3peat shouldn't be a disgrace. For lakers to of gotten two 3 peats since 2000 which would of been so rare for sports these days.

If you look further into it, it's more about which teams were lucky enough to have the stars that were capable of winning. Lakers were lucky to have Magic/Kareem and Shaq/Kobe. Bulls were lucky to have Jordan. Spurs were lucky to have Duncan. All those players could have won in any city, just the ping pong ball landed the right way for them.
