But that takes nothing away from their phenomenal run which is probably the greatest run of success in U.S. team sports history.

New York Yankees 1921-1964:  29 World Series appearances in 43 years.  20 Championships.  1 Four-peat, 1 Five-peat
Boston Celtics 1956-1969: 12 NBA Finals appearances in 13 years.  11 Championships.  8 consecutive Championships (1958-1965)
The difference in those incredible runs is no free agency back then.  That's a huge difference.

Yes.  And also the fact that there were about half as many teams in the leagues, one or two rounds of playoffs and a decent percentage of great players were not allowed to play.

The winning in Boston has been nothing short of incredible. ALL four major sports teams battle for their championships every year in making the playoffs and getting into the title game. Sort of makes up for all the losing when I lived in the city back in 1970.

Peace

It gets better in our house.  We're BC hockey fans.  So add four more titles to the total.

In mine its Boston University with some ⁵partiality towards BC. Once took an accounting class at Boston State is that school still around? I think BU won a title in that time frame right.

Like Obama would say, Raelly! I'm on ignore now, well my sister graduated from BU and I had a thing with her really hot
roommate. A close cousin graduated from BU as well, ahh if the college has Boston in I don't mind rooting for them. Except the women's lacrosse championship has MD vs BC and in that one I'm rooting for Maryland. My daughter graduated from there and I played summer basketball at Cole Field House years ago.

Peace
