11. 1985-86 Boston Celtics
Boston had a majestic season for a number of reasons. First and foremost was their extraordinary home record. They landed an epic 40 wins, an NBA record until the San Antonio Spurs equaled it in 2016. Their big three front-court of Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, and Robert Parish is one of the greatest ever.
The Celtics went 67-15 this year, an excellent overall record. However, they’re not higher up this list because their Finals’ opponent, the Houston Rockets, lacked championship experience. Still, though, it was a fantastic overall year for them and one that remains legendary.
