20. 1995-96 Utah Jazz
If Michael Jordan had stayed retired, then this could be a whole different situation. This was a classic Jazz side with the legendary Karl Malone and John Stockton in top form. But this wasn’t a two-man team, they were all fantastic but fell short of winning the biggest prize in basketball.
They won 64 games on the way to the Finals but lost to the Chicago Bulls. Don’t let that fool you though, this was a team worthy of respect. Sure, the postseason matters more but it’s not always fair to judge an entire season off of it.
