If you know as much about these all-time greats as you think you do, then this quiz will be a slam dunk. In the words of a quasi-famous shoe company, "Just do it."

Which is the greatest franchise in NBA history?

It's a question that hoops fans are passionate about: Which organization is the greatest franchise in NBA history? Although there are valid arguments to be made for teams like the Chicago Bulls, the San Antonio Spurs, or the Golden State Warriors, generally, it comes down to either the Boston Celtics or the Los Angeles Lakers. Both franchises have been around for more than 70 years. Both teams have won 17 championships. Their historic rosters are filled with some of the greatest to ever play the game. The Lakers had Kareem, Magic, Kobe, and LeBron. The Celtics had Larry Bird, Bob Cousy, Kevin McHale, and John Havlicek. Both organizations had legendary coaches managing the players. One thing that sets the franchises apart is the cities they've called home. Since their formation in 1946, the Celtics have always hung their hat in Boston. But the Lakers haven't always been found in Los Angeles. The franchise originally started in Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes. But in 1960, the franchise moved to La-La Land and gave the NBA its first West Coast team.
