Greatest Chicago Championship Team Ever

So many good options to choose from. I'm curious to see where our 2010 Hawks rank among the past champion teams.

Bulls dynasty with MJ is the best.

Repeat 3 peat. Phil Jackson shown clipping his nails during the playoffs. But I voted for the Hawks.

Sox...last (Cubs fan). Come at me.

I can't wait to watch David Price pitch a Game 1 WS gem in 2017.

The 72-10 team was the best team.

I think that 05 Sox team doesn't get the respect it deserves(d). Some of the best starting pitching seen in a long time. Lost 1 GAME in the entire playoffs. Beat Clemens, Pettite, Oswalt, and some other guy in 4 games to win the World Series. Podsednik had some of the most dominating on base presence i've ever seen.

Podsednik-Rowand-Dye
Crede-Uribe-Iguchi-Konerko
Pierzynski

Buerhle, Garland, Contreras, Garcia
Marte, Cotts, Politte
Jenks

Don't really follow BB so Sox '05 for me. On a side note, best and most exciting game I've ever seen was game 3 against Boston.

Love the Hawks and it was greatest moment as sport fan to see them win cup but Chicago in 1996 watching that Bulls team was something

Everyone around country watched that team in awe as it dominated

96 was against the Seattle Supersonics right? Weren't the Bulls up 3-0 in that series and lost 3 in a row?

I was a HUGE Bulls fan throughout the dynasty, who wasn't? It's probably one of them but to pick is so hard. Yeah, it's easy to pick the 72-10 team because of the record. Personally, I most enjoyed the 93 championship run, the Knicks series, Paxson's game winner in the finals against a team with Barkley in complete beast mode. The Hawks team was dominating though, in the same way the Bulls were. It's really tough to choose.

The Hawks weren't even the 1st seed in the West. The Bulls set an all time NBA record.

I'm not denying that Bulls team, it is probably the answer. I haven't even voted though; I don't think I can.

11-1 in the playoffs. Enough said!

Let's be honest though, it's probably the 85 Bears. 15-1 and absolutely steam rolled teams in the playoffs.

Bulls don't do it for me. It's a league about having 1 or 2 dominate teams, and in the end they had the best player ever and that's why they won. Gimme the 25 or 53 man squad over the 12 (but more like 9) man one.

72-10 and is ridiculous. If that Bears team went undefeated I would have picked them, but alas, they did not.

As for the last very stupid choice, I wish I could find the pic with Ernie next to an empty table...

That's crap logic.

15-1 = .938
72-10 = .878

Bears had a better regular season record. In the regular season and playoffs combined, only 1 team has won the same amount of games, and they didn't win the title.

It is not crap logic. The only reason you say so is that you do not agree with it. How many teams in the NBA have won 70 games in a season? How many teams have had 14-2 and 15-1 records?

We get it. You don't like basketball (I am not that big a fan myself besides the Bulls); however, I think most would agree 72-10 is more impressive.

Also, I said that about the Bears because it is hard to discredit an undefeated season. It would still be a tough choice between the two even if the Bears did not lose that game against Miami though.

Teams winning 14+ games in the NFL isn't that uncommon.

Winning over 70 NBA games is, considering the Bulls are the only team to do it.

Almost none. And 14-2 isn't 15-1 so I don't get why you would lump them together.

In the end, the 85 Bears had a better regular season record and a better postseason (not talking record cuz all Super Bowl winners go undefeated, but they were more dominate the whole way through) than the 96 Bulls. The numbers don't lie.

If the White Sox went 130-32 this year would they be less dominant than the Bears too?
