So many winning streaks throughout sports have been nothing short of impressive, but nothing comes close to The Boston Celtics winning eight straight NBA Championships

Think about all of this and here is why I say this.

#1 NO TEAM in NFL History has won three straight Super Bowls and even in the pre Super Bowl era nobody won THAT many in a row.

#2 The most World Series ever won in a row is 5 by the Yankees from 1949-1953, eclipsing when they won from 1936-1939. It's impressive if somebody three peats like when the A's did it from 1972-1974. Nobody has three peated or even repeated since the Yankees won their third straight in 2000. NO TEAM in N.L. History has EVER three peated and even then only THREE TEAMS in N.L. history have even repeated as World Series champs- the 1907-1908 Chicago Cubs, the 1921-1922 New York Giants, and the 1975-1976 Cincinnati Reds.

#3 Some would argue that the Stanley Cup is the hardest championship to win in all of sports and I see a case. No team has repeated since the Red Wings in 1998. The Montreal Canadiens once won five in a row. I believe they also had a four in a row run. The New York Islanders from 1979-1983 won four consecutive Stanley Cups before the Edmonton Oilers won five in seven years.

#4 The NBA has seen its share of three peats- the Bulls did it twice, the Lakers did it in the early 2000's and have a chance this year. The Bulls very well could have challenged this in the 90's. Don't say it was because Michael Jordan wasn't around either. The Bulls still made the Eastern Conference Finals in 1994 without him before bowing out to the Knicks and when Jordan returned the next year with #45 they lost to the Magic. They came so close with six in eight years but it did not happen.

I conclude that it is hard to win a championship. It is even harder to repeat. To repeat three times, four times, and even five times shows you have a place amongst the greatest dynasties in sports history and you are no doubt the best. Eight repeats is just absurd and is unprecedented that no one has managed achieve besides those great Bill Russell-led Celtics teams.
