The NBA Finals. It remains a long time with only 1 fresh winner since the 1979 season among the last 31 titles (including the 2009-2010 World Champion NBA Finals winning Lakers) all going to only 7 different teams (plus the momentary shake-up of Miami Heat in 2005-2006) have been winners including the Los Angeles Lakers 10 times and the Chicago Bulls 6 times. In fact, 33 (52%) of the 64 champions since 1947 are the Celtics (17) and Lakers (16).
