  • Baker's Dozen of North American Sports Dynasties


    1. Miami Hurricanes (1983-1991)
    2. New York Yankees (1936-1939)
    3. Boston Celtics (1959-1966)

    They were so head-and-shoulders above the rest of the NBA that there really was no competition. For one thing, there was no NBA coach comperable to Red Auerbach in his era: in building fitness and conditioning into the pre-season, in selecting players to fit a team-first model, in setting aside his ego in order to get the most out of his players. Truth be told, those Celtics teams were the only NBA crew in a sea of glorified little-leaguers.

    4. New York Islanders (1980-1984)
    Stanley Cup Champions 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984










    I'm a Rangers' fan ( ) but I've got to really admire those Isles' teams ("Potvin Sucks!") They had all the tools: speed, good puck skills, solid coaching, defensive discipline, goaltending, but they also had toughness. And they were tough for each other. They were truly a team, and together they could beat anybody. While the later Oilers offered more flash and dash, those Isles couldn't be beat for grit.

          Derek Jeter reacting to the final out of the 2000 World Series over the Mets at Shea Stadium.



          The tone was set when Rueben Rivera complained that what was wrong with the Yankees was that all they wanted to do was win. '96 was sweet, as it introduced Derek Jeter, it ended a long drought, and the arrogant Braves got the spanking they so richly deserved. '98 was special, however: 114 regular season wins, 125 overall, and a display of professionalism and desire the likes of which has not been seen since in the world of sport. Yes, the Yankees of that era sported Baseball's highest payroll, but they fielded none of Baseball's highest paid players at any position, and there was a different hero every night. Most tellingly, they gladly grabbed the low-hanging fruit: something like 70% of baserunners at 3B with less than 2 outs scored. They never led their league in HR's, nor boasted a 40-HR hitter, but they were always among the leaders in runs scored. (Were it that today's Yankees borrow some habits from their forebears.) And in '00, they topped the Mets. they were the best I ever saw, and it is quite likely that we'll never see a team so good again.

            5 Consecutive Stanley Cups

            In its five-year reign as champion, Montreal never trails in a playoff series and is not pushed to Game 7 even once. During the regular season, the Habs average more then 40 wins a campaign.

              They could run, they could pass, and boy could they hit! To my mind they were the last great NFL dynasty.

                    12. Iowa Hawkeyes NCAA wrestling (1978-1986 and 1995-2000)



                    Behind fearless leader Dan Gable, someone who knew a thing or two about winning streaks, the Iowa wrestling team won nine consecutive national championships from 1978 to 1986. The program continued its dominance by winning three more consecutive titles from 1991 to `93 and six from 1995 to 2000.
