Only counting the big four NFL, NHL, NBA, and MLB

We still have one more championship to play in this decade and that is the World Series, the new decade will not start until 2011.

BEST of the decade 2001 - 2010

Boston

3 super bowls / 4 AFC Chmpionships
2 World Series Championships
1 NBA Title / 2 Eastern Conference titles

Runner up

Los Angeles

4 NBA titles
1 World Series
1 Stanley Cup Some might include the Ducks despite not being in LA


WORSE

Cleveland
-Not to dump more crap on them, they have been through more than enough. Indians Lost to the Red Sox in the ALCS when I believe they were up 3-1 IIRC. Football team was in high hopes with Brady Quinn, team basically a disaster and we all know what happened last night with the Cavs.

I love Cleveland and the state of Ohio being a fellow Yankee state (Northern bias)

Dallas
-On here for the hype they get.
Rangers suck.
Stars Suck.
Cowboys one of the most overrated team of the decade. Had a great season in 2006-2007 with a 13-3 season and fell flat on their face to the Giants.
Following year Crushed by the Wing Heads.
And finally when they get over the PO hump the Purple Horn Blowers spank them.
Mavericks have been a PO power for some time, and only manage to embarrass them selves. What do they have 8 straight 50+ win game seasons? Went to the finals being up 2-0 against the heat then lost 4 in a row. Were a number 1 seed and lost to the number 8 seed Warriors. And this past season a few people picked them to win the west and were killed by the spurs.

Dallas pick is based on the over hype and have done nothing.

MOST DISAPPOINTING

Philadelphia

They did win a WS but also lost 1.

5 NFCC appearances by the Eagles 4 of them for a loss.
Lost in the SB against the Pats

76ers lost to the Lakers in 2001

Flyers recently lost in the Stanley cup
lost to Tamp and Pitt in ECC


Thoughts?

What is a "wing head?"

Is that a reference to the Eagles?
