Which NBA franchise has won the most championships in league history?
OOPS... TRY AGAIN
The Boston Celtics won eleven championships in the 50’s, and 60’s. They went on to win another two in the 70’s, another three in the 80’s, and one in 2008. Their 17 championships are the most by any NBA franchise, having just one more than the Los Angeles Lakers.
