Greatest Winning Streaks in Pro Sports

Apr 05, 2013

What is going on in the NBA and the NHL that teams just keep winning and winning? The players get so excited about the winning streak that they treat every game like it's the championship final. Nobody ever really gets excited about their sports until the playoffs... unless your team goes on a record-breaking winning streak, so let's check out some of these amazing winning streaks...

2013 Winning Sreaks

There have been 4 amazing winning streaks in pro sports this year and it's only April. 2013 marks the year of something very special because it's very rare to see pro sports team dominate the competition like this. So here are the results.

The Miami Heat win 27 games in a row. This had to be the most popular winning streak because of Lebron James and his domination of basketball. At one point, you thought that the Heat were just going to win every game for the rest of the season. Miraculously, the Chicago Bulls ended their streak with some amazing 3-point shooting.

Chicago Blackhawks started the NHL season with at least 1 point in their first 24 games. Everyone is excited that Patrick Kane is finally showing the leadership of the next emerging Superstar with his job-dropping skills.

The Pittsburgh Penguins won 15 games in a row. Unfortunately the NHL's best player on the Penguins, Sidney Crosby got hit in the head with a slap shot and the next game the Penguins lost.

Shadowed by the more popular teams, you'd be surprised to hear that the Denver Nuggets won 15 games in a row. That's still pretty amazing considering most people can't even name one player who plays on the Nuggets... mmmmmm.... Corey Brewer?

All-time Longest Win Streaks

So how close were these win streaks to breaking the World Records? Check it out:

The longest winning streak for any professional sports team is held by the 1971-72 LA Lakers when Wilt Chamberlain dominated the opposition and lead the Lakers to 33 wins in a row. In case you don't know who Wilt is, he once scored 101 points in a single NBA game!!!

A recent comment on a video gave me this idea , of writing about this whole scenario  the comment was something like this Messi + Ronaldo = Zlatan It was something that made me happy , cuz i'm a Zlatan fan myself , but keeping that aside I'll be honest in stating the reasons due to which Zlatan is considered better among fans  1st - Tired of Messi vs Ronaldo ; For those of you tired of the endless Messi vs Ronaldo debate Zlatan is the middle way , when Zlatan was asked for a word to describe Messi and Ronaldo  he said for Messi - Fantastic , for Ronaldo - Good ( he'd definitely prefer messi since he was in barca , so definitely against Real Madrid , but i'll skip that ) , but when asked about one word for Zlatan - "WOW!" that was his answer 2nd - If you believe in extraordinary and Jaw-dropping stuff; If we talk about Messi and Ronaldo we'll think constant goal scorers and team players and who deliver something great evry time the team needs it , but Zlatan he may also score regularly not as frequent as Messi or Ronaldo , but every time he scores it's another jaw dropping goal , whether that 32 yard bicycle kick vs England or extraordinary volleys Zlatan is Zlatan 3rd Zlatan does things nobody does; You won't see Ronaldo having fun with reporters or Messi bad mouthing his manager even when he is wrong , Zlatan doesn't cares,  like who can forget the epic reply to Arsene Wenger on asking Zlatan to play a trial game , -" ZLATAN doesn't do Auditions" If some of you guys don't agree with me no problem , everybody has their own opinion , and if you don't agree with me cuz you don't know about any of those Zlatan goals or interviews , then you should definitely search the internet for - Extraordinary Zlatan  ZLATAN may had not won the -ballon d'or , but has won large no of trophies and league titles  search for zlatan ibrahimovic - titles and trophies for that

Well for me, I think totally! Inside that is. When a guy says girls can't play sports I think THEY can't be cheerleaders. But if a guy says girls CAN play sports, yep, they could be cheerleaders
