Happy New Year!
Can you believe it’s already 2020? As we enter the new year and new decade, let’s take a quick look back at the 2010’s. The New England Patriots are the team of the decade for regular season when against teams in the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, and MLS. In the ten years between 2010 – 2019, the Patriots have won 78.1% of their regular season games. And during that time, they’ve won three Super Bowls, five conference championships, and every year, they won their division, meaning they also made an appearance in ten consecutive playoffs.
The San Antonio Spurs are the second team of the decade with a 69.4% winning record, which makes then the NBA team of the decade. In 2014, they won the championships. And they have two conference titles and six division titles.
In the hockey realm, the Pittsburgh Penguins are No. 1 for the decade. They’ve won 64.6% of their games in those ten years. And they won two consecutive Stanley Cups, two conference champs, and two division champs.
The Warriors come in fourth overall for Team of the Decade. They have a winning percentage of 64.5% with three championships, five conference titles, and five divisional titles.
And the Green Bay Packers come in fifth overall and No. 2 for the NFL. They’ve won 64.4% of their games in the last ten years. They kicked off the 2010’s with a Super Bowl championship, followed by six divisional championships. And they’ve appeared in all ten playoffs.
While the Patriots clearly win the title of “Team of the Decade,” the Penguins, Warriors, and Packers come within a hair of each other. But will the 20’s be as good to them?
