What are the Stats of the Classic Teams?

Unfortunately, this list does not include the stats for the rosters of each of these teams. And while you can argue about the legitimacy of some of the stats for these teams… Some are just going to be better than others. On the bright side, you and your friends can finally settle on who would win between the 1964 Celtics and the 2007 ones. Or, any other dream match-up that you can think of!

Like many sports franchises, mechanics do remain from previous titles. So, brush up on your NBA knowledge with last year’s game!
