Article Summary:

While it might be the pettiest of joys, more than a few Boston Celtics fans are resting a bit easier in the knowledge that their favorite franchise won’t be trailing their longtime rivals, the Los Angeles Lakers, in total titles won in NBA history.

With the Lakers joining the Celtics in a first-round exit this season at the hands of the Phoenix Suns last night, the two storied franchises will remain in a dead heat in that regard, each with 17 NBA championships to their name.

The NBA is better when these two clubs are trading blows in the postseason, and while both have had some significant setbacks this season, they remain poised to do some serious damage in the 2021-22 NBA Playoffs.
