Introducing the Top Ten NBA Teams

On an international stage, the United States of America dominates in basketball. With five gold, three silver, and four bronze medals, with a 123-27 overall record, it is without a doubt that the best players across the world rush to play in America. Almost every park, neighborhood, and school has a basketball court. It can be deemed as an essential piece to building a community. With the strong presence of basketball in the USA, it is no surprise that the NBA is one of the most competitive and watched sports leagues in the world. Although the current NBA was formed in 1976, with the merge of the ABA and NBA, fan support for the thirty teams does not lack in power.

FanWide’s rankings are not based solely on success on the court nor success off the court. Rather, the rankings consider both in order to get the most wholesome analysis of each team. This balance in the rankings creates a broader field of data that allows for a ranking that is original and meaningful as it also uses proprietary data from FanWide fan clubs which is not available elsewhere. Read below to see the factors that were used to rank NBA teams based on data that was not limited to on-court success.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers NFL Watch Parties & Fan Club Events for TB

Although it has been a long time since the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the Super Bowl in 2003, the organization still has a lot of potential to tear up the league in future years. Initially, the Bucs were off to a hot start with #1 QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and #1 WR Desean Jackson. This ultimately boosted fan excitement, yet it all went downhill from there.

Despite the rough that they had this year, a lot of big names and stars stack the Buccaneers roster such as Jameis Winston, Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson, OJ Howard, Gerald McCoy, and Jason Pierre-Paul. Along with this roster, the fans of the organization have always wanted the best for their team and have been riding with the Bucs even through the rough times.
