The story of the NBA Finals is, to a large extent, the story of two teams: The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers, who have won a combined 33 of 67 NBA championships since the first NBA Finals was held in 1947. The Lakers have made it to the Finals the most often, appearing in 31 NBA Finals and winning 16, while the Celtics have won the most championships, winning 17 NBA titles in just 21 appearances.

The first NBA Finals tickets went on sale in 1947, when the Philadelphia Warriors defeated the Chicago Stags. Yet the early years were marked by the emergence of the Lakers dynasty (then known as the Minneapolis Lakers), who won five NBA championships in six years from 1947-1956.

Not to be outdone, the next decade was dominated by the Celtics, who won a record eight straight championships from 1959-1966. In those days, NBA Finals tickets were all about getting the chance to see Bill Russell and company flat-out dominate the opposition, including the Lakers — who they beat in the NBA Finals seven out of seven times from 1959-1969.

In the 1970s, NBA Finals tickets became a more egalitarian affair, with eight different teams hoisting the Larry O’Brien Trophy in what became known as “the decade of parity.” This era was marked by the emergence of new teams from the West getting their hands on the 14-pound, 24-karat gold plated trophy including the Golden State Warriors, Phoenix Suns, Portland Trail Blazers, and Seattle Supersonics.

The 1980s were again all about the Lakers and Celtics, with NBA Finals tickets featuring either Boston and/or Los Angeles every year. During this decade, NBA Finals tickets meant seeing basketball legends Larry Bird and Magic Johnson square off again and again, with the Lakers beating the Celtics in the NBA Finals two out of three times. All together, the Lakers won five titles and the Celtics won three during the 1980s.

In the 1990s, the power base for NBA Finals tickets shifted to Chicago, with Michael Jordan and the Bulls winning six titles from 1991-1998, the third most titles of any team in NBA history besides the Celtics and Lakers. The Phil Jackson-coached team won their first three titles from 1991-1993, with the NBA Finals moving to Houston from 1994-1995 with the Rockets winning two titles.

But with the acquisition of Dennis Rodman and the return of Jordan from retirement, the Bulls would amass the best record in NBA history in 1996, going 72-10 en route to an NBA Finals victory over Seattle. NBA Finals tickets would remain with Phil Jackson and Chicago in 1997 and 1998, with the Bulls defeating the Karl Malone-led Utah Jazz both times.

But the start of the millennium did not mean the end for Phil Jackson, who would go on to win five more NBA Finals with the Lakers from 2000-2010. In this decade, NBA Finals tickets meant seeing Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neill become the first team since the Bulls to three-peat as they took home championships each year from 2000-2002. However, this era was also marked by the emergence of the San Antonio Spurs, who would win four championships from 1999-2007.

Yet the Lakers would close out the decade strong, losing to the Celtics in the 2008 NBA Finals before winning in 2009 against the Orlando Magic and defeating the Celtics in 2010 for Phil Jackson’s record-setting 11th NBA title.

The current decade has been marked by the emerge of the Miami Heat, who lost the 2010 championship to the Dallas Mavericks before winning the next two years versus the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs. These days, more often than not, NBA Finals tickets means a trip to South Beach to see LeBron James and company work to establish themselves as basketball’s newest dynasty.

Yet amidst all the celebration, let’s not forget there are still seven teams for whom NBA Finals tickets have never been in the offering. Teams who, at this point, have never made it to the NBA Finals include the Los Angeles Clippers, New Orleans Pelicans, Minnesota Timberwolves, Memphis Grizzlies, Toronto Raptors, and Charlotte Bobcats.

However, with several of those teams currently in the 2014 NBA playoffs, the history of the NBA Finals is begging to be rewritten.
