Teams That Made The Biggest Impact in Sports

Behold our impenetrable list of the most dominant teams in the last two decades. To successfully create our list, we looked at a wide range of factors. Please keep in mind that the list only features teams that have managed to win championships. This is due to not being considered dominant if you manage to lose the last match of the season. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the teams that made the biggest impact in the history of sports.

2016/17 Golden State Warriors

The Golden State managed to take a team that went 73-9, and when they added Kevin Durant, they got even better. The Golden State Warriors from the 2016/17 season outscored their opponents by a jaw-dropping 11.6 points per match which is the biggest margin of any team in the NBA in the last two decades. Their field goal percentage was 56.3% which was also the highest in the NBA. They also led the NBA in plays, forced turnovers, steals, blocks, and assists. During the playoffs, they went 16-1, making them the most dominant team with the biggest impact on our list.

2002/03 Australian Cricket Team

If you interested in a global ranking of teams when it comes to sports, you can’t go wrong with cricket. The International Cricket Counsel are expecting to make between $2.5 billion and $3 billion within the financial plan that stretches from 2015 through to 2023. Over the past 20 years only one team played like the Celtics from the 1960’s as Australia managed to win an unbelievable 72 of 93 matches from 1999 through to 2007.

1998 New York Yankees

Twenty years following their 125-win season basically means that we have been hearing for the past two decades how the New York Yankees have played the game perfectly while being led by Mariano Rivera and Derek Jeter. Well, they are not wrong. They managed to outscore their opponents by over 300 runs. There’s also no other MLB team that has been above average at each position on the field.

2012/13 Chicago Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks managed to finish the shortened season during 2013 with a points percentage of .802 which is the highest of any team in the NHL for the past two decades.  A phenomenal overtime game against Detroit, a 112 minute opener against Boston and a double-OT game against the Kings who were the defending champions at the time created the most exciting gameplay the season has seen in 20 years. Add in two more overtime matches during the Stanley Cup final managed to make the Chicago Blackhawks the most dominant NHL team during the 2012/13 season.

2002 LA Sparks

The Sparks managed to sweep every playoff series, defeating opponents with an average of 12 points to win their second consecutive championship. In fact, Lisa Leslie had almost 50 more rebounds when compared to others in the WNBA, allowing her to become the first female to dunk in a professional match.
