Getting pumped up for the NBA season?  Just 11 more days till Basketballmas.

Here’s a quick look at every team’s total regular season wins all time.

The L.A. Lakers have the most wins of all time – for now.  The Boston Celtics are close behind.  Those two teams stand over 400 more wins (about 5 seasons worth) ahead of the nearest competitor, the Philadelphia 76ers – who were not even a founding team.

The Lakers, Celtics, New York Knicks, Detroit Pistons, Golden State (then Philadelphia) Warriors and Sacramento (then Rochester Royals) Kings are the remaining franchises from the founding BAA league.

Take a look at the history of every franchise’s name and location changes in the far right column.
