The Celtics of the Bill Russell era and the UCLA teams of the John Wooden era surpassed that by far.

You still dont get it do you?The last team in American pro sport to win 4 titles in a row and be in 5 championships in a row,were, The New York Islanders.
I am not talking about the 60s or 70s
The last team.

You asked if anyone knew of any other teams.Maybe you should try and be more clear.The way you say this it sounds as if you're implying the Islanders are the only team ever to do this.

Okay?

By the way if you WERE making a list then why would you leave out the Montreal Canadiens,and especially the Yankees?Maybe you forgot.

LAST LAST LAST LAST

OKAY?

What does that mean?Of course if they were the last to do it,then no one else can claim that they were the last.What's your point???????

I thought of the Celtics and UCLA off the top of my head because they have won 7 or more in a row.The Yankees never did that.
