So apparently I'm famous on the board for being 13.

It's not you being famous for being 13, so much as everyone else realizing how stunningly old they are. Hell, I'm 23 and I already fear having a low-paying job, being shackled for most of my life with student loans, not having a wife or kids, not being able to buy a house, seeing all of my friends outperform me when I'm desperately trying to catch-up to them but never being able to, witnessing the death of my parents, and, ultimately, dying old, poor and with no contacts.

The world around you, from the economy to your social life, will be better in 10 years. I, both, wish you great luck in harnessing this and feel envious of your generation learning from our mistakes and woes to better yourselves.

2002 Lakers, 2011 NY Giants, 2011 Alabama football. and 2011 Cardinals, simply for being given championships they didn't deserve. In the Lakers case, they were gift-wrapped what was essentially the NBA Finals against a team that if they had won would've been mentioned in the same breath as the 1996 Bulls and 1986 Celtics.

1998 Falcons would be up there too if they beat the Broncos in the Super Bowl; they robbed the Vikings of glory.

Pretty much my immediate reaction to seeing that.

The Falcons didn't really steal it from the Vikings; the Vikes choked, missing a field goal that would've iced it.

Before you read this be prepared as it will be extremely biased and may contain a few grammatical errors (its 's 2 in the morning over here).

2007 and 2011 NY Giants

Let it be known that I hate hate hate hate the Giants beyond belief. Honestly the Cowboys are my third favorite professional sports team behind the Yanks and the Knicks, yet I don't hate a team in any sport more than I hate the NY Giants. And it's not even like I hate the guys on the team. Sans a few guys like Strahan, Jacobs, Bradshaw, Pierce, and Blackburn (most of which are no longer with them), I really don't/didn't mind anyone on the Giants. It's more their fans, most of which are incredibly douchey 20-somethings who literally became fans in 2007, know little-to-nothing about the actual sport, and believe that their team is magically entitled to a championship every season. Eerily similar to the fanbase of another NY franchise that I happen to support, notice a trend? Now I think that Eli is one of the greatest clutch quarterbacks in NFL history, yet I think he was gift-wrapped two chances at a Super Bowl, and I'll gladly elaborate on that if anyone would like. Now I know that every fanbase has its inevitable share of douchebag fans, but being a Cowboys fan in New York I am literally surrounded by these people. The same fans the who didn't realize that this season started on a Wednesday night and that they were the home team in that game. The same fans who (I'm related to them) went to the 2011 parade after literally knowing two players on the team. I've got coutless examples of this stuff guys I'm not joking. Now I've met maybe one or two casual Giant fans under 30 who weren't total asses in my life, but they're about as rare as a logical dfwabel post (I kid because I love). Now before you guys get on me for berating a fanbase for being asses when pretty much 75% of Cowboys fans are just that, let it be known that I am named after Troy Aikman. I didn't necessarily choose to support this franchise, they were just sort of handed to me and I rolled with it because I liked their uniforms. Yes I get happy when they win, yes I get sad when they lose, but all in all I'm just a fan and I don't let it kill me one way or the other. I have never once gotten into an argument in person about the Cowboys and I never plan to, I've never actually seen them win anything therefore I don't deserve the "5 championship rings" argument. But to wrap this up, Giants fans under 30 are some of the most disgraceful people in all of sports fanhood (if thats a thing) in my opinion, and I'm sure any non-Giant fans living in the tri-state area will agree with me.

It is just the shock of people seeing someone born in the 2000's actually being old enough to post something on this site.

When I associate people born in the 2000's I usually imagine young children in elementary school or going trick or treating on Halloween. I am pretty sure I am not alone on that either.

2007 New England Patriots - Coming off of spygate and going for perfection.

2010-11 Miami Heat - The first post-"Decision" Heat team

1993 Dallas Cowboys - "How 'bout them Cowboys?"

2005 USC Trojans - Fresh off of their previous NCAA Champions, Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush were all but handed their second.

Umm, what? The Kings won 61 games that season. A great season, but far from historic.

Thank you. Same here.

They started 19-9, then Webber returned from injury and they went 41-10 after that (in their 1-2 finish they rested their starters). Then they went 7-2 in the next 2 series and should've beaten the Lakers in 5 then swept the Nets, so they were really 56-13, or 67-15 stretched over a full season.

Okay, but that 41-10 record there? The Bulls went 72-10, over the entire season, and not just a favorably selected portion of it. And then they went 15-3 in the playoffs, so they were really 87-13 over the course of the full season. Like I said, not even remotely close. The Heat went 66-16 this past season, with a quasi-historic streak, and not even the most arden LeBron nut-hangers would claim that team should be mentioned among all-time greats.

The 2013 Heat are up there too. And the 1992 and 1997 Bulls, 1972 and 1987 Lakers, 1989 Pistons, 1967 and 1983 76ers, 1999 Spurs, and 2008 Celtics. The Kings would be up there with the best of the best if they had won the NBA title.

The 2008 Celtics were good, but Rajon wasn't Rajon yet and Kendrick Perkins was, well, Kendrick Perkins. Outside of the Big 3 and maybe Posey that team was just okay. Perkins was a huge liability out there. Let's also not forget the sheer terror of Eddie House bringing the ball up.

You, um, may want to talk to someone.
