The Philadelphia 76ers won the title in 1983. The Los Angeles Lakers won the title five times in the 1980’s and three more times to begin this decade. The Boston Celtics won the championship in 1981, 1984, and 1986. The Detroit Pistons won back-to-back championships in 1988 and 1989 and again in 2004.
