There have been several notable streaks that have taken form or been publicized during the 2013-14 NBA season. There has been Kyle Korver’s streak of consecutive games making a three-pointer streak, the 76ers’ dubious losing streak, and Kevin Durant’s ongoing streak of consecutive games with 25+ points. Do any of these make the list of the NBA’s greatest streaks ever? Let’s see.

Korver’s three-pointer streak certainly deserves to be recognized in regards to some of the greatest streaks the league has ever seen. It’s one thing to be a fantastic three-point shooter, but to do so with such consistency makes it all the more impressive.

There are many things that you can say about Dennis Rodman, but when he was playing he could get it done on the boards. The fact that an undersized power forward could lead the league in rebounding not just once, but seven years in a row, is remarkable.

It’s pretty impressive when an NBA player notches five triple-doubles in a season. The stat-hound Wilt Chamberlain put up nine consecutive triple-doubles in March of 1968. That’s hard to wrap your head around.

There’s really no debate that Michael Jordan is the greatest of all-time and his postseason success is a big part of that. The picture of his impact in the playoffs is his record streak of 60 straight postseason games with 20 or more points. That’s just an unreal mark of consistent dominance.

We’ve gotten pretty accustomed these days to seeing NBA players, stars in particular, take nights off to get rested and stay healthy. Though he may not have been a star, A.C. Green playing in 1,192 consecutive games is just incredible and, more than likely, is a record that’s never going to be touched.

The 2010-11 Cavs and this year’s 76ers both hold the dishonor of the longest losing streak in NBA history, but the Cavaliers’ ineptitude was much more “impressive.” With Philly, they sometimes didn’t even look like they were trying in their tanking effort. With Cleveland, they were trying and just couldn’t get it done for 26-straight games. That’s incredible when you think about it.

We’re more than likely never going to see a player average 30 points and 20 rebounds again. Granted it was in an entirely different era, but Wilt put up those numbers for seven seasons in a row. It’s near-unfathomable to look back on the numbers Chamberlain put up in those days.

The Spurs are in the middle of another active streak right now that’s spanned the last decade and a half. There have undoubtedly been dynasties in the league before, but the type of sustained success that is required for 14-straight seasons with 50 or more wins truly deserves more attention than it gets.

I can’t even comprehend a team scoring 100 or more points in every game of a regular season, but the Nuggets did it for 136 straight games (almost two full seasons worth of games). This might be the most underrated and least talked about incredible feat in the history of the league.

The Lakers’ winning 33-straight games is the most impressive streak in NBA history and it’s really not even that close. They won almost a half a season worth of games and did so consecutively. If anything, the Heat proved last season just how unbelievable a 33-game winning streak really is.
