89/90 Pistons
The 1989–90 NBA season was the 44th season of the National Basketball Association. The season ended with the Detroit Pistons winning their second-straight NBA Championship, beating the Portland Trail Blazers 4 games to 1 in the NBA Finals

1998 Yankees
The New York Yankees' 1998 season was the 96th season for the Yankees. The team finished with a franchise record regular-season standing of 114-48, 22 games ahead of the second-place Boston Red Sox in the American League East. These Yankees set an American League record for wins in a season, a record that would stand until 2001, when the Seattle Mariners won 116 games in the regular season against 46 losses. New York was managed by Joe Torre. The Yankees played at Yankee Stadium.

In the postseason, they swept the Texas Rangers in the American League Division Series, won the American League pennant by beating the Cleveland Indians four games to two in the American League Championship Series, and swept the San Diego Padres to capture their 24th World Series. Including the playoffs, the 1998 Yankees won a total of 125 games against 50 losses, an MLB record. They are widely considered to be one of the greatest teams in baseball history. The 125 wins (regular season and playoffs combined) was the most by a championship team, surpassing the previous record of 116, set by their cross-town rivals, New York Mets in 1986.

I saw the matchup and literally said 'oh fuck'. I had to go with the 98 team from the way they demolished everyone and didnt come out like the 2001 Seattle Mariners and actually won the WS. It was the start of their 3 in a row, something that had not been done since the 70's.

Detroit was just a badass team with a lot of characters, completely opposite of how the 98 Yankees acted. Detroit was in your face, brash, smashmouth basketball at its peak.

Had to go with the 98 team though.
