Here's SI's list of the top 25 sports franchises of this past decade. I like how it includes college teams, even though I'm pretty certain that calling a college team a "franchise" is a major NCAA violation.

Anyway, let's get to it. And no, there's no way the Lakers should be #1. It really should be UCONN women's hoops. They freakin' OWNED this decade.

1. Lakers
2. Patriots
3. UCONN women's hoops
4. Spurs
5. Yankees
6. Red Wings
7. USC football
8. Colts
9. Texas football
10. UNC basketball
11. Red Sox
12. Oklahoma football
13. Kansas basketball
14. Steelers
15. Florida football
16. LSU football
17. Michigan St. basketball
18. Pistons
19. NJ Devils
