The Boston Celtics are always looking to score points - stylish ones included.

They appear to have earned quite a few with Paul Lukas of Uni-Watch, who ranks the Celtics uniforms tops among NBA teams.

"The Rolling Stones, "Goodfellas," a Hershey's with almonds - the classics are classic for a reason," Lukas wrote in describing the Celtics' game-day gear. "That definitely applies to the Celtics' set."

Lukas added, "They rank atop this list despite sometimes wearing that black-trimmed alternate."

Indeed, uniforms void of the sometimes over-the-top bells and whistles scored high marks in the Uni Watch rankings.

Right behind the Celtics was another franchise whose uniforms have had a well, uniform look for many years with subtle tweaks here and there - the San Antonio Spurs.

Rounding out the top ten behind Boston and San Antonio were the Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors, Utah Jazz, Washington Wizards, Oklahoma City Thunder, Miami Heat, New York Knicks and Portland Trail Blazers.

Maybe there's a connection between the look of a uniform and the level of play, especially when you consider the bottom-five uniforms consisted of teams that 1) didn't make the playoffs last year or 2) are expected to not be in the postseason this season.

The bottom five consists of the Charlotte Bob-kitties, uh, Bobcats; Orlando (disappearing act) Magic, Minnesota Timberwolves (Timber-puppies is more like it), New Jersey (now in Brooklyn with a better team and better unis) and the Sacramento Kings whose uniforms are ranked dead last - which may very well be where the team is ranked to start this season.
