Im going to revive this old topic Alexandr Karelin dominated wrestling for more than a decade. Usain Bolt and Michael Phelps careers are also hard to beat.

And Edwin Moses had a good run. (pun unintended, but it works)

From my understanding, The Denver Broncos have not had back to back losing seasons since 71' and 72', by far the longest such streak of the Big 4 of American pro sports, pretty remarkable if you ask me! However, if The Broncos don't improve by at least 3 games for the 2018 season this streak could be in jeopardy.

No NFL team has been able to match the 1972 undefeated record (17-0) of the Miami Dolphins. That is to say... they went undefeated all the way into and through the Super Bowl, which no team has been able to accomplish -- as yet!

Personally - the streaks that comes to mind are:

MJ's perfect finals record (6-0)
Ripken's 2632 games
Tiger's 142 cut streak

These come to mind because I was around for them. There are certainly many others that are also great (Wooden's NCAA champions, Russell's 8 straight championships, etc.) - they simply don't stick as much as they were before my time or in sports that I don't follow as much.

lol. I'm in the same club. I have buds that have 3 or 4. My dad has 6 and he was never better than about a 15 index. Meanwhile, I'm a low single digit and the closest I've come is seeing two of my buddies jar them. Still damn exciting though.

In my lifetime, the Celtics in the 1950s and 1960s, winning 11 of 13 NBA championships from 1957 to 1969, including an 8 consecutive championship streak.

Ohio State Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer issues statement clarifying suspension

In tennis, Rod Laver (who completed two Grand Slams, including one in the Open Era), Steffi Graf (the only tennis player to complete the Golden Grand Slam, which includes the Olympic tennis singles title) and Margaret Court, (who also completed a Grand Slam in the Open Era).

Laver's Grand Slam titles would have been off the charts, except that he turned pro after 1962 and was consequently banned from the Grand Slam tournaments until the beginning of the Open Era in 1968, when pros were allowed to compete in the Grand Slam tournaments.

Laver completed the Grand Slam in 1962, before turning pro, and in 1969 during the Open Era. He might have won 15 or more additional Grand Slam tournaments if he hadn't turned pro after the 1962 tournament season.
