What professional team has the best winning percentage?
Besides the All Blacks are the best team in history of rugby and one of the most dominant nations at any sport, I can't assure they have the best winning percentage.
Trying to find winning percentages over 60%, we have:
Kentucky State in college basketball: 75.8% (only one higher)
All Blacks in rugby: 74%
Alabama University in College American Football 73.5%
San Antonio Spurs in NBA: 61.4%
P.D: Supremacy is not only said by statistics. To take an example, Argentina at polo:
A polo player is graded with a handicap betweeen -2 and 10 to rate its game value. At world polo cups, handicap of a team is limited to 14 to make a spare match .
However, Argentina could join a team handicap of 40 with no big effort. In local tournaments It's uncommon to find a team with a hanicap lower than 30.
As it is: it's impossible to concieve the real potential of the team, but It is so accepted that they're the best they have no need in playing. To me, this is the most notorious supremacy in ANY sport. Ever
----- Below is the answer from NZCoyote-----
In my true sporting opinion, the greatest ever sports team in ANY sport would have to be the New Zealand All Blacks, rugby's most successful team ever.
In over a hundred years of rugby, the All Blacks hold an 84% winning record against all oppostion played. They have also won 74% of all test matches played, and hold a winning record against EVERY TEST NATION IN THE WORLD (including the British & Irish Lions, and the World XV).
Romania (the best team in Eastern Europe), Canada (the best team in North America), Japan (the best in Asia), and other World Rugby Heavyweights Ireland, Scotland, Italy, Argentina, Samoa, and Fiji have never beaten New Zealand.
The average margin when playing the All Blacks is 25-12- that is, they have scored more than twice the amount of points than all opposition combined.
New Zealand is so good, that they have never been ranked lower than 3rd on the World Rankings. In 1987, they were crowned the first ever Rugby World Champions beating France in the final 29-9.
Since 1996, when rugby became professional, the All Blacks have played 149 games, winning 121. Their victories have lead to 9 Tri-Nations Championships in 13 years, play-off appearances in every World Cup to date, a first ever test series victory in South Africa, 7 undefeated tours to Europe; including 2 Grand Slams Tours(when a team plays England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales in succesive weeks and win), a test series whitewash against the British & Irish Lions, a World record 30 test victories in a row on home soil (spanning five years), the Bledisloe Cup, and the Hillary Shield.
Only five test nations IN HISTORY have ever beaten the All Blacks- Australia, South Africa, France, England, and Wales (who have not beaten New Zealand since 1954). The most successful team to ever play New Zealand is South Africa (winning just 40% of the time), while Australia have won the most times (39 victories from 132 matches).
This small, tiny nation boasts a player pool of just 90,000- yet they provide the bulk of the Rugby Hall of Fame.
Not even the great Brazilian Football Team can match the proud winning record of New Zealand. The same applies to Canada in Ice Hockey, Australia in Cricket, or any professional sports team from the United States.
The All Blacks. LEGENDS.
That would depend on what team has the best winning percentage in the league. Generally, the wild card team plays the division winner with the best winning percentage. However, if the division winner with the best winning percentage is in the same division as the wild card team, then the wild card team will play the division winner with the second best winning percentage and the division winner with the best winning percentage will play…
Teams with at least 4 World Series appearances, the Pittsburgh Pirates have the best winning percentage. 5 World Series titles in 7 Appearances, 5 -2 for a .714 winning percentage. Teams with at least 10 World Series appearances, the New York Yankees have the best winning percentage. 27 World Series titles in 40 Appearances, 27 -13 for a .675 winning percentage.
Through the 2007 season, the American League team with the most wins in a regular season was the 2001 Seattle Mariners with 116.

According to today's Baltimore Sun, "The Steelers have the best home winning percentage (.722) in the NFL since 1970." http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/football/bal-ravensscout0928,0,734965.htmlstory Must be a steelers fan since he doesn't include the year 66,67,68,69 in which the Steelers were terrible. Include those numbers and the steelers do not have the best home winning percentage. Since 1966 the Kansas City Chiefs have the best winning percentage followed by the Packers.
I am adding to the answer because the information supplied by the responder has some noteworthy information on the NY Yankees. That answer can be seen in the last two paragraphs. The best New York Yankee lifetime winning percentage by a starting picther is held by Lefty Gomez. He pitched in the 1930's and had a winning percentage of .839. Whitey Ford had a career .690 win percentage for a career, one of the best…
Through Super Bowl XLII, that would be the Carolina Panthers at 6-3 for a winning percentage of .667 and the Baltimore Ravens at 5-3 for a winning percentage of .625. For teams that have been around a little longer than the Panthers and Ravens, it would be the New England Patriots at 21-13 for a winning percentage of .618 and the Green Bay Packers at 24-15 for a winning percentage of .615.
