shaq was a beast and underappreciated by kobe fluffers

if this team had a center like that it might challenge the bulls 72-10 record

a healthy dwight howard on the heat. lebron would feed him for 12 assists a night. and still drop a 28 ppg.

Neither player was mentioned specifically here. That's all in your mind.

But let's look at the 2000-2001 Playoff numbers.

Shaq averaged 30.4 points, 15,4 Boards, 3.2 assists, .4 steals, 2.4 blocks and shot .52% from the FT line.

Kobe averaged 29.4 points, 7.3 Boards, 6.1 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.8 blocks and shot .82% from the FT line.

This team was Shaq, Kobe and a cast of extras.

Doesn't change what they accomplished.

or what they accomplished for the first 3 years after shaq left

shaq scored his points through double teams and triple teams in those days and put backs which left kobe wide open to chuck up shots

until kobe had to be the superstar

Yeah idk how that scrub didn't win with a starting lineup of:

PG: Smush Parker

SF: Lamar Odom

PF: Brian Cook

C: Chris Mihm / Kwame Brown

LeBron would've won multiple championships with that team, no doubt.

As soon as Kobe got Pau Gasol, arguably the best big of all time he started winning again with Pau carrying him.

lebron is still a better overall player by leagues and could have at least gotten smush and company out of the first round.

LeBron went to the finals with Mo Williams, Delonte West, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Boobie Gibson, and Anderson Varejao.

Not too shabby.

Maybe they'll get close to 33 reg season wins before it's all through and catch The Logo and Wilt

.

Here's a better goal.

Match the 2000-2001 Los Angeles Lakers Playoff record.

An astounding 15-1 record on the way to the Championship againt the NBA's finest.

Not likely. I would argue that the league was at its weakest point at that time. The Lakers had the 2 best players in the league, the best coach, and the best veterans (Horry, Ron Harper, Shaw, Pretty Ricky Fox, Ho Grant, etc). There was literally no one that could challenge their talent advantage at that time. The league's premier talent is much more evenly spread in 2013 than it was in 2001. And the league is much more competitive.

Are you really laughing at that? Pau had to be the best big of all time to carry that chucker, kobi.

Mo actually wasnt even on that team. LeBron had Eric Snow & Damon Jones as his PGs and Larry Hughes was another SG along with the other guys you named. Mo Williams signed with the Cavs in the 08-09 season. It only further illustrates your point about the lack of PREMIER talent he had around him at that time.
