  1. Well no one should say that. I certainly...

    Well no one should say that.
    I certainly wouldn't discredit him like that.

    Was Pippen not important on the 90's Bulls?
    Was Drexler in 95 not important?
    Was Wade in 12 not important?

    He was...
  2. You are mistaken. They lost in the Conference...

    You are mistaken.
    They lost in the Conference Finals that year and did beat one 50 win team in the process.
    That team was Seattle.



    Not trying to discredit him.
    Only saying that for those...
  3. With Kobe playing like a below average...

    With Kobe playing like a below average roleplayer...
    Don't see how that is an argument in his favor.



    Yeah he did hit a game winner.
    He was also mostly irrelevant in the other games.
    Should...
  4. Shaq has 18 from 95-06 (did a quick scan).

    Shaq has 18 from 95-06 (did a quick scan).
  5. Yeah. They made the Finals and then lost in the...

    Yeah.
    They made the Finals and then lost in the CFinals against the 96 Bulls (GOAT team).
    I would say they did pretty well.
  6. Poll: Haha, no. Sacramento would wipe the floor with...

    Haha, no.
    Sacramento would wipe the floor with them.

    Shaq averaged 30 / 14 / 2 / 2-bpg on 56%TS against SAC.
    He also averaged 38 / 15 / 2 / 3-bpg on 59%TS over the last 2 games of the series...

    17 what?
    Wins against 50 win teams?

    May I ask where you got that number from?
  8. Winning is usually never a bad thing. Then again...

    Winning is usually never a bad thing.
    Then again if Cleveland gets wrecked or swept and Lebron doesn't play well it won't look good for him.
    He has many times in his career advanced far against not...

    While being on crap teams and facing incredibly strong competition.
    Kobe in a similar situation (05-07) and while facing weaker competition missed the playoffs and got booted out of the 1st round...

    Wade is the heart & soul of Miami.
    He is the one who lured Shaq to join them in the mid 00's.
    He is the one who lured Lebron to join them in the early 10's.
    Wade has directly and indirectly been...
  11. nvm. :cool:

    nvm. :cool:
  12. Poll: I think that 2008 series was arguably his most...

    I think that 2008 series was arguably his most impressive VS the Spurs.
    Yeah he put up better raw numbers against them in 2001 but he did it against horrific defenders and against a team defense...
  13. Probably for the best. I grew up with Kobe and...

    Probably for the best.

    I grew up with Kobe and always enjoyed watching him play (one of the few guys remaining from the old guard) but he has looked like a shell of himself since 2011+ with the...
  14. Poll: First of all the 00 decade is from 00-09 (10...

    First of all the 00 decade is from 00-09 (10 years)
    I think this is between Kobe & Duncan

    Shaq had about 3-4 years where he was better then Kobe ever was (00-03) but as others have mentioned he...
  15. I'll admit the story bothered me. I mean he...

    I'll admit the story bothered me.
    I mean he didn't have a weapon on him and there were numerous cops around.
    Why did they have to be so rough with him that they'd break his leg?

    Police...
  16. You mean that strategy that was rarely used...

    You mean that strategy that was rarely used against Shaq and was even more rarely effective?



    Please. Shaq missed 12 games to start the 2003 season. Considering the fact that he had just...
  17. I agree about Kobe being the better shooter...

    I agree about Kobe being the better shooter especially from the true mid-range area but what about Shaq & Wade?
    They fit eachother like a glove and were very successful on the court.
    Had Wade not...
  18. There is a difference between "pushing someone"...

    There is a difference between "pushing someone" and antagonizing them/making them a rival because of jealousy, arrogance or ego.
    Kobe and Shaq didn't get along because they simply didn't like...
  19. Game 1 was a -5pt loss. Game 5 was a -2pt...

    Game 1 was a -5pt loss.
    Game 5 was a -2pt loss.

    I mean Kobe was actually pretty good in G5 but he wasn't that great in G1.



    Eh? Shaq collapsing defenses near the basket cleared out the...
  20. I think both years would be a possibility with...

    I think both years would be a possibility with Prime Jordan or Lebron.
    The 03 series especially was very close and Kobe played pretty badly in some of the losses.
    Kobe was unfortunately injured in...
  21. Jordan & Shaq is probably my dream duo. Most...

    Jordan & Shaq is probably my dream duo.
    Most unstoppable guard ever matched with the most unstoppable center ever.

    I also don't think they'd nessasarily end up fighting with eachother.
    Jordan...
  22. Agreed though I think Shaq is generally...

    Agreed though I think Shaq is generally underrated defensively.
    In a big picture sense I only see him being one tier below Duncan defensively with guys like Jabbar & Wilt.



    Agreed again though...

    I wouldn't say he has better longevitiy.
    He did have better durability in terms of playing a higher percentage of reg-season games but that is the only longevitiy edge he really has.

    Prime length...

    I am not gonna jump to any conclusion in regards to Lebron declining.
    I feel like his work ethic is good so I wouldn't expect his skills to decline.
    Physically he doesn't look that much less...

    What is VORP?
    Has a cool sounding name but so far I am pretty hesitant to take it that seriously as a stat based on how I have seen it rank some things.

    I mean according to career playoff VORP...
