Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.
Bring Back the Zen Master.
I agree with you JB. The Lakers FANS are lucky, but it has been great management decisions that have gotten them these players. They knew to trade old Gail Goodrich for the Jazz first round draft pick as well as trading for the Cavs first round draft pick (James Worthy). They made smart decisions (although some will call it cheating like Pop). They have also rarely busted in the draft. They got Mikan at #1, Elgin at #1, West at #2, Magic at #1, Worthy at #1, Jones at #10, and...Bynum at #10? They have made the playoffs 55 times so are rarely in the lottery, but they are great in the draft.
BTW--Mikan won 5 titles in 7 years with the Lakers...not three.
Lakers have had a lot of luck. They got Kareem, Wilt, Shaq, and Kobe because they wanted out from their teams and LA was a perfect fit. They were the first team to win a championship because the refs made up a call to hand them a championship. But that's probably has less to do with luck and more to do with being in a big city with lots of money.
Not many people know that the Blazers pick they used on Bowie instead of Jordan in 1994 was originally the Pacers pick. They traded the pick a few years earlier. The Pacers would of had Jordan, and we would of had them championsips. So I say the Bulls are the luckiest. They were nothing before Jordan, and are nothing after him.
Thanks for the sig homie564
You guys are looking too much into some things that aren't luck.
The team w the most rings is the luckiest and thats Boston
The Lakers for a number of reasons. They have an attractive franchise name. They are in sunny LA with lots of hot women and celebs to attract would be free agents. They have always been a good team with a winning tradition. They have celebs in the crowd. They have unlimited funds. And lastly, they have an owner who believes in putting a winning product on the floor, and hires good people.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
There isnt a lucky franchise. There is a good franchise and a bad franchise. EX: Bobcats. Now if there was an unlucky franchise, what would the Thunder be? Formerly the Sonics, they had plenty of success. is that lucky? Then the last couple years, is that bad luck? Maybe they are just a decent franchise and has nothing to do with LUCK.
lucky that Jordan decided to take a hiatus...
lakers i guess
I dont Know who is the luckiest, but the most unfortunates have to be Clippers in the west and Knicks in the East.
