In other words, your dealing with a 1 year window forward or backward in time.

For example, when the Lakers beat the Kings in 2002, do you feel those same Kings could have beaten either the 01 Champs (no way) or the 03 Champs (Spurs)?

The Kings are bound to be mentioned so I started with them, I do believe they could have beaten the 03 Spurs, as one of the best non-champion teams. But is there anyone else with a similar situation?

I think the 02 Kings could beat pretty much any other non dynasty champion in NBA history (Bird Celtics, Jordan Bulls, Shaq+Kobe Lakers excluded etc). That team was so complete and awesome. Just a damn shame they had to face the buzz saw Lakers. Even then many still felt that was their series outside of bad reffing etc.
