Going Warriors. Their shooting is too much for Shaq.

Regarding your original post, I also used to think Lakers in 5. I don't think the Warriors can stop Shaq, but I do think they shut down Kobe one game and flat out outscore Shaq and the rest of the team in a thriller game 7.

While I am very concerned with how the Warriors would slow or stop Shaq (is Dray planning on guarding him?) I think the Warriors win more often than not.

Which version of the team around those two are we using though? I think there's 1 combo out there that would give them more fits over another.

Lakers were actually one of the best at defending the 3 those seasons but I'm just not convinced you can beat the Warriors just by pounding the inside. We just saw AD+Cousins still lose to the Warriors and I think AD+Cousins are probably good enough to >Shaq's production. Warriors weren't even playing great.

I mean....that 2000-01 Lakers:

Fisher (at his peak)
Kobe
Fox
Grant
Shaq

And bringing Horry, Shaw, Harper, Lue off the bench. In this matchup I would put Horry in over Grant to start. I just see Shaq being way too much of a matchup problem. I think defensively I would tell him to just camp out under the rim and not worry about chasing the ball.

And in the dance off sudden death no one beats Mark Madsen.

Under today's rules, Warriors in 6. Under the rules in 2001, Lakers in 6. Would have been a pretty good series regardless. The Warriors would have no answer for Shaq and he woud dominate the post, but Los Angeles couldn't stop the Warrior's 3 point party either. If the Lakers could hit them a bit more they would win, but if they were playing under 2017 rules, Golden State would win.

Mainly had the 2001 Lakers in mind. IMO that's the best version.

It's Curry's Warriors and klay needs to step up in the playoffs way more before he enters the Splash Bro discussion again. Sick of that guy.

He's only really ghosted on one playoff run and we had Durant. Hopefully Klay goes on a tear that carries into the playoffs. He's capable.

Warriors in six.

The Warriors are the most talented team ever, and they happen to be greater than the sum of their parts. The Kings took the Lakers to 7 in 2002 without Peja (injured against Dallas earlier in the playoff).

The Kings played ball the same way the Warriors do, with a fraction of the coaching, talent, focus and killer instinct. If we can use the Kings as a barometer for how a space and pace three point shooting team would perform against the Lakers, I think I'm being generous by saying that the Lakers would get to six over the Warriors. The Lakers couldnt even figure out Mike Bibby, what would they do with Steph Curry.

Also, the Warriors are an aberration and Kevin Durant ruined the league. :)

The current Warriors have never seen a C even close to what a prime Shaq was. And when Kobe plays well, he's a handful. Same with Fisher.
