Shit thread. But I did notice something.
Kobe 2000 Finals: 16/5/4 on 37%. 20% 3p.
Fisher 2002 Finals: 13/4/4 on 52%. 67% 3p.
Fisher > Kobe. Thanks Kenneth.

hypocrisy at its finest



"shaq can win with any kobe replacement"


"all kobe does is score"


"how can you mention only ppg"

To be fair, Shaq won his first title while his second option got outscored by a role player, Austin Croshere.

Only because he played more minutes than Shaq

Shaqs per48 win shares was slightly better

Then you factor in Shaq was the brunt of the defensive attention

It's the closest Kobe ever came to dethroning Shaq

people seem to forget that the east has sucked forever. and the real nba finals is in the western conference


they all say ... "well shaq and any 20ppg guy can beat the pissers, philly and jersey"


except shaq with any other guy doesnt make it past portland, sanantonio or sacramento to play those weak finals matchups


sh*t.. kobe and any adequate big woulda shat all over indy, philly and jersey too


this isnt saying allot.. the east sucked
