2003-2004 LA Lakers
-4 All-Stars COLLUDING to win a ring.
-The BEST defensive PG in the history of the game.
-One of the best PF of all time.
-Fans talk mad shit and already declaring themselves the future champions.
-Made the finals but CHOKED to the underdog Pistons.
-Team has 4 first ballot hall of famers in Shaq, Malone, Payton, Kobe.
First ever collusion in NBA history where stars SHAMELESSLY team up to try and win a ring but came up short. Said to be among the biggest chokejobs in NBA finals history.
2012-2013 LA Lakers
-Second attempt at collusion.
-Projected to win Western conference.
-Fans talk mad shit and make memes already declaring themselves the future champions.
-Team has to get suspicious officiating vs subpar teams just to make the playoffs. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MhmGyZ7KF0
-Will end up winning 0, ZERO playoff games.
-Team has 4 first ballot hall of famers in Kobe, Nash, Dwight, Pau and a former DPOY in Artest.
This has to rank among the biggest chokejobs season in professional sports. At least the 2004 Lakers got to the Finals before Kobe chucked them out of it.
