No. The 00-02 Lakers are. They got to play the heartless Blazer and King teams in the playoffs, and garbage in the NBA Finals. Once they played real competition (03 Spurs, 04 Pistons), they got their butts kicked.

Oh come on. Lakers were great and those Blazers and Kings teams were also very good. Lakers could have easily lost those 2 series.

The 2015 Warriors faced the highest seeds in their brackets. They faced each team that had a 1st team All NBA player aside from their own. They then follow up their 2015 finals appearance by making it to the finals 4 more straight times. Anyone with half a brain will know that isn't luck.

Nope, the Raptors are.

1) 2019 Raptors - Round one got the Orland Magic for a scrimmage series. Basically an NBA bye week. Then proceeded to face the Sixers where their best player was dealing with a sickness throughout the series. Followed up by facing the bucks which was the equivalent of the 07' Cavs as Giannis had no help in that series at all. Then we get to the finals and Durant barely plays at all. Klay plays hurt the entire series and is also forced to miss multiple quarters and a full game. Boogie/Looney/Iggy were injured as well. Curry also had an injured finger. One of the most if not the most depleted finals squad ever.

2) 2015 Warriors - They did face an opponent in every round that had a key player injured. Beating a top 10 ATG Lebron + scrubs > Curry + scrubs

3) 02 Lakers

Nah, the 90' Pistons were the luckiest when Pippen had that migraine in Game 7

The Bulls had "demolished" the Pistons in Game 6 and were confident heading into Game 7:

Jordan legitimately might've gotten the worst teammate performance in playoff history that night, at least for a game of that magnitude

In Game 7

Jordan: 31/8/9 on 13/27
The rest: 43 points on 15/63

I think 2007 Spurs is the luckiest, they easily 4-0 gentleman sweep the Cleveland Cavalier with a 23 years old no help Lebron.

2015 Cavs and 2019 Raptors are some sort of lucky but it is not like 2007 Spurs just beat the Cavs like its nothing.

Btw Raptors was down 0-2 against a stacked Bucks team.

The 2015 Warriors believed that earth belonged to them, whereas the 'unlucky' ones believed human is a specie amongst life forms
