But gasol, whose a 7 footer, playing close to the basket went 6/16 37%fg and 7/13 from the ft line. It was a defensive struggle and the lakers clearly won because of their rebounding advantage

Um...lol

6 for 16 is MUCH MUCH better than 6 for 24.

Gasol made the same amount of field goals, in 8 less attempts. You're not helping your case much. Then you go on to say that Lakers won because of their rebounding advantage...Um...lol Gasol had EIGHTEEN, 18, rebounds that game.

Gasol was 19-18-4 with 2 blocks that day (6-16 shooting)

Jordan's best series (at a similar age) was agains the Suns as well, and it was the Finals. He averaged:
41 PPG 8.5 RPG 6.3 APG 1.7 SPG 0.7 BPG on 51/40/70.

Kobe with great teammates (he had absolute trash before Gasol) won 2 rings and went to the Finals 3 times. Jordan?

MJ >>>>>>>>> KB and it's not even close. One is the GOAT and the other sits at #10.

PS. I'm ignoring the Suns' defense in '10, because Kobe was a year older than MJ.

Like I said, its a myth that many seem to believe.

I think you misunderstand. As according to the thread, he was listing a myth, not what he believes to be true.

To say they were the same teams is laughably stupid

04-05 Wade and Shaq were killing them but Wade got injured. Shit happens.
