It's pretty clear, Celtics are the franchise that won 11 of their titles in a what? 5 team league, and then went on a 20+ year drought of not winning shit.

And we have more legendary players than them, Kobe, Magic, Kareem, West >

Lakers >>

I'm sorry, but one of us has to deal in reality. You are talking about them bringing in a great player but can't really name anyone. Well, I have at least heard rumors they are trying to trade Gasol for Bynum. Though to be fair, that may just be a salary dump with Bynum getting cut immediately. They got to save some money after all, Kobe is due quite a few dollars.

Tbh the Celtics are starting to build a nice platform, we have a lot of draft picks and cap flexibility (especially if Danny can move Wallace's contract) to pick up some nice pieces to turn us back into a contender, you will see us contending soon enough.

You know who else was in that "5 team league?" The Lakers. And they would have considerably more Championships if they didn't have to face the Celtics.

You know what's funny about Lakers fans using the 5-team argument? The Lakers were one of the teams we kept beating

Furthermore, if those titles belonged to LA, you guys would be singing the praises of them.

This is true.

I don't get why the "Laker fans" bring up the league argument, when I'm sure if the Lakers won those titles instead of the Celtics, they would defend those titles to the brink.

I agree. The Celtics stacked titles in the baby years of the NBA.

Sure, draft picks will either work or not, same with free agency, the Lakers have room to make moves, no doubt they will, but Kobes contract crippled them a little (don't get me wrong, if I was Kobe I would take the contract too, it's the managements fault) and their title hopes are with him, we have the same chances to contend for the title in the next few years as the Lakers do.

It would matter if the Lakers had those titles and if you say otherwise, you are a liar.

true, while i still think there's more danger in picks than just dat, cause even if tey dont turn out busts or just average, when u hit th jackpot, on that rare ocassion, that player will most likely hit free agency at some point before being championship ready, so theres more risk than that....theres a reason crappy franchises that always get good picks do not sniff championships
