Kobe and the Lakers always had stacked teams, if Lebron had stacked teams like that he would have won nine out of nine championships now so those rings do not mean much. 2012 Lebron had two crippled team mates in Wade and Bosh and still won.
Not even Jordan can do that, MJ also had stacked teams, if Lebron had those teams for 13 yrs he would win 13 rings.

Stacked?! Why be so damn foolish when you obviously have the i-net and can look this stuff up?!

How stacked were the Lakers when they had Shaq MINUS the season where the Lakers had Malone and Payton? It was Shaq and Van Exel I believe for a while then Kobe emerged but it was always a TEAM there with players who knew their roles like how Phil did it in Chicago with Jordan. No other legitimate superstars and while Shaq was with LA Kobe was just an emerging star, not a superstar like he is now.

How stacked were the Lakers AFTER Shaq and before Pau? They weren't! Kobe painfully carried them alone in those years and even threatened to leave if the Lakers wouldn't get him any help. Even after Pau's acquisition the Lakers weren't stacked like the Heat are. In fact, the big three in Miami is UNPRECEDENTED. You know what that means don't you? If not look it up for once.

2012 playoffs, Bosh missed most of it and Wade was less than 50% with a knee that needed surgery and had to be drained three times and and even when Bosh came back in the playoffs he was only 65%. What stacked team , Lebron had to do a lot, his PER was off the charts.

Once again you prove with what you say that you're nowhere near NBA quality as a player or anywhere in the realm of being able to coach on the collegiate level because even the casual sports fan knows that come playoff time in any sport just about everyone is banged up and not 100% but the bottom line is NO EXCUSES. If it's not life threatening you're playing. Do what you're paid to do because you're not the only one injured.

Also the threat of what a player can do is almost as good as him doing it because even if D-Wade and Bosh were not 100% they were still out there posing a threat and keeping OKC's D honest to open up the lane and the game for LBJ and the rest of the Heat. If Wade and Bosh gave into their injuries OKC would be champs. Period.

For the Heat to win LBJ averaged nearly a triple double and a PER of 34.7, one of the highest in playoff history, you say LJ was useless? You are the one who knows little of BB.

Show me saying anywhere that LBJ is/was useless Ginoflake. Don't be more of a tool by resorting to misquoting now.

LBJ this post season finally lived up to his hype. This is what people have been expecting him to do for at least the last 4 seasons and to finally get stuck in and focused and realize his own potential and not fold in the big moments.

LBJ didn't HAVE to avg. nearly a triple double, he is capable of that every night because he is a juggernaut that cannot be stopped by one player alone and it finally clicked this past post season with him.

You try and look at it as if LBJ had to carry the Heat with 2 other superstars which is really par for the course with you. Honestly, what else would we expect you to say? Nothing profound and insightful that's for sure! You are truly ludicrousness on tap Ginoflake.

Now what this guy will do is give you a rebuttle of ratios of blacks and whites or something far out to left field. Don't take him literally.

Exactly, he can't or wont ever answer straight up. It's basically pointless continuing on with Ginoflake.

His playoff PER is only second to MJ so he has lived up to every bit of it. By the time he is finished his playoof and regular season PERs will be higher than MJ's. I think that he has already surpassed MJ because not everything can be measured by PER. He is a perfect team mate, he will get you the ball when you r open whereas MJ will put his head and not see you.

You really have no clue about basketball. Dude don't even start to compare Jordan. You really think stats outweigh accomplishments? Take a seat Gino, clearly you didn't watch one Ioda of Mj. Dummy

It's not fair to compare lebron to MJ. Lebrons game is a kind of a hybrid Magic/Shawn kemp. Lebrons game is so unique you can't really compare him to anyone else. I've never seen a player have such a diverse game as his. If he develops a better jumper hell have the perfect game. That being said he is not the pure scorer MJ was. He is not a cold blooded killer like MJ. He is in the same league of defense in my opinion, which means a lot seeing as MJ was a crazy good defender. Come on Gino how can you say MJ and Kobe had stacked teams, then say Lebron had to carry a team with D wade and bosh. Lebron had "bulls like" teams in Cleveland and couldn't carry them to the big one.

Well said, all MJ had was his Robin Pippen and I will throw Rodman in for good measure in the latter years.

You can't argue with a fool lol. Shoot even when LA had Payton and Malone I wouldn't consider them stacked because they were only shells of their former selves. And I think we all remember the smush Parker era lol. Definitely not stacked. It was Boston's fault in changing the way teams are put together when they brought on Garnett and Allen. I remember how big it was at the time

Cleveland went to two big ones with LJ and he had all scrubs on the team. At Miami he had an average team and they won the title this year. Bosh missed most of the playoffs and was only 65% in the few games he played and Wade was only 50%. This shows me the greatnestt of LJ. MJ was helped by the refs a lot, if the refs called the games right he would not have won a single NBA title. He got away with palming, traveling, hooking, shove offs, over the back, grabbing, pushing off and most of all phantom calls when tyhe defenders were nowhere near him. His PER would had been a measely 22.5 career like KoMe's. Mj had carte blanche and was created by Stern.

You watching too many horror flicks. You make this sound like nightmare on elm street quoting Phantom calls. What are you stupid? I never read such stupidity. Snowflake I seriously think they need to re examine that warped brain of yours. Really they should. I have never read such utter nonsense.

Haha! Smush AND Kwame! WTF was Kupchak thinking?! And Kobe STILL took the Lakers into the playoffs and even competed with the Suns!

Could LBJ have done the same if he had Smush and Kwame instead of Mo and Z? Nope.

I never thought of it being all Boston's fault! Great point!=)
