The Lakers had the squad to win titles for their era. The West teams for the most part had soft midgets in the paint and what it came down to is none of those weak west teams had a frontline that could compete with the size and length of Gasol, Bynum, and Odom. Bynum didn't even have to be completely healthy in '09 to be effective against the cupcake frontlines of the west. LA won because they could simply over-power most teams on the offensive boards and dominate the paint. The '10 Celtics had a tougher frontline than any other team LA faced which is why it went 7 games.
