    The 2002 Nets and the 2007 Cavs are the worst, in my opinion, also supported by the fact they were swept. The 2002 Nets had a nice little roster with Kidd, Kittles, Van Horn, Martin and rookies Richard Jefferson, Jason Collins and Brian Scalabrine (who was the 12th man, I think), but they lacked heart and consistency big-time. It was curious the difference between the Lakers and them, they seemed like two teams from different leagues. That type of difference could also be felt in the Spurs-Cavs series of 2007, the Cavs were young Lebron, Ilgauskas and then Gooden, Daniel Gibson, etc., names that lot of people here will not even know. At least the Knicks in 99 and the Sixers in 2001 won games and make the series somewhat competitive. Also, despite I want the Lakers to win, lol at you for putting the 2020 Heat there, when they haven't started playing yet.

    00 Pacers, Nets I think.

    07 Cavs is kinda weak, LBJ is the only thing on that team and he is not in his absolute prime yet.

    Idk about that the Nets were a good team with chemistry just not championship level talent wise. I believe they would beat the other 4 teams mentioned.

    miami's better than they seem on paper because they dont have a go to guy and have young guys who improved with the break. jimmy even with his flaws is a top 10-15 guy something I dont think you can even say the 04 pistons had. bam's still underrated with like an middle class draymond impact wise. dragic's been a surprise and playing like an all star in the playoffs. herro's broken out since this is closer to a second year for him and looks like a future 20/5 guy. Plenty of teams would take duncan/crowder as starters and they play really well together on both sides. iggy/olynyk can contribute as rotation pieces.

    they're still not a good finals team since a finals team is usually an elite team but they shouldnt be in any conversation for worst finals team and just have to be somewhat competitive vs the lakers not to drop into that convo. they beat very good teams in the bucks and celtics pretty convincingly. Could see them getting like the 3 seed 55+wins next year.

    The first six teams are kinda intriguing, slick.

    I'm doing my best to educate newbie 2020 accounts.

    They don't know better. Still learning.

    OP, the 1998 Jazz had the LOWEST Finals #2 scoring option in NBA HISTORY

    10.7 ppg

    Worst. Ever.

    Is this a joke?

    Only someone who's either clueless to basketball, or not paying any attention, would ask such a question.

    The Heat may well beat LA. They're a heck of a team, definitely the best in the east, and their chemistry is real. The comparisons to the '04 Pistons are warranted.

    Those guys are all led by Hall of Famers. Is Jimmy Butler a Hall of Famer?
    2004 Detroit Pistons currently don't have Hall of Famer.
