They have only lost 1 series in 5 years so my first guess is to look at the only series they lost (EASTERN team) because they decimated Western teams 5 years in a row now.

Lemme Google and I'll share what I find

I Googled it and it doesn't even seem possible but it said the only way you can beat the goat 73 win stacked team is:

-star player must be GOAT tier offense and defense
-star player MUST be able to elevate backdoor sweep 22 ppg on 38% player to his peak
-star player must lead all players in the series in all statistical categories
-star player must have a game winning block and game-winning free throw and be the only player to score a point for either team in the last 50 seconds of the game

It sounds like a ridiculous amount of work. But do you think anyone could do this?

So far it's Lebron only. Lets see if Giannis is good enough.

Hakeem, who can punish them inside for playing small but also has the mobility to play D on the perimeter. DRob would work too.

Don't think this thread is seeking real answers just mindless trolling. Nevertheless, it's a legit question regardless of the OP's motive.

Honestly, Shaq and Kobe's championship teams would give the Warriors fits. No team in history is prepared to deal with a force like Shaq, but he would decimate GS (and practically any team in today's era) because of their relentless focus on outside shooting and incredibly soft interior play. He'd treat Green like a child and anyone else they throw at him.

Lakers would try to slow down the game a bit and let Shaq destroy them in the half court. Also, no one on Golden State could consistently guard a young Kobe from 2001-2002, although Klay and Durant would take turns and might limit him somewhat. On defense, I think a young Kobe would have the quickness and drive to really make life difficult for Curry, and Ron Harper was a wily defender who was still tough enough to make Klay work really hard. The key is having a pitbull defense and mentality that could slow down GS's beautiful passing game and movement without the ball. Lakers are one of the few teams in history that have the potential to do that. Plus, Lakers had some intangibles during their run, such as tremendously clutch players like Horry (and also sometimes Fisher).

Of course, Golden State has strengths to exploit too, and Durant is the X-factor. No one in history can truly guard him when he's on, he's just too tall and quick. Nightmare match up. And Curry, Klay, and Green are all All-Stars. If Curry has it going full blast along with Durant, they might overwhelm the Lakers. But I think the Lakers defense would be too good to let that happen.

Of course, it depends on the rules of the game too. Early 00's rules are more tailored to the Lakers, today's rules, more for GS. I think it would be a 7 game series. Both teams with all time greats, intangibles, and an enormous amount of pride.

I can think of other teams and players that could give GS all they could handle, but the Lakers are the most recent team that could really take it to GS in my opinion.

We all tend to get caught in prisoner of the moment mentality. GS is one of the greatest teams of all time, and certainly could be argued as the very best. But numerous other teams could claim that mantle as well, and there's always arguments pro and con.
