Default Comparing this team with the 2003-04 team

First off, congratulations to the Lakers for winning the NBA title- you were a big favorite at the start of the year, you dominated the West, 65 wins, and lived up to the hype.

Anyway, got some questions:

1. Could this Lakers team that just won the title beat the 2003-04 team? (I think so- better chemistry, less bickering, no gloom and doom possibilities, an undistracted Kobe.)

2. Also, why is it that the 2003-04 team was unable to live up to the hype and expectations, while this year's team was able to? (Again, chemistry. Also, the lack of starpower may have helped- Gasol and Odom may not have sounded been as flashy as Malone and Payton, but then again...)

3. Could this year's team have beaten the 2004 Pistons? Again, I say yes.

That 2004 team was really messed up whtn it had gotten to the finals.

A healthy Karl Malone would have done a number on Pau, and Shaq was still a very dominant force. Kobe was not as good as he is great right now, but Kobe couldn't single handedly beat that team.

Gary Payton would have guarded him probably.

One thing is for sure though, Ariza would have owned whoever started at the 3.
