2008 Lakers didn't have...
1.Great physical play - They played soft the entire series.(One player particularly.. Pau Gasol.)
2. Didn't have Bynum - Haters can say what they want, but they needed Bynum big time.
3. Didn't have Ron Artest -
4. They had sorry ass Vladimir Radmanovic and Ronny Turiaf - Radmanvic cost the Lakers a few games, on his stupidity. The guy missed some wide open 3s, mishandled the ball, and caused stupid turnovers. Ronny Turiaf was just Ronny Turiaf..
5. Basically no team chemistry. Kobe Bryant played 1 versus 5 some nights. He didn't trust in his teammates enough, etc. - Look no further than 2009 NBA Finals.. my have things changed.
He believes in his teammates more and they are answering the call and will only get better, in 2010.
6. No answer for Paul Pierce. - Can anyone say Ron Artest?
And more.. but I need to think about it later...
So there you have it.. 2008 Celtics would fall, if they faced the 2010 stacked Lakers. No one in the league will have an answer, for this mighty team, once the season starts.
Let the 3peat... begin.
