Default The 2006 Lakers

I think this team had a chance to be in The Finals. They had a smaller chance to be champs, but they had a chance. People call the other players scrubs, and try to Give Kobe credit for making the first round with such cast. Those are not Lakers fans. Doubt they even watched games.

Kobe took 27 shots a game. Lamar had like 14/9, Smush 11/5, Mihm 10/7, Kwame 7/7, Cook 8/6. While losing Chris hurt in the playoffs (we will get to this) , Kobe should have used them more. Give all those guys an extra shot or two and Kobe has possibly 4 or 6 double digit scorers. Kobe still takes about 20/22 shots a game. They had good paint D and rebounding. The team would stand around watching Kobe chuck, but still played good. They were ranked in the middle if I remember (defense). Kobe needed to trust these guys all year long. They would have given more effort. Instead he waits till the second half of game7.

I was always sayin' get Smush his touches, and when you pass to Kwame he will often not mishandle the pass and turn it over.

You didnt watch. STFU
They were one game away from beating the Suns. They beat the Clippers if they advance. The Mavs are tough but Kobe could have scored at will on them. Lamar had and advantage anyone the Mavs put on him. I said chance BTW.

If you think that the 2006 Lakers had a chance to be in the Finals, then its obvious that you're trolling.

Gee, I wonder why Kobe took 27 shots a game.

Smush Parker was a garbage player, who was very inconsistent during the course of both years with the Lakers.

Kwame, who absolutely was garbage on offense, has yet to average 12 ppg.

Brian Cook was another garbage player, both on the offense and defense.

Chris Mihm would have been a great backup center to Bynum, if he kept himself healthy throughout his time with the Lakers.

While I think the 06 lakers were in no way shape or form championship caliber, they're better than they get credit for. The problem when rating players is people don't rate them according to the time they played in. Case and point chris mihm. He was honestly one of the. Better centers in 06. Definately top 10. But he was a top 10 center in a league that had terrible centers. Kwame was a bust as far as number 1 picks go, but he was one of the better bigmen defenders in the league. Odom was good. And smush parker was at worse a very good defender.

I think if they played more of a team game, they win at least 50 and get out of the first round

It's just unfortunate that the Western Conference was super crazy. 8 seed in the West = top 4 in the East. Didn't half the top 8 in the East have a losing record that year? Or was it the year before...or after.

LOL didn't say anything bad about Kobe and his legions come out to his rescue. They have to call other players scrubs. I mean 19/11/5 ON 50% are scrub numbers in the post season. 13/7 on 52% is pretty good for a big and he averaged only one and a half to's in those playoffs, his best play ever btw. Walton 12/6 , only Smush played bad, playing D on a Suns PG can hurt you, though.

Finally a quality post. Mihm getting injured hurt our chances big time. Kwame was playing great one on one D that season, though. I doubt most of these stans watched one game that year.

Lakers had a EASY ride to Finals once they get pass by the Elite Suns that year.

No Doubt Kobe would of Torched the Clipz and Mavs just like he did during the season. Bottom line No One could stop Kobe that year on defense, Playing better O against the Lakers at the time was best way to neutralize Kobe which Suns did best with Fast Pace style.

Anyone who dont understand this obviously is a Kobe hater or just didnt follow NBA at the time.

The Mavs would be favored big in the WCF, but we had a chance to beat them. Same with the Heat. How am I trolling?
