the lakers barely got it done in 2000 and 2002 with the BEST guard or 2nd best guard in the nba
they needed kobes epic clutch performances in the wcf game 7... then in game 4 in the finals in 2000
they needed kobes 30+ppg averages in the WC playoffs in 2002. he was huge. they barely got it done. without kobes pull with the refs they dont make it past the kings ( i'l admit it )
then in 2001 they blasted their competition. but kobe was averaging 30ppg in the playoffs. who else can do that as a 2nd option guard? no one.. he averaged like 40ppg against sanantionio... any "good" guard can substatute that? LOL
man they dont win any of those 3 titles without kobe because it was a 2 man team 90% of the time... it was kobe and shaq
not shaq, a legendary team with a kobe kicker.... it wasnt like the bulls. they needed 2 legends to get it done
why else do you think shaq couldnt get it done with penny? he was great. but not legendary...
and the only other time shaq got it done was with a dwyane wade that played legendary
shaq needs more than just a "good" 2nd option. history proved it
so STFU BUM... sit down sonny boi
