Default Now people see how 2009 Lakers had the easiest path to championship

Kobe is 2009 had probably the easiest path to championship in history.

-Garnett was injured, no Boston to beat up Lakers in the finals

-Yao Ming got injured, and the Rockets lead by Ron Artest took Lakers to 7 games

-Meets up the Magic team lead by Dwight Howard with Turkoglu as their second best player...

This is so funny seeing Laker fans shit on Ron Artest and Dwight Howard for being scrubs, when they were Kobe's opponents during the 2009 playoff run, shows you how weak laker's competition was. I bet 1000$ that Boston would of beat Lakers in the finals if it weren't for KG getting injured

The 2009 Laker's playoff run and Kobe's 4th ring really deserve an asterix after it. (So kobe has 4* + 1 rings).

The Nuggets were great.

The Nuggets had a chance of winning if they knew how to make successful inbound passes

with Melo and Billups struggling while the series progressed didn't help them either

lebron had to go to boston every year and met the mavericks(who swept the lakers) and the thunder in the finals, how was that easy?

Lakers only had to face a rockets team lead by ron artest and a magic team lead by dwight, lol

This is so funny seeing Heat fans shit on lakers opponents for being scrubs, when lebron needed injuries to 2 biggest stars in the east during the 2012 playoff run along with the help of Wade and Bosh, shows you how weak heat's competition was.

The 2012 Heat's playoff run and Lebron's 1st ring really deserve an asterix after it. (So Lebron has 1* ring).

Eastern conference is one good team to beat to the Finals at the MOST (lebron wouldn't have even sniffed an nba finals in the west, before the heat teamming up). That aside, Lebron chose the easy path by backstabbing his city a joining forces with the competition in such a phagottry way none nba great has ever done.

What's funny about that? Granted, Boston was the best team in the East with a healthy, pre-injury KG, but I don't get what's funny about a team led by Dwight Howard. That very same year before the playoffs even started, Phil Jackson was quoted as saying he'd pick Dwight to start a team. I think the best defensive player in the league who gives you 21/14/3 on 57% is pretty formidable. Plus, anyone with the mental capacity to analyze a team knows that you can't judge a team merely by their best player, or even top 2 players. Teams have won championships without a player as good as Dwight, and many others have been legit contenders.
