Default This laker team proves stars have little to do with winning titles

Its a team team

Coaching/Defense/rebounding/chemistry/depth/durability wins championships...


Watching my team this year has made me wake up and realise my idol kobe bryant and other legends throughout history were just lucky to be in the right position to succeed. It helps to be great. But its a team game. Teams win championships... I no longer care how many titles individuals have

Irs a sad day when you realise all the hero drama/hype was just some made up movie script invented in order to add spice to a game where 90% of its players are an afterthought.

Well i for one am no longer interested in jordans or kobes or wilts or lebrons...

Now its about lakers and bulls and celtics and spurs

Okay. So Miami getting two all-stars, and being able to make two straight Finals appearances and win one is not an example of stars having to do something with winning titles? Mind boggling.

gotta say 100 percent agree...although I wouldnt get too down about that...stars are a big reason that championships are won...kobe and others were the biggest reasons for winning those titles...its just that we all (myself included) can sometimes get caught up in seeing big names thrown together when in reality it doesnt matter if they can't play together well...look at those lakers 2009 and 2010 championship teams...kobe was the star...had the perfect star sidekick and the perfect role players to compliment him...on paper you would think that this laker team would blow the title teams out the water but you look at those teams and you see kobe the scorer, pau the post up guy, fisher spot up shooter/clutch shooter when kobe was doubled, ariza the defensive stopper and so on...but yea im sure you get my point

Default Re: This laker team proves stars have little to do with winning titles

well, sure you need balance with rebound/scoring/defense/execution/individual matchups/team chemistry/depth/diverse types of players/etc/etc/etc but you need that closer to make big shots in the play offs to win it all

like the Nuggets look like a real good balanced team but lacks that Tony Parker, D Rose, or Kobe....
