Kobe dragged this dysfuntional unit to 3 Finals & 2 Championships!!
Didnt this team go 6-3 WITHOUT KOBE AND BYNUM at one point.. You could have gotten rid of Kobe and Bynum and they still make it to the WCF ..
They had Artest who led the Rockets the year before to a 7 game series vs LAKERS in the playoffs. WITHOUT YAO. They had HOF PAU, Bynum was about to turn into an all star and Fish as their leader.. Odom was playing at a high level coming off the bench.. In the east Odom would have been an all star..
Their competition was garbage as well.. And they got big help from the refs in GAME 7 OF THE FINALS.. I must admit I was ok with that since I made some nice money on that FINALS..
