post #26086 of 27359

Jet, what would you say when Lebron comes to play for Lakers? Also history matters if there is continuity, inheritance from the the past to the present and into the future, which you can clearly see in teams like Spurs for last 20 years or in Dallas or in Heat transitioning from the Lebron era into present. In the case of Lakers there is nothing of the sorts. The team is pure garbage now and there is no championship DNA left in its bloodline. The whole franchise needs to be completely rebuild to become great again.

The Lakers had it pretty good, winning 5 championships in only 11 years (2000-2010). That is pretty impressive since it was so recent, and since the first 3 had very different rosters than the last 2. Oddly enough they must've been even better in the 80s when they took only 9 years to win 5 championships (1980-1988)

 

The Spurs took 16 years to win the same amount (1999-2014). If you remove the fifth one, then it took only 9 years to win 4 (1999-2007). I guess the impressive part here is that Duncan, Ginobili, and Parker were always Spurs when you consider the 7 year gap between #4 and #5.

 

Interestingly enough, there is almost always some sort of dynasty (or team that wins a bunch of rings within the given timespan)  in the NBA. Not sure what all the factors are that contribute to this are, but it's possible that the Warriors (or some other team, perhaps the Cavs or Thunder) could be the next one with the Spurs getting old and LeBron leaving the Heat.

 

2000-2010: Lakers win 5 in 11 years

1999-2014: Spurs win 5 in 16 years

1991-1998: Bulls win 6 in 8 years

1980-1988: Lakers win 5 in 9 years

1974-1986: Celtics win 5 in 13 years

1957-1969: Celtics win 11 in 13 years

1950-1954: Lakers win 4 in 5 years

 

In addition to the above, there are of course a few teams that won 2-3 rings in a short timespan too that fill in some of the gaps. The Warriors, Cavs, or Thunder might even turn out to be one of these.

 

2006-2013: Heat win 3 in 8 years

1994-1995: Rockets win 2 in 2 years

1989-1990: Pistons win 2 in 2 years

1970-1973: Knicks win 2 in 4 years

No my friend championships always matter, banners hang forever. Lmao @ bringing up spurs and dallas as examples of the opposite in the most recent 15 years.

Banners don't win games. You like to ridicule people but because you cannot even express yourself clearly at least half of the time it is not clear what do you try to say and where does the ridicule lie.

Dallas is consistently making the play-offs year after year having pretty mediocre roster of players. This is a tangible achievement. How is the Lakers banner from 1950s helping them in year 2016?

Me: History matters.

You: Banners don't win championships.

I believe this is what they call a strawman unless I'm mistaken.

Gotta go to work no time for this nonsense.

Exactly, says the guy who resells ties on a clothing forum lmao.

I used to live the miserable corporate life, now I smoke aged cuban cigars and drink craft beer while working.

Again, we'll be using all the banners to dry our tears.
