Personally, I think you could take any championship team from the 80's.. Celts, Lakes, Detroit.. and they would be nearly unstoppable in todays NBA. The ATHLETIC ability of todays players is so much higher, but the team play, and selflessnes was so much better then. For isntance... if you go to a pick up game at a college... you could put 5 atheltic dudes on a squad, but get the 5 middle age white dudes together who've played on the same team, and they will absolutly run the younger guys. I've seen it happen a million times. I think the 80's and 90's Bad Boys would run this league today. And I hated them back then. Now I look back and think, Damn, why doesn't anyone play hardnosed team ball today. Peeps are tryin to call the Pacers the new bad boys... but they don't hold a fucking candle to those Pistons. Ahhh the memories.

Lets just say it was the other way around where Kobe was drafted in '84 to the Bulls and Jordan was drafted in '96 to the Lakers...I guarantee you Kobe woulda' been known as the greatest player to ever play by now...You guys ain't even comin' close to me when it comes to basketball knowledge...You guys just THINK you know...Most of you probably haven't even seen Jordan play live...You just follow what you heard...the media makes out Jordan to be the greatest player, but he's not...And Tom, I know who Mark Price is...Little white 3 point shooter who played for the Cavs...Whats your point? Can Mark Price match up to Kobe defensively? LMAO...NO!...Ya'll don't be knowin, and I don't blame ya'll...I blame the marketing system...PeACe

*tryin desperately to get Kobe's dick outta NIK's mouth* lol

anyways, i understand yur a laker fan...and obviously a Kobe fan. But this shit is pretty ridiculous. Its not about marketing. Kobe happens to be lucky enough to be peaking, when Jordan is on the way out. EVERY single player that has EVER been compared to Jordan, has at some point...been shown that they arent on his level. They havent survived the "test of time", that Jordan had. Kobe still hasnt, his popularity is relatively new. Plus, like i said...his prime...is a decade past Jordans...so we cant watch an equal matchup between the 2. You saying that others on here know less then you do, is even funnier...because u couldnt make a rational judgement on thiz shit...based on yur obsession with Kobe. U werent even born yet when Jordan entered the league lol. I aint knockin Kobe on this one, he's actually really good IMO. But to be compared to Jordan, is jus stupid. THAT, is the result of marketing and media. The media ALWAYS needs someone to compare to Jordan, in their attempt to keep fans. No one is being compared to Kobe lol.

As for some of tha other posts on here. I doubt alot of those older....older teams could win many games in todays NBA. Yah, their teamwork was WAY better back then. But, like they say...u cant teach speed. Todays players are WAY too athletic. Can u imagine 30 yrs ago, having a 6'10"-7'0" leading the fast break lol. I dunno how many of u play ball, but whoever made the comment about the "middle aged white guys" winning in a street ball game (sorry if i misquoted some shit), i wanna know where yall live? lol. Cus if yall ever get into sum real shit, yall would know jus how good sum streetballerz are. Ive known and played wit ballers that could be in the NBA tomorrow, if they decided. One muhafucka we used tah ball wit got calls frum tha Lakers even, cuz he dropped 48 points on Kidd in a game down here. Stu Lances son used tah ball at our rec too, he tried out for tha lakers as well. And on top of it, NBA players used to come down to tha courts and play in bullshit leagues ova tha summer...and get killed.

Anywayz, Kobe is far from the greatest ever. Maybe one day he will be...but like i said, Griffey was in the same position...and shit happens. And, teams from 30 yrs ago wouldnt stand a chance in todays game. Shit, i could prolly be in the NBA if i went back in time 30 yrs, and i aint played fah real in like 2 yrs LOL!

^^ Didn't say street ball. Was talking about pick up games on campus. Ball State. I've seen a group of middle aged dudes hold the court for the better part of 2 hours against 4 or 5 good athletic pick up squads. Never seen a street ball game in my life so I'm not speaking about that. Just college kids.

u guys give shaq too much credit.  its Phil Jackson that helped the Bulls, its Phil Jackson that helped the Lakers.  Kobe and Shaq got humiliated in the playoffs without Phil. The Bulls couldnt get over that hump without Phil and it was when the Bulls got Scottie, and a better supporting cast for JOrdan.  Shaq this, Shaq that God dammit, its not SHaq.

you are givin Phil way too much credit...almost any coach in tha world could have taken tha bulls to tha finals wiht jordan, pippen and rodman all playing great...shit rodman getting like what 15-20 boards a nite, jordan doing whatever he wants to opponets whenever he want, ,and pippen doing a little bit of everything, then phil goes with tha lakers where he got shaq and kobe...come on of course they are gonna to do....dont get me wrong phil is a good coach but everyone gives him too much credit, he aint out there bustin his ass 48 minutes a game like tha players....lets see phil go tha clippers, bring them to tha finals than i'll agree with you.
