Of course everyone knows that the 2001 playoffs is when the Lakers only lost 1 game and that was agaisnt the Sixers in game 1 of the Finals. You may also remember that this was the playoffs that Shaq kept saying that Kobe was the best player in the league.

I was just watching the Kings and Spurs series of the 2001 Playoffs, and Kobe and Shaq's numbers were absolutely ridiculous in those series. Going into game 3 of the 2001 WCF's against the Spurs, Shaq and Kobe attributed to 59% of the teams points. Shaq's PPG at home were 35.8 and 18.3 RPG and 23.6 PPG and 13.6 RPG on the road. Kobe's PPG at home were 27.3 and 35.8 PPG on the road. It was clear that Shaq got more touches and dominated at home and Kobe was more aggressive on the road and closed games out. The Lakers weren't even a great defensive team during the regular season that year, but in the playoffs they stepped it up. We know that the team had two unstoppable players, but they also had underrated role players that defended and hit big shots. It seemed like everyone knew their role on that team.

Yeah, Fish was averaging like 14 ppg and he was on fire from the 3-point line in the Spurs series.

depends if shaq got in shape or not all his teammates said he was lazy i think he lost that motivation to win a ring and when he went to miami he was motivated to win a ring because of the peak of the whole feud with kobe
