There's shoulda woulda coulda's in every series. I could easily say if Walton hits the wide open 3(in a year he was one of the better 3 point shooters in the league at THAT time, yes its hard to believe but true) in game one we'd have swept them
Haha but my final underlining point is they were clearly a better team. They beat us twice regardless of how it happened they beat us. Thats like denver fans saying oh WE took LA to 7 games and once before 6 games in the WCF, the underlying fact is we were the better team. Suns were the better team, they beat us without Amare and then wacked us with Amare. We had Phil Jackson then too.
To be champions you got to have luck to be honest Spurs dont win in 2007 without a bit of luck. Amare suspension is one, Dallas being knocked out by a 41 win team is another lol. LUCK, TALENT, PEAKING, CHEMISTRY wins you championships, need all factors to go in your favour.
Even boston 2008 no Bynum, No Ariza... Lakers had the biggest meltdown in game 4. 2009 KG was out of the way that year, courtney lee missed a wide open layup, Dwight missed 2 free throws against us that woulda iced game 4 to tie it 2-2... 2010 we got some lucky bounces in game 7, Kendrick got injured etc etc etc. Need everythign to click for you to win a championship
Only team I can say of recent mind that didnt lucky was the 2012 Heat, they just steamrolled through I never had any doubt they wouldnt win lol, they even did it without bosh for the whole pacer and half of boston series lol.
Laker fan for life.
