You are living in the past and I doubt you are even old enough to have any legitimate perspective of the BOSTON teams of the 60's.
That said San Antonio has a better playoff track record than the Lakers over the past 15 years. They just closed the show with a championship in one of the best displays of precision offense and team defense ever seen.
The Lakers are a team in distress because of a history of defying common sense. The last three years alone is ample proof that the Lakers are not in tune with today's NBA. If I say the Lakers are in deep trouble it is because it is true. Unfortunately there are too many fans that are not able to divorce their emotions from the reality of the current situation.
Dismissing Duncan is petty and inaccurate. His role is to lead just like Kobe. Kobe carried the offense for years, but Duncan set the standard for being prepared focused and consistent. His impact on the Success of the Spurs can not be over stated and ironically seldom is. It's hilarious that you dis Duncan while he is celebrating his 5th Championship because he executes according to a system. Whereas you laud Kobe for essentially disrupting one.
lmao what an ignorant thing to say. Actually, one of the obvious post to talk ish once again about kobe.
Duncan, Parker, Ginobili (sp). and Pop. Add in leonard, and green, and mills.
Duncan has had a consistent system surround him that his FO handled amazingly.
The majority of players that Kobe won rings with are GONE, his head HOF coach is GONE.
btw, Kobe has had his 5th for awhile before duncan due to his "consistency" and "focus".
