as i was watching the laker vs portland game yesterday, it reminded me how dominant the lakers were.. i think those lakers can beat our lakers now... we can will probably get 2 wins against them, so 00 lakers 4 vs 09 lakers 2 what do you guys think?

oh and WOW @ portland's line up back then.. deep as HELL

I think this team has it's chances ... Shaq should probably own Drew. The present Kobe will own the old Kobe (experience is the key). I think Pau can be the difference maker in a game like this. I think the current bench is deeper than the old one...

Shaquille O'Neal at his best. In his most dominant form. Give me that Shaq with that fiery Kobe any day of the week.

Great topic. I agree that the experienced Kobe would "own" the younger Kobe, but the Shaquille O'Neal on that team was such a dominant player that he would have swatted away Bynum like a fly and he dominated the paint so much that help from AC Green and Robert Horry is all you would have needed to throw off Gasol. I agree that this year's team is a little deeper, but Shaq's dominance and his 1-2 punch with Kobe, combined with plenty of depth (Horry, Fox, Fish, Rice, AC Green, Ron Harper), would have defeated this year's Lakers in a 7 game series no problem. Sometimes we forget how great Shaq was.

I think it'd be a 6 game series; Our current team has great depth, but Shaq's dominance would be too much to overcome.

2000 kobe would be blowing by this kobe every five seconds

but this kobe would put up 40 on himself just because he'd want to be known as the best kobe

people dont realize how good kobe was at that time

shaq would manhandle bynum, gasol

fish now though would work the 2000 fish

the veteran tea would school the young team, that being said, our current crop has a better overall backcourt, so i would say a 6 game series with the 2000 team winning...THINK BOSTON, our grit could get us a couple of games, but that team had Shaq and Frobe whose defense was supersick
Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers

2000 would put FOX on 2004 Kobe

Horry would guard Pau and neutralize

Nobody could guard 2000 Shaq. Bynum would be in foul trouble. And we'd be in trouble after that due to no backup center.

2000 Kobe is too quick so Ariza would be assigned to him but he'd still be scoring at will
Gooden>> Lamar Odom. Mo Williams>> Ray Allen>> Gasol. Nene= Gasol.

Philip would use all 18 available fouls from Bynum, Mbenga and Mihm against Shaq.

I still remember so many buzzer beaters from that team.. Great memories. Shaq was too dominant that year and Kobe was just too fast.. That cross over he did on Pippen and lob to Shaq was insane.
