    In Response to Re: What's with the Lakers schedule? : Because "greatest player ever" is an individual achievement. As that he won 6 Championships during his career. Also the marketing machine put behind his image is still running after he retired. That means that his "public relevance" and mythos is exponentially multiplied.  Winning 11 when you don't have the personal stats to be "the greatest ever" belies a deference to his teammates, hence sacrificing personal stats for wins.

    Oh, so his 6 rings greater than Russell's 11 is becuase of marketing?

    Besides, Russell's legacy is not his stats, but his winning (11 rings). If those 11 rings made him inferior to the one with 6 rings, that tells you how much people value those 11 rings as compared to 6 in the big-time era.

    And you think Jordan's greatness isn't about winning? You have more to learn about basketball than you realize...

    Funny I find them to be the most unattractive in sports history.  Never have I hated a team more.

    In Response to Re: What's with the Lakers schedule? : ' If you don't like Lakers fans on this board, you can make this forum private that requires presence of Celtics season tickets as well as background check. As for a public forum, this is what you get. You get people tooting the same horn as you but you also get people who tell you the cruel truth. Show me a rule that this forum is opened only to Celtic fanatics. I don't speak for other Laker fans but I sense we have the same objective. Going to the Laker board? why bother? The Laker fans there don't need our help to straighten things out. It's the fans like Headless Lamar (aka BirdisCoward) and p34 HERE that need to be educated. Look at Headless' illogic: if Bynum is not injured there would be no Gasol. I can't believe that he told the same illogic again and again as if telling it frequent enough would make it true. Was Bynum's injury career ending? If not, then why can't Bynum recover on time to play alongside Gasol in the playoffs?

    To educate Celtic fans? Really?

    You trolls are just lucky that the mods on this board are lenient.

    What's illogic is you choosing when to start counting the championships of the Lakers and Celtics.

    The difference between you and me is I'm not trying to educate Laker fans. Expecting Laker fans to bleed green is just stupid. You, on the other hand, try to convert Celtic fans into Laker fans. As if it will happen. It's either you're delusional or a moron.

    If I had thought this thread would be infected with Laker fans I would never have started it.  My only point was the schedule for them was starting so easy. Their pathetic presence on this board is a minor annoyance but begs the question over and over what is wrong with these losers. Go on a Laker BB somewhere where Kobe is not a pampered racist but a hero and Paul Gasol was brought to you in an incredibly intricate deal where Laker personnel just outsmarted all other suitors. And where Ron Artest is not mentally ill but a really good guy.  We can live with you here but what is wrong with all of you?

    In Response to Re: What's with the Lakers schedule? : I live in LA now.  I have spoken with many lakers fans, and called in the local ESPN radio station.  ALL agree on one thing.  In 2008, the lakers realized they couldn't win with Kwame Brown at center, so they HAD to make a trade.  Pau Gasol fell in their laps, who would say no? They also agree that IF Bynum never got hurt, the lakers would not have felt compelled to trade for Gasol.  It's not logic, it's fact.  Even the trolls on here know that.......except for one - the one who thinks he knows more about basketball than all of us.  I'm a ref, but I don't know the rules, according to him.  I did more research than he did on this Gasol trade topic, yet my "logic" is somehow flawed, and I need an education.  If you poll 100 people and 99 agree...................yep, he's the ONE!!
    Posted by hedleylamarr


    I heard that, too.  Didn't they trade a retired player for Gasol?  Don't know, but I know it was well after Bynum got hurt!

    Check the list of the NBA's Top 50.....more than half come from the '50's thru the early '70's.....oh, and there are many black athletes on the list....I assume you weren't around to watch those games......?

    um.....Hollinger happens to be a Laker fan.....I can point you to any number of articles that support the Celtics....but 9-3 and 17-16 should do the trick....and you are talking about the modern NBA?  ......do you really think that sports from the 50's through the '70's were the "old" days?  ....how old are you?  ....baseball.....Mantle, Mays, Snider, Koufax. Spahn......football......Jim Brown, Johnny Unitas, Deacon Jones.....today's athletes might be bigger and stronger....but it doesn't equate to quality....I'll take Babe Ruth over Mark McGuire.....

    That article talks about free-agency.


    You see where it says George Mikan led the Minny Lakers to back to back titles?


    And the last article talks about the 1995-96 Bulls.


    Trying to pull a fast one, OldFarty?

    OldFart, you're the one with low self-esteem. I'm a Celtic fan who doesn't need to go to Laker forums to talk trash. I don't need to educate any NBA fan. You really think you can convince Celtic fans to agree with Laker trolls? If you think you can then you're crazy.

    After the Lakers won Game 7 I congratulated the Laker fans on this board and moved on. I'm not one of those who kept whining about the FT discrepancy of Game 7. Get your facts straight.

     My relatives from California are Laker fans. It's all good because we respect each other. We don't try to "educate" one another.

    That has to be one of the worst lists of championship teams that I've ever seen. But I guess those people are paid to write such articles.

    I agree with number one and a few of the other teams, but in order for me.

    95/96 Bulls
    86/87 Lakers
    64/65 Celtics
    66/67 Sixers
    71/72 Lakers
    96/67 Bulls (great encore performance after 95/96)
    85/86 Celtics
    82/83 Sixers
    70/71 Bucks
    91/92 Bulls

    Just off my list are are the 88/89 Pistons.

    From what I've read and what I've seen basketball has been weakened by expansion and rule changes which have on one hand diluted the league and changed the game invariably into every decade.

    I think that it's actually easier now to compete than in was during the 80's or in earlier decades. I'd like to see the Miami Heat play against the 1989 Pistons under the rules from 1989.

    In Response to Re: What's with the Lakers schedule?:
    In Response to Re: What's with the Lakers schedule? : The main theme in the NBA is about winning the Championship, not about winning the championship only against a particular team. Don't you know that? So you want to count Houston? sure Houston 81, Houston 86 vs 76ers 80, 76ers 82, Pistons 88, Pacers 00, 76ers 01, Nets 02, Magic 09 7-2? So what about them? See, maybe you don't know about that, but the league has more than 2 teams. And there are many years that the Celtics don't make the finals. Those years count too, Oui? Why bother? the Lakers' edge in the big-time era (10-4) is already good enough to make them the best franchise in league history. Go ahead, ask me for the link when John Hollinger name them the #1 franchise. Go ahead and ask. You have the 22 year drought and that make you tied for the #3 franchise in the big-time era, 6 titles behind the Lakers. Don't you know?
