In Response to Re: Laker 8-peat : Like I said, every team in the NBA misses the playoffs at some point.
And that makes missing the playoffs a good thing? You don't have to stress your loser mentality all the time...
The objective of every NBA team is to win a championship.
so your team succeeded 17 times and failed 48 times.
17-48 vs 16-47? what are you bragging about? it's a tie in standings.
If what you're saying is true then the Lakers should already have 18 championships by now. The only reason why the Lakers kept making it to the Finals is because of the weak western conference in the 80s. Remember 1987 west finals, Lakers vs. Sonics? Or the 1988 west finals, Mavs vs. Lakers? Sonics with Tom Chambers and Michael Cage. Mavs with Rolando Blackman and James Donaldson. Ugh!
And you tell me the Celtics missed the playoffs 16 times, plus a 9-peat for failing to get out of the 1st round, is due to a tough east? Who are you kidding here? No matter how you must you cry, making the finals is better than failing to get out of the first round.
How is it that I advocate losing when I'm the one counting championships and you're the one counting missed playoffs?
Simple, because you are not just counting the championships, otherwise you wouldn't keep yapping about the Lakers' 8-peat lost finals.
You: the Lakers were 8-peat losers
I: the Celtics missed the playoffs 16 times while failed to get past the 1st round in a true 9-peat.
You: I am only counting championships.
I: 17-48 vs 16-47
So no matter how you play this game, counting championships only, or counting the non-championship years, you are still toasted.
