Yeah, he played for the second half of the season, which is plenty of time to redevelop that chemistry that they had just a season and half prior.
Plus he was off playing baseball, doing athletic shit, so it wasn't like he was sitting around getting fat.
They had no answer for Shaq. Sucks for them.

Thats like saying that if Jordan had played the entire 94-95 season, they would have still been a 5 seed. We dont know what would have happened, but I would put the house on at least a 2 seed, and maybe even a 1 seed.

And for damn sure, Jordan wouldnt have gotten swept in the damn Finals, rather they would have won it.

Those Rockets championships would come with asteriskeseseses. A more experienced Pacer or Bulls team would have wrecked them, and dont get me started on the Finals before that.

The Rockets :lol

Lebron making 8 straight Finals impressive no doubt, but did he ever beat any great teams in the East to get there?  I'm too lazy to look it up, but it seems all the teams in the East have been shitty, including this year's Celtics who were missing their 2 best players.   Also during 4 of those 8 years he was part of the Wade-Bosh-LBJ triumvirate, so he better damn have made it out of the East.

This is right.

LeBron has stayed healthy and has had sustained excellence.

But he's not the best player ever.

Jordan came back that year when there were only 17 games left in the regular season  -the Bulls weren't quite in sync and he was 45 Jordan, not 23 Jordan, and everyone knows this. The next year they added Rodman and came back with a vengeance with their record setting 72-10 season, while Orlando was still a formidable team that got the 2nd-seed and made the Conference Finals pretty easily.  However, once they got there the Bulls swept them, and yes, Shaq was still on that team, he would leave for L.A. that offseason.

Sounds like they won because of Rodman, not Jordan  :angel:

This whole therad is about as useful as a white crayon.  Better (and more fun) topic: best NBA nicknames.

Some likely candidates:

Dr. J
Magic Johnson
John "Hot Plate" Williams
Charles "The Round Mound of Rebound" Barkley
Pistol Pete Maravich
Vinny "The Microwave" Johnson
Chuck "The Rifleman" Person
Robert "The Chief" Parish
Kobe "The Black Mamba" (or "Steak" if you know your Jungle gloss)

...all without the nicks and cuts of a blade. :monkey2

Speaking of nicknames, Ive always hated the moniker CP3 because it takes longer to say than Chris Paul.
