Even though I wasn't around back then, I'd not only take the mid-80s Lakers over any other Lakers team, but over any other NBA team past or present.

Those teams had it all: length (they could I'm guessing switch everything on D, as well as play a trap D), athleticism, two of the 10 greatest ever, a third star in Worthy who was also a big-game player, and matchup advantages.

Magic and Worthy were big matchup advantages over the Celtics and probably the 90s Bulls.

I'm just not sure whether the '85 or '87 Lakers were better.

2000-2001, Shaq was the most dominant force I have seen in the league. That playoff run is legendary. The fact that they somewhat coasted during the regular season and people said they were done made the playoffs more special.


The only thing that could stop them was ~10 days off between the WCF and Game 1 of the Finals.

And even then it took a herculean effort from AI to force OT and barely beat them
