    Bulls not even close to 70% of their full potential, that is.

    Dunno, but they were closer to their full potential and ended the Heat's streak. That should say something.

    LeBron needs to go to the worst team possible. In fact, all teams should have max 2 good or great players. A lot of my friends stopped watching NBA because it's too predictable now, with few teams having great players and the rest having average to good players. I'd actually like to see LeBron play for someone like the Jazz or Bobcats, see how many wins he gives them.

    Re: The Basketball Thread

    lebron played for Cleveland long enough. one of the worst team he still carried them to the final. in fact good players playing for horrible team and organization is bad, cuz it's dragging them down. the NBA always been like that, few team competing among themselves at the top and the rest being there just for the numbers.west being good and east garbage collector with only 2,3 teams standing out. nothing changed mate. it was all about lakers and celtics before, at least now those 2 ain't winning shit anymore. the bulls had their 2x triplets now that the heat have their first back to back in their franchise history suddenly everyone seems to have complains lol. if your friend stopped to watch the NBA now then i don't know what he was watching before cuz it's all the same, it's just different team that are packed.

    Re: The Basketball Thread

    Actually, there were more great players spread evenly.

    Jordan played for the Bulls
    Barkley played for the Suns
    Ewing played for the Knicks
    O'Neal and Bryant played for the Lakers, O'Neal played for Magic before that
    Reggie Miller for the Pacers
    and many more that I dunno right now.

    Now, you have LeBron, Wade, and Bosh playing for the Heat, Duncan, Parker, and Ginobili playing for the Spurs, Garnett, Pierce, and Deron playing for the Nets, Westbrook and Durant playing for the Thunder, Harden and Howard playing for the Rockets, and who else? Either way, it'd be more fun to see LeBron play for a crappy team. He'd definitely help even the Knicks' chances of possibly making it to the playoffs, hypothetically.

    No doubt the Heat are good, I'm not saying they're not. Wade, LeBron, Ray, Bosh, and Andersen are great players, with LeBron possibly one of the best of this era. Though they may have won the playoffs twice in some suspicious manners, they still got as far as they did and were successful because of the talent.

    The problem is there are too many teams. Unless they actually go forward with retraction some day, we'll have a ton of garbage teams. Either that, or more international players will have to come and join the league.

    That is a little bit off. Shaq and Kobe played together later, after the others were past there prime, or retired. Their prime was the early 2000's, the rest peaked in the early to mid 90's. Shaq in Orlando was a little like Lebron in Cleveland. He was so great that he made them a contender. Those Magic teams were a little better (but not much) than Leborn's Cleveland teams, until Penny Hardaway got hurt.

    Scav is right, the NBA historically has been dominated by a small number of franchises at a time. The Celtics and Lakers teams from the 80's (golden age of the NBA) were built just like the Heat. The Celtics had Bird, Kevin Mchale, and Robert Parish. The Lakers had Magic, Kareem, and James Worthy. That is six of the 50 greatest players ever on two teams. If you look at any era, going back to the 60's, only four or five teams at a time really contend. The era with the most parity, the 70's, was also the worst era in NBA history. That was the time, before Magic and Bird, that the NBA finals were aired on tape delay.

    What about the 90s? NBA still had a lot more different teams with great players than they do now. Rockets, Bulls, Lakers (?), Magic, Pistons, Knicks, Heat.. I don't know much about NBA back then though.

    Jordan was in his prime during the 90's. The Bulls dominated everyone, except during Jordan's retirements. It wasn't even close. The Knicks, Pacers, Sonics, and Jazz were consistent contenders, but could never get past Jordan. The Rockets took advantage of Jordan's first retirement, but were not consistent contenders throughout the decade. There were other good teams, some made deep play off runs, but they were not dominant teams.

    The Lakers were not that good during the 90's. They usually made the play-offs, but as mid, or low, seeds. They did not become contenders again until they signed Shaq, in the late 90's. The Pistons were more of an 80's team, they were past their prime by the early 90's. The Heat were a solid team after Riley took over, in the mid to late 90's, but they were never a great team. Watching the Knicks and Heat back then was agony. Slow, defense oriented basketball. The NBA changed the rules because of them, eliminating hand checking. Jordan would average 50 a game if he played now. The Sonics were the best during the 90's. Everyone seems to have forgotten those teams. Shawn Kemp and Gary Payton were awesome together.

    the problem is he want that 6th ring he'll never get. his team is too bad,lot of good team in the west, the coach horrible, the new owner a joke, he's getting old, piling injury and it'll take years to rebuild the Lakers. by that time he'll be a fossil already.
