[QUOTE]In Response to Re: What's with the Lakers schedule? : The Celtics obviously lost to other teams but as the conversation was about the specific Lakers-Celtics franchises I didn't feel the need to deviate as other people do. I mean I could have mentioned your losses to Houston as an example where you didn't reach the Finals and we did but I decided to stick to the main theme. [/QUOTE]
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
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?
And if the NBA started in the "big-time" era and the Lakers dominated that era, why is it that you still can't surpass Boston in Championships. [/QUOTE]
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.
I mean we did have a 22 year drought and you still couldn't do it. [/QUOTE]
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?
