[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Laker 8-peat : It's simple, there are a lot of factors why you don't make the playoffs. Poor management and misfortune have a lot to do with it. But the Celtics are the only team to lose 2 active players, in less than 10 years, due to death. How many active Laker players died? Great teams are judged by their performance when they reach the championship game. [/QUOTE]
See, when everything fails, just make things up.
So when you don't make the playoffs, it doesn't count against you.
But when you reach the finals and lost, it counts against you.
Great teams are judged by their overall performance, not something you make up out of thin air.
Your overall performance includes # times you missed the playoffs, # times you reached the SF, # times you reached the F, # times you win the championships.
Of course, for some disturbed fans, great teams is judged by the records in the final alone and # of times in the lottery (or missing the playoffs):
17-4 and 16 times missed the playoffs, 33 times of total success!!!! Hooray!!!
The Lakers are poor in that department. 16-15 is just not great. The Celtics also already beat the Lakers in a finals game 7 on the Lakers home floor. When did the Lakers beat the Celtics in the Celtics home floor in a game 7 of a finals?

The Lakers are poor in a department you cherry pick, so I don't care.
Tell me, which team has lost the most # of home game 7 in NBA history?
What's the average margin of defeat?
I can easily select a department against you, not to mention the # times your team missing the playoffs...
