Pretty funny that Hughes is the one to say things like this.
This is the same guy that ran collison over last year in the playoffs and dislocated rondos elbow a couple years ago. Not to mention countless other times he has out-punked every body else in the nba.Makes me angry!!!! he tries to act all innocent when he is the biggest punk in the nba
Biggest punk? nah..dude isn't even top 5..He's got alot more stunts to pull before he reaches the Reggie Evans/MWP/KG Mt. Rushmore of punk-ness
Another thing that I don't understand is why the 2003-2004 Lakers are considered such a failure. They made the finals and although they lost to a team that they were favoured against it's not like it wasn't because of how good the Pistons were. Malone's injury also played a part but I digress.
I'm well aware their goal was to win the championship and they failed, but the way in which they are used in comparisons it comes off as if they were swept in the first round of the players.
You didn't answer the question, JM, just reinforced what I was saying which is that not all teams can win the championships and it's not really fair to say that if one team doesn't win it all that they should be thought of as a colossal failure.
They had one year and once chance to do something that only 1 out of the 30 possible teams accomplishes each year. They fell short, but not by a lot, and given the circumstances it's not like that result should have been as surprising as it was.
technically they had a 1/30 chance in winning. they were one out of 30 teams in the beginning of the season that had a shot at a championship.
I'm curious as to why they are brought up as the worst ever comparison and something that you don't want to replicate. I'm not sure how a finals appearance in the first year of a team coming together can be seen as such a failure and a thing that you don't want to happen. Didn't the exact same thing happen to Heat? They won in their second year together, but that never had a chance to do that, for a variety of reasons.
I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHY THE 03-04 LAKERS ARE BROUGHT UP AS A BAD THING ALL THE TIME, JM, CAN YOU JUST ANSWER THE QUESTION. 3
