Who needs a damn bench when you got an All Star line up like that? They could produce 95 points per game just on the starting line up by themselves. Add in a few bench points and your looking at leading the entire NBA in points per game for a team. Plus the excellent defence we would get out of this squad, tight defence in the back court and the kind of box out defence you would get in the front court with Malone and Shaq sitting on the block, who would ever come into the lane? That cancles out San Antonio's hope to repeat as they rely on getting shots up in the lane. Not to mention Gary Payton canceling out Jason Kidd if he were to go to San Antonio so how the hell would they ever be effective against us? All we would have to do is give the ball to Kobe and let him go to work. Not to mention Shaq's revenge he will be seeking next year. That would leave only 2 teams in the entire NBA would could actualy take us to a series in the playoffs and thats assuming one of them gets bigger, yes that would be Dallas. If they dont, we are just looking at Sacramento who would possibly win a few games against us, mabie 2, but thats being nice only cuz i respect them. Shaq is set to have a monsterous MVP season next year and Kobe will be set to play the more all around game like i listed above in the predicted stats if we do end up getting Malone and payton. All in all, this spells atleast a repeat, mabie another 3 peat if we keep updated and healthy. then we could try for 4 once more!!!!!
Quoting Shaq on one of his spontainious freestyles durring practices:
"I stay paid niggaaa, I live laid niggaaa, I've been rappen ever since the third grade niggaaa".
