Facing the 5-6-7 seeds in their conference and the 3 seed from the East with no Kobe, no Rondo, no Rose, no Russ, no Lee, no Gallo, no Granger, not having to see Durant, CP3, Melo or LeBron,
It would also be Pop's 3rd title in which Phil Jackson didn't coach that season.
Be a bigger asterisk next to this title than the 99 season. Absolutely serious.
We played the teams that we were assigned to play, its not like we chose to not play OKC... We would have beat the Thunder regardless with no Harden, you've seen an entire season of what that was like. Why were CP3 and Melo mentioned like either of their teams were true title contenders? They wouldnt have made it far enough to play SA regardless and if they did by some odd chance they definitely would have lost.
Yeah because Phil Jackson coaching a team would have made a difference this year. Unless he coaches Miami the team he was running would have lost.
Again with this asterisk in 99 talk. Why is there an asterisk next to that? Because of the shortened season, the same shortened season that every other team was on thus making it a completely level playing field? I never hear this kind of talk about last years season......

You played an 8 seed in the FInals bruh, come on.
And I didn't suggest that you picked and chose your opponets, I'm speaking to the FACT that you will have faced the absolute softest playoff schedule of all time to win a title. (IF, you face Indy, and IF you win) Period. By no means am I saying that you chose anything, it's just how it goes.
Melo/CP3 in terms of biggest/best stars in the game, you will have faced none of them. Hence, the point.
And sorry, if Pop wins #5, and 3 of them are when Phil Jackson ain't coaching, and Phil is 4-1 against Pop in the playoffs, *shrugs* I find it humorous is all. Pop wins when Phil ain't around. Thas all.
