WhatIfSports.com got the kinks out of its simulation machine in time to take the top 8 Lakers title teams and the top 8 Celtics title teams and pit them up against one another… bracket style.
Boston may have won 59-percent of the time in the Tournament of
Champions title game, but the Celtics' average margin of victory was
less than one point if you take into account all the simulations.
Though morale victories, simulated or not, are look down upon in the
sporting world, it is yet something Lakers' fans can hang their hat on.
Hang your hat on nothin…
We C's fans will argue that the '86 championship team is the best NBA team of all time. That team was LOADED. Just look at that roster. You can match that team up against any other NBA team ever… I don't care who… and they'd win a series.
