I hate to say it but the reason why it was easy was A because they are a 1 seed so they only had to play the 8 and 4 seeds right off the bat and B because the Nuggets and Heat made it farther than expectd.

The thing that this video leaves out is how good was the team that won the championship, compared to the teams it faced. So in a team argument, that doesn't matter, but in the GOAT debate it does. According to this list, the 2017 and 2018 warriors had a pretty average path to the finals, but we all know KD had an easy path to the championships because his team was so stacked in comparison to its competition

The measure doesn’t compare teams across eras though. So who is better, 2016 Warriors or Spurs from 2008 ? How do we know The “easy” teams in 2020 are not better than the “hard” teams in earlier eras?

You can't measure this, this is stupid. Because the 80s were the toughest decade, doesn't matter if it was just 23 teams. Don't believe me, just ask Jordan. He couldn't do anything for 7 years against those teams. A number one team in the 90s or 2000s, would've been an 8th seed in the 80s which is why this is stupid.
Ahmed King
Ahmed King Pred 6 dnevi
And I want yall to know something. I grew up in the 80s and 90s. The 80s was the toughest era of basketball ever. And the NBA was sorry in the 90s. The competition on both sides were weak at best. Jordan face 1 maybe Hall of in 3 of his Championship runs and then he 2 hall of famers in 3 of his Championship runs. None of the teams or players had ever won a championship that Jordan played and beat in the finals, except for the Lakers. Who comes up with this BS. Just another way to devalue his accomplishments
funyppl Pred 6 dnevi
This analysis just doesn't make sense to me. First, it won't take into account things like injuries to either the championship team or their opponents, which could make their run easier or harder. Second, it doesn't take into account how strong the championship team itself is. A strong team should have an easier time against strong opponents and a weak team should have a harder time against strong opponents. Thus, "cinderella" and dark horse runs are weighted exactly the same as all-time great teams. You can't compare the 2011 Mavs with the Shaq-Kobe Lakers like that. Finally, with regards to this year's Lakers, SRS won't take into account the bubble and the pandemic which undoubtedly played a huge role in the playoff run. Overall SRS just feels super hand-wavy and flawed when it comes to judging playoff runs like this.

I like the video but I still think you can't compare every year exactly as it is. If in one generation the teams are not that good then automatically even an average team can have an higher srs then a good team in another year. And in my opinion the average teams today are better then then the average teams in the 90s for example.

I like. I would add some metrics to the results of the playoffs themselves. A) a sweep is more convincing than a 7th game win B) to the Sixers example - if they beat 3 teams some with stronger SRS, then they should get some of that as "virtual SRS" points.

Alejandro Lozano Aguas
The only issue I have with this is, as always, referring to these as "Kobe's championships." He was the second banana for 3 of them, and advanced metrics place him at the same level of importance as Pau Gasol for the latter two. If you want to say that any championship is X player's and player X is the best player on team, then three of those "Kobe championships" are really Shaq's.
TITAN DMC Pred 13 dnevi
Contradiction u just said how easy Brons path was then highlight had bad the Cavs were total foolishness.The 80s were entirely toucher in the sense that u had 2 of the greatest teams ever against one another in Lakers vs Celtics.Now lets really talk the bad boy pistons clearly had the hardest championship runs having to go through Boston and the Lakers are u kidding the EYE TEST wins again.

Jackson Huang Pred 13 dnevi
This kind of analysis is simply not informative. Sum of a series of scores does reflect some properties of a set of data, however, not all of them. More importantly, the properties that summing cannot represent are actually very crucial on evaluating the difficulty of a championship. One of these properties is the difference between the highest score of the opponents that a championship team beats and themselves. Another one is that how good the league is at that specific year. The reason is simple, ask yourself, will 2017 GSW win the 2020 title with the same difficulty if we swap them with 2020 lakers? Think about it, what the probability is for 2018 Cavs to beat a team with 2 all stars, one of which is a superstar, and what the probability is for them to beat a team with 4 all star, two of which are superstars, and a bunch excellent role players. The probability for a specific team to beat another team that is superior than them is significantly smaller than he probability for them to beat another team that is not obviously better than them. For example, suppose there is a team with SRS of 7, to win champion they need to beat 4 teams with SRS rating 4, 5, 6, 7 respectively (summing up to 22). Suppose the chance they beat a team that has the same or less SRS is higher than 50% (which is a fair assumption). Then, the probability they win a champion is the probability they beat all 4 teams, which is at least 0.5^4 = 6.25%. However, what if the four teams they have to beat have SRS rating of 2, 3, 4, 13 (again, summing up to 22)? What is the probability of team with SRS of 7 beats a team with SRS with 13? Did anyone think there is at least 6.25% chance for 2016 Cavs to beat 2016 GSW when they were down 3-1? In conclusion, what I am trying to say is that simply summing up the SRS scores to evaluate the difficulty of a champion is nonsense. You cannot say because Kobe & Shaq in their 3 peat had the opponents with some of the highest sum of SRS scores, their championships worth more than Lebron, Kyrie and Love's title in 2016. You did not even consider that fact that Kobe & Shaq's Lakers were consider to be the obviously better team in two of their three championship runs, whereas 2016 Cavs were on the opposite side. In the history of NBA, the team that was considered better usually wins the title (if not all). So the titles which were won by the worse teams will always be more valuable than those won by better teams. Period.

How tf does LeBron have the easiest championship runs? In the finals, 2020: fair enough. 2012, they faced KD, Westbrook, Ibaka and a bunch of solid role/bench players. 2013, they faced the Spurs dynasty that's considered one of the greatest teams ever. 2016, they came back 3-1 (never been done) against 73-9 Warriors (greatest finals in history). That doesn't make any sense. Kobe's first 3 chips don't demand that high of a difficulty level. His last 2 on the other hand were very impressive, especially with the team he had. MJ's first 4 chips weren't as difficult as shown in the graph. His last two against the Jazz are definitely up there. Overall, this graph makes zero sense.
Arexis Ghastly
Arexis Ghastly Pred 14 dnevi
@Estarlin Castro KD was still a beast. 30.6 PPG on 55% FG. Westbrook 27PPG on 44% from the field. Ibaka was an elite defender too. That Thunder team weren't no cakewalk.

what I was thinking what was the srs of the loosing teams in the finals cause for example the 2018 warriors against the Cavs where the Cavs prolly didn't have a very high srs same goes for teams like the Mavericks when they beat heat in the finals. but the one thing that's wrong with this stat is this only factors in regular szn so say I'm the 1 seed and I clinch and rest my star player for the last 2 weeks and we get blown out that srs will drop significantly from those 2 weals and this also doesnt factor in injuries either cause say 2019 raptors without facing kd or klay their srs isn't nearly as high as it was before. and this also doesnt factor in regular szn injuries either cause without injuries blazers would have most likely been a 3-4 seed and their srs would have been wayyy higher. overall this is a good graph and shows how good each teams was each year but their is also a lot of cons to this graph as well.
leonard Pred 15 dnevi
the 2004 PIstons should have been in the TOP 10 at least
Denien82 Pred 17 dnevi
This makes no sense for so many reasons. SRS seem to imply that regular and playoff strenght are the same (ask D'Antoni about that XD ). So, for example, if you consider Heat's SRS I'm guessing is pretty low, but if you consider just the playoffs (before meeting LA) that would be astronomical. Also, it is true that this Lakers faced a weaker opposition than past teams, but it's not their fault Clips, Celtics and Bucks crushed and burned.

Bro this metric aside just consider the injuries from the first round all the ways to the finals this 2020 championship wasnt just easy it was a cake walk and it apparent because see the type of players they looking to trade for because the real competitors KD, kyrie, Steph, Klay etc are back next season the cake walk is over media fanboys and Lebron's fan base have them as the favorite but they know it's a toss up all the BS they talk about Steph and KD they know how lethal these guys are at shooting the ball

This doesn't mean anything. This doesn't account for the virus, the loss of Kobe, being placed in a bubble and having to go through teams that were all supposed to beat the Lakers. There was the bubble Blazers, the small ball Rockets, and the 3-1 Nuggets. This doesn't actually determine how easy/hard the championship was.

It's not only the finals, it's the full playoffs, and the series doesn't matter, if you sweep or won in 7 its just not change the SRS, and by the eye test, team record and SRS, so the 1995 was the hardest and greatest title ever.
Cris Marte
Cris Marte Pred 24 dnevi
"Rarely that the best 2 teams ever met in the finals" This statement helps Kobe's case in the goat debate tremendously imo. Coz 2 out the 3 championship run he had with Shaq, Kobe was arguably the MVP against the best overall team they faced in the playoffs. Based on their SRS all the teams they faced in the Western Conference Finals were far better than who they faced in the NBA finals. No one in their right mind would argue that the Pacers, Sixers and Nets were a better team than the TrailBlazers, Spurs and Kings in those particular years. Plus Shaq having the much more favorable match ups against guys like a 33 yr old Rick Smits, 34 yr old Mutombo and a role player in Jason Collins favored him to put up bigger numbers which secured him as the 3x FMVP during those runs, while Kobe were matched up against Miller, Iverson and Kidd. The average fans wont even look at these details, and jump in that "Shaq carried Kobe" bandwagon. This disrespect need to stop!

So the team record of your opponent is an indicator? What if 12/15 teams in the conference are bad....won’t the top 3 teams have a great records? In which case, their record is no indicator of their talent. Ie Reggie Miller and Patrick Ewing are somehow superior to Kareem, Magic, Worthy, Dumars, Thomas, Malone, Dr. J.....yeah, gotcha. Anybody who thinks the 84 road the Celtics took is easier than the any year the bulls won is a fucking moron

LeBron made the East finals on a weak East 3 seconds later.... Lakers had the easiest pass on the West. Is there something to be said about how dominant this guy was instead of saying how easy this guy had it? Whats the difference? Is like arguing that LeBron is not a good player because he shut the other team down by the 3rd quarter so he never faced a challenge.... is a huge double speak.
JZA Pred 25 dnevi
I can see how that graph will give it to the laker, but that said, there is a different graph that says that many top heavy teams got beaten earlier. Like Bucks and Clippers. IF the heat would have beat the lakers in 7 I think they will be close to the 95 Rockets. Same thing with the Raptors last year which had to beat Bucks and Sixers in close series.
