Are the 2015-2016 Warriors better than the Showtime Lakers? | The Tylt
Klay Thompson jokingly said the Warriors are better than the Showtime Lakers after Sunday's game, but that raises an interesting question. Are they?
Looking past the fact that the Warriors have demolished the Cavs in the past two games, the Warriors are possibly the best basketball team in history (at least in the regular season).
But would their small-ball lineup stack up against the giants of basketball? With Kareem Abdul-Jabar towering at 7’2” and Magic Johnson not too far away at 6’9”, the Showtime Lakers dominated the inside-outside game. Could Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala stand up to such sheer physicality?
At the same time the Warriors powered through the Thunder’s size with a huge comeback after being down 3-1 in the conference finals. Their lineup has proven versatile enough to be trouble for just about everything that’s been thrown at them.
We’ll never be able to see the Showtime Lakers play today’s Warriors, but we sure as hell can speculate.
So, who’s the better team? Is it the #ShowtimeLakers or #2016Warriors
