For those who hate hypothetical arguments, this episode of ESPN First Take should really piss you off.
The question is, “Would Kobe’s Lakers beat the 2016 Warriors (a team we have never seen play)?” Max Kellerman doesn’t believe so and Stephen A. Smith thinks Max is absolutely insane and “shouldn’t even be allowed to talk basketball” for believing the Warriors could actually beat a team with the MDE Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant; a team that won 3 straight NBA titles; a team that once went 15-1 in the playoffs; a team that, I repeat, have Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant.
Anyways, just for the Lakers fans, let’s revisit Kobe, Roy Hibbert and the awful 2015 Lakers embarrassing the history-making 2015 Warriors.
