As the world praises the 2015 NBA Champions and some overrate them by calling them one of the best teams ever, Kobe Bryant posted a reminder about how good his 2001 Lakers were. The image he “came across” and posted shows him and Shaq celebrating their 2nd of 3 championships in a row after going 15-1 during the postseason. The 1 single loss came during Game 1 of the Finals which is mostly known for Iverson stepping over Tyronn Lue.
My favorite memory of that Laker team winning the championship is Mark Madsen and the parade.
