In recent days Kyle Kuzma said that the Showtime Lakers would easily dominate today's NBA. But what if we were able to compare those lakers with the 2000s Lakers led by Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal, or maybe today's lakers led by Lebron James and Anthony Davis?

Let's look at each team. By names, the Showtime Lakers should be the ones that win this hypothetical match. I mean we're talking about Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and James Worthy, 3 of the greatest Lakers of all time. On the other hand, we have the dynamic duo between the "big fella" Shaquille O'Neal and the "Black Mamba" Kobe Bryant. This dynamic duo won 3 NBA Championships

Then we have today's lakers. There's not too much to say about them. In this hypothetical game, today's lakers would be just Lebron James against the world (just like the last season). Anthony Davis would probably get injured and Russell Westbrook, well he would continue being Russell Westbrook.

To sum up, today's lakers wouldn't have a chance to beat the Showtime Lakers or the 2000s Lakers. Even if Anthony Davis were in his prime, they would still lose. They would still lose not because they are bad players (LeBron is top 3 in NBA history), they would lose because the way that the other two teams used to play was legendary. Lakers showtime won 5 championships while the 2000s lakers won 3.

Are today’s Lakers the worst team we have ever seen?

Today’s lakers may not be the worst Lakers we’ve ever seen but they are the most disappointing team ever. If we look at the roster we can see important names like Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard, and of course LeBron James. 5 NBA All-stars. However, they find a way to be left out of the play-in.
