    Shouldn’t you also factor in the teams own SRS to get the differential? It’s different if you are playing low-SRS teams as a low-SRS team.

    No other player in the history of the game has been in position to win a Championship than LeBron James and he couldnt get it done. He should have many more because his ass hopped from team to team of talent. His ass still lost.

    LBJ's championship won doesn't need stats, just search the internet on whom his teammates when he won them, you can also look on how dominant the team where he won those championship and lastly how weak the conferences of those championship rings. LBJ New Record: Most Nba championship of different teams.

  • kristian de jesus
    kristian de jesus

    LBJ rings are always got from easy wins, first he leave Cavs and join heat with bosh and wade, then when he lost the finals and saw that Cavs become stronger he leave heat and rejoin cavs with kevin love and irving, then cavs became weaker and davis join lakers he LEAVE HIS HOMETOWN for the second time BECAUSE HE IS HUNGRY FOR CHAMPIONSHIP, he want to beat MJ and KOBE. Alas he can't do a threepeat or won 5 or 6. I bet he will join another team next year if lakers lost this time. He is old, a true greatness brought by how you carry your team and not the other way around. Kareem is still the Goat, NBA player of modern Era are soft muscle brain, flop Gods.

    Faulty logic 1: SRS doesn’t say anything about individual player skills. Faulty logic 2: the best players in NBA history are currently in the NBA because training camp is horrifically more competitive today than it was 20 years ago. It’s funny to see the garbage that got into the NBA 20, 30, 40 years ago. It’s absolutely unthinkable to let bill lambier or Oliver Miller onto an NBA team today. Imagine fat Shawn kemp showing up to training camp today.

  • Andrey Ansley
    Andrey Ansley

    I think the stat is flawed for the simple fact that if a worse team beats a better team before the eventual champions get to them, then that worse team doesn't get a boost in SRS for taking down a better team. If the Lakers had faced the clippers and bucks, this championship would be elevated to the top 10 most difficult according to this metric. But because those teams were taken down early, it dips their score significantly. I don't really think it's a fair way to judge, unless there was a way of adjusting the score after a worse team takes down a better team... So teams like the 2020 Lakers or the 07 Spurs don't have an unfairly judged ring.

  • Jamaal Bethea

    THIS VIDEO IS SHEAR EXCELLENCE AND ALTHOUGH NO STATS OR METRICS ARE PERFECT, IT'S SUPER ACCURATE. THE ONE THING I WOULD WANT THE STAT TO INCLUDE IS HOW LIKELY A TEAM WOULD BE TO MAKE IT WHERE THEY MADE IT WITHOUT THEIR LEADING STAR. THE REASON I SAY THAT IS BECAUSE IT ADDS A CERTAIN LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY TO IT BEING AS THOUGH MAYBE THE STAR HAS TO PULL HIS WEIGHT TO A CERTAIN DEGREE THAT'S UNFAIR AND THAT WOULD CHANGE THE METRIC A LITTLE

    LOL are you saying the championship won by the Lakers and the Celtics in the 80's were easy, considering they played each other. Sorry that is stupid and so are you. They early rounds are easy for every top seed more or less. Hell I would say having to play each other made it the most difficult championships period.

    So MJ isn't the Goat because he didn't really have too much difficulty where Kobe is now the GOAT because he had a lot tougher play off opponents

    • Random Dude
      Random Dude

      Performances matter. MJ was Fmvp in every one of them while Kobe isn't. Kobe was having terrible performances in finals he averaged like 15 ppg but MJ didn't. He averages 33.6 ppg for finals while Kobe is 25 ppg. So you really can't compare them considering MJ never had a teammate average even 20 ppg in the finals and Shaq dominated both sides of the court with 36+ ppg in those finals

    • Nyrat
      Nyrat

      @AJ Lucky007 true Kobe had Shaq and MJ did not but MJ did have Pippin. Like the guy said Kobe 3peat was harder than MJ MJ might have 2 more rings but Kobe had a lot harder games

      Cavs don't have the stat but definitely it was tough but it wasn't even supposed to go 7 games. Cavs were the better team practically with Kyrie lebron and love . Gsw were so hyped with the new record and the path to the playoffs was nothing for them. I still believe that Cavs wouldn't have the championship if Klay wasn't the only one to be healthy

  • Kankles the Sloth

    Kobe and Shaq were one of the best, if not the best, example of two complementary players, great players certainly, coming together to do something more than they could alone. LeBron in to an extent Michael could lead a team to a championship by themselves, but Kobe and Shaq couldn’t do that.

    SRS is nice and all but you really would have to look at all of those championships on a case by case basis to reasonably compare them and you never could have any firm understanding of it even approaching a primary statistic to measure the difficulty. Players get injured. Not all players have the same workload in the playoffs. Anyone who is aware that MJ was putting up Rick Barry record defeating points per game in the Finals against an extremely competitive team, in the hardest era to score... as an OLDER player who had to carry a virtually unprecedented proportion of the offensive workload, and even coming up with lots of turnovers and being a monster perimeter defender? Yeah... you're gonna start to feel a little skeptical about those "more difficult rings" up above it.

    2001 Author says : “Lakers faced a better team leading up to the finals...” and how many games did all 3 of those teams win? The answer is ZERO. Where as the “worst” of those 4 teams by your claim, the Sixers with Ai MVP won game 1 in a classic game to be remembered by everyone that watched basketball before 207 3’s per game were taken.

    That Stat does not come into play because off for so long and then starting again. Plus add in depth perception, go from huge stadiums to basically a real big gym. being away from your family and loved ones, and no trash talking fans. Now if there was jo stoppage I would take the Stat and maybe the clippers win and go on to face the lakers in the conference finals. Let that sink in for a minute. Just think 🤔

  • Alex

    I think expansion of the league could be a factor in how teams in the 90s and early 2000s get higher scores. Expansion teams are really bad, most averaging around 30% their first 4 seasons (25ish wins for the expansion teams, but around 55 for everyone else). The Grizzlies were 2-12 against the teams the Lakers faced in 2001, while the Raptors were 4-6 ( they were 3-1 against the 76ers, 1-5 against the west). How good the record of the champion is also plays a factor. The 95 Rockets only won 47 games, while the 01 Lakers won 56 (the fewest in their three peat) and while the 97 Bulls won 69 games, they faced two 60+ win teams in the post season. Having worse records means more wins for your opponents, meaning a higher score.

  • Mil Dol
    Mil Dol

    In my opinion interesting data, but don’t know if your extrapolation is totally correct. The statement that this is why you can’t count rings, and 2001 Laker team was the most dominant appears speculative. Seems you’re saying players and teams that have a harder path to a championship should get more credit. Could you argue the teams with the easiest path to the Championships were more dominant because the 2020 Lakers were very dominant. A low SRS rating might mean there was greater parity not that a team was all that awful. To have a high SRS might mean there were some upsets in the playoffs. Didn’t the 1996 Chicago Bulls win 72 games in a season ? I would pick that stat for most dominant team and they’re ranked 14th. Also, Cavaliers 2016 was a very tough final.

    Wow, I look at th data very differently. A league where margin of victory is closer, thus leading to a SRS that is lower, would be much more competitive because the teams are close in ability. This would make winning s title more difficult. Where the teams are less equal is when have these massive margins of victory. This means mediocre teams can put up large SRS against the bottom dregs. Then, when you have team that is much better, Kobe/Shaq Lakers, they roll through with these ridiculous numbers. That is not the "most competitive" form the NBA can take as our narrator states. This is a pitfall of using one metric to determine any broad claim.

    Im not the best with math or graphs and the way each variable alters or retards the aggregate, but a concern struck me when i heard how you were coming to you conclusion's. In theory A teams ability should not directly alter the difficulty score of there schedule. Put another way, how good team A is and how easily they beat teams B-Z, shouldn't have any effect on the score of the teams. Each team judged from each season would therefore be able to be conceivably switched with every other team and season. This, I believe would be a more accurate gauge. I can explain why if you wish.

  • iamdalibor

    These statistics are so flawed. Your going to tell me that the 2017 warriors that went 16-1 in the playoffs... was a much harder ring to win then the lakers 2020? For real? 16-1 people. Let that sink in. That's the best record set by any team in the playoffs in nba history. Add to the fact that injuries are probably not put into the summation of these stats either. I dare someone to say otherwise. That warriors 17 ring was easiest of all time. Not to mention the bulls. The 90's bulls were barely taken to game 7... only twice ever in all of playoffs if my memory serves me right. Only TWICE. Sounds like a cupcake pathway to a ring if you ask me. It's just not how good a team was it's also how many games did they lose to the competition. It's everything. These stats are inconclusive.

    • iamdalibor
      iamdalibor

      @Phoenix PlayZ Yeah that's another aspect that's missing. I doubt that it is. Not to mention regular season and playoffs are two completely different competitions all together as some teams play better in playoffs then the regular season. There's no way to judge that. I look at it as if the games went to game 7 to judge the competition, then injuries then other things. If you aren't taken to a game 7 then to me that was pretty easy to win. Going 4-0 or 4-1 is definitely a cake walk. 4-2 is still a bit harder but still easier then a 7 game series. 7 game series definitely can change things. As can how did it get to a game 7. Look at the cavs/warriors 16, cavs were down 3-1 then came back to win it. That's very hard to do in my opinion (only team to do it as well) but going by the SRS statistical score it's easy. And I was wrong the magic did beat the bulls. But it was only for that one year and that was it.

      This stat is flawed af a 7 game series shows which team is better you cant fluke your way out of a playoff round or a Finals Appearance Miami essentially swept the 1 seeded bucks which had an SRS score of 10 which is no fluke since its a 7 game series so why would there SRS score be lower after beating them shouldn't they have adjusted the SRS score to match the bucks after beating them?

  • AitLin Of The Rebellion
    AitLin Of The Rebellion

    So basically Jordan and Kobe had a lot harder way to the finals, but LeBron had a lot harder matchups in the finals itself. Appreciate Jordan's 6 and Kobe's all finals appearances (not just wins) and LeBron's only-finals records (without play-offs). Even tho both LeBron and Jordan had some issues on the way to the champs. For example LeBron's series against Boston and Warriors (not matter if he won or not) and Jordan's series against Pistons (also the same thing) The only thing is that system, as I understand, didn't include play-offs themselves. I mean, the way and quality of opponents' playing throughout the play-offs. Lakers with Shaq and Kobe wouldn't go 16-1 if every team played as good as their SRS showed they should play like (didn't really see that run, so maybe their opponents really played great, but how did Lakers go 16-1 then? Is it really so mind-blowing, or is it really just stats not showing the entire picture?). The same with Milwaukee got outplayed by Miami in 2020 play-offs. Milwaukee even with MVP Giannis, still not the best team to play against in play-offs. Also it doesn't count injures or some factors like that (as I understand). 2018 Warriors could've lost in WCF and not even be in that list, if CP3 never got injured that year. But they are, and their SRS is not as bad as we through, just because they beat Rockets that one time. And also nobody calls LeBron's 2013 championship weak, just because he won against SAS in the finals, but statistics shows that it was actually pretty easy. Which is, I can't say, looks like a truth. But we have what we have Edit: Oops, looks like Jimmy already said that all in the second part of the video, my bad. Don't have anything else to say. Just agree with Jimmy's last words in the video
