It's a very light ring due to no home/away games and them winning the lottery with getting to face trash teams but IT IS NOT AN ASTERISK. I can't stand it when people say that lol Doesn't matter anyway because the Cavs win over GSW was one of the heaviest.

Bad math. SRS automatically increases with expansion. That math is automatic. Top teams now have watered down teams to beat. Also the East during the eighties were brutal. The more balanced the division the lower the SRS. You can see that math, right? The Lakers walked to the finals, all but one year, in an incredibly soft West but then faced an actual tough opponent. In the 90's Jordan drove everybody out of the East, even Shaq, and then faced a tougher Western opponent. That led to the Lakers having tougher opponents in the West than in the finals. That plus the expansion of the league throughout the previous decade watering the league down. The only truths about that chart is the Rockets had a tough title and Lebron had easy titles. Sociology often has bad math as it has too many variables and the league changed to much from one era to another.

The 2000 and 2001 Lakers had the hardest championship runs I've ever seen. one of those teams which only won 56 games in regular season because they were coasting, had to go through 3 50 win teams to get their championship. I think the Lakers may actually have had to go through every round of that playoffs facing a 50 plus win team.

How about calculating the SRS from the games only inside the bubble? Because comparing the incomplete 2020 seasons versus Full season doesn't give a complete picture. With almost everyone out of shape, due to the gap in playing, I think the SRS would be lesser than 7.46

SRS is flawed. Theoretically you could have a 4-game sweep and have an SRS of 2.0 and you could win a 7-game series with an SRS of 10.0. Any sane human being would pick the sweep as the more dominant win. The Lakers 16-1 playoff record proves how flawed it is.

I understand it’s one of the easiest paths to the finals based on opponents but I don’t think you can fault them because the other good playoff teams like the the clippers and the bucks lost to those weaker opponents while the lakers sustained all the way.

"The Mickey Mouse Rec League Championship" XD I remember Shaq talks big about championships w/ asterisks, cuz the 2002 NBA Championship should have it, everyone knows the WCF was rigged in favour of the Lakers (vs the Kings), and that's a much easier title (vs Nets) to win than the 2020 championship.

The completely negates the fact that the nba was expanded, teams that were trying to get a title locked like the bulls/pistons/ lakers/ Celtics had there stars locked down on contract. The league was being watered down and this lead to a number disproportionate number of good teams with good records. Plus now with the basketball being a world sport there are so many more talent to choose from and all teams will be closer and the bench will be closer to the starters. Year to year context is forgotten

Lmao. The most important thing this statistic ignores is how good the championship teams are. For example, 2018 Cavs made it to the finals with 0.59 srs, so every team it defeated has surpassed itself. However, let's look at the 2018 GSW, they have more srs scores than any of the teams they beat, which means that even if the teams they beat were better than the Cavs defeated in 2018, the road to the final was easier for them. So this statistic doesn't mean much because it just focuses on the strength of the opponents and ignores how well the winning team is.

Stat Nerd? Buckle up... Lakers 2020 playoff run. So, First Round with Portland is inevitable = - 0.61 Houston was indeed better than OKC giving = +3.13 Only Conf Finals and League Finals were messed up. Scenario 1: Best SRS route From West : Clippers actually beat Nuggets and face Lakers in Final = +6.66 From East : Bucks beat Heat and Celtics then meet Lakers in Finals= +9.41 Best from west=9.18 Total=9.18+9.41=[18.59] Scenario 2: Raptors beat Celtic in conf Semi. Raptors beat Heat in conf Finals. Clippers face Lakers in conf Finals=6.66 Raptors face Lakers in Finals=5.97 Total=9.18+5.97= [15.15] Scenario 3: If Clippers made it to Conf. If Celtics made it to league Finals. Total=9.18+5.83= [15.01] Scenario X: If Clippers made it to Conf. If Heat made it to league Finals Total=9.18+2.59=[11.77] Scenario 4: If Nuggets in conf Final Bucks in League Finals Total=4.87+9.41=[14.28] Scenario 5: If Nuggets in conf Final Raptors in League Finals Total=4.87+5.97=[10.84] Scenario 6: Nuggets in Conf Finals. Celtics beat Heat in conf Finals Celtics in league finals=5.83 Total=4.87+5.83=[10.7] My Analysis and Views : Comparing Scenarios with 37 others: Scenario 1 [18.59] ranks 6th All time Scenario 2 [15.15] ranks 19th Scenario 3 [15.01] ranks 19th Scenario 4 [14.28] ranks 19th Scenario X [11.77] ranks 26th Scenario 5 [10.84] ranks 28th Scenario 6 [10.7] ranks 28th Actual [7.46] ranks 35th Scenario 1 This Shows it had to be Bucks and Clippers to be the ultimate and penultimate matches and it would have been one of the toughest and best. Scenario 2-4 It shows that it has to be both Clippers and Bucks without Heat being in Final , either of them without heat into Finals would result in 19th best all time which is still great. Scenario X Having the best west but facing heat in Finals. Shows the SRS damage caused by heat with clippers showing up at conf Finals. Scenario 5-6 If Raptors or Celtics would've stepped up, it would not have been last 3rd(35th) rather atleast(28th) but still not quite great. Good enough. Now, I'd like to blame Clippers Bucks & Heat Nuggets. Even Celtics would've boosted Lakers SRS. But Miami Heat only contributed (2.59) while they beat Bucks (9.41) in conf semi and Celtics (5.83) conf finals Also in the west Lakers had Rockets (3.13) in Conf semi then meet Nuggets (2.35) at Conf finals instead of Clippers (6.66) (Nuggets 4-3 Clippers in conf semi). Funny part is Clippers+Celtics > Nuggets Bucks. So Nuggets did the damage too. (Scenario 3 vs4) This makes me ask a question the teams which beat Bucks Celtics, Clippers(by nuggets) are weak? Heat was 4-1 against Bucks and 4-2 against Celtics. I checked 2000-01 Season. LAL 2nd in West 3.74 Spurs 1st in West 7.92 OK Kings 3rd in West 6.07 Wow PTB 7th in West 4.52 Insane There must be disparity between the top teams and bottom teams for higher SRSs. Does averaging a better margin makes a team better?

This SRS stat is kinda bogus. It doesnt matter how good a team is statistically, it matters how good they are when they step on the court. Also, i'd argue that the 2020 championship was one of the HARDEST of all time. They had to play through a PANDEMIC, people. They couldnt see their families, or go about normal daily lives for about/over 100 days, thats not easy. And people seem to act like the games were played in Staples Centre or something, acting like this was easier for the Lakers than everyone else. I dont even like the Lakers, but i can respect what they did was fucking difficult. And lastly, i think you need to look at more than simply 2 stats when trying to determine how good a team is

I want to give an example that shows the problem with this stat. The 2012 heat ranked higher than the 2013 heat however we can agree that the heat winning the title in 2013 is considered as a more significant milestone because they had to beat the Spurs in one of the most difficult ways.

stupid metric. didnt measure the fact the players had a 5 mo lay-off before the start of playoffs. any player that plays basketball knows hw difficult it is to get back in game shape after even a short layoff. didnt measure the mental struggles players had to go thru due to social injustice n the impact of covid. players were unable to really go anywhere other than there game facility n hotel room. no fans, no actual socialising. the circumstances the players had to go thru on and off the court doesnt even come close to any other nba season in the history of the game

The 90s to the 2000s would be the opposite of competitive. The fact all the teams they player had high SRS ratings means their was a big gulf in quality between the stronger and weaker teams. This measurement overall has loads of inconsistencies. The Bucks have proven to not be a great team in the playoffs, as shown by the Heat beating them pretty easily. Yet the Bucks had over double the SRS of the Heat, this alone shows the issues of the measurement.

Your study is flawed. The SRS of the lakers 2020 title uses stats from before the bubble. Therefore it would be impossible to know exactly the SRS of each team in the bubble. You basically assume the bubble didn’t affect the game.

Yes but the difficulty of opponent is also based off where you seed in the conference for that season. Some may argue it’s harder to finish top than to win the play off based upon how many games you have to win and consistently be good for. - just my opinion don’t shout at me if I’m wrong -
