    That is the influence of Jordan (and Bryant).

    Isolation basketball was what they specialized at.

    Now you are seeing the influence of Curry, with all the 3-point sh0ts.

    Curry is one of the most influential basketball players of all-time, which is a big reason I place him so high on the all-time list (just outside top 10 all-time).

    KCP really helped them recover from a 13 point deficit.

    These people just don't follow the #LakeShow.

    Just because the Lakers "players who were good in the early 2010s" squad shows up once doesn't mean they're going to do that the whole series.

    The more pressing issue from Miami is as it looks now, LeBron and Davis could win this series without them helping.

    Butler will gut it out.

    It won't change the fact the Lakers have the 2 best players and that usually means you win a NBA series.

    If Butler misses games or has his effectiveness significantly limited, then this series will be over in 4 games.

    The Lakers are asserting themselves as they have done all playoff.

    In terms of Warzone streamer Twitch slang, they are "META".

    Real easy to "assert" yourself in the playoffs when you get two tomato cans for opponents and then a Denver team that was limping into that series after going the distance with both the Jazz and Clips.

    Pierce only exists to defecate horrible takes and Celtics homerism as an analyst.

    I still remember he declared the Celtics/Bucks series over after one game last year. The Celtics proceeded to get dicked in the next 4 games and lost the series.

    A lot of experts on ESPN and Fox Sports were thinking Portland had a good chance of beating the Lakers.

    Anything to avoid giving the Lakers credit. Keep going.

    He also allows rivalries from his playing days influence his ability to give objective analysis.

    It is known that the Celtics teams and LeBron James didn't like each other too much, and had a heated rivalry.

    As a result of this, Pierce basically thinks LeBron James isn't even top 20 all-time.

    There's nothing that any of these teams can do against the Lakers. Simple as that.
