Every player is healthy for the whole series, and plays like theyre in their careers prime. 2002-03 rules, Teams get a week of prep. **Notable Blazers**: Prime Arvydas Sabonis, Pippen, Shawn Kemp, Sheed, Rod Strickland, Steve Smith, Detlef Shrempf, Damon Stoudamire **Notable Spurs**: Prime Duncan, David Robinson, Manu, Parker, Bruce Bowen, Steve Smith, Kevin Willis [previous matchup](https://www.reddit.com/r/nba/comments/mg3x1q/who_wins_in_a_series_between_the_202021_nets_and/) (both of these teams were featured in one-sided hypotheticals before so hopefully this is closer to even)
Its not as clear-cut Spurs as people seem to think. Edit: Like, peak Sabonis was before the NBA and he was a defensive force. Pippen is obviously a defensive all time great. Sheed great defender. And peak Shawn Kemp was a freak. Thats a terrifying team t
Bro, prime Duncan, Robinson, Manu, Parker? David Robinson in his prime was an absolute force, hes probably a top 15 all time player, plus Duncan is a top 10 all time player.
That Blazer team had Dale Davis too, who also wasnt too shabby in his prime either.
Spurs by approximately a whole bunch.
Spurs sweep not close
Spurs win with a +80 point differential for the series. We talking about a Spurs team that won the chip with a washed Admiral and a baby TP/Manu.
Definitely not that big of a point differential. Were talking prime everybody, right? So prime Arvydas Sabonis who gave ol Admiral fits in the Olympics with prime Dale Davis coming off the bench at the 5 to give him a rest. Sonics freak of nature version
Doesn’t matter, because the Kobe-Shaq Lakers still beat both in 5.
If were going prime version of everybody GOAT team that Lakers squad that lost to the Pistons that had Payton and Malone wouldve blown both of us out of water.
