Has an NBA team ever won every game in the playoffs for that season
No. The closest team to perfection was the 2001 Los Angeles Lakers who went 15-1 on their way to the title.

- Was there ever a team in the NBA Playoffs who didn't lose a post-season game until they got to the Finals.
- Q: I'm just curious, because it seems like this years' Detroit Pistons will win every single game and sweep every series UNTIL they play a Western Conference team in the Finals.So, my questoion is whether or not anyone has accomplished this feat before. Also, what is the best POST-SEASON RECORD ever recorded in the NBA Playoffs?
- A: The most recent was the Lakers in 2001. The swept the Blazers in round 1 3-0, Kings in the semifinals 4-0, Spurs in the Western Conference Finals 4-0. Then when they played the 76ers in the Finals they lost game one but won the next 4.Go Suns!!!!
- How did Dirk win the MVP in an almost career worst year as Nash had a career best year?
- Q: Dirk had one of his worst if not his worst all around year as a NBA starter in 8 years as a NBA starter, but won the MVP.Meanwhile Steve Nash had an across the board career best year in almost every category that counts and was the two time defending MVP award winner. What defines a MVP.Dirk - never as Dirk scored his fewest 3 point baskets in his 8 years as a NBA starter in the 2006-2007 season making only 72 three pointers the whole season as everyone ranked in the top 20 as far as field goal percentage in the 2006-2007 NBA season made significantly more than 72 three pointers for the entire season which was Dirk's record personal NBA low as a starter. While Dirk only made about 72 three pointers while having the 13th best three point FG percentage this last regular season, all other top 20 three point shooters as far a three point FG percentage scored 100 or more three point baskets.Dirk had almost a career worst year as a NBA starter in 2006-2007 having: -a career worst year as a NBA starter in three point shots made in his 8 year NBA career as a NBA starter (the current year's 13th from the best three point shot FG percentage)-a career worst year in fewest steals as a starter-a career worst year in fewest blocked shots as a starter-Dirk's second most turnovers out of 8 years as a starter-Dirk's 6th best year out of 8 years (meaning third from his worst year) in rebounding-Dirk's 7th best year out of 8 years (meaning his second from his worst year in defensive rebounds)-Dirk's lowest scoring average per game in the last three years-and Dirk's second lowest scoring average per game in the last five years.I mean what was there about Dirk's personal 2006-2007 season to get excited about on the team which probably had the second deepest team as far as talent in 2006-2007 which was the best that Mark Cuban's money could buy; or, in other words, Dallas' 67 wins came from a team effort from 11 guys who played regularly game in and game out for Dallas. Maybe I didn't see it, but maybe Dirk came within a mile of making the first or second team All NBA Defensive Team. No offense intended Dirk, but your personal stats were really bad in 2006-2007, and when a player sets personal lows in steals per game and blocks per game, then that usually means that they have lost a couple of steps, and, in my statistical analysis of NBA players means that that particular player is on his way down and has already seen his better days. Probably why Dirk couldn't get Dallas out of Round One against Nellie.I think that it is media types who vote on MVPs just like the media types who voted Marcus Camby the defensive player of the year in 2006-2007 when NBA head coaches didn't even vote Marcus Camby either the best or second best defender in the NBA in 2006-2007.The same media types who say LeBron is better than Michael voted Dirk MVP which shows you what the sports media types know about bball.This compares to Steve Nash's 2006-2007 year (the two time defending MVP from 2006 and 2005) in his 11 year NBA career to date:-career best year in FG % (over 3 points higher than Dirk)-career best year in three point FG % (over 4 points higher than Dirk)-career best year in three point FGs made (somewhere around 170 three pointers made compared to Dirk's 72 made)-shot 89.9% from the FT line-second best year in 11 years in rebounds per game-best year ever in assists per game-best year ever in total assists-committed fewest fouls ever in career-best year ever in points per game-best year ever in total pointsNow, I am no Phoenix fan or Steve Nash fan, but the South African native Steve Nash sure had a career year in 2006-2007 as compared to German native Dirk who had a very below average personal year compared to Dirk's prior 8 years as a NBA starter.I mean how could two time defending MVP Steve Nash have a career year across the board leading his team to 61 victories not be voted MVP when Dirk had one of his worst years ever as a NBA starter. I guess Dirk's almost career worst NBA year as a starter showed up in Round One of the NBA playoffs. But, then "global" NBA Commissioner David Stern probably wanted the German basketball fans as NBA Commissioner Stern has gotten the South African and Canadian fans in the last two MVP award prior to this year.

- Is Kobe Bryant an NBA legend?
- Q: Is Kobe Bryant an NBA legend? How would you summarize Kobe Bryant's legacy? In terms of accomplishments, in plain back and white, what would be his greatest achievements?Here are some examples of NBA legends; Kareem Abdul Jabbar is all-time leader scorer with over 38,000 points. He lead the Milwaukee Bucks to an NBA title in 1971. He has 6 regular season MVP's and 2 Finals MVP's.Magic Johnson lead the LA Lakers to 9 Western Conference championships and 5 NBA titles. He has 3 MVP's and Finals MVP's, and is the only rookie to ever win the award. 42, 15, and 7 was his statlline in the deciding game. Larry Bird lead the Boston Celtics to 3 NBA titles, and 5 Eastern Conference championships. He is only 2nd player in NBA history (Wilt Chamberlain the other) to win 3 consecutive MVP's. He also 2 Final's MVP's. Bill Russell lead the Boston Celtics to the greatest dynasty in sports history. He was the leader of 11 NBA championship teams in his 13 years NBA career, one as player-coach. He has 5 MVP's.Michael Jordan lead the Chicago Bulls to 6 NBA championships. He also lead them to the winningest regular season record ever with 72 wins. He holds the record for most points in a playoff game with 63, has the most scoring titles with 10, and is the only player to win defensive player of the year and a scoring title in the same season. He is the all-time scoring per game leader with 30.12. He has 5 MVP's and 6 Finals MVP's. Wilt Chamberlain's owns almost every sugnificant scorer and rebounding record such the record for most rebounds in a game with 55, points 100, and minutes played for a season 48.5, and rebounds per game for a season 27.2. He is also the all-time rebounding leader per game with 22.5. Wilt Chamberlain led the 1967 Philadelphia Warriors to the NBA title. Wilt, along with Larry Bird is the only player to win 3 consecutive MVP's, he has 4 total. Wilt Chamberlain played 14 seasonsLarry Bird and Magic Johnson played 12Michael Jordan played 15Kareem Abdul Jabbar played 20, but accomplished the bulk of his body of work in his first 12Bill Russell played 13 seasons Kobe Bryant is going to begin his 13th NBA season. What records or accomplishments does he own that puts him in the company of these players? I would like black and white, concrete, factual answers, nothing objective, no predicitions; how would you summarize Kobe Bryant's career and legacy?"Alpha Wolf"...I mean, "Over-rated" , Kobe has 3 rings as a key member on those teams, but Shaq LEAD those teams to championships and has 3 Finals MVP's to show for. Kobe has been subpar in the championship rounds.Also, I asked for major accomplishments that could be stacked against these legends. Slam Dunk championships and leading the Lakers to a humilating finals loss doesn't count. 1 MVP, 2 scoring titles, and the 81 point game are his major accomplishments, those are his comparable accomplishments to the players mentioned above. He doesn't measure up. I'm glad you mention Charles Barkley, that is a player that Kobe can be compared to. Not players like Bird, Jordan, Russell, Magic, Chamberlain, or Kareem.So it seems you fail, again, as usual.
- A: Well...I can't, so I guess...here's the thing...He is very popular, extremely popular if you include his haters and his followers. He's definitely the NBA's main attraction, for better or worse. He still has time to build his resume, but as of right now, he hasn't dominated individually or LEAD his teams to the success that these players have. Sure he has 3 championships, but he was a co-star, not the main option, not to mention he's performed horribly in the Finals. To his credit he has 1 MVP, 2 scoring titles, and the highest individual scoring regular season game in the modern era, with 81 points. Which is not a record by the way, but it's still his best acheivement, and impressive none the less. He just doesn't stack up to the all-time greats.So is he an NBA legend? I'd have to say no, but he is very well on his way with the shape the Lakers are in now. I'd say he is more of a pop culture icon as of right now.
