What Laker team? They were done.
Sonic team that got beat by Nuggets?
Utah was nasty, so thats fair, but its not a given.
What Laker team? The one that had Magic fu*kin Johnson and James Worthy. that one.
Obviously the mid 90s were weak. The best Jazz teams weren't the ones that made the finals. Malone and Stockton were out of their primes when they made the finals, they just didn't fall off as much as other teams did, so they became beasts in the west.
Malone was the fu*kin NBA MVP in '97 you numbnuts.
