Cohen's Analysis: Shaq & Kobe’s Lakers or Magic & Kareem’s Lakers? Again, it may depend on which years we are assessing, but let’s compare 1984-85 vs. 2000-01.
James Worthy may be the wild card here, considering he is a third superstar tagging with Johnson & Jabbar. Remember, Worthy was sensational in the 1985 Finals, scoring 28 points in the series finale.
But would Kareem be able to bully O’Neal off the block or force him to live on the free throw line? Probably. The elders have the slight advantage and probably win in six games.
