Lakers Back To the NBA Finals!

Postby You Can Call Me Ray » Sat May 30, 2009 5:09 am

I can't describe how great it is for this trip for the Lakers back to the NBA finals! Last year was a disappointment to get there and then lose to not just another team, but the Celtics! But where are those Celtics this year? Well, they aren't in the finals, that's fo shore! :P

Now all I need is for the Cleveland Cavs to step-up and take the Eastern Conference crown away from Orlando, and we will have my most perfect wet dream for an NBA Finals! I grew up in Cleveland, but LA is my team now, and to see them both in the finals would be awesome!

GO LAKERS! Kobe, Lamar, Pau, Andrew, Derek and the whole bench...now it is time to show them your best performances of the year!

Oh well… the Magic should be a breeze for Kobe and Co. no?

My Dad is a Celtics fan (c. Larry Bird) and I didn’t even know they beat our Lakers last year so you know how much I pay attention to the NBA. :)

While I would love for the Lakers to sweep the Magic, I don't think it will be that easy. The big problems the Magic will present for the Lakers are Dwight Howard (but I think he can be managed) and their awesome 3-point shooting game. I believe it will be the Lakers in 6 games.

:) Tell your dad I feel really bad that his team is not in the finals this year! And coming from a Laker fan he will know just how loaded that is with sarcasm! :)

My Lakers are simply awesome! And the old man Derek Fisher still has some clutch 3 pointers in him.

Only one more win (at home, no less) and it is ours... sweetness!

I can just see the riots on Sunday night in East LA now...

I think I'll stay home and watch the festivities on TV. :)

Go Lakers!

Lakers are back in the playoffs. With just a bit over 6 minutes, it looks like the Lakers may sweep the Utah Jazz to get to the Western Conference championship against Phoenix Suns.

But who is strong enough from the East to make it to the Finals? Having grown up in Clevelandm my dream Finals would be LeBron vs. Kobe!

Well- I gotta admit I was secretly rooting for your guy, Kobe, to beat his rape charge in Eagle. And what do ya know? A couple of million bucks later he surely did.

And the home court advantage swings back to the Lakers as they sadden those poor Celtics fans by beating their team on their home court. And Derek Fisher... still such a class act, and still able to pick up the slack when Kobe's not dealing the hot hand.

One more win in Boston would be nice! :lol:

I'll never forgive the Lakers for their continual and cruel abuse of the Nuggets year after year after year. But I gotta admit they're pretty good.

Alert the press!! Something we agree on! But some people are surprised when I tell them I have not liked Kobe as a person for a long time (however, as he ages he is becoming a better person). But as much as I do not like him as a person, the guy is clearly one of the best in the NBA and has been for a long time. So I am just happy he is a Laker! Pau Gasol and Derek Fisher, OTOH, are both VERY classy and team-oriented guys, in addition to being great players.

So what about the World Cup then? Does Team USA have a better chance of even getting past the first round than Hull City does of winning the FA cup next year? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
