If you thought that the Lakers just didn’t have enough this year to compete, you weren’t the only one. Then something happened: they traded for pg in Ramon Sessions, got PF Jordan Hill, dumped the crap off their payroll (i.e. Luke Walton and Jason Kapono) and then willed their way to 3rd place in the West. Now they’ve beaten the Denver Nuggets twice…handily and are on their way to Denver to steal at least one of the next two games. The Lakers are the only team with 2 legitimate 7 footers that can go drop 20+ points and grab 10+ boards a game. We all know about Kobe. Their only glaring weakness is the bench. I’m concerned about Ron, I mean Metta World Idiot coming back and ruining their flow. Wish the league suspended him for the entire playoffs. Either way, if you’re looking for some playoff action, head over to Ticket Liquidator where they have the best seats for the best prices.
Just 1 week after Dwayne Wade broke Kobe Bryant’s nose and gave him a concussion in an All-star game, Kobe Bryant punched the entire Heat team right in the mouth. In what everyone (including myself) thought was going to be a beat-down by the Lebron led Heat, turned out to be quite the opposite. Bryant came out storming, with 16 points in the first quarter alone. He finished the game with 33. The big men also dominated, with each Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol posting double-doubles. I’m not gonna say it but I’m beginning to see Ron Artest, err Metta World Peace showing flashes of his Sacramento and Houston years when he was averaging close to 20 points again. Don’t count this Lakers team out. Everyone has been giving the crown to the Clippers and not giving the Lake Show a chance. Don’t look now but they have the 4th best record in the West with plenty of time to move past the Clips. Second half of the season should be sick.
