The TRUTH about Sports

Relax Lakers Fans

Lakers Rockets BasketballEveryone, just relax.  So the Rockets are taking them to a Game 7.  So the Rockets spanked them without Yao Ming or T- Mac. So, who cares.  I think everyone is forgetting what the Celtics did last year.  They went to a game 7 against both the Hawks and the Cavs, and a game six against Detroit. Everyone was saying “Oh, they don’t stand a chance against the Lakers; they can’t win on the road; they’re too soft.” We all know what happened next. I’m not saying the Lakers are cruising to the Finals, but they are gonna breeze past the Rockets. Sure it’s going to a “decisive” game 7 and “anything can happen.” I’ll give credit to  Houston, they put up a valiant effort but at the end of the day, they’re not gonna win in LA without Yao.  That’s it. It’s plain and simple. The game will be close in the first half.  The Lakers will pull away at the end of the third.  Artest will get kicked out.  Thanks for coming. I hear Cancun’s great at this time of the year.  Now Denver on the other hand, throw out my relaxation argument. These guys are stacked, hungry, and most importantly, HEALTHY. I’m not gonna get into the Western Conference Finals though. I’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.  In the meantime, enjoy Game 7, on Sunday. Here in LA, there’s nothing to worry about.

  1. Just a question for you, a fellow Lakers fan.

    How do you account for Phil Jackson’s strange behavior this year? I read a good article by John Hollinger talking about how it seems like he’s just phoning this season in. I mean, he never confronts the team’s problems in press conferences, he always says how the team just needs to play their own game and relax, and I dunno, it just seems like he has just as much to lose if the Lakers get bounced as Kobe does.
