LOS ANGELES LAKERS: 1 DOWN, 3 TO GO

What a game! Kobe Bryant and his fellow Lakers did what they needed to in Game 1 of the NBA Finals: not just win, but send a message.  Sure, there may have been a couple of bad calls but they went both ways. Kobe leading the way with 30 and my dog RON ARTEST bringin’ the noise. This guy brought intensity from the first minute, setting the tone physically with a double tech  with Paul Pierce.  Shooting 3-5 from behind the arc didn’t hurt either. Celtics looked a little discombobulated.  KG played like he was 34, Ray Allen was plagued with foul trouble; Rajon Rondo looked average (even though he filled the box scores); and the old psycho Rasheed Wallace was back at his old tricks.  He played a decent game on paper but mentally, this guy just took his whole team out of the game. Back to the series, Lakers MUST win game 2. Not celebrating yet, but frankly, I think the Lakers could play a lot better, which is something Boston should be very scared of. I’d like to see Pau Gasolget going a little bit more offensively early on and Lamar Odom, well, I’d like to see 19 and 19. Next game Sunday. Beat BOS-TON, beat BOS-TON, beat BOS-TON!!!
