Here are some scattered postgame comments and thoughts from the former dynamic duo…

Kobe Bryant

  • He felt as though tonight was a trap game, meaning that with the circumstances coming in, this could have been an upset.
  • When asked if he misses the challenge, that used to be Phoenix, “I wish they were still there so we can kick their ass.”
  • Shannon Brown’s dunk, which did not count, was probably one of the most athletic plays he has ever seen.
  • When asked about homecourt advantage, “Its not so much as having homecourt advantage to get a championship. Its more of us having the best record, just to say we have the best record.”

Shaquille O’Neal

  • Upset with the amount of shots taken. (Seven)
  • Nothing but praise for Pau Gasol — both as a player and a person.
  • Surprised by the warm ovation.
  • Call himself the “most dominate and most controversial big man in Lakers history,” and that’s how he wants to be remembered.

    Hahaha, what the hell?

    The Brown dunk happened while damn Nash was talking on the screen, so they didn’t even say anything about it. Shot clock ran out then he JAMMED on Sideshow Brook.

    lol. I may be going out on a limb but I don’t think that’s the right dunk.

    It’s not on youtube, I’d like to see it – they don’t give us ****ing Tv’s on my Europe Campus.
