In my mind, we've already won tonight. I think the Nuggets will come out stronger, but we will control the game. This could be the game we lose, kinda like the Boston Series, but frankly, Bynum and Kobe are too much for this team, and Ebanks and Hill's youth keeps us from getting as non-chalant as Fish and Odom's presence made this team.

We feel less like champions.
Thats why, along with money, i think we can do better by trading Pau , because you get depth, and you make Kobe and Bynum have something to prove.
Bynum even moreso than Kobe. Along with Mike Brown's hunger.

But i digress, usually we lose Game 3s, and extend the series. Mike Brown teams usually perform well in the early rounds.

I haven't seen this team in a great rhythm since Kobe's return where i think they can beat a good team four straight times.
However, perhaps the chamber they went into in Sacremento, along with focusing on one team, and being as rested as they have been in a while.

Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers

Easy. The United-Earth Lakers (because the Laker franchise will represent humanity) will play the Plutonian Destructos for the Inter-Galactic Basketball Universe Title.
Backstory: The aliens of Pluto are pissed at Kobe for not signing with their team after saying "Ill play in Pluto" in 2007 after they finally received the news 20 years later.

I know corny and lame but I had fun with it.
Point being, walk before we run with it, let's take it one game at a time.
