It's funny because I guy before the season started said on this forum that he bet 20 grand on the lakers making the finals, and 20 grand on them winning the finals, and he was calculating his earnings and was trying to convince everyone that they should invest any large amount of money they have laying around on the lakers making the finals because it was the "safest bet you could possibly make." Wow do I feel sorry for that guy.

Fans weren't to blame , our expectations was realistic. making the finals was realistic .. but this came out of the blue.

I still have this idea in my mind if nash kobe howard played alone against any team we'd win , but they don't know what they're good at yet as a team.

Matt Barnes is ballin' for the Clippers. 'Tawn ain't doin' jack. Damn was I wrong about that haha. Hindsight's a B.

Clippers' system fits him better that what we had here when he was here with Mike Brown. They're more uptempo and he excels at fast-breaking, cutting, slashing, lots of activity/movement.

You become optimistic because we finished the game good against SA even though they gave up.

And there was plenty of reason to be at that time. Many analysts called them arguably the greatest starting five ever. Barkley said they would get to the finals, Tim Legler said they would be unguardable, they were the freakin highest rated team on 2k13. You can count over 30 individual awards and honors collected among the starters. No one would have predicted they would be at this point.
