The Los Angeles Lakers will win the NBA championship.
I just wanted to put it in wording, make it official and let everybody know that this is not a possibility, nor is it a estimated guess, but it’s fact.
When it’s all said and done and the dust settles David Stern will walk to the middle of the floor and say. “Ladies and Gentlemen, I am proud to announce your 2008 NBA Champion, the Los Angeles Lakers!”
I was trying to look at this Lakers team from a different perspective, a non fan, and a person that doesn’t have a bias. Trying to figure out the negatives of this team, something you can say that would be a legit argument why the Lakers can’t win the NBA championship…
There isn’t any.
We are currently number one in the Western Conference, next to Houston; the hottest team in the league and if it wasn’t for a Tayshaun Prince last second 3 in Detroit, and a loose ball from Kobe at the end of the Hawks game we would be on a 14 game winning streak and undefeated in February.
However, let’s look at reality which is still pretty darn good. 9-1 since getting Pau Gasol, they have only lost one game in the month of February and are currently on an 8 game winning streak.
For the first time in years, analyst and “experts” are finally giving our team the credit that it deserves and saying the truth, the Lakers are the best team and are the favorite to go to the NBA Finals.
Oh, and did I forget to mention all this has happened without Andrew Bynum.
If Bynum would have stayed healthy I have no doubt he would have been an All-Star, the way he was on a tear throughout the league it couldn’t have gone unnoticed.
This current team could win an NBA championship. But in a couple of weeks we get another All-Star.
That’s right, not through trade or free agency but our own guy is coming back and adding to what already is an historic season.
The only thing Laker haters are saying is when Andrew Bynum comes back it might ruin the chemistry, or Bynum might not be 100%.
Please, if that’s the only thing we Laker fans have to worry about, I’d say that’s a good problem to have. Plus, let’s not forget that Phil Jackson is coaching this team, 9 NBA Championship rings speak for themselves and I think he will know more than any, how to re integrate both Bynum and Ariza back into the lineup
We are the best in the league right now and still don’t have arguably the best up and coming center next to Dwight Howard in the league.
So if you’re a betting man, or simply want to make a prediction let me urge you to make it now. You think this Laker team is good, Hah! You haven’t seen anything yet.
Kobe said, “All we got to do now is walk the walk”, and that is what they are doing. This Laker story dating back to the Years with Shaq, to the 1st round exits against Phoenix, and I’m proud to say that we are back and better than ever!
So I am here to guarantee that I will see you all somewhere on Figueroa Street for the Championship Parade, we might not bump into each other but just know that I’ll be somewhere in that crowd yelling, and cheering right with you.
Kobe Bryant will be regular season and Finals MVP at that point. Phil Jackson will have a ring for every finger, and Kupchak will be General Manager of the Year.
The league is scared right now, you heard Greg Popovich crying, the Suns traded Shawn Marion, Dallas tore apart there team to get Kidd.
All in hope to compete with the Lakers, well I got a news flash the other teams, your not better than us now, and when we get Andrew back were going to be damn near impossible to beat.
I’ll see you guys at the parade.
