    Shouldn’t they be practicing instead of telling us things we already know?

    I loved how Kobe said that Shaq didn’t make a difference and that people are crazy if they think shaq would have won it without him. I also liked how he was confident about his age and said it didn’t matter.

    Enough talk! Let’s play, already!

    ^^Agreed! All this down time and hearing all the “experts” and “analysts” breaking the game down is starting to annoy me!

    I heard most of them say that the Lakes would bring it home last year and they were wrong! I’ve always thought that the big 3 from the C3ld!cks were better than our team sans Bynum and Ariza. I think that the reason why they picked us last year was because of how we were tearing through the Western Conference in the playoffs and that the C3ld!cks looked so shaky going 7 games in every round leading up to the Finals.

    They were wrong last year and I hope that they’re wrong this year too! Hold your horses Lakers Nation… let me finish. I hope that they’re wrong about how much of a fight that the Magic will put up. Look it, I think that we can all attest to how good both sides are right? Having said that, would it be that much of a surprise if the Lakers would play just a little better in every game and pull this out in 4? Maybe a little bit of a surprise, but no one would be “shocked”!

    Obviously it’s safe to assume a long and tough series, but couldn’t either of the teams play just a little better than the other during every game and pull this out in 4 or 5? Given the jelling of the team(the way they finished their last game in Denver in Denver in a physical series), last year’s experience, the better franchise, the better city, the better and more loyal fans, the better coach and his chase for #10, and the BEST closer in the game EVER chasing his 1st win sans SNAQ and his 1st MVP of the Finals, would it really shock anyone to see the Lakers pulling a little bit deeper in every game and stunning the so called “experts”?

    Yeah, to be safe I guess I’ll concur and say Lakers in 6, but I have a sneaky feeling that we can do it in 5! For those of you who are old enough to remember, this reminds me of the game show
    ‘Name That Tune’ in the late 70s and early 80s. “I can name that tune in 6 notes”… “I can do it in 5″… “I can do it in 4″… “name that tune”! That’s all the Lakers need to do… name that tune!

    GO LAKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sketch. Name that tune? Priceless, dude!

    Kobe will not be denied.He’s had a few tough series in the Finals and NOW it’s time to Just Do It! Lakers will pull it all together with the Shroom eating $10 million dollar man or else Jerry Buss will take away Phil’s toy, Jeannie!
    The Lakers should have won last year,but were out coached! That’s twice now for Phil to blow another chance at tying Red!
    Go Lakers!
    Laker born,Laker breed,and when I die I’ll be Laker Dead!

    Laker fans! Sam the man from Pakistan, feeling u! we’re poised to win the nba championship this year, I gaurantee it. They say Orlando is a dangerous team. I don’t think so. I think the Lakers are the most dangerous team, as a matter of fact they are the most poisnous. Did you see black mamba flash his fangs after he stung the nug-thugs with a 3 pointer in the 6th game. It was a scary scene. As Chik Hearns used to say, “mothers hide your daughters.” I have a new name for kobe, “King Kobra Bryant” He is the the real king not Lebron James. Surely,before his majestic style & glorious plays every knee shall bend & every head shall roll. He carries the mark of the beast no. 24. He will (along with his army) single handedly destroy the forces of evil-superman & his frenchies n turkies. Laker fans get ready to party. Long live the king Kobra Bryant, amen!
