Miami Thrice? Don’t forget about Lakers

Great article in the Denver Post. Not EVERYONE is sold on the Super Team just yet.

“People talk about what’s hot at the moment,” Nuggets all-star forward Carmelo Anthony said. “Miami is hot at the moment.”

How soon folks forget that four months ago the Lakers won their second consecutive championship.

While the world fawns over “Miami Thrice” — which, incidentally, is a perfectly awful nickname — in L.A., the Lakers are calmly and confidently preparing for another title quest.

    Another good reason for the ‘new’ miami team. It is a sitting target for all other teams, instead of the Lakers. We know that Championship teams are usually targeted by all the other teams in the NBA, and those other teams save up their mojo and take their “A” game to the Championship team.
    .
    But now those teams have to save it up for miami, the ‘team to beat’ (apparently). With the focus ‘somewhere else’, the Lakers can play a ‘better paced’ season, and have plenty left for the playoffs/finals.

    I think the best thing that could have happened to the Lakers is Miami.
    Seriously like you said above, many teams will do everything to beat them and the Lakers next. Also the focus on the media will be on Miami.
    Meanwhile the Lakers will just be on stealth mode and strike when it matters most.
    Also Miami will be another reason for Kobe to play his best to dethroned Lebron and Wade at the same time.
    I love it.

      haha I agree with you, the Lakers are like the “Stealth Fighter, you will not see them coming until you are already destroyed.”

      Can’t wait to see the downfall of the Most Awaited Hype this season.
