    Hey guys!! Great job on this show i rly enjoyed!! (that comment on Artest crazy story was Hilarious (i hope that guy got ejected).
    Thinking about game 2 and it’s blow out as usual i was thinking….. i think i hae to take this one on the Zen Master…. he should know by know that our bench mob isn’t on great shape and always cool of the momentum…but wth waas taht line up in the 2 quarter…… i never seen that line up before, actually i think anyone did… it can work good on paper but we all saw how it work on the game. Let me know your opinions on that.
    I’ve been listening this podcast for a while now and it’s been great but i have a suggestion. It’s playoff time probably lakers are going to win the championship and kobe the finals MVP so why won’t you go crazy and do something special like a video podcast sometimes! i think that would be great.

    sorry for the long text, keep up the good work and cheers from your #1 Portuguese fan.

    I forgot to pay tribute to Chick as we always do and put the podcast in the refrigerator.

    Ahhh I feel like an idiot.

    CHICK “The Golden Throat”, the best to ever call a game!, it wont happen again!

    GO LAKERS!

    Hey guys, I see your points on the Lakers PA announcer and I agree with everything you said. I never had a problem with him but what triggered my comment on him I guess I was just kind of angry watching the Lakers game after the Celtics because the the Celtics crowd was cheering for every little thing and their pa was chanting Defense even when the were up by double digits and the Lakers game felt like I was watching a basketball game being played in the library. You guys do a great job and I always enjoy getting an intelligent response to a comment. Ima call the score for game 3. 103-94 Lakers!

    Hi guys, what’s up ?

    For me last night’s game was one of the best games if not the best so far in the playoffs. That’s because:

    - We played with the needed energy thoughout the game.
    - We played good D. Kobe with 3 blocks ( 2 on Yao ) and 2 steals. He brought energy on the defensive end when his shot wasn’t falling. Not to mention the other guys…
    - We actually kept a lead.
    - Jordan Farmar showed up, which was huge. He just silenced all the doubters. Luke contributed too.
    - Kobe was Kobe. He was an assassin. Kobe laid waste on the best defensive duo that ever faced him – Battier and Artest all night long. He’s been averaging 35 ppg in the second round. Talk about a great scorer…

    Of course there’s room for improvement, but I think it was a good game overall

    Hey guys, great podcast once again. Do you guys think the Cavs can go undefeated through out the playoffs? In the regular season, they went undefeated at home until we stopped them and I was wondering if the same thing could happen in the Finals.
