Ten predictions for the Lakers and Magic in the NBA Finals

Lakers Examiner: President Barack Obama recently picked the Los Angeles Lakers to beat the Orlando Magic in six games in this year’s NBA Finals.

This is actually more of an endorsement for the Lakers than you would think, since Obama is a huge basketball fan and correctly picked UNC to win the NCAA Tournament this year.

So, following in the footsteps of my bi-racial idol, I decided to put down my own set of predictions about this year’s Finals. Please enjoy…

  2. Magic Johnson, covering the Finals for ABC, will optimistically look up from his notes everytime someone says “Magic,” only to realize they are talking about the team, not the Laker great.
  3. Lamar Odom will take his love of candy to the next level by arriving to games dressed as Johnny Depp in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

    Loved #3. Would love to see “Candy Man” Odom with the Wonka Top Hat on his head at a post game conference.

    Would love to see a “W” more than anything else.
