What can I say? I’m a selfish fan. Come on, admit it, when you first saw the split screen Kobe/Shaq ad you knew things would be insanely intense if the Lakers met the Suns in the post-season. Instead, we as a Lakers Nation were let down.
With flawless execution, the Suns beat – 2 years in a row – a Smush parker “run” Lakers squad… then to see the stupid desicion making by Nash, careless turnovers, and horrible execution… makes me angry as a fan the Suns are, yes I’m saying it, OUT of the post-season.
However, sometimes you can’t forget the trash talking the Suns did. The very man walking off the court in the picture said this about our Lakers after we destroyed them extremely early in the season:
“You mean the eight minutes he took over there to explain maybe one play that he probably didn’t run? Yeah, I was pretty upset,” D’Antoni said. “I thought he disrespected our players. But he likes to play mind games, and that’s fine. He might want to try to do it in playoff time when we bust them every year. We have them three more times. . . . That’s fine.”
Moral of the post: Karma is a Shaq coach D. Karma is a Shaq…
