Well, it was bad to see them go out in 4 just like that. Dallas may just win this thing (I think that they'll give Miami fits...especially if they try to put Lebron on Dirk, assuming either team makes it).

Mavs showed no class either by launching up THREE After THREE when they were already up 36

Hey, it shamed me watching that, as a lifelong Laker fan. These people are lauded as heroes here in Los Angeles, and a role model for many young people here. Is that the kind of example they want to show to people here, when you don't win, you act like babies? That's not the team I wanna see win!

That just goes to show you that many of the Laker players need to be brought back down to earth.

Again, Mavericks straight out outplayed the Lakers. Everyone knows it. I wish you all the best for the finals! DFW sports have been going through somewhat of a rough period lately (Cowboys flopping last season, Rangers losing the world series, etc.), so I wish you guys the best!

However, if its against the Chicago Bulls, the 1990s kid has to come out of me and cheer for the Bulls

The REAL question is why did the Lakers defense allow them to make so many 3s?

Like I said.
You're always wrong.

No the question is why keep shooting them with the game was no longer in reach?

Fairly obvious. If they're going to get assaulted from shooting in the paint then they'll just have to shoot from outside.

Did you go to LA schools? Or what?

I thought they should have left all the starters in there to run up the score after the Flakers dished out those cheap shots. Can't blame Dallas for making all their threes. Especially the ones at the end that were taken after they ran the shot clock all the way down. What are they supposed to do, just sit there and let the shot clock run out? Typical clueless Flaker fan.

It wasn't a cheap shot, it's called MAN BALL

Another reason why Kobe could never be the goat....That belongs to his Airness. The Lakers will heavily pursue D. Howard in some bogus trade and the media will begin the hype.. It already has begun.
