As much as I want the Lakers to win, they could not win 2 back to back in the beginning of the series, so why would they be able to do it at the end. It seems the younger players on the LA team do not want it as much. The officiating has been flat out horrible, but that is a different story. The ball did not even get close to the rim and they called it Celtics ball.

On a different note, what does it take to get rid of Jeff Van Gundy, I have to constantly mute my TV.

Pbbbbbbtttttttt!! Gasol/Fish rebirth, Artest hits the offensive glass, Kobe gets it done in the fourth. Lakers wipe up in the seventh.

Boston = p.u.t.o.s.

I haven't seen an update on Odom. If he really has the flu that isn't good but sometimes the press calls a (head)cold the flu.

I said before the series started that the Lakers would win it and I still say that. This is NOT 2008 where Boston has the luxury of having games 6 and 7 at home. I've been following the Lakers since 1986 although not as much the last couple years but I just think that Kobe Bryant won't allow the Lakers to lose again. He knows the importance of the situation. Who cares about his legacy and all that other stuff? Kobe just wants to win, no matter who the Lakers play. For Kobe the bottom line is winning and even if he doesn't get his 5th title this year, he is still one of the game's great players. I think the Lakers win tonight in Game 6. Besides, in a couple years the Celtics will be not as good a team while the Lakers will be competitive. I personally think all the talk about a great legacy and comparisons to Magic Johnson are just nothing more than talk to distract people in this country from what the real issues are. It is just a game.

It's the 4th quarter w/ 9 minutes more to play so it is conceivable that the Celtics could catch up. But that is very unlikely. Actually I don't get it! What happened to Boston? Doesn't make sense that they would play so poorly considering their performance in games 4 & 5.

Thursday night is it!!! Shannon Brown is unreal!

With game 6 won decisively by the Lakers....I still have to ask the question:
do you feel the win was legit, given the 1st Quarter injury to Perkins?

I ask the question as a lifetime Laker fan. Yes, Lakers won big, were ahead and on a run when Perkins went down, and have been playing with an injured Bynum the whole series. Ok, maybe I just answered my own question.

You did! Bynum's injury could still cost the Lakers a victory on Thursday. Perkins is half the player Bynum is. Look at the stats:
Perkins: NBA.com : Kendrick Perkins Info Page

Bynum: NBA.com : Andrew Bynum Info Page

The Lakers are the underdogs who could very well stomp Boston!
