[SPORTS] LAKERS DEFEAT THE HEAT 93-83 [FINALS PREVIEW?]

The Lakers and Heat met up yesterday at the Staples Center for there 2nd of 2 matchups for the season. This time the outcome was very different. The Lakers who have only lost 2 games at home, made sure to keep it that way. The Miami Heat, who were without Chris Bosh, because of a death in his family, came into Staples after losing by 1 to the Utah Jazz. Where most criticized James again, for not being willing to take the last shot in the game, instead opting to pass to teammate Udonis Haslem.

Okay so first let me just say this, people get over it! Lebron James does not, and may not ever develop the killer instinct of Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant. Just allow him to be the new era Oscar Robertson of the league. We have never witnessed a specimen of his type when it comes to an ALL AROUND GAME. Now don’t get this twisted for me becoming a Lebron James fan, uh uh..won’t happen. LOL

Now, with that being said, shout out to Metta World Peace aka the artist formerly known as Ron Artest, who from the tip, had his sites set on making LJ work for every shot, point, assist he made. If you were paying attention, you would have seen that MWP has dropped some significant amount of weight since the beginning of the season, and his body finally looks toned, chisled, and ready to do work. It’s also evident by the fact that he has had 3 dunks in the past 3 games. To me he was the difference in this game. His stat line read, 17pts/4steals (the numbers that matter most to me). Check out what Ron said during a post game interview with NBA TV, as he made the Lakers Big 3, the big 4!

I could go on to talk about the great play of Andrew Bynum as well, but at this point, people should really be getting over this trade Bynum for Howard thing. It’s one thing that I can’t stand, is panting over a guy who does not want to be on your team. Howard is so afraid of the continual comparisons to Shaq, that he is willing to forfeit his possibility of becoming a champion right now, by playing with the best player in the world, Kobe Bryant. So if Brooklyn is where he wants to be, then so be it. We will see him in the finals, and take his candy one more time.

PAGING LAKERS ELUSIVE 15TH NBA CHAMPIONSHIP…HELLO

So after watching Game 3 last night, I wanted to begin to write my thoughts, but I had SO MUCH going on, but the one thing that continued to stick out was: WHY IS LARRY OBRIEN TROPHY PLAYING HIDE-AND-SEEK WITH KOBE BRYANT, AND THE LAKERS? LakersNation, let’s take it back to 2003-2004, the Lakers go out and get Karl Malone and Gary Payton arguably two future hall of famers, and the Lakers are on a roll, and back in the finals against the up and coming Detroit Pistons, and what happens….KARL MALONE SUFFERS HIS FIRST MAJOR KNEE INJURY, and he goes out, and the Pistons go nuts, and our Lakers lose the series 4-1. The team implodes, and our Lakers go in a downward spiral. But not to VISIT that history too much, let’s fast-forward to 2007-2008 and things turn around in a big way…we were praying for Kevin Garnett (willing to give up Bynum & Gasol), but we get something BETTER, yea I said better, we got Pau Gasol, for NOTHING…and we get the Fish back and the Lakers were marching back to the finals, with EASE! Yet in the finals versus Boston we were SERIOUSLY outplayed, and suffered a crushing defeat. Possibly that would have been Kobe’s 5th ring, and the Lakers 16th, and now the Lakers are back again, with a CHIP on their players, and in a big close out game that can give the Lakers a COMMANDING 3 games to 0 lead, our SUPERSTAR, THE BEST ON THE PLANET, (DON’T GET IT TWISTED) missed 5 free throws, and a crucial turnover! I’m not even going to say anything else bad about Kobe or the Lakers as a whole, because it was a miracle that the Lakers actually had many opportunities to win this game…Kobe will NEVER DO THAT AGAIN, in a game of this magnitude.

Much has been said about Kobe “hitting a wall” but his response to that is: “so what if I did, I’ll just run right through it!” That tells me that no matter how “elusive” this 4th championship is attempting to be, in 2009 Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers have found it “ducking in the corner”, yet giving off a GOLDEN GLOW, not being able to truly hide itself…always smiling, but being a big “tease”! I don’t think the Lakers will allow this Trophy to get away this time, it’s like meeting up with the love of your life one more time, and you are refusing to go home without him/her! ATTAINING THE CHAMPIONSHIP IS ABOUT TIMING, AND LAKERNATION IT’S THE LAKERS TIME! It was also TIME for the Orlando Magic to get their first ever NBA Finals win, so congratulations magic fans, what you were suppose to receive you got it, now MOVE OVER, cause the LakerShow is coming for the gold.

Sidenote: The Orlando Magic is now 7-0 at home when 7yr old Gina Marie Incandela sings the national anthem, that includes last night game, so now it’s going to be a shame that this beautiful little girl will have to take her first “L” of her career…lol. Hey they put her in this…lol. LAKER WORLD ORDER STAND UP!

Kevin Garnett gives the Lakers the motivation they need to WIN

KG has finally given Kobe what he needed to make HISTORY. Those comments, though true to some point, will surely light a fire under OUR entire TEAM. It’s one thing that I do know, and this finals will be the display of great TEAM BALL. We have proven time and time again that when we play TEAM BALL, Boston CANNOT play with us. Now we are going to play this thing for the next 144 minutes. It’s a 1st time for everything, and the Lakers will be the first to comeback from a 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals. Let’s Go Lakers.
