I don't think I agree with that.

Everyone was thinking that Bynum was going to be the missing link for the Lakers to win it, that was a joke.
I believe that the efforts of Ariza made the difference...from the outside and on the defensive end.
I would have loved to see Garnett involved, too bad. I respect him (but hate his grin).
I gotta check to see when we play the Celtics.

agree to disagree... i think the celtics would have defeated the lakers in 5, maybe 6 games with a healthy Garnett. heck, the celtics almost beat orlando as is.

I know a healthy Garnett makes a huge difference, but a healthy Nelson makes a sizable difference for the Magic, too. Not trying to make excuses, that was an excellent series. The Magic didn't get into a rhythm until Game 6 of that series, and rode that until the first game of the Finals. YIKES. The moves they made this season help them match-up better with a physical team like the Celtics, not that they can match their intensity or chemistry right now.

This is the last year for the Celts to win a title with this group, that's for sure. Who knows what happens with Rondo after this season, too.

Still a fucking douchebag:

Jordan's night to remember turns petty - NBA - Yahoo! Sports

I feel sorry for people who worship this guy.

The dude that wrote that article is probably a bitter Knicks or Jazz fan.

We were just talking about that here at work, Laz. I mean, such a tremendous career, a true sports icon, and a complete fucking asshole. That shit flies when you're in uniform a lot better than when you're getting your HOF induction. Weak.

I imagine there are people who think Bill Russell's a jerk too, but the difference is he actually has principles that one can admire.

Russel stood for something, despite his prickly demeanor.

Jordan stands for Jordan.

Do not get me wrong: Jordan is the best basketball player I've ever seen and I hold him in insanely high regard athletically. Just the best.

But off the court, yeah, hard to like him. I wish he was above the pettiness he displayed at his induction.

I'm gonna guess that people are way overblowing this "pettiness" and probably just don't get the man's sense of humor. Just a guess.

The man made Space Jam, for Christ's sake. Leave him alone.

You guessed wrong. It's not really a secret that he's a colossal asshole in myriad ways.
