all these people who say defense wins championships are morons... no matter how good a defense is, the team that scores the most points still wins the game.

you can play great defense, but if you don't score, you're not gonna win. you can play great defense, but if you don't rebound, you're not gonna win. you can play great offense, but if you can't stop anybody, you're not gonna win. there is no one thing that wins championships... it takes a proper balance of all aspects of the game to win.

kobe is finally starting to make good decisions on the court, unfortunatly for the fakers it may be too little too late.


edit: i take that back... kobe just got T'd up... and al michales just thought a replay of the original T was a second T... is he even in the building or is he just watching it on TV? what the hell.

edit again: kobe's shooting with 3 guys on him again... so much for good decision making.

i feel sorry for shaq... he's played great in this series (32 points and 20 boards tonight), but kobe, phil and the rest of the fakers just haven't been able to get it done... larry brown is making the zen master look like a CYO coach. swell job by slava medvedenko to get into a shoving match with rasheed wallace, which reminded 'sheed that hey... when i was a crazy mofo, i was pretty good.

if i'm jerry buss, i say good riddance to kobe bryant.

and the look on karl malone's face is priceless... it was the "i left utah to come to a gauranteed lock of a championship and i still can't catch a break" face.



darko says series over

no hollywood ending this time around for LA

dan patrick is wrong about Lakers in 7, hah

i'm glad pistons are winning because of the respect i've lost for payton, he should have went to the Warriors to play cuz thats where he's from. i grew up a sonics fan, i'm from there originally.

this series is lookin like the "Lakers had Malone, Payton, Shaq, & kobe and still couldn't win"

I call this series over!

as much as i think the lakers are done too, i made sure that it was darko who called the series over, so in case kobe has an epiphany over night and figures out how to use the double team to his advantage and the lakers actually win the next 3 games, i can just put all the blame on darko

Perhaps if he scored more than 2 points.
He and Payton have been pretty useless in the finals (OK so Malone's hurt, Payton's healthy), so I find it kind of funny that they'll both be denied a ring.
They thought they could just cruise to a ring, they had their shots vs MJ and failed, this riding the Lakers' coattails would have been kind of hollow anyway so I'm glad they will apparently be denied.

On another note...I must say I'm surprised the Pissed-ons stand 1 win away from the title...the '86 Celts would beat them 142-22 and MJ's Bulls would beat 'em 133-44 and the '87 Lakers would beat them 97-95.

isiah's pistons would've won by 30... this is not an all time championship team by any stretch of the imagination... but with one more win, darko milicic will have more rings than karl malone, john stockton, patrick ewing, charles barkley, ted williams, ernie banks and dan marino combined.

I know Headcaseinasuitache likes the "local" spin.....

I realized last night that one of the five starters on the Lakers might not make it into the Hall of Fame. But, when you look at where he came from, it is pretty amazing to think that Devean George came from a Div. III program (Augsburg College from the MIAC - which has been dominated by my College for YEARS - even when Devean played there). He also graduated from one of the local Minneapolis area H.S. - ironically....of all the local talent (most of them going Div. I) that Minnesota has "developed" - he is the only one with a starting role.

Go pistons.

may i correct myself...
shaq- 36 points, 20 boards, 16-21 shooting (76%)
kobe- 20 points, 0 boards, 8-25 shooting (32%)

how can anyone justify kobe's shot selection with these stats?

just so there's no doubt... the stats for the series thus far.

shaq
game 1- 13 for 16 (81%), 34 points
game 2- 10 for 20 (50%), 29 points
game 3- 7 for 14 (50%), 14 points
game 4- 16 for 21 (76%), 36 points
Totals- 46 for 71 (65%), 113 points (28.3ppg)

kobe
game 1- 10 for 27 (37%), 25 points
game 2- 14 for 27 (52%), 33 points
game 3- 4 for 13 (31%), 11 points
game 4- 8 for 25 (32%), 20 points
Totals- 36 for 92 (39%), 89 points (22.3ppg)

so kobe bryant has taken 21 more shots than shaquille o'neal, scored 24 fewer points, shooting 26% worse... and when asked before game 4 if he thought shaq should be getting more touches, kobe flat out said "no." he disgusts me.

I love how everyone, even ABC, has been "Lakers, Lakers, Lakers" this entire time.

Give a little credit to the Pistons, people.

Thats because the Lakers have the "glamour" superstars and the Pistons really don't. Which will actually make the Pistons beating them that much better. Perhaps a bit of a wake up call to some NBA GM's.
Similar to the Marlins beating the Yankees in last yrs world series or the Pats beating the Rams in SuperBowl 36.
