The suites at Dodger stadium, on the other hand, just out over the crowd and are more open, so that experience is a 180 from Staples.

And, yeah, the dessert cart is hard to beat.

The amount of Douchebraggary in this post is what's hard to beat.

tight whistle? advantage lakers.
even whistle? even series.
loose whistle? advantage celtics.

if mccutchen or callahan is on game 2, bet the celtics hard. salvatore or bavetta? go lakers.
Good observation on the tightness affecting the teams' chances, but I've got to bring up Simmons again, who actually felt good that Crawford was on last night because apparently he tends to favor the road team. He also pointed this out throughout the game a handful of times in his running commentary.

I'm only just now getting to this comment, but the night of the last week of the NFL season, when the Cowboys blanked the Eagles and won the division, Kobe and Co. destroyed the Mavericks to the tune of 131-96*. What did he chalk this beatdown up to?

Just throwing that out there.

This is awesome:

Doc Rivers hides $2600 in the Staples Center ceiling - Ball Don't Lie - NBA - Yahoo! Sports


Doc is ok in my book.

I'm sure Peef will say that Kobe only liked them because of McNabb.

Yeah, my first sentence really reeks of entitlement.

Fox had a lot of tickets. I worked for Fox. I would get lucky and get said tickets now and then.

Now who doesn't have the sense of humor?

Must be from breathing all that suite rarefied air.

I'll admit to misreading a bunch of posts this week, this one included.

I'm ultra-sensitive for some reason.

Fuck Bill Simmons, though.

Oh, so suddenly you're from Philly when it's convenient for your trash talk, Kobe? Fuck him and his couch.

Brilliant. He said nothing about Philly, he's an asshole. He mentions the Eagles positively, he's an asshole.

You ever consider the possibility that he was an Eagles fan but followed a different NBA team as a kid?

Does anyone know what Phil Jackson said to Chris Rock? Chris' face was priceless when he was approached by him.

The song actually made me wish I was a Lakers fan. I considered myself a Pau fan when he was in Memphis but can't now. Either way, opportune song, James Murphy.

Nothing would make we wish that I was a Lakers fan, though if I was ever in LA, I would love to go to a game. Laz's hero, Stevie Spielberg, got a shoutout last night.

Well, yeah. As much as it sucks being a Mavericks fan, I couldn't imagine being anything else. I seem to be made to suffer. It's my lot in life.

But then again, YLB, we appear to be fans of the same team.

I loathed the Lakers before moving to LA.

After living there for 10 years, I never did become a fan (76ers 4 LYFE. Laz is right, sometimes we don't grow up rooting for our hometown teams) but I had so many friends that are fans that it got hard to root against them. Plus, those wars with the Kings were going on when I lived there and that and the three-peat of course were all very exciting.

The games were almost invariably fun to attend.

Whoever wrote that article is a an overweight glob of grease.

If Dwight plays an entire season with the intensity of the last 3 games of that Celtics series, they will win a title, or come damn close. He was relishing being the villain, and it was awesome. The window is nowhere near closing, especially with the uncertainty that is the Eastern Conference.

Seeing ultra-competitive games in person, regardless of any sort of fan loyalty, are incredibly fun to watch. Plus, it'd be better than going to a Clippers game.
