Lets Go Lakers
The Los Angeles Lakers are the Yankees of the NBA, who have just bought an All star team and have to be the Western Conference favorite going into the season. It appears that Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic has been traded to LA, Howard who was the franchise player of Orlando took a huge dump on all the Magic fans turning his back on the team who drafted him in similar fashion as Lebron did the Cavaliers, but will this guarantee a championship? Howard sure hopes so. The Lakers also picked up aging point guard Steve Nash. Nash who is approaching 40, is still a threat if he can stay on the court and not be laying on the sidelines with a back brace on, he has had continued health problems of late, and he has never been able to beat the Lakers, so I guess the old saying is really true, if you can’t beat’em, join’em! Kobe, the captain of the Lakers who is playing for team USA in the Olympics had this to say, “ Well, it looks like Super Man has found a home.” Kobe ,who hasn’t done particularly well with other super stars in the past, remember Shaq and his hip hop freestyle flow, “Kobe, tell me how my ass tastes.” Which is about the fall out between the two jaded super stars, well hopefully Kobe has matured and come to a realization that he is an aging star kind of like a white dwarf and right now Howard is a red giant and even though the white dwarf is still extremely powerful right up until it dies and implodes and becomes a black hole, it is time to let the young star shine and take over. With Kobe and Nash on the perimeter shooting jumpers and Howard on the inside snatching rebounds and only dunking, the Lakers will win the championship next year, you heard it here first on my blog folks, but if Howard takes those chicken wing hook shots outside the dotted line in the paint, instead of kicking it back out to Kobe, well then I don’t know if they will be able to get past the Thunder. The Lakers biggest enemy now is themselves, can they all get along? I think so, but if they do not win the championship it is time to fire their coach, and hire Magic. Andrew Bynum, who is a retard and showed his retardation in critical times in the playoffs the last two years against Dallas and the Thunder was traded to the 76ers who will eventually treat him like Kuami Brown, remember him, No, well anyway he was terrible. The Lakers also will get Chris Duhon from the Magic the aging Duke point guard . Pau Gasol also is staying put with the Lakers which is a big help, even though he cannot get rebounds he can hit jumpers and free throws and I believe he will be the X Factor for the Lakers, I wonder what Simon Powel thinks about it, but anyway the Lakers are my favorite to when the championship next year, who do you think will win?
