Heres the bottom line: The fact that the Lakers are the Champs is overblown. The last eight years the defending champs have failed to repeat in the NBA. Since Kobe Bryant kicked Shaq outta town the Lakers have won ONE title, failed to make the playoffs once and been knocked out in the 1st-Round twice. What exactly are people supposed to be in awe of?
You see, the Lakers are more bark than bite. They and their fans like to throw out the purple and gold jerseys, point to the rafters and hope opponents buckle to their knees in fear. Fact is these Lakers are hurt, old and slow. Im not budging. Thunder in six. That means they win Game Five tonight in L.A.
