I don’t know why the Lakers haters are calling me and posting comments for me. If you saw my earlier post, I had the Lakers losing in the first round.
I was just happy that the Lakers made it to the playoffs this year. I did not expect that at all. I think it happened because of the 11-3 run at the end of the season and also because the other bubble teams imploded at the same time.
But the fact that Lakers took 3 games off Phoenix made the series more interesting and in fact brought more interest for me to follow them next year even more closely.
Anyway, my picks for the second round:
San Antonio over Dallas
Clippers over Phoenix (if Lakers can take 3, Clippers will win it in 5!)
Nets over Miami
Detroit over Cleveland
I would love Cleveland to beat Detroit even at the risk of getting LeBron more hype. I think I can ignore that hype but not Detroit’s 🙂
And of course, I am rooting for the Clippers now. I do not want Raja Bell to have any more fun at the expense of Kobe.
Can you imagine Raja Bell is given a hero’s welcome in Phoenix after he floored Kobe on National TV???? Pathetic state of affairs. I hated the guy when he played for Dallas and I still hate him.
