I'll be the first to admit that I just didn't think the Lakers had enough. I couldn't for the life of me understand how Pau Gasol, Derrick Fisher, and Lamar Odom were going to be enough for Kobe to take the team to the next level. Boy was I wrong.
All Kobe did tonight was pour in 39 points and lead his Lakers into the NBA Finals. Oh and Sasha Vujacic either made some people very happy or very very pissed off (I'll explain after the video)
Not only is Vujacic a dick for taking that shot (I would have have done more than give him a look like Finley did), but someone ask me what the spread for the game was? Go ahead ask....
Lakers by 7 and a half points.
Amazing. Did you hear that collective gasp? That was probably half of the attendees at the Sportsbooks in Vegas just passing out. Anywho, the Lakers look unstoppable at this point and I just like everyone else is hoping for a Lakers-Celtics Final, but just having Kobe in the Finals should be enough to grab my attention.
Also, bravo to the Spurs who are definitely a dynasty in my book. Hopefully Duncan, Parker, and Ginobili can keep it together for a few more years and this can be a yearly showdown. One more scoring wing player and this series would be much closer (bye bye Michael Finley).
