Dr. S what about what the Dallas Mavericks are going to do to the Los Angeles Lakers tonight and this series. The Hornets and Chris Paul even had Kobie faking injuries, calling referees out of their names, and lying about formerly beating up other people at his high school. Kobie probably can't even beat up his children. It will be hard on me this series because I hate the Lakers and the Mavericks. In fact, I hate everything in Dallas including the Dallas Cowcissies and the Dallas Cheerleaders. However, I do like the former Dallas Cheerleader Joe Marie who starred in the hit series Girlfriend. I pretended she was Steeler Girl as I looked at her. I'm pulling or Memphis or Oklahoma to take it all.

I will be pulling for the unde-rated, over-looked, down-trodden, MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES. This team is awsome and has the potential of winning this year's NBA title. Go GRIZZLIES!!

Queen do you mind if I go Jennifer Hudson for a second? You said you were a Lakers' fan in the flesh and they would win another NBA Championship this year. You said they would beat Dallas. And you said Kobie isn't a wussy-head. Where they at? Where they at? Where tthheeyy aaaatttt? Down 2 to 0. Where they at? Where they at? Down two to zero. Where day at? Down two to zero to Dallas.

I don't find it "cruel" at all. KOBE ISN"T A WUSSYHEAD whatever that is???? Again, bandwagonners get no recognition from me and each year another one pops up! I AM STILL A LAKER FAN in as we sit on the banks of the fishing pond after an embarassing display against Dallas. THEY still won't win! I'm scratching my head trying to figure this one out, but I am certainly willing to admit that we played like losers and thus, we lost. We are still CHAMPIONS, just took a year off. I wish the Bulls all the luck in the world!!!!! Down with the HEAT and the CELTICS....anybody else....do ya thang!!! (Grizzlies....HA!!!!)

What the towering giant Bynum did to Lil Man is uncalled for and a reflection of the true character of the Lakers. Bynum wasn't trying to block the shot, he was trying to kill Lil Man. Mrs. Kardashan-Odom jumped on Lamar last night telling him she didn't appreciate him embarrassing the family like that, that's Kim's job. You're a good sport, Queen. You went to Tougaloo, I knew you were.

Queen I forgot to add that Lil man laid his punkass down on the floor like he was dead until the giant was arrested, tried and executed like all lil men have been trained to do since infancy. Then he got up and continued his slaying of the Lakers.

I am not in favor of Bynum's actions or Lamar's to be frank. Lakers, as with many other players on other teams, have had sour displays of sportsmanship in the past, but one has to admit that under the leadership of Phil Jackson, that hasn't been seen. It was a terrible display of sour grapes. Clearly getting swept did not feel good and the younger Lakers let their emotions get the best of them. I just feel bad that his is how Phil has to sign off. We're better than that. HOnestly, I won't make excuses for them, they are champions and should - at all times - behave like that. Regardless of being on the fishing dock today, we are still CHAMPIONS....just face it....it's one of life's certainties! We fall down; but we get up! LOL And....as long as the Loston Celtricks go home and the Miami Freaks don't win, the season isn't a total loss!!!! LAKERLIFER!!!!

All I got to say is, that was a hell of a game last night between the Grizzlies & Thunder - 3 OT's - the crowd was into it, they hung in there as long as they could, you could feel the emotional drain the screen. Game ended at 12:40 a.m. - WOW Gasol, Conley, Mayo, Randolph a.k.a Eddie Winslow, heck - the whole roster, played hard. I gotta take my hat off to to them. But I have a hard time seeing them regrouping after a lost like that, if they pull it off, I will be surprised.
