Once may be luck, twice may be coincidence, but three times? Great teams of talent, skill, and knowledge push the balance of luck in their favor, and that's what the Lakers do. The ability and resolve to persevere through a 15 point deficit...the poise to hit the big shots...the size, strength, and determination to take it to the heart of a defense.
This is a dynasty, one of the greatest ever, and will be for years to come.

I GUESS IT WAS LUCK THAT THE QUEENS LOST THAT BIG LEAD IN GAME 4, WHEN HORRY MADE THAT SHOT.
I GUESS IT WAS LUCK THAT THE QUEENS MISSED ALL THEIR FREE THROWS IN GAME 7, THAT COST THEM THE GAME.
GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!!!!
LUCK DOES NOT SIMPLY HAPPEN ON CHANCE. LUCK IS A RESULT OF HARD WORK AND DETERMINATION.
CALLING THE LAKERS LUCKY IS ANOTHER LAKERS HATER COMMENT.
THATS WHAT I THIMK.

As for the "luck" crap people are talking, it just shows a lack of class. I guess Magic and Kareem were "lucky" to win 5 titles in the 80s. I guess Jordan was "lucky" to win 6.
All this Laker Hating just makes the winning that much better.
Once again, it'll be a great rivarly if the Queens ever win a series against us.
