With the Ron coming back, Nashty getting rest and coming back, Kobe being Kobe, EC catching his 2nd wind, Pau finding some POW, D12 getting that D12 on..................... I SAY IN DAMNIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.
I think we make it, but it's going to come down to the last day probably, and that will be nerve racking
"The first time I ever saw my uniform hanging in the locker I put it on right away, and it just felt like I was putting on golden armour. From that day forward, I just called it 'the golden armour', it just felt like there was something mystical and magical about it" - Kobe Bryant.
I don't believe in conspiracy theories, but I will say the league benefits greater, by having the Lakers in over Utah so while we may not be more deserving than Utah, the smart money is on the Lakers being in!
Too little too late. The Jazz will drop 2 more maybe, but own the tie and are 1/2 game up while we have NOH,@POR, GSW, SAS & HOU left. That means we can only lose 1 more if they drop 2. I don't believe SAS will rest against the possible first round opponent but it's possible.
So, fingers crossed but it's a tough task at hand.
