Pau took a dump on Dwight on both ends of the floor that year. It's definitely arguable that Pau should have won MVP that year. I don't necessarily agree, but I can see why people would make an argument. It is definitely debatable.

Kobe scored 32.4 ppg 5.6 rbnds 7.4 asts with 1.4 steals and 1.4 blocks.

The dude was unstoppable in the series no matter who they put on him. He was clearly the MVP.

Also, I'm sorry, but saying Dwight "single handedly destroyed Cleveland in the previous series" is very far from the truth. A lot of guys came up huge in that series, even Rafer Alston. Turkoglu was absolutely key, and same thing with Rashard Lewis.

Howard had a lot of foul trouble also, and Gortat did a decent job when Dwight had to sit down.

Sure, Dwight was the best player of that team, but he had some good company.

Somehow this team continues needing wake up calls? All the damn talent on this roster and they still can't bring it every night?

These next 5 games are either going to be a ton of fun or are going to be 4 blowout losses and 1 loss.

As much heat as everyone in the organization is taking, absolutely no one has got to feel worse about this mess of a season than the Buss family. You can assign blame anywhere you see fit but in the end someone paid 130 mil for this garbage season and that's the bottom line. As a fan, I can only hope that there is someone in that family with the common sense to see that Jim is running the franchise into the ground with his poor decision making. It certainly isn't going to be Jim who sees that and swallows his pride. Men like him go down with the ship or give up and cash out. Which I think will be the most likely future of this franchise. Eventually his mistakes/failures will be too much to overcome, even wish lush t.v. deals. Add in the predictable family infighting and bad PR and the Buss family will eventually give up and sell.

It's just all too rare that the children of visionary, trailblazing men have the same drive, work ethic, and hunger as their father who handed them the family fortune. We had a great run with Jerry Buss. An absolutely incredible run. Probably hoping and expecting too much to think Jim could carry on his father's legacy.

I don't think it is real actually because I never remember during the TNT broadcast that long of a silence between Reggie and Kevin talking where I could hear the fans clearly enough.

I was hearing people in the crowd yelling during the broadcast though, sometimes they sounded a lot like this guy in the video, so I assumed that they somehow edited out the broadcasters voices and amplified this guy. I assume that's possible with modern technology, no?

It actually is real. I was watching the game and clearly heared the guy heckling bonner during manu's FTs, he was very loud
I think blair was definitely laughing about that

I didn't know where to post this so I looked up this thread. Not sure why, what the occasion is, but NBA tv is showing the past decade Laker championship clinching games today. Earlier was game 6 2000, (didn't see if game 5 2001 was after that), right now is game 4 2002, next is game 5 2009, and finally game 7 2010 vs Celtics. Will be a fun look back at all our success this decade, has been so far. Looking forward to seeing Pau dominate Howard again, see Howard get stripped, miss free throws, etc, watched game 4 on NBA tv the other day and he had like 7 turnovers, bricked the 2 free throws that allowed Fisher to hit the 3 to send the game to OT.
