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.
Blake has been the difference maker for us the last 5 games or so.... He's playing the best ball he's played since his Portland days. It seems that the added pressure of starting and picking up the slack left by Kobe is something he is thriving on.... Who Knew?....

He's really stepped up his game to a level I thought impossible for him. I'm glad we didn't move him last season, without him I don't think we'd have won these last couple of games. Please continue this awesome level of play in the post season White Snake!
Blake is playing ferocious and polished basketball. Hitting shots, Ding up and leading the offense. He is outplaying opposing PGs and making Nash look like he should retire. Blake is another potential hero in this series. He and Pau can have a lot to do with getting into the next round.
He played with tons of heart out there tonight. He's basically the only guard we have right now. Hopefully the hammy is ok. If it's not...YIKES! I don't want to imagine Morris starting in a NBA playoff game.
