A little fore-shadowing, NO! The Lakers got there butts handed to them last night, of course, but I saw a little something different. Think about it. The teams hate each other, the Thunder just had 3 months of rest, and the Lakers just played 2 extra games than expected against the Nuggets. Of course this was the game that was going to be a blow out. Although I think the Thunder are a better team and have the best chance of making it out of the Western Conference this year, the Lakers are far from done. It really just depends on who shows up. Will Gasol play like an All Star or whine about being fouled with nobody within 3 feet from him like a 3 year old? Will Bynum forget that he can be dominate? Will Ron Artest (I will always call him Artest because Metta World Peace is idiotic) care more about winning than the attention being on him.
The Lakers will make this at least a 6 game series and I predict 7 if they can steal the next game in OKC. The next game will be much different than this one, you can rest assured Lakers fans that Kobe will not allow this team to take a day off…on game day…for game 2. They may do it again, but not for game 2.
Lakers, you looked like a dog that threw up on its own crap last night. You guys are better than that. I look forward to an awesome series moving forward.
