Lakers-Spurs

May 20, 2008


So tonight after finishing up at the gym I get home turn on ESPN and sit through the lottery. The winner of the losers was the one team that didn't seem to need the help, the Chicago Bulls. Tip to the NBA, whenever you have Jay Z in the room, do your best and try to get him in a rap battle. I mean you have Fred Hoiberg there, you know with out a doubt he can spit and after all his nickname was the Mayor.Maybe Hoiberg could even go out with the moniker B-Rabbit. After that borefest was over, another followed, Eastern Conference Championships. I know, I know, I just don't appreciate good defense. But I would much rather watch a game where the teams can hit shots outside of 20 feet and play D without elbows to the ribs. Thankfully my cure for boring east coast ball happens Wednesday night on TNT (thank Jeebus), when the Spurs(They have Timmy, great team that plays defense and can get the ball in the hoop in various fashions) and the Lakers(Kobe healthy, they are 5-0 at home and 3-2 on the road, play great team D and pass better then any other team not named the Spurs)match up in game one of the Western Conference Finals at Staples Center. This series can go any number of ways, both teams are capable of sweeping, but most likely this series will go to 6 or 7 seven games. I want to be biased and say Lakers in 5, but I cant due to the fact that I am just not that optimistic. Well I decided to put a couple clips up of past playoff games between these two powers.
I could not put a video up on here and not include the best playoff game winning shot in recent history.





Here is the Memorial Day game from 1999, when the Spurs finished the sweep, and the Lakers lost their last game at the Forum.(warning long clip)





The last clip is Shaq running the floor to finish the fast break after his own rebound.





And remember friends it is not purple and yellow it is forum blue and championship gold.
