    Gasol has defended Howard better than anyone in these playoffs. his scored, rebounded and defended well. give him some credit. Lakers would be nowhere without Gasol.

    Like I said earlier, the Lakers match up great with Orlando.

    The Magic do not have any great post defenders. Dwight is better coming off his man to black shots.
    Gasol isn't even playing great and he is exposing this.

    And the Lakers can match the Magic athletically up front.

    But again, the Magic live and die with that 3...they were shooting it at an unheard of level, and now they have completely cooled off.

    They are finished...stick a fork in em.

    They had their run and it was in the Conference Finals. They couldnt ride that wave...its fleeting.

    Dwight shot 70 percent from the FT line against cavs, compared to 60 against the Lakers and 54 against the Celtic.

    Turk shot 85 percent against the Cavs and is down to 70 now and not to mention the choke job in game 4.


    THey were on fire. Give em credit, but they thought that they could just turn it on like that.
    Unfortunately for them, basketball, more than any other game is about streaks.

    IMO Dwight has had a horrible, horrible finals. Hes looked amateur. Hes always talking about how he wants to be "a great", man, hes young still but come on dude, why are you saying that stuff.

    ^horrible finals?

    he set the finals record for blocks last game and had like 20 rebounds. and some decent points.



    and i think van gundy fucked up in the first place throwing nelson in there. i dont care if he killed the lakers during the reg. season. you miss 6 months your going to have some rust that is going to take a while to get off.

    the magic were on a roll and throwing him in there changed the dynamic. and its not that they are shooting worse; which they are; but its that they are playing differently. nelson is more of a drive the lane and create himself player, where before it was dump it in to dwight and back out and just work it around until they find the open guy and just hit the 3.
    The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.

    People are too stupid to effectively conspire to do anything, but not too stupid to come up with conspiracy theories.

    no...its more of the fact that, yes they arent shooting the 3 as well, but they are not hitting their FT's as well and Rafer Alston and Pietrus are playing the way they usually do....inconsistently, instead of both being on fire every game. Same with Lee.

    The Magic roleplayers came back down to Earth, and now the Laker role players like Ariza are playing great.

    The highs and lows of the NBA...gotta love it.

    you gotta take into account the fact that the Lakers are the best team in the NBA. Orlando are getting beat by the better team, LA have no major weakness. Orlando jus lack a legit PF and the experience to make play toe to toe with the Lakers.

    I think the Lakers have weaknesses, and a better, more physical defensive team would give them problems.

    Just like the Celtics did last year.

    Orlando's defense is awful....LeBron did whatever the fuck he wanted against them. Look at the numbers.
    Kobe is doing the same thing.

    Plus it helps that Odom and Ariza have played at high levels this series and Bynum has played well.
    Look eye, always look eye.
