I'm against the Lakers too, but it's not their fault. I always root for the underdog if I don't have a preference. I do, however, have a dislike of Kobe. He is NOT the best player in the league. Just because he can hit shots at key points means nothing. If he would hit a few shots in the first half, too, then I'd consider him one of the best. People don't realize that just because he can make the most acrobatic shots once in a while, a quick jumper from 10 feet out counts just the same and is much easier to make. A dunk in the last 5 minutes of the game while mounting a comeback is just as helpful as making a couple free-throws in the first quarter. Give me T-Mac or KG any day of the week.

My objective view is that the Pistons lost the series with that brain fart in game 2. There is no way that they will win 3 in a row at home. IMHO, the Lakers win in 7. I hope that I am wrong because I really want the Pistons, though.
I actually watched the first half of the game, it was the first NBA action I have watched since the first week of the season. That was almost as exciting as watching ESPN championship Ping Pong. They should follow the NHL's lead and have a lockout next season just to see if anyone will notice.
My prediction, Pistons in 7 winning by on LA's homecourt by putting the fans to sleep.

I am all for defense and slow pace games, but constant, unforced turnovers and poor shooting is just not interesting in the pro game. I'll wait for the NCAA season to roll around to watch an 80-70 game.
