Ok, here’s the thing, I hate the Lakers. Truth be told, I hate Denver even more. The first round series that just wrapped up between L.A. and Denver has been a battle of two evils for me. The only redeeming factor is Kellan now owns me one U.S. dollar, a buck, a greenback, some scrill! Finally one of my rediculous predictions/bets have finally paid off!
The Lakers took care of the Nuggets in Denver last night, in what was game four of the first round of the western conference playoffs. The Nuggets really never seemed to show up to play against Kobe. Kobe did. He averaged 33.5 points per game, shooting exactly 50% from the field at 48-96 shots, and getting 6.3 assists along the way. I do have a bit of a problem with how Mr. Bryant conducts himself on the court, especially during the playoffs. There are many players in the association that have learned to flop with the best of them, and the best of them seems to be Kobe himself. Kobe has taken the flop to new heigths and his ability to whine at the refs is not unlike Larry Bird’s ability from “back-in-the-day.” In the last half of game four, I lost count after 18 or so flops that Kobe took. Now, I’m not saying he wasn’t getting fouled, but after his arms are thrown into the air for the thousandth time, it really starts to get old.
But aside from making this post a rant about what a little whiney @#%$& Kobe is, or how much I dislike the Denver Nuggets (well Denver in general), the most important thing about this post is that Kellan owns me money. So, no one in the west had a snowball’s chance to sweep in the playoffs this year. The west is just too strong and no team will let the other team run away with the home games. Well Kellan, you were wrong. More then anything else this is a moral victory for me. The Pats didn’t lose to Maimi, the Bulls didn’t win the finals this year (let alone make it to the playoffs), and the Blazers did make it to 500 when I said they wouldn’t. Now I realize that most people might find this win as a small one, but bragging rights are bragging right, and Kellan doesn’t get to have them for once!
In your face, how you like them apples, whaz up now, suck it, oh burn, and simply HA!
