I don’t know what I hope happens more, the Suns getting a win tonight or this series just ending so I do not have to watch more of the Lakers than necessary. I find the Lakers incredibly boring. Kobe is great, one of the best players of all time, but he only turns it on if he has to. And so far in these playoffs he has not had to often enough.
The problem with the Lakers is that Gasol and Odom are so long and talented the team can cruise to victories. But, both players disappeared in the Finals two years ago against Boston. I would love to see the Lakers get to the Finals, mainly because I feel that outcome is inevitable especially after another boring double digit victory tonight, than get pounded by the Celtics again.
Maybe this is a problem I have with LA, or more likely their fans. The Laker fans feel like the NBA equivelant of the Cowboy fans. Or maybe I just find them boring to watch as a team. I hate watching any of their guards outside of Kobe, I hate watching their really tall front line succeed mainly due to height without any semblance of toughness.
Whatever it is I am not sure but I really do find LA boring.
