In spite of what can only be described as one of the worst meltdowns in NBA playoffs history, I'm still cheering for The Lakers. I've been a Laker fan for over 15 years. From the days growing up in The Bahamas when we only had one TV channel and on that channel we had no choice but to watch Laker games because that's what they showed!!

The reason for that was because Mychal Thompson, a Bahamian, played for the Lakers back then and then years later, another Bahamian, Rick Fox also played for them and so pretty much every Bahamian you meet will inherently be a Laker fan. Plus who didn't love Magic and Kareem and Worthy?

Suffice to say, the game tonight wore me out. First I was overly excited because the lead was so large. I mean who could ever expect that a 24 point lead is not going to be enough. We have Kobe, Vujacic, Odom, Fisher. Isn't 24 enough??? So then once the lead started to dwindle, I think I wore myself out running up and down this apartment. I basically did a 2nd workout. So now I'm tired and drained and really need to go to sleep. I need to rest up 'cause now we have a whole lot of work to do come Sunday. It's going to be an uphill battle but I'm keeping the faith!!

I know a lot of people don't like them but I'm sorry I'm a Laker for life. GO LAKERS!!!

Well you can cheer one more time... The lakers will win on sunday... it doesnt make sense to end the series that early when the NBA is getting so much press right now... yeah the NBA is rigged and all about the good story...

but then Boston will win the first game back in boston on tuesday and the story will be complete.

Sorry Jackie... but after the lakers lost that game last night after being up twenty something points... its a wrap for them.

Well you already know how THIS scenario panned out! I guess the good ol' Lakers didn't take the Celtics seriously.
