Some questions and random thoughts for the Lakers, Magic and the league next year…
Andrew Bynum was the one to blame during the 08 Finals when the Lakers lost to the Celtics. This season Bynum averaged 17.4 minutes a game and only 6.3 PPG and 3.7 REB. The potential for him to put the Lakers into a bracket unmatched with any team in the league is there, all we can do now is wait to see what happens next year.
Cleveland is looking to make a trade for Shaquille O’Neal to team up with Ilgauskas to get their own version of the ‘Twin-Tower’ effect.
Kevin Garnett coming back healthy to the previous champion and the Lakers arch-enemy Boston Celtics. Two-peat anybody? (Ed. Defending the title next year will never be harder for any team.)
The season has officially ended and Hedo is already talking business. Hedo’s agent has already said that Hedo will be opting out this up-coming season. The 30 year old is in the final year of a six year contract and is expected to make 7.36 million. Hedo is probably looking for about a five year contract at about 12 million per year I would assume.
Dwight Howard needs to work on his offensive post game, this man has less moves than a geek on the dance floor. Patrick Ewing here is where you come in, they extended your contract.. now do something with it. With his team facing elimination the rock of the team was limited to 11 points and 10 rebounds. Not acceptable.(Ed. But who is going to teach him tow in championships?)
Marcin Gortat is a free agent as well for the Magic. Expect him to get overpaid. Compliments go to him for not bending over for Reebok after they told him to cover up that Jordan tattoo on his leg. More Polska Power to him.
“And he wanted us to believe that he didn’t want to win one without Shaq? He never jumped that high when they won the last three times.” — Charles Barkley
What team is going to offer Lamar Odom and Trevor Ariza top contracts? Will the Lakers be able to match? (Ed. Come on Glenn….)
Does anyone remember what Kevin Garnett said just not too long ago. He personally guaranteed Celtic championships in 2010 and 2011. How does Kobe, and the rest of the league feel about that?
I just read that some crazed fans in LA messed up a cop car after celebrating their championship win. Unfortunately Shaq isn’t there to pay for it like last time.. but will Kobe?
After watching Kobe win the championship, LeBron immediately went AWOL and we haven’t heard from him since (Ed. LeBron’s been awol since the day he didn’t apologize for not shaking hands… fucking douchebag) .
Dwight’s on the NBA Live cover, Kobe’s on the 2k10 series. ‘Nuff said for anyone who actually plays basketball video games.. for those who don’t, the 2k series is much better and has been for quite a while… so it’s only right to have the best player in the league and MVP of the finals on their cover…. Dwight’s team is 2nd best.. and so is the game.
How upset is Alston for sitting in the fourth in game 5’s elimination game.. better yet how mad is Anthony Johnson for not even playing one minute of the series? (Ed. He pissed off the coach, I bet they’re both gone after this year)
-Sasha Vujacic didn’t make one shot this entire series, it’s safe to say we don’t need him anymore. (Ed. You may not need him; but you owe him 10.5 mil over the next 2 years)
