I think Kevin Garnett‘s taunting is classless. I bet he doesn’t taunt like that when he was losing in Minnesota. Having said that, I like how Jose Calderon fought back – now, that was class to the highest degree.
I like this piece about the Lakers response to physical play. Having said that, I don’t know why almost everybody is jumping on the Lakers bandwagon. They’re good, yes, but they still haven’t had a lot of road games and still haven’t played a top caliber team (with complete significant players) like the Celtics, Hornets, Pistons and let’s put in the Suns. About twenty more games, and we’ll see.
I don’t blame them though. On paper, the Lakers are a beast and sports betting people love them. They should dominate the regular season. In the playoffs, though, physical and mental toughness is up a whole new level. I guess in the playoffs, it doesn’t matter which seed you are. Everybody is capable of pulling an upset, just ask the 1999 New York Knicks.
Can’t you tell I’m doing a reverse jinx? Damn you Bill Simmons!
