Top Five Wacky Reasons the Lakers had no chance!

June 14th, 2008 – Dr. Dime I predicted the Celtics to win this series before it began. To be quite honest I think they have a stronger team dynamic, more heart, and far superior defense.

NBA Finals 2008: Show Ray Allen the Love; Irony for Allen and Garnett

June 13, 2008 – Dr. J-Water When the NBA Finals began I stated that the key to this series was whether or not Kobe Bryant could defend Ray Allen. As Game 4 is now in the books and the Celtics are leading the Lakers 3-1, I guess the answer is no. I received multiple emails [...]

NBA Finals 2008: Game 4 – Lakers have Stunning Collapse; Ray Allen is my MVP!

June 12th, 2008 – Dr. Anklesnap If someone told me this morning that the Los Angeles Lakers would be up by as many as 24 on the Boston Celtics in the first half of Game 4, I would laugh and say “quit playin”! If they then added to that statement that Kobe Bryant at half [...]

NBA Finals 2008: Game 4 Preview – Can Paul Pierce shake Kobe Bryant’s Defense?

June 12, 2008 – Dr. Browntorious If any of you caught Wednesday night’s game, you would have seen something you’ve seen all year long, but didn’t see in Game 1 or 2 of this series. For one, you had good old Jack sitting in his usual courtside seats cheering away. Second, you saw the fans [...]

NBA Finals 2008: Game 3 – Lakers make adjustments, Kobe attacks the rim

  June 10th, 2008 – Dr. Dime Kobe Bryant and company need to attack the rim more. Check. Kobe came out to start this game with one intention in mind.

NBA Finals 2008: Game 3 Preview – ‘There’s No Place like Home’

June 10th, 2008 – Dr. Browntorious The Staples Center will be an overwhelmingly welcome sight for the Los Angeles Lakers tonight.

NBA Finals 2008: Game 2 Preview – Questions need Answers

June 7, 2008 – Dr. Browntorious If there is one lesson that could be pressed upon us as soon as this Sunday, it’s that it may not be wise to taunt, prod, and ridicule a competitor as fierce and potent as Kobe Bryant. The “Black Mamba” is probably the fiercest competitor the NBA has seen [...]

NBA Finals 2008: Game 1 – “Big Three” don’t disappoint, Kobe ineffective

June 6th, 2008 – Dr. Anklesnap What a rollercoaster of a game! Game 1 of the NBA Finals did not disappoint. I was concerned that after all of the hype leading up to this match-up of the LA Lakers and Boston Celtics, Game 1 of the renewed rivalry would be a let down. Everyone knows [...]
