I'm not so sure this changed much, but it didn't help Denver in last night's shellacking at the hands of the Lakers. Nene broke his arm in the fourth quarter. I'll go ahead and make the joke…
… hey Nene… if you didn't hack the crap out of everyone every chance you got, maybe you wouldn't have broken your arm.
Now that I think about it.. I'm going to amend my first line. It wouldn't have changed anything last night. Denver never really answered the bell in the elimination game… and every time they tried to make a run in the 4th quarter, Kobe stepped up and put an end to that.
So now the Lakers are in. The question is… do I continue to root for Orlando so I don't have to hear that damn "Kobe vs. Lebron" hype any more… or do I root for Cleveland because they have a better chance at beating LA.
Overhyped or not… I need the Lakers to lose. LA would have to face a team with Satan and resurrected Hitler for me to root FOR the Lakers… and even then I'd have to think about it.
