Sports Recap: Playoffs For Three! (and some...)


NBA PLAYOFFS

How many times can I be wrong about the Spurs? The answer is twice! The Lakers will beat the Spurs in six because no one can stop Kobe Bryant (I know I've said this a thousand times already but it still holds true.) Yes, Bruce Bowen is a phenomenal defender but great offense beats great defense more oft than not. Besides, the Lakers are more than just Kobe. Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom in the front court make for some pretty passes in the low post.

LAKERS OVER SPURS IN 6


Is it me or does it seem like the Celtics are getting drugged when they leave Boston? Here's my boldest prediciton to date. The Celtics will win a game on the road. GASP! Also, if anyone has a spare VHS tape of He Got Game can they please lend it to Ray Allen in hopes that he remembers how to shoot.
CELTICS OVER PISTONS IN 6

So far I am 9-3 in the prediction department. 75 percent is OK, but i'm hoping for a 3-0 finish with the Lakers beating the Celtics in the NBA dream finals.

MLB BASEBALL
Alex Rodriguez (man crush) is back and hitting for the Yanks. Two games, two homers, and two doubles. But of course, you can't please everyone all the time. In Alex's case, you can't please any New York sportswriter anytime for any reason. In his first game back, Alex hit a homerun in a 12-2 loss to the Orioles and smatters of "meaningless homeruns" already began. The score was 9-0 before the Yankees got to bat. As Max Kellerman aptly put it, "Maybe he should've hit it before the game started." Calm down Yankee fans!

i picked lakers in 7 over the suns. well since its the spurs i think they can do it in 6 as well. they wont lose the series tho. no way. gasol tastes that championship for the first time. and kobe is... kobe.

im picking boston in 7. detroit is too good of a team and i will not be surpised if boston loses in 7.

either way i have $30 on lakers winning championship over boston. (if that matchup happens). And i got $10 on boston over detroit.

sidenote: damn you suns for ruining my almost perfect bracket. guess we'll never see nash vs paul =*(
