Western Conference Final Reflections – 2010
• dEDGE Post Scriptum •
Steve Nash with the shiner. Phoenix with the bigger black eye after Game 1. Vanessa sporting the “Do I Look Legal” t-shirt, hmmm. Look-alikes: Robin Lopez and Sideshow Bob. LO daring Amar’e to play any defense. Kobe in Mamba-mode in the 3rd quarter. Charles Barkley: “The days of him carrying the team every game are over.” Shannon leapfrogging J-Rich on the throw-down attempt. Grant Hill scares me with his koo-koo eyes. Kobe drops 40 like loose change. Mr. Double-Double, 19 and 19. More Laker Girls.
Stoudemire claiming that Lamar was lucky. LO responding back, “I hope I’m lucky again.” What’s so wrong with LOS Lakers? It works for the LOSer Suns. Dragic taking down Joey Crawford with the leg sweep. The “We Want Boston” chant. Suns defense holds Lakers to only 124 in Game 2. Kobe’s got $1.30, or 13 dimes. Are the games supposed to get easier as we advance? Where ORNG happens… Stoudemire outlucks Lamar with 42/11. A good loss? I thought Brook was the better Lopez. Robin with the elbow bop on Fisher’s noggin. Nash readjusting his nose. The Lakers, readjusting their defense. Suns scorching hot from behind the arc. Channing Frye is no longer Stockard Channing. Bench points, Suns-54, Lakers-20, worse yet teams tied at 2-2.
The long, awaited return of the Pest. Alvin Gentry + deep fried avocados = throwing up on the bench. Dragic vs. Sasha, the Cold War II. D-Fish, coming up big again. Nash with 29/11, Kobe with 30/11/9. Artest shooting the 3 as Staples Center screams, “noooooooo.” J-Rich banking in the long-distance three. Ron-Ron with the redemption shot for the Game 5 win. Artest pick-pocketing Frye for the lay-in. Dragic with the Hollywood flop. Sasha assessed the Flagrant 1. Kobe’s love tap on Gentry’s ass, then extends his airplane wings on his way back to the bench. Coop presenting the WCF trophy. Sorry Phoenix, it ORNG happening here. Steve Nash feeling the pain in the locker room. No champagne, no celebration. 1-2-3-Ring.
