Nothing Else Matters – Just Win

Since this is the biggest game of the season, you have to expect the biggest players to show up. Guys like Kobe Bryant, Paul Pierce,

June 15, 2010 - Los Angeles, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES - epa02204206 Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant during a play against the Boston Celtics during the first half of game six of the NBA Finals at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, USA, 15 June 2010. The Celtics lead the series 3-2.

Pau Gasol, and Kevin Garnett are going to have impacts on the game you would have to believe. The key will be the role players and supporting cast for each squad. Will either team feature players trying to do too much with the basketball? Will that result in turnovers or missed opportunities? In a game where emotion and pressure is off the charts, it is the team that best deals with the scenario that will have the advantage.

Overall I would really have a hard time picking a favorite to win this game. It feels a lot like the beginning of the series, where the Lakers won Game 1 convincingly and were on the fast track to another NBA title before Boston bounced back to win Game 2 in Staples Center. However, when in doubt look for obscure facts and statistics to push the answer you want to give – So far during these playoffs the Los Angeles Lakers have never lost when wearing their golden home uniforms. On Thursday night, Kobe and Co. will put on the gold for the last time this season. Let’s hope it helps them bring home the gold as well.
