Fancap: Revenge is a Dish Best Served Purple and Gold

Last night’s win felt so good, like a weight was lifted off the Lakers’ shoulders.  They came back from 15 down at one point in the most hostile environment they will ever play in and beat a really good team.  I know that the O’Neals were not playing, but it’s not like Shaq had a great game a couple weeks ago. I think we proved that we can compete with their size no matter who is in there, and that we still have some mental toughness and fortitude. Andrew Bynum put it best after the game: “It’s always fun to beat Boston”. I completely agree.

At the end of the season, I think Lakers fans will look back at this current roadtrip as a turning point in the journey to a third title.  The Lakers are now 3-0, including a quality win against their arch nemesis, with the opportunity to win in New York and Orlando as well.  It’s happening already, but going 7-0 or even 6-1 on the Grammy’s Trip will quiet a lot of the trade chatter and media speculation about whether the Lakers still have what it takes to be elite. Everyone forgets we’re still 5th in the NBA, and like it or not, the Lakers don’t consider the season truly started until April.  NBA opponents, you have been warned.
