Sweeping Generalizations Made Off 48 Minutes of NBA Basketball

Lastly, how good is it to be a Lakers fan?

I mean, really? I don’t think I did anything more than subtle fist pump when Blake hit the go-ahead three as time wound down. I really didn’t. It’s just something that I expected at the time. There was never a doubt in my mind that the Lakers were winning that game, and everybody on that court knew it–even the team in red.

The Lakers have been on a remarkable run these last few years–and while history gives us no indication the Lakers will ever slow down–it’s important that we as fans take a time to really soak in this golden era.

That said, I think I’m going to take the Los Angeles Lakers to defeat the Boston Celtics in six games for the 2010-2011 NBA Title.
