I admit I am bitter. Not about the Cavs losing but about the arrogance from the Kobe apostles and blind hatred for LeBron James. I'm not even a Cavs fan, Bulls fan first, just enjoy seeing such a great all around talent like LeBron play and the way these Kobe apostles act, he's a bum.

Do you think a healthy Luol Deng would have affected the outcome of the Celtics/Bulls series?

Well if you mean 100% healthy Deng, probably, might have been enough to win the series in 6. The problem is ever since Deng signed his contract extention, and we showed him the money, he went into the tank. So I've lost a lot of confidence in Deng. Speculation had it that he could have come back from that injury but didn't want to.

I find LeBron boring. I have nothing against him but this. Not entertaining, except his dunks or when he is totally on fire from everywhere on the court. I think he is a great player, but I don't like watching him (i.e.: his team) play.

I cannot enjoy boredom.

Lol Bruce didn't you say LA would lose to Denver?

I think Orlando will cause match-up problems but thank the lord up above that we have Odom who can come off the bench to neutralize and give us a PF in a SF's body like Shard for Orlando. It is also huge that Jameer isn't playing.

Let the players on the court do the talking.

I got to see your bulls courtside this year at staples (i'm not rich, i lucked into some tickets through my girlfriend's employer). I really like a bunch of your players. I wasn't sure about Vinnie Del to be honest but that playoff series looked like maybe they figured something out. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the off season. Keep Hinrich?

THe celtics and Cavs didnt have an answer for 6-10 shooters who are dangerous from 3. Having a 6'5 Ray Allen or 6'3 West try to close out on those guys was a big disadvantage.

The Lakers have long athletic players in Odom(6 10) and Ariza(6'8 with long arms)

The lakers have 3 point attacks, and athletes...something boston and cleveland dont have collectively

Lakers in 6.

Dwight will manhandle the Lakers front line. Kendrick Perkins is miles ahead of Andrew Bynum defensively.

We had perkins and that was it.

Cavs have a very slow Z and an Undersized Wallace with a Varejau who is not strong enough.

Lakers have athletic Bigmen who will take Howard out the box area.

Seriously i dont care for either team, but the lakers have the perfect mix to beat the Magic in 6 games.

Bynum is playing through an injury, so it will be Gasol who plays Dwight. I don't think Gasol will have any problems. Gasol is taller and has a jumpshot. Dwight does NOT have a jumpshot and cannot shoot over the taller Gasol.

It sucks that Odom, Ariza, Kobe, and Bynum is injured, yet Lakers are still favored to win it all.

If the Lakers decide to play like they played last night they have a way better chance than the Cavs.
