I would'nt be surprised if every game the Lakers play up until the finals ends up a 6 or 7 games series.

Thunder in the WCF is their only true obstacle. They might be able to slow down LA's frontline and Russ will score a lot because the Lakers don't even try to stop athletic pg's.

If new orleans goes up 3-2, watch out. Don't get overconfident. the lakers are far from a healthy team, and many of their players are out of their athletic primes.

Especially now that Caron Butler has been cleared for full contact play. Give him a week or two of practice at full contact, and his wind and confidence should be around 85%

Phil wants his last run to be exciting so he's letting every series go to seven games. Only expect the switch to be on 4/7 of the time lol.
