in truth I believe only OKC from wc can beat the lakers and I'd give them about a 40% chance.


But I'll still root for them to lose in every round!

The chances are less great. Kobe looks like he is a wrapped up mummy and looks a lot less dominant.

Pretty much. They have the talent, they have all the pieces they need to do it. It's just a matter of can they overcome the Lakers poise and veteran experience. I tend to think that they would be a lot more motivated for that series than they would against New Orleans and Dallas.

I'd like to point out the same was said last year after a very average first round performance. Kobe isn't the same as he was 10 years ago but he's still very dominant. You don't have to take my word for it, he'll prove all the doubters wrong again soon.
