I don't mind these pick up that Mitch is getting. We have a great guard in Nash, and a new guy to come off the bench in Jamison, but the only problem I have with these guys is that there OLD. We need to have a solid bench and then we can possibly make it to the finals.

The team is definitely better than it was last year. Last years team should have been up 3-1 on OKC, and that's a team that went to the finals. While the Lakers aren't the favorites, they have a chance now. If they manage to pull off that Howard deal they would be the favorites. Although, since that's a trade in the rumors I'm not sure it will happen. Rumored Lakers trades never happen, lol. They're fun to speculate about though.

But the question is: can this new Laker team keep up the young and faster OKC? Seeing as how we have Nash now, maybe we will be able too.. I guess we're going to have to wait and find out.

I think OKC's speed is over rated, especially when it comes to the playoffs. Playoff basketball is more of a half court game. I don't expect Nash to d up Westbrook. Nash can't guard anybody anyhow, and nobody in the league stops down Westbrook. Durant will obviously get his too. It's just stopping the rest of them, which is totally possible. One of those games they lost by 2 points. Another was 3 points. I think Nash makes a 2-3 point difference.

This is very well thought out. The one thing that surprised me about the finals, were not the two teams who made it, because this was many people's prediction. The style of play from Miami completely surprised me.

I was under the impression that the scores would inflate because of the athleticism, and that it would be an undisciplined style of basketball.

Miami learned the half court game, and the thunder could not stop lebron, whether he was running, or posting up like a power forward.

The thunder are explosive, and rely too much on their explosiveness. They couldn't win with that style anymore. This is something that can take a while for them to master. "Winning ugly" is one of the things that comes to my mind, and mentioned by laker loved, lamar odom.

Yeah, I think both teams have their flaws. Of course it takes another really good team to expose them. OKC was a good match up for Miami because OKC doesn't have a big guy who can score down low. That allowed Miami to play small ball (not that Lebron and Bosh are all that small) and it allowed them to move the ball better. Those big guys on OKC weren't going to make a difference defensively, and if they can't make up for it offensively then it's not worth having them in the game. I don't see how a team like Miami could match up with LA in a 7 game series though. Gasol & Bynum can both score down low so they can't match up Bosh & James against those two. I actually think Artest can guard Lebron better than anyone on OKC too. It would be a tough series, but I think the Lakers have a better team. Of course with a guy like Howard it would really swing things in the Lakers favor. Howard should be jumping at the opportunity to come here. He lives out here in the summer already. He would more than likely win a championship. The fans here are some of the most loyal in the league. All that negativity around him right now would vanish, especially with a ring.
