Tomorrow is going to tell alot about Kobe Bryant the leader, the basketball player, the likely MVP for this season. I want to see how much he has matured by how he comes out and plays the game.

Will he come out PASSIVE, playing the facilitator role and basically thinking that the Lakers can afford to give this game away (as he did in Game 5 vs Phoenix in 2006).......OR will Kobe come out AGGRESSIVE, looking to sink the dagger in Denver's heart and send a message to the other teams in the playoffs.

The 1st quarter should be very interesting.....especially Kobe's mood, mentality, approach and style of play. LeBron came out with a purpose today for his team. Will Kobe do the same.....or just mail it in tomorrow?

I expect to see a hard game played by the Nuggets. No easy baskets this time.

I been dissapointed in this series, w/ that said, the Lakers bench players built their confidence, so they will come out by launching threes, if they make them, it would be a blow out. If they get trigger happy and keep missing, Denver will prob take it. Kobe prob not going to play any defense, he only plays defense in the game that really matters.

Sweeping a 50-win team is almost unheard of. I don't think it's EVER happened in the first round. That said, I think the Lakers will try their best to finish it. They didn't play great in gm3. Denver just sucked.

LA's best > Denver's best so hopefully we see both teams at their best..

The spurs didn't sweep the suns, but does that mean they don't have the ability to contend for a title?

I only hope that Norm Nixon is not correct in his thinking that if the Nuggets get down and it looks like they are gonna lose that they will try to intentionally hurt one of our players.

I wouldn't think AI or Melo would do anything like that. However I would not put it past Martin or Smith.

I saw on ESPN News that they said Coach Geroge Karl will be coach for Nuggets again next season. Which is suck for Nuggets as the whole team cause they won't improvement anything at all.

Its not so much the coach's fault as it is the players who admitted they quit in game 3...I have a feeling Denver will take this one and LA will eliminate them in game 5 instead.
Either way, lets finish this and get ready for Utah

You're an Idiot.

You've been saying Denver will win since game 1.
