Coming back from the temple, looking at the half time score, 39-63, I still believed in a historic comeback. But after Artest missed the uncontested lay-up and no Laker tried to defend Mav’s three’s, hope for the three-peat started fading. Then very disappointed to see a couple Lakers lost their cool.
However, it’s been a great season (sans the Playoffs). In fact, looking back, it’s been four amazing years of Lakers basketball: 3 trips to the NBA Finals and 2 championships. Lakers fans are totally spoiled.
On likely the end of Phil Jackson’s career, 11 championships say it all. What a great run that brought so much excitement to all basketball fans!
You can experience a lot from watching sports and learn a lot from it – the competitiveness, the team work, the struggle before the triumph.
It seems summer is still far away from Vancouver, but once it comes, time for more basketball for me!
Looking forward to it all starting again in October!
