  Let the Game 7 talk begin


los angeles lakersThe Lakers won Game 6 of the NBA Finals 89-67. It was a dominant performance by Los Angeles who opened up a 20 point lead during the 2nd quarter.

So for the next 48 hours all were going to hear about is what a sure thing it is that the Lakers are going to win the championship. No one has won a Game 7 in the NBA Finals on the road since 1978. Boston is old, and their coming off of one of their worst performances of the year.

boston celticsI can’t make a case for Boston, or at least not a good one. If I were forced to choose, I would pick the Lakers. But there’s recent history to suggest that we should ignore all the hype that’s coming. In Superbowl XLII the New England Patriots were 18-0 and facing a New York Giants team that had already lost 6 games during the year and couldn’t finish the season strongly. In 2006, I remember hearing all about how USC was one of the greatest football teams in college football history before they lost the National Championship Game. All the while their Championship Game opponent Texas was tearing up the college football world at the same time. I just knew that the hype was going overboard and sure enough Vince Young tore them apart passing and running. If I were forced to choose, I’d pick the Lakers but my best guess is that this will be a great, close game.
