    Wow! What a series so far. The Lakers just don't seem to be stepping up to the plate this year. Looks like there might not be a 4-peat. Nothing would please me more than to watch the Spurs take the Lakers down. It would be sweet revenge after the last couple years.

    BTW: For those who don't know, right now the Spurs are winning 2-0 against the Lakers. They play their next game in LA on Friday.

    And nothing would please me more than watching the Kings stick it to the Lakers. After the last couple of years, it feels as though even if the Kings go all the way, if they don't beat the Lakers then it wouldn't really "count".

    But even with all that, I can't say I'm really rooting for the Lakers to make it past this round. The Spurs are kicking LA's ass, and good for them!

    I would be happy if Sacramento went all the way. They deserve it! I'm a Spurs fan but I also like Sacramento because they have some real good players.

    Spurs or Kings, doesn't matter. As long as its NOT the Lakers.

    I was tuned in last night as well. When the Spurs went up by 33 at one point we were all dancing a jig at our house. That was one totally awesome performance to watch if you were a Spurs fan. A real team effort.

    The Lakers are going to have a hard time getting past round 2 with Fox and George out with injuries and now what looked like a half speed Kobe Bryant thrown in to boot.

    4peat No Way!

    Go Lakers! Phooey on the 2 games in San Antonio. Real team shows up tomorrow night! I hope.....:) Series has literally stunk so far. I couldn't even watch last night's game and we had a party. We (mostly I) listened to Wild/Canucks game instead. Lakers now in 7..

    Usually, when a team wins the first game of a seven game series, that team ends up winning the series.

    It's even more rare for a team to come back from a 3-0 deficit and win four games in a row. Correction: No team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a series.

    And yeowch, paybacks a *****. Sacramento trounces Dallas in game one, Dallas trounces Sacramento in game two, and games three and four are on Saturday and Sunday in Sacramento. And two of the key Kings are injured.

    Of course they did... You didn't think we would let you beat them. We also made sure that Chris Webber would be out for the next series and the Lakers own the Mavs. My plan worked perfectly.

    Was it also your idea for the Kings/Mavs to play back-to-back games at Arco this weekend?

    See you are understanding how I work. Now I just have to get the Knicks the first pick in the draft and my plan is done....

    We appreciate you routing for lesser teams, but we really don't need you.

    To help with the new franchise in North Carolina.

    See I told you I'd work it out. Now I just have to get some better players on the Lakers and Knicks.... Maybe Karl Malone and Elton Brand on the Lakers and Tim Duncan and Lamar Odom on the Knicks to go along with their first pick in the draft. I think they should pick Carmelo Anthony since he is known by the NY'ers...

    Hey commish -

    Are you too busy to register at the site? :)
    Who's going to win the Dallas series and why?
    What teams in the East is the commish looking to improve soon to compete with the West in 2004?
    Do the Lakers win Tuesday night to win it all on ABC Thursday or does the NBA need a game 7 on Saturday?

    Well we at the NBA don't really care. We made sure Chris Webber was done so he couldn't carry the series on his own and we like the way its gone so far. Either team sets up well for the Lakers match-up and thats the way we like it.
    Well we like the Knicks. That's going to be a total gut job, but we feel though the draft and free agency we can take care of that one. We also like the Pistons and Celtics doing well. We have kept the Nets going because of our trouble with our NY franchise, but now that we will take care of the Knicks, the Nets will fade back to clipper level.
    We of course would like to wrap the game up on ABC to get a national audience, but we do like a 7th game to increase revenue. We do not expect the series to go to a 7th game though and would love to end it in LA in front of LA fans.

    But, Mr. Stern, wasn't the ratings higher for the Kings-Lakers series last year than the Lakers-Nets series?

    Very true, which is why we believe we need to "fix' the Knicks franchise. No one here at the NBA think anyone in the east can beat the top 6 teams in the west. This is why I must fix the Knicks and restore the finals to the place it should. People watched the Lakers-Kings last year because they knew it was going to be a good series even though we at the NBA were making sure the Kings wouldn't win. Now no one including those in New Jersey even though that the Nets would win more than one game.

    My goal is to make sure the Knicks, Pistons or Celtics are champs in the East next year and that the Lakers will be able to go for their 5th championship in a row. What I'd like to see is that fifth come with the Knicks and then we can let the Lakers fall back to the pack out west and let the Rockets or Suns rise to lose to a East Coast team in 2005.
