Yeah the playoffs have been disappointing so far. ...I expected them to get better in the conference finals. ...In particular I expected ORL-BOS to be much closer than it has been. ...But sadly the conference finals have just followed the same path as the playoffs prior.

After watching the first 3 games there was no way back
however the Magic have some how pulled themselves right back
into it, Game 6 on fri is going to be like a game 7.

Without Perkins and possibly Big Baby Howard should dominate game 6. I think the Celtics have a better chance in game 7 even though they're away.
Hope the Suns hand it to the Lakers tonight. Their bench is amazing.

My guess is that both technical fouls will be rescinded.

One was and that's enough. Expect Celtics to close it out Friday night now.

It was just too big a mountain for the Magic to climb after going down 3-0. The Celtics played great in that series. Good luck to them in the finals.

I think last night proves that Lebron James is not the best player in the nba. He's not in Kobe's league.

Kobe is far better than LeBron.

LeBron can make some tough shoots, sure, but not like Kobe. LeBron's game is based mostly on how big he is. He plows through you attacking the basket.

Kobe is a more complete player. Dribbles better, passes better, shoots better.

Are you serious? Could you imagine LeBron with Kobe's teammates? LeBron has absolutely carried scrubs like Mo Williams, West, 100 year old Shaq, aging A.Jamison. Not to mention playing in Mike Brown's "Everyone get out of the way while LBJ goes 1 on 5" offense. The only edge Kobe has is wins, but he's had the benefit of Shaq, Phil, Gasol, Odom, Bynum etc in his career.

LBJ is far more talented and a much bigger mismatch for opposing teams,
However he is not even close to Kobe when it comes to mental toughness
and hunger, Plus Kobe is more of team player these days where as LBJ is
more like the Kobe of 4-5 years ago, I am sure the penny will eventually drop
with LBJ and that he will have a legacy picking up multiple rings but he may
need to find a partner in crime like Kobe got with Gasol for that to happen.
