I hate the Los Angeles Lakers #106,
We knew at some point in the playoffs we would have to face the Lakers. Whether in the WCF, which is where I thought we were headed until the past few weeks, or in the second round after knocking out Houston. I'm not upset that we are playing the Lakers, I'm upset that we are playing them so soon and that my playoff experience this year will not be a month but closer to a week.
I think the best chance we have of beating the Lakers is in the first round before they are in playoff mode. I think that they are playing amazing basketball but not playoff basketball yet, it should take one game. We need to send them a message early something like this.
And this Four-Eyes
And a few of these...
And another one of these wouldn't hurt....
And who could do all of this for us..... Jaron Collins.
He has an expiring contract and a degree from Stanford, He will have no problem finding a job in this economy and if all works out well, he will be suspended for games 2 and 3 and could come back and do it again in game 4. Awesome. I'm Brilliant. I'm not joking either what do the Jazz have to lose by making the Lakers physically pay. Nothing. We already foul the most in the league and are considered the dirtiest team lets just live up to the hype and foul harder and dirtier. I have no problem with that especially if we win the series.
There is only one scenario in all of this Galaxy that the Utah Jazz win this series and even then its a long shot.
We have to win the series in six- Steal one at Staples, convince all 19000 people in the ESA not to sell their tickets to Lakers fans for 5 times as much in this economy, prove that ratings for a Utah over Houston three-peat series will be better than a Lakers Blazers series, Get only 10 phantom calls on Kobe Bryant instead of 20, convince Phil Jackson that the new Zen is Suicide, have Bill Simmons drop a story about how the NBA knew the Gasol trade was rigged and they didn't care making all players, pics, and money go back to their respective teams immediately, this Story would drop sometime tomorrow afternoon, Deron calls on his inner animal (which is a dragon that has ridiculous crossover skills), Boozer goes circa 2006 Houston game seven during the entire series, Ashton Kutcher dies for KK's sake, Jerry pulls out the "Let's do it for Larry" sign, the NBA jumps on board and signs the Disney movie contract early, David Stern realizes that everyone loves it when David beats Goliath especially when Goliath where's yellow, Jimmy sinks two 15 footers on his kids 18 inch basketball hoop, Bryce says "Mark my words", God decides that he really does care about sports and wants the Utah Jazz to win, Brendan "sells out"(never mind this already happened), T.J. realizes that he is not Urban, Jimmy adds a little optimism to Jazz passion,the Jazz play 4 games of ridiculously amazing basketball, David Archuleta and Thurl Bailey sing the Anthems at games 3 and 4, "the machine runs out of gas", word gets to Lamar Odom that he is not getting resigned, Jack Nicholson has a "Departed" situation in real life and the Jazz somehow outscore the Lakers in four of the seven games.
It really is us against the world.
Stay tuned for a player match-ups tomorrow, predictions early Sunday morning, and a live chat/feed during the game on Sunday.
