Oklahoma City – Los Angeles

The Thunder have The Lakers at the precipice. The Thunder won tonight, 103-100, to go up 3-1 in games. If the Thunder close out The Lakers on Monday, they will have defeated the last two NBA champions enroute to the Western Conference championship round.

For The Lakers, their story isn’t much different from last year’s. Except this year’s version has one a game in the second round. Just our BSP observation but The Lakers are in huge need of a quality infusion on the bench. Also, Pau Gasol is trending downward. While Bynum is potentially a great player, he’s pretty immature.

Kobe has a lot of miles on him…bad miles. One thing is for sure: The Lakers never stand pat. Even this year, The Lakers tried to make a big move to get Chris Paul, but could not due to the NBA and owners like Dan Gilbert. The Lakers are going to make a move, and they’re going to do something big. They aren’t going to stand for a fail like this.

Mike Brown: He might get fired and he might not. One thing’s for sure, he was able to coax this flawed squad to at least one more playoff win than Phil Jackson did last year.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
