I’m watching San Antonio stomp the defenseless The Lakers in the Staples Center, 103-82. After The Lakers fell behind by 21 at the half, then Dwight Howard gets ejected early in the second half. The game was never really close.
In the second quarter, my son said “The Lakers have quit.” They sure did, as much as a team missing their starting backcourt trailing a series 0-3 could. Watching Dwight Howard descend into frustration was somewhat amusing. Friday night, he got pulled from a game after picking up an offensive foul, then he said something to Tim Duncan, who just laughed at him. If you watched this series at all, Duncan thoroughly abused Howard. I doubt Howard’s really seen a big that good in a best-of-seven series. As much as you’d expect him to take over and dominate, Duncan wouldn’t let him.
Being here in San Antonio, I got to listen to The Lakers homers on Fox Sports Radio. Those guys are pathetic. No one ever beats The Lakers, its always something else happening. Too funny, a team playing them in the same situation, its the breaks of the game. What makes me laugh out loud are the sports media douchebags like Chris Myers who insist San Antonio is boring, and The Lakers are exciting.
And how exciting were The Lakers? The “stars” sitting court side had fled the building before the 4th quarter. Exciting must mean getting mauled like a salmon scented fisherman in a grizzly bear sanctuary.
