    Timmy’s now tied with Kobe, Fish, Magic, Mikan. Good company there.
    It’s nice to see a team with such class win the title when our Lakers aren’t there.

    What Lakers Nation should discuss, or bring up, in the week of review are the relevant items that came about from the Championship loss by the Heat, and the win by the Spurs.

    - how LeBron, touted as the next MJ, was unable to carry his team to a Championship. This is after summarily dismissing Kobe as the player who took over the torch after MJ, and how the media crowned LBJ the self-appointed King for eternity, and how there was never a player as great as LBJ.

    - how the media (ESPN and TNT) and their major players mysteriously vanished as the Finals progressed, and it looked like the Heat were going to lose. How much egg can be on their face after just ignoring (and bypassing) the greatness of Kobe in favor of a player who just isn’t as talented as Kobe.

    - how Tim Duncan is now tied with Kobe for rings, and how Kobe could have possibly earned more rings under more favorable conditions over the years.

    -how great a team the Lakers were, 2000-2004, with enough juice to 3-peat, and how hard it was to 4-peat, and even 5-peat. The Spurs have never 2-peated, and the Heat have never (and won’t ever) 3-peat.

    - how rare and lucky we were, at Lakers Nation, to have someone like Kobe who is truly a basketball great, be part of one of the greatest decades in basketball with our Lakers.

    - how the ‘superstar era’ is coming to a close, and we’re in for a few challenging years of league parity (= league mediocrity).

    - how the Lakers ‘now’ have a chance to do something, and if the FO doesn’t do anything stupid, then we could have a good team hopefully soon.

      Amen to that! The basketball porn of the Spurs have just made me despise the MDA style of play even more (if it’s possible). Spurs showed us true team ball, sacrifice and commitment to D. And most of all: CONSISTENCY. Even my beloved Lakers never came close to this during their latest championships. Great talent and uh..KOBE saved us. We have a unique chance to build a TEAM now, but I’m pretty sure Jimbo Puss will fuck this opportunity up. Congrats to the Spurs. Guess they’re not thinking too much about Fish’s 0.4 right now… :-)

      I was really split over who i wanted to win the Finals. On one hand, If the Heat win they would have become only the 4th Franchise to 3-peat, which increases Lebron’s legacy, on the other hand if the Spurs win then it vaults Duncan into serious contention for the greatest player of his generation (which was seemingly unanimously Kobe before the Spurs won). Now they’re tied in rings, but Duncan’s team has been much more consistent over the years than the Lakers. I just hope Kobe can get #6 before he retires!
