As a fan of basketball, its hard to watch any team lose such a big lead like that. But the Lakers are infamous for getting lazy & losing after having big leads. The Laker beat themselves last night.

Hey, Kobe, still think it was all you and no Shaq? Maybe you should change your jersey number to 22, because no way Number 23 would have let Paul Pierce shut him down to a sorry 6 for 19 shooting disgrace at home in winning time, or let that sorry collapse happen on his watch. Kobe, call Shaq and apologize for ever thinking the Lakers needed you more than they needed him during their (long ago) championship era.

Most over-rated player in NBA history... Kobe, All you Fakers fans try and compare him to M.J. Not even close, M.J. was a team player who was surrounded by talent. He had Pippen and a cast of quality players. Kobe's off season complaining got him what he deserves, EMBARASSMENT when it counts most in front of a national audience. Team is not spelled KOBE, choke, choke..........
All those Hollywood stars paying $22,000 for courtside seats... Looks like Jack's the Joker now!
Celtics so far this year: 5 wins
Lakers so far this year: 1 win
MVP..........yeah right!

The Lakers have played one half out of four games. At this rate it would require them to play sixteen games to win four.........." I LOVE IT"!.........GO CELTS

Hey you liberal left winger have you ever heard Earvin Johnson and Ahmad Rashad speak they are atrocious and never bash Limbaugh! You probably know nothing about sports anyway, you probably played with dolls as a child.

Hum... I wonder if you even understand the game or even know how to play! Lakers and Celtics are great teams since the beginning of time but for you to say Kobe is over rated your just another fool sitting on the coach acting like you could do better! Give respect where it is deserved! Boston has a great team and this series there just making the better play in the stretch. Stop being a hater you sound like a little baby!!!

Every Laker fan should eally tip there hats to Boston they spent the money to get the best players on the market to blend in with the great player in Paul Pierce that they already had. Wish the Lakers would have done the same in the off season.Maybe Mitch and the rest of the front office will do more this off season to make the Lakers stronger in the 2008-2009 season. It looks bad for the Lakers but I have hope until the faye lady sings. Good luck Celtic fans on sunday

That was one hell of a game.

Who's hot The Celtics, who's not the Patriots

Who's hot Ray Ray Allen, who's not the Lakers

Who's hot Paul Pierce, Who's not Kobe Bryant

Lets go Celtics stay hot, put LA out of the playoffs and win it all on Sunday for Larry Bird!!!!!!!!!!

OK,first off like it or not the Celtics, and THE PATS are not!!!!!!!!!!

Secondly, I would like to see either Pierce or Allen get the finals MVP award. But I honestly think it's going to go to KG.
