Even though the Lakers eventually won just before they went into overtime was the funniest play ever. Kobe had the ball and he was so sure he was going to make the game winning point, he was on his way, smiling and running to the basket and then the ball got knocked out of his hands.......and the instant replay....over and over....LOL!!!

No matter what the opinions or comments or analytical breakdown say about the Lee lob miss the Gasol goal tend or the Howard goal tend in the first quarter. The lakers won, that's it it's over! We just got to remain hostile at Orlando's Amway Arena. PERIOD!!! GAME OVER MAN!!!

Did you see the movie "Aliens" after their remaining dropship on planet LV-426 crashes and all hope of leaving the "hostile" planet is erased. Then Hudson (Bill Paxton) says in desperation, "Game over man, game over, what the F&#@ are we gonna do"?

GO LAKERS!!

When i find out the magic had time to inbound the ball,i had decided to turn off my T.V ,because i had thought about 1986 ,when Ralph Sampson beat the Lakers on a late secord shot.

Right, but even funnier was the LOSS the magic had in the end. I saw Superman revert to Clark Kent in both games now, unable to activate his magical cape and fly. It was like he became Lois Lane at times. Perhaps even funnier than that is the Smile erased from clark kents face after said Loss...

When Courtney was shooting that shot I thought of Fisher's basket with .04 left in the game against S.A. years ago. Coutney is no Fisher. Lakers were lucky to win this game. Almost all champs win a game they shouldnt have in the playoffs. Two down, two to go with five shots at getting those two wins. I like the Lakers chances.

Kobe had been warned by his couch exactly what would happen and still he ignored it. Perhaps this last game would teach the former MVP a lesson to listen sometimes.

blah, blah, blah......right! whatever, their are 48 minutes in a game, point being anything during those 48 minutes could have changed the game......should the refs call a fair and balanced game, could they review the game they call and re-think what they are doing, maybe how can they be more cognizant of where they are (in a championship series), and be less like the goofy cast and smiles of the team called magic.......yes i am angry, angry at the 3 stooges calling the game, they are soooooooo biased as to be pathetic, it is not fun, or pleasurable to watch a game of this stature and importance as to have to listen to the obvious biased for the magic.....and why? well van fundy's bro van goofy for one, has to stick up for the older bro....mark jackson the 'yes' man to both, and miss breen, the loser former coach so obvious jealous and envious HE is not coaching the AWESOME, FABULOUS, TALENTED, HIGH BASKETBALL I.Q. LAKERS....he has to resort to platitudes in favor of the magic in just a simple act of shooting the ball.......example:'''''''OHHH HOOOOOO LOOK AT THAT BEAUTIFUL 3 POINTER, BY THE MUCH TALENTED RASHARD LEWIS''''' EVEN THOUGH THE SHOT DIDN'T GO IN IT WAS IN GREAT FORM AND THING OF BEAUTY....' what crap missy breen,.AS OPPOSED TO AND 'KOBE MAKES ANOTHER 3 POINTER', PERIOD! SEE THE DIFFERENCE? AS ONE OF THE GREATEST PLAYERS OF ALL TIME (KOBE) MISSY BREEN CAN'T SEE THE NOT ONLY MAGNITUDE OF THE MOMENT OF THE SERIES, BUT HE SHOULD BE HAPPY HE'S TTHEIR TO 'WITNESS' SEE IT AND CALL IT....BUT NO, HE HAS TO BE PETTY.......we see who you are, your transparency, and phoniness is more than an irritant,.....to quote your yes man ..."you could be better than that"......and "momma look out for that man" he's being MORE than shameful.......HOPEFULLY THE POWERS THAT BE WILL LOOK FOR 'NEW GAME ANNOUNCERS,' SOME THAT CAN ACTUALLY CALL THE GAME FAIR, AND BE ENTERTAINING, ENLIGHTING AS WELL.....AND NOT BE AFRAID OF DAVID STERNS, TO TELL IT LIKE IT IS...TOO MUCH TO ASK, I SAY....EVERYBODY'S SCARED THESE DAYS, OF WHAT YOU SAY...."THE POWER STRUCTURE".....LOSING THEIR JOB, FEAR OF STANDING UP FOR ONE'S VALUES AND CHARACTER.....'FEAR AND LOATHING IN THE NBA'
