To the bench mobs that I've known, you are the best. No direspect to the Celtics seniors bench but our young and smart bench mob will run you over tonight. Dream, believe, survive. Now Go Lakers!!!

no disrespect back, but I'll believe it when I see it.

you guys don't look any better than Cavs or pistons (two very good teams that we had to play 7 to beat, but still beat....)

And, I don't think 7 game series are a sign of weakness. We know we can win elimination games this year. you prob. can too, only your team wasn't tested that way. Not Lakers fault of course. Better to win, etc.

But, this is a different test and a young bench is not always an asset if they are forced to play out of the comfort level of a series lead and 100 plus points a game.....

Anyway, is this fun or what? Win or lose, always a great time against you guys.....

Your're right about not being aggressive. I believe they have to get their rythm back. That is playing their game. It seemed that they were playing what Boston gave them.
Another thing I would like to bring up is the bench. You're also right about the Boston's bench outplayed the Lakers but I kind of blame Phil for that. I don't think he played them enough. They (bench) couldn't get into their rythm together due to the lack of minutes.
I BELIEVE IT'S OUR BENCH THAT IS GOING TO WIN OR LOSE IT FOR US. They need minutes together to establish their rythm..........

You said it, Stumpy!! My FAVORITE Laker of all time! Love watching him on NBATV, too. I agree, Odom needs to be more aggressive and take it to the hole, esp. if Perkins is out; get PJ in foul trouble or Davis (if he plays). When Lamar and Pau are playing off one another, it's a beautiful thing to watch. Kobe WILL get his tonight, too. Looking for a Laker "W" to even up the series in bringing it back to Staples on Tuesday.
