The Lakers were crapping in their pants! They are too weak and not physical enough to beat the Celtics. The mind game has already been won by the newly Crowned NBA Champion Boston Celtics! It's just a matter of time before you Laker fans run out of excuses!

BP as a Laker fan, I agree with you on one front. Pao Gasol has got to get aggressive for the Lakers to compete. He's very soft in the last couple rounds!

Lakers just have to step their game up. Whats with the b.s. acting of the Celtics, talking about Pierce and his fakeass injury, come on now, tell him to leave that to Hollywood. Both teams are good, obviously cause they both made it to the finals. Now its about who wants it most. The Lakers are the better team. Of course we want them to win, they just need to step up their game and I agree Gasol needs to be more agressive.No,the Lakers were not crapping in their pants I think the Celtics fans were and they need to be just talk to the Spurs and their fans and they will tell you all about it. No one is making excuses for anything, Boston fans, enjoy this victory and may it be your last one.

Wait why is everyone making a bid deal of Boston winning at home?

Aren't they suppose to win at home?
Is not like they took home court from the Lakers.

Now if the Lakers win game 2 and take it from them is a whole different story.

This was not just a one-night hoax. The Lakers will go down. The Celtics are too good for them. Think about it; the Lakers lost to the Celtics bench. Boston was banged up and still stopped Bryant to win the game. It takes more than just one player to beat the Celtics. Ask LeBron James......... Celtics will sweep!!

Exactly how did Pierce or the Celtics benefit from Paul's injury? Stop making excuses. The Lakers and their sorry excuse for a coach are going on an early summer vacation at the hands of the Celtics. Can you say "sweep"?

Do You realize is seven game series?
Game one never dictates the pace of the series all it does is created adjusment.

Besides how can U even use the words one-night hoax and they were playing Boston.

Boston should win in boston and their bench should be at their strongest point playing at home.

If they had beaten the Lakers in game one in L.A. yeah I can understand why You can say don't call it a one-night hoax, but no when playing Boston.

If the Lakers decide to run Boston could be in a lot of trouble in seven game series.

How it was obivious the energy surger the whole garden got from that.

I think he faked it, never seem some one recover like that from knee dislocation, and then he goes claims an Angel made it all better...plsss

Let's see how he plays in game 2, he should not be 100% if he really injured his kneew, but I have feeling he will be playing he never hurt him self.

I never said they benefited in any way just making a comment. As for sorry excuse for a coach, come on now stop hating. May the best team win. Can you say MVP?
