I am a LAKER FAN....and i really acknowledge the comments BY THE Spurs TEAM...most especially the credit they say about KOBE and the rest of the team.....

SPURS also did a GOOD job for the last decade and i wish them luck for next conference...from now on I will be a part of SPURS crowd because of their team attitude.

As for me "REAL Great sportsman will ber recognize outside the playing court, most especially when their team is down"

I`ve seen the lakers did thier jobs.they did it pretty good,a balanced team of all the teams in the league right now.I say that just because they are young team but they made it to the final stage.I like their offense and also defense.......LAKERS ALL THE WAY

kobe is great, he will surely bring the crown to the staples center...go kobe go LA

Lakers have the necessary ingredients to beat the C's...honestly, this team is poised for a Bulls-type run, especially if they can get a healthy Bynum to return next season. Hopefully, the series will live up to its billing...can't wait.

This is going to be another great Lakers/Celtics championship! The Lakers win one in the Garden and then say hello to three straight at the Staples!!! Kobe gets his dream season wish and L.A. shows the basketball world that the Lakers are back to reign! Not to flip/flop, but if the Celtics play their best, which is very likely, this thing could easily go 7. This is the finals we always hope for--2 great teams battling their guts out for the Championship--buckle up!!! Go Lakes!!!

Spurs show class, teach the East how to lose with dignity--Pistons should take notes. The WEST is the BEST!

great article.. and yes, i hope they bring it home. now i have soo much respect for the spurs even tho they lost to the lakers.

Well the lakers really did deserve it more than the other 7 in the west. they played good basketball. other teams says they have dedication, but lakers has more to offer.

i see a ring for the lakers.

4-2 lakers win!!

probably it is kobe's year , winning the MVP is great!and perhaps having a championship ring at the same time will be the "greatest"

the lakers proved that they are the best team in the playoffs so far in my opinion, when most teams can't get the job done on the road, the lakers can have proven that they can win on any team's floor, so i think they can beat the celtics in seven games....go lakers!!!

Get Timmie some help in the middle, maybe Spitler and Mahimi will be ready. Get a young wing player who can score and defend when Finley and Barry can't do it. It's time for Horry to hang it up and Bonner is just too slow to really hang and bang. Some tweeks here and there and the Spurs can easily win another or two with the big three. The bench just doesn't have enough consistent firepower when Manu starts, which he should. Pop is a great coach and so is the organization. Next year!
