Re: Your NBA Playoffs.....Blazers Win!!! Blazers Win!!!
Bynum blew out his knee (again) last year, it had nothing to do with recharging his batteries. He was also invisible in the playoffs last year.
I'm not sure if I buy the mental fatigure argument. The Lakers went 12-3 in the first three rounds two years ago, only to lose to the Celtics in the finals. Last year they were tested by both Houston and Denver, and ended up winning the title.
When you consider how banged up Kobe is, the Lakers need as much rest as possible. I just don't think you can take the Lakers struggling with OKC as any idea of what may happen in later rounds.
