    Care to rescind that one?

    When Rondo is on, the Celtics are the better team. He is the straw that stirs Boston's drink, certainly.

    The major question going forward, obviously, is whether Rondo can have three more great games before he has three bad (or even average) ones.

    Some comments:
    Ray Allen: greatest shooter in the history of the NBA? Reggie Miller may argue, but that's about it.

    There is no truth to the rumor that NBA Final officials are paid per whistle. If that were so, they'd be virtual millionaires. Blech.

    If Kobe doesn't score 30, the Lakers might not have enough offense to win. Imagine that pressure-- score 30 or lose. Gotta be tough.

    Ron Artest is not the original Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde, but he sure plays that way. Perhaps the dumbest smart player in basketball history. (With possible exceptions to Danny Ainge and John Starks.) He's got to be hard to root for.

    Derek Fisher looks really, really old when Rajon Rondo flies around him.

    Andrew Bynum played really, really well tonight. Seven blocks and aggressive post-up play. If he can ever get healthy, that kid could do some damage, either as a legitimate third option for LA or for someone else.

    Speaking of options, Pau Gasol might be the ugliest basketball player since Kevin McHale. Check that: Gasol is who McHale would be if he were born 30 years later. And in another country. (Though, to be fair, Minnesota could be considered another country.)

    I miss Luke Walton.

    I don't miss Bill Walton.





    While you were reading this, Rajon Rondo grabbed two rebounds, stole the ball once, scored on lay-up, and blocked a shot. Magic Johnson also had a brain anuerism trying to describe Rondo's play.

    The whole highlight was about Kobe being sweet, and he was not.

    KG was in foul trouble too and the Lakers shot 15(?) more free throws. Tough to blame the refs. Lakers just choked down the stretch.

    There's really not enough game between the fouls, though. Is that the refs or the players?

    This series will go 7 games.

    I thought Kobe looked a little tired.

    I think Rondo makes a lot of guys look old. The Lakers need a thug to clotheline Rondo driving the lane to slow him down. But they don't have anyone like that.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    But if they had someone, he'd need to be someone who could finish the job. Shaq & Dwight Howard both put hard licks on Rondo in the past 2 series, and he stayed down for a while, but came back & was strong to help eliminate Cleveland & Orlando. It's not enough just to knock him down hard once and hope that works.

    The split made you reduce the number of games they'll win in? You really think they'll win two in Boston?
