I was openly rooting for the Magic but alas it wasn’t their time. I don’t want to write some long winded recap of the series, but taking a cue from Shaq on twitter, a quick congratulations are in order.
Congrats Kobe Bryant on #4 – Maybe we can get the Nike puppets in the video for “Shaq How My Ass Taste?”
Congrats Phil Jackson on #10 – Hands are full… walk away. Now where can I buy that cap?
Congrats Lamar Odom – How SWEET it is to be on that cover – just another thing money can’t buy you
Congrats Derek Fisher – Big Shot Bob Who? You made them when they counted.
Congrats Pau Gasol – Puppy dog face + NBA trophy + Bear hug + Invisalines= Priceless! … Now go thank Chris Wallace
Congrats Trevor Ariza – You can now spend the rest of the summer planning what to do with all the money coming your way.
Congratuls Andrew Bynum – You finally got your hands on the only thing you can grab without getting called for a foul.
Congrats to the rest of the team – Sasha Vujacic , Jordan Farmar, Luke Walton, Shannon Brown, Josh Powell, Didier Mbenga, Sun Yue, Adam Morrison – Each of you now have 1 more ring than Malone, Barkley, Reggie Miller….
I may not have written a recap but the rest of the blogosphere was all over that…
