1 & 1A in the NBA’s Western Conference
Four months ago, on December 25, 2007, this corner correctly identified for you the best 2 teams in the Western Conference this year, before either had yet amassed the top W-L record in their half of the NBA.
The reigning champs will try to stave off elimination tonight, as the soon-to-be DOMINANT power in the West seeks to close-out its opponent at home.
Given that the NBA’s Head Office has now acknowledged a two-shot foul SHOULD have been called on this decisive play at the end of Game 4 …
it would not surprise in the least to see the Spurs … either:
1) Go down fighting like champions, in a last possession game, this evening,
2) Push this series back to San Antonio for a Game 6.
It’s going to take a special team to dethrone this group of Spurs …
and these Lakers (even without Andrew Bynum) just might be THAT team.
