Remember when you asked what was the most painful moment as a Sports fan? Well tonight was pretty close to my most painful Sports fan moment ('93 Bills-Oilers). I never thought I would see a Phil Jackson coached or Kobe Bryant team choke like that. No team down 20 in a game, had come back to win in a Finals game...until tonight. I'm so angry I don't know what to do to settle down. To see a 33 yr old shooting guard with bad ankles get by a 24 yr old who supposedly plays good defense will be the painful image from this series. Even if they win Game 5, the series is pretty much over. The only thing that would put the icing on the cake is if my longtime nemesis Celtics fan from high school were to run into homeroom with the Sports Front page, chanting "GREATEST COMEBACK EVER" over and over.
If anyone needs more reasons why Kobe Bryant will never be MJ, just replay this game.
I really have no words for the debacle last night. I'm embarrassed to be a Laker fan. That was horrible. Letting an offensively challenged team score 21 points in the last 5 mins of the 3rd? Letting Eddie House and James Posey destroy you? I just have no words. This is up there with the '03 Rose Bowl for worst lost. Can't blame the refs on this one. We just suck.
I was so angry I couldn't even go to sleep for 2 hrs after the game. I woke up angry and had to put on the fake smile for my family. Not even free Krispy Kreme donuts at my son's school could change my attitude.
Obviously I've sworn off watching any sports highlights, shows, etc for the next few days.
Total abomination. I had to put on Goodfellas. I needed to see SOMEBODY at the top of their game performing at the highest level last night
that was so bad i'm not even going to say anything about it.
You know it's bad when even Realist can't say anything about it:)
