Last NBA season; it’s in the history books. Literally. Been there for months. It’s taken me a while to even want to write about the Laker’s loss in the finals. We pretty much crashed and burned in the last game against Boston.
But that was then, and this is now and that means (from what little we’ve seen so far) a new and improved Lakers. Kobe got a gold medal, Bynum and Ariza are both looking healthy in training camp, Chris Mihm is back, and Phil Jackson shaved the goatee. Does this mean the dream rematch against Boston next year in the finals? Seeing as the season hasn’t even started yet, it’s probably a little early to tell. But a guy can dream, right?
