Magic Lose At Home, Assassinate Anthem-Singing Little Girl

OK, not really. But don't expect to hear any more creepy autistic children singing the anthem in Orlando.

The Lakers will wrap this series up in the next game or two and Kobe will earn his first Shaq-less ring, good enough to put him in the one-of-the-best-players-ever conversation, even though he's not even the best player in the NBA right now (imagine what LeBron will have done by the time he's Kobe's age).

As for the Magic, there's no way they could keep shooting the lights out, and so the spotlight then falls on Dwight Howard and his offensive shortcomings. Your franchise player simply cannot average eight shots in the NBA finals, especially when said player barely makes 60% of his free throws and can't stop smiling.

So when the Lakers capture the title in a few days, the countdown to The Most Hyped Offseason In Basketball History begins (sure, there will be a 2009-2010 season, but it'll only be a precursor to the LeBron/Wade/Bosh/Nash/Amare/Dirk free agent shitshow).

Really, David Stern? Couldn't you have just given everyone the Lakers/Cavs Kobe vs. LeBron series we all wanted? Would it really have been that hard to put that fix in? Trust me, everyone would have looked the other way, no big deal!
