The Spurs Helped the Lakers Out

Do You Think Kobe Wants to Suffer the Same Decline Facing the Aged Tim Duncan? We Think Not!
Last night, Kobe Bryant had, not only one, but TWO spectacular slam dunks, (sorry, Emeka) in the Lakers much-needed victory in Game 5 against the young New Orleans Hornets. As surprising as either rim-rocking jam was, should we really be that surprised? We're talking about the "Black Mamba" here, the NBA's premier closer. Besides, Kobe doesn't want to go the same route as the hapless, elimination-facing San Antonio Spurs.

Thank you, Spurs.

The Spurs-the number #1 seed in the Western Conference-is a loss away from a first-round elimination and what would be the biggest upset since the Denver Nuggets bounced a 64-win Seattle Sonics team a decade ago. The Sonics never recovered; thus the franchise now finding itself rejuvenated in Oklahoma City. The Spurs are old, tired, overrated, and done. Tim Duncan, who's had his worse year of his boring-yet-successful Hall of Fame career, needs to hang 'em up after tonight's loss, (I'm saying Grizzlies in 5).

You think Kobe Bryant's ready to follow suit after 15 glorious seasons? Never. Thus, the Sputtering Spurs and their enevitable demise, (though many so-called experts are saying they'll recover and win the series in 7), has inspired Kobe and his boys to come out last night in game 5 and do work. Lakers' coach Phil Jackson said after their game 4 loss that the team was "punked" on the boards. Even in the first quarter last night, Hornets' swingman Trevor Ariza punked Kobe on offense, doing whatever he wanted off the dribble and hitting wide-open threes. But once Kobe's injured ankle loosened up . . . he simply remembered how the Spurs should and will be watching him do work next week in the conference semis from the comfort of their family room couches.
