The best part about the Rockets/Lakers game going seven games: I will not be able to watch it and can therefore not be blamed for a loss.
A Lakers loss is a scary thought. Think about the current status of sports in Los Angeles:
- Manny suspended 50 games for performance enhancers.
- NHL playoffs continue without the Kings, who ended the season in second to last place in the Western Conference.
- Mark Sanchez, beloved USC quarterback, opted for the draft.
- UCLA Bruins were ousted in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
- Everyone on the L.A. Galaxy MLS team died of swine flu.
- The L.A. Avengers have yet to win the coveted Arena Bowl championship.
Ariza, now is your time to shine.
