Apparently he's the refs rapist too... We're getting screwed... how do they miss Diaw and Nash calling for the timeout and come up with a jump ball call and no foul on Nash... what the f@%? Looks like the NBA has decided that an all LA second round will bring in higher ratings....

Even as a Lakers fan, and delighted as I was at Kobe's final shot, I have to say that this really put a bad taste in my mouth. Even aside from the timeout, Nash was *clearly* fouled. I love that the Lakers won, and I don't even necessarily think that the Suns deserved to win--they're supposed to be a much better team than LA and they just can't seem to put them away--but I hate when officiating decides a game.

On the other hand, the possibility of a freeway series in the second round makes my heart skip a beat. So much awesome. The poor Clippers will basically be playing seven road games, though.

That Lakers Suns game 4 was a lot of fun.

That chant of MVP for Kobe seems to indicate his troubles are behind him.

Kobe being Kobe, I don't think his problems will ever be behind him.

Freeway series - hell - I think both the Clips and the Lakers play in the Staples Center. Fans won't even have to drive, they'll just have to change seats and the teams will just sit on opposite sides for each game.

Yeah, they do. Like I said, sucks for the Clips, they're basically playing seven road games. On the one side, you have Jack Nicholson rooting for the other guys, along with just about every other LA celeb imaginable. On the other... Billy Crystal.

mwahahahaha!

i honestly did not see a foul there, but you did get screwed in that the refs didn't give him the timeout.

the series isn't over yet.

Seeing how the Bulls-Heat series has been going I think that the Nets have a really good chance of making it to the Eastern Conference finals. Obviously we have to take care of Indiana first, but now that we got home court advantage back I don't think that's going to be too much of a problem. As for Detroit, I think we can pull that one off as well - 2 of Detroit's 18 losses were to the Nets and the Nets have beaten them in Detroit (yeah, I know, playoffs are a totally different atmosphere, yada yada yada). Don't discount the Nets, they've gone to the NBA finals before when they were being underestimated, and those were teams that weren't as good as the one we have now.

Some people have put the Nets out of it because of what's happening with Indiana but that's just the Nets, they'll lose games to crappy teams and will kill good teams (I was at the game not too long ago when they gave the Suns a thorough thrashing and kept Nash to 0 points).

If nothing else, well, at least we're not the Suns.

Seriously. Nash said something about how he didn't feel Bell should have been ejected for it--that seems clearly stupid to me. Bell clotheslined Kobe, straight up, and he very clearly meant to do exactly that.

I will say, though, that it did make for an interesting game.
