Lakers 90, Suns 121

Crash and burn, Zen General! (Not you, zengeneral, the other one, who was once coach of the Bulls, trask be upon them.)

Thirteen years, I've waited for this moment. I've been waiting for the Suns to do this since Game 6 of the 1993 championship, when they were unable to come back from a 3-1 series deficit versus the Chicago Bulls (TBUT). All through those years of Houston hegemony and even the humiliating Chicago resurgency (after a brief interregnum that is best summed up as Michael Jordan Was Playing Baseball), I waited, and watched, and hoped.

Delenda est Chicago! And down with the Lake-Men of Dale (TBUT)!

Oh, and go Suns. ;-)

Indeed, and what a beautiful choke
I think the Suns will make it through the Clippers, but the winner of the Mavericks vs. Spurs contest looks to be made of sterner stuff. It's unlikely that they'll power through, IMO.

Equally, this is the same Spurs team that eked out a championship against the Pistons last year, though I didn't watch much of that series or the 2004 one. I remember being inordinately pleased that Robinson got a second championship in 2003, though I don't think I watched all of that, eithe. It's arguably still a similar team to that one, though Robinson himself has a very large footprint.

How good are the Mavericks now? Back when I was following NBA basketball closely (in the early through late 1990s), they were a hopelessly dismal team. Then again, so were the Clippers.

I followed basketball closely in the late 70s through the early 90s. Once Larry Bird stopped playing, my interest waned. I loved the Celtics, and they just weren't the same after Bird left.
