Lakers Rally For 16th NBA Championship

Published by Marcus Vanderberg on Friday, June 18, 2010 at 1:45 am.

LOS ANGELES – Five.

That’s the number of NBA rings for Finals MVP Kobe Bryant after the Los Angeles Lakers rallied from a double-digit deficit to defeat the Boston Celtics 83-79 in Game 7 Thursday night at Staples Center.

“This one is by far the sweetest, because it’s them,” Bryant said. “This was the hardest one by far. I wanted it so bad, and sometimes when you want it so bad, it slips away from you. My guys picked me up.”

It wasn’t easy as Bryant shot 6-for-24 from the field but managed to score 23 points and grab 15 rebounds.

Derek Fisher and Ron Artest hit clutch three-pointers down the stretch to secure the organization’s 16th NBA Championship.

The question on everyone’s mind after the game was regarding the futures of both coaches – - Phil Jackson and Doc Rivers.

“I’ve got to take a deep breath. I’ve got to take some time to think about this,” Jackson said. “This was great. I’ll wait to make that decision in a week.”

YES, YES, CONGRATS TO THE LA LAKERS. ENJOY YOUR GLORY MOMENTS WHILE YOU CAN. JUST LIKE THE OAKLAND RAIDERS, YOU WILL GO DOWN TO NOTHING BUT A MEMORY OF THE PAST, AS ANOTHER TEAM IN THE NEAR FUTURE WILL COME AND TAKE OVER YOUR GLORIOUS MOMENTS.

NOTHING LAST FOREVER, AND THE WAY SOCIETY MAKES OVER YOU (LAKERS) NEITHER WILL YOU!

I couldn’t believe last night! I thought that was a really close game, and it was anybody’s game at that. Congrats to the L.A. Lakers and I hope Phil Jackson comes back next year for another great season. Better luck next time Boston Celtics!

I CAN’T BELIEVE HOW PEOPLE WORDSHIP AND PRAISE OTHER PEOPLE, LIKE ATHELES AND ENERTAINERS, AS IF THEY ARE GOD. YES, THE LAKERS WON. WOO WOO! HOWEVER, AFTER ALL IS SAID AND DONE, MANY PEOPLE OUT THERE ALL EXCITED AND FRANTICALLY CHEERING THIS TEAM WINNING VICTORY, IN THE END ONLY THE LAKERS WILL BE GOING HOME WITH THE, GOLD, THE MONEY, THEIR OVER SIZE HOMES, AND MANY OF YOU WHO’S OUT THERE SCREAMING YOUR HEADS OFF WILL BE GOING HOME TRYING TO FIND THE MONEY TO PAY YOUR UTILITIES, RENT AND SO FORTH. GO OUT AND TELL KOBE HOW MUCH YOU ADORE HIM AND ASK HIM FOR FINANCIAL HELP AND I BET YOUR ADMORATION OF HIM WILL BE IGNORE.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS, MAN SHOULD STOP PRAISING MAN , AND PRAISE THE ONE WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU HAVING EVERYDAY BREATH IN YOUR LIFE.

GO TO CHRUCH THIS SUNDAY AND PRAISE GOD THE SAME WAY MANY OF YOU OUT THERE ARE PRAISING THE LAKERS, WHO DON’T EVEN KNOW YOUR NAMES.

BUT GOD KNOWS YOU. DO ANY OF YOU KNOW HIM?
