Lakers are cheaters

Looks like the Lakers took a page out of Red Auerbach's book and sabotaged the Celtics' plane, delaying their flight out of L.A. and causing the team to get back to Boston last night instead of early Monday morning.

Now, before you call me crazy, it is no stretch to say the Lakers had something to do with the 'mechanical problems' that caused the Celtics to need a new plane to fly home. Let's connect the dots:

It's all ball bearings nowadays.Chevy Chase played Fletch. Fletch, in one of his many disguises, impersonated an airplane mechanic. He also dreamed of playing for the Lakers and being interviewed by Chick Hearn. Chevy Chase is a Hollywood actor, and as we all know, Hollywood actors are all lemmings that root for the Lakers when they are good. Well, all Hollywood types except for Matt Damon, Mark Wahlberg and his no-talent brother. They are on the side of the righteous.

 Leave it to Jerry Buss to come up with this kind of chicanery. Actually, this has Phil Jackson and Jerry West written all over it. Buss is too busy trying to remember his name to come up with something this intricate. Jackson can fool some people with his 'Zen-master' act, but he is as devious as the come. He played for the Knicks, for crying out loud. And I don't buy West's down-home facade.

Bottom line: Get the Sunday night security tapes from LAX (if they haven't already been destroyed) and you will see Chevy Chase up to no good around the Celtics' plane.

No matter. The Celtics can just go into their bag of tricks (Auerbach had a ton of 'em), turn the temp in the visiting locker room up to about 97 degrees and watch the Lakers wilt.

Now you prepare that Fetzer valve with some 3-in-1 oil and some gauze pads. And I'm gonna need 'bout ten quarts of anti-freeze, preferably Prestone. No, no make that Quaker State.

Yes, It was I who sabotaged the plane.

I also caused the Lakers to play terrible defense.  If you remember, when I played with Kareem and Magic, I would box out and get the tough rebounds.

You can pull every security tape you want, they shall reveal nothing.

What happened to the Celtics is the simple result of karma. Boston has been bush league for so long, what goes around is finally coming around. Pretty soon, fire alarms will start going off in Kevin Garnett's house ....

Well, as long as they didn't resort to the old manure truck jack-knifing on the 405 routine.

You should totally see my shoes.
