Gonna Fly Now

Posted on: June 9, 2008 7:57 pm

Well, Laker fans, we are down two games to none in the NBA Finals to the Boston Celtics.  Is it time to panic?  No, I don't think so.  I'm not basing my lack of panic to the fact that the Lakers almost pulled off an incredible upset last night.  I'm more basing it off the fact that those were tough games in Boston, but the Lakers now have three home games to pull. 

What I'm getting at, is that the Lakers have played...let's just say that they haven't played to the level at which they are capable.  Not necessarily because Boston has been forcing them to play poorly, but they have been causing a lot of their own problems.  And what it reminds me of, is when, in Rocky II, Mickey trained Rocky to fight with his right hand.  Then all of a sudden, Mickey yells out, "Now!" and Rocky goes back to fighting southpaw.  This is the same kind of changeup the Lakers need.  Go back to playing the ball they know.
