I have a quick thought on last night's Game 6 of the Finals:
While a 39-point beat-down at the hands of the Celtics and a complete defensive collapse by the Lakers (if there ever actually was a "defense" to collapse) is embarrassing, NOTHING was more embarrassing than watching Michele Tafoya's post-game interview of Kevin Garnett. This interview gave us two adrenaline-packed, testosterene-filled gems from the elated Garnett: "Michelle, you look good tonight, girl", which was soon followed by "Anything is possible. ANYTHING IS POSSIBAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLL!!!!!"Now, I can't fault the guy for being stoked after completely deconstructing the Lakers en route to winning an NBA Championship, but I'm just guessing that once he got home last night, flipped on SportsCenter and saw the video of his interview that was capped by his best Howard Dean impression ("Byaaaaaah!!!"), he had to say, "Wow, that was a bad idea."
And yes, Laker fans, like any serious fans who just witnessed their team endure one of the most painful losses in recent memory, will have the memory of an elephant and should greet Garnett in his next trip to the Staples Center with chants of "You look good tonight" and "ANYTHING IS POSSIBAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLL!!!!!"
Until then, the Lakers and I will be working on our defense.
