What a Christmas (for Laker fans)

I spent the entire second half on my feet in my living room. (This is the kind of event when the investment in a projection TV set is worth while.) The last couple of minutes were amazing with three-to-four Celtics collapsing on Kobe who swung the ball over to Gasol.  As the saying goes, Pau got it done.  What a gift to the Lakers from Barcelona via Memphis.  The way LA was playing today, they looked like the champions.  But there’s a long season ahead and then the real season – better known as the playoffs.
