lakers facing elimination. i know, i can't believe it either. i've already given most of my opinions on what's going on with the series. part of me hopes that there is some kind of conspiracy to get the series to seven games, but i generally laugh when people make charges that the officials are calling a game to go a certain way. generally when i see a referee call more fouls on a certain team, it is almost always because that team committs more fouls.
i know that i just got done writing about not buying into sports myths, but my head can't seem to convince my heart that the lakers will lose this game. i suppose i can concede that it is likely that the pistons will win the series, but it still doesn't change the fact that i love shaq. so go shaq, go lakers, shock the world.
on a semi-related note, is it me or is that pistons' PA announcer waaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyy over the top. if i remember correctly the pregame introduction went something like, "wearing the biiiiiig reddddddd number threeeeeeee, b-b-b-b-b-b-ben w-w-w-w-w-w-w-wallace". the NBA is too noisy. maybe that's why i don't like it so much anymore.
