Lakers vs. Spurs: Sweep Inevitable?

When the Lakers made the postseason on the final day of the regular season, most fans were joyous, celebrating the accomplishment as if they had never before sniffed postseason glory. That's how desperate Laker fans were for a postseason berth - just to say that they accomplished something no one thought they would after a dismal beginning to the season.

Blog Photo - Lakers vs. Spurs: Sweep Inevitable? Not only has this season been a colossal disappointment (and yes, injuries have played a very big role), but next season will be a completely different team with the new CBA rules kicking in and the Lakers set to pay north of $80 million in taxes. Enough about reflecting on the season, because the Lakers are set to come home for two games against the Spurs, only down 2-0 in the series. 

The Lakers have a shot, right? Jordan Hill just came back from hip surgery. So there's that, right? They also have well, decent guard play in Darius Morris and Andrew Goudelock so there isn't much to worry about on that front either. 

Tony Parker and Tim Duncan are just mediocre superstars who are cruising by with the help of some dude who sits on their bench and yells at them over and over again. Who does that guy think he is! Just because he pays for courtside seats, doesn't mean he can huddle them around every time theres a timeout. 

Gregg Popovich is another x-factor in this series. He OWNS Mike D'antoni. OWN. Pop has always defeated him and his Phoenix Suns in the postseason. He has always defeated the Steve Nash-led potent offense. The Spurs are toying with the Lakers because they have no guards. Nash is hobbled, Dwight Howard cant lead a team with no shooters around him and Pau Gasol isn't the scorer he once was. 

Dwight had a better team around him last year in Orlando than he does right now. 

Please keep tweeting in-game Kobe, because watching these Laker games is torture. Not because they lose, but because they are terrible to watch.
