Bryant Monster Dunks Over Duncan

Revenge is truly a dish best served cold. The Los Angeles Lakers, exactly one year after being eliminated from the postseason by the Spurs, returned the favor in a decisive victory. Not even the Spurs’ Hack-a-Shaq tactics worked down the stretch. Shaqfu had 17 points, 19 rebounds, and five blocks, dominating the paint for the duration of the game. Kobe was on fire in the fourth quarter, even providing an “exclamation point” dunk over Tim Duncan (pictured here) in the last two minutes of play. The Lakers await the winner of the series between Minnesota and Sacramento, which Minnesota is leading 3-2.

Here’s a little perspective on the competition, the Kings have only made it to the finals once (1950-51), they were known as the Rochester Royals then, and won the NBA Championship. The Timberwolves have never even made it past the first round in the playoffs. In contrast, the Lakers have won the NBA Championship 14 times in their 27 finals appearances. If history proves correct, the Lakers will advance to the finals.


  1. I don’t really care for the NBA but the Lakers smell too much like the Yankees and thus I guess I should dislike the Lakers too.

  2. The Boston Celtics are the real NBA Dynasty, they have won the 16 NBA Championships, two more than the Lakers. But, they have only been to the finals 19 times, versus 27 for the Lakers. Don’t playa hate though, damn!
