NBA Finals Game 7 Thread, 6p

The Dodgers/Reds game was polite enough to finish early (and in fact, the Dodgers didn't even show up!). So now we can FOCUS on this one: the ultimate game of the NBA season, facing the last two NBA champions. For all the marbles. Winner take all. Cops on alert. This is it.

Go Lakers!

On.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This is it. No Game 8. No adjustments. Winner take all. You either do or die, no excuses. Go in there, and give it all you got. Play your entire heart out until you can't play anymore, and then you play some more. Now go out there, and win one for the Gipper.

Josh S. said...

David Stern just announced a Game 8.

NicJ said...

As Magic used to say. "Its Winning Time"

Joseph McCarthy said...

I'm about to throw up w anticipation for this game. Anyone coming over to watch? If so, bring beer.

Dusty Baker said...

"Abdul-Jabbar was unable to play in Game 6, but Johnson stepped up to turn in one of the most remarkable performances in NBA Finals history. Still just a 20-year-old rookie, Johnson moved from guard to center and tallied 42 points, 15 rebounds, and 7 assists, single-handedly carrying the Lakers to a 123-107 victory and the NBA Championship. Johnson earned the first of three NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Awards."

Paul Robeson said...

I politely decline your invitation, Mr. McCarthy.

Mr. Customer said...

Baby hook mojo!

I like it!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ain't nothin wrong with Magic Johnson's running sky hook.

MR. F said...

All the marbles? This one's for all the tacos! Go Lakers! Win! Clinch! Destroy! Humiliate!

Dusty Baker said...

Lakers smash!

Dusty Baker said...

This got me a tad weepy.

MR. F said...

Nice to hear the good luck from James "Houston Rockets Fan" Loney.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Yeah, I thought Loney was a Rockets fan.

Dusty Baker said...

Loney is. But I'll take it.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

One hour until the biggest basketball game the world has seen since 1988.

Dusty Baker said...

'Sheed confirmed to get the start at C for Celts. #GetInHisHead #It'sEasy

Dusty Baker said...

Still waiting for someone to show up w more cerveza.

Mr. Customer said...

Dusty,
"Still waiting for someone to show up w more cerveza."

The chances of me making my flight tomorrow dropped by several percentage points just by me considering it.

Dusty Baker said...

Debating watching pre-game. Will it just make me more nervous?

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr C

Unless you're flight is at 5:45am, I question your manhood. ;-)

MR. F said...

I wouldn't watch pre-game. I'm still at work. Dunno when I'll be able to leave.

Dusty Baker said...

I'll go with Mr. F's sage advice.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I never watch pregame.

karen said...

I'm with you guys. I watched the pre-game before game 6 and it made me a nervous wreck

Dusty Baker said...

TV: off
Beer: cold
Anticipation: dizzying
Dog: lap
SoSG GT: tabbed browsing
Snark: building up

It's on.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm hyperventilating. Is that normal? PLEASE SOMEBODY TELL ME THAT'S NORMAL.

Dusty Baker said...

I can't help you out with "normal" MLASF.

Mr. Customer said...

Dusty,

Not that close to the asscrack of dawn, but close

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr C

So, then only bring over a case. Slow night and all.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Dodger connection with the game: Peter O'Mally is there, sharing a suite with Jerry Buss.

Dusty Baker said...

I sure wish one or both of them owned the Dodgers now!

karen said...

@MLASF what is this thing you call "normal"?

Dusty Baker said...

Lakers have won 10 championships in my lifetime. I'm 40. So one of every four years we've grabbed the NBA title. Not too shabby, and I want to think I had a little something to do with it.

NicJ said...

my nerves are shot.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Something tells me that won't be the only time we hear Magic say "Back to back. Yes! Yes!" tonight.

karen said...

I started getting nervous as soon as the Dodger game was over

Dusty Baker said...

I'm emotionally rollercoasting like a drunken sorority girl.

I just giggled twice and cried in the time it took me to type this.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm having trouble breathing. You dial 9-1, and when I say so, dial 1 again.

karen said...

To funny DB

Fred's Brim said...

win this one for Dane Cook!

Dusty Baker said...

@MLASF

911 is a joke!

#PublicEnemy

karen said...

Screw Dane Cook and the horse he road in on

Fred's Brim said...

hehe well said, karen!
Dane Cook?
he can go to hell

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lakers look good on the boards early.

Dusty Baker said...

I guess they're letting them play.

NicJ said...

damn, they are letting them play.

Fred's Brim said...

You go ooh and ahh when I jump in my car
People treat me like Kareem Abdul Jabbar

#PublicEnemy #OldCrankyLakers

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lot of second chance opportunities. Wallace has nothing on defense.

Dusty Baker said...

well said, nic.

NicJ said...

oh, that was a foul.

Fred's Brim said...

Rajon Rondo's got an afro with a chinstrap

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kobe has to pass. Ron was wide open.

Dusty Baker said...

God dammit get over and help Kobe.

NicJ said...

ugh, celtics defense looking tip top.

Dusty Baker said...

Faked out by a soft Spaniard!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You have to punch someone to get a foul.


Something tells me that Rasheed will test that idea at some point.

Dusty Baker said...

Dear SoSG readers, please tell me how I'm supposed to tell if my beer is cold.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I think I can say with certainty that Downfall will be the dumbest reality show ever conceived.

Dusty Baker said...

ABC's "Downfall" game show - please tell me that is fake. Please?

Fred's Brim said...

Cornbread!

Dusty Baker said...

We can't shoot!

But we can rebound.

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

Ain't nothin' wrong with that.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nevermind. KG tests it with an elbow, and it works.

NicJ said...

well KG pretty much punched Pau right there.

NicJ said...

if allen starts to get hot i want someone to put him on his back.

Dusty Baker said...

I just remembered that when B Shaw would set up a dunk for Shaq, we'd call it ShawShaq Redemption. Good times.

I want to see some Surf 'n Turf tonight (Fish to Kobe).

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm starting to detest Mark Jackson.

NicJ said...

kevin garnett dominating early? 4 points and 1 board.

Fred's Brim said...

@Nic - Alleyoop dunks are worth 2+ points

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Paul Pierce grew up in LA? No!!! Really???

Dusty Baker said...

HIT A FUCKING FREE THROW

NicJ said...

we are getting hammered going to the basket and then we get called for an offensive foul.

BS

Dusty Baker said...

Just hit a god damned shot - anyone in gold!

Fred's Brim said...

siddown Nate!

NicJ said...

how many times is big baby going to get that little baseline layup.

Dusty Baker said...

No question about a moving screen on KG on that one.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

KG WAS HOLDING ODOM, YOU MORON

Fred's Brim said...

hmm looked like a foul at full speed, but...

Dusty Baker said...

Announcer didn't think it was a foul? KG had him in bondage!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was directed at Van Gundy.

Fred's Brim said...

FARMAR BENCH NOW

NicJ said...

well, the team that won the first Q has won every game.

so......

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

HIT A FUCKING SHOT

NicJ said...

this is worrisome.

Fred's Brim said...

Danny Fortson is sitting somewhere getting fat, wondering what could have been

MR. F said...

COME ON GUYS

Fred's Brim said...

ooh baby, lucky that didnt go down

Dusty Baker said...

wow, did we suck that quarter.

NicJ said...

well, the C's did a great job of getting the crowd out of it.

NicJ said...

i guess we used up all the ball movement in game 6.

Dusty Baker said...

we shot 22%. seriously. 22%. way to show up, guys.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lakers are rushing all the shots they take. Need to control tempo.

Fred's Brim said...

no worries - they'll get back in it

NicJ said...

good start to the Q

Fred's Brim said...

there we go

MR. F said...

Okay. Good start. Keep it going.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nice start. Solid defense, good moves by Odom and Kobe on offense.

Josh S. said...

Did he just say they've won 61 of 18?

NicJ said...

thats what we need from lamar.

that and the ability to convert at the line.

Fred's Brim said...

as long as Tony Allen is getting minutes, there is always a chance

Dusty Baker said...

All we needed to do was to bench Kobe.

Fred's Brim said...

no problem

MR. F said...

KEEP IT GOING

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The offensive rebounds are saving our asses right now.

Fred's Brim said...

keep playing defense

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I want to get rid of Farmar so badly.

Fred's Brim said...

lotsa misses for the Cs

Fred's Brim said...

stop taking long shots, RonRon

NicJ said...

fuck man, we are bricking everything.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hit the damn 3s you guys.

NicJ said...

someone please get hot.

Fred's Brim said...

tie game, folks!

Dusty Baker said...

If gasol would have blown that bucket after being wide open but hesitant, I would have just exploded.

But...9-0 run.

NicJ said...

i like this much better.

NicJ said...

hit him jack!!!

Fred's Brim said...

that's it, Ron. Channel Rodman for the rest of this game

MR. F said...

YES! KEEP IT GOING! KEEP IT GOING!

NicJ said...

seriously, just knock rondo on his ass next time.

Fred's Brim said...

Ray's collllld

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Seriously? The Celtics make one basket the entire quarter so far, and that's the highlight they show going into the commercial?

Fred's Brim said...

I gotta say, this has been quite the game so far

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't think there's anyone better who captures the complexities of high schoolers going straight into the NBA than Dwight Howard.

NicJ said...

seriously we have to get a whistle or two.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

3 on KG

NicJ said...

finally.

Dusty Baker said...

3 on KG

Dusty Baker said...

we can't even hit FTs! pathetic. fucking pathetic.

Fred's Brim said...

stop chanting MVP during the NBA finals

Dusty Baker said...

Kobe 2-11 tonight. Def not MVP caliber.

NicJ said...

THIS IS FUCKING BULLLLLLLSHIIIIITTTTTT

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If anything, Pierce fouled Fish.

Dusty Baker said...

How do officials let Kobe get pounded in the paint with no whistle, then call Fish for that second one? Still say: NBA worst officiated sport in the world.

NicJ said...

who the hell wins the MVP, no one is really deserving of it.

dodgerbobble said...

Where the hell is Shannon Brown?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It'll probably be Kobe, no matter who wins.

NicJ said...

im hoping the 2nd half is better. This game has beend at bostons pace so far

NicJ said...

im seriously going to cry.

dodgerbobble said...

Back to some ugly Laker play.

Dusty Baker said...

@Dodgerbobble

Where the hell is Kobe?

NicJ said...

Ron Ron is keeping us in the game offensively.

thats not good.

NicJ said...

ron the only one getting calls.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was a foul on Wallace. Stupid Allen.

Dusty Baker said...

Scalabrine? Jaysus. I can't even look at his bloated, pasty self.

Dusty Baker said...

What is Kobe doing????

Fred's Brim said...

Kobe Bryant has a Subaru Legacy?

NicJ said...

aint lookin good.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Only down by six, we're still in this game.

Fred's Brim said...

no Trojan Pride, Dusty? What about for Harold Miner?

Dusty Baker said...

Well, we can't possibly shoot worse. Only one way to go. Kobe won't come out at go 3-14 in the second half, I can almost guarantee.

NicJ said...

i know people always say they dont want to see a game with too many freethrows, but i doubt anyone wants to see a game with a final score of 80-64 either.

Fred's Brim said...

only down 6, shooting like the 96 Miami Heat, only gave up 40 points

No Problem. The Lakers will take care of business in the second half

Fred's Brim said...

Bender's Big Score is better than the halftime show

just sayin

NicJ said...

Lamar needs to show up, 0-1 with two boards aint gonna cut it.

Dusty Baker said...

Who was that courtside reporter lady? I wanted to go ask her where the reference books are.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Stupid Breen. You don't say "count it" unless it counts.

NicJ said...

what the fuck is kobe doing?!?!?!?!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kobe, I love you, BUT PASS THE FUCKING BALL

Mr. Customer said...

Not such a good sequence.

NicJ said...

fuck this, we dont deserve to win.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I can't watch this anymore.

Dusty Baker said...

dodgerbobble said...

This is unwatchable.

Mr. Customer said...

Seriously painful.

NicJ said...

sorry kobe, but game 7 of the finals is no time to shoot yourself out of a slump.

Dusty Baker said...

Embarrassing.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon you fuckers! The Dodgers took and L for you today and you play like this?

Fred's Brim said...

oof I can't believe Jackson just resurrected the ghost of John Starks

Fred's Brim said...

ok time for a run, Tony Allen's in

NicJ said...

they are choking.

Dusty Baker said...

KOBE. Another missed FT. -14 when he's on the flo.

Dusty Baker said...

Kobe just accidentally nailed a jumper.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon everybody, stay in it. This game is farrr from over

Dusty Baker said...

PROTECT THE FREAKING BALL, LAKERS!

you do know that the guys wearing green are going to try to take it from you, right?

Fred's Brim said...

keep working Pau

Fred's Brim said...

let KG take his patented passive fallaway

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

THEY'RE COMING BACK...

Mr. Customer said...

Lamar lives!

Dusty Baker said...

PROTECT THE FREAKING BALL, LAKERS!

Fred's Brim said...

Phil needs to punch Kobe in the nuts

NicJ said...

kobe isnt getting any whistles.

NicJ said...

FUCK YES LAMAR!!!

Dusty Baker said...

I think Kobe would make a whistling sound if Phil punched him in the nads.

NicJ said...

when did sheed turn into tim duncan?

NicJ said...

gotta get some stops.

Mr. Customer said...

Pau waking up?

Mr. Customer said...

Stop needed

Fred's Brim said...

Odom you need to do something. You have a guy guarding you who weighs 100 more pounds than you

Mr. Customer said...

4, baby!

Dusty Baker said...

LO just did something for you.

Fred's Brim said...

haha why is Veal even in there?

Fred's Brim said...

The Lakers will win because of that Scalabrini shot

Dusty Baker said...

THis game is an embarrassment to the game of basketball.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lakers WIN the quarter by two.

NicJ said...

4 point game.

Take this Lakers

Mr. Customer said...

I can't believe the Lakers actually won that quarter. Looked pretty rough until the end.

Dusty Baker said...

SASHA IS NOT THE FUTURE OF THIS FRANCHISE

karen said...

My ulcer is running amok

NicJ said...

hopefully kobe was just saving all his buckets for the 4Q

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't know if I should watch the U.S. game tomorrow. That might give me a heart attack.
