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 Czar 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"

Kyle Baker said...

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

Kyle 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."

Josh S. said...

I politely decline your invitation, Mr. McCarthy.

Nostradamus said...

Baby hook mojo!

I like it!

Mr. LA Sports Czar 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!

Kyle Baker said...

Lakers smash!

Kyle 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 Czar said...

Yeah, I thought Loney was a Rockets fan.

Kyle Baker said...

Loney is. But I'll take it.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

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

Kyle Baker said...

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

Kyle Baker said...

Still waiting for someone to show up w more cerveza.

Nostradamus 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.

Kyle Baker said...

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

Kyle 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.

Kyle Baker said...

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

Mr. LA Sports Czar 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

Kyle Baker said...

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

It's on.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

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

Kyle Baker said...

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

Nostradamus said...

Dusty,

Not that close to the asscrack of dawn, but close

Kyle Baker said...

@Mr C

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

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

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

Kyle Baker said...

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

karen said...

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

Kyle 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 Czar 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

Kyle 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 Czar 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!

Kyle 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 Czar said...

Lakers look good on the boards early.

Kyle 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 Czar said...

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

Kyle 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 Czar said...

Kobe has to pass. Ron was wide open.

Kyle Baker said...

God dammit get over and help Kobe.

NicJ said...

ugh, celtics defense looking tip top.

Kyle Baker said...

Faked out by a soft Spaniard!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

You have to punch someone to get a foul.


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

Kyle Baker said...

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

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

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

Kyle Baker said...

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

Fred's Brim said...

Cornbread!

Kyle Baker said...

We can't shoot!

But we can rebound.

Kyle Baker said...

@FB

Ain't nothin' wrong with that.

Mr. LA Sports Czar 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.

Kyle 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 Czar 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 Czar said...

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

Kyle 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

Kyle 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.

Kyle Baker said...

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

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

KG WAS HOLDING ODOM, YOU MORON

Fred's Brim said...

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

Kyle Baker said...

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

Mr. LA Sports Czar 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 Czar 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

Kyle 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.

Kyle Baker said...

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

Mr. LA Sports Czar 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 Czar 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

Kyle 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 Czar said...

The offensive rebounds are saving our asses right now.

Fred's Brim said...

keep playing defense

Mr. LA Sports Czar 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 Czar said...

Hit the damn 3s you guys.

NicJ said...

someone please get hot.

Fred's Brim said...

tie game, folks!

Kyle 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 Czar 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 Czar 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 Czar said...

3 on KG

NicJ said...

finally.

Kyle Baker said...

3 on KG

Kyle Baker said...

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

Fred's Brim said...

stop chanting MVP during the NBA finals

Kyle Baker said...

Kobe 2-11 tonight. Def not MVP caliber.

NicJ said...

THIS IS FUCKING BULLLLLLLSHIIIIITTTTTT

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

If anything, Pierce fouled Fish.

Kyle 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 Czar 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.

Kyle 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 Czar said...

That was a foul on Wallace. Stupid Allen.

Kyle Baker said...

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

Kyle Baker said...

What is Kobe doing????

Fred's Brim said...

Kobe Bryant has a Subaru Legacy?

NicJ said...

aint lookin good.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

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

Fred's Brim said...

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

Kyle 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.

Kyle Baker said...

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

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

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

NicJ said...

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

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kobe, I love you, BUT PASS THE FUCKING BALL

Nostradamus said...

Not such a good sequence.

NicJ said...

fuck this, we dont deserve to win.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I can't watch this anymore.

Kyle Baker said...

Dodgerbobble said...

This is unwatchable.

Nostradamus said...

Seriously painful.

NicJ said...

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

Kyle 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.

Kyle Baker said...

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

Kyle Baker said...

Kobe just accidentally nailed a jumper.

Fred's Brim said...

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

Kyle 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 Czar said...

THEY'RE COMING BACK...

Nostradamus said...

Lamar lives!

Kyle 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!!!

Kyle 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.

Nostradamus said...

Pau waking up?

Nostradamus 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

Nostradamus said...

4, baby!

Kyle 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

Kyle Baker said...

THis game is an embarrassment to the game of basketball.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Lakers WIN the quarter by two.

NicJ said...

4 point game.

Take this Lakers

Nostradamus said...

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

Kyle 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 Czar said...

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