All I Can Say Is GO LAKERS!

Everyone's talking about a Los Angeles vs. Boston series in the end. The Celtics have not put the Cavs to rest yet and don't forget about Orlando. They're nothing to shrug off!

The Lakers are looking good against the Suns but there are no guarantees.

Yes, Go Lakers! L.A. versus Boston, L.A. versus Orlando. Po-tay-to, po-tah-to. Go Lakers!

You got that right! Woo!

Old guys win 4-2.

That's all I have to say. As an old guy, it seems important. ;-)

I don't base my loyalties on age even though I would definitely be considered quite old in the NBA. I'm a Los Angeles native and lifelong Lakers fan.

By the way, the average age on the Celtics = 29. Average age for the Cavs = 27.8. Average age for the Lakers = 27.7. They'll be matched up well against the Orlando Magic with an average age of 28.8. Doesn't seem so old to me!

None of them seem particularly old to me either, Apryl, as the "old guys" I had in mind are mid-30s. (Kevin Garnett being a good example. That's nearly 20 years ago for me!) Still, age does cause more of an issue with injuries sometimes... as both you and I are (reluctantly) familiar with.

Just for the record, I'm pulling for the Suns at this point, since they certainly seem to be the underdogs of the four teams left. My Bobcats made played like they were in their mid-40s and hobbled off the scene early. (Although I have to admit that, given their history, that was still something of an accomplishment. Hopefully MJ can find some better "magic" for them next season.)
