That might be the only way to eliminate Oklahoma City.
Sometime soon Magic Johnson is going to start talking about his Dodgers and their chances for success this season.
Keep in mind that Magic pronounced the Lakers out of the playoffs earlier this season, then declared later they would beat the Spurs in the first round before coming to the conclusion after one game the Spurs will have no trouble eliminating the Lakers.
And he knows basketball.
Or that he's now going to be a Big Baby again and keep his tweets to himself during Game 2 because some folks didn't like it?
If the Lakers-Spurs' game needed anything beyond Kobe playing on the court, it was Kobe tweeting and adding an element of entertainment to the snooze-fest.
As for Mike D'Antoni referring to Kobe as "a fan'' when asked about the Twitter Hog, how clueless is D'Antoni?
Kobe didn't include anywhere near the number of obscenities in his tweets that a fan would.
Our old friend, the Dodgers' Parking Lot Attendant, who has been in court recently fighting not to give more money to Jamie McCourt, was in the Chick Hearn Media Room at halftime of the Clippers' game.
I told Frank McCourt he had to relate to the woman who got the chance to go on the basketball court with a shovel and scoop up as much money as she could before running off.
The Clippers gave the woman an extra scoop with the shovel after time ran out, and I asked McCourt whether that had given him any ideas.
It really was like old times; McCourt turned away.
