Who cares about the Lakers?

Game 1: Detroit tops LA by a dozen. Yet everyone on the planet went into tonight saying it would be all Lakers, and that they might even sweep.

Even during the game, the announcers and analysts just continually kissed the asses of Shaq and Kobe. Um, scoreboard? Who gives a fuck about the Lakers? I am so insanely sick of hearing about the two-dimensional team.

I'll give Kobe some credit, because he's a very above-average player, but his attitude sucks. I really can't stand Shaq. Being huge and doughy is not a skill or being athletic. Any guy who gets paid that much and puts up free throws like a third grader is not a real athlete. A real athlete would work his ass off to make it better. His attitude sucks as well.

It would be a beautiful thing to see Detroit win the series. Even with millionaire players, watching them is fun because it's clear that it's still about the game.
