Lakers Put Away Hornets
At some point we’ll wise up. The Lakers are still in the hunt for their third straight NBA title. They put away the New Orleans Hornets in six games.
Tell us if this pattern sounds familiar:
1) The Lakers underachieve and look beatable for a small stretch of games
2) Media and fans say Lakers are through due to complacency, age, or both
3) Lakers regulate, put away lesser opponents, and carry on their title defense
At some point, we’ll wise up. Until they’re eliminated, they have to be the favorites.
