Mychal Thompson is a former Laker who won championships with Magic Johnson. Mychal is now an analyst on the Lakers radio broadcasts. Mychal joined Robert in Hour 1 to talk about the Lakers implosion in the Western Conference Semifinals against Dallas. Podcast after the jump.


How about those Hawks? Holy cow they are a resilient bunch. 100-88 winners last night, Atlanta has even the series with the 1-seed Bulls at 2-2.


Dear Lakers Fans:

The sky has fallen.

- Dallas swept the 2-time defending champs away with brusqueness usually reserved for pretenders rather than contenders.

- Phil Jackson is all but officially retired. Who wants to coach this hot mess?

- It turns out that Andrew Bynum, the pillar upon which the future of the franchise rests, is kind of a punk.


If you have a heart condition, you may want to step away from your television this weekend.


Dude. The ATL beat Chicago – who you may have heard has the league MVP and is the 1-seed in the NBA Playoffs. The Hawks did the Bulls in Chicago in Game One, 103-95.


Robert has a useful saying about postseason basketball: The last shot needs to go in. Last night’s game one between the Mavericks and the Lakers was a great example of this. Kobe missed at the end. Thus, Game One to Dallas, 96-94.


We don’t want to hear it. No “told you so’s” for us here. The Heat are not going to win the NBA championship. If they get past the Celtics, it’s because Boston is old and not deep. The Heat are still soft until proven otherwise.

Game One of the Semis goes to the LeBrons, 99-90.


Dallas Wins in 6. Next up, Los Lakers.


The Spurs were staring at the setting sun. Their dynasty’s obituary was being written. Then, Gary Neal.
