Open Thread — Game 7

Kurt —  May 6, 2006

When this series started, we said Kwame Brown and Smush Parker would be the keys — could the Lakers pound the ball inside and slow Steve Nash? For three games the answer was yes, and if the Lakers are going to win game seven it won’t be because Kobe scored 63, but because Smush and Kwame returned to that first-three form.

Or, maybe Phil has some other tricks up his sleeve. There’s not much else to say, we know what these teams can do, and almost all the games have been close. I expect this one to be as well.
