Congratulations to the Lakers


Well done. 

Congratulations to Kobe Bryant, for getting the proverbial "can't win without Shaq" monkey off his back (and thank goodness for him that LeBron didn't win one first).  Now we can prepare for the incessant Kobe/Jordan comparisons.  Should be tedious. 

Congrats to Lamar Odom, who has come full circle vis a vis LA basketball.  Way to hang in there.

Congratulations to Pau Gasol, who clearly appreciated not having to face the brusing frontline of KG and Kendrick Perkins this time around. 

Congratulations to Derek Fisher for hitting the big shots when they mattered.

Congrats to Trevor Ariza, who just doubled his salary with his terrific Finals performance.   We would love to have you here across the hall.  Our locker room is not that much smaller. 

Congratulations to Phil Jackson, perhaps the greatest coach of all-time, in any sport.

Congratulations to Jeannie Buss, who may now be closer to her first ring now that Phil got his 10th. 

And congratulations to the Lakers fans.  Stay classy, and try not to burn the whole city down.
