I have to admit, going into the conference finals I really didn't care that much about the Kings, I just didn't want to see Shaq win another title (Sorry Laker fans-no offense). I never hated the Lakers, I just was getting kind of sick of them. To be honest though, I thought the Kings would be lucky to win two games. As I watched the series though, I grew to love this Kings team. They really played with heart, and i began to think that they could win the series. People say they choked in Gm7, and, well, some of them kinda did (Christie, Peja), but I would attribute that more to their lack of big game experience in comparison to the Laker players. But Bibby stepped up like I never thought possible, and Webber surprised me with his ability to play under pressure at least to some degree. Bibby is now my favorite player in the league (unless, of course, MJ comes back for another year), and I love this Kings team. I will always be a loyal Bulls fan, but otherwise the Kings are by far my favorite team other than them. You've got great fans, and Arco Arena reminds me of the old Chicago Stadium with it's loudness and intensity. The Pistons took the Lakers to 7 games in the 80's before beating them the next year in 5, and the Bulls took the Pistons to 7 games before beating them the following year in 4. So have faith, yours will be the next great NBA team.

Don't say they'll win it next year. Shaq and Kobe plan on playing together for atleast another 6 years. 9-peat!

If Shaq keeps getting fatter (and more injured as a result) then the Lakers might only have a couple of years left in this 'dynasty'

Mr.X

Shaq has said that he will probably not play for more than two more years, and even if he stays it may not matter. The Kings may be able to beat them next year, Shaq or no Shaq.

That maybe a bit harsh mod. X is just a loyal fan to me.

Then why were you asking his age?

Do you just sit here and critique me all day? Calling him immature, IMO, isn't an insult or anything. It is just the truth and I'm gonna speak the truth...

I am not questioning anything here man.

I was just wondering how he has the time to pad his posts. Like he has that much free time to do so? You know?

You're wrong. He's recently stated that he would like to play another 6 or 7 years in the NBA. He said this after he said he'll only play 2 more. He said that he'll on play 2 more years because of his injuries...9-peat!

And Shaq was 315 last offseason. He was slim and not big at all. The only reason he got to 350 was because of the injuries that made him sit out practice and games. This season he'll be back down to 315-320...you watch and see.

Shaq at 315? :laugh:

That's a stretch.....


It doesn't really matter how long he WANTS to play, it is a matter of if his body can hold up for another 5-7 years... I doubt it...

Shaq has his best season in 99-00. I thimk he still weighted 350 pounds at that time.

I know. He is definately never going to be back down to 315. I would say that he played most of this season at 385+ pounds.......

How do you figure? The Kings pushed the Lakers to the brink of elimination this season. The Lakers wil need to be prepared for an onslaught next season....
