KC, don't let your anger get in the way of your argument. I'm not arguing whether SAC is a good team or not they are a great team. I'm just saying that they wouldn't have crushed the Nets.
The Kings did play the series of their lifes. Mike Bibby played well above himself. At times he played better than C-Webb, Shaq or Kobe. That's not the normal Mike Bibby. Divac did a better job on Shaq than anybody, including himself, has done on Shaq in years. Turkoglu except for game 1 played better than he usually does. And most important Chris Webber whos usually looked at as a play off flop stepped up. All that plus "bad" play by LA more than made up for a lost Peja.
The only reason that the Kings didn't come out on top was because of missed freethrows and lack of poise down the stretch of game seven. Hopefully, for you Kings fans, this experience will prepare them for the critical moments of next years series. I'm sure the Kings will come back better and tougher, but they aren't the champs yet, and you can bet that no matter what improvements the Kings make the Lakers will be ready.
