Before Parade, Maybe They'll Play the Games

June 05, 2004

With the media already celebrating the Lakers' championship, it's a no-brainer that the Pistons will come ready to play, while our glamorous team will not -- at least until they realize what happened to the Pacers could happen to them.

Now that the Laker turbocharged engine is in full throttle and everyone's trying to bum a ride throughout the Finals, shouldn't it be time to trade in that plain "bandwagon" for a newer, sportier vehicle, such as a "bandvertible"? Detroit may be home to the auto industry, but the "pistons" in this V12 purple and gold Laker speedster are more test-driven this time of year.

Besides, isn't it easier to spot Laker players waving in a convertible than a closed-in station wagon? Especially during parades down Figueroa in June?

Who says the Laker-Celtic rivalry is over? I can't wait to see Phil Jackson beat Red Auerbach for the record for most championships by an NBA coach.
