    Except for the fact that LeBron plays 3.

    Here's another guy who only watches the Lakers.

    I am VERY worried about Cleveland. Lebron is just amazing.

    I'm really not worried about that part. I wonder how this team would be with a different coach for the past 2 seasons though.

    See Rudy Tomjanovich. Are people really questioning Phil? What should he have done differently? He can't make Pau Gasol more tough. He can't make Sasha capable of stopping a Ray Allen drive, and he can't prevent Bynum and Ariza from getting hurt.

    People a coach can only do so much good and so much bad. In every sport it comes down to the players.

    Doc Rivers was considered a horrific coach before last year. His team ended up winning the title. Was it because he became some coaching savante? No, its because his players were better and they stepped up. End of story.

    Do you think Mike Brown is this genius coach? Nope, the Cavs are good because Lebron has taken his game to another level. I could go on and on.

    The Lakers "problems" I put that in quotations because there haven't been many of those have little to do with Phil Jackson.

    Alot of that had to do with PJ changing the scheme around for game 2. Gasol attacking Yao really made it difficult for him to A)Stay out of foul trouble, and B)be as effective as he wanted to be on the offensive side of the ball.

    The real adjustment was the hard double team on Yao, making him give the ball up, something we should've done in Game 1.

    I'm not saying any coach, but sometimes Jackson's decisions/lineups make no sense.

    We won game 2 because he didn't start. Given the injury and his style of play, Gasol is faster than Bynum, which is what you need to go against Yao. Bynum doesn't have the weight and the quickness (due to injury) to match up against Yao, so you bring in Gasol. That won't be the case should we advance and face the Nuggest in the Conference Finals.

    Game/series over! Yao is out the rest of the series with a broken foot.
