[QUOTE]I don't think one translates to the other. I could never say that. We sound like lakers fans, guys who STILL think they would have won in '08 if Bynum played. An impossibility, as we all know, for they would not have Gasol!! [/QUOTE]
And you have been proven wrong.
Why is it an impossibility? Bynum could have recovered from the injury and played in the playoffs. Target date to come back was April, 2008. There were numerous articles about when they expected him to come back.
Not to mention this wishful thinking of rejecting the gift of Gasol even if Bynum was healthy. So you told us about your "research"? that Mitch said so? I have a bridge in Brooklyn that I'll sell you...
No, the only thing I will say is that IF Game 7 was played in Boston, we probably would have won.

If game 7 had been played in Boston, the Lakers, while leading 3-2, wouldn't have given us this stinker. Remember 1985? leading 3-2 coming into Boston?
As a matter of fact, since 1984, for all the lower seeds leading the finals 3-2 and coming into the higher seed's court TO CLINCH in game 6, remember what happened?
1985 - Lakers won
1988 - Pistons lost by 1 point while Dumars missing a last shot
1993 - Bulls won
1994 - Knicks lost by 2 points, but only after Hakeem blocking Starks' shot at the buzzer
1998 - Bulls won
2006 - Heat won
2010 - Celtics made history by becoming the first team in 7 trials to stink up the court.
We should not be talking about game 7.
