For some reason this always happens to the Lakers - they luck out and get the EASIEST draw EVER on their way to the finals.
If the Lakers get the Trailblazers or Nuggets, they're in for a real scare. Slightly less so with the Grizzlies but Memphis will put up a fight but New Orleans? what a joke. That better not frickin' happen ! I hope NO gets knocked out of the playoffs at this point (won't happen but I wish) b/c that's just a joke series without David West around now.
