Making a series out of it? You must be kidding me. The Lakers would already be eliminated if it weren't for that lucky Horry tres at the buzzer in game 4. I hate to admit it, but the Lakers would be unstoppable again if Shaq and Kobe were 100% at the same time. Shaq may not have too much outside skill, but he truly is untouchable under the hoop. It doesn't matter if its because he's a giant, he still schools most people that he plays against.
Personally, I wanted the sixers to go all the way. I've been following Allen I since he was at Gtown.
