Waiting for 2010 #26: Rationalizing the Lakers' Game 3 Loss

Here are some good things about the Los Angeles Lakers losing Game 3, from the perspective of a lifelong Lakers fan:

1. Believe it or not: I really want the Lakers to win the Championship on Sunday's Game 5, not on Thursday. If not Sunday, then either Game 6 or 7 will do.

2. The little girl who sang the "Star Spangled Banner" continues her perfect good luck charm streak for the Orlando Magic.

3. The little boy (from the halftime segment) with the anxiety disorder that renders him speechless, who is magically healed (with the gift of gab) during Magic home games, will get to enjoy the last two games in Orlando.

4. Kobe Bryant was the one who committed the little-big mistakes that ultimately cost the Lakers the game, so the rest of the team won't get the blame for this loss. This also means that Bryant will be in redemption mode on Thursday.

5. The Magic finally get a Finals win for once in their history. Good for them - baby steps until they can win the Finals...another season.

6. After three games, Dwight Howard is still pretty useless thus far. I don't know what the voting fans were thinking, but Howard was not the Player of the Game. Rafer Alston was the Player of the Game tonight, and both Rashard Lewis and Hedo Turkoglu have been consistent for the past three games.

That's it for June 6, 2009. Remember, Soylent green is (some) people. ::boom:: LOST
