Los Angeles Lakers Front Office
The Lakers have told themselves they can beat the mundane task of the regular season, get into the playoffs at whatever-and-whatever, with nothing more than professionalism but the drudgery has already set in.
Is Russ spitting nonsense when he says he's a Pau Gasol acolyte? Yeah, probably. But a tamed Russ, who is ferocious yet under his own control is an exhilarating concept.
As the NBA transitions to a new era, a Lakers-Nets Finals could function as the capstone to a certain era of stars; one last hurrah for everyone old enough to remember when David Stern was still their commissioner. This would be a Super Bowl of sorts- a collision of legacies too rich to miss, too hyped-up to possibly escape.
