Laker Writer Confirms Bynum Beat-Down

Each game that goes by it seems more apparent to me that teams are going to try and play physical ball with the Lakers. It started a few months ago with Kendrick Perkins and Andrew Bynum...

I'm on a roll.

Sometimes I can't tell the difference between stuff I come up with on my own and reality.

It was clear to most that the much balleyhooed Andrew Bynum shriveled, shrank, and disappeared in both games against the GREEN this year. It was less clear who was responsible.

On at least one occasion, Kevin Garnett punctuated Laker futility in the paint by yelling "get that sh*t outta here" after Lamar Odom attempted to drive to the basket for a dunk, only to watch KG send the ball out of the paint faster than it had entered.

Following that rejection, both Odom and Bynum stopped dead in their tracks, dropped their heads, and slumped their shoulders.

Game over.

Checkmate.

But until that moment, it seemed like Kendrick Perkins was administering his own punishment on the purple.

Of course, I realize my Celtic bias may taint my objectivity.

The above-linked article from MVN, apparently written by a member of the Laker faithful, confirms the Beast played every bit as well as we Celtics fans remember him playing.

Kendrick Perkins is a very tough player, and yes he can be extremely intimidating when he wants to be.

My column was about what the Lakers need to improve on to be a championship team, but thanks for the love.

The Celtics have an excellent shot this year, as do the Lakers. In the head to head contests the Celtics have won. We can say how different we are with Pau, and he is a difference maker, but the facts are that the Celtics swept us.

Looking forward to seeing some of you Bostonians coming out West to the land of milk and honeys for the finals.

Good luck
