DENVER - MAY 29:  Kobe Bryant #24 of the Los Angeles Lakers dunks the ball in the second half against the Denver Nuggets in Game Six of the Western Conference Finals during the 2009 NBA Playoffs at Pepsi Center on May 29, 2009 in Denver, Colorado.

It was a pretty cool evening in the hood with nice breezy weather as i munched on tropical fruits and anxiously waited for two minutes to pass by so that i could begin watching the TNT pre-game show that would lead to the "Superman" show starring Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic, beat the Cavs.

Kenny "the Jet" Smith had the nerve to say, in reference to a "TNT and Big-Pockets" wish for a LeBron vs. Kobe showdown, "...when it comes to LeBron James...when you have a guy like LeBron James on your team...papers don't mean anything...you just (saying as he tore up paper) do this with the stats..."

Wow, I mean I've seen Kenny put his foot in his mouth a few times before, but this was the dumbest incident to date. First of all Kobe's skills are proven, and LeBron is still only reaching about forty percent of his potential as a player and has a whole lot to learn still, not to mention he is somewhat immature in my opinion.

Second, the majority of the East-Side only played up to maybe fifty percent of their potential all season long.

Finally the West-Side's number eight seed Utah, could have swept both of the teams that the Cavs swept in series one and two of the playoffs' season if they could have traded places. In other words, the Cavs never played a game game during the entire playoffs until they faced Orlando's "Superman" and team period.

I told everybody that Orlando would advance. What's next?

Well, while I really do love "Superman",especially because of his awesome personality, and not to mention his unbeatable physique, I will be true to my team as i have been a Lakers' fan ever since I can remember. No matter what they go through, for better or worse, so I guess I'm in the cross-lights.

My eyes will be dreaming while watching "Superman", but my heart will be cheering and rooting for the Lakers. Kobe will always have my heart.

Go Lakers!
