The Los Angeles Lakers are about to win their next championship. And it's all because of the Memphis Grizzlies.
Y'see, last year, Memphis traded all-star player Pau Gasol to the Lakers for...um...well...nothing. He was traded for like a draft pick or two that Memphis has probably already given away, a player or two that I don't think are with the team anymore (and that Memphis knew weren't going to be with the team for long), and Pau's brother, Marc Gasol. Now, Marc is a good player, but hey, there are a lot of good players in the league. But Pau Gasol is an all-star.
Oh, and there's another thing, too: Jerry West. West has been with the NBA for a hundred years as both a player and an executive. 95 of those years he was with the Lakers...5 of those years he was with the Grizzlies. He left the Grizzlies in 2007 to go back and hang around the Lakers again. The very next year, Memphis traded Pau Gasol to Los Angeles for nothing. West had it planned all along.
As soon as Gasol went to the Lakers last year, I knew that they would come close to winning the championship last year, but that they would defintely win it this year. My only slim hope of LA not winning was if LeBron James and the Cavaliers played them in the Finals. But the Cavs choked just like they always do. And LA is on its way to a sweep of the Finals against...get this...the MAGIC.
So when the Lake Show kisses and slobbers all over that trophy Thursday, and the rapist Kobe Bryant is all smiles (after looking pissed off after every play in the series, even ones that go in his favor...why is he mad when he makes a shot? Is he effed up in the head?), all I've got to say is...you're welcome, Los Angeles Rich Man's Team...we gave it to ya!!
