It’s All-Opinions Day
They’re only opinions, but at least they’re all mine:
Here’s what the NBA’s postseason has really taught us: There is no one truly dominant team out there . . .
I’m just guessing, but I’ll bet the Lakers have a few more than 13 free throw attempts in Game 5 at Staples Center tonight . . .
Somebody better start paying attention to Colorado’s Ubaldo Jimenez. To be 9-1 with a 0.88 ERA this far into the season is jaw-dropping . . .
David Ortiz and Vlad Guerrero, the Comeback Kids. Who knew? . . .
What’s the big debate about? Phil Mickelson deserves to be rated the No.1 golfer in the world now . . .
Did the Angels put struggling Brandon Wood on the Disabled List, or the Unable List? . . .
Quietly, first baseman James Loney is having an excellent early season run for the Dodgers . . .
If I were Phil Jackson, I wouldn’t mind Ron Artest taking a few threes. I just wouldn’t want the Lakers’ season to be riding on any of them . . .
So what is the NCAA waiting for, the week before the season starts to hit USC football with those penalties? . . .
I’m sorry, I can’t resist the pun. Those new 6-10 twin basketball transfers from North Carolina via Mater Dei High should Wear well for Ben Howland at UCLA . . .
Country Joe West is breaking the No. 1 rule of his profession: Umpires are not supposed to be noticed . . .
Everybody connected with sports in Southern California is rooting for my close buddy Mitch Chortkoff after his latest turn of rough luck with diabetes. If anyone can come back from this, Mitch can . . .
A Super Bowl in New York, huh? Yeah, I can hardly wait to see them run post routes in the snow . . .
I like the Lakers and Celtics to both win their respective conference finals in six games. But hey, what I know? I thought Crystal should have won over Lee on American Idol, too . . .
