A dunk on Shaq is still worth only 2 points, correct? Then, even if Kobe does dunk on him, that would mean Miami would beat the Lakers by 22 instead of by 24. But, it would mean Kobe would get to leave Miami with the lovely parting gift of an L, a gift he will be finding many times in the future.
A dunk would mean he owns him, he can prove that he is the one that won the 3 titls for the lakers. and the last time they meet Miami beat lakers by only 2 points. I don't know which channel you are watchin.

If by "2 points" you mean "13 points" that would be correct since St. Patrick's Day usually comes after Christmas in the course of an NBA season.

Well, given how Kobe's usual method of showing dominance over someone involves a Colorado hotel room, Shaq should thank his lucky stars that he's just being dunked on.
On the flip side, congrats to ABC for hiring Tim McGraw to tailor the lyrics to "I like it, I love it" for every halftime highlight show throughout the "Monday Night Football" season. Just last week, my buddy House and I were discussing Cosell's classic highlight narratives in the '70s, and how nobody had approached them since, and I told House, "Only one thing could ever come close, and I know it's a long shot, but what if ABC hired Tim McGraw to tailor the lyrics to 'I Like it, I Love It' for each week of NFL highlights throughout the season?" And wouldn't you know, it happened! See, dreams can come true. --- Bill Simmons, www.sportsguy.net
The Thunder have nothing to be ashamed of after that series. Considering the Lakers are a veteran ball club and are the defending NBA champions, Oklahoma City gave the Lakers a fight and made LA work pretty hard to advance to the 2nd round.
