Lil Wayne’s a Smart Man…

blame it on Shake April 22, 2009

… atleast with his NBA Finals prediction.

Just so no one gets it twisted: the Lakers are winning the NBA Finals. Now that KG is out, the C’s aren’t gonna go anywhere, which is a shame. You always like to have the defending champs in there to fight like hell to hold on to their crown. Doc Rivers doesn’t want to believe it. And as competitive as KG is, I can’t imagine even being around him right now — how frustrated he must be because all he wants to do is get out on that court. He’s probably breaking stuff in his house, he’s so mad.

More after the jump…

Anyway, so now we’re looking at a Lakers versus Cavaliers final, and that’s going to be amazing. Kobe won’t get the best of LeBron, but the Lakers will get the best of the Cavs. I’ll be rooting for the Lakers, and LeBron already knows that. So it’s not like I’m gonna show up in a Kobe jersey and make ‘Bron Bron cry. He knows I’ve been a Laker fan my whole life so it’s all good. That don’t mean he likes it, but he ain’t gonna cry when he sees me at the games screaming for Pau Gasol and Trevor Ariza.

But LeBron will be OK. He’s gonna win the MVP this year. That will be his consolation prize. Phil Jackson and the Lakers will walk away with more rings, but LeBron will get his trophy. Shout out to Tex Winter (the Lakers assistant), too, because it’s his last season and he’s the amazing brain behind the triangle offense. Some day, I will move to Los Angeles and live out my destiny to become a true loyal Lakers fan at every home game like Jack Nicholson. I will live next to Hugh Hefner and I will be at the Staples Center nightly, because that is my destiny.

Besides the Cavs and Lakers, I still think the Blazers are the team that could go far and surprise a lot of people. I like Greg Oden coming off the bench, and Joel Przybilla is playing possessed right now. And I may get a lot of people calling me crazy in the mailbag for this, but Brandon Roy is just as good as Deron Williams or Chris Paul at the point. The Blazers are a very exciting young team with a lot to prove, so if we’re talking a playoff sleeper pick, they’re it.

    wayne’s such a douche

  • gill

    naw, kobe is good and all. but down with lakers


    cavs got this

  • Cavs baby 4-3 series

  • Even if Celtics did have KG, they wouldn’t repeat reasons because of Bynum’s inside presence that Lakers lost last year, Ariza seems to be progressing.

    Any true NBA fan know the Celtics lost out big with loosing Posey, who brought intensity out on the defensive end and pretty decent long range shot.

    As for the Lakers winning it, YES they will, if everyone stays healthy. Cavs have no bench to close out a Pistons team so Kobe will have his 4th ring.

  • jcrunk

    i have a feelin one of the underdogs is gonna surprise da shit outta people… ATL maybe! its jus a feelin tho

  • Joe

    IF the Celts had KG, we would have a damn good chance against the lakers. Perk=Bynum both are just alright offensively and seem to be about equal on D (with the exp advantage going to Perk). KG> Gasol all day. Only wild card for the lakers is Ariza, he way to athletic for us to really check him and Kobe for 7 games, but stranger things have happened.

    But that said. Lakers got the best shot to win it all this year, but I think there supposed “chemistry” this year is all a front and a underdog could come up and win it. I’d love to see ATL in there, but i think it might be the cavs (?) in the finals…

  • /b/tard

    Lakers > Cavs in 6.

  • Ariza is starting to become Kobe’s Scottie Pippen and if that happens, the lake show is going to win a few more championships. You can count on that yo.

  • chase

    lakers all the way this year they gon sweep utah and probably beat portland in 5 games cus portland cant handle the lakers

  • Tommy

    Ariza is starting to become Kobe’s Scottie Pippen and if that happens, the lake show is going to win a few more championships. You can count on that yo.


    Woah woah woah, I posted “Lakers > Cavs in 6” as /b/tard, so I like the team of 1000 Lakes to win it all. But saying Ariza is Kobe’s Pippen is a HUGE reach! Do you know how good Pippen was? Pippen was a top 10 player in the league, Ariza is no where close to that as of now. It’s all good stating opinions, but that statement is flat out erroneous.

  • i have a feelin one of the underdogs is gonna surprise da shit outta people… ATL maybe! its jus a feelin tho


    I agree with jcrunk on that one, dont sleep on them HAWKS! fuck what you heard. I bet you they’ll go 7 with the Cavs next round, might even beat em. dont sleep. Chicago too. if Philly beats Orlando, Chicago’s going to the Conference Finals. Chicago and ATL, watch out for em

  • Mr_Cl33n

    I dont know what Wayne talkin bout. Cavs in 7 over the Lake Show…

  • stik to my gunz


  • james

    Mos def Cavs gunning for the win but i’m biased cause i live in c-town

  • demise

    lakers cavs series would go down just like it did in the regular season. believe it.

  • SOC4L

    i think the finals gonna be a letdoown the LA LAKERS r gunna handle the cavs eeasy 5 or 6 games trust phil jackson wont let them fuck up again lik last year when they should have brought home a championship

  • MC YoungMuchacho

    Lakers beat the Cavs twice already…both times without Bynum.. once with Kobe playin wit a dislocated finger..the otha time Kobe was playin sick

    Lakers own da Cavs

  • come on cavs.. its time baby

  • Ringer


  • George

    You guys are assuming that Blazers are even going to make it past The Rockets. Yao is a beast and he’s been shooting extremely well (percentage-wise).

    Lakers vs. Cavaliers would be an amazing Finals.. does anybody know their record against each other?

  • George, the Lakers beat them everytime they played this season

  • Luke Emerson


  • hiphop4life

    cavs r winning the chip this year n lebron mvp

  • black

    I’m a Spurs fan and i got the cavs taking this, player wise the cavs whole starting lineup out matches the lakers. Yes Lebron is a hell of a’lot better than kobe this season i said it you’d be a fool not to think so. the lakers bench is just about even to the cavs bench overall Illgallskus and varejo are more of a threat down low then gasol and bynum. Mo wiiliams is that dude if he keeps playing the way he is the Cavs are gonna win a cople of Chips

  • harry johnson

    yall niggas are stupid man you think the lakers are gonna win it all when they wont even reach the finals both the nuggets and portland can beat them cavs 4-0 against denver
