Boston Celtics: ESPN LA
With Boston winning Game 1, it's my serve and I volley the first question to Brian Kamenetzky:
So what's the panic level in Los Angeles been like over the last week?
B.Kamenetzky: Well, in the day or two following the game, pretty high. The Lakers lost to an elite team. Again. They lost at home. Again. Kobe seemed to simultaneously satisfy in one game the camp insisting he shoots too much and those who think the supporting cast isn’t clutch enough to step up. Suddenly Mitch Kupchak declared the Lakers’ trading window might just be open for business, and Magic Johnson was on TV declaring the Lakers needed to make a move because they looked old and tired.
ESPN Boston's Chris Forsberg phoned in to ESPN 710 in Los Angeles to join ESPN Los Angeles' Kamenetzky Brothers for a preview of Game 3 of Celtics vs. Magic and there might have been just a little glimpse ahead to a potential Celtics-Lakers showdown in the NBA Finals.
OK, there was a lot of glimpse ahead.
