Just something I drew while watching the Ottawa Senators/New Jersey Devils game last night. It is based on a recent X23 cover drawing by Mike Choi.
I didn’t manage to do anything but break pencils while watching the Phoenix Suns oust the Los Angeles Lakers from the playoffs. Clearly, Laker management needs to do something to address the lack of talent on this team while Kobe still has a few years left. Of course, the Holy Grail would be to get Kevin Garnett, but I am not sure that they could swing a trade with Kevin McHale (obviously, a Laker-Hater). Kwame Brown had exactly 5 minutes of sterling play in this series and 4 completely forgettable and ineffective games. How much was Luke Walton’s play affected by his injury? What happened to promising big man Andrew Bynum? The Suns ran circles around the Lakers. We’ll see how good they really are when they take on the San Antonio Spurs in the next round.
I think I’ll cheer for the Golden State Warriors the rest of the way…
