Published

Phoenix Suns V Los Angeles Lakers

After their royale battle win against the Warriors superteam of Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry, new, young Lakers coach and former player and Golden State assistant Luke Walton feared these youngsters may crash and burn following the cloud 9 high of beating his old firm last week.

But they rose from the ashes of doubt against Phoenix, eclipsing the Suns 119-108 Sunday.

In the classic Sunday Whites it was all right for the purple and gold at home sweet STAPLES again.

Lead by Sixth Man spark-plug Nick Young, who started the game and finished it with a team high 22. The thirty year old, now one of the “oldest” players on this team now affectionatly goes by the name of Uncle P. But catch him styling downtown just a few streets away from Pico and you can see that the forever Young player still has that swag, making this town his. Those in L.A. worrying about him stupidly holding a firework in the offseason now know he has the flame thrower this year, as he lights it up like the cities futuristic skyline adorned by palm trees as tall as the Lakers legendary legacy of big men.

A different kind of one, almost in the mode of an Odom, “Monster” Julius Randle had a beast of a game too. With 18 points and one passionate and crowd and club igniting technical to go along with Tyson Chandler. As the third year pro jawing with a big man and player the Lakers always wanted in the post wasn’t afraid to go at Tyson in the fists and elbows paint, a basketball players boxing ring.

But it was Jordan who provided the knockout. His clutch K.O. three assisted by Julius brought this court duel to the canvas. Clarkson’s 18 was offset by brodie D’Angelo Russell’s 11 and 6 assists to go along with an untapped resevoir of ice in his veins. All dunking, former Cav champ Timofey Mozgov also had a big 14 and 8 as the three game win streaking Lakers moved to .500 and past the Kobe Bryant era.

Slam Dunk Contest worthy, standing room only crowd and roof raiser Larry Nance Jr. did leave the game with a concussion however. The kind of dazed and confused head shot he gives most rims and defenders domes. He’s a-OK thankfully, but the lane driving maverick and his 8.2 points and 5.2 rebounds per off the pine will miss the Lakers next game against Dallas.

Despite the legendary Lakers franchise looking like they have new legacy makers of their own it was Suns sophomore star Devin Booker who had the Mamba Mentality number 24 would be proud of with a career high of 39 points in the books. Assisted by the cash and carry of Eric Bledsoe’s 19 and T.J. Warren’s 22 the Suns scorched some of the Lakers gold glow in the Californian setting sun before the night was over.

Now this League Pass, one to watch matchup between two of the youngest, fun and freshest franchises in the league, let alone their division of the Pacific looks set to run and run like Steve Nash in his day.

And it’s clear to purple and gold hearts everywhere like the need for World Peace that Lakers Nation really does love basketball again.

OH CANADA Welcome To Your First NBA Finals
We The Champions...

Clever Girl.

Extinct in Six? Like we said in my last article about the ‘Jurassic Park’ crowd of fans outside…NAH! The 6 just took the Eastern Conference Finals and Championship in that many games.

There will be no Game 7.

The Bucks stop here.

They the North are heading to the NBA Finals.

And it’s not only the first time Toronto have done it’s since their 1995 expansion inception into the North American league. It’s the first time Canada will be represented in the NBA Finals for this lands chance to be the first country outside those United States to win an NBA Championship.

And we believe this BasketballBuzz.

Even against the dynasty Goliath of Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green’s Warriors. Cinderella stories are always better to the glass slipper. Get ready for this Raptor to roar.

Welcome to Jurassic World!

Greek warrior heart Giannis Antetokounmpo had to walk out of his postgame presser because of this epic emotion. Kawhi Leonard even bigger than his been around the world and I, I, back to Canada rim rattling series beater against the Sixers, made an even bigger play for MVP of this whole country. Let alone the season, even if the NBA end up giving it to James Harden now when they should really spell it out for the alphabet. Everyone watched Kyle Lowry as he glowed tears of joy with his kid wrapped in his arms. His hand across his mouth face above says it all. Jeremy Lin couldn’t believe the Linsanity. And Drake’s plans seemed forever placed on the blazer shoulders of Coach Nick Nurse (or the Bucks Bud in hilarious meme trolling) who nursed Canada to their first NBA Finals as center Marc Gasol beating his injured brothers team (a Spanish showdown we wish we could have seen) gave it up for his former Memphis teammates on Twitter, taking them with him to the Finals as the grit and grind of the Grizzlies account responded in timeline kind.

In 2016 after their 20 year anniversary in the association, Toronto held the first NBA All Star Game in a league of its own. Two decades after being the only National Basketball Association franchise in Canada after those Grizzly bears of Vancouver (bring their franchise back) led by Marc’s big brother Pau Gasol made that Blue Suede Shoe Elvis move to Memphis. Twenty plus years later and now the King of Canada. Two decades since those Barney purple dino jerseys went from a laughing one to Mitchell and Ness hardwood classic throwback, out of stock. Twenty plus years since country cousins Tracy McGrady and the Air Canada of Vince Carter threw the legs and straight in the honey pot started something way above the rim. Two decades since Chris Bosh almost led the most completely fun and love to run team in the league at that time aside from Steve Nash’s Phoenix Suns, missing only their countryman making a point (how good would that have been? Almost as good as getting Carter back next season for one last dance and dunk. Make it happen Basketball God’s of the 6). Twenty plus years since Drake started rapping from the bottom of his basement.

And almost 25 years and seasons, 82 games, three rounds, six games, four quarters and an 100-94 win behind a double, 27 and 17 double from their leader Kawhi Leonard later and we’re here. Just like we hope our number 2, number one will always be.

Check out the views from Yonge Street on fire with fans celebrating peacefully and beautifully. Nothing was the same. And nothing ever will be again.

This is for them. Us. You. Me. Him. Her. The whole city. The entire country and the watching world that call themselves the North. 6 before Game 7 with that many left to try and Dub themselves Canadian champions over a whole dynasty heading for a parade across the Golden State of the Golden Gate Bridge to San Francisco. This is for the Bucks too and their champion leader Giannis. Afforded as more than a worthy opponent but their own legendary legacy of the future. This is for a young man who at 21 years old moved to Toronto to start a Basketball writing dream. That man is me. But more than that. This is for the pride of Angola, Edilson Silva who had a vision to start Canada’s first Basketball magazine. This is for every fan in Toronto, Canada and the North that will always be theirs.

Now read all about it, the Toronto Raptors and Canada are heading to the NBA Finals.

Next stop beat the Bay.

The North will find a way.

T.O. Canada this is your time.

Make history like no NBA team before you.
