Beneath the fallout from game three, there are some key facts to fall back on: Detroit has a 2-1 series lead. Games four and five will be played in
Auburn Hills. If necessary, games six and seven will go down in LA. And the Mask of Hamilton shredded the Lakers for thirty-one points in game
It's true - the Phantom of the Finals is scarring the Laker legacy. Team Hollywood needs a face lift, a dagger for a cloak, an eye for an eye. Think
Kareem. Think Worthy. Think Rambis. And more recently, think Horace Grant. What do they all have in common? They've all played for the Lakers, yes.
True, they've all won gold in Tinseltown. But it's much more than that. When you look these men in the eyes, what do you see? I see championship
vision. I see a spectacles of glory. Quite simply, I see goggles...
Just the thought of it makes me googly-eyed: Shaq, Kobe, Malone, Payton, George, Fisher, Walton, Medvedenko, Rush, and even coach Jackson, all in
goggles. The only element left to conquer would be fog itself. I'm not big on guarantees, but I'll guarantee this: matching goggles can save face for
LA. Matching goggles can make the Lakers see eye-to-eye. Believe it or not - matching headgear can finally make the Lakers play with heart. It's funny
because it's true...
