I'm glad because so many people were saying the real final was the western conference semi. I really dislike that attitude. This was like when the NFC in American pro football won about 15 Superbowls in a row, so there was good reason to expect severe blowouts. Sure, oftentimes the best AFC team was worse then about the top 3-4 NFC teams, but from time to time the games were close such as the first time the Bills went and lost to the Giants, and the Cincinati versus San Francisco game.
Surrounded, as I am, by Laker fanatics, it has been sad to see all their gentle spirits crushed, but since I grew up in San Diego, home of zero world champion teams in any major US sport (no soccer does not count) I can emphatize.
And that, EQDom, is why no, the Clippers have *no* chance. They once resided in San Diego, and are not yet cleansed.
