I hope they DO.
I hope they upset HOU and GSW - if not THIS year then NEXT.
I hope they make it to the Finals - either THIS year or NEXT.
I hope BOS makes it to the Finals, as well.
I hope Kyrie is allowed the opportunity to stick a fork in LeBron - in GREEN - in JUNE.
I want Kyrie Irving to pat LeBron James on the head - once again - but this time tell him "Sorry LeBron but BOS is winning Banner 18, now."
I want Gordon Hayward to complete his "Unfinished Business" by regaining his form AND playing a key part in beating LeBron James and the Lakers - in June.
I want Kyrie Irving to put an END to "Playoff Rondo."
So YES - I "WANT" The Lakers to make the playoffs and go down in a GLORIOUS Purple and Gold flaming ship and SINK - torpedoed by their hated rivals The Boston Celtics.
