Christina Aguilera Will Repeat National Anthem

Christina Aguilera

Evidently, the Los Angeles Lakers believe in things like luck and superstition. What else would explain them inviting Christina Aguilera back to re-perform the National Anthem for Game 7? Granted, her Game 6 performance was awesome but still. It’s obvious the Lakers like the vibe her singing provided — or maybe she’s to blame for the Celtics playing like such garbage. Either way, the Lakers are trying to re-capture whatever bottled lightening Aguilera’s Anthem provided.

Damn, Shannon Brown

Shannon Brown

Get up, son. And boy, did he.

While Brown may not have evolved into the NBA player some thought, and while he hasn’t contributed much to the Lakers against the Celtics (6 points, 2 points, 4 points, 5 points, 0 points and 4 points in six Finals games so far), the man can jump. High. Really, really high. And while he may not have contributed anything more than two baskets (two rebounds and assists as well), it’s doubtful you’ll see a prettier four points scored, maybe ever.

Oh, and Game 7, ya’ll. It’s hard to get much better than that, at least, sports-wise.

Carl Landry Is Like UPS

He delivers — thanks to an awesome pass from Chuck Hayes, who, since Michael Jordan has moved on, has become my favorite basketball player in the world. As for Landry, he just had a superlative game, scoring 15 points (look, the final margin of victory) on 6-6 shooting as well as nine rebounds and two filthy dunks, one of which is above. With the help of Landry, Hayes and a sterling game from Luis Scola, the Rockets absolutely dominated the Lakers in the paint, which brings me to an aside:

Has anyone filed a missing persons report on Andrew Bynum? I can’t seem to find him anywhere, even when Mike Breen says he’s in the game.

As for the Rockets paint domination, Hayes is entirely too physical for the finesse play of Gasol, and while Pau had an easier time scoring over Landry, he and the rest of the Lakers certainly couldn’t contain his athleticism on defense, hence Landry’s vicious baseline jam.
