After a long week of waiting for basketball to be played by the Suns, obviously what everyone needs is a Suns/Lakers preview. I am happy to oblige.
As a man who loves the Suns and abhors anything Los Angeles, it admittedly is no easy thing to look at the series objectively. Even so, there are many, including Lakers analyst Mychal Thompson, who believe that this series is simply a formality and that the Lakers shall indeed advance to defend their 2009 championship.
I, on the other hand, feel that these two teams are not unevenly matched. The series is bound to be a good one. Here is my breakdown of the matchups, from my view from my favorite chair (and sometimes, like for a part of game one, the view from my bed when two shows are recording on the DVR on my TV).
