Thursday 05/07 A.M. Quickie:
Kobe, Artest, Rondo, Johan, Big 12, More

I like the Lakers as underdog assholes more than regal favorites. It reminds you that Kobe's game is as much psychology as physiology -- same with Phil Jackson.

Ron Artest blowing up? You could see it coming. It's almost cliche. But it certainly makes Game 3 all the more intriguing. The Rockets don't have any fear of LA -- but they might be too intentionally willfully resistant.

Lakers-Rockets -- now a bruising battle out of the Eastern Conference circa mid-90s -- leads today's SN column.

More you'll find:
*Rondo: Better than Pierce. Better than Allen. More valuable than KG.
*Johan Santana: Better than Greinke. (Oh no you didn't!)
*Big 12: Coaches deliver an epic F-U to Texas.
*Pengins: Not dead yet! (I said "yet.")
*Calipari: Yikes, that's a really good recruiting class.

Complete column here. More later.
