"Don't Sleep On Us!" - Random Phoenix Fan


Hey.  Guess what.  We're not sleeping on you.  If you were to make a poll here asking what SBN'ers thought would happen in the Suns series, my guess would be you'd get about 10% saying Lakers 4-0, 40% saying Lakers 4-1, 20% saying Lakers 4-2, 15% saying Lakers 4-3, and 15% probably picking the Suns somewhere.

A Laker fan picking LA in 5 doesn't mean they aren't respecting Phoenix.  It actually means almost exactly the same thing as picking the Suns in 6 as you guys seem to have done unanimously over on BSotS (except...the opposite...get it?).  What it means is that the Lakers will protect their first two home games, steal one of their first two away games, and then close the series out at home.  What does Suns in six mean?  That the Suns will protect their first two home court games, steal one of the first two away games, and close the series out on their homecourt. 

I'm just throwing this out there because already we have Suns fans coming here just like the Jazz did before our last series telling us not to count them out because something something Goran Dragic, something something J Rich/Frye 3 balls, or something something Grant Hill defense.  We know.  Once we start doing our series preview stuff here I invite all Suns fans to carefully read our author's analysis and debate/question away.  Just please, pleaseeeee when we do our roundtable predictions and all of our writer's unanimously pick LA in five don't come with that weak "don't sleep on us!" stuff that we have had the pleasure of reading literally every round of the playoffs thus far.
