Prayer for the Lakers to regain the lead role in the NBA playoffs

Dear God of Sports,

This prayer comes in the name of healing and restoring the NBA.

The playoffs are now underway, blessed with tension and talent. What a sight. Thank you to all of us young people, starting with Ja Morant and Jordan Poole. Protect the health of the great, greedy Noah, known as Chris Paul.

The power you still give the Boston Celtics is the beauty to see.

But something is missing: the Los Angeles Lakers. Any post-season without the Lakers is like breaking a cosmic connection.

For all to be right in the Hoop Kingdom, the Lakers must be the place of playoff firmament; Like all but five seasons, from their birth in the late 1940s to 2014, when Kobe Bryant (maybe he and his beloved were quiet) began to retire.

The Lakers are loved and hated like no other team. They give extra attention, mood and legitimacy to the post-season. Nothing is the same without them in the mix.

The great spirit of the sport, the Lakers are now roaming the desert. Due to the epic collapse of this season, they have failed to reach the post-season in the last nine to seven years. Yes, they reached their highest point in 2020. But that season’s NBA Championship ended in a pandemic bubble. Two years ago it is now 20 years old. Few remember the parable leading up to this title today. Was it just a dream?

Basketball fans are abandoned. A generation walks in the desert that has never seen a Lakers strong team challenge Steph Carey and Golden State with everything.

But you never bother us, God of Sports. Against the backdrop of the playoffs, you pour in memories of the Lakers’ brilliance for everyone to see – at least those who subscribe to HBO Max and Apple TV +.

The opening of the documentary “They Call Me Magic” aired on Apple TV + last week.

Please allow good reviews.

Heal the hearts of the Lakers family, who are now living in distress because of another recent image, the HBO series “Victory Time.” It’s a classic Hollywood: a brilliant mix of facts, fiction and dramatic license, focused on the team’s showtime era of the 1980s. All this redundancy on the pitch, all this intrigue of the series, with those five leagues.

This series has sparked Lakersland insults and bluish pride.

Jerry West demanded to be rejected and apologized to HBO for his overlapping, imaginary way of portraying him.

Karim Abdul-Jabbar deliberately called the series an unscrupulous renderer, “with characters who look like real people like stick figures like Lego Han Solo Harrison Ford.”

Magic Johnson, the show’s central part, the showtime-era North Star, said he had not seen the series and that he was not telling the truth. Confusing, I know.

The Lord of the Hoops, the great giver of three-point shots, stay away from me, tell these basketball legends that their anger is out of place. But alleviate their problems. Remind them that few watch a series like “Earn Time” without this irrelevant joke.

Help them see the twist: The Lakers’ cult modern image was built in part on Hollywood smoke and mirrors. On the obscuration and scrolling of reality. Indeed, on magic.

The Lakers of the 1980s were more than just a team that had won five championships in a decade. Their uniqueness stemmed not only from these titles, but also from the power of ideas – the Forum Club, the Lakers girls, the aged movie stars in every other chair.

Remind the offended Lakers of the contraindications to their team narrative. Their story was considered a Boston Celtics crime in the 1980s and was drawn with simple twists: a cool, black team standing in a feeble, white way.

Yes, Boston had Larry Bird and other white stars, but he also had black Celtics like Dennis Johnson, Robert Perry, and Cedric Maxwell – legends themselves.

And which team had the black head coach? The Celtics, led by Kay C. Jones, have two of their three NBA crowns in those decades.

For this long duel, the city of Boston was often regarded as steeped in racism. But simple stories, as you know, sometimes obscure difficult truths. Los Angeles has always had its own problems with race.

Injustice is everywhere. Greatness is a more rare thing. The greatness of the 17 NBA championships founded the Lakers, even though mythology has always been a part of their history.

Oh, strong, in the name of St. Elgin, reduce the burden on the former Lakers who feel bad.

Then go back to the hards.

Restore LeBron James, his broken knees and 37-year-old back.

Remind him that all good things come his way – if time starts next season. The entertainment empire he is building in Los Angeles is a must see. But there was a movie mogul and the power of the community flowed primarily from the river of NBA championships.

Consider a clean-up for front office executives who have acquired Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and other Elder Lakers so far this season.

When you finish filling the Hollywood team, will you not mind doing an even bigger miracle in another basketball disaster?

God of Sports, do you remember Knicks?
