When the Cavs played the Celtics (it seems like eons ago), all the announcers could talk about was how 3 superstars would eventually defeat 1. This, I thought was perhaps the most absurd reasoning I had ever heard, and I don't know why Z doesn't get any respect. Now, with the Celtics playing the Lakers, they don't talk about this 3 vs. 1 thing as much, though it still exists in the back of my mind (in my mind Gasol is similar to Z). My final thought is... what if they're right... and they get away with such ridiculous reasoning.
Also, remember when LeBron kept talking about how the series doesn't start until a team wins on the road? And the Cavs lost without the series even beginning!
