The main difference between these two teams:

The Big 3 don't mind sharing the spotlight

Kobe does

KB like Dirk is a great regular season player, but don't confuse that with being the best player in the NBA. The regular season doesn't count towards greatness. The regular season attains the home court advantage, and Boston got that.

The Lakers let the refs take them out the game, I dont blame them though the refs should have never even have the power or the decision to take teams out of games.

Nah, Kobe is the real deal. Boston just has the better starting 5 and better bench.

Good thing I saw how this series would go and put money on Boston for the first 2 games. Gonna be good to get more as the Lakers take the next 3.

Lakers better not get outhustled at home or this will be a quick series.
