Aw, Here It Goes!
In the LOS ANGELES TIMES, J.A. Adande writes â€œthe game ball from win No. 900, which came Sunday courtesy of the Lakers' impressive, improbable, come-from-behind victory against the hottest team in the NBA, should be bronzed, encased and lighted like a museum showpiece because the Lakers' 23 victories this season represent as fine a coaching job as Phil Jackson has done. Things are going so well right now, with a 16-4 home record and a perfectly acceptable 7-7 record on the road, that his next task might be to temper the expectations of this young team and increasingly giddy fan base.â€œ
