Take a quick peak over at the Lakers site

Although I am a Blazers fan, please rest assured that this is not my attempt at stirring the pot eve further between Lakers fans and Rockets fans.  I just wanted to point out an observation that I had.  If you have a couple extra minutes, swing over to http://www.silverscreenandroll.com/ really quick and you might notice the difference between how those on that site are decribing the events from game 2 and the way most posts on this site have described them.  From what I've seen, few on this site are trying to justify any poor actions on the part of the Rockets players in game 2.  While many have gripes about what might have led up to those events, most also think that Artest went a bit too far in how he handled the situation.  That right there is the difference.  The posts at the Lakers site, including the front page recap, are full of not only appologists for the actions of players like Derek Fisher, but are also APPLAUDING his actions and using them as a source of pride.  As if poor sportsmanship were some sort of status barometer for them and Derek Fisher was the last player that they were waiting for to finally come around to the L.A way of doing business.  Kudos to the majority of fans on this site for having a clear vision of what makes a respectable fan (and athlete for that matter).

No cursing in title. No pirated material, such as links to online game streams. Do not cut/paste entire sections of content from other websites. Thanks.
