The radio voice of the Houston Rockets, Craig Ackerman, added insult to injury with his call after the final buzzer of last nights game. The last few seconds were a frenzy and the Lakers came up short 107-105, but the real story here is Ackerman. Kicking the Lakers while they are down, he drops one of the best lines we’ve ever heard from an NBA radio guy.
Only days after Kobe told Pau Gasol to stop whining and to “put on his big boy pants”, Ackerman drops this gem: ‘The Lakers have just pooped their big boy pants!’ The panic has officially set in out in Laker-land.
Kick back and enjoy the show.

Last week I told you to buy low on Pau Gasol. I gave you a reasoned explanation why. I scoured his career averages, looked at his current season averages and concluded that the only real difference was his poor FG, lack of FGA attempts vis-a-vis his career FGA and points per game. Of course, a poorer FG and less FGA per translate to less points per game! Reasonable explanation like...
