Lakers stay alive!

The Lakers won last night, and are therefore still in the Finals. Whew! That's good news.

This may be a test of my Zero Sum Karma Theory of Professional Sports Championships. The Zero Sum Karma Theory says that there is only so much karma allotted to each city for professional sports championships, so if a city wins one, that city uses up its karma for the year, so there won't be any more championships for that city that year.

The Zero Sum Karma Theory has never been really clearly defined, nor has it ever really been investigated to see if it is historically accurate. So I don't know if it's true or not. For example, the Red Sox won the World Series last year, but that was 2007. This current NBA season started in 2007, so does that count?

I think I'm going to define the Zero Sum Karma Theory by calendar years, i.e. the karma kicks in on January 1 and kicks out on December 31. So, by that standard, since this is a new calendar year, the Red Sox win last year would not count against the Celtics this year. Which is a bummer for the Lakers. But the Lakers still have a chance! Just two more games!
