It would be in very poor taste to gloat about the Los Angeles Lakers dominant performance in Game One of their Western Conference Finals series with the Phoenix Suns, especially since it's only one game.

But, I will take a moment to point out a few observations from the Lakers' 128-107 victory, and I promise to do it in the most objective manner that is possible.
