While Crowder and the Suns celebrate this series success, James and the Lakers should choose up the pieces.
As for the Lakers, James is not getting any more youthful, and his group quite much ran on fumes all season.
With James out, it is someone elses turn.

Phoenix won the division and made the No. 2 overall seed in the Western Conference. Though the Suns had actually not reached the NBA Playoffs once the decade prior, this is team certainly capable of getting to the Western Conference Finals, perhaps even winning the West for all we understand. As for the Lakers, James is not getting any younger, and his team basically worked on fumes all season.
As 7 of the 8 groups have actually punched their tickets into the second round, the rest of the playoffs will have a completely various feel to them. None of the 9 remaining groups, as the Dallas Mavericks vs. LA Clippers series has yet to be decided, have played in an NBA Finals in the last years, with Dallas being the last to do it in 2011. With James out, it is somebody elses turn.
No that the Lakers run out it, the Western Conference Playoffs are about to get back at wilder.

Jae Crowder sends LeBron James out of the playoffs by way of some great salsa dancing.
In the final seconds of Game 6 between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Phoenix Suns, Jae Crowder flaunted his incredible salsa dance transfers to make sure LeBron James understood he was going home.
Phoenix took Game 6 easily on the road over Los Angeles, 113-100. This is the first time James has not played in the conference semifinals on any playoff group he has ever been on. The Suns will have home-court advantage vs. the No. 3-seeded Denver Nuggets in the second round. While Crowder and the Suns commemorate this series triumph, James and the Lakers must choose up the pieces.
We might have seen a change-of-guard in the NBAs Pacific Division after this playoff series.
