abt a min clip of kobe after mia game: http://www.nba.com/2011/news/03/11/k...iref%3Anbahpt2
love this part: "He slapped basketballs in anger more than once after missing shots. He swore under his breath after misfiring. He even yelled at himself angrily after making a few shots."
it was a good win over dallas, but perhaps the bad shooting by the mavs was a plus for the lakers
"I'll just do what I always do: don't sleep, get treatment around the clock and I should be fine," Bryant said.
andrew BYNUM playing like a grown man has been the difference for us!
It was a nice victory over orlando yesterday. I still say that they shouldn't have traded for jRich, Arenas and Turkoglu...
All I can say is LAKERS FTW!!! KOBE FTW!!! 3PEAT on the way...AGAIN!!!
haha yeah they're on a roll right now since the ASG, losing only 1 since then.
kobe's nagging injuries(ankle, neck, fingers) have been apparent but he still continues to show he's not human and just spew out venom
the lakers are starting to take things a little more seriously and finally wanting to win again
bynum out 2 games was whack but he'll be back tomorrow, i hope the suspension doesn't prevent him from beasting like he has post-ASG. we need that andrew again and again if we want to advance deep into the postseason.
only cons: PUKE walton. . what was mitch thinking giving him a 6 year deal in '07?? and wishing pau could defend our basket like bynum does(yeah pipe dream), and stop losing rebs so easily and just grab them with two hands.
everyone knows puke has been bad, REAL BAD. but that airball 20 footer against phx WIDE-OPEN just put me over the edge, completely unacceptable. how is he on this coveted lakers team?
i seriously think if he wasn't on the lakers, he wouldn't even be playing in the nba. . he must have some real serious dirt on laker upper management
On the bright side for you guys, I'm pretty sure the Celtics handed you the rings by trading Perkins.
I'm still not too quick to pass up the Spurs/Lakers Western Finals matchup, that's going to be a pain, especially with Duncan just chilling this whole season. Injured right now, yeah, but he hasn't even played real basketball this whole season. They're on cruise control.
I'm interested to see how Chicago / Celtics / Miami plays out. Sad to admit that Miami is 2-0 against the Lakers this season, and they were playing putrid basketball both times. The C's are totally manageable now, but Chicago... Oh boy, Derrick Rose is going to score 80 on Derek Fisher. x_X
Vinyls here, vinyls there, vinyls EVERYWHERE!
I think Boston's done. Losing to the Pacers...really? I know Rondo is "injured" but even before that he was playing like crap after Perk was traded.
I hope the Lakers take one seed in the West, San Antonio can afford it.
3 peat 3 peat 3 peat!

My God. . the LAKERS are set to hire MIKE BROWN omg omg omg NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
so much for adelman or jvg. .
We had a world class chef preparing our meals. . Now we have a random guy who doesn't know how to scramble an egg trying to feed us.
i just feel mike brown is a joke, same with mike dunleavy. he did have success in clev with lbj but we're getting lbj's sloppy seconds and i hope brown knows what he's doing offensively and none of that kobe iso get out of his way stuff.
i feel like he kisses too much arse and would be afraid to rip into the players. also NOW FOR SURE, fisher will be back starting again bc you know mike brown cannot say no to fish
tbh, i'm slowly starting to accept it li'l by li'l, but i wouldn't be surprised if this becomes a disaster.
totally wanted dr buss to send the reigns to jeanie, but we are witnessing a shift in power as jim buss takes full control, he even just fired ronnie lester! jim seems like the kind of guy who will nvr let go of his pet project bynum, do anything to cut corners and thinks he knows what's best for the franchise without consulting others.
with the several asst coach names being thrown out as possibilities for the staff, that eases my mind as well.
idk, maybe it's just how his mouth is overly wide, and just sits there real big and open when he talks, kind of annoying. but if it's a jaw/mouth prob, then sry for being messed up lol
plus the players said they were shocked by the hiring and heard of the news the way us fans did. .
doubt kobe is impressed. mike brown said he has been texting kobe, texting? come on now, if kobe was satisfied with the hire i'm sure he would've picked up the phone and talked instead
only time will tell, /rant.
I didn't want JVG or Adelman. Maybe we didn't want Adelman because of the bad history of the Lakers clobbering his teams ( Kings/Rockets?? ). I also think his mouth is very wide and he shows his teeth a lot. I think defensively, he'll boost the lakers, because lets be honest, the Lakers can score points whenever they want. Defensively though, they need to get it. I predict with Brown as coach, Kobe will be playing a lot more, and putting up 30 a game. Might not be a great idea though. Maybe kobe will become a player/coach
As for Fish, i think unless LA can land a legitimate point guard (no, not steve blake), I don't see a problem with having Fish as a starter.
but he's 36 or so now, he's just too slow and his body won't do it anymore. he'll take charges for you for sure, great locker room and leader guy. but not starting pg material for the LA Lakers and hasn't been for several years now, only was bc phil was at the helm. . only my opinion of course.
updated laker rumors/facts:
-brian shaw will soon be interviewed by frank vogel for the indy asst coach position
-lakers willing to offer bynum/odom for DH
-lamar sent a very sexual text msg to a teammate
-lakers looking for a backup 5 and backcourt depth
in other news:
-gsw have offered monta ellis for DH
Derek Fisher, you will be missed. So glad we got rid of Luke Walton and Jason Kapono. So useless.
couldn't agree with you more... d-fish will be missed. as far as walton and kapono go, this is some serious good news. they are freeing up some good money from their books for a push at a solid small forward this off season.
