Caption This Photo: Jordan Farmar fish hooks Jason Terry

I have a friend who loves to pull this move.  He'll sneak up behind you and deliver a mean fish hook.  That Jordan Farmar does it to Jason Terry without picking up his dribble is impressive.

Have at it!

Best move JFarm's made in months... At least he didn't turn him over.


JoN K,

Affirmative. Coach Coop said AM should start with Trev off the bench. I found that to be more interesting than the 4th quarter.

He tossed that up in the post game on LA local 7 yesterday. He has his reasons, and, I'd guess it has to do with bench production and game tempo change.

Don't know about you, but I'd kind of like to see it.

YOU CAN PICK YUOR NOSE BUT YOU CAN'T PICK YOUR FRIENDS NOSE:

As in the words of John Lennon:
you can shine you're shoes
and wear a suit
you can comb your hair
and look quite cute
you can hide your face
behind a smile
one thing you can't hide
is when you're crippled inside
you wear a mask
and paint your face
you can call yourself
the human race
you can wear a collar
and a tie
but the one thing you
can't hide is when you're
crippled inside
well now you know that your
cat has nine lives babe
nine loves to itself
but you only got one
and a dog life ain't no fun
mamma take a look outside.
you can go to church
and sing a hymn
judge me by the color
of my skin
you can live a lie until you die
one thing you can't hide
is when you're crippled inside.

Ladies Man

YOU CAN PICK YOUR NOSE BUT CAN'T PICK YOUR FRIENDS NOSE, I suppose there is an exception to rules:

As dear John Lennon would put it:
you can shine you're shoes
and wear a suit
you can comb your hair
and look quite cute
you can hide your face
behind a smile
one thing you can't hide
is when you're crippled inside
you wear a mask
and paint your face
you can call yourself
the human race
you can wear a collar
and a tie
but the one thing you
can't hide is when you're

well now you know that your

"Terry, say 'Hello!' to my little friend!"

Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.

GO LAKERS!

Problems with your 3 point shot?

Hooked on Terry-honics!

C'mon Jet! Do I have to drag you everywhere?

Jordan Farmar: Get the (expletive the "F" word) out of my way!

Jason Terry: OW! Ref aren't you going to call that foul??

Ref (not seen): Hey no harm no foul. Home team gets the nod in calls.

-KB Blitz

Pick this!

"I think we're gonna need a bigger....bench"

Farmar blows by Jason Terry on the drive, but feels so bad he decides to bring him along for the ride.

I wouldn't mind Phil experimenting with AM either as the starter or with the mob. The way things are going, I don't think you'll see that as much as you'll see Jordan, Shasha, and Luke's minutes reduced, especiallly in the play-offs.

Jordan Farmar dribbles in front of Jason Terry while proclaiming, "Let's see you hit a 3 with a finger up your lip! Can't do it, can you?!"

JF= This is how Luke and I pick up bunnies at the mansion, Trust me it works.

Im beginning to not like the 3 or 4 new threads a day strategy. It's really hard to keep a conversation going and people end up posting twice..At least if you do it, you should send a simple "courtesy" message that a new thread is up..I know I think you said once that it's something you won't do, but really how hard is it to just say "A new thread is up"? Other sites do it, and it's nice.

The threads are actually not getting as big as they used to...I honestly don't see the real point in making multiple new threads if most of the people are just going to continue their conversation from the previous one.

It's obvious from this thread that every day you are "hunting" for a new thread topic no matter how outrageous or silly it is just for the point of having another thread topic. If there is no news-worthy news, why can't we just continue on the same thread?

Vman,

I'm not sure I'd like to see it.

I haven't seen enough good play from Adam Morrison to feel confident that he would excel at that role.

What do we play for? RINGS!!!!!

Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.

GO LAKERS!

I'll teach you how to dribble if I have to lead you around like a fish!

In all seriousness, ignoring the advice of our beloved Michael Cooper, why on God's green Earth would we start Adam Morrison right now?

It makes absolutely no sense to me.

What do we play for? RINGS!!!!

Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.

GO LAKERS!

I think Smush's bid is gab-worthy myself.

Reminds me...we started this guy for how many years?!

Jordan Farmar: Taking the Idea of Being Like Fisher a Little Too Literally

Fishing was Terry-ble Today

Farmar to Terry: Don't Gimme No Lip

I Told You Chewing Tobacco Wasn't a Good Idea

Wow! I Never Saw a Loogie of That Size. And It Says Spaulding On It!

You got picked, now let's roll.

Zen, now that that mention it I can't believe I'm a grown a@@ man playing this caption game. Thanks for opening my eyes.

Magia32,

LOL. funny..I don't mind some of these threads, but come on..We are still talking about Cooper from 3 threads ago.LOL. I think if it gets over 100 posts, then maybe start a new thread with something like this..Or start new thread immediately if something newsworthy is truely out there..Just a thought.

Jet: Jordan, you are an exaggerated D-Leaguer at best.
Farmar: Yes-I know. I'm only here because our ownership was dumb enough to think Kobe could win another title without a good bench. We all know Boston is going to win again anyways.
Jet: Yes-exactly...you doing anything after the game Jordan?
Farmar: Nah..just sniffing Kobe's undies, that's about it..
Jet: Cool, my ugly niece need's a date to her prom

AK/BK

can u address what Kenny and Charles said last week on TNT where they said... that if Lebron and Kobe switched places.. the Lakers would win 70 games. I'm beginning to think that that is true.. the Laker players are all good.. but can't Kobe make them even better? i mean look at the Caves team.... individually they're not spectacular. but us... shouldn't we be even better then?

we beat the caves twice, which makes me feel better. but we also lost to orlando twice. anyways, can you just give your thoughts on that idea that if lebron and kobe switch places, the lakers would be even better.

thanks.

Answering a question on the previous thread:

I'm totally frustrated by the MVP talk, myself. I just wish the criteria were the same from year to year. The year Dirk won it, it was supposed to be the best player on the team with the best record, even if he didn't have that great of a statistical year. When Nash won it, it was supposed to be the dude who "made his teammates better." Now people are throwing around DWade as a candidate.

I know it's just my own paranoia, but it feels like these guys are changing the rules every year just so they don't have to give it to Kobe. Dirk won it over him in 2006 because of their respective teams' record, despite the fact that Kobe had his 81 point game that year and dragged the Lakers into the playoffs when they had no business being there. Now everyone's pimping DWade? Seriously?? WTF happened to team record?

When Nash went back-to-back, the thought was that Nash had just as good a year, and so deserved it. In other words, since the reigning MVP didn't lose it, he should keep it. Where are those people now? Wouldn't you say Kobe's year this year is at least as good as last year, if not better? The truth was, that was the only way they could keep it out of Kobe's hands that year, too.

LeBron might have had a great year, but Kobe is the reigning MVP. He's had at least as good a year this year. When they have played heads up, Kobe has gotten the better of LeBron, and did it with a dislocated finger in one game. Kobe has a better all-around game than LeBron, and has led his team to more consistent success.

All those years Jordan one, did ONE SINGLE person talk about how Jordan had "more help" than the other candidates?? Since when did having a better team around you make you less valuable to your team's success? Oh, right - the year that it was the only way they could keep Kobe from winning it.


Jon K

I was as surprised as you are to hear Coop's opinion, but I do respect the man as I know you do so it made me wonder.

I think it's more about Trev changing game tempo with his defense off the bench and the fact that, I'm guessin', Coop is underwhelmed with Luke as a starter. It also follows that he's seen more of AM than us and likes what he sees?

The why of it must come from a coaches view of recent bench play. Who knows?

Maybe the Kambros can get him to elaborate.

I guess theres more than one way to GIVE SOMEBODY THE FINGER

zen,
I think I posted on one thread, but it got moved to the next, so don't blame the threaders....maybe they do it cuz they want to keep that one conversation alive....just roll with it....
?
caption for the picture...."Where's the foul"..on Terry......obviously it's a violation to try to impede your opponents progress by grabbing his fingers with your teeth.

...or one game suspension for Farmar for "unnatural"
movement, akin to Kobe and his infraction last year.

Morrison hobbles...don't put him in that pressure situation....

zen-

First of all, new thread is up.

I understand your perspective but just don't agree. First of all, there's nothing to keep people from carrying on whatever discussions they were having just because a new thread goes up. There's no rule that says people have to stop talking with each other, or that it's particularly hard to move the conversation to the next thread if you'd like (the Coop convo is a good example). But beyond that, many people enjoy a variety of posts. Some people (apparently not you) enjoy fun, silly stuff like photo captioning. Not everything needs to be "hard news."

Beyond that, there's a larger audience out there who aren't necessarily stopping to comment frequently. New material is an important part of the "blog" experience, and why they're popular. We work hard not to post without putting up something that would have appeal for different sections of the audience.

Thanks for the note.

BK

pinkalink,

Don't worry about what Charles or Kenny say...They change their minds from week to week...If Lebron has a triple double, Lebron is king..If Kobe scores 50 and the Lakers win by 20, then all of a sudden he is the king..

They are always about who is playing well at the time..Im not sure what you call them..

kambrothers,

Nice "politically correct" answer..But sorry, Im not buying it. How would you know everyone likes the little variety of threads? Did you take a poll? You force it on us and then people except it..But do you really know if the majority "likes" the format?

I'm just saying other sites have the courtesy to say another thread is up and if we can at least have that, it makes it tolerable.

I don't mind silly posts once in a while..I just dont see the point when everyone ignores it half the time and continues the conversation they were having on the previous thread! LOL.. That's should be a pretty good hint.


BK,
Thanks for taking the time to respond though..I know you are a busy guy.

Pinkalink,

I know you addressed this question to AK/BK, so I hope you don't mind that I responded to your question.

I tend not to agree with Kenny and Charles for a couple of reasons:

1. The systems that are run in LA and Cleveland are totally different. If Lebron was in LA under Phil Jackson he would have to use the triangle offense which depends more on a players ability to think then his athletic ability, even more so in the triangle offense Lebron would not dominate the ball the way he does now.

I think most of us agree that the more one person dominates the ball in the triangle the worst it is for the team.

2. I think comparing Kobe and Lebron using two different offensive systems doesn't provide a clear picture of how they would perform is they switched teams.

3. The one thing we tend to overlook in LA is how often Kobe passes the ball in good spots to players who just flat out miss layups, chippies and jump shots. So if our players shot better Kobe would have more assists and as far as rebounding, he's a shooting guard whose #1 or #2 for shooting guards but I digress.

4. On the face of it Charles and Kenny's observation seems like it should be true based on Lebron and Kobe's numbers but overall Kobe plays less minutes, is only slightly lower in both assists and rebounds than Lebron and he doesn't dominate the ball the way Lebron does. So I tend to disagree with them because I think they are comparing two players without much evaluation of their overall statistics and the very different offensive systems they are currently playing in. It sounds good on its face but I well remember that Kobe went to the playoffs with Smush and Kwame and a bunch of youngsters in the tough Western Conference. Smush is not playing anymore and Kwame barely plays.

zen-

No problem. Hopefully this helps you understand our perspective.

Over the years, we've had people complain about threads being too long, too short, too many comments, not enough comments. Too many new posts, not enough new posts. Thus we do what we think is best based on what we think creates a vibrant, entertaining, and informative website, something we judge in part based on the commentary we get on posts, and from the traffic overall on the site.

While sometimes it gets frustrating when people ignore the topic as presented by the thread (c'mon, at least give us one or two thoughts before moving on! (haha)) it's par for the course. We don't force people to talk about anything in particular. It's organic, and one of the reasons the site is fun to read. We have a lot of smart, informed basketball fans here, and if they think of something good, who are we to say they shouldn't change the subject. But again, not everyone stops to comment. And even those who do often like something new to read or think about.

Bottom line, you can't please everyone, no matter what you do.

As for notifying people when there's a new post, I do it when I remember, but as my wife will tell you, memory is not my strong suit.

BK

Not now, Jet. I'm busy.

Pinkalink,

"AK/BK, can u address what Kenny and Charles said last week on TNT where they said... that if Lebron and Kobe switched places.. the Lakers would win 70 games. can you just give your thoughts on that idea that if lebron and kobe switch places, the lakers would be even better."

I have no idea which team would be better if these guys switched teams. Neither does Kenny nor Charles. Nor does anybody, because it's a complete hypothetical impossible to "prove." And an irrelevant hypothetical at that, because it ain't gonna happen, nor does it have jack to do with how either improves their present teams Thus, I don't really care, nor have I ever given any thought.

I'm not trying to be dismissive of your question (I realize you didn't originate the topic), but to be honest, I've always felt the "If Player X and Player Y switched teams, which would be the better team?" question is really stupid (unless it's just fun bar debate). In particular, it's stupid if you're using that criteria topick an MVP (which I'm pretty sure Kenny and Charles had been doing). It has absolutely nothing to do with how either guy ACTUALLY PLAYED, which should be the basis of judgment.

Seriously, think about how illogical this is. Letting your vote be swayed by the IMAGINARY results of whether LBJ would click better with LO, or if Kobe could run a better pick and roll with Big Z? Who cares! What does that have to do with anything relevant? It blows my mind that people would give so much credence to criteria equivalent of those "body switching" movies from the 80's, with Kobe as Judge Reinhold and LeBron as Fred Savage.

I don't mean to rant, but this is one of my big pet peeves come MVP time, because it's an inexplicably common discussion point.

AK

I like 2/3 new threads a day. It gives me something to read on my breaks.

zen - Your post about new threads getting in the way of conversations between people who comment here is weird for two reasons:

First, someone already twisted the K Bros arms weeks ago about letting everyone know about a "new thread" and they've been doing it.

Secondly, this isn't a forum. Each new post by the KBros is an article, not a thread. If you want to have a conversation with someone, go to a MESSAGE BOARD or FORUM and start a thread for that conversation. If you want to use the comments section for a reason other than what it was designed for, you can't then complain about it. That's like going to a movie theater to read a book and then asking them to turn down the volume and turn up the lights so you can read.

AK,

I understand your annoyance with the "body switching" argument during MVP time.

How do you believe we SHOULD evaluate the MVP question?

Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.

GO LAKERS!

Jon K,

Honestly, I think you should just try to figure out which player had the season that best exemplifies "MVP" in your mind (everyone's criteria is unfortunately not the same), lay out a case, and stand by your decision. In a nutshell, that's how voters should do it.

I've always felt that a lot of nonsense happens because people are afraid to truly attempt justifying their choice, so they come up with B.S. rationales (like the "body switching" question) that do more to shoot down someone else than actually support a case. And aside from that criteria often being irrelevant, going there is totally unnecessary. All joking and team loyalties aside, it's not particularly difficult "justifying" Kobe OR LBJ. They're both obviously worthy. Or Howard or Duncan maybe even Wade. As long as you're selecting someone reasonable, it's not a big deal, so man up and make a case.

I just hate seeing people focus as much on irrelevant criteria as how they ACTUALLY PLAYED AND AFFECTED THEIR TEAMS, which should the #1 (and only) criteria.

AK

BK,

People that don't want new threads are boring. And they have a weird need for attention. If someone wants to continue a conversation with you, they'll find you. If they don't, then you're out of luck.

Buying into the hype of always having to make your newest post in the newest thread and otherwise being fearful you'll lose your conversation partner is just silly.

If the conversation means that much to you, it's on your to continue it.

I don't type this idea to disparage anyone or their opinions. I don't necessarily think they're d-bags, but I do think there is a strong likelihood they haven't through this idea through.


Besides, more thread is good for the blog czars, right? More traffic, more variety, probably keeps the blog more active for we the folks that participate in it.


Mbenga saying "tacos" on a youtube and this fishhook picture of Farmar are kind of fun, particularly with how frustrated people have been with Farmar's play of late.

AK, Fan of the Mamba

thanks for replying.

Fan of the Mamba, i think you're right, the caves and lakers do have different systems. and now that i think about it, i don't think lebron would make the lakers better than they are.

and AK, thanks for your thoughts.

Zen & others,

Well before we suggested two threads a day. On a game day including the live blog, make it 3 that's reasonable enough. You see I think AK/BK has a study on the number of ticks or visit based on thread, I surmised the more threads, the more ticks they'll obtain. To them, it is business and to us, it is pleasure and addiction. LOL! On this current practice, we get a repetition of post ideas if not re-post parlayed to the readers. In this blog, you don't need too many threads, sometimes posters themselves create their own subject matters and debatable ideas. During the formative years of this blog when we have only one or two threads per day, people can follow with the discussion, now you have to go to the bottom of the page and see those next, next or previous, previous why not put also one on the top also so that we don't have to scroll downwards. Why so many threads, when threads can be combined into one. After several hours doing this, it develops carpal or finger arthritis, I hope the moderator will consider those viewpoints. Technology is the way to go to make life easier & not create more complications. Blogging should be technology-friendly not only for the moderators, advertisers but also to the readers and posters. Whether it is print, audio-video, facebook and blog, the AIDA concept or dicipline always work that is: attract, interest, desire and action.

The NBA is a trash sport. But let me see you again in six months for a cleaning and followup exam.
