Pau Gasol declares Phil Jackson no thespian himself

Turnabout being the essence of fair play, of course.

Tuesday,
 I asked a sincerely innocuous question regarding Pau Gasol being potentially "gun shy" about risking re-injury to his troublesome hamstring with a return to the court. Phil Jackson, rarely reluctant to tweak a player, asked if I meant that Gasol was a "hypochondriac" and a "baby."  Taking it up a notch, he proceeded to tweak his All-Star forward's performance on CSI: Miami.  After kidding that Gasol actually injured himself in a scene where he pulled an accident victim from of a burning car and expressing disbelief that people even watch this show in the first place, his advice given to Pau was shared:

"I told him to keep his night job."

Naturally, El Spaniard was informed of el smack during Wednesday's practice. He took it all in stride, focusing on the good feedback he received from "most of the population" and the enjoyment gained from the experience. "If Phil doesn't like it, it's all good," shrugged Gasol.  Another writer mentioned that Phil's not really one to talk, since his most recent gig in front of the camera involved no talking whatsoever. That's when Pau offered a jab of his own --"well, his acting wasn't too good, either"-- followed by an impression of his coach's handiwork.

Not bad.

Not bad at all.

And as Pau noted, "He got paid, for sure."

What can I do... I LOVE Pau. I mean... nobody can even come close to my worshipping about Mighty Kobe The God, but really, Pau makes my heart rejoice. I even loved his CSI thing. *SERIOUSLY*.
Can't wait to have you back playing. I will certainly wake up in the core of italian night to catch this much welcomed return. :)

I posted before how valuable Pau was to the team and his absence validated my point. Now let's hope there won't be another European championship in the horizon afterall Pau is not ironman.

What if none of us are really us, but just a creation of the K-Bros? No, that's impossible. But that's just what I would say, if I wasn't me!!Posted by: exhelodrvr | November 18, 2009 at 10:02 PM

WTF Ex? Then that could mean only one thing. The Lakers are really the bad guys and the celtics the good guys. which..Which means that they are The Freakin Boston Celtics and Lakers who the Hell are we?

OH THE HUMANITY!!!

AK,

Great entry. Lakers humor to wake up to on a game day is always welcome, especially considering how serious most of our blog posts have been lately. Having Pau back tonight may give the Lakers the lift they've been looking for.

The best part of having Pau back may be the elimination of some of the horrible floor lineups PJ has been experimenting with.

I think Jacqueline has it right. The season begins tonight. Go Lakers!

Who cares about this? Man, play ball and get this season rolling and get the bench(flops)mob together!!!! Time to get over what happened last yr cause everyone is going to bring their A-game when they play the Lakers.

WTF?...ZairaAmaterasu, OUT FREAKIN STANDING!!!
OUR PAU IS BACK NBA YOU GONNA BE IN TROUBLE, HEY LA, HEY LA
OUR PAU IS BACK!!!!!

*REPOST*

The "Refrigerator Rule." I like it. We should make a Refrigerator Rule bandwagon...

Two and three years ago, our bench was like that. Give them a 20+ point fourth quarter lead and they used to finish clubs out. Back then, it didn't even matter if the other team had their starters in trying to stage a comeback. Kobe used to be posted on the bench with bags of ice taped to his knees. That's when the were the bench mob. That's when Sasha used to shoot lights-out. Remember when Luke Walton led the NBA in three point shooting for over 3/4ths of the season?

This is almost the same group of dudes, and it just doesn't happen anymore. Like I said previously, the bench is the main reason this Laker team has no hope of tying Chicago's win total record for the season. Our starters have to play in too many fourth quarters. They are going to get worn down somewhat. Although PJ will manage that to preserve their legs for the playoffs. That is going to necessarily mean sacrificing regular season games.

A couple of years ago, PJ would from time to time refuse to put the starters back in when the bench let a lead slip away, forcing them to figure it out on their own. He would say, "the game was theirs to win or loose...blah, blah, blah". Does anyone remember that? He used to actually entrust the final outcome to the bench.

Can you imagine him doing that this season?

Like I said before, what's up with the bench?

My assessments:

Sasha still can't shoot in a game. Though, he's better this year than last, he is not as good as his contract year by any measure.

Farmar's shooting hasn't improved, though his court awareness has, and his decision making is marginally better.

Powell can shoot way better than I can ever remember him shooting. However, he isn't a guard, so it sometimes goes all for naught because he doesn't dictate flow, or tempo from his position. Also, his passing isn't that great.

Mbenga is an excellent defensive center. He seems to have really calmed down and slowed down and allowed the the game to come to him. He gets (marginally) fewer fouls which allows him to stay on the floor longer. Plus, he now knows that PJ trusts him, so he isn't trying to prove himself all the time. He used to be Kwame 2.0 because of all the rushing. He shows what Kwame could be if that dude ever listened to a coach. However, his contributions do not help out on the offensive end of the floor that much. He is definitely intelligent and coach-able. On a different team, he might actually crack a starting rotation, especially in the East where most of the centers are defensive centers anyway.

Luke is injured again. He has been injured for at least a week or more, but only got around to finding out what the problem is recently. Sometimes you hurt your team when you play hurt. That is what's happened here. We needed Luke to be LO while LO is starting. A task for which he is expertly suited -- when healthy.

Brown. What can brown do for you? Apparently, everything. Only he and Powell are consistent offensive threats off the bench. But, even he gets sloppy sometimes. And, when he is hot, he doesn't shoot enough.

Which brings up a really good point, the second unit does not like to feed the hot hand. Never, this whole season, do they milk the guy who's puttin' the rock in the hole. Its like the rest of them get jealous and fall into some kinda, "I gotta get mine" attitude.

When Drew's on the floor with them and he's got it goin' on, he'll get maybe two looks. If Brown is on fire, he'll get maybe three or four shots. Sasha consistently shoots early in the clock. Most of Farmar's shots come outside the offense. Rarely is there an assist on a made Farmar field goal. Everyone here KNOWS I love Farmar. But, that part of his game has got to change.

So, what's up with the bench? Why are these things happening?

Could it be the loss of Rambis? He worked with all the bigs all the time, plus he was one of the shooting coaches. Do we remember that possibly the best overall shooter on the whole staff, including coaches and players was Rambis -- of all people? Well, he doesn't work for us anymore.

Maybe our shooting woes aren't that big a coincidence.

Anyway, just some thoughts.

--Fearless

Pau is back.

Shouldn't one of our literary types be butchering the Phil Collin's song ,
even as I type?

Don't act like you don't know! The song you sh0uld be working on is:

"In the air tonight"

My eyes weep with pleasure.

*chuckle*

Now we can get on with the *real* integration process.

Bynum, Pau, Artest & Kobe on the floor together. Catch as catch can on the
PG position. Who's working the post?

I've been waiting for this moment since the signing of Artest.

I hope this Gasol-Jackson acting rivalry doesn't cause chemistry problems.

What? Edwin doesn’t get me? AAAAAAAUUUGGGH [runs around…stops running around, shrugs]

Edwin- I meant that I don’t think I or anybody else could imitate you, ever. You are one of a kind. Take that how you will. As for modern language- Impostor- one who claims to be somebody they are not. Imposter- one who posts under someone elses name. Ok, I made that up on the spot, but it seems to work.

LakerTom (if that is your real name)- creative? Doesn’t seem to describe this guy at all. But it is sort of an interesting question- what makes ‘phred’ a person? What makes ‘LakerTom” a person? Aren’t we all just creating some kind of mask? And if somebody else can become us better than we can, what does that mean? Sadly, I don’t think this person is going to help us figure that out, as all of his comments in my name were boring and weak, not really trying to imitate me so much as just writing some junk and using my name. But I have hope for the guy/person.

Hobbitmage (if that is your real name) - I’m working on some song ideas, but I haven’t seen the CSI episode and I’m crazy busy this week. Why don’t you give it a try? Be the lyricist you want to read. Embiggen yourself.


Dave M- don't remember the name. I was reading this blog sporadically for a year or two before I started reading all of the comments though, so i was probably around in the background somewhere.

So the current Ex is not Ex and never drove a helo?

I haven't been who I am for quite some time and most people prefer it, but that's another story...

That other guy recently and incorrectly posted "Pau is the answer".
Pau is actually the "reason".

He's the reason the Lakers emerged from the abyss of kinda good. He's the guy that created the "record since Pau Gasol" stat.

His return marks the beginning of the season. Let's roll.

REGARDING THE IMPOSTOR THEORY...

Everyone on this blog knows that AK/BK are witty and sassy...

Witty sounds an awfully lot like the word, "Wordy"...

Everyone on this blog knows that LAKERTOM is wordy...

Has anyone ever checked to see if AK/BK and LAKERTOM are, , , gulp ~ THREE IN ONE?!? (JON K should expound on this theory with his theological background)

IF there are THREE IN ONE... then the powers of impostorization no doubt lie within that blogging diety.

Mike

I hope this Gasol-Jackson acting rivalry doesn't cause chemistry problems.

Posted by: exhelodrvr | November 19, 2009 at 07:43 AM

they both succeeded as being the tallest member of the cast.

also they hold in their hand a communication device (an extension of the ball?). one has a ZEN touch, the other a desperate voice. fiction imitates life.

i find the "myTouch" commercial pretentious. even "whoopi" looks like she never acted in her life. or maybe they r just too mesmerized by the little novelty. they have to be from a different planet or T-Mobile did not get the message that there is an ipod/phone out there.

HEY HOBBITMAGE

I heard that he’ll be coming to the Staples tonight, oh Lord
And I've been waiting for this moment, just to catch a sight of Pau Lord

THE NBA WHERE GASOL HAPPENS

KOBE BRYANT GOAT AND THAT'S NO BULL
Laker fans are content to say, Kobe is as good as the great MJ
This the MJ fans don’t like, they say Kobe is nothing compared to Mike
Yes Mike was great truth be told, but it’s kobe’s time let his story unfold
You can praise one without downing the other, But Kobe’s greatness they try to smother
There are things that Kobe has done, Mike never could not even when he was young
The 81 points Kobe scored in a game, Kind of makes the 69 by Mike seem tame
Kobe outscored the opposing team for 3 quarters, Mike never did it not even sort of.
Kobe won playoff games with Kwame Brown, Mike drafted him # 1 then tore him down
The league & the Ref’s gave Mike the star calls, But for Kobe it don’t work that way yall
Yes he’s gotten a few calls some didn’t get, but Mike got all the calls until the day he quit
Do you remember MJ’s last title run? Where was the call for pushiing Shandon Anderson?
MJ’s coach never ripped him in the press, Yet 9Rings blamed Kobe for the 2004 Title mess.
Kobe never punched a player on a team he played for? How about MJ, what say you Steve Kerr?
When Magic retired, he was held in such esteem, that he was allowed to own a part of the Laker team
When Jordan retired what did the Bulls give, They stuck it in all the way, that’s right he got the shiv.
So Bulls I salute you, you knew he had no Class, MJ’s HOF speech showed him to be an @zz
This poem has no grand design it is what it is, A simple plea to give Kobe, Respect that is his
Tonight when you sit down, to watch the Lakers play, Realize you’re watching, the greatest of today
Kobe’s the greatest player of today it’s true, Kobe’s the man, I’m a Laker Fan & who the hell are you


Mike,

Keep bringing it, Larry. We love you.

OUCHH! OUCCHH!

Ex/Mamba24,

Out of curiosity, your suspicion could be true that half of the names here are just creation of K Bros to jack up activity. Judging from the posters who are no longer postings like AK, Fatty, Faith, Tully, Xodus, Pslakerfan, LakerSTH and most of all the basketball mind, Mike T. They need to replace those posts with recycled posts. At a given day, if you keep on reading recycled praises/criticisms on Bynum and Farmar it becomes boring because we keep repeating ourselves without new ideas, it's full of jocundry, egotism and homerism. We all sound like Joel Myers. Unlike Chick, even in his old age, he's excitable and we learn something new. Our blog is turning into a religious event and our Gods are Bynum, Farmar, Brown and Kobe. I noticed even the greenies get bored with the repeated posts. Let's step up plate folks, turn those junky posts into more creative and acceptable to all readers.

I WILL BOW BEFORE THEM BUT THERE IS ONE MAN WHO NEVER WILL!!
SUPER JON K.!!!

EDWIN GUECO, I demand that you prove who you are. for all we know you may be that diabolical mischief maker Butler. As for poor phred he was replaced by those damn zombies 2 years ago. The only way I know EX is EX. is because the man has the fastest Right Jab Lib in the business. you know sometimes I myself wonder if I am really Mamba24, but then I try on my Purple and Gold thong and all is right with the world. ROFLMFAO!!

Mamba24 is the only true thespian!!!

LakerTom,
"Can a KamBros reality show with cross marketing with the Kardashians be far away?"

I'd try out for the Bruce Jenner role, but I have too many wrinkles on my face.

I BEG YOUR PARDON SIR!!! AK & BK are my gods and I place no other god's before them you blasphemer. You are only able to exist do to their mercy, but woe unto you disbeliever. Now stop it, Stop it now before you burn in the Green Septic fires forever.


KOBE IS KIRK, PAU IS SPOCK…
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Between posts last night, I watched Star Trek for the first time on my TV.
Kobe Bryant is definitely the James T. Kirk of the Starship Showtime 2.
Pau Gasol is obviously Spock, the alien from Spain and first officer.
Haven’t figured out the rest of the crew or who would be Drew.
Great job casting for the movie. Thought it was the best Star Trek ever.

Going back to the Starship Showtime 1, Magic was James T. Kirk.
And the great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was definitely First officer Spock.

REGARDING THE IMPOSTOR THEORY

Thank you Laker Mike, finally somebody is spelling the word correctly.

It is important that we correct ourselves, if we used "imposter", another poster will pick it up and add suffix to it by using the word "imposterized". Of course, we know its meaning but they are wrong words. Our foreign bloggers could be laughing at us, Americans using (repeatedly) wrong spelling on our own language.

Mamba24,
"Then that could mean only one thing. The Lakers are really the bad guys and the celtics the good guys. which..Which means that they are The Freakin Boston Celtics and Lakers who the Hell are we?"

Oh, it's worse than that. This is actually a dream - you are going to wake up in a second in a cold sweat, realize that it's December 2005, and Kwame Brown is the starting center. And you will have to read through 873 posts about his magical calves.

EDWIN GUECO LISTEN TO ME CAREFULLY.
Mike T. made the fatal mistake of actually believing he, yes he was equal to our blog gods. And where is he today. he's on some panhandling website raving about "magnificent calves" every now and then I stop by to give the site a hit so the poor deluded man can sustain himself. GET right with the blog gods before it's to late. All laker blog believers will be caught up in the 4th Dynasty Rapture while you, you heretic will be forced to remain here reading Jackson journal for all eternity. OH THE HUMANITY!!!

Go lakers.

Yes my post is lame but oh well..thats wat i do

Mamba24,

I can prove that I am the real one because of the missing words, missing phrases, typos, quotation marks, and hanging modifiers. There could be Guerco but only one Gueco. Frankly, even the US Immigration would have hard time finding who the hell is Edwin Gueco.

Mamba24

merci.

Let's get it started!

Does anyone, besides me, get the feeling that the East is Wide Open?

Seriously. Don't you get the feeling that Atlanta or Chicago could pull upsets
and come out of the East? It's early in the season, but the Shaq trade isn't
paying huge benies. [ as expected ]. Orlando/Dwight is not coming out as hard
as expected. [ shocker ] I still don't believe in Paula Pierce and the lepers ...
sorry. Leprechauns.

I guess this is why they play the games.

Go Kobe!
Go Lakers!!!

... Hobbitmage pulls out the Gladiator DVD just to hear the crowd chanting:
Spaniard! Spaniard!

Oh, it's worse than that. This is actually a dream - you are going to wake up in a second in a cold sweat, realize that it's December 2005, and Kwame Brown is the starting center. And you will have to read through 873 posts about his magical calves. Posted by: exhelodrvr | November 19, 2009 at 08:58 AM

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! wait I see an image appearing on my toast. Ex, Ex. it is indeed a miracle! At first I thought my jelly was forming into an image of Mother Teresa. But, no , no it is... it is in the shape of a Magnificent calves. Oh blessed be the Magnificent calves of Kwame. HOW GREAT THOU ART, HOW GREAT THOSE MAGNIFICENT CALVES ARE!!
KWAME, KWAME, KWAME, LORD KWAME BROWN ALLMIGHTY,

No, No please say it is not so! I'm no Lesbian. Yes I wear a Purple & Gold Thong but Iswear, believe me "Lunatic" I swear I'm no Lesbian!!! OH THE HUMANITY!! OH THE SHAME!!

SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING OLD . . .

I can almost remember it as if it were just last week. The Lakers were on a roll, Bynum's production measuring up to his "potential" game after game. Then came the injury... and the LAST 3-GAME LOSING streak since. WHY? Because Pau Gasol arrived on the seen!

Once Pau Gasol arrived, not only was the Laker ship righted, it took off! First year was an unexpected trip to the finals. Second year was a long-awaited championship. NOBODY can argue that Pau Gasol was the difference maker.

So here we are, a scant eleven games into the season, innundated with naysayers and Chicken-Lickens ("bock-bock-bock... the sky is falling!") despite the following facts:
1. Record of 8-3, against early high-ranking teams such as Dallas, Atlanta, Denver, Houston, Phoenix (combined 29 games over .500)
2. NO PAU for a single minute.
3. New player, Mr. Artest, far from his eventual identity of strength and effectiveness to come
4. BENCH that misses LO big-time.
5. NO PAU for a single minute.

All this "Trade Him" and "Sign Him" talk is ridiculous! Let's show some restraint, give the team another eleven game burn with Pau in the line-up, and then make an evaluation. He made a BIG difference before ~ I think we all will quickly see how that happens yet again.

In the meantime, I suppose we could instead be asking...
1. Why do the Celtics have similar record, but none of their significant rotation missing?
2. Why do the Cavs have a lessor record, and Shaq already missing games due to injury.
3. Why do the Hawks have the best record in the East, and yet the LAKERS BEAT THEM!!!

Mike

I would join you as we crotcherized and dancerized with a W tonite.
Beware of the Bulls, are we ready to rumble?

Mamba24,

Yes, laughing at myself, laughing at us. That is the height of insanity of sane Laker fans.

Is the Green Bald guy really a troll though? I mean he's not an idiot. Don't trolls have to be troublemakers? Just asking.

My goodness, the Blog is positively giddy this morning with the imminent return of our beloved Spaniard. It’s good to see the Blog in high spirits. There’s even a buzz in my own household. Now my fiancé (yes, that’s right, LakerLass’…Laddie) can get out his “I miss Pau” funk; as if Pau was his school yard chum that got sent away for the summer.

Mamba24, may I humbly request admission to the roll call? I thought I saw my “nom de blog” a few times, but it disappeared a couple of games ago. Unless there is another LakerLass and I usurped the name by mistake and became an unintentional impostor. I guess the next time I’m not feeling like myself I’ll check the blog and see if I’m there.

No matter what universe or alternate reality I’m in I AM A LAKER FAN. Let’s just not have any rips in Pau’s hammy or the time-space continuum for that matter.

A dopo.

Mamba24,

Speaking of the basketball mind, here is a sample of his world beyond poetry published on March 22, 2009 under the heading TINIENTE....ism. It's a form of government, a belief, a psychological breakdown. LMAO!

It’s deep into the night
And I really don’t feel bad at all.
I’m not drunk, high
Or anything else and
I’m alone.

There is no drama
In my soul…
That means I’m feeling content.
I’m at peace,
While I’m all alone.


I completely quote the similarity between our Lakers and the Entreprise (and I'm not really a trekkie... but whom doesn't know about that?).
That was a genius parallelism :)

Pau should hae mentioned which of them had the better NBA career, though I do love Cat Stevens return to us after the Bush family denied his returning home for years. He's the fella singing in the Phil Jackson commercial.

"Sincerely innocuous question," really?

Come on AK, didn't you purposefully throw Phil a big fat gopher ball?

Mamba24,

Laker Lass is real, please include him on the roll call. He could be our saving grace who will rescue this blog.

LakerTom,

I'm just pointing where we erred in the use of "er". Like for example, the word mother does not refer to a moth. lol or lol'erized???

Wuttup CRUE!!


Well - here I am... at least I think it's me..... I had an imposter on the live chat once - a MambO fan.... little punk...


PAU IS BACK!!!!!!!! Oh happy day! (oh happy day) Oh happy daaay! (oh happy day) etc


BUST OUT THE 3-HEADED SNAKE TONIGHT!!!!

KOBE!! DREW!! PAU!!

(Ok - maybe snake ain't the right picture... I was thinking along the lines of "medussa" but... How about 3-headed monster? Or maybe 3-headed beast?)


Am I sure this is me?

Mamba24, may I humbly request admission to the roll call? I thought I saw my “nom de blog” a few times, but it disappeared a couple of games ago.

LakerLass even when you are not there, you are always there in our heart. My mistake mam I apologize. Sometimes I try to compact the Roll Call and with my limited ability I screw up. Please accept my apologies, check in about 10 minutes and you'll be back in fact if you look close twice. And yes I have to say it...OUT FREAKIN STANDING!!!!!

I'm excited fellas!

I have imeem streaming "in the air tonight" with visions of Pau suited up in Laker gold for the first time since preseason.

Meanwhile my mind spins regarding the blog trinity theory of imposterization

It's like a trinity, 3 separate but yet 1 single? That doesn't make sense, and yet, it makes sense? Gosh, my mind is turning to mush.

And then to top it off, I'm wondering if Jean Luc Picard will start Spock, James Tiberius, along with Wil Riker and Data and if Jordie La Forge will ever get some burn over the now (literally) dead Scotty - and what will this do to the space/time continuum?

OMG, only possible in Lakerblog land

LAKERTOM - I cried during that new Star Trek I was so frickin moved. That's the sort of mamby pamby sci-fi fan I am! I totally thought that movie kicked major tail. Also, if you've never seen The Counterfitters (foreign w/subtitles) you should. It is fabulous.

Ex - You're recent metaphysical tilt to your posts suggests to me that none of us are real. I do use my name and don't create a mask, but I don't think anyone here could pick me out of a line up. All the same, I enjoyed reading those this morning as I caught up in the World of Laker Blog.

Phred - Maybe the other Phred is a Phish Phan and can't help using the 'ph' for 'f' spelling? I do like when you run around your home screaming in brackets. The other Phred would never be that hilarious OR creative. Maybe we should come up with a Secret Blog Knock or a code to truly establish who we are?

AK- That you would insinuate that anyone wouldn't be dropping by this Blog for the Dicken's like masterpieces you and BK leave us to devour is...well it's mind boggling! Hamfisted indeed!


Welcome back Paaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaauuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu! Now our biggest problems involve who plays the last 8 minutes or so in the game (hopefully a problem that can be resolved via blow out victories), getting Luke back (less of a problem, especially with Lamar moving back to the bench) and trying to figure out who has the better chops on the boards, Gasol or Jackson.

Lest we forget the year Phil took off from coaching and appeared on the beach as a Jedi? Or the time he tried to get 4 scratchers in a row and failed...just like the championship we didn't win that year (that commercial actually hurt to watch). In the words of Jon Lovitz, Master Thespian, Acting!


GO LAKERS!!!!!!!!!

Can you see the real me, Doctor? Doctor!


Phred's new theme song.

Don't worry Phred.


We won't get fooled again!

I'm confused, are GREEN BALD HEADED LUNATIC and mamba24 one and the same?

Geezz LakerTom..are u bored or something.

20pt win tonight

I've got a great idea!

Why don't all the players on the Lakers ACT like they're actually professional basketball players on a mission to win the Championship!

Wouldn't that be amazing?!?!?

[Urgh. Distractions.]

What do we play for? RINGS!!!!

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

GO LAKERS!!!!

Should I be flattered? Well, I think not. I thought I read you were not supposed to impersonate and steal people's handles on this newspaper. I can change it if you really want. But this imposter:
1. Does not have Giant in his name
2. Is a horrible speller
3. Is incoherent
4. Uses language I would never use, even if abbreviated.
5. Claims I would join any lakers bandwagon. While I don't HATE the lakers, I could never do such a thing. The REAL Giant Green Bald Headed Lunatic has followed his hometown team for far too long to ever follow anyone else. I have a feeling I know who it is, and he is very childish anyway. I respect the lakers, and hope we meet them in the Finals in June. There is nothing like it in all of sports. And it is great for the NBA. Have a great day all, and happy posting!!

Edwin Gueco,

Ah, Michael Teniente, the bard eternal.

Though sometimes I miss the guy, the truth of the matter is that the blog is a much better place without his inflammatory insanity.

What do we play for? RINGS!!!!

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

GO LAKERS!!!!

AK wrote after the Lakers' recent win "the natural order is restored" and to be honest with you, that is how I feel when the Lakers win, as if the natural order has been restored.

When the Lakers lose, it feels as if reality is on the verge of a Lovecraftian collapse when the sky will begin raining mutated frogs and the earth will open up and belch forth billions of centipedes with cat heads.

Terrifying.

So, it's good that Pau is back soon. We can return to maintaining the natural order because, quite frankly, I hate centipedes with cat heads.

What do we play for? RINGS!!!!

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

GO LAKERS!!!!

Man, what is happening with the Clippers is awful.

More injuries.

Is Mike Dunleavy THAT bad a coach? I mean, the guy lead the Lakers to the Finals and lead the Trailblazers to the Western Conference Finals. How can he be THAT bad a coach?

Go Clippers!!!

GO LAKERS!!!!!

LakerMike,

"Why do the Cavs have a lessor record, and Shaq already missing games due to injury."

The humorous thing is that the Cavs are a better team with Shaq on the bench.

What do we play for? RINGS!!!!

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

GO LAKERS!!!!

Hahaha! Now even Celtics fans are getting impostorized? In keeping with such silliness, I will henceforth refer to the impostor as the impooper.

We’re The Freaking LA LAKERS Who the Hell are You

"Is Mike Dunleavy THAT bad a coach? I mean, the guy lead the Lakers to the Finals and lead the Trailblazers to the Western Conference Finals. How can he be THAT bad a coach?"

Jon K,

Dunleavy has consistent at two things: Losing and when he has had successful seasons he would choke in the playoffs. In 1991 the Lakers stole home court advantage in Chicago yet got swept at the Forum and only Magic's amazing 20 assists in Game 5 prevented a big loss and kept that Game close and had no Byron Scott or James Worthy. Then in 2000 nothing excuses him from choking that Game 7 and letting Shaq and Kobe and the rest of the Lakers rally.

Not to mention that one game back in March where the Clippers again had a huge lead entering the 4th quarter and then blows it against Lebron AT HOME (compared to Game 7 2000 when it was a road game for Portland) that Zach Randolph badly air balled that 3 pointer. Simply Dunleavy isn't a championship caliber coach.

I'm not complaining though. As long as the Clippers keep sucking heck let Dumbleavy coach.

Clippers suck today...Clippers will suck tomorrow...Clippers will suck forever

Jon K,

MAGIC led the Lakers to the finals, not Dunleavy.

Dunleavy, the idiot, left the game plans lying on the floor after the game. Then, surprisingly, the zen master finds a way to defeat the Laker attack and LA wins no more games. Back then the Zen Master wasn't even referred to as 1 ring - even though he had one as a player.

Now he's known as 10 rings. The fates of the two coaches could not be more polarized.

But anyway, Magic went to the finals with, what, 4 different coaches? He could have done it with Del Harris too if he would have stuck around for Kobe's rookie year...

GREATEST LAKERS BY POSITIONS......

Kereem J at #5 spot
Pau Gasol at #4 spot
Worthy at #3 spot
Kobe at #2 spot
Magic at #1 spot

Jon K

Re: The Clippers


I think it's already a case of 'we're not gonna make it, NO, we're not gonna make it! We're not gonna make it to the play offs!"

Al Clipper teams quit under Mike D. He's totally lost his players confidence. I really believe John Lucas should coach the team even though he's only been there a few weeks. He's ex-NBA, he's got Baron Davis' confidence and most importantly, he's just a fresh face. Mike Dunleavy's stubborn Irish side won't let him simply walk away, he has to be fired by the Owner (something Donald will never do after his Elgin Baylor debacle and given the amount of money he'd be paying Dunleavey to just be GM).

I agree that it is a tragedy and I think guys like Camby, BD, Eric Gordon and Al Thorton deserve better. These guys are NBA players and not-a-one of them likes to lose. But when there's nothing to hope for, no change seems eminent and you can't fathom how you're even going to get to .500, you quit trying your hardest.

In the NBA, that picture shapes up to look like the CLippers for the last three years. They are mentally not in the game and if you're the Lakers, that looks like a 7-3 record (I don't think we're totally mentally in the game, either) but we do get by on pure talent tome nights. When you're the Clippers, that's not feasible. Maybe against the Grizzlies or the thunder every once in awhile, but not against any team other than your fellow bottom dwellers.

It's too bad because it was exciting for a season or two when the games between the Lakers and Clippers were more exciting than seeing whether or not the Lakers showed up for 48 minutes.

Too often the "Well, we're always hurt and nobody's seen the team play at 100% so it's hard to judge" excuse is played by every Clipper official, including Mike D. That is a steaming pile of manure. Show me an NBA team that plays at 100% health all season long. There isn't one. Even if guys don't sit out, they're rarely at 100%. The Clippers don't lack good health, good luck or any of that. They lack inspiration.

That roster should be at .500. The Kings are playing .500 basketball for heavans sake! Mike Dunleavey has got to go. I know he feels strongly about the potential of his team he's assembled and wants the accolades to go with all of his hard GM work. But a man has to know his limits, otherwise he ends up looking ridiculous.

Walk away Mike. It's better than being fired and people will respect you more than if you force Donald's hand.

We need a new bandwagon for the Poet Laureate of the blog, Mamba 24. Please put me as spell checker.

Did I miss Mike Teniente's blog on the power of Kwame's Calves. I was sure we would be serenaded by he Bard of Brown after his not so magnificent showing Tuesday night.

Jack

“….Oh, it's worse than that. This is actually a dream - you are going to wake up in a second in a cold sweat, realize that it's December 2005, and Kwame Brown is the starting center. And you will have to read through 873 posts about his magical calves.

Ex- other than Swamp Thing v2 annual #2, that is the scariest thing I have ever read. On the other hand, if it was 2005, I would have my old butt back. (yes, I don’t feel like waiting all day for somebody else to provide the punchline); now that’s the scariest thing the rest of y’all have ever read

A lesbian/thespian joke? I’m going to be generous and assume that wasn’t the real mamba.

I’m going to repeat this, just in case - Impostor- one who claims to be somebody they are not. Imposter- one who posts under someone elses name. Ok, I made that up on the spot, but it seems to work.

Ah, neologism.

@ Jon K,
Mr. 32 may have been responsible for the Lakers Finals appearance.
