Repost (sorry can't keep up with Mark):

Kobe Bryant is one bad mofo -- that turnaround j in the second half was unbelievable, I don't even think he had time to see the basket it was so quick!

Incredible game by just about everybody. Little things by Fish, big things by Odom, contributions from Pau and the bench, good decisions by Phil, and dominance by #24 -- all in all a clear indicator that the Suns have no hope.

So shut up Amare and get ready to go on vacation!

128 points? Seriously, 128 points? What's that smell? Really, I could smell it all the way down Figueroa.

The Lakers brought out the heavy artillery! No, Wait!

Ooooh That Smell! Can't You Smell That Smell? Ooooh that Smell! (Lynrd Skynrd)

Napalm? Yeah, Napalm! That's the Smell...

"I Love The Smell Of Napalm In The Morning!!!"

Make No Mistake, This Is No Ordinary Battle...

Next Step: Game 2--Break Out the Nukes! Take No Prisoners!!!

GO LAKERS!!! ONE, TWO, THREE, DOMINATE!!!!

Heck, even Red's Love Child is so amazed, he just has to watch in lurking admiration (dude, if I were you, I wouldn't even watch the next series...it'll be the first 7-game series ever stopped after 3 on a mercy rule).

Now I'm not a big Stat touter since they typically don't tell the whole story. However, look at the +/- for the Suns. Every player for the Suns (with the exception of Robin Lopez) was in the Negative Points Zone. Wow!

By way of comparison, only DJ, Luke & Josh Powell were in the negative. Our 3rd String, Garbage Time Guys. That's it...

Literally, there wasn't anyone the Suns could put on the floor who could get anything done. Great Game!!!!

GO LAKERS!!! ONE, TWO, THREE, DOMINATE!!!!

Mamba24,

Hell, yes, put your foot on their throats. And do it after rubbing your boots in something gross for good measure. I'm in for the band wagon.

Mamba24,

Phoenix 110, Boston 103 {Nov. 16, 2009}
Phoenix 116, Boston 98 {Dec. 30, 2009}

Best wishes to the LA lakers in the WCF...because we want NO part of the Phoenix Suns!!!!

As for LA...Let`s face it, if Kobe doesn`t hit a last second shot on Jan.31st {when we were at our low point during the season}...we would have gone 2-0 against you guys this year!

There's actually something about the game that concerned me.

Previous to this, the Lakers have been winning by holding teams under 40% shooting. Phoenix shot almost 50%! That actually gives me some pause for concern. I'm not saying Phoenix can beat the Lakers. They can't. I'd say 5 games top at this point, and a sweep wouldn't surprise me. But after holding OKC and Utah to the low 40s in shooting, I was hoping they could do the same to the Suns.

Once again, my prediction is accurate.

Robin Lopez was a little factor in the game. As soon as he was pulled in the 1st quarter the Lakers took advantage of Frye.

Odom just hit the lane on his weak-azz.

But, as I said before, Lopez is still too raw to be a significant factor over the whole game.

Am I impressed with the Lakers?

No! The Suns have no real big men so the Lakers should kill them.

I said it as soon as the Lakers beat the Thunder and the Jazz beat the Nuggets. I said: The Jazz and the Spurs/Suns are no match for the Lakers and the Lakers are going to the finals.

I thought the Cavs were deep enough to get to the finals. I suspected the Celtics were playing possum all year long but I wasn't sure about Garnett's leg. Once I knew for sure Garnett was healthy...it was no surprise to me the Celtics beat the Cavs.

I see the Celtics in the finals against the Lakers.

There'll be no open lane to the basket for the Lakers in that series.

If the Magic beat the Celtics, the Lakers will win the Championship again this year.

mike t.

Childish Red...

And IF Kobe Bryant had played against your Septics in L.A., chances are the Lakers would have been 2-0 against the Green Slime! IF is the biggest word in the English language.

@REDS LOVE CHILD,
Hey Red, 2-0 possibly. But we - Lakers & Celtics - have bigger fish to fry. Stomp on Superman tonight and I think you sweep them. That switching of centers on him was great. didn't think 80 yr. old Sheed had it in him. Give Superman Howard more of that tonight and then go home and finsih the job! I smell double sweep! Make it happen Red. We got a June 3 date with destiny. See You in the Finals Red and good luck to your team tonight.
Mamba24

Hey Red's,

May I remind you that the Celtics beat the Lakers on 2/18 by only 1 point WITHOUT Kobe. May I also remind you that there was also another mighty team that went 2-0 against the Lakers last year...the Orlando Magic and how did that turn out buddy?

Mamba-

Good job last nite. Not sure why but it looks like your team wants to advance.

BTW 128 is a lot of points but I dont think thats gonna be happening next round. I suggest that during practice their offense play against 10 guys to prepare for the next round.

131

I often wonder what keeps a so-called die-hard Celtics fan coming to the Lakers blog constantly. I will assume you just like us that much but really...I don't even read Celtics articles or follow the Globe or the Herald or even the blog. What keeps you coming back honey...are you really a Laker fan deep down inside? Do we intrigue you that much?

Thanks and you're right it aint going to be any 128 point games. It's all about the Defense and have we got one cooked up for for you 131. We don't even need to prepare, The last finals against you is in our DNA now and when we meet 131 it is going to be perhaps one of the greatest series on record. So Tell Sheed to take out Howard and tell the Celts to Sweep. We'll be at the Finals waitng for you. Oh and good luck tonight

ECJ-

Its called knowing your opponent. Its called being an NBA fan. Its called having knowledge. Is the fact you know nothing about the Celtics a good thing? I will keep that in mind when you post something about the Celtics.

BTW are you braggn or complaining?

We don't fear the Green!
Artest will be our enforcer this time around.
Get the wheel chair ready for PP.

Wow...just wow...There is a reason that town is called The Mistake By The Lake.

But ahem, what I truly am here for....

I was at work all night yesterday, didn't get to watch or be on the blog. But I did get to listen on the radio and all I have to say is...Physical and Sun do not go together.

I told you Amare wouldn't bang down low!
I told you Frye would put up threes all game!
I told you Side Show Bob would be...well Side Show Bob!
I told you J Rich and Nash were defensivly challenged!
I told you there was no "Kobe Stopper" on that team!

I do not always listen to basketball on the radio but when I do, I prefer to listen to the Lakers dismantle the Suns.

So just like one of my favorite WWF Wrestlers of all time..
"Macho Man" Randy Savage all I have to say is...

Dig It Brother!! OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHH YEEEEEEEEAAAAAH!!!!!

Come on now folks, play nice.


FEARless -

Lakers are very important to you, that's clear. But you also realize what means the most to you, your family.

Your priorities are correct. You set a good example to all of us.

PS. NBA.com is showing the game with 4 camera views. If you have the bandwith, its a nice way to watch the game.

I told you so...I told you so...this is going to be a fun series!

You've shown your age, thanks for the head's up. That explains everything.

is bynum just plain lazy? only his mom and dad can say.

As General George Patton would say:
My God, I actually pity those poor bastards we're going up against. My God, I do. We're not just going to outshoot the bastards, we're going to cut out their living guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks. We're going to murder those lousy Celtic bastards by the bushel. The Celtics are the enemy. Wade into them. Spill their blood, shoot them in the belly. Now there's another thing I want you to remember. I don't want to get any messages saying that we are holding our position. We're not holding anything, we'll let the Celtics do that. We are advancing constantly, and we're not interested in holding onto anything except the enemy. We're going to hold onto him by the nose, and we're going to kick him in the ass. We're going to kick the hell out of him all the time, and we're going to go through him like crap through a goose.

Now now 131, it's obvious to a toddler that ECJ was just teasing you? Why tge snappish behavior? Could it be that you are worried about your chances against us after seeing Los Laguneros completely dominate Los Soles? Remember, smack talk is appreciated, but play nice. ECJ, I got the joke, I'm pretty sure Red did too...

I'm clearly focused on the Suns, but......

Who do we want in the Finals?

The Celtics of course, because we have the home court advantage. No guarantees, but I would rather play game seven at home, than a possible game 7 in Orlando.

That's all you will hear from me on that. In the mean time, I will be looking for my broom. Let's see, where did I put that thing. I just had it out last week.

rdlee-

Sounds like Doc before Game 6!

I wasnt being mean. I was talking smack too!

Of course Im worried about Los Laguneros.

WE’RE COMMING
And so the Lakers came to play, what the Suns did I can’t say
They said beware of Steve Nash, Sorry that plane already crashed
We’re the Lakers and we’re coming thru, We’ve got an appointment to get to
Got to make the Finals & meet Boston, then we can truly say it is on
This WCF is just a practice for us, The finals is where we make our thrust
Celtics have awakened all well and fine, We got Kobe with Revenge on the mind
Boston you must finish the Magic First, There’s something waiting that is much worst
Yeah that’s right we’re waiting for you, did you think we’d forget 131 -92
The Freakin LA Lakers are right on track, to give Boston some Laker Pay Back
Revenge is Best served cold, So look out Celts here come the Purple & Gold
The Celts got Rasheed but what can he do, Against a a guy named the Thrillah to
We’re coming to get you, we’re on the way, We’ll stomp & beat & put you away

OH NO YOU DIDN'T! ROFLMFAO!!!!!!!!

Why do Celtic fans come here, when the Celtics are in the middle of their own series?

I don't have to read their comments, which I don't. But the answer is quite simple.

Have you been to their blogs? I have. But only for a short time, because they really stink, they are awful.

Its like visiting one of those Port-a-Johns on a construction site, that hasn't been cleaned in a week? It smells so bad, you have to hold your breath the entire time you are quickly doing your business. Its the same way on a Celtic blog.

And the intelligence, or rather, the lack of intelligence portrayed. You can't help to wonder how are they even typing their comments? I picture some hairy Neanderthal dictating to someone, "Say good bout Celtic. Say we gooder, cause we wear green. Green good" And that's one of the deeper comments.

No wonder they come here to visit. Its for the fresh air. We are classy, clean and intelligent. They are willing to put up with all this Purple and Gold and daily humiliation, just to get away from their cesspool of a blog.

Just my thoughts....just saying.

>>>Am I impressed with the Lakers?
>>>No! The Suns have no real big men so the Lakers should kill them.

Mike T,

I pointed to a link back to the 2006 blogs. After the Lakers took a 3-1 lead in that series, you actually wrote that you thought the Lakers could win a championship with that team (Kwame, Smush, Luke, Cook, et al).

So your credibility in evaluating whether a team is good enough to win a championship is questionable at best.

Red's,

>>>As for LA...Let`s face it, if Kobe doesn`t hit a last second shot on Jan.31st
>>>{when we were at our low point during the season}...we would have gone 2-0
>>>against you guys this year!

oooooooo. We're soooooo impressed.

Last year Orlando swept the Lakers... in the regular season.

Regular season victories don't get you championships. Ask Cleveland. C'mon Red, you should know that those two games meant nothing.

And by the way, if not for a MISSED last second shot in the second game (without Kobe), the Lakers would have been 2-0 vs Boston. So what.

So I'm looking forward to the draft tonight. For some reason I don't think John Wall is NBA ready yet. He's an immense talent but something doesn't tell me NBA quality just yet. Bets are he'll end up with the Nets anyway so he'll have plenty of time to build up his game. Anyone have other thoughts?

PJ = 46-0 when winning the 1st game of a playoff series, soon to go to 47-0. 128 points, are you friggin kidding me? Yeah the PHX Nashes are so tough on D. I can see why they are now "Los Suns" because they play D like Matadores...Ole! Hey where is that retard Butler? Come on little boy where's the smack? Cat got your tongue?

Hey mamba, please put me on that bandwagon....step on their throat, and cover Steve Nash's good eye!

IN CELTICS WE HAVE A FORMIDABLE OPPONENT.....unlike the Phoenix Suns...

There are two players I feel sorry for on the Phoenix team Mr nicest guy Grant Hill and an aging competitor Stevie Nash. Also happy for Malcom X their coach, another great guy.

Looking past the Suns, it will take total team effort to win the title. No hero ball but a zero ball will be the key to our success.

Kobe - yesterday's game, for the most part he played within the team concept, although, there were few spotty moments where I told myself, oh no here he goes again, dribble, dribble dribble in traffic and missed few of those shots. Phew..This is the only part of Kobe's game that concerns me and is a big reason for him not winning more than 1 MVP. ..so the jury is out..

Drew - we need him and really hope he feels better

Lamar - aka Swiss Army knife, again was terrific and hope to see consistency for rest of the series...

Pau - was terrific, the best all time Laker Power Forward and no ifs ands butts and the best team mate

Artest - our defensive enforcer and glad to have him on board the Freddy Laker's jet!!

Dfish - no Dfish no title.

Bench Mob - Brown, Farmar, Machine, Luuuke, DJ, Powell will come through as I have full faith..I say heeeeeeeeel in the name of.....

All in all this Laker team is going to peak for the finals

What did they call it? The best Missed Dunk of All-Time! Lol! That it was princess, that it was!

KOBE NEEDS TO GUARD RONDO FROM THE START!

NO MESSING AROUND THIS SERIES. KOBE IS GONNA HAVE TO GUARD RONDO, FISHER CAN GUARD ALLEN

Fisher can't guard Allen, and he can't guard Rondo.

The difference between OKC & Bos is that we may have to give a few minutes to the young legs - having said this, I don't think Bos is potent enough really exploit our PG weak link

MAMBA24,

If I am too late to have a seat, I will stand on the SWEEP Bandwagon!

Oh, I agree too, that why in the world do non-Laker fans show up on the Laker Blog, must be nice (??) to have time to waste. Or is it that their Blog has no one interested! I woudn't even dream of posting on an opponents Blog! It's just GREAT to be a Laker fan!

Wow, Celts play about as well as they could and barely held on to win game one. Greenies may want to hold off counting those little chicks, you know?! Just sayin!

PUT YOUR FOOT ON THE SUNS THROATS & SWEEP THEM LAKERS - BANDWAGON
*
(01)RDLEE - OWNER - With the Kobe face, the broom is ready
(02) MAMBA24 - DRIVER - I got the Broom handy!
(03) BRONXLAKERFAN - RIDING SHOTGUN - If you've got the broom, I've got the dustpan!!After reading Amare's boastful comments, I say SUCK THE FUNS!! Please put me on that sweep bandwagon!
(04) #4 – KEEPER OF DYNASTY 4 SECURITY - put me on that 'foot on the throat bandwagon'.put that foot on nash's throat....and cover his good eye
(05)TEAMN – SECURITY- Kobe Bryant is one bad mofo -- that turnaround j in the second half was unbelievable, I don't even think he had time to see the basket it was so quick!Incredible game by just about everybody. Little things by Fish, big things by Odom, contributions from Pau and the bench, good decisions by Phil, and dominance by #24 -- all in all a clear indicator that the Suns have no hope. So shut up Amare and get ready to go on vacation!
(06) CORNERJ – SANITATION SUPERVISOR & -Los Dysuns Hypersuck Operator. Whoa, what a total beatdown! The Lakers just up and opened a can of Costco-sized whoopazz on them. When we play like that there is NO team in the NBA that has a chance. Not even if Lebronze's mom had regained her virginity. Heck, even Red's Love Child is so amazed, he just has to watch in lurking admiration (dude, if I were you, I wouldn't even watch the next series...it'll be the first 7-game series ever stopped after 3 on a mercy rule).
(07) MARCB – DIRECTOR OF WIN # 3 WCF - 128 points? Seriously, 128 points? What's that smell? Really, I could smell it all the way down Figueroa.The Lakers brought out the heavy artillery! No, Wait!Ooooh That Smell! Can't You Smell That Smell? Ooooh that Smell! (Lynrd Skynrd)Napalm? Yeah, Napalm! That's the Smell..."I Love The Smell Of Napalm In The Morning!!!"Make No Mistake, This Is No Ordinary Battle... Next Step: Game 2--Break Out the Nukes! Take No Prisoners!!! GO LAKERS!!! ONE, TWO, THREE, DOMINATE!!!!
(08) KEIFO - DIRECTOR WIN #4 WCF - Put me on the bandwagon- I've got my dustbuster!!
(09) RICK FRIEDMAN – DIRECTOR WIN # 1 FINALS - Hell, yes, put your foot on their throats. And do it after rubbing your boots in something gross for good measure. I'm in for the band wagon.
(10) FATTY – DIRECTOR WIN #2 FINALS - That's all you will hear from me on that. In the mean time, I will be looking for my broom. Let's see, where did I put that thing. I just had it out last week.
(11) D(erek)J(eter) - DIRECTOR WIN # 3 FINALS
(12)

@ D(erek)J(eter) you know we always have a seat for you DJ. Welcome aboard! LOL!

The question is not who will guard allen & rondo, but who will guard Kobe! When the Lakers play their game they are unstoppable. Boston is good, just not as good. No fear Lakers Fans.

Good morning CRUE!


I'm still smiling like an idiot today. That win showed our complete domination over the Phuns - pretenders that they are. I don't think they'll have too much smack talk over the next day & a half... LOL!


Shannon Skywalker Brown is ... wow... CRAZY! That was something. I can't even believe what I saw! The look on Kobe's face as UPS was still going.. well.. UP (!!) is simply priceless!

Mamba24 - I DEF need a seat on the NO LET UP NO MERCY bandwagon!! I'll stand if I have to. Hell - I'll strap myself to the roof it there's no more room!!!

Jeanette - I had been wondering why you haven't been around lately. I'm sorry to hear about your aunt. It's hard losing someone you love - I'm so sorry for your pain. Your Laker fam here is for you....

Great posts, Mamba. Save a place on the "Ryde or Die With D-Laker" section for me.

As for this Laker fan, I was so glad to be proven wrong. I honestly thought Phoenix would steal one going into last night. But LA controlled the tempo, Lamar Odom was back to being The Difference, Gasol was magnificant, and yes, Kobe was otherworldly. L.A.'s had the best team 3 years running, but often they haven't played like it and two years ago didn't finish like it. I just hope that the focus remains on finishing the Suns -- who have one or two fights in them, somewhere -- and finishing them fast.

Last night proved that REST trumps RUST for the 2010 Lakers. It also proved that these Lakers carry long grudges, which is wonderful to know.

You know, just in case.

As for the C's . . . you all are getting way too far ahead of yourselves. As the great philosopher Qui-Gon Jinn would say, be mindful of the living Force . . . but not at the expense of the moment! LOL . . .

I refuse the cheer for either the Septics or the Micemen. You need to be careful of what you wish for! I think as long as the Lakers get to the Finals, it doesn't really matter who else is there, cuz that team will be just a footnote in NBA history.

Good Morning Justa, Peace, It looks like we are on our way. Only thing, 7 more wins and the seasons over waaaaaa.

Hey guys we got a new post up

MM

EastCoastJessie,

Congrats on finishing up with finals. I miss those days!

As for your question regarding John Wall, I wonder as well. His tournament performance did not wow me, so I wonder if he's truly ready. I think back to Derek Rose and how his tourney compared to Wall's and I think you can see a difference.

But as you said, probably doesn't matter given the team he will go to.

Please put me on the put your foot on the throat bandwagon...Kobe is a very baaaaaaad man!

Who's the reporter with the strong New York accent? Sounds a bit like Marv Albert (I love the way Albert sez Fah-mah)
