LAKERS FAMILY

I am fully aware that not everybody that blogs here is a LAKERS fan, that even among LAKERS fans there is a tendency of being a 'fair-weather-fan' and that the dark sided trolls can at times take possession of the feeble-minded wannabe -but-they-are-not-perfect-and-I-am LAKERS fans.

True LAKERS fans root and die for their team no matter what. And if the inevitable happens and their beloved team goes down for whatever reason, the true LAKERS fan takes it like a man and without looking back...continues to root for his team...right or wrong, without second guessing the coaching staff (10 championships rings should convince anybody that the coach MAY know what he is doing?) or unloading on any of our players because they had a bad game?

>"...of course Kobe needs rest. He's not a machine he's a human being who eats and pisses the same way you do..."

Well, the same thing applies for the rest of the team... even the self-proclaimed 'machine' is NOT a machine but I guess we already knew that. The closest we come to a machine is KB who surpasses any adjective in any language to describe him and his GREATNESS. But even he, is only human!!

However, I am digressing from making my point. I bow to the TRUE LAKERS FANS on our blog (fortunately this list is longer than the dark sided one) who objectively and intelligently make sound comments and suggestions on how our team can overcome adversity, and I join you in our quest for another championship ring. As our fearless leader would say: 'It's gonna be fun!!!

WHOCARES

"Great and if they win the playoffs the city can spend a fortune on a parade for millionaires and their thug fans. Why not just encourage people to go out and celebrate which would stimulate the economy??? I know why...because this city (and state) is run by a bunch of moronic liberals. Can't wait for retirement when I put California in my rear view mirror. "
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
You are obviously not from CA, neither are you a LAKERS fan and although entitled to your opinion, you should be a little more informed. FYI the City did not spend a fortune for the parade - it was financed by donations from the private sector millionaires as a tribute to our Champions and enjoyment of the fans (who by the way, are not all millionaires and not all thugs) so answer me this:

If you are so unhappy in CA why keep punishing yourself and wait 'till retirement, are you a masochist? LOL

GOOOOOOOOLAKERS!!!!!


Lakers in 6. Nuff said.

Who videotaped this conversation between Phil and Kobe?

BLOG CRUE
I'm flattered that someone wants to be me on this blog, only NOT happy it was by Ding How in Prattville.

We'll, we made it to the Finals and that's great. Time to celebrate with a bar-be-que in the summer day and a few bevarages of my choice.

Colorado loves our World Champion Lakers!

The Real Hugo Boss

Jon K and Mamba24,

Make room for me for the I BELIEVE IN THE ENTIRE LAKER TEAM - I BELIEVE THEY WILL DESTROY THE CELTICS AND SEND THEM BACK TO THEIR CAVES FOR ANOTHER TWO DECADES - BANDWAGON

The Celtics may be good but LAKERS are the defending Champions and are ready to defend home court and their rightful place as reigning Champions. Bring it on! LAKERS in 6

GOOOOOOOOLAKERS!!!!!

Mamba24,
and the others who mentioned they enjoyed the ode to Kobe, thanks for the acknowledgment. I actually worked on that all week waiting for the right time.

Mamba, when it comes to Lakers blog poetry, you have been and remain the Master, I am just the Grasshopper.
:)

Wow! there sure is a ton of verbal diarrhea from that Michael C. Teniente character. Maybe we should all pitch in for a cork?
Go Lakers!

FROM NEW YORK,

HELLO GUYS,

REVENGE, REVENGE=LAKERS IN 6

Don't worry, our team will be CHAMPION this year period.

Kobe knows best and he will motivate the rest of the team to keep their focus for that challenge against the Celtics.

2010 is our destiny and nothing and nobody can take it from us.


Love to our team and to all


SHEKOBE FOREVER

CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR
You hoped you pleaded you asked for this, Well dear Celtics you got your wish
What was that chant? We want LA, Well old men Boston, you got your way
It’s one thing to ask, another to get, What you got for the Lakers, Aint worth Spit.
You got a star named Rondo yes he’s good, but this is the BIG TIME not the hood.
We are the Lakers you call us second best. Cause 17 Rings fly on the celtics Crest
Well Septics that is well and good, but there’s a new Sheriff in the neighborhood
15 Rings aint shabby at all, and that 16th will look so pretty in Staples hall.
But to show you what gentlemen are we, We’ll let you attend the 16th Ring Cermony
You aint got no excuses when you fall, You just met your better’s in Basketball
Tell Paula aint no shame in defeat, Put away that wheelchair and get on her feet
Tell the Green Bald Headed Lunatic to calm down, He aint got a chance to win the crown
Tell Doc we respect his class and grace, But he aint got a chance in this Finals Race
We got the Baddest Player in history, Scored more points than the Opponents you see
In one game he scored 81, coulda scored more but winning Rings is more fun
We got the Former Defensive Player of the year, One look at him and you’ll breakout in Fear
We got the MVP of International Play, Some say he’s soft until they see him play
We got Mr 0.4, that’s right Dfish, Don’t blink for a second or the ball he’ll swish
So I think Boston you might as well quit, Cause compared to the Lakers you aint got SPIT!!!!!

Those are the same fools predicting Crabs unbeatable and the glory of the Biggest Loser of all time. They simply are delusional and so out, out, OUT of reality ;) Just saying. 2010 it's revenge year. Such a sweet, tasty, awesome year for us ;) I can feel it, coming in the air of night... ;) It's the Make it or Break It moment and champions don't have to overthink that blissful push at stepping further. Champions come and at a sudden point, all that had to start working to take them (and the team) at the next level START to work. But it's not miracle. As someone smarted pointed out earlier, it's out from all the failures, mistakes, adjustements previously made also in rusty ways.

(22) WALLACE - You know that I'm good for Jon K's bandwagon!!! It's payback time! I agree with Red that "enuf said" on the topics and let's focus on the game itself instead of spitting poison at one another. It's the NBA Finals in heaven. Good against Evil! Two best NBA franchises are at in the Finals once again. But this time, we will WIN!!! It won't be easy. The Celtics has a good coach in Doc Rivers and a great defensive guru in Thibodeau. We have the Zen Master and the best player in the NBA period, Kobe - The Black Mamba! It's a NBA version of "Clash of the Titians!" Lakers in 7!!! It will be a classic!!
(23) EJK - While sweeping Boston would be nice, I kinda want the Lakers to celebrate winning the championship at Staples. First, Boston fans take after KG, so they're generally a low-class, vile bunch whose capable of despicable things. Second, it's been 10 long years since we've won the championship at home...there's something special about winning it in front of your home crowd.

Ron Artest's play in Game 6 was very impressive. I hope he can continue to play at that level against Boston, and make Paul Pierce (who killed us in 2008) work really hard.

Kobe is Kobe - an incredible BB player that Laker fans will remember 30 years from now. His shots at the end of Game 6 where simply WoW!!

I was worried about Derek Fisher's game earlier in the season, but his recent play has been very impressive. Rondo will be another serious challenge, but after Westbrook, Williams and Nash, I think Fisher and the Laker Gang are ready.

I loved the demeanor of the team, serious and quiet, when getting the WCF trophy after yesterday's game. I saw revenge in their eyes.

Bynum keeps limping along with the knee injury and double teams have taken his offense away, but I'm impressed with his effort and speed up and down the court and switching on defense. Hopefully, Laker trainers and doctors can keep him going until the surgery.

I see this series against Boston going the full seven games. Naturally, I'm rooting for the Lakers, but we will need some LUCK. Staying healthy will be a key for both teams - in 2008 we were missing a couple of guys. We need to win at home this time, and stop blowing 18-20 point leads.

P.S. Does Michael Cornhole "Tedious " Teniente have nothing better to do with his time that fuel his petty anger with endless hohum posts? Get a life and post less, Mr. T!

As a lifelong Lakers fan I am really excited about these finals, even more so than any other lakers finals I have had the pleasure to watch over the past 30 years.

I find myself travelling in the country of el salvador and guess what? I found myself sitting at a local bar watching last nigth´s game along with about 20 other people, all rooting for LOS LAKERS. What a great feeling. for a minute there I was back home at a local bar in Pasadena.

Although the Celts have a good team, they really have no clue as to what is about to hit them come thursday night.

Our prediction from El Salvador, Los Lakers en 6

Laker fan in ES

P.S. Save me a front row spot along the parade route. I will be back in time for it.

GO LAKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why do you guys feed the trolls? what a waste of time. you can't argue with a drunk or crazy person. I'm wearing out my scroll wheel...lol.
