Phil Jackson expresses admiration for Steve Nash's ability to play with a swollen right eye

Lakers Coach Phil Jackson has coached his fair share of players overcoming physical limitations.

Chicago Bulls guard Michael Jordan overcame the flu and still managed to score 38 points despite lacking his usual explosiveness in the 78-73 Game 5 victory over the Utah Jazz in the 1997 NBA Finals. And, of course, Lakers guard Kobe Bryant this season has fought valiantly in compensating for his various finger, ankle and knee injuries this season, appearing to turn a corner by scoring at least 30 points in the last five games.

That's why Jackson expressed admiration for Phoenix guard Steve Nash managing to play through Game 4 of the Suns' series-clinching win against the San Antonio Spurs with essentially one eye after Tim Duncan's errant elbow caused his right eye to remain swollen shot. "That's a personification of who he is," Jackson said of Nash, whom the Lakers plan to guard this series with Derek Fisher. "He likes to compete and he wouldn't want to give up that opportunity."

Mamba24,

One more passenger for the GET WELL SOON HUMANOMALY" BANDWAGON. I'm in.

Mamba24, Add me too. Do everything Humanly Possible HUMANOMALY to Get Well Soon!!!

Some of you already have concluded that I'm delusional, so I may not be breaking any new ground here. I have a confession to make. (No, Justa, don't go there.)

I'm having a troll fantasy. There, I've said it. Since Mr. Medina has not offered to entertain us tonight with a live chat here, I'm thinking it might be fun for one night to visit a Celtics blog during the game. Yes, my hatred, loathing and contempt for Princess Jimmi would drive me that far.

I know, I know, be careful what you wish for. But I passionately want the Green Meanies to send the pretender on summer vacation. It would make me that happy. I can put the Celtics back where they belong on the enemies list once they've humiliated Stern's love child.

Dear Abby: Is my troll fantasy that wrong? Do I need a 12-step program or even rehab? I feel so guilty. But being a troll for just one night sounds really right. Please respond before game time.

Good morning to you too, Mamba24! I'm fine - thanks for asking!


No - I don't think I'll attend the princess's services. I didn't give her praise in life - I ain't about to start now.

Rick - YES - MM has said we WILL have a live chat tonight during the game!!!!!

Rick - my dear BFF - I'm going to pretend you did NOT talk about yourself going trolling.


I will try to forget those words were ever typed by you.

I'm going to need some vodka AND the defibrillator to succeed, but I think it can be done.

Man, hope the celtic players know that they're not going to be able to breathe on lebron tonight. Hope they can play through that tonight.

Rick - I'm working on a morning links post but in that post I am announcing we will have a chat tonight for Celtics-Cavs.

Especially to Phred, Mamba24 & Art,
Thanks for taking a few minutes and figuring out what issue I have going on in my life. You guys have shown more concern and care than my"friends, co-workers (medical field) or family"... which I care less for now, as I see how they never reached out to help me over the last few months. There's no need to start a bandwagon, just one of you out there acknowledging it, meant more to me than any thing. Thank you for understanding. Obviously we have some bright bulbs out there because others who I mentioned it more descriptively to think I'm exaggerating "headaches"....well it's far from that, I've had it for over 15 years now, and it comes and goes, this time it came probabably as a result of a car accident, I got rear-ended hard. TN is a very serious. It derailed my marriage, as we did not understand all the repercussions. I keep to myself because I have to avoid crowds, bright lights and loud noises. Thanks for gesture, but lets get back to basketball. I'll get through it again, it'll go away, then it'll come back again. So I have a dim view on alot of things due to this. People think I'm just a grumpy, loner when in reality I'm just trying to put myself into my safe zone. Thanks again, to all, as I didn't mention all that perked up. I'll be ok. I have to be.Posted by: humanomaly (29 minutes) | May 13, 2010 at 09:34 AM

(01) JustAnotherMambaFan - OWNER - Human - count me in as someone who cares about what's going on with you (and of course with the rest of my Laker fam). You are obviously a person of great inner strength. It will serve you well in this trying time. Remember that many here will now have you in their prayers, and will provide much support and words of encouragement when you need them. And - of course - a Laker dousing of the Suns will help too!!
(02) PHRED - DRIVER - I should be on the Humanomoly bandwagon too. ok, Trigeminal neuralgia? damn. Not our Humanomaly. Do not go gentle into that good night. This isn't even a topic I feel confortable discussing here, but we have, well, damn. Ok, please, let's talk about this at length, give us more details. Cause this is (*&*(&ed up.
(03)MAMBA24 - RIDING SHOTGUN, My brother do what your doctor say & get plenty of rest and fresh air. Deep cleansing breaths are also good. We need you for the stretch run. May God & the Force be with you.
(04) #4
(05) Art-FL Laker Fan - RIDING SHOTGUN - Humanomaly,If you ever want to bring this up on the blog I think there are people here who can be supportive and interested. What's more important is to talk about it or don't talk about it, doing whatever is most comfortable for you. I would guess there may be others here who are familiar with chronic pain disorders and can relate, to an extent.
I understand the depression that can seep in and the lack of understanding from others, but that you have tolerated and overcome for 15 years is a remarkable testament to your inner strength. You obviously have a very powerful personality that has given you a strength that most would not be able to endure. People like you are heroes of a different nature that our celebrity crazed culture passes by.
Nuff said. - BEST WISHES!!
(06) EASTCOASTJESSIE - My prayers go out to HUMANOMALY
(07) OUCHHH -
(08) JON K. - Please put on the Humanomaly Get Well! bandwagon.
(09)MTI312 - I'M IN!
(10) LAKERLASS - No time to hang out today, but I had to pop in to send best wishes to Humanomaly and to take my seat on the bandwagon
(11) EDWIN GUECO - Get well soon Humanomaly, add one more minute to your blog name & continuous winning will clear those headaches.
(12) RICK FRIEDMAN - One more passenger for the GET WELL SOON HUMANOMALY" BANDWAGON. I'm in.
(13)MARCB - Add me too. Do everything Humanly Possible HUMANOMALY to Get Well Soon!!!


M2,

Whew!!! Thank you. You may not have entirely saved my soul from eternal damnation, as I have had so many other evil thoughts from time to time. But I certainly appreciate you offering some redemption for my human weakness. My troll fantasy has been exorcised.

Get well soon Humanomaly.

Back2back payback tour...I'm down for that wagon.

Thanks Mamba.

When are these dang games gonna start....watching the East is interesting, but I think the theme of the eastern playoffs is 'who's wants to play the magic'. The Magic look like they have every facet of their game locked down AND have the scorn of losing last years final driving them. Sound familiar?

But I digress....don't care who wins in the east, so long as we win the Ring.

Rick,

I kinda like it.
We could all do it.
Kinda like dressing up on halloween, we could dress up as trolls and go the Celtics, Cavs, and Suns blogs and create havoc!

MAMBA24,

Please add my to the H29 Bandwagon, my cares and prayers go out H29!

Rick,

"Is my troll fantasy that wrong?"

Yes. Yes, it is.

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

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

GO LAKERS!!!

BACK TO BACK PAYBACK - BANDWAGON
*
(01) YELLOW FEVER - OWNER - we could be in for a real treat.. win this and we could have
(02) TIM-4-SHOW - DRIVER - Put me on that BACK2BACK PAYBACK bandwagon. Good to know that at least some of the team will use the past as motivation to the future.
(03) EDWIN GUECO - JUDGE - Indeed, this is a serious PAYBACK. Lakers must win this series in memory of the faithful scrubs who are still playing for the organization. This is their chance for redemption too!
(04) # 4 - Back2back payback tour...I'm down for that wagon.
(05) LAKERINBC - RIDING SHOTGUN - Put me on any Payback bandwagons too please. Back2Back Payback - that's genius!
(06)MARCB - SECURITY - Go Lakers! One-Two-Three! Dominate!!!!
(07) JUSTANOTHERMAMBA - Payback like revenge is best served cold
(08) MAMBA24 - Never, Ever, Ever Forget! Payback is a B*
(09) LAKERLADY - REFEREE - They'll be rested and ready to take the Suns down...SUNDOWN!!!
(10)VMAN - ARe we too complacent? ARe we taking the Suns too lightly, spending the day talking about the Bron's no show?
WE got this. We know it, the Suns know it. (11) STAPLES24 - Lakerfans! Let's help the C's pour the CEMENT on Lebron James!!! Laker Celtics Finals 4-0!!! Lakers Champions!
(12)THE INFAMOUS EL GUAPO - So again I ask, Where the F! is this "Physical Suns" Team I keep hearing about.
(13) LAL_FAN - Kobe still remembers humiliating losses in 2006 and 2007. The revenge is sweet
(14) D(erek)J(eter) |
(15) JON K - I still remember those Smush/Kwame series against the Suns. Those losses hurt. Time to lay down a good old fashioned beatdown against the Suns.
(16) MTI312 - I also believe if there is one team the Lakers want to blow away in the West are the Phoenix Suns. They will prove it again beginning Monday.
(17) WALLACE - DIRECTOR WCF WIN # 3 - Yes, I'm in the B2B bandwagon. B2B is just a beginning! it hurt when we lost to them after 3-1 lead in 2007. The Suns are more versatile this year than the 2007 team except for the lock down defensive guard (No Raja Bell) but I do think our team is much better too (Except for the bench
(18) EASTCOASTJESSIE - DIRECTOR WCF WIN# 4 - Mamba, I want nothing more than to be able to crush the Celtics in a finals series so you know I'm on the B2B bandwagon.
19) LAKERTOM - The secret to offense is penetration. The secret to defense is anticipation.
The secret to stopping Steve Nash is force him to go left because of his eye
(20) OUCHHH - Kobe will be very, very, very angry. remember. Raja clothesline, Barbosa breaking his tooth if you did not know what Kobe's Wrath means, this series will become a new entry in the Dictionary. the Suns already have Los Butterflies
(21) RAGE777 - The Suns will always lose when Steve has to be the scorer. He is a great shooter, but he will not kill you by shooting. How many 30 point games can you remember in Steve's career? Stop Amare and the reserves and the Lakers advance easily.
(22) FEARLESS- DIRECTOR WIN #1 FINALS - BACK 2 BACK PAYBACK bandwagon for me. With all due haste!

Princess Jimmy you've seen your day, Now please take your Mother Freakin @zz Away

Mamba24 - LMAO - CLASSIC song. Pure genius!

EastCoastJessie,

I will admit that Boston is NOT exactly a "basketball" town.
Here {in Boston}, the Celtics are not anywhere near as big as the Red Sox are.

Anyways, none of that matters. What does matter is that you sound HOT! How the hell have I missed you all these years?!?

FATHER FORGIVE ME FOR I HAVE SINNED
http://www.cavstheblog.com/?p=2351&cpage=1#comment-17884

Red - just fyi - ALL the women of the LA Times Lakers blog are hot. The reason you missed ECJ is cuz you're a troll. Simple. Besides, she'd ignore you. She's got more class in one of her little fingers than you do in your entire body. (Although I must admit you're getting a little classier in your old age.)

Oh, thank Jeebus there's gonna be a chat tonight. I'm going stir-crazy without Lakers basketball. :|

OH SWEET JESUS!!! ROFLMFAO!!!!! HAHHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHA~!!!
MAMBA24

Rick,

You raised some interesting points earlier this morning.

I can't speak for all of us, but I don't feel as though I take the Suns lightly, only that a losing series here for the Lakers = utter failure. This doesn't mean it will be "easy" - I think it will be about as challenging as OKC.

Another point you raised that I'd like to address: the hotness of the Suns (their play, not their looks)

In 2007 here in Denver, the Colorado Rockies went on a remarkable streak to close out the season. They caught up with the San Diego Padres and tied them for the wild card. They then won a tie breaker to get into the post season.

The 2007 Rockies continued their hot streak - ripping through opponents like a chain saw through butter.

First they swept the Phillies (Who won the ring the following yr), then they swept the Diamondbacks.

Meanwhile, in the American League, the Red Sox had their hands full, duking out a 7th game against Cleveland.

It looked like the beat up better team (Sox) vs. a juggernaut that couldn't be stopped (Rockies).

Because the Rockies won the pennant so quickly, they had a lot of time before the world series.

That week off proved to kill their momentum. They lost the World Series in 4 straight.

I see the same thing happening to the Suns.

This week off favors the Lakers in so many ways, it's not even funny.

OUTSTANDING POST...TIM...4-SURE

Art and 11:40:18 AM

I suppose there is a small minute possibility the crab could shock the world tonight but if history serves us right so far he hasn't shown to possess one single clutch vein in his body.. This is probably the BIGGEST and most pressure packed game of his career... esp coming after his biggest flame out of his career, elimination and on the road with all eyes watching.. This may well define his career so its prob too much pressure for him to handle....

I expect the crab to be more agressive and look for his shots to start the game.. Don't expect that J to fall so expect him to keep driving the lane.. The real question is how much of a role will the refs play.. Will they make same calls on BOTH ends or will they try to set the tone early by killing the celts agression?

Can't get much better than this.. Damn hope I can make the chat...

Mamba24,

Dude, don't troll.

Trolling is bad karma. Do you want fricken bad karma?

I don't want your bad karma as a part of Laker Nation! We don't need it.

Every troll will have its day of reckoning. Don't be a troll.

Listen, dude, out here in the Land of the False King, do you know the crap I've had to deal with? Do you know how many times I've had people literally scream in my face "KOBE'S A RAPIST!"?

Do you know how many fights I've had to step back from as "the better man" simply because someone found out I was a Lakers' fan?

Do you know how many times I've had people initiate smack talk on me ripping on the Lakers, Kobe in particular, and pontificating about how LeBron is the Greatest EVER? Do you?

It's been a multi-event per week with consistency for the long years I've been here.

Do I troll? NEVER!

Instead I silently listen to these morons spew diahreah from the mouth and when they've finished I unblinkingly state, "Yeah, you're new money. We'll do our talking on the court."

You're a representative of Laker Nation. Do so with some dignity.

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

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

GO LAKERS!!!

*****MISSING PERSON ALERT***** LeBron Raymone James, Cleveland OH age 25. DOB 12/30/84. Reported missing 5/11/10. Last seen taken to school by Rajon Rondo. Not heard from since NIKE stopped running the puppet commercials. James might be in need of medical attention for elbow. Any info leading authorities to find LeBron or his game please call 1-800-FAKE-MVP

can't claim that one in my last post....saw it on facebook and had to share...

EastCoastJessie,

Your Laker brethren are telling me you`re a beautiful Latina?
Seriously, you live in the Jamaica Plains area?

Big Papi, Manny Ramirez, and Pedro Martinez all hung out there.

Stop with all this Red Sox talk, and even though my Yankees are also (my Lakers) the 2009 Champs, I still remember 2004, UGGGGGH!

Hey guys we got a new post up

MM

ATim-4-Show,

All great points. Thanks.

YELLOFINGER… “This may well define his career so its prob too much pressure for him to handle....” It would be sweet if Game 5 became the defining event in LeBron’s career, the game that sets the stage for his future demise, much like Ray Fosse after Pete Rose ran him over at home plate or Atlee Hammaker after the American League crushed him and his future in the All-Star game.
