Kobe Bryant appears in new Vitaminwater ad

Lakers guard Kobe Bryant may have given closeout duties to Derek Fisher in the team's 91-84 victory Tuesday over the Boston Celtics in Game 3 of the NBA Finals, but in no way does that diminish his ability to make clutch shots. Heck, despite battling a broken index finger, back spasms and sprained left ankle, Bryant made seven game-winners. He scored at least 30 points in 10 of the last 14 games. And despite his questionable shot selection in Game 3, Bryant proved largely instrumental in setting screens for Fisher.

That's why it should come as no surprise that in a new Vitaminwater commercial as the "kloser," meaning that the dictionary now features photos of both Bryant and Fisher, whom Lakers forward Lamar Odom said would appear under the word "clutch." Bryant also pokes fun at his disastrous photo shoot with Los Angeles Times Magazine, showing that he's cheered up a tad in the last month since the magazine's release.

M2,

Thank you so much for the honor of RCOTD. Your generosity of spirit is greatly appreciated.

Hey....

Where's that Back2Back Payback BW?

Oh, it taste so sweet. And there's still a whole bunch left. Want some? Want some sweet revenge?

You guys do realize what this means right? We're gonna suffer another year of people comin on here and slamming fish. After this there is no way you don't bring fish back. Don't you think he has earned the right to not be slammed in the regular season?

LAKERS ALL THE WAY BABY!!!!
2010 NBA CHAMPS!!!!

Rick F. -

Forgot to say congrats on the Reader Comment of the Day. It is well deserved. :-)

I love the commercial. Quite hilarious! Although I still think that the LO Powerbar commercial was funnier. :-)

Rule # 7

The fish will be preserved in salmon flavor only for playoffs. Let another PG run the season and bring back the Fish during playoffs. He is destined for last minute heroics.

I wonder what Celtic fans feel on this day like Red's night and day turn around. They slept late last night when game ended by midnight Boston time. They have been thinking all day, this game is on the bag and no more going back to LA. Suddenly, they are awakened by rude reality that they're vulnerable in their home court. Today, they're sleepy after waking up at 6am to go to work, weary during noon breaks still thinking that slipped away by this old Fisher whom the scouts referred as slow and old and yet, he is the one who did the damage. The players are tired of listening to the growl of Doc, the crowd are tired of yelling "beat LA" or Kobe is no good, those chants have no effects. It seems that LA people got them all, the glamour, the weather while the Celtics got their old players intact from Russell to KG, lol!

Fisher was already coming back next season whether or not we won the series, the game, or if Fisher played awesome or not.

The Fisher issue is a little more macro than this one series - we need a long term solution. The man simply cannot play the minutes at the quality we need for another 8 seasons. <-- therein lies my complaint this past season.

Having said that...
AWESOME GAME DEREK!!! The best yet!

@RICK FRIEDMAN, WHATS THIS NOW RICK A 3PEAT ON ROCD, TRYING TO COMPETE WITH PHIL HUH? CONGRATS BRO. YOU DESERVE IT!

(00) JON K. - OWNER – Mike T will you apologize when the Lakers destroy the Celtics? Bring on the Celtics!
(01) JUSTANOTHERMAMBAFAN - DRIVER
(02) FATTY - RIDING SHOTGUN - Roses are Red Violets are Blue Lakers to the Celtics
(03) ZairaAmaterasu - ENFORCER/BLOG GODDESS - To have BSPN keeping playing Lakers out is just a point in favour AND a point of honour. 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. That trials create the best bet possible after. Fatty - Let the war begin. First on the blogs, then on the court. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKmS_IGw_s4&feature=related
(04) #4 – CARETAKER OF DYNASTY 4 -Nice of the Celtics to show up. Shortened the interval down from 22 years this time, eh? Nothing's bitter when you're the reigning champs. Welcome challengers, lol.
(05) MR.NANO – PATH FINDER - Only a few thoughts: 1- I've said it: Lakers in 6. Sorry stevie, i've told you.2- We haven't won anything -real- yet. 3- Slovenian players are anoying even between them.
4- Lakers v/s C's, Lakers in 6 (although, they can win in 5). Now: THE PAYBACKI hope our players came to the blog to sneak a peek. I hope our players have the 131-92 video in all their electronic devices, just to remember. I hope our players change their ringtones to "Beat LA!"
I hope our players changing room papered with that 2008 finals (like Farmar did with Morrison, but with real effects). I hope that a green 2008 champions watch our team practices from now on.
I hope they remember, because we remember. Now only the glory is enough!! We will prevail!!
For the championship: GO LAKERS!!!!!!
(06) ADRIAN PALOMAR - RIDING SHOTGUN2
(07) XYZ – SEARGENT AT ARMS - I watched the trophy presentation and the team looks like it's very focused and ready to go against the celts.......Phil said that they are looking forward to this series with great intensity........what a great line.......coop even chimed in, saying "Boston, u wanted us.....we're coming for u".......and if u saw magic's commentary on espn, u can see that the old competitive juice started flowing within him........as a die hard laker fan, I'm all lathered up and ready for this classic finals matchup......
(08) FEARLESS - SECURITY -
(09) OUTLAW - SECURITY 2 - To all my fellow Lakers fans: This is what we've been waiting for. Thursday, baby. It's gonna be fun. Go Lake Show!
(10) BABY OUTLAW - SECURITY IN TRAINING – You Heard Dad!
(11) WES JOE NIXON - MORALE OFFICER - Someone must have given this speech last night: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYzt1ao81jU
(12) FAN OF THE MAMBA - I'm absolutely hyped about the Lakers going to the NBA Finals for three straight years. Which brings me to my soapbox. How the hell is that not one of the major stories right now. Every media outlet since we clinched our game 6 victory is talking about the Celtics. The big three, Rondo, the Celtics Defense, but there's very little being reported about our third straight trip to the finals. If it was any other team that's all we'd be hearing. Well I'm here to shout it loud and shout it proud! The Lakers are going to the Finals for the 3rd straight year. That is an awesome accomplishment for any team. Injuries haven't stopped them, officiating hasn't stop them, team chemistry issues haven't stopped them, up and down play hasn't stopped them, and the Celtics won't stop them either!
(13) JOHNNYP – DIRECTOR OF WIN # 1 OF FINALS - WE AARE GOIN' TO THE FINALS!!! OUR DYNASTY IS CEMENTED. 3 out of 4 years !! HOW GOOD IS THAT??? WHOOOOPIE !!!
(14) VMAN – THE TERMINATOR - THe coming war is the reason Ron Artest is a Laker. His basketball career was aimed at this purpose. Pierce is about to visit Ron's park, where it's hard to breath and legs are heavy. Just 4 mo' blog bros.
(15) BRONXLAKERFAN – REFEREE - Art-FL Lakers Fan....Kudos, my friend. That adaptation of "Casey at the Bat" was clever and extremely well done. I'm printing it to save as a memento of the Laker's 2010 playoff run which will hopefully end with the C'ship. Thanks!
(16) Nemaia Faletogo - LAKERS IN 6
(17) LAKERFANIN OKC - DIRECTOR OF WIN #2 FINALS -
(18) RICK FRIEDMAN - Michael Jordan was the NBA's White Knight, whose glorious journey put the sport on the map. Kobe Bryant is its Dark Knight, who takes wonderment to its most breathtaking and leaves us gasping while moaning for more. Kobe Bryant. Laker. Greatest of All Time. Ever!
(19) YELLOW FEVER - COACH -
(20) Ruud van Nistelrooy - STATISTICIAN –
(21) Nemaia Faletogo – Lakers in 6 Nuff Said!
(22) CARLOS DEEP – Make room for me. 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
(23) HUGO BOSS - 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.
(24) 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 & a great defensive guru in Thibodeau. We have the Zen Master & 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!!
(25) 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.
(26) ART-FL LAKER FAN - BLOG POET LAURETE
(27) SHE-KOBE - 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 & nothing & nobody can take it from us.
(28) D(EREK) J(ETER) - If I am not too late for the Laker Bandwagon, put me on board! do think it's funny about all this sweep talk on either side. I think it will be 6 or 7. Of course I am with the Lakers. I thought Suns would lose to us in 7, but 6 was much nicer!
(29) INFAMOUS EL GUAPO – GRENADE TOSSER - Put me on the Armageddon Bandwagon!!! I don't need a seat I'll Be ridding on the roof Tossing Grenades, Manning the 50 Cal Machine Gun, The flame throwers and swinging El Guapo's Pair Machetes named "Death" an "Doom"!! And I'll be picking off every little green leprechaun zombie all the way to the Larry O'Brien!!!!
(30) TIM-4-SHOW - No Mercy. Back2Back Payback! YEAH!! A few weeks ago I pondered if we would see more of the former Kobe or more of the struggling Kobe. Three weeks later and Kobe has most definitely answered it. Not only is he himself again, but he's currently putting together one of the most impressive playoff runs in the history of basketball. Should he pull this off in the next round, what you have just witnessed has been nothing short of spectacular. Mbenga on Perkins would be AWESOME If they want to get rough, put in the black belt that defied death. LOLOLOLOLThis is going to be epic great. I truly believe you're witnessing the crowning achievement of Kobe and the Lakers.
(31) RDLEE – MERCY DISPENSER - 12 down, 4 to go. No mercy!
(32) DWNTWN ATTY - As we all know, the real question is whether the Celtics' defense will be stiff enough to hold us back. I'm think it won't be, but our bigs will need to come out angry and determined -- our shooters hitting shots. and Kobe -- well we know Kobe is going to show up! that was a kobe performance for the vault. Close out game, closeout shots. No chance was Kobe going to lose this game.
(33) New Mexico Laker lifer - Lighten up and enjoy the JOURNEY. Lakers in 6
(34) RON – I still remember clearly the pain and anguish of the 39 pt drubbing like yesterday and have always dreamed of the day when we would face Boston again. "If only" we had homecourt two years ago I was thinking...well we have it now....and now it's nervous time. The key is to contain Rondo and Pierce. For all those people who criticized getting Artest over Ariza, this is why we made the move! Pierce was able to dominate Orlando because no one could guard him--he won't have that luxury this time around. But the biggest key will be if Pau and Lamar show up big in this series. Bynum is the big question mark but his presence alone in the middle already helps the Lakers out tremendously. Kobe will have a much more difficult time against the Celtics' defense, but he will be clutch when it matters, you can bet on that. It is time to exorcise those demons once and for all and to rid ourselves of this lingering ghost once and for all. If the Lakers are to win back-to-back titles, who better to defeat than the Boston Celtics? We hate the Celtics with a passion and winning it all against Boston will be the sweetest thing since '85. 'Nuff said.
(35) ALLNET - Remember when, after the game 6 loss to the Celtics in the ’08 Finals, Artest got into the Lakers’ locker room and made his way over to the showering Kobe? Recall what Artest reportedly said? “I want to come help you. If I can, I’m gonna find a way to come to L.A. and help you win the title.” Well, Ron-Ron, your big chance is about to arrive. And against that same evil nemesis, the Celts. May your words – and the defense to back them – prove ever true!
(36) LAKERTOM - Once again, my prediction is the Lakers to win in 6 games, taking the first 2 at home, 1 of 3 in Boston, and then closing out the Celtics in Game 6 in LA. That’ll set the stage to win our 17th title in 2011.
(37) LAKERMIKE - This single point of maturity is in my opinion a VERY significant element in The Finals. It would seem to be a low-risk prediction to say that at least once a big lead will be lost in the end, with either Celtics or Lakers grabbing a great come-from-behind victory. I like what I have seen. I am anxious for that series-determining comeback game to unfold!
(38) TOM DANIELS

(40) LAKERGURL(THE ONE AND ONLY)
(41) PSYCHED-LAKERGIRL
(42) EDWIN GUECO – JUDGE/JUROR/EXECUTIONER - If you want to be identified with the winner, come to the Los Angeles Lakers, home of the brave and beautiful people. We don't need to yell "beat Celtics" or "beat Boston", your team looks like a beaten Goliath as Big Baby stumbles and dazed in the extended games of the season.
(43) EASTCOASTJESSIE – TEAM LAWYER
(44) MAMBA24 – I RIDE WITH THE PRINCESS
(45) ICELAKER - I loved seeing the hate and intensity in Michael Cooper's eyes when he told Boston "You wanted us, here we come!" These Lakers are angry right about now. I really fear for the celtics come thursday. I know Pierce needed a wheelchair in '08. He's gonna need a stretcher once Ron Ron is done: "If you're not strong enough, you shouldn't be fighting with me. If you can't match my strength then why would you try to pick a fight and test me?" I'm hoping for Lakers in 5. I want them to celebrate on the Gah-den's floor.
(46) SEGEBOY- THE SHERIFF - Yo words can not describe how proud I am that we're returning to the finals for the 3rd year in a row. We started the 55 win bandwaggon when we were running with smush parker, we believed so hard in our team and they laughed in our faces. They gonna respect us yo cuz we ain't asking for it, we're here to work for it, to fight for it, to cement our place in history. I love this team yo. And shout out to our PGs for their play last game, y'all know we keep calling u d weakest link but nobody's happier when u prove us wrong. Fish u d man. Our time is freaking here and the next series is against our arch enemies, the green weanies from the east. In the words of 300 ... we're gonna take everything from them and give nothing back ... F the celtics and anyone who loves em.
(47) MAGIC PHIL - Well, let's ask somebody who really understand the game: - Kobe, who do you think is gonna win the championship? - We will So, I get the word of King Mamba. LAKERS IN 3!!!! I MEAN, LAKERS IN 4!!!
(48) LAKERS RULE(AMIT)
(49) PHRED
(50) JAC - The most arrogant, narcissistic franchise ever. They refuse to give ANYONE credit but themselves. Even when they lose, they act like they won. I don't understand how anyone can liek their franchise. All I want to do is own them and celebrate in front of them ON their home floor ( or ours). I'm disgusted by them. I don't understand how the media can go from saying they will be eliminated, to crowning them the champs. Lets face it, they are a bunch of babies whose prime is over. They will not be the 10 champs, and I hope they never get close to a championship again!
(51) KEIFO –
(52) ANOTHERBLACKMAMBA - I hate PAUL PIERCE PERIOD. Celtics basically bought the championship in 2008 with 3 franchise players in one team. Pierce Celtics sucked ass before KG and Ray Allen and now all of a sudden he is freaking a showboat. KG is another showboat. You know there is no way Celtics is gonna win the finals. Just look at Suns, how steve nash and raja bell and ...were showing off in 2006/7 when Kobe was playing with bunch of trolls. I wonder how far Steve Nash would have taken a team with Kwame Brown and Smush.
I wanna bitchslap Paul Pierce and KG. I just hate Paul Pierce or I should say Paula Pierce THE QUEEN of Celtics.
(53) WINTON DUPREE - What's better than the NBA2K10 championship? The real NBA 2010 championship, and not only will we get this one, we will pass the next one as well. We are living in great times Laker fans. Enjoy!
(54) JOE CORAD - I rather see the Lakers Hoist the Hearts of the celtic team than the trophy, lol. Actually i take it back, i want to see the Lakers hoisting the trophy while stomping on the hearts of the Celtics.
(55) LET’S GO L’S -To wrap this 2010 FINALS in a bow, here's the deal...as long as the Lakers PLAY HARD, INSPIRED basketball for 48 minutes each game on both ends of the floor, with a heavy dose of patient INTERIOR play (making their bigs MOVE and FOUL prone) and "consistent" perimeter defense (chasing guys like Allen, Wallace, Pierce OFF the three-point area via Fisher, Artest, Odom, and Kobe), they will hang their 16th NBA Championship banner. Most of all, win it ALL with a CHIP on their shoulder, injuries, adversity and all, for the debacle in 2008. The Lakers SURELY need no MOTIVATION! Also, their demeanor after winning the WC title in Phoenix spoke many volumes... Go get em' Lakers like you did in 2009...Back to Back! Laker pride through ALL and ANY ADVERSITY!
(56) Nop BKK 10122 - Dumb simulation...you will find out later...Lakers in 5... 3 NBA final in 3 years with 2 championship...hey Mr.Simulation...what is the prediction of 2011 NBA Final ??? uhhh...
(57) LEFRAUDS ELBOW - Thursday can't come soon enough. Revenge will be sweet.
(58) WILLIAM WALLACE - NBA 2K9 Simulation predicted that the Magic would win last year in 5 games so the fact that they predict the Celtics this year is probably a good thing for Laker fans.
(59) STEFAN MARTIN –
(60) BAJO - A couple of thoughts regarding mental toughness between the last series and this one: Celtics do not have Posey and House, who were really tough off the bench in that series, which is a loss. Lakers have Artest as starter in place of Radmanovic, which is an uptick. Lakers have home court advantage. So I am thinking that if mental toughness was an advantage for Boston last time, it is not so this time
(61) 2PHATT - This series will not be a cakewalk, all hands on deck CANDY MAN, THRILLER and the BEAST BYNUM (no more excuses). All I want to see is @zz and elbows, FOCUS, DEFENSE and more DEFENSE, the evil one's will try to intimidate and PUNK us with their physical play. Repeat after me" WE WILL NOT BE MOVED, FORCE WITH FORCE". The X FACTORS, the bench needs to bring it every game on the defensive side with some timely offense. PREDICTION- LAKERS IN 7 (P.S. I hope the parade routs the same, I had great seats.) Gooooo LAKERS
(62) LAKEERSRYDEORDIE - If we beyotch slap them on the boards -- we will bust their ass! Believe that. Lakers all the way baybee --- otherwise DIE!
(63) LEONARDBAST78 - Let's Go Lakers! Bring that Championship home! (kobe puppet to Lebron puppet, "Hey Lebron, have you seen my 5 championship rings?")
(64) LAKERTRUHT - Kobe: True Warrior, why do you help me? (pause for uncomfortable silence, as both characters gaze at each other) Ron (finally whispers): Because of the way you are looking at me now. Kobe: You have bled with TMac and Yao, NOW BLEED WITH ME! CHAAAAARGE, KILL THE CELTS!

Repost

Well it has been too long. I've missed you guys. New internet privacy settings at work but I have to relish this with my fam.

Quick ADHD thoughts

Boston misses having Cassell, House, Posey, Powe and Brown as their second unit.

We had Radman who was subtraction by addition, a not fully recovered Ariza and no Bynum. And then Turiaf lost his gusto after the Flagrant Foul call during the Utah series.

Bynum playing through his pain = man up ism's.

When LO plays enough, we win. When he plays well, we dominate. He played enough last night.

Fisher is King.

I believe Ron-ron is that family member. THAT one.

Fish needs to be with the team next year, I hope he takes the veteran's minimum.

These refs need a crash course on the instant replay.

KG's Farmar kick. Someone needs give KG a peeler Crunch Bar.
http://tinyurl.com/38uexxd

I hope Paul Pierce is right about not going back to LA. Did he Guaransheed?

Off to Game 3.

Love you all and don't know when I will post or view from work.

Outro.

Charles from the Kbros days...

Charles -

It's great to see you, if only for a minute. Hope your day is well. :-)

Nike and Vitamin water obtained the good part of their loyalty to Bryant while McDonald and Sprite (I guess) abandoned him during his court trials. Last year, the Ads were the puppets, unfortunately this year puppet Le Bronze is just a story line looking for another team. LeBron should be in the Finals, nope the LBJ went for the final curtain and goes to Larry King to recall his heroics or memoirs. Cleveland Cavaliers owner changed Coach and then GM, so they have decided that Lebron is not coming back.

On the other picture, Lakers will have Kobe, Gasol, Bynum, Artest and LO still in the roster. Most probably, Fisher will be re-signed with a new contract plus another PG who will run the season. I think Phil Jackson will also come back for he has done a heck of job in bringing the Lakers to the Finals. Last February, nobody thought of this scenario with its players going down one after the other. How they survived the crisis and met the challenges were the story of the Lakers. They were helped by Suns and Jazz in eliminating their noisy challengers namely: Mavs., Nuggets and Blazers in the West and Celtics in defeating Cavs., Magic in the East.

So far the Finals is 2-1 anything still could happen in the four games. Lakers should seek an insurance victory of one more game before coming back to LA. Never underestimate the Leprechauns capability of coming back, the pressure on them is high, let's keep it up by turning more notch and tightening the screw. We got their balls now lets try to squeeze them furthermore. lol!

@ Calli P

Chest pound!

Great to see a Charles sighting. Chest pound, bro.

Gotta say:

I'm reminded of Ty Cobb's quote about Babe Ruth " he runs pretty well for a fat man"... when I watch Davis play. LO has had his problems in this series and some of that is due to the fact that he's not the best matchup for Baby. The Babe stays in front of him and, as I've mentioned about 4 thousand times, Lamar's un- developed mid range Karl Malone game would come in handy about now.

Ray won't shoot that bad. Pierce has got to play better than this, shouldn't he? I mean at least one of the games? KG peaked. Stick a fork in Rasheed. Rondo's good but anybody else gain a bit of perspective seeing him being interviewed by Magic Johnson? Numbers don't tell the story. There's a couple more rungs of the ladder left to climb till you look the Magic Man in the eye.

This Game 3 win obviously gave us a temporary reprieve from the infestation of Trolls and Haters, but I'm sure they'll be back in full swing tomorrow...

Until then, enjoyin' all this Laker Love!!!

Charles, where have u been my friend? I was worried about your shoulder injuries as the reason why you are not blogging anymore. Well, good that you are busy but try to visit us once in a while and share your views. We need more enforcer now that Sheriff Taliq is no longer posting and changed his name. Utz is also busy while Justa and Fatty are no show. What's going on, are you guys getting old and getting tired easily by trolls? JonK, LT and I are permanent fixtures with thick skin to parry all the attacks. EX moved to the other blog, his one liners have been misplaced in the grand scheme of trolls.

Well, KBros must be feeling lonely to composed such good write-ups with few participants. They relegated themselves to other side show like podcasts or guests on Mason and Ireland. Well, 710 have boring announcers they're no match to Hartman and VicDaBrick. Our Mark Medina seldom posts, he's busy entertaining big names as his dates during lunch hour. He is now one of the stars.

Yeah I realize that fish was comin back next year regardless, and we still have a problem in that we need him to play fewer minutes especially in the regular season, I'm just tired of all the people sayin he's worthless! His value has always been in the post season.

LAKERS ALL THE WAY BABY!!!!
2010 NBA CHAMPS!!!!

Yo, can I get a ride on that payback bandwagon? Revenge sure is sweet ain't it.

LAKERS ALL THE WAY BABY!!!!
2010 NBA CHAMPS!!!!

It's amazing how all these D-Fish haters and doubters are now quick to say, "we must bring Fisher back next year." Throughout the year, I have continuously came to these blogs and all the ranting and raving was about how Fisher was done, he was too old, that Farmar should start over him, etc....Where are they now? I have always believed and have even posted on here before that Fisher embodies all the intangibles that are needed to become a champion. Even more so, it is Fisher who time and time again proves that he is the won who is willing and believes in himself to make the big shot. While other Lakers were scared to drive the paint and make plays, Fisher sacrificed his body and "WILLED" those shots as Van Gundy said. After the game was over I almost wanted to choke up too for Fisher. The guy has been through a lot in his personal life and career and with all the negativity that was surrounding him this year, I felt the emotion he showed. I understood that the guy really just loves this team, this city, and is truly thankful to GOD for his gifts. I had the fortunate opportunity to meet Fisher at a restaurant called Stevie's in Encino some years ago. When we yelled "FISHHHH" he walked all the way from the other side of the restaurant where he was getting his food, came over to our table, and greeted us before he said he was in a hurry cause he had to take some food home. Derek Fisher is a truly genuine person and I am glad the Lakers have a player with such character and determination. If we do not re-sign him, we will be losing a vital to piece to another 3-peat!
GO DEREK FISHER!

So I'm reading the Plaschke article about Fish and while the lionizing is nice, he's going down the wrong path when he talks about how old creaky Fish is, how he lives in the shadows and all this stuff. Plaschke's maing it seem like Derek's ready for a warm blanket and wheelchair. Fish has never been the quickest guard around but he's hardly creaky. The dude's as strong has they come and hasn't missed a game in three friggin' years. So put away the charitable serenades, Fish is doing just fine and he'll be around a while longer, taking charges and out-hustling his opponents. In the purple and gold I might add.

SIR CHARLES!! Hey Brother!!! It's been too long. How you been?

63) LEONARDBAST78 - Let's Go Lakers! Bring that Championship home! (kobe puppet to Lebron puppet, "Hey Lebron, have you seen my 5 championship rings?")
(64) LAKERTRUHT - Kobe: True Warrior, why do you help me? (pause for uncomfortable silence, as both characters gaze at each other) Ron (finally whispers): Because of the way you are looking at me now. Kobe: You have bled with TMac and Yao, NOW BLEED WITH ME! CHAAAAARGE, KILL THE CELTS!
(65) Rule #7 (The Weapon) - Yo, can I get a ride on that payback bandwagon? Revenge sure is sweet ain't it.

LAKERS vs. CELTICS - THE FINAL PAYBACK, ARMAGEDON HAS ARRIVED - BANDWAGON

(00) SIR CHARLES - CEO - Boston misses having Cassell, House, Posey, Powe and Brown as their second unit. We had Radman who was subtraction by addition, a not fully recovered Ariza and no Bynum. And then Turiaf lost his gusto after the Flagrant Foul call during the Utah series. Bynum playing through his pain = man up ism's. When LO plays enough, we win. When he plays well, we dominate. He played enough last night. Fisher is King. I believe Ron-ron is that family member. THAT one. Fish needs to be with the team next year, I hope he takes the v eteran's minimum. These refs need a crash course on the instant replay. KG's Farmar kick. Someone needs give KG a peeler Crunch Bar. http://tinyurl.com/38uexxd I hope Paul Pierce is right about not going back to LA. Did he Guaransheed? Off to Game 5. Love you all and don't know when I will post or view from work. Outro.
(00) JON K. - OWNER – Mike T will you apologize when the Lakers destroy the Celtics? Bring on the Celtics!
(01) JUSTANOTHERMAMBAFAN - DRIVER
(02) FATTY - RIDING SHOTGUN - Roses are Red Violets are Blue Lakers to the Celtics
(03) ZairaAmaterasu - ENFORCER/BLOG GODDESS - To have BSPN keeping playing Lakers out is just a point in favour AND a point of honour. 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. That trials create the best bet possible after. Fatty - Let the war begin. First on the blogs, then on the court. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKmS_IGw_s4&feature=related
(04) #4 – CARETAKER OF DYNASTY 4 -Nice of the Celtics to show up. Shortened the interval down from 22 years this time, eh? Nothing's bitter when you're the reigning champs. Welcome challengers, lol.
