Ron Artest talks President Obama, 'Sex and the City 2'; Lamar Odom anticipates Boston jeers at Khloe Kardashian

Only in a Ron Artest news conference do the topics of President Obama and "Sex and the City 2" come up. He also provides an interesting take on the transformation to becoming Kobe Bryant's teammate after playing against him. "It's like I was watching TV, jumped into the screen and I turned into [Scottie] Pippen."

On a somewhat more serious note, Artest breaks down his match-up with Celtics forward Paul Pierce.

Lakers forward Lamar Odom anticipates that the Lakers-Celtics Finals match-up will go beyond what's happening on the court. For one, he predicts his wife, Khloe Kardashian, will be a favorite target among Celtics fans.

And Odom says he thought Boston would make the NBA Finals since the season started, because of its experience.

CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR BOSTON
You hoped you pleaded you asked for this, Well Freakin Celtics you got your wish
You chanted and you chanted 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 player 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.
To what gentlemen we can be, We’ll let you hold the rope at our Ring Cermony
You aint got no excuses when you fall, You just met your Masters in Basketball
Tell Paula aint no shame in defeat, Stand up like a Man & get out that Wheelchair seat
Tell that 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, Who vows to wipe that soft reputaion away
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!!!!!

Laker Land: where all that is possible and even a lot of what is impossible happens on a daily basis.
History repeats to the same patterns, but evolving from them to a more perfected reality, round after round. So we are the same: just better than last time. And we are getting better with every step more we take within the future. @ : ZAIRA AMATERASU

To get through the hardest journey we need take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping” basketball is a journey, teams learn about their weaknesses and strengths as they play along all 82 games. so let's enjoy this journey with our team. onto the next win :) @ J24 aka (LADYJEM24)

LIKE FINE ART. . .--stand too close, and the brilliance cannot be fully appreciated --pass judgment before the masterpiece is complete, and short-change the genius of the process Nobody ever marvels at the canvas underneath the final presentation, but instead the magnificance of the finished product.

When Dark threatens to extinguish Light, Lakers and Celtics collide. When Good and Evil can't coexist for another second, Lakers / Celtics collide. When Love is threatened by Hate, Lakers / Celtics collide
The path is clear. It's time to get ugly, turn up the tough. Pain? what pain? Injuries? Cut me.
No Fear, the Suns shall illuminate our path, aid in our preparation for the battle ahead.
The Good, the Light, the Love, will Prevail... Rise Up! GO Lakers! @ VMAN

In my mind's eye, both the Lakers and Celtics are rushing towards each other in the fashion that they have in years past. Matching each other, blow-for-blow, against all-comers until the time to meet together arrives. They are looking squarely in the others direction while they simultaneously brush aside any with the misguided notion that they are also contenders. It is the same as how Bruce Lee will casually vanquish all of the Big Boss' henchmen on his way to the real dance. It is all about Boston. It has always been about Boston. Boston is the only franchise that has earned our respect...and our derision. @ FEARLESS http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqBQeRmuZQI&feature=related Lets Get dirty

Kobe can win THROUGH his team mates. He can win WITH his team mates. He can win DEFERRING to his team mates. He can win IN SPITE OF his team mates. He can win INSTEAD of his team mates. He can even win BY HIMSELF (just ask Dallas & Toronto). Champions are forged in the 4th quarter. Franchises are defined in the 4th quarter. Dynasties are cemented in the 4th quarter. Sit back & watch PJ, Kobe & Fish orchestrate this symphony we call Lakers basketball to another parade down Figueroa Blvd.@ FEARLESS

I say TONIGHT!!! KOBE BRYANT will have one of the GREATEST SINGULAR GAMES in the history of the game. In the history of the known universe. Many refer to 'THE SWITCH' as though it is tangible, physical object in someones control. The truth is that THE SWITCH is one that can only be ACTIVATED by the SPIRIT, and by METAPHYSICAL FORCES. In the case of Kobe Bryant, the switch is the PLAYOFFS and the BACK AGAINST THE WALL, ELIMINATION GAME. From there, the chattering of the masses shuts off, the instruction of SPIRITUAL MASTERS & SENSEI can be more easily understood, and the HEART OF A LION can be revealed in it's truest form. What the team needs more than coaching, more than new players, more than just a simple win streak is a chance. It needs a MOMENT. It needs a SWORD wielded from a rock that only ONE MAN can retrieve to be struck at the right time. It needs a GAME. It needs a thriller. In it's DARKEST HOUR . It needs a MOMENT. I say, it needs a thriller. I SAY IT NEEDS KOBE BRYANT. The Moderator Universal Love Corp. @ The Moderator | http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGOB7bjaq-w&feature=related Kobe immortality

What's the matter with you? I think your brain is going soft with all that comedy you are playing with that young girl. Never tell anyone outside the Family what you are thinking again. Go on.

Thank you for that Mamba. Awesome as always Sir!!!

On a side note...Lamar should worry about his game on the court and leave his wife at home if he's so worried about the ruthless (frankly, just a bunch of idiots) Boston fans.

Lakers got an advantage, the Celtics are down by one of their cheerleaders, one of the "Golden Girls" died. They'll probably wear black arm bands, or use a Sharpie and put ''R.M." on the back of one of their shoes.

Did you feel that?

Did you feel that strange precious moment?

Like a hushed whisper just out of reach...

Like a sneeze interrupted...

Like an inverted hiccup...

Like a ball of swollen silence torn from the rabble of cacophony...

Did you feel it?

On the streets of Ventura Boulevard...

While walking down Sepulveda...

On Lincoln Boulevard...

Down Imperial Highway...

On the concrete of Figueroa Boulevard...

Did you feel it?

Among the trolls there was a sudden shivered shudder...

It was happening and there was nothing they could do to stop it.

Everything had fallen into place.

And everything has its moment.

In the collective consciousness of Laker Nation, I ask you, "Did you feel it?"

Because today is a good day.

Today is the day history is made.

Today is the day when destiny is revealed.

Today is the day when balance is restored, redemption is manifest, and wrongs are made right.

Today is that day.

And, my fellow Lakeraholics, today is the day when it is made clear JON K. IS RETURNING HOME!!!!!

AFTER YEARS OF INTERNMENT AMONG LEBRONIACS AND HATERS, TODAY IS THE DAY JON K. HAS ACCEPTED A JOB IN LOS ANGELES WORKING IN PUBLISHING ONCE MORE!!!!

For TODAY is a GOOD, GOOD DAY!!!!!

NOW LET'S GO OUT THERE AND BEAT US DOWN SOME SEPTICS!!!

TODAY IS A DAY OF CELEBRATION!!!!

TODAY IS A DAY WHEN REAL FANS KNOW WHAT IT IS TO FEEL JOY!!!!

TODAY IS THAT DAY!!!!

REAL FANS MAKE NOISE!!!

ABOVE ALL, ABOVE ALL MY FRIENDS, BE REAL!!!!

What do we play for? RINGS!!!!

We are so proud of you!

I know this a post or so ago, but I did find evidence that Celtic fans are indeed smart.

Indeed, they are 'wicked smaht', lol.

JON K, been following your stories for awhile now, and I say congrats to you on your new job.

LA is the place to be. It just is.

I hope Boston fans make Lamar Odom very, VERY mad.

Make fun of a man's wife could be a very, VERY bad think for Bostonions, but they can't help themselves because they're scumbags. That's what scumbags do.

hey mamba,
you forgot to roll call this laker fan.

It takes an emperor
to rule an empire.

Of course,
but leave the people their--

Illusions?

Traditions.

My father's war
against the barbarians--

He said it himself: it achieved nothing.
But the people loved him.

The people always love victories.

Why?

They didn't see the battles.

What do they care about Germania?

They care about
the greatness of Rome.

The greatness of Rome.

Well, what is that?

It's an idea--

greatness.

Greatness is a vision.

Exactly. A vision.

Do you not see, Lucilla?

I will give the people a vision of Rome,
and they will love me for it.

And they'll soon forget the tedious
sermonizing of a few dry old men.

I will give the people
the greatest vision of their lives.

White and red wine
for your drinking pleasure!

-------------------------------------

Watch Inglewood Pierce Take u Down Tonight! He is a Warrior!

WELCOME TO LA FAMILY Jon, one day I will ask for a favor.

Good evening (here it is...) Laker Fam.

So... we're a handful of hours away from our expectations meeting reality.

How does it feels?

Every year it changes for me.

It gets if possible even more intense, because I collect back memory of past expectations, a new seasons of rollercoaster emotions by my team (which make me a stronger fan actually. Experience works for players, but surely also for most dedicated fans...).

I feel like I will sleep soon today.

Waking up at 2.15 am to take coffee, turn tv on, turn chat on and LIVE the Magic.

Dunno how much I will be able to actually write sensefully in chat.

Finals totally bewilders me; and I hope they don't bewilders Lakers because we need focus, clarity, intensity and CALM.

I don't think it's fundamental to win game 1.
I want to win it.
But in a series like this one, really... you can't say Take it or Leave it until all has truly ended.

It's good to feel the pressure.
But to think we will be done losing Game 1 (a game is a game... it values 1 not 4) is the wrong kind of pressure.

This values for us AND for Celtics.

Like other said, this is a series that will be a battle drop of blood after drop of blood.

Not even if we would dominate today I would claim WE GOT IT.

No one will be ruled out until things are really over.

I love that you my fellow Lakerholics are so pumped you see a Swept over Boston: I am not really that convinced. Better... I would be shocked if we would sweep Green Enemies away.

I really don't think it's gonna happen.
But I still see us win.

I liked the note of Garnett about the peculiar stile of western teams. He says finesse and I call it CLASS. He says we are tough when needed, I say we can variate the intensity of our physical impact, because we have way more than just the physical card to show them off with. But I can't avoid to reckon Boston is a pretty tough team who likes to play that card priarly because well... they can. Not that they have just that, of course. But definitely they are loving to be thugs.

We can win that out with dedicated and smart play.
We have to be constantly focused. Which is why the physical level we can show now is really important.

It's the end of the season and we have never been healthy. We gotta use what we have left as forces SMARTLY.

We can.
We're by far the most IQ-ed team in NBA.
Let's hope that assurance won't make us complacent, or bye bye focus, and hello troubles.

I'm sorry for Bynum's knee, but he can still be a factor: no matter if he plays 15 minutes a game, those 15 can and MUST be gold.

Yesterday I had a scaring tv watch: one of my two fav Italian NBA chronists (Federico Buffa, a genius and a fellow Kobe Lover and Laker admirer) said:

"About the Final, I'm delighted it's Lakers Celtics because it's the best NBA can offer (true); at the start of the season I predicted Boston to win, and although now I'd love to be able to change my prediction, gotta stick with it."

Major bummer to me, but in fact Buffa's eyes (and his totally educated bball brain) were telling "I so see this being LA territory instead...".

So... point is it's gonna be beautiful and really difficult to figure out before it happens.

Too many dynamics, too many adjustaments possible.

I don't buy Celtics confidence, although I HOPE it's true: their overconfidence can only help us.

They think they face the same 2008 Lakers, but they have won in regular season against us after that only when Kobe was not really there.
Pau has already played okay against them.
He couldn't in 2008 after 3 months in LA... but he has after that.

Lamar has already done his stuff too.

Sure, Final ain't regular season.

But if Celtics are not the same in playoffs, so are we.

We're VERY similarly attituded teams.

We can try to deny that, but we all see how true that similarity is.

I wanna be Zen.
Analyze. Feel the rushing of life as it vivifies me. And be the best that I can be to reach the beast that I can reach.
This is what Kobe will do and our guys will follow through their leader.

But this is a sport game. Never forget it.
Sure, we have Kobe but Kobe alone can't beat the Celtics. not in a series.Kobe surrounded by ourother champions instead can be the atomic bomb that erases the series away and frees the Figueroa road for the next Parade.

I know my players are a wonderful team. With a wonderous leader. And they play for a wonderful town.

I SO disagree about Lakers fans at Staples.

While some of the celebrities at Staples are there only for PR purposes and they get NOTHING of bball, there are lots (and they are generally LA native, or La area native) of them who extrudes genuine passion about the game and actually know more about basketball than some of us here (word).

In LA the tickets for the game are INSANE.

For this game teh last two courtside seats were priced (hold on because it hurts in times like these) OVER $ 77.000. Yep. You read it correctly.
And while of course celebs can afford that, I get that you don't waste that sum of money for something you aren't at leat decently interested in (decode yourself how much).

Basketball is the most exciting sport.

Why celebrities should be immune by Lakers charm for real?

They might be richer and more ego-ed than us (wait... my ego is second to none ;)), but they love and get passionate about beauty of sport like every human being, being allowed to.

I think sometimes Lakers are just difficult to understand; their mentality, and LA mentality, is pretty unique.

To me that's actually a point in favour.

I love uniqueness.

I love that my team is tough when it is needed, but never thugs-on; I love that we can be deadly, but sometimes we like to wander around and rest and test fans' nerves; I love that we are so scenically powerful and at times totally crazy.

I love all this.

Because it hurts and then it delights.

It's something special nobody gets unless it's part of Lakers Family and that is.

I'm proud to be charmed by Purple and Gold.

Pierce should have shut up.

He just showed why he couldn't belong here.

He lacks imagination, and Lakers rule it instead.

So dear Lakers, prove yourself once more.

You're gonna have my unbound support and faith till the last minute.
Always.

Tank you for what you keep gifting me.

Sport can be so inspiring into life's real resolutions and behaviours.

To our Green Enemies: let this be fair.

I also hope like Magia this won't be a referee tricky sham.

Nor us nor Celts deserve that.

We are teh best NBA has to offer, which means the best competitive team sport has to show.
Don't degrade this beauty with poisoned tricks, please.
And I mean this ALSO if it would favourize us.

That wouldn't be a victory that I would be proud to claim after.

And I am sure real Celtics fans wouldn't either.

Let me say "catch you later" to you all, and allow me a lil bit of thank you to phred (man, you humbled me yesterday... thanx :)) and sonnybelfast. Wow, that was unexpected and really nice to know Sonny. Although no way I can change my heart. My heart is a huge golden one with purple core and lovely white profiles. It beats and pulses frantically (especially today) and is devoted to LaLaLand and my adored Kobe Bean.

I'm not meant to be Lakerholic: They just draw me that way ;).
And I wouldn't change that for no money in this world.

Later Fam ;)

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

If Bruce Lee was alive today, he would be Kobe Bryant.

That Kobe Bryant is really intense. I know this because he scrunches up his face, grits his teeth and clenches his fist at critical moments in games. He's not the yellow cur that lay on his back and exposed his belly in game 6 of the '08 Finals. Nope. He's Mr. Intensity now and it's all because he learned to make that face. Hours of practicing in the mirror have paid off.

I wanna be Zen. Analyze. Feel the rushing of life as it vivifies me. And be the best that I can be to reach the beast that I can reach.Posted by: ZairaAmaterasu | June 03, 2010 at 10:29 AM

I dunno what anyone else thinks, but I think Kendrick Perkins uses his last tech before suspension on a flagrant foul and makes it a good one. A clothesline or whatever. Might happen tonight, who knows, but its probably better (for them) earlier than later in the series.

Naw I don't think so. Doc, Paula & KG all have been in his face and schooled him. Plus ABC & Darth Stern would not let him or anybody else get thrown out of the Finals. THIS IS THE LAKERS AND CELTICS FINALS #4. Not one of those kockoff Spurs or MIami Heat Finals. Lol!

I am okay Perkins getting T'd up after slapping Pau and Bynum. Its okay to set the tone. No one enters the Paint.

On top of being soft .. you guys wear Yellow and Purple.. is it the color that makes you soft or you give yellow color soft name.. ahhh what do i care.. girls wear pink and and laker wear yellow..

I know there have to be some Celtic fans out there with some wit, luckily they never post on our blog.

Mamba dear... the beast that I can be is so much stuff to handle ;) Trust ;)

Catch you later... and don't trick sweet Justa ;) LOL.

Hugs :)

DANMMMN! Mark it's not time to bring out the big guns yet Bro! LMAO!!

Kobe Bryant is in total Beast Mode. Boston beware. OUT.


20FL


This may sound crazy, but I fully expect Perkins to get his technical today or the next game so he can do the suspension early in the series. I think after that, he needs 3 more to get suspended again. So if he gets it now, he has 3 "freebies" he can use for the rest of series..Just a thought.

WHATS WITH THE REPORTER, DOES HE NOT KNOW THE GAME IS ON TONITE AND what does sex in the city has to do with it...

As Bugs Bunny would say what a marooooon..he should not be allowed to ask questions again

Is a tinsel town or sports journalist?

GAME ON. WAR ON. ARMAGEDDON 12.0 ON!
-
Effective immediately, The Banner Holder is putting back on his Chaplain robe & returning to LA Times Lakers Blog to resume Game Day Prayers for the 2010 NBA Finals. Because we will need every last prayer submitted in this series.
-
This ain't about basketball. This is something deeper. It is Light vs. Darkness. The Lakers are Light. The Celtics are Darkness. Look at our dispositon vs. theirs. Look at our attitude vs. theirs. Look at the way we play vs. the way that play.
-
This is not a question of whether we can beat the Celtics. It's a question of whether our Light is powerful enough to overcome their Darkness. Heck...I wonder if, in order to subdue them, if we will have to become Darkness ourselves...
-
THE HECK WITH THAT! That's what they want. They will overpower us with their Darkness to tempt us to stoop to their dishonorable level of basketball. They will smash. They will kick. Before and after the fouls against them are called, they will commit at least 3 to 4 other fouls that the refs will not see.
-
But we can't give in to temptation. We have to hold on to the Light. Purple & Gold. Majesty & Glory. Through every cheap shot, every taunt & every scowl, we have to hold on to the Light. For LIGHT ALWAYS OVERCOMES DARKNESS!
-
On that note...LET US PRAY...
-
-
-
Dear Lord, we come before You thanking You for all of Your blessings. You are such an awesome God that You can hear the prayers of the poor, sick and needy as well as our prayers for our basketball team AT THE SAME TIME. We do not listen to the naysayers, for You instructed us to pray without ceaseing. We have the right & the privilege to come before You in prayer and we will do so with boldness. Thank You for hearing us.
-
We thank You for enabling our Lakers to return to the NBA Finals. You have chosen to allow us to take the narrow gate to the mountaintop and to face our chief adversaries from Boston in the quest to maintain our crown. Some of us are fearful about the challenge. Some of us are faithful that we can overcome the challenge. No matter what the outcome, we ask You to be with Kobe, Phil, LO, Pau, D Fish, Andrew, Shannon, Mbenga, Jordan, Sasha, Josh, Ammo, the coaching staff, and our newest Laker Ron Artest. Be with them every step of the way. Lead them. Guide them. May the Light inside of them overcome Boston's darkness. May they ignore the taunts, the physicality & the evil intimidation. May they rise above all that crap and play 48 minutes of skilled, intense, focused and disciplined basketball. May they forever operate as a team.
-
Grant wisdom to expose & overcome every defensive scheme sent to our offense. Grant knowledge to the coaching staff that they would know which defensive mode to apply to Boston's offense. May our offensive fire on all cylinders. May our defensive show the unity within our team. May our bench uphold our starters and peform the task that is before them.
-
We have asked You to heal Andrew's knees for the past 3 seasons. We ask You again to heal his knee. Grant him relief from the pain and swelling that he would prove - to himself and the haters - that he has the mental toughness to play on such a high level. Touch his knee and allow him to play as he's never played before.
-
And may Boston rise above their own cloud of darkness and honor the game of basketball. Let them play us straight up. No cheap shots. No taunts. If they are truly men, let them PLAY like men. But if they resort to their normal tactics, let us rise above them and show them what honoring the game is truly about.
-
We know that Your will shall always be done. But we'll keep it real. We want VICTORY! Many of us want revenge for Game 6. But vengeance is Yours. We leave that part to You and simply ask You to give us the keys to victory. Let us be triumphant. Let the naysayers, haters & trolls be silenced by our play. Let our Lakers prove to the world - and to themselves - that they ARE CHAMPIONS! Allow them to pull every ounce of strength that is within them to reign victorious over these final games of the 2010 NBA season. LET US RETAIN OUR PLACE AT THE MOUNTAINTOP & REPEAT AS CHAMPIONS!
-
Your will shall be done. We thank You for answered prayer...AMEN!


The whole friggin World is looking after tonight's first game. Hello LA Hello Akron, Hello SoCo, Hello SFO Hello East Coast, Hello Italy, Hello Australia, Hello Spain, Hello EVERYBODY!!!

Whether is a 6pm at 9pm at midnight or at 3am the whole Laker Nation is UNITED to defeat the Grennies!!

Well, I guess Celtocs fans aren't that optimistic after all. They're already planning the rebuilding of thefranchise aftter they get spanked by teh Lakers.

Please please tell me that RED's LOVE CHILD Does not have anything to do with your job position!!! LOL!!

Congrats Jon K and Welcome Home !!!

Like Rick said, dont get carried away and forget the lucky bar stool..

re: Lamar in Boston.. I personally think its dumb for Khloe or any other Laker family member to actually wanna go and watch the game in person. If I were Lamar, I'd feel much better knowing my wife is comfy in a safe location watching on a 70in plasma without being harrassed by locals.. I mean, Boston is known for having Good Chowdah, not Good People...

AMEN!!!

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

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

So here we are now, on the eve of the Celtics’ second appearance in the NBA Finals in the last three seasons, and one cannot help but wonder if this is the last real roundup for Messrs. Garnett, Allen, and Paul Pierce. They’re not getting any younger, folks. And they’re not getting any better, either. None of that should detract from what the Celtics have accomplished this spring – and what they may very well accomplish still – but it does place additional urgency on these finals for a team that bases its success solely on championships.

AW, I THINK I'M GONNA CRY! ROFLMFAO!!! WAHAHHAHAHAHHAH!
You are a very mean woman EastCoastJessie. Lol!:-)

Mamba, with you and Justa being married, does that make you my internet brother in law? lmao

Just sayin....

Unless something truly unusual happens, I just don't see how this Boston team can beat the Lakers. Considering all the factors, the Lakers should win this series handily.

Forgive me, brethren and sistren for my absence but know I've been living the Laker love in Portland and I'm so damn happy we get to take revenge.... Go Lakers! Let's crush these (expletives)!

Jon K,

Wow, can't imagine how good it must feel to be going back, congrats.

Tonight's gonna be a good night, I can feel it. Lakers are ready to take on the challenge, they're psyched to beat up these Celts. Ron is ready, he promised Kobe that once he's a Laker, he will help him win a ring against them. Let's get er done men! I'm so excited, anxious, a bit nervous. GO LAKERS!

Congratulations Jon K! We wish you all the best on your new endeavor.

Gotta love RonRon. Thriller is the most interesting man in the NBA!

Please add me to your list of Laker fanatics.

Mamba:
You've outdone yourself again....OUTFREAKIN'STANDING!!

UTZWORLD:

If my memory serves me well then I recall you are a pastor, if so then you my son is one misguided in his purpose. As a pastor you should channel your energy and purpose towards the salvation of mankind and not into activities that have no relevance to human kind. Las Vegas and gamblers like Charles Barkley follow NBA.

IT IS WISE NOT TO MIX SPORTS AND RELIGION.........God has more important issues to deal with than NBA..

So wake up and pray for your salvation and not for your personal agenda.

In Hoopshype.com this am, they talked about how one of the celchicks, Tony Gaffney spent 4 weeks in Laker preseason, dang, preseason camp doesn't last 4 weeks....anyway they were talking about if he had any insight into the Laker's offense, he said he didn't take a playbook with him, and then there was a quote from UPS that there is no playbook, and that he would have to have a super memory to benefit the Boston CELL-TICKS....I remember we talked about this earlier over a month ago, and I recommended a book by Tex Winter which lays out the basics, and you know, that that's just the basic basics, and that it's modified depending on Laker players or how the defense is playing them...I remember watching one tv clip in preseason I believe where the coachs, wow, musta been last year, cuz Rambis was the one running the demo, were demo-ing the offense to a group of youngsters. That was a good clip, and I remember another time they were playing against a team and they adjusted by where they would initiate the offense, the first pass, after crossing midcourt....depending on where the pressure of the defense picks them up.
For Boston fans to jeer Laker family and fans, that goes to show their caveman mentality. Totally no class, like animals....below dogs and horses for sure.

Let's get this done LAKER NATION!

All the way from the Pacific the side of this globe, I, Brylle, shall be screaming until my lungs give out for the most glamorous and the greatest basketball team in the whole world, the LOS ANGELES LAKERS!

Amp the ante up Laker fans, for today, we shall witness a new chapter be written into our glorious history. Banner #16 is four wins away!

LET'S GET THIS FINALS SHOW ON THE ROAD!

GIVE THOSE LEPRECHAUNS A REALLY GOOD WHOOPIN! F*** THE CELTICS!BOSTON SUCKS!

LAKERS IN 5 BABY!

LET'S DO THIS!!!!!

Brylle

@HOUSTONLAKER - thank you sir, and tonight the Lakers will out do themselves with a blowout. I seriously believe this first game is going to be a blow out. All that repressed tension and hate released...DAMN!!! I'd hate to be a Celtic tonight HoustonLaker.
Mamba24

LAKER NATION BRYLLE IN THE HOUSSSSSSSSSSE!

Jon K,

Your first order of business in Los Angeles will be to find another lucky bar stool. Choose wisely.
