Tweetable items from Phil Jackson and Doc Rivers pregame news conferences

Tweetable items from Phil Jackson's pre-game news conference:

--Jackson on the team's mood entering Game 7.

--Jackson expects Lakers center Andrew Bynum can play 10 minutes each half.

--Jackson expects Boston to play with a small lineup.

--Jackson didn't give a definitive answer on whether this would be his last game as Lakers head coach. As far as whether the game tonight has any bearing on his decision? "I won't know that until the night is finished. Then I'll know how I feel about it."

Jackson expressed uncertainty what kind of performance he'll see from his team.

Tweetable items from Doc Rivers' pre-game news conference.

--Rivers plans to start forward Rasheed Wallace because of Kendrick Perkins' injury. "I think it's a good combination with Kevin [Garnett] because of the size, with Bynum's size ... It also may give [Rajon] Rondo a chance to get loose early because of the spacing on the floor."

--Rivers places high importance on how physical his team plays and whether it can outrebound the Lakers.

--Rivers noticed the team wants to win the title in Perkins' honor.

--Rivers places high important on a good start, but he finds it difficult to correctly read beforehand if the team is in for a good game.

Welcome: Sarah Smith, RRG101, KidMoney,

*JOURNEYS END
Just one game, Just one chance, Laker Nation welcome to the Last dance
Been a hell of a ride you know it’s true, Thru it all the Lakers came thru
Stomachs are churning, throats are dry, Can’t concentrate & we all know Why
Some are putting brave fronts on, But when you turn around that front is gone
Some of us doubted, some of us were sure, we all stood together & Endured
Endured the critics & Magic too, Magic what the hell is wrong with you
To pick another team just aint fair, Your’e a Laker Legend don’t you even care
Kareem. Big James & West stood tall, Asked who’d win, Lakers was their call
Really doesn’t matter what anyone say, It’s all up to the Freakin Lakers today
But I put my faith in just one thing, The words of a legend named Kobe Bean
When asked if the Lakers might be slipping, Kobe said I AINT TRIPPING
Just those 3 words removed all doubt, How the results of Game 7 would turn Out
You can believe in statistics, believe in Odds, I believe In Kobe The Basketball God
I also believe the words from one young Miss, again 3 words WE GOT THIS
WE GOT THIS, This I believe, What can be imagined can be achieved
THIS IS IT, Yeah that’s right, Freakin Lakers are going to win the title tonight
That’s it for me, Lakers thank you,You’re the LA Lakers winning Rings is what you do
Why do these teams like to taunt a sleeping GIANT, Especially one that has KOBE BRYANT

We Got This & We Want More! Nothing but another title will suffice.@ JUSTANOTHERMAMBAFAN

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)

The target on our backs may be getting bigger but the bullet holes we leave after games are
leaving massive exit wounds...@ THIRTY2

Wherever there is injustice...you will find us, Wherever there is 4th quarter suffering...we'll be there, Wherever the No-mo-Bynum banditos beckon to break up the brotherhood of Laker Nation...you will find... THE LAKER AMIGOS!!!@ CORNERJ

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. This postseason run of the Lakers is like Fine Art. Wait, just wait on it, & behold the beauty @LAKERMIKE
*
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

My stomch hurts. Lets start this darn thing.


Wes

repost:

3 Big Musts...

1. Take care of the ball...minimize turnovers...

2. Hit your free throws...Chowds will be extra physical and playing desperate ball...they will be in the penalty early...

3. CONTROL the boards...most important...no reason we shouldn't...

LET'S GO LAKESHOW!!!

This is not just about Kobe trusting. This is about Phil trusting as well. Nough said. (remember when we said that phrase a lot 3 years ago?)

I hope Magic brought that message to the Lakers locker room, that he knows a road team can win a finals-clinching game because he experienced it. The Lakers better be ready.


Wes

Bynum - "My knee feels good. We tested the strength at the shoot around. I easily held two Lakers Girls on my shoulders with no pain or swelling"

ROLL CALL SIGHTING!!!!!!!!!


SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok - NOW I'm ready.

LET"S GO LAKERS!!!!


Nothing but another title will suffice - Kobe Bryant

Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

I got a feeling that tonight is gonna be a good night!!!! Yes!!! Oh my.....I was calm but as the tip off approaches I am getting nervous. I want a beatdown early in the game for health reasons **(LOL)

Mamba24 does it again - We can't lose.

"Its all about winning"

I'm screaming obscenities at the starbucks commercial. I'm ready.

My friend just text me who is at Staples:

It is NUTS here! LOTS of Purple & Gold. The Hated Ones came out to a virus of boos! Bynum came out with everyone else tonight. The place is already rocking! Go Lakers!!!

Any Russell sighting yet?

JUST SHOOT THE PUNK ALREADY, LADY!

sigh.

Never has a live chat been so anticipated so much by so many.

ANYYYYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Final score prediction per Justa request......

If its any closer than that, Fatty will die of a heart attack. Please send money to my Cayman Islands off shore bank in lieu of flowers for my funeral
