Readers share their thoughts on the Lakers' 2010-2011 schedule

55476679

I shared my take on the Lakers schedule. Now here are yours:

I think for Lakers fans there will be less games of interest because some of the teams' stocking of talent. Cleveland and Phoenix will be less appealing with Shaq in Boston and LBJ in Miami and Amare in NY.

EAST: Orlando, Boston, Miami will be the ones I will mark as "Must See." Playing Chicago should also be fun.

WEST: I will be more apt to watch us play OKC than previous years since they showed so well against us in the playoffs. I think Dallas may be our greatest challenge out west. I want to see Blake Griffin as a Clipper. Portland always gives us fits, so i will want to see us smash them. Denver, Phoenix, San Antonio have lost their luster for me.

OVERALL: The big three in the east will be the funnest games to see. The west doesn't excite me. That's what happens when you are as good as the Lakers have become. Expectations are very high. It will be hard to exceed them." -- rdlee

"Oh thank goodness we won't have to hear all that NBA gave the Lakers a cushy schedule, like we had to all last year... First 25 games will tell us a lot... How the new players are acclimating to the team and our system... The rotations PJ will be using...His distribution of playing time... Will Artest still be making progress in finding his niche in the offense...or will he go backwards and regress... AB and how his aggressiveness level will be...Will he come out attacking, or a little overly cautious... Will our boys still be hungry...the main criticism last year was keeping focus...will the team keep playing down to the level of the competition...or will they need to be put behind the 8 Ball to get motivation... Finally...we will get a peek of Mitch Kupchak's off season moves...will it force him to make other moves before the trade deadline...Hopefully we get some sort of measurement...Artest move from last year was not fully answered till the final game of the season..." -- LEWSTRS

"There are 2 glaring differences between last years and this years schedule. 9 of the first 21 games are on the road, last year it seemed early on as if the schedule maker's were alergic to asigning the Lakers to play any road games, evident by how few they played.

The second difference in my opinion, oozes with the feel of Laker nepotism, which is a beautiful thing, for the LAKER-NATION. Last year the Lakers played Denver, in Denver, the second night of a back-to-back. Needless to say, without Pau, out due to hamstring issue's, the Lakers lost by double digits. On the contrary, this year we play 5 less back-to-back games. More importantly, in key match-ups like, Bos, Mia, and Okc, they have a day off beforehand, giving them the recooperative time they need to be at their very best. It's not to far off to assume the NBA understands the timeline of their best player, playing for their best team. It doesn't take a mind like Russell Crowe in the movie, "A Beautiful Mind", to see that." -- ToneBone24

"Overall I would say the schedule is relatively kind to us, and all we need is our players to stay healthy to have another GREAT season.

"One more thing: Last year every team brought their A+ game against the Lakers, since they were considered (and truly) were the best. This year, with Miami having all that hype (and the angst of other coaches with that so called "Super-3" they have built), teams are going to play their A++ game against Miami, which would work in our favor!!" -- Ruud Van Nistelrooy

"Most of our road games will be in December and Feb. Kinda a nice break after having Feb and March as having long road games. This also plays to an advantage to LA. Having a healthier team (because playing early rather than later when the toll of the season is more apperant) on the road and having the benefit of playing at home in the latter part of the season is good especially when the players are getting hit by the long NBA season and will enjoy more the confines of home. It's better off getting as much road games as early as possible to help with getting as good of an NBA record as we can get." -- KB Blitz

ROTFLMAO!!!!!

Considering LeCreep's recented tweeted threats, I'm wondering if I'm going to have to fight and consequently beat up LeBron James next season.


What do we play for? RINGS!!!!


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


GO LAKERS!!!!

Justanothermambafan, Congratulations dear BFF on your ROCTD. You've been on a mad and entertaining roll!

Mamba24 & LakerJ, Congrats on your recent RCOTD's. Hard to keep up with all the honors around here. M2's obviously trying to make up for all the threads missed by the LAT sports desk substitute teachers while he was away.

Mamba24, Fatty & LakerTom, Thanks for the feedback on the Transcript. I will re-post for those who slept in, as I appear to have stumbled on Justa's secret for causing M2 to put up another thread within minutes of my comment.

LongtimeLakerfan and humanomaly

Who is the fourth for the Celtics? SHAQ of course.
Who is the second for the Heat? LEBRON of course. And yes IMHO Wade is a virtual certainty. I would take him over Kobe straight up, and yes his age is a factor.

Who would argue with that? Get serious.

Mr Anomaly, yes, you are correct that 3 of the Celtic HOFrs are not Celtic lifers but SO WHAT?? Maybe we should take the World Series rings back from the Yankees because CC Sabathia, AJ Burnett and M Texeira spent their careers someplace else? That is the way it is these days, it doesn't matter if you are here for your entire career or just 2 years like Shaq with the Celtics. Gasol came from Memphis didn't he?
Also, you are wrong when you say that the Celtics lost to "the weakest championship team I have seen" because they are old and weak. This team was markedly different from the 2008 team. They were great defensively but lost a lot of offense from the bench. In 2008 they had: Powe, Posey and House, big contributors all. I am not convinced that they have enough firepower with this present team but we shall see.

[Re-post. Feel free to scroll.]

THE TRANSCRIPT BEHIND THE TWEET.
LBJ = LeBron James
DS = David Stern

DS: Hi LeBron. It’s David
LBJ: Hi Dad.
DS: I love it when you call me Dad. What’s wrong?
LBJ: I’m so sad. I thought it was all going to be so good, but all it’s turned out to be is bad.
DS: Why do you say that, son?
LBJ: People are saying such mean things about me.
DS: To hell with them.
LBJ: But I’m supposed to be the King!
DS: Never forget that, son.
LBJ: What can I do?
DS: Do what I do. Stomp on them. Crush them. Intimidate them.
LBJ: Can I do that?
DS: Of course, you’re the King.
LBJ: So how do I do this?
DS: First, remind them who you are. Use that KingJames account on Twitter I set up for you.
LBJ: But that will only make them hate me more.
DS: But you are the King. You have to shove it down their throats.
LBJ: What do I say?
DS: Here it is. “Don't think for one min that I haven't been taking mental notes of everyone taking shots at me this summer. And I mean everyone!”
LBJ: I like that. Thanks, Dad.
DS: That’ll show the little bastards.

Ariza reunited with his old group, The Traveling Wilburys:

http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=5455472

Ariza just got traded to the hornets for Courtney Lee....he shoulda stayed a laker.

Trevor getting traded to the hornets?.......now he's gonna miss out on the rubbing it in ceremony......see what happens when you leave the team that put you map.... you become expendable.....see where is the love now Trevor?....

Schedule conspiracy theorists.......

Did Van Gundy have inside knowledge of the Heats schedule to make such bold predictions? 72 wins? 33 in a row?

Its one of the easiest I've ever seen. Their longest road trip is five games. And although they have 19 back to backs, only three are against quality teams.

Plus, most of the quality match ups, they have 1-2 extra days to prepare for.

http://www.nba.com/heat/schedule/index.html

Kevin Tully,

>>>Who is the fourth for the Celtics? SHAQ of course.

Ah, that explains it. See, I thought you were comparing the 2010 Championship Lakers vs the 2009-10 Celtics and Heat.

But you were actually comparing the 2011 Championship Lakers vs the 2010-11 Celtics and Heat.

Now your argument makes more sense. Very bold of you to predict that the Lakers will be the weakest championship team you've ever seen next summer. I would have thought you would have supported the Celtics, but I agree with the part where you predict that the Lakers will win the championship next season.

cheers.

Tevor Ariza details via @KevinDing on Twitter:

ESPN: Trevor Ariza going to play with Chris Paul in New Orleans in four-team trade agreed to in principle.

Trevor Ariza = FAIL Part II

And, no I'm not a failure (recent haters). My wife is extremely hot, and everything else is inconsequential, i.e. mansions, yachts, cars, etc. BOOM!

DBDH!

>>>Ariza just got traded to the hornets for Courtney Lee....he shoulda stayed a laker.

The real bummer of the deal is that Indiana scored Darren Collison out of the deal. I was still holding out an inkling of hope that maybe the Lakers could have pried him off the Hornet's hands by taking on Posey's contract (or something like that).

I think that makes the Hornets worst. CP3 is injury prone and will go to NY w/ Melo....I'd put all my effort on keeping Collison. Ariza rocks, but who's gonna backup CP3? Me? LOL...
-
It's getting better and better for the Lakers.
PS: Indiana Who?

BTW, this trade should also put to bed any chance of New Orleans trading off Chris Paul. With Collison gone, he's the only starting quality PG on their team.

@ LTLF:

Agreed. I was secretly hoping for something similar. However, Buss & Co. always keep one open for good players, albeit unobtainable, for future opportunities. We may still get our wish.

DBDH!

This sounds like one of our way out blog scenario trades........

Four teams is normally a tough one to work out.

I like this 4 team trade for pretty much everyone involved, except maybe the Rockets. Here's how I see it.

Indiana FINALLY gets a young point guard to lead their future squads AND they dumped Troy Murphy's contract, which they've been looking to do for years. Unfortunately, they also get Posey's deal and I think they'll miss Murphy this year, but to get a young, talented PG, it's worth it. Grade: A-

New Jersey had mega cap space so they could afford to take on Murphy. They got a major talent upgrade at a position where they needed it, giving up only Courtney Lee, who is a nice player, but not a huge talent. Now Anthony Morrow can get the PT he probably deserves. Oh yeah, and Murphy's deal comes off the books next summer. Nice. Grade: A-

New Orleans gets a guy who is great in the open court and is sure to mesh well with CP3 while giving up a guy who wasn't going to get much PT behind Paul. It's possible they could have gotten more for Collison, but they didn't have the luxury of time. CP3 is impatient and wanted help, now. Plus they got rid of Posey's deal. Grade: B+

The only one I don't really get is the Rockets. I guess they were really desperate to get rid of Ariza's contract because they got a young 2 guard who is decent, but he will back up their young star SG, Kevin Martin. Battier moves back to the starting role, which means they really trust that Budinger will step up this year. Grade: C

GREAT MOVE BY THE PACERS…
Damn, there goes Darren Collison. Traded to the Pacers for Troy Murphy and Courtney Lee.
Collison will become a star like Rajon Rondo now that he will be the starter.

Now you have me confused. But you are polite so I have no problem with it. Yes, you are correct to have realized that relative to HOF players I am referring to the teams that exist TODAY, not last season. But you are stretching logic to then say I must have then pronounced the Lakers as champs in the 2010-2011 season. That is not what I meant. TODAY they are the champs. I fully expect that to change however in June of 2011.
Hope we are clear now and I wish you well sir.

Fatty,

"What ever happened to Jim Buss?"

I've been wondering the same thing. There was a time when I thought Mitch Kupchack was one of the worst GMs in basketball. His resume included trading Caron for Kwame, resigning Cook and Luke, signing Smush, Samaki, the two Vlades, and Shammond....and not to mention drafting Brian Cook over Barbosa despite Ron Harper begging Mitch to draft Barbosa.

Mitch has done a complete 180 since than, and his remarkable turnaround has coincided with Jim Buss' involvement in basketball decisions. Is this just a coincidence? We all know that Jim (not Mitch) drafted Bynum. I'm wondering what other decisions Jim has made. In other words, has Mitch really gotten that much better at evaluating talent in such a short span of time, or is Jim Buss the real GM of the team? Is Kupchack is Kupcake, or are Jim and Mitch working together as equal members of a team? Either way, I'm curious to know Jim Buss' level of involvement in personnel decisions.

Darren Collison will be like Nate McMillan was to us in the mid-late 80's: wishful thinking. Man, it seemed like there was always some rumor that Nate would come on board to back up Magic. Never happened though, and Magic retired. Stupid HIV.

DBDH!

@LAKER TRUTH… Excellent post, my friend. If I recall, I believe that Jim Buss was one of the key supporters on the Lakers for “trading” Ariza for Artest. If the media is right about the 4-team trade, then it’s bad news for Ariza supporters hoping to get him back in purple and gold as well as for myself and other Darren Collison boosters hoping the Lakers would somehow land him. DC was the point guard of the future that we let get away, a potential Rajon Rondo who shoots over 40% from beyond the arc and 90% from the free throw line.

Check out Anthony Tolliver's{Timberwolves} Decision to take his talents to the Timberwolves on youtube. Kinda funny. Tolliver should really be shaking in his Nike's cause LaBron is taking names and gonna kick butt.

Puddle,

I'm pretty much on the same page as you.

Indy getting Collison is huge for them. With Hibbert and Granger, Collison will make a nice start of a core (all-star wing player, good center, good pg). I dno't think the loss of Murphy will hurt them too much in the long run, and dumping his contract wasn't a big deal, since it's an expiring contract anyway.

New Jersey gets an excellent rebounder/decent scorer at the PF to go along with Brook Lopez, Devin Harris, Anthony Morrow, and Jordan Farmar, and that gives Derrick Favors a year to grow before he has to step up and really play at the NBA level.

I don't think it necessarily gets either Indy or Jersey into the playoffs, but good moves for both teams.

The Rockets is all about money - they've got Battier, Kevin Martin, and Chase Budinger who can play the wings and shoot 3's, so Trevor wasn't essential, and he'll save them 10 million in salary + luxury tax next season alone. Courtney Lee makes almost nothing and will be a fine backup to Kevin Martin (plus he has finals experience)

In my view, the big loser is New Orleans. Trevor is pretty good, but I think Collison had more upside and he cost a lot less.

LakerTom,

To this day, I'm still sure that both Artest and Ariza were free agents and signed with there new persepective teams on their own terms. I'm sure you were already aware of that and worded it in a different way.

On to this year's schedule, I like it. Enuff said!

This four team trade will spark other trades to take place in the NBA. Allow me to bid farewell to Sasha in advance. Nice having you kid!

LakerTom,

Sorry, forgot the spacing.

Nevermind, it corrected itself. Awsome!

Maybe, it didn't. Good day Laker Nation!

This trade means Ariza doesn't need to be suffered to watch Lakers' ring ceremony. Less drama on opening night!

It's interesting that the Pacers took Darren Collison AND James Posey. They were looking for the young guard so DC is a keeper, but they might want to trade James Posey away...The Lakers are willing to trade for him (with Sasah and Ebanks possibly)??

>>>stretching logic to then say I must have then pronounced the Lakers as
>>>champs in the 2010-2011 season.

Ahhh. I see. You were comparing different sets of teams.

Right now, I'd put odds of making the HOF at this:

Kobe 100%
KG 100%
Pierce 100%
Shaq 100%

Allen 80%

Gasol 50%

Rondo 40%

Bynum 35%

Artest 20%

and everybody else too low a % to bother.

But you know what I will say about aging HOF megateams...

Kobe (100%) + Shaq (100%) + Malone (100%) + Payton (100%) wasn't a guarantee of a title.

looks like Laker Tom's wet dream of trading LO/Walton for Collison is dead before it even began.

I wonder though if that means you still want to trade away Odom for Okafur Laker Tom.

Does anybody know if Shannon's thumb or Ron's hand is getting any surgery? Is it just a matter of resting the injuries?

On a side note, I think their should be a poll for over/under of when the Heat is going to implode with jealousy. Can you imagine LBJ taking the last second shot against the Celtics and missing? What would Wade think of that, would he say he should have passed him the ball? Or the other way around. I can't wait for the Heat drama, just like the good ole days of the early 2000's.

Trevor probably requested the trade. Couldn't handle the embarrassment of watching his former teammates get another ring knowing that his agent's bluff was called. HIS LOSS!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As for the schedule having more road games at the beginning of the season, that's actually good for two reasons:

1. Benefits Road Record Since Most Teams Aren't in Sync in First Few Months of Season--Advantage Lakers (Road Record Should Be Even Better)

2. Road Trips Help Gel The Team's Chemistry--Barnes, Blake & Ratliff Will Benefit

Can't Wait for Opening Night!!!!!!
____________________________________________________

GO LAKERS!!!!!! ONE, TWO, THREE-PEAT TO THE SECOND POWER!!!!!!

Trading Odom.......Foolish!

THE EXPENDABLES…
Looks like even Hollywood is in love with putting together super teams. How about an action movie lineup that includes Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Steve Austin, Randy Couture, and Mickey Rourke with appearances by Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The only question is are the Expendables more like the Heat or the Celtics. Of course, the Lakers will make both teams expendable.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
TOM

LTLF -

Its good to see you back and sharing again.

Do you know how long a team must keep a player recently traded to them? Like with Posey to Indy.

Not that I'm interested in Posey, but just curious.

Fatty,


If I'm not mistaken, it's 45 days after opening of season. On to the Expendables, more like the Celtics!!! On their last leg.

@RAGE777… “Can you imagine LBJ taking the last second shot against the Celtics and missing? What would Wade think of that, would he say he should have passed him the ball? Or the other way around.” LeBron and Wade are used to playing with the ball. What will be interesting is seeing if either can adjust their game physically and mentally to play without the ball. If they remain friends, maybe they’ll take turns. LOL.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
@RAZDIZZLEFOSHIZZLE… “To this day, I'm still sure that both Artest and Ariza were free agents and signed with there new persepective teams on their own terms. I'm sure you were already aware of that and worded it in a different way.” Yes, I was aware of it but anybody who thinks there was any question which player would be the Lakers small forward is mistaken. From the moment Artest was available, Ariza was gone.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
@KB BLITZ… “I wonder though if that means you still want to trade away Odom for Okafur Laker Tom.”
LOL, Blitz. Okafor was always just a throw in to get NO to trade Collison. I don’t know whether I would have pulled the trigger on a Collison/Okafor for Odom/Vujacic trade but I would have been tempted. In the end, the Lakers biggest weapon next to Kobe is the fact that they can cover all 48 minutes of every game at the 4 and 5 with Bynum, Gasol, and Odom. But there is no other point guard that I think we could have actually traded for who would have fit better than Collison. Great defender, playmaker, and 3-point shooter. He will become the West’s version of Rajon Rondo on defense and a 40% 3-point shooter and 90% free thrower. Bottom line, I trust Jerry and Jim Buss and Mitch Kupchak to make the right moves. Right now, that means holding the course with this team and hoping that Andrew can stay injury free and become a beast.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
TOM

My proposal would have been:


Lakers take the place of Indiana and send L. Odom and Sasha Vujacic to the Nets and receive. D. Collison and Posey from NO, and Terrence Williams from NJ.

Troy Murphy ----- $ 11,968.00


Odom and Sasha ---- $ 13,670.00


D. Collison, T. Williams and Posey = $ 10,730.00


Collison and Williams are two up and coming stars in the league. We do have to get younger and start building for the future while maintaining our starting core.


Of course we don't need Posey (especially after signing Barnes) and we would be trading an extremely valuable player in Odom as we try to threepeat, but Posey would be more tradeable than Sasha for a PF. The key would be Caracter and Bynum's health. I know we don't want to trust a rookie in our quest to another Championship. Would Sheed sign with the Lakers later in the season? Can we turn the tables on the Ceptics? Flame suit on!

LakerTom,


Too bad we couldn't afford them both. Would have been nice having Ariza coming off the bench for Artest. It's good we were patient and got Matt Barnes this offseason.

Fatty,


A team can trade away a newly acquired player via a trade. Only the free agent signings require a wait period. I believe is 3 mos. after signing and/or December 15 which ever is longer.


Now that the Pacers have Posey, maybe the Lakers should pursue Paul George from Indiana.

Thanks Fatty for the correction

"I love it when you call me Dad"...
`
LOL

That leads me to a question based off of what Fatty said.... Would we as Laker fans rather have Matt Barnes or......Trevor Ariza!

I mean, thanks Laker J. This is what happens when you multi-task.

No problem, I know what you meant. As far as Barnes vs Ariza. I say Barnes. Very hungry for a ring waaaaay cheaper than Ariza and will be ok coming off the bench.

>>>Do you know how long a team must keep a player recently traded to them?
>>>Like with Posey to Indy.

They can turn around and trade them the next day... by themselves. If they're traded in combination with other players, then it's 2 months.

Well with the 4 team trade and Ariza going to NO...

First thing comes to mind is Trevor will avoid the embarrassment of the ring ceremony on opening night versus Houston...

Second, Farmar will get more playing time now that Courtney Lee is leaving New Jersey...

All this is moot, for the teams effected are no threat to the Lakers, and the 3Peat...

I thought about this, this morning. The Miami vs Lakers match-up has some historical similarities. As everyone knows Jerry West and Elgin Baylor were at the time 2 of the top players in pro basketball playing on the same team. West was known as Mr. Clutch while Baylor did his Dr. J, impression flying through the air scoring at will, easily the leagues highest flyer. That sounds alot to me like the Miami tandem.

On the other hand, at the time, you have the Champion's (I hate to say this) the Celtics. A thoroughly constructed team with debt on there dept chart, from the bottom to the top of the roster. Thus, they were hard to beat.

The lakers are deep, experienced and proven. That's before the offseason started. With our new additions, the Lakers are now deeper than the Grand Canyon.

I said all of that to say this.

GREAT TEAMS BEAT GREAT PLAYERS, EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK.

So I say to all of our competition, BRING IT ON.

LAKERS4LIFE.....

Big MM, you're the, Man .......

I feel sorry 4 Trevor, His agent has a big mouth. He's back to being a journeyman, while the Lakers continue to win Championships. Shannon Brown is getting some good advice.

They can turn around and trade them the next day... by themselves. If they're traded in combination with other players, then it's 2 months.

Posted by: LongTimeLakerFan | August 11, 2010 at 02:31 PM


I will defer to Kupchak on this one. But as I understand it. If you have received players in a combo trade you can then turn around and trade a single player immediately. But if you try to trade said player or any of the acquired players, along with another player then you must wait 2 months.


After reading your post again, I think that's what you were trying to say lol.

First Let me Say,, KEVIN, is that you? Dave Richards here. Millikan. Glad to see you posting man.

Secondly,, The Lakers schedule is what it is. We can all dissect it, but the games have to be played "one at a time". Personally I cant wait. This season should be great all around the League.

LTLF and others -

Thanks for your reply on trading players.

This trade means Ariza doesn't need to be suffered to watch Lakers' ring ceremony. Less drama on opening night!

And I was rather looking forward to it...damn!
