Tweet of the Day: "Wow what a night wit my teammates.... and did i really meet bill clinton last night? it doesnt seem real. lol practice at 10. rise nd grind" -- DevinEbanks3 (Lakers forward Devin Ebanks)

Reader Comment of the Day: "PJ is not an ordinary coach to say the least. This offense is the product of an intellectual and he demands that athletes (sometimes the antithesis of intellectual) to implement it. But this is also what gives the Lakers their biggest advantage. Assuming you have the pieces (!) it can give fits to the defense for this precise reason. Defenses, in general, always give you something - the smart and thinking player will understand where these vulnerabilities lie and exploit them. "Take what the defense gives you" sounds simple enough, especially when thinking one on one. When you expand this concept to the aggregate, it takes true teamwork. This is why Barnes hasn't thought this much before. Not to fear, once he learns, he'll have it.... but we all know, that can take a while. If he works HARD at it, he'll get it. If he worries about other stuff, he won't." -- Tim-4-Show

Quick Thoughts From THE BANNER HOLDER (partial REPOST)


Before y'all go throwing stones at that poor soul in Detroit hating on Kobe, remember my mantra: "They HATE Us Cause They AIN'T Us!"


Justa & Mamba: As stated on my Lakers Blog profile, I have a BA in Theatre from Grambling State University. The very first play I auditioned for up there, I got in. In that play, guess who played my sister?


Yep. Ms. "On & On" herself. She was as free spirited then as she is now. I doubt if she even remembers me, but I still claim her as my sister and I gleam with pride when I hear her songs on the radio.


LET US PRAY FOR G DUB:


Dear Lord, please be with G DUB and his family as they mourn the loss of his uncle. Give them the strength and freedom to grieve. Let them shed every tear. Let them moan, wail and cry in anguish. For You are a God who allows us to grieve. And after that season of grief, replace that pain with the cherished love & memories of the good times they shared together as family. Let those blessed memories be used by You to comfort G Dub and his family as they celebrate the time they shared with their loved one. Use this to draw G Dub and his family closer to You.


AMEN!

Kevin Sawyer thinks Kobe's over-rated?
-
Really?
-
Just one more reason Detroit sucks.
-
What do we play for? RINGS!!!
-
Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.
-
GO LAKERS!!!

MM - Finished watching the street ball video you posted. Good story. I didn't realize Fat Joe and Jigga had a beef.

Matt Barnes will grasp the more subtle nuances of the Triangle.

Unfortunately, the Lakers are missing the Triangle Master, Tex Winter (or as Kobe affectionately calls him "Yoda"). However, we have multiple Jedi Masters on the floor, Kobe and Derek.

The key is "Patience". "Read and React" requires patience and confidence in yourself and your teammates.

Being an intelligent player and student, Matt will gain more insight into the "Natural Flow" of the Triangle by observing from the bench.

While he's on the floor in games and during practices, Kobe, Derek and Phil will take him aside (if needed). The Great News is that Matt will be asking questions before they feel the need to take him aside.

Unlike other motion offenses, the Triangle is not so much about setting screens to free up a specific player. As the defense reacts to a specific setup, player movement around the post players is in reaction to that defensive action.

It's simple Triangle Physics (modified by me): "For Every Defensive Action, there is a Greater and More Lethal Offensive Reaction."

Sometimes you just have to step away from the microscope and observe the entire system from a Macro level to gain a better feel for your role.

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

If you think back on the 2001 playoff run (which Phil has stated was the best execution of the Triangle by ANY of his teams), the Lakers ran the Triangle to near perfection.

Now, if you remember, Derek Fisher spent most of the regular season on the bench (in a suit) recovering from stress fracture foot surgery. Derek is another intelligent player and student of the game. And, as typical, he was an integral part of that phenomenal championship run.

After their championship run, Derek stated that he learned more watching from the bench and talking to the coaching staff than he would have from the court.

In fact, if the NBA at that time had the playoff format they have today, the Lakers wouldn't have had almost two weeks off prior to starting the NBA Finals.

IMHO, the only reason they didn't go undefeated was due to that layoff.

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

The Major Difference between the Triangle and other systems is that, instead of moving as individuals, team movement is choreographed by the opponents' reaction.

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

To quote Alex Karras in Blazing Saddles, "Mongo just pawn in game of life."

In other words Matt, in the Triangle you don't run the system, the system runs you...

@Wes - not a big western guy but loved these as my top 3
1. Unforgiven 2. Butch Cassidy 3. Treasures of Sierra Madre

@GDUB - my condolenses on your uncle passing.

@DBDH - get better bro

@Lew - I think you double posted the Beatles on that first post...but a double shot of the Beatles is never a bad thing.

@Justa - Yep I wore out that whole Baduizm cd. I agree with you my favs were Other Side and Next Lifetime...but really whole cd was on. (Yes Mamba she gets the stamp of approval for Badu cred)

You said you were going to take me to see Wu-Tang,
So I braided my hair.
You changed your mind and said you weren't going,
But my mom saw you there.

That always cracked me up because Momma was hanging at the Wu-Tang show...lol.

@63 footer - liked your happy go lucky selection...especially Eliza. I had never heard of Best Coast so thanks for the intro.

Here's my favorite Happy song for this year. Anybody that works in Carly Simon is his lyrics is definitely "cool". Although the radio version they play now edited it out...Oh yeah, he's a local guy too!

LRob - another good call on your part. I liked his A Matter of Time. Haven't quite made it through 31 Minutes to Takeoff (so much music, so little time). Now I guess I'll have to. Thanks.

Since this guy is from Detroit, I guess that's why he didn't put Richard Hamilton or Tayshaun Prince on the list.

Gortat says the Magic have a better front line than the Lakers. Wow. When did that happen? Did they resurrect Wilt??

HAHAHAHA - yeah, we're scared of Gortat. Right.

Kevin Sawyer thinks Kobe's overrated huh? I'm guessing he's never watched a game in which Kobe's played. What a maroon.

justa - you didn't read closely enough. Gortat said the Magic front line "could be better" than the Lakers... provided that no one on the Lakers front line showed up to the game. Ever. And even then he wasn't completely sure.

Mamba,

You dropped the Poet in there huh! Love Bobby Womack. New Birth (another Detroit groud) ended up with a top 10 hit with their version.

Here's one of my favs from Bobby. Fellas play this one if your lady is giving you a hard time and she'll straighten out! check out Richard Pryor at :45 in the audience...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERu7Y365CIA

She's always complainin' ‘bout me never bein' at home
But when I'm there broke
She's tellin' me about the things that her girlfriend's got
What she ain't got, and she wants me to go out and get ‘em for her
But, but girl, I can't be in two places at one time


MM - I want video evidence when you've got the Harlem Shake perfected.

Mamba: Wish Christina the very happy birthday!

- - -

MM: I am going to watch that Rucker video later today, started watching it last night but going to finish it today.

- - -

Am I the only one that is glad that Barnes is being upfront with his admitting he's having trouble in grasping the offense? Lets face it, a lot of players have had trouble with it.

Like MM, I think it's good that he's asking 'whomever' he can to learn about it, and seems to be trying hard to catch on. I agree it's a good sign.

Interestingly, I remember Phil saying that The Worm was one of the players that picked it up the quickest... lol

- - -

Right now watching the Rockets/Nets preseason game from Beijing. Glad they have a chance to see Yao play. Funny thing, the Nets player chosen to address the crowd was Jordan Farmar.

Jordan seemed to be a terrific human being and I hope that he thrives in the basketball Siberia known as the Nets...

- - -

For those that wanted the Lakers to look at T'Mac, he's having knee problems and will miss the rest of preseason. Hope things work out for him too, but it looks like he really was damaged goods...


GO LAKERS!!!!!

Happy B-Day Christina!


FWIW, my B-Day is next Thursday!

63 footer - My brain doesn't process other people's idiocy. I guess I must have passed out once I started reading that it was a Gortat interview...

@Lass - smooth and peaceful - you got me ready to go on vacation!

@utzworld THE BANNER HOLDER - Kicking it with Erykah...cool. Hey I'm still waiting on your expert critique of "Soldier's Story"....

LRob: Never seen it. True story. I have an aversion to seeing classic films on DVD/Blu-ray/TV for the first time. I personally would rather seeing them on the big screen as they were originally intended. That's one of the main reasons why I rarely watch Turner Classic Movies.

Nice article on Shaq getting a pass because of his personality:
http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/writers/michael_rosenberg/10/11/shaq.celtics/index.html?xid=Fanhouse

I found the last three paragraphs to be particularly interesting:
"Really, I think that's it. I don't mean to simplify too much, but this is a purposefully simple man. He just wants to have fun. His feud with Kobe boiled down to simple philosophical differences: Kobe took everything too seriously, and Shaq did not take things seriously enough. Kobe showed up at training camp in late September determined to show everybody he was the best player of all time. Shaq showed up fat, out of shape and, one year, needing surgery he had put off so he could enjoy his summer.

The American sports fan ethos should have tilted public opinion toward Kobe. But most people sided with Shaq. He had the benefit of timing: Shaq was a full-blown superstar when the Lakers started winning championships, while Kobe was still rising. But also, Shaq seemed like more fun to hang around. Kobe is a born assassin. Shaq is an aspiring cartoon character, complete with the Superman "S" tattoo and nicknames like "The Big Shamrock." Early in his career, he said he had different smiles depending on how much he was getting paid to endorse a product.

So the world wonders why anybody would sign loafer Manny Ramirez, why the Vikings would want selfish, grumpy Randy Moss. Meanwhile Shaq -- who shares some of their least attractive qualities -- goes to the Celtics, and people want it to work. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all signed with the Heat this summer to make it easier to win a championship. Shaq once left a contending team in Orlando for a rebuilding one in L.A. because he wanted a lifestyle change. He wanted to live among the stars. This never meant too much to him, and if that cost him a championship or two (and a half-dozen MVP awards) ... well, that's the price you pay for being loved by earthlings."


I think that now people are starting to see through the smoke, and get to the heart of what was going on in the Kobe/Shaq feuds...


GO LAKERS!!!!!

justa - I was joking, though tuning out upon reading Gortat's being interviewed is probably a psychologically healthy response.

Maybe we could enter MM in the Dancing With the Bloggers show. I bet along with the Harlem Shake he does a mean Cha-Cha. (Or at least I'd laugh so hard it wouldn't matter.)

Happy B-Day Christina! FWIW, my B-Day is next Thursday!

Thank you sir and next week you, yes you utzworld THE BANNER HOLDER shall his very own Birthday Bandwagon!!!!! LOL! Thanks again Bro!

Congrats Tim-4-Show on the RCOTD!!


I have faith in Barnes at this point. Not only is he asking for help from his coaches and teammates, but he's watching film on his own time. This shows me not only that he wants to be successful at this, but also that he's humble enough to do what it takes to ensure that success.

He'll get it. And when he does - WATCH OUT!

Ok - so you guys want to go all macho today huh - talking about how to deal with your woman when she starts acting up? Ok - let me tell you the REAL story about why men are even on this planet.

EVE'S SIDE OF THE STORY

After three weeks in the Garden of Eden, God came to visit Eve. 'So, how is everything going ?' inquired God.

'It is all so beautiful, God,' she replied. 'The sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking, the smells, the sights, everything is wonderful, but I have just one problem..

It's these breasts you have given me. The middle one pushes the other two out and I am constantly knocking them with my arms, catching them on branches and snagging them on bushes. They're a real pain.'

And Eve went on to tell God that since many other parts of her body came in pairs, such as her limbs, eyes, ears, etc She felt that having only two breasts might leave her body more 'symmetrically balanced'.

'That's a fair point,' replied God, 'But it was my first shot at this, you know. I gave the animals six breasts, so I figured that you needed only half of those, but I see that you are right. I will fix it up right away.'

And God reached down, removed the middle breast and tossed it into the bushes

Three weeks passed and God once again visited Eve in the Garden of Eden.

' Well, Eve, how is my favorite creation ?'

'Just fantastic,' she replied, 'But for one oversight. You see, all the animals are paired off. The ewe has a ram and the cow has her bull. All the animals have a mate except me. I feel so alone.'

God thought for a moment and said, 'You know, Eve, you are right. How could I have overlooked this ? You do need a mate and I will immediately create a man from a part of you. Let's see....where did I put that useless boob ?'

Now doesn't THAT make more sense than the rib story ?

MM & Lebron in the River Dance part of the competition? It could happen!

63 - you know I'm messing with you, right?

I didn't mean you were slow physically - I meant you were too slow in calling dibs....

:)

justa - I thought you were saying I was slow as in "slow children" slow... which, of course, I am. I was also an amused child; my parents amused me relentlessly.

@justanothermambafan: "where did I put that useless boob ?" LMAO

Actually, I think you're confusing the creation of Adam story with the creation of Princess Jimmy.

Why am i being punished like this?

Another lost post because of my computer.

I was saying that we need to ignore stories about Kobe from this point forward. Because anything written is going to be either that Kobe's career is as good as MJ's, or that Kobe is in decline, and neither of these topices are really worth rehashing again. But unfortunately these are going to be the topics of the next 20,000 stories about Kobe.

Kobe overated? How do you overate a guy who's led his team to 5 championships?

And I have to say, if Andrew Bynum gets in a wreck in that car he has, his career will be over. His knees touch the top of the dashboard and he has maybe 2 inches of space to move back and forth. If that dashboard moves at all, his leg is shattered.

But anyways...

Wes

Hi Justa...

Wes

@THE TRIANGULATOR, thanks for the Birthday sentiments for my daughter and thanks for that masterful post on The Triangle, Good stuff!!

triangulator... hmmmm.... it better explains the creation of princess you say? You may be right. That really would make sense... If there ever was a useless boob, well all I can say is DING DING DING - WE HAVE A WINNER!!!LOL!!!

Hi wes... long time no chat....

Hope all is well my friend.

justa

Justa - I had video evidence of the dance, but here's the thing. I had a dance off with LeBron and won. But then Nike confiscated the tape...

MM - you had a dance off with the princess? But was it the River Dance or the Harlem Shake?

Things are good Justa, just really busy.

Wes

THANK YOU ONE AND ALL! AND IT'S A WRAP!!!

Mark, no sense in talking to someone about video evidence, when that someone refuses to submit a profile.

Good God, work is driving me bonkers!!!

No time for the blog the last couple of weeks. Looks like today I'm finally out in front of everything and not buried under 10 diffrent design projects.

Haven't even had time for the sports page and a cup a coffee in the morning. But I'm sure that like every year, the trolls will come, then they will go after the Lakers hang another banner up in Staples Center.

I'm sure Mamba24 is keeping a handle on things around here, and keeping everyone pumped for the new season. Justa probably still thinks I'm the creepy uncle everyone stays from (unless I have fee vodka then I’m the cool uncle), all while issuing the trolls verbal beat downs. Jon K still pumping out the anecdotes, serving this blog well while he was serving his tour of duty in the rust belt. Utz and his glorious and wonderful daily prayers, for the blog, the Lakers and anyone else who might need them. Welcome and Hello to everyone old and new.

I am The Infamous El Guapo…and I am a Laker-holic!!!! And I will be until the day I hang up my bandolies!!!!!

GOD DANG I MISSED THIS PLACE!!!!!!

A special greetings on your Birthday, Christina !

awww spell check fail..that was supposed to be Bandoliers.

Mamba24... I am doing fine and grateful for another day.
DBDH.. hope you feel better.

@mamba24 - Thanks for the bandwagon auto-adds, G-Unit, you're the best. Funny slice of theology, justa, as a life long agnostic all these stories about ancient dinosuars named 'Adam' and 'Eve' always crack me up, why would a dinosaur talk to a snake any way, right? But I suppose when you're a fellow back 1n 205 AD, drinking your homemade wine, rambling to the young scribe working on his college thesis called 'The Bible' who just so happens to live next door to your hut on the coast of the Mediterannean (this was before property tax so having a hut/villa on the coast was affordable for the comman man), your liable to get a few whoppers in there.

And God said, GAME DAY, BABY, YEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAH!! (God cracks open a cold can O suds) - Looks like we get to pound on the Queens tonight, BOO-YAH! Feeling good avout tonight, not sure why, but I think we take this one behind a super game from Caracter who didn't have the best overseas stat lines (mainly he got ownedby the guys playing centert for FC Barca), but showed his heart by fighting through some bad play. I'm talking big 4th quarter minutes, the most he's likely to see all year.

GO LAKERS!!!!!

Truly, though, I like your version better.
