Caught in the Web: Lakers preparing for FC Barcelona

 

-- The Times' Mike Bresnahan reports on the response from Andrew Bynum to Phil Jackson's speculation about having Bynum be a "short-minute guy." Said Bynum: "I think everything will be all right. I just need to be healthy. I need to get back playing and hooping with the team and having some dominant games."

-- True Hoop's Henry Abbott breaks down the results from the NBA GM survey.

-- The New York Times' J.M. Bernstein uses Kobe Bryant as a metaphorical example on why a greedy mindset on Wall Street has devastating effects.

-- The Orange County Register's Janis Carr believes Bynum could play a part-time role.

-- BBC's Rob Dugdale quotes Pau Gasol on Britain good chances in this year's EuroBasket finals.

-- Lakers guard Derek Fisher shares his charitable efforts with USA Today.

-- ESPN Los Angeles' Brian Kamenetzky analyzes the preseason survey from the NBA general managers.

-- ESPN Los Angeles' Dave McMenamin highlights Phil Jackson's concern that the team is "behind the eight ball" regarding progress in training camp.

-- Lakers.com's Mike Trudell gives a comprehensive report from Wednesday's practice.

-- Silver Screen and Roll's wondahbap outlines what Derek Fisher has in store for the 2010-11 season.

-- Forum Blue and Gold's Darius Soriano gives some quick-hit thoughts on the NBA preseason.

-- Lakers of Fire's Garrett Wilson sizes up the Orlando Magic and whether it's a threat to the Lakers.

-- I talk all things Lakers to Celtics Late Night in the audio file below (FYI - During the taping of this interview, I was not aware yet that Bryant had made the comment to reporters in London that he's feeling 60% healthy. My mistake.)

Celtics Late Night

Tweet of the Day:"A Spanish reporter asked Kobe Bryant if he'd want to trade Pau Gasol for Wade & Bosh. Kobe: 'No way. I love Pau.'" -- LakersReporter (Lakers.com's Mike Trudell)

Reader Comment of the Day: "If Bynum "thinks" he is a slow healer, or if he "thinks" he is injury prone, he may create a self-fulfilling prophecy. Maybe a to visit to someone like Tony Robbins and learning about NLP would help! Wonder why Phil hasn't taught him this stuff" -- Art - FL Laker Fan

There are still a few haters out there, who perhaps can be saved. I'm glad for the sake of their souls that the Lakers keep winning championships, they need the lessons in humility that it provides. You must confess and repent your sins of celebrating the meaningless accomplishments of lesser teams before you can really be brought up to the light of Laker fandom. @ PHRED

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)

*______________________________________________________________________*
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

RE-POST

Good Morning Blog,

I translated about half of this article posted in the "Diario MARCA" site.
Kobe and Pau played a little two on two against Rubio and Navarro yesterday.
Sorry I don't translate the rest but I got to get some work done.
Below you'll find a link to the youtube vid of the two on two the the link to "Diario Marca"

Video of Kobe and Pau against Rubio y Navarro
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYZfH2aOEro

http://www.marca.com/2010/10/06/baloncesto/1286381312.html
From Marca:

Sunglasses and hoodie on --looking like Rockstar-- the Los Angles Lakers Kobe Bryant finally showed up at the “Raval” street court in Barcelona.
Hundreds of fans waiting for him. Most of them populating the stands around the court while some others strategically accommodated in the backstreets so they wouldn’t miss a single detail of the arrival of their idol.

Kobe made them all wait the same. It had been a while since Pau Gasol’s arrival and even more since Ricky Rubio and Juan Carlos Navarro had gotten there. The crowd, impatient had already lost all type of interest on those three, they were there waiting just for Bryant.

The five time champion arrived 30 minutes late, but was received by the loving crowd with MVP! MVP! Chants none the less.

I LOVE THE SMELL OF ROLL CALL IN MORNING...

LEWSTRS present and accounted for...checking in for Roll Call...

Mamba24...OUTFREAKIN STANDING!!!

~~~

@ LRob - Kobe - Pau is one of the best tandem duos...

Here are a few more:

i'm concerned about the team due to being soft at the 5. theo w/age and tendinitis and no bynum. pau will lose his natural spot and then we have to hope L.O. can be effective and consistent. what is a fan supposed to do? i really believe - i'm not one of those "blind" fans - that they will accomplish the goal this year so - i'm thinking this out as i type - i think i'm just disappointed because we won't have a dominant team throughout the season. this team can be so dominant when bynum is firing on all cylinders. he can rebound, provide some D and put up some shots in the post - thanks you Kareem. well, i'm looking forward to the season and witnessing the new & improved - on paper, that is - bench. Gonna go drink some coffee now.
GO LAKERS!!!

@NEWMEXICOLL,
BRETT FAVRE + RANDY MOSS = SUPERBOWL! How you like that equation?

Good morning,

Game day! Hopefully available live on ESPN2 and ESPN3.

Now, a new element in our Lakers' watching universe. 3D. ESPN will be televising two Lakers regular season games in 3D. How crazy is that!

Fri, Jan 21 10:30 p.m. Los Angeles at Denver
Fri, Feb 11 8 p.m. Los Angeles at New York

http://bit.ly/aqmaj5

I saw a post a few days ago lamenting how hard it was to watch games not available in HD. Imagine what's to come with the advent of 3D. I've already seen commentary on how the TV experience has become superior to going to the game and what pro sports needs to do about it. This'll surely kick the conversation up another level.

And speaking of conversation, I couldn't help but notice that there are now dueling live game chats, here and at Brand X. The five local Brand X web sites have all been slow to attract eyeballs and there is reportedly panic in Bristol. What started here has become a media battleground. We who participate at the LAT Lakers Blog have become trendsetters.

Can't wait for game time. See you then.

i think i'm just disappointed because we won't have a dominant team throughout the season. this team can be so dominant when bynum is firing on all cylinders. he can rebound, provide some D and put up some shots in the post - thanks you Kareem. well, i'm looking forward to the season and witnessing the new & improved - on paper, that is - bench.

Fear not FRMKT, just watch as the season progresses and you will see true greatness. I guarantee we will get off to a great start and maintain that greatess thru the season and playoffs. How can I say such things...because I'm a Freakin Lakerhloic and member of the Greatest Nation on earth, Lakers Nation. We are God's Favorites and God don't pick losers. Now arise sir and go out in the world and Represent!

The Lakers in 3D and why am I not surprised? I mean we are the 16 Time NBA champion, 4 Dyansty about to be double 3-peat Freakin LA Lakers aren't we? WELL AREN'T WE!!!!

@RICK FRIEDMAN, You know the drill sir...OUT FREAKIN STANDING SIR!!!

Good morning everyone! Nothing like a Mamba24 roll call to kick off an 11:30a gameday - even if it is just the preseason. I'm looking for Pau the Lakers to deliver a nice bounceback win and sustain the effort over the full 48 minutes. And, Lewsters, speaking of great duos...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3o4Fgh0KW_4

Wow - a confusing morning. I woke up, looked out the window, and mamba24's roll call was rising, then I went to the blog and found the sun at the top of the page. I guess it's just going to be one of those mornings.

(Perhaps that means we'll be discussing whether MJ is better than Drew and if Kobe will allow his girls to go to the Playboy Mansion.)

I don't need dominating during the regular season...just winning...as long as we get the chemistry and momentum going into the playoffs...I am fine with another chip and the 3Peat...regular season record is not an priority...just enough for HCA...as long as we are healthy in Spring...that's all that matters...

mamba24,

you can put me on that bandwagon ASAP!

Hi all - thanks for the get well wishes (and bandwagon) - you guys are really sweet. Today I have the after-effects of a migraine - some slight nausea and a really weird "fuzzy in the head" feeling. I can't seem to think straight at all - it's like I've lost a few IQ points or something.... Oh well - I've got tons to spare LOL!


I'm hoping to see a little less (ok - a LOT less) Bynum posts today though. Hopefully the Barca game will take the focus off Socks for awhile. Someone said we've beaten that dead horse to a fine pate. I think it's gone beyond that - it's just sludge now. Can't we agree that we want him to do well, and hold off until he at least gets back into the starting line-up before we start up again? Can't we all just get along? LOL!


What time (Pacific) is the game today anyways? I just realized I forgot to set the TiVo. Man this headache sucks. I may have to leave early.... :)


Mamba24 - ummmmm thanks (I guess) for the profile bandwagon. Of course you must know that I won't respond well to these pressure tactics. I just may never submit it. Even though it's done (and it's amazing) and all I need to do is press "send". We'll see. I need to make a decision.... HEY! Wait a second! Maybe I'll do a 12-hour mini-series of posts - JUSTA'S DECISION. Keep everyone waiting and wondering... hmmmmmm - yeah - maybe I'll do that.... LOL!!!


(See? Told you I was fuzzy in the head today. No comments about that please!)

Have a great day Laker peeps.

HEY! Wait a second! Maybe I'll do a 12-hour mini-series of posts - JUSTA'S DECISION. Keep everyone waiting and wondering... hmmmmmm - yeah - maybe I'll do that.... LOL!!!Posted by: justanothermambafan | October 07, 2010 at 09:16 AM

LOL!, PREACH BROTHER, PREACH!!!

MAMBA24 -

The studies are going well, thanks! I'm trying to set myself up with a strong chance to get into a program back in the states. I like London so far, but I don't seem to have London money. :-) Granted, if I get an internship here or a job for the year that I'll have to wait to apply, I'll stay. Hopefully though, I will get to come back to California next year.

How are you doing sir? I never got a chance to say thank you for posting your profile. I am working on mine (in a piecemeal fashion), and like Justa, am debating whether or not to actually post it.

Might I offer an unsolicited thought regarding the posts about Andrew? I think that there are a few things that all of us here can agree upon (lakers fans, that is):

1) We have a better team with a healthy Andrew
2) We have plenty of offensive weapons on this team, of which a healthy Andrew is one of them
3) We want him to get better, and we hope that we stays healthy so that he can start to make consistent progress on reaching his potential
4) Even if he is limited, if he focuses on defense and rebounding, we will continue to be a formidable team

With that in mind, I have said my 2 cents regarding Andrew. There are passionate fans here, and I would do nothing to try to extinguish that fire. However, we should all remember what we would like to see - another championship for our squad. Having everyone healthy and cohesive are two things that will greatly contribute to that goal.

YES BROTHERS AND SISTERS LET IT RING FORTH FROM THE MOUNTAIN TOPS FOR SISTER JUSTA...NO PROFILE NO PEACE!!!!!!!!!!

With that in mind, I have said my 2 cents regarding Andrew. There are passionate fans here, and I would do nothing to try to extinguish that fire. However, we should all remember what we would like to see - another championship for our squad. Having everyone healthy and cohesive are two things that will greatly contribute to that goal.

Cali my brother I think you have said it all. Now let me add my 2 cents...OUT FREAKIN STANDING SIR!!!!! Good hearing from you, good luck and all the best with the studies my brother!!

@Caliphilospher, sorry, thanks for the words about my profile and thanks for all your great contributions to The Laker Nation over the years. Now can I reserve a seat for you on the Justanothermambafan Bandwagon? This of course will not affect her decision in the least but what the hey, it's preseason, it gives us something to do! Lol! Thanks again Cali.

Just so everyone has the correct information...

The game is at 11:30 am PST, on ESPN2...

Lakers Dynasty - The Next Generation

#17 Coming Up!!!

Laker fan-

Dont worry ... its only preseason!

Can you dig it?

Seriously, no one in their right mind is waiting for my profile...

Then again, there is no one in their right mind here, is there....?

MM = No RCOTD or Tweet today? What gives? Did we all suck yesterday?

always trying to insult the publics' intelligence...

the financial article fails to note that TARP was lobbyed for, set up by, and run by the very banks that profitted from it. it was set up to consolidate all the banking in this country. first, the BIG banks that loan the money that they are allowed to generate from nothing to the government and the smaller banks withheld the easy credit that they had been giving to create an artificial economy based on borrowing, causing a crisis. then the loan the government huge sums of money at interest. then the government returns the money to these crooks, for free, so that they can assist the smaller banks that are struggling because of the lack of fluidity. then, instead of giving the money to stabilize the smaller banks, they just use the money that they generated for free, loaned for interest and then were given back, to BUY up the smaller institutions, thus concentrating the banking industry into a handful of related businesses. this had nothing to do with Kobe, it was just crime that was perpetrated on all the Americans, who are now liable for both the cost of the operation AND the interest generated. moneys that are so staggeringly big that they can NEVER be repaid. welcome to the beginning of fuedalism.

Aww Justa's just a 'lil shy. No worries, Blog Goddess. Just post a facebook link and we can skip the profile.

Trolls are showing up again. Woooohoooo! Must mean the season's upon us.

unreadable, sorry...


"first, the BIG banks that loan the money that they are allowed to generate from nothing to the government and the smaller banks withheld the easy credit that they had been giving to create an artificial economy based on borrowing, causing a crisis. then the loan the government huge sums of money at interest."


it should be more like:


first, the BIG banks(that loan the money that they are allowed to generate from nothing to the government and the smaller banks) withheld the easy credit that they had been giving(freely in the past) to create an artificial economy based on borrowing, causing a crisis. then they loan the government huge sums of money at interest.

HE'S BACK! Welcome home 131...although considering the last time we met, you should change your name to 79-83. Sorry...couldn't resist! Seriously, though, we missed you. We definitely need you around here to teach Old Hippy & Just A Hater how to smack!

Mamba-

How you doing? Im sure you enjoyed your summer. But I hear that Green Bald Headed Lunatic is looking better than ever. And you got something he wants.

Repeat the Three-peat!

htj - man you don't miss a thing! simply forgot, but I just updated the post!

LMAO! Hey 131, yeah The Lakers got something that a lot of people want but are not going to get! Good to hear from you. How was your summer? Good to hear the Green Bald Headed Lunatic is back to form. Wouldn't have it any other way. So how do you think the rest of your team is looking and more important how do you think they are looking when matched against Miami?

i think we will see a much better game today/tonite, because now there's something at stake. it's pau's old club and barca's is totally intending to beat the lakers. so now pride and ego get in the mix, and as much as i don't view either quality as a positive, at least i'll get a decent game to watch. i think that there has been an out break of cabin fever

MRS. LAKER TOM GET WELL SOON & SAY A LITTLE PRAYER - BANDWAGON
*_________________________________________________________________*
Mrs. LakerTom tore up her knee taking the granddaughters sledding. She tore her ACL, MCL,
& meniscus. She has now been rehabbing the knee for 6 months of unbelievable pain & misery.
After 6 months with 2 hours of supervised rehab every day but Sundays, Mrs. LakerTom can now
walk slowly with a limp but her doctor wants her to still minimize the walking. It will be a full 12
months before she will be able to go out on the basketball court and use her chicken flapping
arms defensive strategy to make you laugh so hard you can’t make a move. Believe me, it is
hard to shoot the ball when you are ROTFLYAO. As for pain, we still sleep with a pillow between
us to make sure I don’t punch or kick her while I’m having one of my dreams where I am attacked
by Bynum Bashers and lash out in self defense. JK. LOL. The pain though is incredible and
Mrs. LakerTom refuses to take the Percocets the doctor prescribed (so much the better for
LakerTom’s Justa-recommended Game Day Drinks.

Mamba-

My summer could have been better. I think we have a much deeper team than the Heat but Lebron and Wade is gonna be a tough matchup for everybody. I wish we would have signed someone to help guard those guys but you cant have everything I guess. I think our bigs will kill theres but those 2 other guys are tough match up against. Even our new 6-11 Center from Turkey looks good.

I think we will see you in June again!


I'm going to watch this game with much anticipation. I'm curious to see what Rubio can do against an NBA team. I'm sure D. Kahn will be watching closely as well.
I know we are set at the PG position for now, but given D. Fish and Blake's age, could the Lakers make a move for Rubio? Kahn would be a difficult GM to deal with, but faced with the possibility of losing Rubio altogether, he may have to deal his rights. The question is at what cost? I'm sure Pau and Kobe would lobby for Ricky, they seem to have good rapport with the youngster. What are your thoughts?

Mamba24: Nothing better than getting to the computer in the morning, seeing MM's 'Caught in the Web' and finding the first blog entry your morning roll call - especially when there's a morning game to watch!

If I may reprint your quote from earlier this morning:
"GOD AINT IT GRAND BEING A LAKER FAN?...YESSSSSSS!!!!"

What more can be said? Great work as usual Larry!

- - -

Laker J: "Not sure that criticism is always viewed as such. When the issue is a sensitive one, it becomes bashing almost immediately. But hey, who am I to define that fine line. I knew there was something I liked about you, you are a Raiders fan, and so am I. I know that I've had my share of "criticism" towards Drew, but I'll be the first to say that I'd rather play with him than against him. I believe that he has outperformed his pick on the draft, considering who else was taken before him, and after him.
I also believe that we can win with another "talented" center besides him just because the way the team is built, and as you have said, the talent around him.
Anyway, I enjoy your posts even if we have differing views at times. It must be the Raiders thing! "
-
Yeah, us Raider fans gotta stick together, less of us around every day that goes by. I'm a Raider fan to the end though, through thick and thin (although there has been a heck of a lot of thin lately... lol). I think the Raiders help keep us Laker/Raider fans balanced - one's good, one's bad. lol. Good to have fellow Raider fans on the blog!

KobeMVP888: "Of course you can chalk me up for a YES on that!"
-
Yes sir!

I've promised Edwin to stop the Bynum talk for a couple of days, but just want to print the final tally on the Bynum poll. I'll chalk up 2 votes to the no - we could try to guess who they are.

====================================================
Did the Lakers frontcourt dominate the C's when Bynum was on the court?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
YES: 6 (CCX, LakerTom, htj, mud, Edwin Gueco, KobeMVP888)
NO: 2
AT TIMES: 2 (LRob, Art - FL Laker Fan)

GO LAKERS!!!!!

MORNING GAME PEEPS - 11:30 on ESPN2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@Outsidergua - thanks for the great video and article on Kobe/Pau trip.

@Lew - Shelia E really...okay you smoked me on that one...lol, but in my defense I was going with artist from Spain except for Pau's personal Boom, Boom, Pau song.

The usual Praise for Mamba24 check will be in the mail sir thank you! Lol! Thanks Cyber appreciate it.

LET US PRAY


Dear Lord, You are a Healer. We praise You because You are a healer. You heal us both inside and out. You remove our physical pain AND our emotional pain and You give us Your strength to bear up under any pain inflicted and suffered upon us. And You make us stronger through the process. We thank You for who You are!


We call on You as Healer to reveal Yourself to Mrs. Laker Tom. May You heal her. May You deliver her. May You give strength to her knee. Stitch every torn muscle. Restore every torn cartilage. Minimize and remove the pain. Heal her. Make her stronger. Supernaturally remove the limp. Give LakerTom and the whole family the strength to support her as she recovers.


We thank You, as always, for answered prayer...AMEN!

Rick Friedman: Interesting post above, about 3D and BSPN. Have you actually seen a game in 3D? I was hoping that the technology would drop quick, since it isn't the quantum leap forward that HD flat screens were to the old Tube sets. 3D would just be a pretty minor advance from the new LCD/LED flat screens, but doesn't seem that way.

Bristol, Connecticut shouldn't be worried about the rabid legion of Laker fans that follow our beloved team (and who says L.A. isn't a passionate sports town?), we'd be using string tied between paper cups held to our ears if need be. They have a multitude of channels and leagues they have the rights to, they even signed up the K-Bros from this very own blog to start up their own. Maybe the feel they are falling behind in the 'tech-race' ?

Interesting stuff, I hope that 3D starts to drop in price and catch on, watching the Lakers in HD is some great stuff, but watching the Lakers in 3D - THAT would be hog-heaven!!!!

instead of the Bynum debate can't we argue about more pleasant matters; like Rick Fox's performance on Dancing with the stars? I once ws convinced we should have traded Drew for Noah, but he's not exactly without his injury problems either. Drew might not be all we want him to be but he's certainly all that we need him to be.

How can anybody not like what BYNUM has done. From dominating when he is healthy, to coming back from injury stronger than before, to getting better every year and the YOUNG MAN IS JUST ONLY 22 YEARS OLD.


Lakerfans who go against BYNUM-fans in a debate about little issues, I just can't understand why they do it.


Bynum has never said trade me, or said anything to any teammmate that disrupt a team harmony. With all the talents in LA, Bynum knows he is a young big with dominant force inside, rare TALENT in the NBA, he can easily bolt out in LA and join a team where he will be featured as the franchise player. But NO, NO, NO, he wants to be Laker and help this team of Pau-Kobe-LamLam-Ron-Fish win more rings. That should be good enough for everyone.

Hello Fatty, glad you made it from the 4 tornadoes. Well, they have a mind of their own and knows which home to evade i.e. Fatty, the human twister.

Hello 131, don't u think it's about time to change your name to 4pts/4Q/hurts. On Green Bald, were u referring to the blogger or to that lazy rapper with Big Arthritic Toe.

Bynum debates...it's type of vitamins for lakerholics, can't do without it.

ArtFl, congrats for the RCOTD, did Nostradamus predict this Bynum phenomenon. You suggested prophesy and I thought of faith healing, we're opening again a can of worms. Indeed, bloggers should pay membership fees for putting their weird thoughts online.

Are we going to win today?

Euro Champs vs NBA Champs: mid-season, Lakers romp. Today? Might be close. Kobe looks ready, but he'll only see a couple of mins. Pau should have some monster numbers though.

Lakers will treat it like a regular preseason game, so I say Barca wins - but should be fun.


K, off to see the game.

Funny you were the one who called Kobe a ball hog. And now you are acting if you were his fan since he was a pup.

It's funny about spin zones considering that if I am you would be a twister lol!

See MVP888 this is why you need to UNDERSTAND Phil instead of just basing it on game observations.

You honestly think Phil "tweaks" it as much? The REGULAR season is where the fight for home court is. He always makes his team fight for the home court? Why? Because it gives off the chance to give the opposition to send them into doubt with 2-0 leads.

Why on earth was Phil SO PISSED OFF when Shaq did his "I got hurt on company time I'll heal on company time"? Why should we care Shaq helped put up a three-peat he deserved his rest and he could do damage in the playoffs (which he did)? Because it lost the home court with getting the 5th seed and he puts that as a huge reason for failing to go for a four peat despite Kobe having an unbelievable 02-03 regular season and Shaq destroying Minnesota and actually putting up great production against San Antonio. Next season he forced O'Neal to come into shape and look what happens despite Payton not knowing the triangle as well and Malone as well the Lakers get off to a great start before injuries to Malone/Bryant/O'Neal hampered the season. Heck he even got mad and upset over the TEAM PICTURE because that squad couldn't even stand in the right of places.

In other words he treats it HUGELY. He's not Gregg Popovich or Doc Rivers. He doesn't believe in "turning the switch in time for the playoffs" and would rather get it established in the regular season with consistent play. When there is nothing to be lost of course Phil will rest his players and risk losing the game don't get me wrong even he's not that shallow enough to put his players in (though at the end of 08-09 his players wanted to stay in to keep in game shape). That being said Phil never treat it as the time to build "team work/chemistry" etc. If that was the case he would have been leaving Bynum and Gasol consistently the last two seasons in the clutch to develop their chemistry. He would have given more opportunities for Josh Powell and/or DJ Mbenga to help gain minutes to improve the depth. He didn't. What he did was play Kobe a 2 minute increase .

The closest you got right is that he gives the minutes to players an opportunity to show what they could do. That's the reason Trevor flourished in his brief stay and why Jordan fumbled his chance to overtake a struggling Derek Fisher in the starting lineup. A big reason he gave the boot to Vlad Rad even though Vlad had given the Lakers a nice perimeter shooter. Heck he labeled good ole Vlade as a "space cadet".

If you want to call it "practice season".....lets say Phil does not agree with your assessment as the time to establish chemistry/teamwork. His job is to get the team to consistently play the best in the regular season to make the job easier when the post season comes. So the home crowd can energize the Lakers and help put a 2-0 hole for the opposition. That makes both the opponent a bit nervous when they return to their home court and the Lakers come in with momentum to the point where if they can win a Game 3 they basically can seal the series and rip the life out of the opponent; heck he gets mad even if they are up 2-1 since it made it into a series and make it even more tougher even though they still have home court. No more of a great case can be seen of Phil's philosophy than in the Utah series where that Jazz team upset the Nuggets but then got swept after losing a close game 3.

With due respect MVP888, I'd trust Phil from his readings instead of what comes out of a fellow season ticket holder.

Next season he forced O'Neal to come into shape and look what happens despite Payton not knowing the triangle as well and Malone as well the Lakers get off to a great start before injuries to Malone/Bryant/O'Neal hampered the season. Heck he even got mad and upset over the TEAM PICTURE because that squad couldn't even stand in the right of places.

In other words he treats it HUGELY. He's not Gregg Popovich or Doc Rivers. He doesn't believe in "turning the switch in time for the playoffs" and would rather get it established in the regular season with consistent play. When there is nothing to be lost of course Phil will rest his players and risk losing the game don't get me wrong even he's not that shallow enough to put his players in (though at the end of 08-09 his players wanted to stay in to keep in game shape). That being said Phil never treat it as the time to build "team work/chemistry" etc. If that was the case he would have been leaving Bynum and Gasol consistently the last two seasons in the clutch to develop their chemistry. He would have given more opportunities for Josh Powell and/or DJ Mbenga to help gain minutes to improve the depth. He didn't. What he did was play Kobe a 2 minute increase .

The closest you got right is that he gives the minutes to players an opportunity to show what they could do. That's the reason Trevor flourished in his brief stay and why Jordan fumbled his chance to overtake a struggling Derek Fisher in the starting lineup. A big reason he gave the boot to Vlad Rad even though Vlad had given the Lakers a nice perimeter shooter. Heck he labeled good ole Vlade as a "space cadet".

If you want to call it "practice season".....lets say Phil does not agree with your assessment as the time to establish chemistry/teamwork. His job is to get the team to consistently play the best in the regular season to make the job easier when the post season comes. So the home crowd can energize the Lakers and help put a 2-0 hole for the opposition. That makes both the opponent a bit nervous when they return to their home court and the Lakers come in with momentum to the point where if they can win a Game 3 they basically can seal the series and rip the life out of the opponent; heck he gets mad even if they are up 2-1 since it made it into a series and make it even more tougher even though they still have home court. No more of a great case can be seen of Phil's philosophy than in the Utah series where that Jazz team upset the Nuggets but then got swept after losing a close game 3.

With due respect MVP888, I'd trust Phil from his readings instead of what comes out of a fellow season ticket holder.

OUT FREAKIN STANDING. YOU SIR ARE RIGHT AGAIN!!

Funny you were the one who called Kobe a ball hog. And now you are acting if you were his fan since he was a pup.

It's funny about spin zones considering that if I am you would be a twister lol!

STOP STOP IN THE NAME OF HUMANITY!! OUT FREAKING STANDING!

How can anybody not like what BYNUM has done. From dominating when he is healthy, to coming back from injury stronger than before, to getting better every year and the YOUNG MAN IS JUST ONLY 22 YEARS OLD.


OUT FREAKING POIGNANT! HOW CAN ANYONE DEBATE BYNUM'S CONTRIBUTION 'WHEN" & "IF" HE IS PLAYING!! HE IS THE BEST CENTER, HE IS THE BEAST OF MYTHOLOGICAL PROPORTIONS AND ONLY 22, WOW NOTHING BUT AN UPSIDE. ONCE AGAIN OUT FREAKING STANDING..OH SWEET JESUS, I CAN FEEL YOU!!

Bynum has never said trade me, or said anything to any teammmate that disrupt a team harmony. With all the talents in LA, Bynum knows he is a young big with dominant force inside, rare TALENT in the NBA, he can easily bolt out in LA and join a team where he will be featured as the franchise player. But NO, NO, NO, he wants to be Laker and help this team of Pau-Kobe-LamLam-Ron-Fish win more rings. That should be good enough for everyone."


PREACH BROTHER PREACH!! I AM DRINKING BYNUM KOOLAID!! OUT FREAKING STANDING OBSERVATIONS!! SWEEEEEEEEEEEET JESUS, PRAISE THE LORD!!
