Post-game quotes from Lakers' 107-83 victory over Golden State Warriors

57233266-1

Where are the rolling pictures, you may ask? They're stored digitally in my camera, but numerous technical mishaps led to sound that's far from audible. So in the best compromise I can think of, below is a transcript of some of the Lakers'  quotes shared by the team's public relations staff. Keep in mind these transcripts don't consist of the entire interviews that took place, but hopefully it gives you enough of a gist.

Everything will be fixed for workable video for today's practice and the remaining 79 games!

Lakers guard Kobe Bryant

On if the team's bench play will make the back-to-back games Tuesday against Memphis and Wednesday at Sacramento easier: "Our bench is very solid, very solid. They rarely make mistakes. They stay within the structure and they play well together."

On the starters being able to rest: "That is going to definitely help a lot. When we get [Andrew Bynum] back, that should help out a lot. Even tonight, in a game like tonight, Pau [Gasol] is playing a great deal of minutes. I would like to see him rest a little more."

On what he feels best about the Lakers' play: "We're 3-0. The games go by this early in the season, and you just continue to play."

Lakers forward Pau Gasol

On what the team team can improve on: "We're going to be challenged every night and we understand that. I think we can improve defensively. There's still a lot of room for improvement. Obviously, there are a lot of games to go. But we're excited. I think we're pretty happy about how things are going right now."

On the how the Lakers presented matchup problems for Golden State: "We've been successful against them the last couple of years. If you want to continue to be successful, that's a team that you can't really relax on because they have a lot of players that are talented and up-tempo guys. If you fall asleep, they can put a lot of runs together."

Lakers forward Lamar Odom

On his rebounding effort: "I feel good. I'm in shape. I'm following and getting rebound, and I'm trying to make plays, especially on the offensive rebound. I'm just being active. I'm confident. I'm playing with a team that has a lot of chemistry so I kind of know what to expect."

On getting aggressive early: "I want to get myself involved in the game and get going pretty early so I can find that rhythm, and find that spot and always be comfortable at taking shots whenever I'm on the court. I'm just looking to attack first.

Lakers forward Ron Artest

On his defensive assignments once Kobe's knee gets healthy: "We just go with the flow. I'm sure it depends on the matchup and it depends on what team it is. If I have to guard the best player, I will unless it's not going to benefit us. Sometimes I want to guard the best player but it just doesn't help our lineup."

On his approach to guarding Warriors guard Monta Ellis: "Just team defense. It wasn't anything I did. It was more about what we're going to do as a team, and just sticking to the script, team-wise."

Yeah, they play it all the time on the oldies stations. Very nice! Never knew the name of the group. Thanks!


hobbit

wondering if ricky is puddle or puddle is ricky. a few days ago during the pre-season, puddle also declared that this is Pau's team. go figure.

the Gasolists are out in force.

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

Lakers forward Pau Gasol

On what the team team can improve on: "I think we can improve defensively"

so maybe Gassy should play some defense. even Lopez is pushing him around. the Lopez that was a scrub on the bench last year and he became a starter when Phoenix faced the lkaers is the WCF. they needed size. but because Gassy was soft, Lopez discovered the "beast" in himself and at least he can bring it against Pau. SAD.

Gassy=MIA defensively.

I'm loving the maturity this Lakers team is showing so early in the season. They understand that their goals right now are to iron out all the bugs and chemistry issues before worrying about being tested by the bigger teams in the Western Conference.

Can't wait for Tuesday's game. Me and my girl get to see that fancy scoreboard in person. Since I can only purchase tickets in the 300's at Staples, A $10 million HD screen is very appreciated for all the die-hards in nosebleeds.

1,2,3 Ring.

the most exciting part about Barnes and Blake is not how they play with the second unit: it's the fact that if they continue to play at this level they will embarass the 2 clunkers, ron and fish.

what will PJ do?

And here yes is a wonderful song about Density:
http://tinyurl.com/26offbs - You are My Density – Lionel Ritchie

2Phatt - nice call on the Artistics! (Gotta make sure I watch the spelling there, or it could go all wrong.)

Drew is giving a sigh of relief about not playing Tuesday.

I think Pau's still rounding into shape. Last night looked better than the night before, and better than the night before that. I just hope he plays "dirty" against his brother ("Hey, Mom loves me more!" "Remember your hamster Boo-boo? I never told you that my snake ate him.") and not get pushed around.

Morning all..

UNDEFEATED... ouchhh --still working hard to extract that terrible sugar

..oops, that made no sense at all.

this is the tune I intended..

I like Kobe giving some love to the bench when asked about this week's back to back games. I hope Zach plays for Memphis (he's been out with his back issues) because I want the Lakers to be pushed.

good point. Mark is spanking Pau and they also have Zach and Gay. first team that has some skilled big guys. and a dynamic back-court.

OCisMambaCounty - scoreboard is awesome! The more I think about it, the more I need it for my living room... or to BE my living room. I'm not sure it does 7.2 surround sound though (like the Gorillaz, I loves me some double bass: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRewkpWZTzA). That could be the deal-breaker for me....

Good morning CRUE!

Great game last night. Who doesn't love a good old fashioned waxing? LOL! We all recognize there are still some issues to iron out, but I think we can all agree that this team is something special! And think about how much better it's going to get with Drew back - WOO HOOO!! We are deep. We are mean. And more importantly - we are hungry. This league better step back and recognize. LOL!

Complex (my) Brotha - good to see you! So you finally decided to show up after Game 3 huh?? What took you so long?? Get it together man - we need everyone here. :)


Hobbit - you said "Salut madame. Ca va? Encore, je attends pour l'information. Tu sais? :)" My french is very rusty, but I think I can muddle through... Ca va bien. Oui - je sais - mais tu peux attend toujours. J'ai dit rien. Ok?

HAHAHAHHAHA!!! Good to see you!

And finally - my morning commute. The trolls better step off too LOL!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKFb_0JsLzY

RIP Maurice "Luke" Lucas, the most historically underrated power forward. He was the original enforcer. Bill Walton named one of his son's after him, who happens to play for the Lakers. For a wonderful insight into Maurice Lucas, read David Halberstam's "The Breaks of the Game."

Noah tyhanks

i just realized that i like the new Stern rule (not at all)

Gassy won't be able to avoid his defensive duties by sitting alone on the other side of the court and trying to convice the refree the he was hit.

exactly what he did after Lopez pushed him away. he turn to the ref and after a few seconds he realized that his poickets will be emptier.

he looked like Donald spitting playing cards.

great reference!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One thing I saw last night (I could just see into Phil's huddles), is the team is really making an effort to calculate their team defense. With Ron on Monta, they were outlining a few "plays" to funnel, and Ron was commenting on how he'd try to body up, then when he "flashed his hands," he'd either steal the ball, or turn him inwards, and that's how the others would know what direction Monta was going to take. Kinda cool.

63 Footer - I'm so happy that you had great seats and had such a good time at the game last night! Insights like that about what goes on in PJ's huddles? Well - I eat that stuff up - voraciously!! Keep it coming!


(Of course I'm kinda jealous too... :) )

justa

u did not say anything or you WON't say a thing??????????????

and on that note i have a suggestion to save your …

just give out 3 fictitious numbers u like. that will satisfy hobbit and also can be your PROFILE or the blog. 2 rabbits for all the loonies. ;-)

OH NOOOOOO - the dreaded double post. Sorry guys...

Folks i'm looking at the schedule and I see a possible at least 29 game win streak on the horizon and if we beat Miami it is just, yes it is just possible we can break the 33 game win streak at the beginning of the season. This ISH is unbelievable!!

@bronx – Excellent point on Aretha’s prowess on the keyboards.

@Mamba – No way. I’m just one of many music lovers.
@billy in slo -lol

@Justa – For some reason I don’t think the trolls mind Blu Cantrell telling them to step off.

@63 Footer – I noticed that Allman Brothers exquisite selection you posted was at the Fillmore East. Bill Graham loved them so much and constantly booked them that other musicians called them “Bill Graham’s house band”

ouchhhh - stop it man - you're killing me!


I was trying to say I WON"T say anything. I told you my French was rusty, but I still think Hobbit will understand.

LRob - better them than me. I'm not as nice.

LOL!!! OUT FREAKIN STANDING!!! MAMBA24

First thing you need to do with those powers is to make sure our boy Andrew has no more worries with his knees, we want him healthy and beastly!

voraciously - i guess the double-post for emphasis.

ouchhhhh - perfect way to look at it! (I have to say I'm happy to see you back as yourself. Hope all is well.)

Mamba24 - does that density thing rub off? LOL! Use them wisely and for the good - ok?

justanothermambafan - I'm with you: I'm fascinated by "inside" stuff. It was impressive how "professional" everyone was, really thinking about the defense. I'd never seen that before in the few times I've been privy (Riles NEVER put it that way about D, he was always: "Will you work!? Work harder!"). As "dumb" as we sometimes think the players act, a lot of thinking goes into their reactions.

Oh, and I was lucky - I have friends with tickets, and sometimes they don't go.

LRob - I once had Bill Graham yell at me and my friends, told us to get ourselves off the front of the stage or he'd kick us out. Great taste in music, heck of a mean guy.

------------------
2Phatt - yes Mo Lucas was a great player and quite a character.

Like KobeMVP888 mentioned "Breaks of the Game" is a great book to read to get some insight into not just the exploits of Lucas...but just the everyday haps of a bball organization. Terry Pluto's book Loose Balls also talks about Mo and his fellow ABA ballers.

I'll remember Luke for destroying the 1977 Lakers in the playoffs. Laker PF Kermit Alexander was injured and couldn't play and Lucas totally dominated Don Ford.

Unfortunately his one year with the Lakers in 86 didn't quite work out. He was well past his prime then.

My prayers go out to his family and friends. I'm sure Luke Walton will probably be asked about Mo and address it.

Regarding fanstasy Part Deux - someone needs to check out my team and let me know if there's anything I need to do today. Please??? Help me help you....

the most exciting part about Barnes and Blake is not how they play with the second unit: it's the fact that if they continue to play at this level they will embarass the 2 clunkers, ron and fish. - Ouchhhhh

~~What happened to activator, he was deactivated by Ouchhhh? I prefer your old handle.

Barnes & Blake are good additions but RonRon and Fish are much better. They are clutch players. Well, we should all be happy that our players are complimenting each other, sometimes the 2nd unit helps the starters and sometime it is the other way around. Here is what I have observed, Caracter + Ratliff with the 2nd unit are not that effective because there is no offense and these two are still adjusting with the triangle. However, if you mixed the 2nd w/ first like Shannon, Blake, Barnes, LO and Gasol it produces great results. Or go with Kobe, Artest, Ratliff, Caracter and Shannon/Sasha there is also a great outcome. Pure renegades produce a stalled offense, they're too shy to be gunners.

63 Footer - I need some friends like that.... Hell - I just need some friends LOL!!

Hey ouchhhhhh

Top of the morning! That's harsh though.. what an insult to artest comparing him to dfish.. Even I squirmed in my seat reading that.. At least ron ron brings the heat defensively everynight so I say he desrves a little reprieve and maybe even full indemnity
.

In ron ron we trust!

OK I don't want to be to hasty giving away these powers maybe I should listen to what Mama use to say: http://tinyurl.com/2va3ky2 Mama used to say take Your time - Junior

mamba24

a few days ago i did the same survey: miami #29. and yes, i did not expected it last year but knowing that the team will gel more 34 is not an absurd expectation. especially with the RENEGADES. also a light schedule, with Bynum out is heping.

on a different note, 2 or 3 years ago (i won't look up any stats), the Lakers were in the first place as an offensive team having an average of 108.3 points/game. in the last few weeks they ended on 3rd with the warriors and suns finishing top 2.

i remember being annoyed when they were not scoring 108 points in a game. looks like we are back on track after the atrocious (in reference to the quality of the team) offensive season in 2009/10.

yes, defense win championships, but for 82 games it is exciting to see the team scoring 110 points a game. especially because it is not a 7" offense. so 110 means efficiency, good shooting percentage, good rebounding and assists. what a championship team should do. NO MERCY

Barnes & Blake are good additions but RonRon and Fish are much better. They are clutch players. Well, we should all be happy that our players are complimenting each other, sometimes the 2nd unit helps the starters and sometime it is the other way around.

======

The bench isn't going to look sharp every game. This second unit is still learning the triangle and the Lakers' defensive schemes. Clearly, Blake and Barnes will be a big part of the second unit all season and as long as they are out there, we will see inconsistency until later in the season. Even Shannon Brown, because he's still a young player, will have a tendency to revert to old habits especially on the road. Once Andrew returns and the second unit is stabilized (LO, Blake, Barnes, Brown), I think we will see more consistency over time. That is, of course, if we remain HEALTHY.

1-2-3 ... RING! #17 coming up STRONG!!

to ouch,

Hey guy, to play defense is the rest of the team, kobe too. Pau is the FERRARI. He is only to ATTACK. Pau is the jewel in this team. The rest only role players.

THE NES PECKING ORDER:

Offense: PAU

Working and all BB duties: LAKERS

LRob,

Did Maurice Lucas also enter broadcasting as a color commentator? I'm not sure whether it was College or in NBA.

Without Pau in this current Lakers Team?????

NO LAKERS, NO CALIBER CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM, NOT NOTHING.

Without Lakers, Phil Jackson is pure garbage. The same to Kobe, Bynum, Odom (bufff), and the rest. PURE GARBAGE. Pau is all about.

Like KobeMVP888 mentioned "Breaks of the Game" is a great book to read to get some insight into not just the exploits of Lucas...but just the everyday haps of a bball organization. Terry Pluto's book Loose Balls also talks about Mo and his fellow ABA ballers.

Posted by: LRob | November 01, 2010 at 09:46 AM
=====

I'm about halfway through "Loose Balls." What a clever way to tell the story of the ABA! I don't think people realize what an impact the ABA had on the NBA as we know it today. The reliance on small point guards to open up offenses and increase the tempo of games originated in the ABA and the first great ABA point guard was none other than 5'9" Larry Brown! Do you know who started keeping stats liked blocked shots, steals and offensive rebounds? The ABA. The ABA's first commissioner, George Mikan, insisted on the three-point shot, which the NBA adopted before the 1979-80 season. Did you know that 10 out of the 24 players in the 1980 NBA All-Star Game came from the 4 teams who merged with the NBA? And, of course, the first Slam Dunk Contest took place at halftime of the 1976 ABA All-Star Game at McNichols Arena in Denver. Now, if they would just bring back the red, white and blue basketball! It's a great book told through interviews with those who lived through it. A must read.

SHOWTIME ERA:

Star: Magic
Sidekick: Kareem

CURRENT ERA:

Star: Pau
Sidekick: Kobe

To Epi:

Exactly. Pau is the "Offense Machine". The rest of the Lakers Team should work for Pau.

Pau Gasol will be in the same level than Kareem, Magic and Chamberlain. In a new downlow level, Kobe, Scott, Worthy and Shaq.

The level nº 1:

PAU, MAGIC AND KAREEM

Proffesor Gueco and yellow

the Activator is on Firefox. i started on Safari and i did not pay attention, so

ouch

i did not compare ron with barnes or fish.

but if ron continues to shoot badly??????????????????

if we remember last year, Bynum, Fish and Ron were like a bunch of dinos moving slowly on the court. when they were not making shots (most of the time) the team was behind and playing for behind in many games. the bench was non-existent and they had many games when they really labored for a win. and buzzer beaters. WHAT I ENJOY IMMENSELY.

so maybe moving Barnes in the starting lineup, if ron continues his shooting misery, will help the starters to KILL the other team in the first half. of course they can be interchangeable depending on match ups. but Barnes is also a good defender and scrappy player. and so is Blake. and with Fish with the bench, Shannon won't have the ball to dribble for 20 seconds off the clock.

L Rob- aka The Professor, man that was out the HOOK, forgot that one.

I love Ron, but someone on the coaching staff needs to point out that he is not a long range marksman. He is much better in the post and needs to use his bulk to do most of the work for him.

Pau and Kobe are looking great. We need Socks back quick so Pau can reduce his tick.

Four an zero here we come!

Ah cool, the Gasol (assuming Mark is healthy) battle will be on NBA TV this Tuesday. Living in Austin, it helps my Laker viewing when they get on Tuesdays so keep voting. Of course I will have to DVR it and watch it on Wednesday, but looking forward to it.

Interesting year with Miami potentially meshing better than I thought they would and Rondo becoming a true force as a great distributor and facilitator, passing by CP3. I do hate the Celtics...but I have to admit a secret, Doc Rivers seems pretty cool. He seems like he would be a good coach to play for. And I am even finding myself, goodness forbid, entertained by Kevin McHale.
