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. It's a great life to be a Lakers Fan. Sorry others: you just can't compete. Still
wearing my Purple & Gold Pride.Not because I will think of what others are doing, which I don't
care for, but only because I am well aware and assured of what WE ARE CAPABLE OF.

Phil knows he's got a Ferrari this year. He's just got it purring along. Trying a few things in 2nd & 3rd
gear. Knows he's got several more gears, but sees no need to even try them now. Hasn't even floored
it yet when the NBA cops aren't looking, but knows he can lay a patch of smoke & rubber a block
long if he ever needs it. But yeah, Sonny Belfast, Phil knows (and YOU know) he may not even need
to floor it this year at all. But just for the heck of it, I think he will...on Christmas day. @CORNERJ

Kobe can win THROUGH his team mates. He can win WITH his team mates. He can win
DEFERRING to his team mates. He can win IN SPITE OF his team mates. He can win INSTEAD
of his team mates. He can even win BY HIMSELF (just ask Dallas & Toronto). Champions are
forged in the 4th QUARTER. Franchises are defined in the 4th QUARTER. Dynasties are cemented
in the 4th QUARTER. Sit back & watch PJ, Kobe & Fish orchestrate this symphony we call Lakers
basketball to another parade down Figueroa Blvd.@ FEARLESS

*REPOST*

Laker Tom - I wish you a Happy Birthday too!!! we need to get together with the NorCal peeps soon...

Happy Birthday also to LAKERJ & OCLEZY!!!

@Justa - smile lady...don't let anyone ruin your day!!!

Thank you all for the well wishes. Yeah Lew, I wish we could all get together have a beer and enjoy the Lakers game. Well, I'll still do 2 out of three. Here's wishing for a Laker victory as a present from the our team.


Congratulations LRob, great post!

@Mamba - Thank you sir. We gave you an extra day to shovel some snow and get thawed out. Now report to the deejay and hit us with something.

@Oclezy - Happy Bday. Have a great day.

LRob for the win! Congrats!

I've felt Ron Ron would be fine all along too, and quite honestly, that Championship press conference bought him a whole lotta leeway in my book.

Good read on BK's quarterly report card. I probably would drop the team's overall grade to a B- considering they've had such a soft schedule.


@Lew…bringing out the classics by Scorpions and Guns N Roses for your birthday…well done.


@Justa – nice variety to drop some Macy Gray in the mix.

Just watched the Ron-Ron vids- How can anyone in their right mind not love this guy!!!!!

*___________________________________________________________________*
GIVE RON A FREAKING BREAK - BANDWAGON
*__________________________________________________________________*
(01) JUSTANOTHERMAMBAFAN - OWNER - I may not be in the majority here but I don't care. If both Ron and PJ asked that this not be run, then why the hell is it here, MM? Why? Like we need to be reminded he's not hitting his career averages? Or that he was involved in that Palace fiasco? Or that he has a reduced role right now? We need to be reminded? Seriously? I'm pissed off. They guy has been nothing but great for this team. He's worked his azz off and kept his head in the game - above and beyond our expectations. He did what he needed to do to secure # 16 for the organization. I'm sick of the negativity surrounding him, when all he does is try to be a force for good, whether on the team or in the community. Give Ron a freaking break. How about a bandwagon for that? Or maybe a thread, huh?
(02) MAMBA24 - DRIVER - Yeah give Ron Ron a Freakin break
(03) FAN OF THE MAMBA – RIDING SHOTGUN -
(04) LROB - Ron's numbers may be down, but his attitude is up. I have no worries...his offense will come around. He continues to give consistent effort on the defensive end and that's why the Lakers brought him in. Now if only his teammates followed his lead in that area.
(05) MAGIA32 - or 3 live game chats ago I mentioned that I was starting to dislike Artest more and more with every game he played. But with this cool attitude he has and understanding that he's not playing well and might lose PT and still maintain a positive attitude, I can't help, but take that back. The mans OK in my book.
(06) BUMMI - Ron will lock in on defense when it's time and his offense will come around. If I'm not mistaken, Ron's numbers last year was his career low but when it counted, he was the man. So as long as he is fine, we should be. I wish people would just leave the man alone. I think people want him to lose his cool and go off on his team/coach/organization and demand to be traded and wear out his welcome. I don't think that is going to happen. He's too smart and older to fall for that trick. Nice try Miami, Spurs, and Mavs! (LOL)
(07) LEWSTRS - I am one who is also disappointed in Ron Ron's current play... I really thought he would have better results with the great preseason he had... But to put it in perspective...I was the same way last year, thinking we should of kept Ariza... And what does Ron do in the playoffs and game 7 of the Finals...Patience is a virtue would be the message here
(08) NOAH - My respect and admiration for Ron, who grew up and understood that fun and winning and extraordinary performance isn't a constant state.. "Rather than just be frustrated, I'd rather just stay ready."Mature, skilled, generous.. and measured in his responses to journalists who always have the choice in which "stories" they pursue. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXVnXVuj4Ps
(09) MCLYNE - @Ron Ron Keep playin hard on D and your shots will staart fallin. Don't let the haters get you down. Remember, you are a CHAMPION. you didn't warm the bench while your mates were winning you a ring, you were a big part of the team that accomplished this goal TOGETHER!
(10) HTJ - I've felt Ron Ron would be fine all along too, and quite honestly, that Championship press conference bought him a whole lotta leeway in my book.

(13 63 FOOTER -

"I Try" yes you do Justa. Is that the theme song for your FBB team.
Hey all, I must confess it's not MM or Sonnybelfast who are getting to Justa. It's the whipping she took from a lesser team in her FBB this past week. It's my fault and I apologize. She is now looking up at me in the standings. What can I say, I don't like crow or humble pie. I know I'm poking at an angry tiger, but it's all in good fun, I hope.

Laker J - you just couldn't let it go huh? Had to poke the sleeping giant. It's ok. I ain't mad at you. But I do get even. So carry on with your little bit of fun at my expense. It's all good. Justa watch your back.

OCLEZY - Happy Birthday to you too...Sagittarius rocks...

Mamba24 - Glad to see you back compadre...Excellent work on the Roll Call...good music selections too...carry on sir...

My Laker Family - Thanks all so much for the BDay wishes...It's so cool I can share my day with 3 other members...I'll throw this out there...

Sorry Justa, I'm in a celebratory mood today. In fact I thought you took it easy on me as an early birhtday present. So the win is much appreciated. I got my back!

LRob FTW!

I'm all in on the Ron Ron Bandwagon!

Let's all show a little Loyalty!

The dreaded double post!!! Argh.

Laker J - nope. Don't do birthdays. And I'm in it to win it. Like I said, keep one eye peeled - you never know what's coming at you.

@LEW
getting saucy early on in the day!

Please add me to the "Give Ron a Break" bandwagon - as Kurt Helin touched on in his Pro Basketball Talk article, I have complete faith that Ron will come through for this team, once again, when the stakes are raised in the postseason which, let's face it, is when we will really need him to come through - as has always been the case with Fish as well. The key is that Artest is OK with the minutes he's getting (which he is) and that other players like Barnes, Walton and Ebanks are benefitting from the extra regular season burn (which they are.)
Going to the game today - I'm so psyched!
Also, the time is drawing nearer and nearer to Andrew Bynum's return to the fold and I am SUPER excited about that - can't wait!

LRob - congrats on the RCOTD...

jefe - have a great time! What section are you sitting in? Will we be able to see you? What will you be wearing (you know what I mean)? Don't forget to find MM. And blog - gotta check in with us with a live report. (Ok - nevermind that last one.) But make sure we get a full recounting tomorrow!

mclyne - thanks bro...lol...my favorite karaoke song...

For the record...I would rather be on The Gag Me List, instead of the Anti Top Five List...and I would add that I don't think jefe101 belongs in the Anti Top Five List...

We all have our way of showing support for our team...If my opinions show homerism through purple and gold glasses...so BE IT...

Justa, I'll be in Premium Section 16, Row 10 - wearing some Lakers gear of some kind - not sure that I'll necessarily be in harm's way as far as regular television coverage is concerned!
I would love to figure out a way to catch up with MM, where does he live at Staples during the game?
Won't be blogging from the game, but will definitely post a few observances from the game on tomorrow's blog.

jefe - you should have an LAT Lakers Blog sign or something so we can spot you! I think MM's normally with all the game coverage guys behind a basket somewhere... I don't know...


MM!! Tell jefe where you'll be tonight so he can find you.

Good grief! By the time I got my post up on the Ron-Ron post, this on is new and has 41 posts up! Oh well, if anybody cares about anything I say it is on the prior Ron post. Too long and out of context to repost here, besides another post will probably be up!!(&^%(^%()&*%)&^_^*)%*&@###!@


LOL

MM!! Tell jefe where you'll be tonight so he can find you.

MM will be to0 busy getting that next Laker Girls interview.

Good Afternoon Mamba24 and Laker Fam!

Just checking in. I've been deep in end of the semester research paper hell!

But it's Game day baby!

@JAMF - You didn't scoop me at all. The Lakers emailed all the writers. I tweeted it at the same time too. I just didn't get the post right away

@JEFE101 - I'll have to check the seating chart, but I'll be sitting behind one of the two baskets opposite side of the players' entrance tunnels.

@MM - OK, I'll look for you. Where do you go at halftime, besides hanging out with the Lakers cheerleaders in search of your next Laker Girl profile?
