Caught in the Web: Ron Artest, and others, talk about the talk about an Artest trade

59180815

-- The Times' Mike Bresnahan highlights Ron Artest's contention that he's happy with the Lakers.

-- AOL Fanhouse's Sam Amick has an extensive Q&A with Artest.

-- The Orange County Register's Janis Carr details Artest denying an ESPN.com report that says he wants the Lakers to trade him.

-- Ball Don't Lie's Kelly Dwyer believes the Artest situation is unpredictable.

-- ESPN Los Angeles Brian Kamenetzky analyzes Artest's comments.

-- NBA.com debates whether or not Kobe Bryant is a ballhog.

-- Lakers.com's Mike Trudell details Tuesday's practice.

-- Forum Blue and Gold's Darius Soriano believes Artest isn't going anywhere.

-- Silver Screen and Roll's DexterFishmore analyzes the Artest trade situation.

--Sports Illustrated's Lee Jenkins argues in the video below that the Lakers should trade Artest, but doubts anyone would want him.

Tweet of the Day: "would yal shut up. the trade talk was false." --- RONARTESTCOM (Lakers forward Ron Artest)

Reader Comment of the Day: "I think that everyone underestimates the difficulty of a 3-peat. It is hard enough to motivate yourself to do a repeat. A 3-peat is 3 times as hard as winning a championship. The key is positioning your team so they are not burnt out at the end of the season so they can peak at the right time. At the end of the season the spurs will be burnt out just like Dallas and Cleveland and everyone else that had great seasons and no rings. Phil has 3-peats because he knows how far to push his team. Pau started the season burning up the league, then he pulled back.

Its not that he can't play hard, he just can't keep it up that long. Give them a break, let them coast through the mid-season. The only fresh blood the Lakers need is Barnes for energy and Ratliff to crack some heads. Phil isn't worried, he has done this before. I know it would make everyone feel better for the Lakers to play all out the whole season. Phil knows that does not win championships. Take a deep breath and have a little faith." -- bruman

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
*_____________________________________________________________________*
In my mind's eye, both the Lakers and Celtics are rushing towards each other in the fashion that they have
in years past. Matching each other, blow-for-blow, against all-comers until the time to meet together arrives.
They are looking squarely in the others direction while they simultaneously brush aside any with the
misguided notion that they are also contenders. It is the same as how Bruce Lee will casually vanquish all of
the Big Boss' henchmen on his way to the real dance. It is all about Boston. It has always been about
Boston. Boston is the only franchise that has earned our RESPECT...and our DERISION. @ FEARLESS

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

bruman, props for your comments. this is NOT the time to panic but it does sell newspapers with trade talk and such. this is really a 12 step support group without the 12 steps! so lets stop with the petty battles between people of all kinds with one thing,ONE THING that bounds us to gether, W#E LOVE THE LAKERS AND LAKER BALL!!the last thing i want is for ron-ron or anyone else on the team to feel he is not wanted or needed WHILE HE IS STILL ON THE TEAM. that being said, i think that pj does not have to justify anything to any one, so anyone who thinks that he does not want to go out with a ring just doesn't see the same man i see.

PRESENT! And PSYCHED for the national tv coverage!

GO Lakers!

Cheers - PLG

@PsychedLakerGirl, If you're psyched then I'm psyched!!! Thanks for answering the Call...Carry On Ma'am!

@ Lance from da' bronx, Preach my brother, Preach!!!


@LROB… We’ll have to agree to disagree about Pau for now. I hope you are right and Pau will come through for us. As I said earlier, I wouldn’t trade him for any player out there other than Melo. It’s really just the opportunity to get younger, tougher, and more physical that motivates my opinion.

As for Brian Shaw’s comments, I did read them and generally agree with his observations. Both Pau and Drew are both “nice” guys. When it comes to style of play, however, there is no doubt in my mind that Pau is a finesse player while Drew is a power player. The differences are due to their different physical abilities, talents, and size. Undoubtedly, both are premier players in my mind and work together well as a team and fulfill complementary roles in the Lakers overall scheme.

Bottom line, I trust the Lakers brain trust to analyze the situation and opportunity and make the right decision. The big unanswered question in my mind is still why has Pau suddenly seemed to unmotivated and not rising to the challenge of playing tougher when attacked physically. We all seemed to think he had gotten past how to meet that challenge after the 2010 NBA Final.

Then, last Sunday, we saw Pau play weak and soft against a fully healthy Kevin Garnett. Combined with his soft play and lack of help effort on defense the first half of the season, that definitely raised a lot of concern in my mind. I always judge a player’s performance progress by their matchups and seeing Pau take a huge step back against the player and team we will meet in the Finals was a key factor in my concern. I liked how he responded against the Rockets but again that’s a matchup that has always favored him. I’m more concerned about the key matchups not in his favor, like KG.

Anyway, I haven’t lost faith in Pau and would only consider trading him for Melo. And despite what you still believe, my appreciation for Drew has absolutely nothing to do with my decision to support a Pau Gasol for Melo trade or for my recent criticism of Pau and questioning of his motivation.
…………………………..
@SCOTTIE PIMPIN… “Laker Tom, why have you given up on Pau so quickly and easily? What is your agenda?”

I haven’t given up on Pau, who I have loyally supported from the day he arrived here although I am concerned as I explained above to LRob. I would not trade Pau for any other available player out there but I think Denver’s problem gives us a unique opportunity to pull off a deal to get Carmelo Anthony and make the Lakers a younger, stronger, and more physical and athletic team and to extend the team’s and Kobe’s championship window by several years. That is my only agenda.
…………………………..
TOM


MM -

Can you establish a thread dedicated to Lakers Fisher problem.
Statistically, he performs worse than Artest among starters.
Visually, Fisher can't defend the PG position.

Media folks like yourself claim intangibles for Fisher while dumping on Artest.

Critics like me claim Fisher is the weak link and Lakers continue to play him major minutes without giving anyone else a chance to improve the Lakers PG position.

Kirk Hinrich isn't the answer -- please.
Another 29+ player like Blake.

Can we have a thread to discuss the Fisher topic in detail?

However, its a moot point if PJ refuses to acknowledge the Fisher problem.

PJ has the rings ...

I love your roll call, Mamba!

Looking forward to tonight! I can't say what the issue is with our guys, but this I know: They're STILL championship material. They're STILL the back to back WORLD CHAMPIONS and until they are knocked out of the playoffs they will be. Are there issues? Yes. Do they have to get it together? YES. But I remember last year when Kobe wasn't playing and we lost a ton of games. They were playing terrible. But then the Finals started, and they came alive. They moved past all of it to win! The core is the same. The coach is the same. They know how to get it done! DON'T FORGET WHO WE ARE, PEOPLE. BACK TO BACK WORLD CHAMPS WHO KNOW HOW TO GET IT DONE!!!!

Now pull up your purple and gold panties and get on the CHAMPIONSHIP OR BUST bandwagon!! DO IT.

GO LAKERS!!!!!

I am SO SICK of the media bashing Kobe!

This is the same media that used to worship at Michael Jordan's feet. He could do no wrong - even when he had bad games.

Kobe doesn't get any respect, which makes his accomplishments all the more remarkable in my eyes. His games aren't 'romanticized' as Jordan's were. The press have always been dismissive of Kobe as much as they've been accepting of Jordan.

Nice work 888 in bringing up that MJ game, game 6 'of the 98 Finals. What a stark contrast to last years game 7 of the Finals. Kobe was a virtual whirling-dervish on defense, covering his man and sprinting into rebound position on all shots. He has an incredible 14 rebounds. All that everyone mentions is Kobe's misses.

Well, it's not like that game 6 performance was MJ's only one:
How about MJ going 13-for-29 in game 1 & 9-for-26 in game 5 of that series? Or going 11-for-27 in game 4 of the '97 Finals? An 11-for-26 clunker in the '92 Finals? Going 6-for-19 with 3 rebounds, 2 assists in game 4 of the '96 Finals, and following that up with a 5-for-19 in game 6, the title clincher?

There has been a history of MJ poor performances, especially in the Finals. He usually is good, or very bad in Finals games. All those poor games however are overlooked by the media that always swooned to MJ.

Henry Abbott is the perfect example of that. For those that don't know what I'm saying:
http://bleacherreport.com/articles/257575-has-there-ever-been-an-athelete-more-torn-down-than-kobe-bryant

This jerk is up to his old tricks. I'm not going to list that article, but if you're interested there's a great reaction on Silver Screen & Roll:
http://www.silverscreenandroll.com/2011/1/28/1961684/how-to-be-statistically-biased-henry-abbott

KOBE KEEP DOING WHAT YOU DO - SCREW THE MEDIA JERKS THAT HAVE HIDDEN AGENDA'S TO TEAR YOU DOWN!!!!

OK, rant over, just was inspired by LAKER TRUTH'S quotes from earlier and that jerk Abbott's article from yesterday...


AS ALWAYS - AND FOREVER - GO LAKERS!!!!!!


If the Lakers had half the spirit Larry Mamba 24 has, we'd be undefeated!

Today is the day, this is the game. It all turns around. The trades, the rancor, the whining, it all fades in the echo of "I love LA" as the streamers fall on our blowout VICTORY!

that better, Lar?

Mr. Laker -

(ugh - kinda threw up in my mouth a bit by calling you that...)

GET A LIFE dude. Relax - jeeze. Quit your whining.

Go somewhere else if you don't like it here.

No one's stopping you.

And don't let the screen door hit you on the ass on your way out of town....

Preach Justanaothermambafan, Preach!!! The Swagger, The Swagger!!

@VMan, The check is in the mail sir! Lol! Thank you my brother, but I still have faith in our team!!

@LongTimeLakerLover, It seems that all of the Real Laker Girls have...THE SWAGGER!! Preach my Sister!!!

@CyberCosmiX, Hows everything my brother? You just Rant on...Love it!!!! You are now an honorary member of The mamba Clan! Lol!!

justa: "Mr. Laker -
(ugh - kinda threw up in my mouth a bit by calling you that...)"

-

ROFL! I know, how ironic, Mr. Laker? How about Mr. Whiner...

Seriously, if you want to post like a 7-yr old, there's other blogs to visit. Maybe when you actually gather two thoughts together and make a coherent point then you could try posting here.

By the way, you don't need to post things 17 times to be seen, once is quite enough...


AS ALWAYS - AND FOREVER - GO LAKERS!!!!!!

@ to extend the team’s and Kobe’s championship window by several years. That is my only agenda. Posted by: LakerTom | February 03, 2011 at 08:50 AM

And a fine Agenda it is sir! Keep doing what you're doing my brother! You're an inspiration!!

Good Morning Laker Nation,

Checking in for game day. Kobe said the Lakers owe SA….so I think we’ll see a more focused Lakers team tonight.

Song selection for today….to fit with Kobe’s theme….

James Brown – Payback. #1 R&B in 74…sampled by EnVogue (Hold On) & LL Cool J (Boomin System)

They took James girl and his money - so you know PAYBACK was coming.

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

DJ LRob and the Big Payback...NOW THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!!!! Carry On Sir!!

mamba: Thank you man, I'm honored to become a part of the mamba clan. Hope you are having a great extended honeymoon Larry (sounds like you are! lol...)

He's only the best player, fiercest competitor and biggest winner in the game today. He also is every bit as skilled as the dude the media likes to proclaim 'his airness' as well as have every bit of the competitive fire.

BTW, I'd take a trip up to Siberia if it meant being as creative in getting warm as you are in Chi-town! The only type of electricity I get with the sheets is the static electricity when folding them out of the wash, if ya know what I mean...


AS ALWAYS - AND FOREVER - GO LAKERS!!!!!!

@Mamba – Thanks for the roll call. I’m glad you survived the blizzard. We didn’t get hit quite as hard in the D.

@Jovbatz44- I like your guarantee!

@Cyber – Glad you got that rant out of your system. I'm sure you feel better now. His cup runneth over with hatorade…I like that :-)

@Laker Tom – All Good!

@Justa – kinda feisty today. I can tell you’re ready for game night…lol.

Been having a little debate with my two boys, I'm curious what everyone else thinks...

Most-wanted future Laker: Kevin Durant or Blake Griffin?

I literally go back and forth, would be happy with either one though... =P


AS ALWAYS - AND FOREVER - GO LAKERS!!!!!!

LRob - more than ready, fo shizzle.

But that said, the feisty comes from the idiot troll infestation. All I ask of MM is to post a 'shrimp on a treadmill' link once in awhile AND close the screen door when he puts up a new thread.

Is that too much to ask?? Is it?? IS IT????

yeesh...

Cyber - Durant. No question in my mind.

OOOOOOH WEEEEEE, They say them Real Laker Girls some bad mothers...shut your mouth, but I'm just talking about The Real Laker Girls, Then we can DIG IT!!!! Preach, Justa Preach!!

LMAO!!!!!!!!!

OMG Cyber,

Awesome post! I couldn't have said it better myself. There seems to be an agenda with most ESPN writers when it comes to Kobe. The more irrelevant some in the media try to make him, the more relevant he is, because his play speaks louder than words.

The amount of negativity towards Kobe use to bug the heck outta me, but once he won a ring without Shaq and then another back-to-back I decided his rings speak for themselves, he ain't nobody's sidekick, never was never will be! I also love the fact that folks can't claim his rings are because of the officiating, because it seems that refs have agenda these days too. If Kobe went to the line for all the actual fouls committed on his person, he'd be at the line at least 20 times a game. But again this solidifies his greatness. He don't need no stinking ref love, cause he's great enough to overcome the lack of calls.

More than that he's a winner and if he wasn't the best of his generation, Henry Abbott and some of the others wouldn't spend as much time as they do trying to refute his greatness!

But the real reason it doesn't bother me anymore, is because his peers and those who truly know basketball give Kobe his props so the opinion of those who just watch or those who just write stories are just opinions and not facts.

Long live the Saint (that ones for you Sonny)

KOBE! KOBE! KOBE! KOBE! KOBE! KOBE! KOBE! KOBE!

Cyber,

Great debate, I would be happy with either one, but Griffin could be more attainable since he is a Clipper, if you know what I mean.


Go Lakers. Show up tonight!

Do I have to say it? yes I do...OUT FREAKIN STANDING SIR!!!! KUDOS!!

@Cyber
AMEN brother!!!!!!!
I would take Blake. Once he gets a 15 foot jumper down, he will be unstoppable. He gets a slight nudge, for shooting most of his shots in the paint.

@bruman
Congrats on the Friedman! Thanks for settling us all down. We need more of that in here at this time in the season.

@MM
I am already sick of Mr. Laker's rants that don't contribute anything of value to this blog.

@mamba
Excellent way to start of the day!

@LRob
nice selection to get us rollin'

My first selection of the day goes out to all of the media members counting us out:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyl5DlrsU90

Relax, WE GOT THIS!

Mr. Laker,

Ya, I think you're gonna have to get over it. Or get yourself one of those reader comment awards and you're in.

===========================

Tweet of the Day: "would yal shut up. the trade talk was false." --- RONARTESTCOM (Lakers forward Ron Artest)

I like Artest, I actually got kinda sad when I read he wanted a trade.
1. Get your head out your a@@ and we'll shut up.
2. Tell your bro to stfu with the tweets, first.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ssm_MLoj74&feature=related

bruman with the Friedman!

I love the smell of Roll Call in the morning...

LEWSTRS present and accounted for...CHECKING IN BAYBEE!!!

Time to turn on the turbo charger...make our move...starting with the Spurs who thinks they will have the best record in the West...

No more trade talk, pointing fingers and uninspired play...Time to play LAKERBALL...

Lakers Dynasty - The Next Generation...

#17 Coming Up!!!

RCOTD = BRUMAN = OUT FREAKIN STANDING SIR!! KUDOS!!

@LongTimeLakerLover, It seems that all of the Real Laker Girls have...THE SWAGGER!! Preach my Sister!!!

Oh you know I got some swagger, baby! I may not be on the blog a much, but my PnG blood runs thick and true.

GO LAKERS!!!

@LEWSTRS, Thank you for checking in my brother! And yes, yes it is tiem to play LakerBall!!! Very good, carry on sir!

one game at a time, one game at a time.... we don't do great things by doing great things, we achieve great things by doing alot of small things . quanitative becomes qualitive. so first let matt come back healthy. then our 2nd and 3rd set of bigs.hopefully drew will be back tonite. i was thinking about the way the spurs are running their offense. running first and then half court if needed and timmy in position. i could see us perhaps looking at this. what do you think?

Mamba24 Roll Call ... checking in!!!

Lakers-Spurs. I'll be representing tonight at Staples Center!

The Spurs are coming off a loss, so they will be focused unless Pop does what I would do and play opossum to give the Lakers a false sense of security. But that won't happen. As I stated previously, tonight is an "important to compete" game. I just want to see a competitive, close game, none of this lose at home by double digits crap. Those who think it's a "must win" game, must have a very, very short memory. On February 5, 2010, another game people were calling a "must win" game. Thuggets 126, Lakers 113. Billups, 9 threes. It happens. Five days later we played one of our best games of the season without Kobe (bad ankle, remember?) and beat the Spurs 101-89 at home. Funny things happen during the practice season.

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

MAMBA24, you survived!!!!!!

With snow up to your neck, you're still able to give us our most precious ROLL CALL!!!!

You know what I gonna say...
AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!

That's for you: (the best rhythm section ever...)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=saGKG7VOCNo

Cyber,

I vote for Griffin, he's the next great player. Strength, power, smarts and consistency. He's already looking like a great all around player in his Rookie. Durant will be a scorer and some times have double digit rebounds but Blake will bring a double double to the table every game.

bruman

Congrats on the RCOTD! Many folks have been saying similar things, but you phrased it concisely and eloquently. Excellent post!

Oh you know I got some swagger, baby! I may not be on the blog a much, but my PnG blood runs thick and true. GO LAKERS!!! Posted by: longtimelakerlover | February 03, 2011 at 10:10 AM

SWEET JESUS!!! I'm glad you're on our side my Sister!!! Swagger on with your bad self!!!

Cyber: Durant, without question.

Mr. Laker: Um... aren't you too young to post here?

Justa: What time is MM picking you up for the ASG?

Mamba24: The Outlaw is present and accounted for. I'm pretty much teeming with excitement for tonight's game. I have a lot of respect for the Spurs, and I hope the Lakers rise to the occasion.

Go Lake Show!

Tonight is NOT a must win for the team, but it's as close to a must win for the fans as it can get. Posted by: LAKER TRUTH | February 03, 2011 at 10:12 AM

Very abtly said my brother in which case...I join with Jovbatz44 in guaranteeing a win...LETS RIDE NATION !!!!!!

i see my post three times i only sent it once, i think

LAKER TRUTH

Here you and I have been in agreement and you won't acknowledge me. This is where the rubber meets the road with "big picture" Lakers fans who have their disagreements and it's probably a good time to at least attempt to heal wounds and extend olive branches. I've enjoyed your recent posts, for what it's worth.

"Mr. Laker -

(ugh - kinda threw up in my mouth a bit by calling you that...)

GET A LIFE dude. Relax - jeeze. Quit your whining.

Go somewhere else if you don't like it here.

No one's stopping you.

And don't let the screen door hit you on the ass on your way out of town...."

Posted by: justanothermambafan | February 03, 2011 at 09:07 AM

Talk about someone with their panties in a knot...I mean, chill dude.


"justa: "Mr. Laker -
(ugh - kinda threw up in my mouth a bit by calling you that...)"

-

ROFL! I know, how ironic, Mr. Laker? How about Mr. Whiner...

Seriously, if you want to post like a 7-yr old, there's other blogs to visit. Maybe when you actually gather two thoughts together and make a coherent point then you could try posting here.

By the way, you don't need to post things 17 times to be seen, once is quite enough...


AS ALWAYS - AND FOREVER - GO LAKERS!!!!!!

Not crazy about his style (or yours either), but he does make his points (to which he is entitled), and he does pose a question or two which could easily be addressed. So how about it Mark?

But Cyber, what is it that you were going to say about the Saint,
for the 18th time?

Mess with the stallion, and you get the Spurs!

Sonnybelfast

blake, when he goes to houston after the season and gets some akim knowledge will be unstopable and so much fun to watch. he's just a kid enjoying himself and this should shame all those anal-retentives out there who just want to fight and forgot the beaty of the game

Todd,
"Can you establish a thread dedicated to the Lakers Fisher problem."
That'll be the day. Medina is too busy talking about Kobe's shot attempts day after day after day. It's a simple formula. Criticize Kobe = More Hits. He's got no time to go over real issues. I asked him one time why he never discusses the PG troubles, and his response was because Fish will come through in the playoffs. Ummm, doesn't Kobe also come through in the playoffs from time to time? Yet Kobe is his favorite target. Go figure.
Posted by: LAKER TRUTH | February 03, 2011 at 10:09 AM

Laker Truth, if you go to the Laker Live Game Chat, you have the opportunity to talk directly to MM about things like this. Just a thought.

WOW!! All of the family is showing up today! Must be some important game huh? Well in the immortal words of CornerJ…LET’S RIDE LAKER NATION!!!

I disagree with trading Pau for Melo. The three strengths that distinct the Lakers from other teams are (not necessarily in order): Kobe, their three front court members rotation (Brynum, Gasol, and Odom), and their championship experience.

The three front court members have diverse skills and compliment each other really well. Why would you want to break that up? I also see Melo as a very talented player but somewhat of a head case. Why would you want that on your club unless you get a really good deal? Trading Pau for Melo, in my opinion, is not a good deal. You will break up one of the three legs on which the past two championships have stood.

Calm down, people, and give this team a chance to grow and to remember how to win.

@todd.. Count me in the "we are overdue for a thread by MM dedicated to critizing dfish bandwagon" I'll sit anywhere shotgun right handgun or bitch

@magia.. Yes ron needs to keep his lil brotha in check.. Shut his piehole or close his twitter acct

@jamf... Yes Mr laker is stirring the pot but he does have a point.. His delivery may a little rough around the edges but MM has a habit of not confronting issues by just ignoring bloggers. JMO

Not looking forward to watching mr ex longoria light up dfish 2nite.. Over and under on tony 25PTS.. Any bets??

Talk about someone with their panties in a knot...I mean, chill dude.
Posted by: Sonnybelfast | February 03, 2011 at 10:22 AM

Now Sonny, I'm sorry my brother, but you simply must show more respect for the Head of the Mamba Clan sir!

@To all Laker Nation,

There is plenty of @#$%! on this Blog that I think is Juvenile and Idiotic! But I don't go around and tell Medina to ban them! I might tell the Trolls to go back to Bean town but i never tell or ask the Blog to Ban them.Diversity and stupid Posters and Trollers is what makes this Blog/ Or used to make this Blog fun!!!!!!

Leaving this Blog at the time is not a real solution. Banning and silencing Fans is not a real solution!!!!!

Laker Nation do not let yourself be silenced!!!!!!!!!!!

Repost Compost

San Antonio Spurs Day...where seldom is heard...

Question for the day:

(You have 2-seconds to answer correctly)

Which National Basketball Association team
has been a perennial contender or champion over the last decade,
does not cheat through blatant and favored treatment from the league,
has players who stay out of trouble and are generally a class act,
and doesn't need a $95 million dollar payroll to stay in the hunt?

Of course!

That would be the Los Angeles Lakers! BuzZzZzZzZzpfffhffft

The San Antonio Spurs??? Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding!!!!!!!!!

The Spurs...a team any community of moral standing can be proud of!!!

Go Kings!
Go San Francisco Giants!

Sonnybelfast

*********************************************************************
Sonnybelfast,

This is personal comment for you. I got it, you could not get over game 7 in Western conference where Lakers beat Kings after being down, what 17? When our Lakers get 2nd 3peat, I'm sure you're not going to be here to admit anything. You all trolls identical. When slightest sign of turmoil you shows up in numbers only to disappear when out team winning at all.

Posted by: LAL_Fan | February 03, 2011 at 08:11 AM

What can I say...except like so many other Laker fans, you are either an idiot,
dishonest, uninformed, or all three.

Take a peek a the history of this blog over the past 6 years, knuckle-head.
See when it is that I show up, and don't show up.
I can't even establish a pattern...you certainly won't be able to.

Oh...and the refs took it to the 7th game...not the Lakers.
Should already have been long decided.
Everyone in the league knows it...even if they won't admit it.
Know what I mean?

Go Sacramento Kings of Basketball!

Sonnybelfast

Sonnybelfast


Preach Mr. Laker Preach!! I may not agree with some of the things you say, but I will defend your right to say them! Carry On Sir!!

A win against the Spurs will go a long way to restoring the swagger. I hope Drew gets over his owie and plays. Let's see, if Kobe had a bruise would he play? If Lamar had a bruise would he play? If Fisher had a bruise, would he play? How about Ron? Is Shaw right? Are the toughest guys on the team the smaller guys? Come on Drew! This is a big game! Saddle up and ride!!!

I am a Lakerholic.

Sonny - believe me, there's no way I'm discussing my panties with you, be they in knots or otherwise. I consider that Mr. Faker idiot a bum, with nothing to contribute. Hence the scourging. You, however trollish you may be at times, are at least good for some amusement. And you liked my profile, so you're ok in my book. Well - except for calling me "dude". What's up with that?

Don't kid yourselves.

This is a must win game for the Lakers.

Lose tonight...especially if they man-handle you,
you may not win another game.

I hear Bynum is injured, yet again.
Maybe he's injury prone.

Where seldom is heard...a discouraging word...

Wonder what Pop's got up his sleeve for tonight?

Go Kings!

Sonnybelfast

Johnny V - I devoted an entire post to Kobe's 41 points against the Celtics to illustrate why he was in the right to take all those shots. It further confirmed my point that no one was being aggressive enough to warrant getting a look

Oh...and one more thing, before I finally try to get some sleep, LAL_...

If the Lakers three-peat, I'm what?
Not going to admit what?
You just don't get it, do you?

The Lakers are a joke if they don't win...
Get that? A joke if they don't win!

I mean, how could it be possible for the Lakers not to win?
Everyone in the league expects them to be in the thick of it
every season, and are rightfully shocked when they are not.

And what team wouldn't win championships with a 95 million dollar payroll,
media ($$$) attention and encouragement, NBA ($$$) help across the board...
year after year after year...I mean...even Laker fans openly joke about 'stealing' players from other teams.

Even today...you've already placed either Durant of Blake in your line-up...
and I'm sure when the time comes...YOUR league will do what it can to make that a reality.

No...True NBA fans don't hate you because they ain't you....
That's your own little La La Land delusion.

They hate you, because you are you.

See you virtually at the game...if I make it...
I never know for sure when that will be...and neither do you.

Go Kings!

Sonnybelfast

@justanothermambafan Anytime I've written something about a treadmill, I have put shrimp up for the past two weeks. Just hasn't happened enough recently. What do you mean by screen door after a new thread is up

No...True NBA fans don't hate you because they ain't you....
That's your own little La La Land delusion.
Posted by: Sonnybelfast | February 03, 2011 at 11:06 AM

Sonny,
I guess fans of Lakers can't be true NBA fans. Come on Sonny, I thought you were better than that!

At the end of June the Lakers will be what they should be and have been for two years running, champions. However, we all know that a $95,000,00o payroll doesn't guarantee anything (i.e. the Yankees), the games still have to be played.

Moreover, there ain't a thing wrong with having the money and the cajones to assemble some the best talent in the world on one team, actually the Lakers organization has gotten a great return on their investment, unlike the some other teams!

Sleep well!

Go Lakers,!
In Buss we Trust !!
and Long Live the Saint!!!

A win against the Spurs will go a long way to restoring the swagger. Posted by: Lakerholic | February 03, 2011 at 10:44 AM

Yes it will Lakerholic but, I think The Real Laker Girls have shown plenty of Swagger today!! Good Post! Carry on my brother!!

mamba24- Another motivating roll call, really nice!

BLOG CRUE- I'll be watching tonight's game from the back seat with my helmet on. I believe scripts in Hollywood always have to be written well and that sometimes includes static. I hope our static thus far unites our team.

Colorado loves our World Champion Lakers!

Hello Laker Nation!

Mark Medina, I think you're doing a good job at attempting to keep the trolls at bay. I hope the histrionic cries of victimization aren't bothering you too much.

I went to the Clippers game last night. I've been to three Clippers games and each time I've been featured on the Jumbotron... and each time the Clippers have lost. So, I've come to the inevitable conclusion that I OR THE JUMBOTRON is to blame. It's most unsettling.

Regarding trade talk, I don't see it happening. We have the best combination of players we can get. They just need to start playing together with fire.

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

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

GO LAKERS!!!!

Todd,

>>>Kirk Hinrich isn't the answer -- please.

Okay, it's GM Todd.

So tell us, oh wise and powerful GM... Who is the point guard who the Lakers can obtain, and who do we have to give up to get them?

Tell us how Chicago is just dying to trade us Derrick Rose for Luke Walton and a bag of chips. Seriously, I'm dying to know.

LongTimeLakerFan,

Most of these wannabe GMs have no idea what they're talking about.

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

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

GO LAKERS!!!!
