Tweet of the Day: "Jerry Buss is on my commercial flight to OKC with what Charlie Sheen would refer to as "a smoking hottie ... Of course I noticed the 'smoking hottie' first and then identified the older gentleman holding her Louis Vuitton purse." -- ArashMarkazi (ESPN Los Angeles' Arash Markazi)

Reader Comment of the Day: "One of the best points of last nights game was that the effort really was there up and down the roster. You've also got to love a 33-to-6 assist-to-turnover ratio." -- Tax Analyst

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 & assured of what we are capable of @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 & strengths as they play along
all 82 Games. So let's enjoy this journey with our team. Onto the next win @ J24 aka (LadyJem24)

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. @CORNERJ
*_____________________________________________________________________*
In my mind's eye, 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 arrives.
They are looking squarely in the others direction while they simultaneously brush aside any with the
misguided notion that they are 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 about Boston. It has always been about
Boston. Boston is the only franchise that has earned our RESPECT...and our DERISION. @ FEARLESS
*_______________________________________________________________________*
LIKE FINE ART. . .--stand too close, and the brilliance cannot be fully appreciated --pass judgment

This Run of the Lakers is like Fine Art. Wait, just wait on it, & behold the beauty @LAKERMIKE
*_______________________________________________________________________*
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

Tax Analyst comes in with a Friedman! Congratulations on a well-deserved win. Now if the Lakers can do the same....

Happy Sunday All...

I'm checking in for Roll Call...thank you Mamba kind sir...

After Thunder and a storm...there is always Purple rainbows and Golden sunshine...

Lakers weather the storm and come out of top today baybee!!!

LEWSTRS with the beautiful metaphors, TA with the RCOTD, and Mamba24 with the roll call! It doesn't get any better that that.

Stop that!! LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

mamba24 with the roll call- just punched my ticket. Let's get this!!! Let's show OKC what post play and bangin' really means!!!!

@SEAN, WE GOT THIS!!!...LET'S RIDE AMIGO!!!!!!

It is the battle of Western supremacy on Oscar Sunday. It is on free TV, enjoy it while it's still here it could be rare event in the future because our athletes and owners are getting less money from the unemployed, SS recipients and illegals huh!

It is nice day in San Gabriel Valley, a scenic view of Mt. Baldy and the mountain and valleys nearby. It looks like the Italian Alps with snow flourishing on roof tops, morning froze on our windshields. It is a rarity to witness a winter such as this in SoCal. I'm sure we will hear lots of complain from Los Angelinos, the Oscars fashion setters who will walk half-naked this afternoon. Their exposed backs and/or bellies might freeze, very interesting to watch how they can hold on a cold red carpet, maybe a take refuge inside the Kodak theater even if they will be away from the cameras.

We have a preview today of Kendrick "Sonny Liston" Perkins as the centerpiece of the ambitious Oklahomans. It was just two years when they snatched a team from Seattle, today they want to slash and burn teams in the Western Conference. They want to overtake the Champion-less Suns, Jazz, Nuggets & Clips. Not too fast baby Durant & Westbrook, u need to run more in order to be recognized in the big league. An acquisition of one marquee or two players are not enough, there has to be consistency, chemistry and reputation established within the duration of a season or many seasons. There is such thing as creating occasional noise, reluctant noise and an incessant one, right now I would classify Thunders as occasional noise, will it be incessant one after Kendrick and Nazr? let's see.

On the part of the Lakers, there seems to be period of stability after the ASG. You can see from their body language that they aspire to win, Gasol was thinking D in Portland; Kobe passing the ball last Friday; Fisher contributing a little, Walton not shooting more and avoiding TO's, Shannon going to the hoop and less of Monica. Artest turns-off his tweeter while Odom prefers perspiration than the Kardashian fragrance. What's the reason for the change? The lakerholics did not do anything new. It must be the sense of pride of the Lakers being Champs kinda' hurt and disrespected through shouted whispers from laden opinions of pundits during the ASG. These last three games, there is challenge & rebirth, they're active in the workouts with less rosy forecasts. First, they stopped NO at the Staples last Tuesday, next day they defied superstition of losses in Oregon, and two days treated Sterling's new pet Griffin seriously by putting him on the bench on the 4th Q. and today they will place the Thunder on their corner. Well, we got a ball game in the second half, this why we are here in the blog. We want to watch the Laker basketball, we also want to see our players show more passion in playing basketball, less in showing off fragrance and on social media.

Wait a minute, wait a minute, Jerry Buss on a commercial flight to OKC?

Oh I get it -- with the CBA looming over the horizon, the owners must be putting on a show for the players' union: 'See, finances are so bad that I had to take a commercial flight to OKC instead of a private jet!'

Mornin' CRUE!
Justa checking in for roll call.
GAME BAY BABY!!!
(My favorite 3 words)

Tax Analyst -well, if you ARE new then congrats on the Friedman. And go ahead and post as much, as often, or as long as you want. If you're not new, then I certainly hope your new leaf stays green.

Lew - great post. You're right on all counts. This team has it all - the most amazing player in the league the Black Mamba, the excitement of the best kinds of Hollywood endings, the oh-so-pretty offense that is unbeatable when done right, the greatest coach in the history of the game, a group of veterans who are on a mission - yes, the Lakers are the reality. And we're poised to perform an inception on the rest of the league, whereby # 17 is our next stop. The rest of the league is dreaming if they think they can slow this train down by their talk. It's not gonna happen. So chatter on Doc with your so-called unbeaten team.... announcers keep on sucking up to princess bronnie or griffen or whoever else your current flavor of the month is..... The Lakers are here. Holding onto the reigns of this NBA season. WE are in control. WE are in the drivers' seat. This is all about us.

GO LAKERS!!!

Mamba24 - instead of renting a Pod or storage unit for them, I'll send any new Friedman Awards I win your way. Happy now? Posted by: justanothermambafan

Justanothermambafan anytime I see a post by you I am ecstatic!!!! But I could not dare impose upon you on accepting one of your Justa/Friedmans. besides The "Real Laker Girls" would probably tear me apart if I tried. LOL! Thanks anyway, you're the best!!!!!!! Carry On!

@Justanothermambafan, thank you ma'am for checking in. It's always nice to start my day off with MY 3 favorite words...posted by Justanothermambafan. My weekend is now complete!!!!!

@Edwin Gueco....

Kendrick "Sonny Liston" Perkins....that is some funny stuff, sir! LOL!

I can't figure out exactly when Perkins became the 2nd coming of Bill Russell. To me he's a hack and a butcher who's always in foul trouble. In fact, he very rarely played meaningful minutes late in games for Boston due to his poor offensive game. As I stated in a previous post, OKC's moves don't faze me as a Laker fan. Pau and Drew can handle Perk. And, although Nazr Mohammed has a knack of playing well against the Lakers, he's a career journeyman. Nope, the Thunder are good but they don't scare this Laker fan.

BTW...Perkins won't play this afternoon and is expected to miss 2 to 3 weeks due to complications with his surgically repaired knee.

Nope, the Thunder are good but they don't scare this Laker fan.Posted by: bronxlakerfan | February 27, 2011 at 10:38 AM

THE SWAGGER!!! THE SWAGGER!!!! Get down BronxLakerfan!!!!!

Thanks, justa. I didn't see it before.

Arash & the Snake,

@age 77 the libido may not be in existence, it's possible the smokin' hottie is the care taker.

Bronx, I refer KP to the "ugly bear" because of the smirk and the stare. Those looks could win the best supporting role without saying anything. Too bad, we will miss him today, is Nazr playing? If he's available, I hope he is not treated as a royal Center like making Kwame as a superstar at the Charlotte's game.

@Mamba24...

Thx. for the roll call...as usual it was excellent! And, as far as I'm concerned, you are a RCOTD winner anytime you post!

How can we Laker fans not have the Swager? As you remind us all the time, this is the franchise of Baylor, West, Abdul Jabbar, Johnson and Bryant...et al!! Kendrick Perkins? He's only a legend in Doc Rivers' mind and apparently just a trade chip in the Celtic big picture!!

@MM...

Thanks for your prompt response to my E-Mail.

I sure hope we've had our coffee.

We're not normally a morning team.

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

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

By the way, that last Bruins win at Pauly was magical.

I had the honor of meeting Coach once. He was everything he was advertised to be. A great human being.

It's people like Coach that provide hope for humanity.
