before i could finish posting this screed there was a new thread. so now i'm gonna do it to everybody again. my apologies...

i never thought the Lakers would lose. the Lakers kept trying to convince me otherwise. it was a fun game, if a bit too long. i thought that this was the first game that i really started to see that playoff energy and focus, the kind that says "even if you play your best game you can't keep it up. i'm winning in the end".

i've noticed that there are people, some of which i'm glad are posting here(fwiw), who are confused into thinking that anyone really cares what they think, say, or are about, when we all know that this blog was created for Laker fandom. being a fan of one's pride, intelligence, power, charisma, writing skills, or anything else over Laker fandom reduces the poser to the level of pests and trolls(no matter who's in the right).

we've all trolled others on the internet from time to time, but it's always kinda lame, unless you're in that kind of forum. this is the Lakers Blog. we love Derek Fisher and Kobe Bryant. when Shannon does some thing dopey, or Lamar fouls a 3 pt shooter at the end of regulation, or Luke comes in and shoots like a spectator i STILL love and root for them, even while cursing, because i'm a fan of the team and i want them to do well. plus, i get to see a win one way or the other more often than not, so i have reason to be forgiving and patient. losers don't have that option.

sock puppets are lame, but so is picking fights even if you know who your enemy is. if you're going to have a war, it better be over something more valuable than who can destroy the other's peace of mind the most. that is not Lakers fanning or even trolling Lakers fans. it's just selfishness. this is not the LA Time selfishness blog regardless of what some think of Kobe.

MUD WHAT A GREAT POST!!!!!!!!!

well guys, matt barnes just replied to a tweet
i think it's safe to say im going to bed a pretty happy girl

I'm latin and I'm begging, please no more LOS LAKERS. It seems that every time the Lakers play a game where it's Noche latina, they lose or struggle to win. Maybe it's cause I'm superstitious. Still please no more Los Lakers this season, my heart wouldn't be able to take 3 more heart attacks this season.

It's the white uniforms!

It could be the white uniforms, but the Lakers have been able to win some games while they wear that color; specially on sunday where they have to wear them. Kobe had his 81 point game againts the Raptors wearing the uniform. Lakers beat the Suns in Game 4 in 06 with the white.

This year it seems white has not been kind (mostly on Sunday games), but I agree! - get rid of both for this year, at least!

OH SWEET JESUS!! ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I remember when Flea from The Red Hot Chili Peppers used to blog for the laker's website. This was the rookie year of Andrew Bynum. He used to refere to him as Andrew "baby Face" Bynum (not to make fun of him, but because he was so young). Man how this kid as grown up. We realy missed him in the middle last night. Anways, can't wait for the playoffs. Lets get number 17.
