Well, Knicks is also -8 now...
Former LAL players not faring well in the coaching world. They both have ball "dominant" players in their teams...hmmm..
I think Fisher has no idea how to be a coach...LOL!
"Coaching" Kobe or Carmelo is not an easy feat. I'm not sure it is even feasible. lol
The one thing that all the fans that I sat with last night at the game agreed that Price is not good and he has no defensive or offensive game.
Glad that Lakers fans see what we see:-) We aren't being biased JLin fans afterall:-)
I hope Charlotte will be competitive against GS tonight. A double overtime would be perfect.
Defense lesson 1-1
My bubble-thoughts caption :D
Top Left: "To defend, don't be like Boozer standing 5 ft away from the 3pt shooter"Bottom Right: "Instead, get low on an angle like JLin to funnel your man to the left if he wants to go right. In fact, funnel everyone to Davis" (but shh ...don't tell JLin and Boozer I told you that. I don't want to change the lineup before 3 more losses ehm.. games!)
LOL Like psalm234 sense of humor. Keep it up!
I predict that Young's return won't help the Lakers.
Yes, they need a big rim defender not another volume chucker.
So much emphasis on Young coming back. Granted he could give you an easy 20 on any given night but, if anything Young should be the third option on this team. Jeremy should be the secondary scorer on this team.
Young and Kelly will bolster bench production who has been totally unproductive, especially after Ellington was out. In fact all of them can be 3pt threat to draw defenders out so Lin and the big men can do pick-and-roll well without clogged lanes.
As long as Swaggy doesn't try to be Kobe with questionable shot selection, his return will help the Lakers to score points.
Supposed in theory but they are still "rusty" after long time off from their injuries. Have to wait and see about Young to prove me wrong. Heard so much about Young (good and bad). Will hold my "take" on him until I see how he plays.
Nick Young is the ultimate 6th Man because he can bring scoring off the bench quickly. He's so good in scoring and shooting one-on-one but may have questionable decision-making. That's why he's good off the bench when scoring is needed.
I'm not sure how good he is in passing but I have more hope in him that JR Smith in NY Knicks
He will hog the ball on the 2nd unit, and not play defense, so what else is new?
Hope he's not going to be a high volume chucker. Last thing they need at this point.
Don't think so Kobe is back... I also found out... You really can't score more than Kobe bc like last night, Boozer was good in shooting then Scott took him out..?!
Lin and Boozer were the highest scoring players for the team.
I know that's bc Kobe just couldn't make the shot....
Do you think Young will replace Johnson in 4Q? Since Johnson didn't do too much on court.
Or, it will only take a decent couch to do what's best for the team: to sit a player when needed.
I'm not sure you did this on purpose... "decent couch"... "sit a player" lol.
Ha, it could be a typo or pun intended.
Paul Villarreal's long video for Lakers - Spurs game:__________
After game, Lin walked to Spurs bench and said hi to them all. He doesn't always do that. I hope he sign there this summer unless some lucky stuff go down in Los angeles.
Doing a little networking never hurt for future job opportunities! LOL
He knows D. Green I think and Duncan same agent..
lin will likely sign again wit lakers. he is the only good thing for them this season. with a healthy kobe.
Yep, and with the group from Taiwan going in and buying out all of Lin's merchandise in the Lakers store...That is huge...
Ya! I read from Baidu said they bought out all the Lin's merchandise in Lakers store..?! Wow! 127 also more to come w several travel agents in Taiwan all set up the groups to come in the future.
More JLin fans from Taiwan are going. Believe they plan it for at least once per month. Some are smaller groups. Yes, they will purchase any JLin merchandise whenever it's available in market. They are really die-hard JLin fans.
did any of the other Laker players do this?
Davis, I think, because they were near the Spurs bench as the clock was winding down.
Ya! I saw Davis too. Lin & Davis both...
No , if you see ESPN game tape you can see it at end . He walked over alone
Duncan and Lin have the same management team
Ya! They are .. Duncan always nice to Lin on court if Lin fall down or...
Oh true that's right. So it could just be that. I just feel Lin would fit on and off court there, I really do.
I want him t shine in la but my expectations are realistic.
You and I know that LA will support Kobe so far, but they are not beyond throwing him under the bus if they have to. Kobe has no more leverage in this league. He has pretty much burned his bridges with a lot of NBA people. If you notice that Mitch traded away Steve Blake without the blink of an eye without kobe's permission. That is why I say LA Lakers is all about the business. Even when Kobe was out all last year and many thought he would never come back, the games were full.. The new generation of Laker fans like kobe and they don't much about basketaball, but the die hard fans with the season tickets remember the Showtime Lakers and they want to get back to that.
