One of my favorite couples in NBA are finally getting married! Congratulations LaLa and Carmelo!
Kenyon… The Lakers are the world champions. They’ve beat you two years in a row. Maybe it’s time to stop talking?
RealGM: Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin says the team feels as though they are better than the defending-champion Lakers.
Martin was asked by 104.3 The Fan in Denver what the team learned from their deep playoff run this past season.
“That you have to play on a consistent basis throughout the regular season and just better your position. Just learn from the things we did right last year and learn from things we did wrong, but we had a great run,” Martin said on the radio.
“I think guys know that we were right there and everybody in that locker room and in the organization feels we were a better team than the Lakers. Everybody feels we were a better team than the Lakers and no one can tell me anything different. No one.”
I understand having “faith” in your team, but even Kenyon knows what’s real. Oh well it just makes for a great potential rivalry in the west! NBA season please start now.
YOU HEAR THAT LAKERNATION…SILENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was the shot heard around the world-my call: 1sec left on the clock, Hedo on Lebron, Lebron gets away catches the pass: IT’S GOOD, IT’S GOOD! LEBRON JAMES JUST HIT THE GAME WINNING SHOT TO TIE THE BEST OF 7 SERIES VS ORLANDO AT 1-1. End scene! But NO, there was play by play talk, a break down of the play frame by frame with the TNT crew! It was no wonder Lebron could hardly walk after the first game, he has so MANY PEOPLE hanging on his NU–! Even with Charles Barkley “attempting” to be FOR the Magic, he was hanging on too. I wonder do they think Lebron will give them some type of renewed life for the game? SMH
Tonight Kobe Bryant walked into the Pepsi Center, undoubtedly with only ONE thing on his mind, win game 3! He could hear the GREAT DEBATE going on, KOBE or LEBRON, the words of his MENTOR (THE LOGO) violently thundering in his ear, & yet on the outside he remains CALM, but his MENTALITY ROSE ANOTHER LEVEL! People will NEVER understand the CLOSER MENTALITY a person needs to become LEGENDARY IN THIS GAME! I had a person say to me today: “the reason people show Kobe no love is because he declared himself great!” I’m sorry people, I never heard Kobe “declare” himself anything except being the BLACK MAMBA! We all know if this man played basketball in any other city, he would be RESPECTED BY ALL! I “hated” Michael Jordan, even moreso after what he did to us in 91, but only as a PLAYER (no rephrase) only as a GREAT PLAYER, understanding he had the ability to close MY team out of a win!LOL Yet media analysts have written off the Lakers as a TEAM and Kobe Bryant as THE GREATEST PLAYER in the league! How can I say that you ask? Because on this 23rd day of May, 2009 Kobe Bean Bryant hit a 3ptr with 1:10 left in the 4th quarter that put the Lakers up for good, and there was no shall I say HOOPLA, KOBE BRYANT NUT HANGERS (& why not), maybe it’s because for 12/13yrs HE HAS BEEN DOING THIS!!!! Have the media become so bored with the heroics of Bryant that they no longer even consider them CLOSER MOMENTS anymore? Absolutely Crazy! Then in the middle of the LAKERS battle royal with the Nuggets, they INTERVIEW LEBRON on his game winning shot…sounds like what happens to people who’s not use to doing BIG things when they COUNT?! I’M JUST SAYING…LOL. And people this is NOT in anyway a BASH Lebron James post, I’ve said it before, but if the media do not want to acknowledge #24, even when the BIGGEST COUNTRY (people wise) says he is, ok I’m baffled! I can understand the youngsters gravitating towards Lebron right now, but most of the media that’s around now, knows in their basketball HEARTS who is the best player in the game-KOBE BEAN BRYANT! Update: Stephen A Smith says Kobe hit 15 of 17 FT’s. Big three as the game waned. That’s what makes choosing b/t him and LeBron so hard. Kobe’s still the ultimate closer…so that’s the first nu– hugger, though he barely hanging on, w/ ability to fall off at anytime.lol
SO LAKERNATION it’s up to us to REMIND THE WORLD, that we are not going to chop Kobe’s accomplishments, skills, and passion into parts-saying he is the best closer, but would rather have Lebron as a teammate…smh, isn’t that crazy? Why have a great “TEAMMATE” who YOU WOULD NOT CHOOSE AS A CLOSER? Im just asking.Oh & Kobe is definitely a good teammate! 4get b4, the GREAT DEBATE is going on NOW!
because this man WILL NOT QUIT! HE WILL NOT ALLOW HIS LAKERS TO QUIT and that’s advantage Lakers! He would not allow the Nuggets to take true control to a point where the Lakers had no chance in this game.He did no let the refs, the fans, or even his younger teammates (Jordan Farmar receiving a tech) to mute his GREATNESS. Lead never ballooned past 8pts, and Kobe Bryant continued to be spectacular! Here’s the call: Kobe Bryant comes down 1dribble, 2dribble pull up (SILENCE)HITS THE 3! KOBE BRYANT JUST HIT A BIG 3! HE PUTS THE LAKERS UP BY ONE! 2008-09 NBA CHAMPIONS THE LOS ANGELES LAKERS! LAKER WORLD ORDER STAND UP! LET’S GO GET IT!
Hello Lakernation. Wow Game 7 with the Rockets, and now a nail-biter with the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals, which had me wiping my brow after the victory. Today I want to just express a few thoughts about a couple of things. First I will explore how the Rocket series really helped us to win a game like last night, and then talk about why we ALL should be happy we have Derek Fisher on this team, and why it may be time to let Sasha go!
I would never want to admit that I WANTED the Lakers to go to seven games with the Rockets, but nonetheless having to fight our own “demons” in this battle is truly part of why we were able to win last night. After all the defensive lapses we had during that 7game series, made us understand that against this Denver Nugget team, we would never get away with it. In the first quarter when we were down by 8, then by 13 i seen a different Laker team. I noticed that Phil called a timeout before it got out of hand, and that the guys would make a basket when it was needed most. 2 games ago, that lead would have ended up being 20 before the end of the first half, but though we were severely outplayed offensively, we never lost our hunger to take the lead! Which gets me to my next point:
Derek Fisher, wow he just continues to hit those TIMELY shots for the LAKERS. This man is having the worst offensive output he has had in the playoffs in years, but when we needed him the most, he came through, not once, but twice. The 3pointers he hit were at crucial parts of the game. His defense was not spectacular, but he did not get beat like he stole something either. But we can never understand the LEADERSHIP that Derek brings to this team, and that is priceless. We must understand that he is getting older, so their will be some deficiencies in athleticism, but skill only gets better. He also took a charge, to stop a run that Denver was on, so I do value having him on this team. We must remember that it’s all about matchups, and even Jordan had some difficulty stopping Brooks one on one. But against Billups we need Derek’s big body to bang against Chauncey. So it should be a better outting for him.
Now Sasha Vujacic…shaking my head! I have been waiting on him to come out of this “slump” since he started the season. We all know he was hurt at the beginning of the season, but we are now 7gms away from a championship & that shot is still not falling. Sasha was hired for one reason, to hit 3’s, so how valuable is he, when not hitting them? I must admit I love how fiesty he is on defense at times, but I am just as upset with some of the uncalled for fouls, because of how EMOTIONAL he can be on the court. Yet, he was hired for ONE main component of his game, and since that has been missing for an ENTIRE season is it time to package him up, & make a trade? Does he have any trade value? Well one thing is for sure, at anytime during these playoffs he could go off, and we will have to wait and see. But right now he gets my “smush parker” award. Hope he comes and plays the way I know he is capable of. So right now we are simply FISHING FOR VUJACIC! ANYONE GOT ANY GOOD BAIT?
