rough being a laker fan
lets see, 2 nights ago we have a topic about how the clippers beat the lakers. Tonight we have a topic aout how the blazers beat the lakers. And I'm guessing next time the lakers lose someone will start a "so and so got up in they ass" topic again. That's cool. You guys talking is what makes all these titles fun. The last 10 seasons, the lakers went to 6 finals and won 4. They are on their way again. Enjoy these amazing moments you have in january rooting for your team.
i try and stay neutraul and be cool with the ball talk, but this jim beam got me being real.
The Lakers are the best in the league of course there the target. Gotta take what we can get you know, they've been hogging all the glory.
yeah, i'm gonna be real. The team is not nearly as good as i thoght they would be this year, They will still win 60+ games and probably win the title. But it's funny that i read people hating on them when 5 of their 8 losses are without gasol and they act like it's bragging rights. I just got to defend my team. They aren't unbeatable and they will lose more games.
I see it as this with the Lakers. If Gasol's injury is more serious than the public originally knew the Lakers will have a tough time winning it all. I think the Lakers will still be the favorite to win the West, but if they play either Boston or Orlando in the Finals they will really miss Gasol. Kobe needs Gasol the same way he needed Shaq because both were consistent scorers and garnered just as much attention as Kobe making it a nightmare for other teams. I know Kobe is hurt, but the last two games w/o Gasol he has had arguably his worst games this season.
kobe has been garbage these last 2-3 games. That is is no excuse,thats just how it is. He is missing open jumpers and all kinds of shots. Gasol is expected back on sunday and has said his current injury is nothing like the one that kept him out earlier. Fisher is the big problem. Dude is garbage too. The lakers need to get it together.
Didnt kobe drop like high 20s early 30s these last two games
how is that garbage
it's not garbage. But considering the fact that he had to take so many shots, and that was not nearly typical kobe. 30 when you take 30 shots is not good. Truth is for those that watch the games, kobe is not the full problem. But when other guys don't bring it, kobe has to be superman which he has done most the season, just not this week.
I'll speak out my man... I remembered you predicting the Lakers winning 70 games... I thought at that moment that's just preposterous... On paper, they are capable but it seems that if Kobe keeps on being the Robin Hood night in and night out, the Lakers ain't gonna be in that mark and I really don't see them beating the 72-10 record... But tey're definitely the favorites ome playoff time that's why every noe and then, we like to enjoy seeing the Lakers knock down because come playoff time they'll show their true form...
Kobe taking 30 shots is bad... Where are the rest of his so-called teammates?
I hope the media doesn't start blaming Artest for the Lakers woes
Kobe was 14-THIRTY SEVEN yesterday...I really don't like when he takes that many shots, if your hot thats ok....but, he has the wrong mentality in some games....He draws LeBron-like attention from defenses and can literally get his teammate an open shot every single time down the court.....I watched the game, and I saw atleast 5-7 times where Kobe absolutely just went to an I ain't passing this ball mode.....He needs to take a different approach because obviously his 1 on 5 approach isn't getting it done....
everyone always wants to take shots at the champs when things go wrong. its the same in any sport when someone is the champ...yankees, mike tyson when he was the champ, the patriots when they were. thats how it always is. most of the time its envy or because they cant talk about there team because there team isnt that good. its the true definition of hate/envy when you constantly take shots at a good team/champ for no real reason except that they are were you want youre team to be. i can understand why kobe doesnt pass the ball sometimes. yeah sometime i wonder why he doesnt pass but others he does and odom does something stupid bynum,artest or fisher shoots a brick. these shots kobe's taking arent different then the shots he has been taking early this year or last year they just havn't been going in the pass games. it happens.
and llperez22 i understand what youre saying. i see teams like the clippers,bulls, pacers lose games but no post about them getting punised or the fast rose shot 25 shots to get 25 points . the lakers are the tiger woods,jordan, MJ of this site and of the basketball world. if we lose TMZ ( some posters on here) are all over the story and we are front page. when the clippers or bulls or other teams lose it makes the back page next to the horoscopes because its not news since they lose more times then they win. and win we win like when we beat the hell out of dallas its not big news like tiger winning another tourney but win the clippers or bulls , pacers win it comes off the back page and gets on the second page beause it doesnt happen as much for them. and if they beat us then it hits the front page because its us. we are tiger,jordan, the late great micheal jackson
people dont make many post about the bulls,pacers, clippers because they just are that important. and when they do it has more to do with blake griffin, derrick rose, and the type of players larry bird drafts
That's BS lol. I've posted about when the Clippers got punished PLENTY of times. I've been very critical of the Clippers... Players, coaches and front office. I've been critical of the Bulls and especially the Pacers... The Blazers too. I made posts at the beginning of the season about how they'd struggle with chemistry. I've been critical of Nate McMillian... Even Kevin Pritchard. I made a post about Brandon Roy, one of my favorite players, and how he wasn't adapting his game. I've been critical about Rose... Saying he needs to be more aggressive. I was critical of the Bulls when they blew the lead against the Kings. I posted about the Magic when they lost three in a row... Make that four now. I posted not too long ago about how the Pacers got destoryed by the Knicks... How we gave up like 15 dunks to Miami. I was going to post about Danny Granger returning last night vs the T-Wolves AND the loss. I post about every team on here... Both negative and positive. I'm a fan of the NBA in general. Please.
youre one person.. there is more then one person on this site. more peopel are more critical towards the lakers then any of the other teams when we lose. thats a fact
And? Who cares? That's the gift and the curse of being the top team in the NBA. It's not just the Lakers. People talk about the Cavs too. People used to talk about the Spurs. People talk about the Celitcs too... I hear "their old" jokes all the time. I don't see what the big deal is. It doesn't matter if it's the regular season or the playoffs... When a team you support beats the best team in the league, you're going to be excited about it. I was at the Pacers game last season when Troy Murphy tipped in the game winner to beat the Lakers and I went nuts. I knew the Lakers would still probably win the title and I predicted them to. There's nothing wrong with it. This season, we beat the Celtics and my friends was talking crazy to Rasheed Wallace from the front row. Sheed said "It's all good... Y'all don't got nothing here." Lol... He was right, but so what... It was still good to beat them. That's sports.
So what? Its rough being a Lakers fan?? If I ever said its rough being a Yankees fan, I would EXPECT to be slapped. You're the defending champions, and are making posts about how 'rough' it is when people talk about your team losing?
How about this? Every time your team wins you're called overrated, and your little brother of a team, thats 12 games worse than you, is insisted upon as being having the better players... When people on the site start insisting the Clippers have a better future than the Lakers, then you can be upset. When your team has two losing seasons in a row, then you can say its rough. As of now, you should have 0 complaints, especially regarding the fans of teams that are significantly worse. Just enjoy the hate. It means your good.
ani didnt say it was wrong i just said thats what you have to deal with when youre the best. bad teams liek the clippers, pacers dont have to deal with that. i dont mind at all because that shows how relevant the lakers are and how irrelevant the other teams are. i dont feel its rough being a laker fan. i love it that we are always on other fans minds. when we start to get ignored or lose as much as those teams is when i will feel its rough being a laker fan. because at the end of the day the people who hate so much on the lakers are the same people who wish they had some of the laker players and have the lakers record. and titles
i agree Mkadoza thts why i dont mind.
Actually quicny, the people who hate on the Lakers ALL wish that they had the organization, or coach, or players, or assets the Lakers have. And especially the championships and the history. A franchise that their fans can and should be proud of.
it's rough being a laker fan?
get f*ckin outta here with that.
