    Re: lakers weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    is great to be able to say my team is NBA champions again..i have no ill will to send to anyone who has helped us win titles in the past tho..

    Anyway back to our current Lakers...i didnt think we played that well during the 5 games,certainly not the best that we can....seeing as we still won 4 games to scary must that be for the rest of the NBA??

    the best part from the finals i got apart from the obvious fact that we won them and PJ got his record breaking tenth ring as a coach...was the play of the other guys apart from Kobe..Kobe may have been MVP and im not knocking him atall..but no player has ever won a championship on his own...not even Jordan in his prime.

    Gasol,Ariza,Fish,Odom & Bynum all played key roles and stepped up at different times during the series when they was needed most...if they hadnt..Kobe`s play alone wouldnt have won us the title.

      Kobe comparable to Jordan? Please.
      by AvengerRam_old
      Sportswriters are very bad historians. The latest example it the trend to start discussions of the upcoming NBA Finals by posing the question: "if Kobe wins another title or two, does that put him in the same sentence as Michael Jordan?"

      Are you kidding me?

      Let's look at a few facts, shall we?

      Jordan played in six Championship Series, winning all six. He was the MVP of... you guessed it... all six.

      Kobe has played in four Championship series, winning three. He was the MVP of... you guessed it... none of them. In fact, Kobe hasn't played all that well in the finals, with a shooting % hovering around .400. In the three series he won, he was essentially carried by Shaq (who, of course, was the MVP of all three).

      Looking at the playoffs as a whole, Michael played in 179 playoff games (would have been more had he not taken his baseball hiatus in his prime), and averaged 33.4 points (shooting % of .487), 6.4 rebounds and 5.7 assists.

      Kobe has played in 146 playoff game, averaging 24.2 points (shooting % of .447), 5.1 rebounds and 4.6 assists.

      Jordan was the best of all time. Kobe does not need to be comparable to Jordan to be an all time great. The problem is, sportswriters always want to act like they are watching something that has never been seen before.

      They aren't.

      The New Lakers, and 10 Reasons they won't beat the Heat.
      by AvengerRam_old
      Lakers fans everywhere are celebrating their Summer moves that have brought them Steve Nash and Dwight Howard. But will they be able to unseat the Miami Heat as NBA Champs?

      Here are 10 reasons why they won't.

      1. The Oklahoma City Thunder
      I don't think the Lakers will be able to get past OKC. Look at the match-ups. Howard and Gasol can be kept in check by Perkins and Ibaka. Durant will torch MWP or whoever else has the burden of trying to guard him. Kobe will score, but he'll have to work for it matching up with Sefolosha and Harden. And does anyone want to rely on Steve Nash to guard Russell Westbrook? I'd put good money on a Thunder vs. Heat rematch.

      2. Teams are not made overnight.
      When Miami signed their big 3, everyone thought they had the best team "on paper." But it takes a while for players to learn to play together. It will be no different for the Lakers.

      3. Kobe and Nash are not a good combination.
      Steve Nash is at his best when he has the ball in his hand and runs the pick-and-roll. Does anyone think Kobe Bryant is just going to wait around on the wing while Nash runs the show? Mark my words. Kobe will be the primary ballhandler, and Nash will be relegated to the role of a spot-up shooter. While Nash can be effective in that role, that's not what made him a 2 time MVP.

      4. Age matters.
      With the exception of Howard, all of the Lakers best 6 players (including Antawn Jamison) are North of 32 years of age. If you don't think that matters, look at what happened to the Spurs in each of the last two years in the playoffs.

      5. Howard's foul shooting.
      When the Lakers had Shaq, his foul shooting issues didn't hurt them because they were so much better than any team in the league. This Lakers team, on the other hand, can't afford to rely on a 50% foul shooter in crunch time.

      6. The bench.
      The Lakers bench, apart from Jamison, is made up primarily of journeymen. Compare that to a Heat bench that has Udonis Haslem, Ray Allen, Rashard Lewis and Mike Miller.

      7. Three point shooting.
      The Lakers three point options are limited. Kobe is inconsistent. So is MWP. The bench does not have any prolific shooters. Nash is their only consistent option.

      8. Foul Trouble.
      The Heat are very good at getting opposing big men in foul trouble. With Steve Nash offering little resistance to quicker players like Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole (not to mention the big 3 attacking the basket), Howard could find himself sitting through a lot of a Heat/Lakers series.

      9. Dwyane Wade.
      Wade fought through injuries throughout the playoffs last year, and still put up very solid numbers. At the same time, because he was not 100%, some people seem to have forgotten just how good he is. When healthy - and Wade should be healthy this year after sitting out the Olympics to have a clean-up procedure...

      Daily Dime: How the Lakers can stun Suns

      How the Lakers can stun Suns
      By Greg Anthony
      ESPN Insider

      All of the playoff teams are now set. Sacramento, Chicago, the Los Angeles Lakers and Sacramento, welcome to the party. With three nights of regular season action left, some matchups won't be set until the final game Wednesday night.

      Among the pairings that are almost nailed down, I think the likely Western Conference No. 7 seed Lakers are going to have a really good chance in the series with the No. 2 Suns. That's based on more than just Kobe Bryant and Co. looking very good against a Phoenix team Sunday playing without Steve Nash, Raja Bell and much motivation. But this win still means something to the Lakers, because they dominated the game.

      Now if the Kings (43-38) beat Seattle at home on Tuesday, and the Lakers (44-37) lose at home Wednesday to the Hornets, then Sacramento would slide up to the No. 7 seed by virtue of superior division record tiebreakers. But the Lakers control their destiny.

      If and when the Suns and Lakers meet again, here's how I think the Lakers can win. There's a formula that you have to implement against Phoenix, and it requires discipline. It's about controlling tempo.

      So this is where a coach like Phil Jackson earns his money.

      I liken the Suns to a run-and-shoot team in football. And the way to combat that approach is with a running game in football -- in basketball you stop them by dominating the paint. That slows the tempo down.

      On this Shaq-less team, Lamar Odom and Kobe Bryant have to be the ones doing the damage in the paint. They can't settle for jumpers every time.

      A successful post game demands a double team, and that brings extra help below the free-throw line. This would give the Lakers' defense that much more time to get back in transition. The Lakers have to do that. Phoenix excels at shooting the 3 in transition.

      The Lakers have a good chance in a seven-game series. The Lakers have an opportunity to come in riding a five-game win streak, playing the best hoop in their division.

      I think it's going to be a very interesting series because the Lakers are a better basketball team than they were in the first half. I don't think Phoenix is playing as well as it did in the first half. This makes for a very compelling series. The key for the Lakers will be winning one of those first two games in Phoenix.

      Elsewhere, a team that clinched Sunday but is still likely to be in full playoff-drive mode is the Wizards (40-40), who beat potential first-round foe Cleveland. The Wiz are in a good position in that they are still motivated to keep the No. 5 seed and a matchup with the Cavs.

      So even though Washington is in, the game Tuesday against the Bucks holds seeding implications. Cleveland is the worst of the top four and the team the Wiz have the best chance of beating. The...

      How Bout Those Lakers?!!!!
      by laram0
      The Lakers were in Boston last night for their final game of the regular season against the Celtics. Lakers won the game by 1 point in overtime. This completed a sweep of the 2 game regular season series. I watched the entire game sitting on the edge of my seat. The Lakers didn't play their best game and still came away with a huge win even with everything stacked against them.

      1. 3rd game in 4 days on the road (all wins by the way)
      2. Beat the Celtics in Boston with the fans chanting BEAT L A!
      3. No Andrew Bynum!!!

      I would like to add that the Boston Celtics are the biggest bunch of crybabies in the NBA! Maybe that's why they lead the NBA in technical fouls?!!!
