  • I like to know

    Most of us have a baseball and basketball teams that were fans of. Mine are the Dodgers and Lakers. I virtually became fans of those two teams the same time I became a Ramfan. I love my Dodgers and Lakers. But the Rams are like family, immediate family. I could eat and sleep when my Dodgers and Lakers lost in the 78 world series and 84 NBA finals. But, I couldn't sleep or eat for 2 full days after that Monday Night game in 1989 when we had a 17 point lead in the fourth quarter and the niners come back and beat us (And I swear that's how sick I was over that loss). So I would like to know, do you relate to what I just said or do I need medical attention.

    I enjoy watching other sports (basketball and hockey, usually) but I haven't been able to get into them as much as I've been able to get into football.

        OK Laker fans, they are down 1 game to 0 and already are down by 12 in the 2nd. What will happen?

        Do the Lakers have what it takes to pull this series out? Or will they fold as expected? :x

        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...

        Los Angeles Lakers
        by laram0
        I've been a Lakers, Dodgers and RAMS fan since the mid 60's.

        The Lakers have been on my personal back burner. I'm kind of fed up with Kobe and his crying.

        However......after watching the Lakers play the Suns on Christmas night I've moved the Lakers back into the front of my brain. I have to admit the team looked good with lots of depth on the bench. The young kid at center Bynum was very impressive. I know it was only 1 game but I like what I'm seeing. I'm not expecting an NBA title this season but we are very close.

        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?!!!

        Will the Lakers go undefeated this season?
        by dgr828
        Kobe and the 'Lake Show' are 3-0 so far in the new season. They should be 4-0 by Wednesday, when they hook up with 0-3 LA Clippers again. Lakers beat A. I. and the Denver Nuggets on Saturday, then the Nuggets promptly ship Allen Iverson to Detroit for Chaucey Billups and Antonio McDyess.
        I'm already psyched about this years NBA season, especially since my Rams are done for the year. GO LAKERS!
