I'm not sure I've heard Kareem say so many words before.

NicJ said...

whats your prediction for tonight MLASF?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Closer win. Much closer. Game 2 from last year close. But a win nonetheless.

NicJ said...

Lakers in the sunday chick hearn tribute white uni's tonight.

NicJ said...

Im looking for Odom to show up tonight.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kia: the #1 choice of rapping hamsters

Dusty Baker said...

Sons of Devean George, unite! Let's do this.

#ILoveLA

Dusty Baker said...

I agree w MLASF's prediction. Lakers win, but close and tough.

LOVE love love our Sunday uni's.

NicJ said...

already with the fouls.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fish showing some early tenacity. Like it.

NicJ said...

i like fisher attacking, catches people off guard.

NicJ said...

NICE!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

RonRon really knows where to go to track down the offensive board.

NicJ said...

HA!! siddown KG!!

NicJ said...

that was a quick swing.

NicJ said...

haha, refs not letting the C's use illegal screens like two years ago.

Dusty Baker said...

Gasol w the nice soft baseline touch. 13-10.

NicJ said...

Ray Allen is on fire early.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Four collective fouls on the Boston PFs.

Dusty Baker said...

Someone kick Allen's shin, quick.

NicJ said...

pau's gotta dunk that, miss leads to Kobe foul.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You usually only see a performance like this from a Celtic if they leave the game in a wheelchair earlier.

NicJ said...

starting to look like a game at the Y.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

What the hell was Rasheed doing to Ron?

Dusty Baker said...

Smonk!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I know Sasha hasn't burn a barn-burner, but when the guy's open, give him a shot.

NicJ said...

terrible back to back possesion by Kobe, just held the ball on the offensive end and through up a bad shot twice.

Odom isnt showing up again tonight i guess.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

They need Bynum back on the court.

NicJ said...

great defense this Q lakers.

Lamars outta control.

Dusty Baker said...

Lamar - idiot. Absolutely moronic play.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fucking Gasol and his missed FT. Now Q7 has a tick in his favor.

NicJ said...

well, we are losing but i dont think we can play worse than we did defensively in that quarter.

Dusty Baker said...

John Wooden would be embarrassed by this first quarter for Lakers. Undisciplned, thoughtless tripe.

Dusty Baker said...

One point in the final 4:06 of the quarter.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That commercial's just turrible. Turrible.

NicJ said...

the crap continues.

Dusty Baker said...

Ten str8 misses for Lakers? WTF? I don't get to work and forget how to make a phone call or type a memo. How the fuck hard canit be to make at least 1 of 10 shots?

Dusty Baker said...

That's it. I'm changing into my Lakers cap.

Dusty Baker said...

Big Baby needs his diaper changed.

NicJ said...

KG back in, that might actually be good for us.

Steve Sax said...

Come on Lakers!

NicJ said...

Smush Farmar.

NicJ said...

Kobe trying to go one on one is killing us.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Now we're getting somewhere.

NicJ said...

that was quick.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

And now we're going nowhere.

NicJ said...

the C's have been scoring in bursts so far tonight.

NicJ said...

im counting on the C's age kicking in during the later parts of the game.

They give up leads.

NicJ said...

SOMEONE GUARD RAY ALLEN!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I really hate Ray Allen.

Dusty Baker said...

@ Nic

Ray who?

NicJ said...

game over.

Dusty Baker said...

Who is this strange Ray Allen you speak of, and why should Lakers guard him?

NicJ said...

seriously how stupid can you be? the guy has killed us all game.

NicJ said...

not you dusty, the lakers.

Dusty Baker said...

I want to think this isn't my fault, but it could be. Seriously, I changed hats now so we should be okahy once that registers in the sports continuum.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Dammit. That bucket should've counted.

Dusty Baker said...

Why the fuck doesn't that bucket count? I saw a continuation given recently that had about 16 steps and three minutes intervening between foul and shot dropping.

NicJ said...

@Dusty, Lebron?

NicJ said...

why are we leaving ray allen open still?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This game has been shitty on so many levels.

NicJ said...

well, now we get to hear about how the lakers are in trouble for two days.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nice steal from Kobe!

Dusty Baker said...

Did NBA order this in the interest of parity?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If we can cut the lead to 6, I'd say that's a moral victory.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh c'mon, let them play. That was barely anything.

NicJ said...

it will be hard to cut the lead sending Allen to the line.

NicJ said...

that is a BULLLLLLLSHITTTTTTTT call.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

WTF HE FLOPPED?!?!

NicJ said...

makeup calls dont work when you already took our superstar out of the game.

NicJ said...

fuck this.

NicJ said...

well on the bright side. Its highly doubtful allen does this again next half.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Okay, a single-digit deficit would be a moral victory here.

NicJ said...

if the lakers can get this to ten its a moral victory.

NicJ said...

MAS FUERTE!

NicJ said...

Allen misses one, what a bum.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

These butchered fastbreaks are scaring the shit out of me.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If Allen was playing for Philly, they'd be raining boos on him for that miss.

NicJ said...

what can you expect when Ron Ron is running it. haha.

Dusty Baker said...

I could never sit courtside because I would yell all sorts of awful stuff to the refs and opposing players and get ejected within about 6 minutes.

NicJ said...

WOW SUPER KOBE!!!!!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

HOLY SHIT IT'S A 6 POINT DEFICIT!!!

Orel said...

That was Reggie Miller-esque by Kobe!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

But Q7 gets another tick. I'm down 2-0.

NicJ said...

ray allen looks like he just smelled a dog shit.

Oh wait thats his normal face.

Dusty Baker said...

Super, super Kobe
Super, super Kobe
Super Kobe Bryant!

NicJ said...

Lamar needs to get his head together and contribute to this game.

Dusty Baker said...

Wow...anyone catch Kareem and Bill Walton's halftime interviews? #33 was with the Wooden family as late as 3 hrs before Coach passed away. Kareem said Wooden couldn't talk so he just talked to him on the inside.

NicJ said...

The Captin was in spain this past week promoting the NBA. He must have went to see him straight from the airport.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ron, I love you, but you have to dunk in that situation.

NicJ said...

keep feeding the ball inside, C's bigs in major foul trouble

NicJ said...

Ron Ron finally hits one.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Wow. Celtics have just collapsed in the span of a couple of minutes.

NicJ said...

look at that we made a huge run and didnt even need kobe to leave the game in a wheelchair.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was one of those "let 'em play" fouls.

Steve Sax said...

come on lakers

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

What push? What's with the BS calls?s

NicJ said...

god damn the refs are making this hard on kobe.

NicJ said...

if bynum werent injured baby would be going to the hospital now with broken fingers.

NicJ said...

the invisible man back in the game.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Go to hell, Jesus Shuttlesworth.

NicJ said...

at least Allen is going off in LA, if it were in boston we would be forced to look at plenty of shot of his mom on the sideline.

It weirds me out because she looks exactly like him but with blonde hair.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The Lakers are just trying to screw me out of a t-shirt, aren't they?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Enjoy the shirt, Q7.

NicJ said...

Both team look tired, but guess who is nice and fresh from foul trouble.

Kobe Time!!

NicJ said...

maybe the game will go into triple overtime MLASF

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'd rather give up the shirt than go through that.

NicJ said...

farmar and sasha in, ruh roh

NicJ said...

another foul on kobe, wtf?

NicJ said...

MACHINE!!!!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I knew Sasha had something in him!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Get Kobe off the court. I know he's fresh, but he's in serious trouble.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Boy, Sasha did everything but shoot the three.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kobe!!!

NicJ said...

KG didnt get called when he was holding Pau.

NicJ said...

fuck rondo.

NicJ said...

dumb possession.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Well that sucked.

karen said...

I can barely stand this. I'm watcing with my hands covering my eyes peeking out from in between my fingers

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lakers have to stop here. No choice. A Celtics bucket clinches the game.

NicJ said...

well there you go.

NicJ said...

review it, please.

NicJ said...

WHAT?!?!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

HOW THE HELL IS IT THE SAME CALL?

NicJ said...

clearly out on garnet.

thanks refs.

NicJ said...

fuck this, game over.

NicJ said...

already lost homecourt.

Eric said...

8 on 5 games really suck....

NicJ said...

what a horrible, horrible way to end a game.

Eric said...

Truly turrible....

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I've never seen such horrible refereeing in the last moments of a game.

NicJ said...

Thanks for nothing, Odom.

NicJ said...

that out of bounds call really turned the game around.

NicJ said...

now its a best of five without homecourt.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ouch. I think I just hit a stud.

NicJ said...

i guess rhythm is better than rest for kobe.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm not looking forward to three straight games in Boston.

NicJ said...

Is lamar even making the trip to Boston?

Well, the C's are technically worse at home.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Orlando won Game 4 in Boston, so anything's possible. But nothing revs up those chowder-swilling, Havlicek-loving, tea-dumping, Sam Adams-brewing, Yankee-booing Jersey Shore wannabes like Lakers/Celtics.

NicJ said...

you didnt even win a quarter, MLASF.

NicJ said...

KG, still looks old and hurt. Even after being "called out" by pau. that is going to be a problem for them.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Yeah, tonight wasn't my night at all.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

That game got ugly fast.

Spanky said...

I hate the freakin Keltics. A big F.U. to you A-holes
