Lakers Home Opener GT: Rockets at Lakers (7.30p)

Finally, something to keep our minds off the World Series. Yao Ming and Aaron Brooks take on Derek, Pau, Lamar, Ron, and some other guy whose name escapes me.

Where amazing happens? Like, three-peat amazing? We'll see, starting tonight.

GO FAB!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Miami Heat look bad. Who could've thought that bringing LeBron, Wade and Bosh together would not work out initially?

MR. F said...

It's still anybody's game, and I'm not surprised that it'd take some time for the Heat to figure out how to play with each other.

Fred's Brim said...

LeBron turning it on

Steve Sax said...

miami down by 11 with three minutes left to go

can't wait for lebron's next special: The Next Decision

MR. F said...

Decision 2: Decision Harder.

Steve Sax said...

hey look, boise state is beating up on another cream puff

(yawns)

Steve Sax said...

Decision 2: Do Over

MR. F said...

3 point game.

Eric Karros said...

Laker season opener GT? I guess this is what we do between rounds of the puzzle championship.

Eric Karros said...

Yeah, the Heat is coming back...

MR. F said...

Gotta charge up the hate for tomorrow, EK.

Spanky said...

Who's going to take the last shot for Miami? I say Wade is going to defer to Lebron.

Steve Sax said...

Six point lead for BOS with 0:49

MR. F said...

And Boston wins.

karina said...

Go Lakers!

MR. F said...

Epale Karina! Go Lakers!

Steve Sax said...

How funny that the Lakers' massage therapist is awarded his ring to coldplay's "fix you".

Spanky said...

Lakers Baby!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Odom scores the first points of the 2010-11 season.

Spanky said...

Ron Ron!

Spanky said...

Frijole!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Caracter must be good if he's Phil's first option with Odom in foul trouble.

Spanky said...

Caracter should be coming out pretty quick.

Spanky said...

Ron Ron had his shot blocked by Yao like 5 times during that sequence.

Fred's Brim said...

In what quarter will Yao break his foot?

Fred's Brim said...

Watching these games, I realize I don't know any NBA players, and it's mostly the American players. I used to know every player after watching them for 3-4 years in college.

One guy I wished I didn't know about was Chase Buddinger. That guy is wack.

Fred's Brim said...

the least they could do with that HP/Dr Dre ad would be to sync up the beat with Dre's head nod

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kevin Martin is an underrated player. Really great outside shooter.

Spanky said...

I hate Phil Jackson.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Yeah, fuck those 13 rings (two as a player).

MR. F said...

Yes, but does he keep those rings in boxes?

Spanky said...

He gets to sleep with Jeannie Buss every night.

Spanky said...

Kobe is already grasping at his finger.

MR. F said...

=(

Spanky said...

FB's homey with a basket.

Spanky said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Wake up Lakers. Assholes

Spanky said...

I would have taken a charge against Cheryl Miller.

Spanky said...

Ron Ron putting up threes' like he's Kukoc

Spanky said...

Ron Ron missing threes' like he is Ron Ron.

Pedro Guerrero said...

Good to see D Fish worked on his J this offseason. We need Blake to play more and save the old man for the playoffs.

Spanky said...

Weak ass pass Khlodum

Steve Sax said...

Matt Barnes with a key rebound! Rockets by two.

Steve Sax said...

Oh man, Skyline looks horrible.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I've seen more of Pedro Guerrero today than I did during the entire Dodger season.

Spanky said...

Fuck Yeah! Brown

Steve Sax said...

Lakers in the lead 88-86!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Shannon good.

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK YEAH SHANNON BROWN!

Steve Sax said...

Shannon Brown!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Sorry I'm late up in dis bish. Late night at work then a HOA meeting. Glad to see there's a two-time defending World Champion Los Angeles Lakers Game Thread!




(cries, but from Lakers pride)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I cannot stress just how much I prefer Blake to Farmar.

Steve Sax said...

What is up with that logo jumping on the scoreboard (over the team abbreviation) before the points are recorded? Is that new?

Spanky said...

Yao Ming looks like he is struggling with his balance.

Steve Sax said...

Mr LA SC, as someone who didn't watch the Lakers to closely last year, why Blake > Farmar?

Dusty Baker said...

BROWN AGAIN!

Spanky said...

Shannon Fucking Brown!

Dusty Baker said...

FUUUUUUUCK YEAHHHHH!

Spanky said...

Dude is on fire.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Because Blake is so much smarter and more efficient than Farmar. Farmar couldn't shoot a three to save his life, always dove for a ball, couldn't pass, and never ran good routes off the ball.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I like Shannon.

Dusty Baker said...

It should be noted:

Can't spell (Miami) Heat without the H-A-T-E.

Steve Sax said...

Good commercial for Force Unleashed 2: is it any good? Never played 1.

Steve Sax said...

Blake's ears aren't as big as Farmar's, though

Steve Sax said...

Blake is really gaunt, however. So he's got that going for him.

Spanky said...

Khlodum!

Mr. Customer said...

I'll be damned, the boys really poured it on in the fourth.

Steve Sax said...

Can't really see how that "no whining rule" is employed here in the fourth qtr.

Dusty Baker said...

@ Sax

Which is nice.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm trying to employ the "no whining" rule here at home as well.

Steve Sax said...

One pt LAL lead, final minute

Steve Sax said...

Rockets by one, 0:50

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

THAT'S WHY I LIKE BLAKE

Steve Sax said...

Oh, that's why you like Blake.

Got it.

Spanky said...

Steve Blake in da Hizzouse

Steve Sax said...

Nice setup there MLASC

Dusty Baker said...

Wash yer hair, number four for Houston!

Steve Sax said...

Are Reggie, Cheryl, and Brad Miller all related?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Brad's adopted. Makes Thanksgiving dinners really awkward.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That was an incredibly poorly chosen shot.

Mr. Customer said...

Pretty ballsy to go for the block on the three, but there it is.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

One game down, 81 more to go.

Steve Sax said...

I'm surprised they went for the tie. If Battier had waited a second it looked like a Rocket was coming free on the perimeter.

MR. F said...

Point guard defense! Awesome!

Dusty Baker said...

I'm not surprised that Houston wasn't able to execute in the end. I am surprised that Yao Ming's ankle did not fall off.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I guess Houston wanted to play it safe. Which is ironic, because they chose one of the most difficult shots possible.

Dusty Baker said...

What is this strange "defense" you speak of, F'man?

Paul said...

I had to hear a conversation about the amazing Brian Wilson over overpriced Chardonnay with idiots at a work function.
My brain cramped up from stopping from yelling asshole piece of shit.

I might not make it out of the city without a stroke this week.

Paul said...

Loved Fernando nation. It made me miss the ravine big time.
