Brent’s take This is the 1st “not a blowout” game we saw. A loss that filled with positives. Let’ me put some observations on Lin only here. Lin got 17p 9a 4to in 35mins as a floor general. He waved off Kobe and sank a 3 in front of CP3’s face at one point. He was aware of the help defense would be coming for Kobe if he passed the ball. This shows how good Lin was in ... »

Kobe said Lin should not be afraid to run the offense if Kobe calls for the ball. Will Jeremy drive to the basket more? Will he shoot more than 5 FG attempts? And what is Jeremy’s plan to get comfortable and communicate with his teammates? Will his teammates get better to run Pick-and-Roll offense and Princeton sets? If not, will Jeremy try to take over next to Kobe as Kobe himself suggested... »

After a beat down loss on the opening night against HOU, Lin and the LAL will face Phoenix Suns on Wed 7:00p PT at US Airway Ctr. This game will be broadcasted by TWCSN. The depth of the team just got thinner due to Randle’s horrible injury. Lin and Kobe will be the only two guys that the team can count on in my opinion. Let’s hope things start to get better game by game from now on. L... »

Brent’s POST GAME take Lin did good overall in this game. Looked really bad in the 1st 6 minutes. Finally the team started to click during Lin’s second stint. But he was finding balances on the fly. The 2 drives were very tactical, it just did not work in his favor. Kobe asserted himself too much, he has to let his young teammates grow IMO. Just play like a dummy SG for a few game won&... »

2014-15 Season Predictions

(Photo credit) This is an open discussion thread for people to post their predictions for this season, now that preseason is over. This will be fun to look back on after the season is over. Vegas oddsmakers have predicted 32.5 wins for the Lakers. My conservative prediction for the Lakers is 35 wins. My optimistic prediction is 45 wins, but it won’t be enough to get to make the playoffs. As ... »
