G04 LAL@GSW PostGame Thread

G04 [email protected] PostGame Thread

Let’s start the new Post-Game Thread since the order of Disqus comments got mixed up possibly due to US Daylight Time Savings (the clock is moved back 1 hour in most states) I know it’s disappointing for Lin fans to have a letdown game after JLin broke through with 17pts/9asts last night. But it’s a great reminder that as fans we need to support Jeremy through thick and thin. Dwa... »

G03 LAC@LAL Postgame Thread

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 ... »

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... »

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 ... »

Jeremy Lin: A Perennial Underdog NBA Star

Jeremy Lin: A Perennial Underdog NBA Star

It’s truly fascinating to see the parallel of events leading up to Linsanity phenomenon in NY back in 2012 with what is currently transpiring in the Lakers right in front of our eyes. So here is one of my musings  😉 »

P08 LAL vs SAC Game Thread

P08 LAL vs SAC Game Thread

How will Jeremy Lin respond to this uncertainty being a starting PG? Now it’s clear that whoever starts will get the most minutes so it is very important for Jeremy to start. It looks like Magic and Kobe support the idea but Byron Scott for some odd reason talked highly about Price despite the mediocre stats. Again, let’s use the Disqus comments as the only option for Preseason Game 8 ... »
