G10 GSW @ LAL Game Thread+Chat

Will a sick Kobe play to prove something? Or will he rest so Jeremy and Boozer will the main creator on offense?

Will Lin be able to maintain or improve his membership in 50-40-90 (% of FG-3FG-FT) elite club in the past 5 games? Kobe-centric offense, Lakers bench and weak interior defense would still likely bring Laker another loss against the hot-shooting Warriors but we’ll never give up to cheer Lin to do his best with his opportunities!. We’re waiting for a game where Jeremy gets that ‘Linsanity’ look and is given the chance to lead the offense to a much needed win

    Step back 3!!

  • and he finally won!!!
    Nice to be finally back on top, isn’t it? :>

  • Michael

    The air is fresh up here ^^

  • blubell

    Catch and shoot more effective…

  • MoominFloren

    2nd!

  • Michael

    I really hope Lin has a monster game and wins today for the 127 from my current hometown.ψ(`∇´)ψ

  • blubell
  • Samuel

    Kerr means that he is ok with Kobe having to take a lot of shots for tons of bricks

  • MoominFloren

    of coz ….haha….bricking & bricking

  • KHuang

    Freeze the defense in the midrange, then either lob 3s over them or blow past them to the midrange.

    Oh wait – Golden State already has that strategy covered.

    Ummm, GO LIN!!!

    yeah, something like that.

  • Michael

    If Kobe keeps reading these tweets and tries to go out and prove them wrong, it’s going to be a long night…

  • sport

    We already know Lin can catch and shoot, he needs to work on his off dribble shots instead. Especially since once he passes the ball doesn’t come back to him! He just needs to run on fast break himself and just stop and pop.

  • KHuang

    Michael, are you like me in that you derive a sort of perverse pleasure from seeing LOWBIE BRYANT bricking his way into oblivion?

    To me, it looks like a 80s teen comedy movie like “Better off Dead” or “One Crazy Summer” (both featuring a young John Cusack) where you know that the outcome is a hilarious train wreck and it’s fun to watch it happen!!!

  • blubell

    Yes, he does. I’m just teasing @Michael 🙂

  • Michael

    The last few games I have been watching and saying to myself “there is no way he is going to shoot that…and….he just did”. As much as it feels like someone force feeding me my least favorite food, I just keep watching…so yes XD.

  • Michael

    I almost thought I typed that.

  • blubell

    edited 😛

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Ouch!

  • blubell
  • joyce ward
  • Brent Yen
  • Brent Yen

    LMAO…..hahaha no one will come until LAL start to do something differently

  • Michael

    Why are they targeting Westbrook?

  • Brent Yen

    Jokes aside….RWB fits current LAL team perfectly…He does not run a team at all. And LAL is not a team ran by PG anyway

  • joyce ward
  • joyce ward
  • blubell

    Nice looking mid-range Js

  • Michael

    So do you think Scott would stagger him and Kobe’s minutes?

  • blubell

    Will he be UFA next year?

  • joyce ward

    kobe and westbrook would have even more drama.

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    He does not have to. RWB will just go crazy every game. Kind fo resting Kobe while Kobe is on the floor

  • Michael

    Why would Kerr suddenly bring this up. Hmmm…

  • Brent Yen

    Must have been asked by a reporter.

  • joyce ward
  • joyce ward

    LOL..yeah right

  • MoominFloren

    Let’s see…35min only not 42min! lol

  • spiderman

    sick pleasure indeed – bring out the popcorn!!

  • Brent Yen

    He talks too much

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t believe him. smh!

  • Bearness

    Coach BS will be watching in awe at Kobe’s minutes.

  • blubell

    Yes, watch Kobe’s minutes go up…smh

  • spiderman

    Scott is Kobe’s puppet not Kobe’s “coach”

  • CJSHYY

    What? So now Nash talked to Kerr instead of Scott?!

  • Michael

    That would be a strange one to ask out of the blue………………bell.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Ouch.

  • joyce ward

    Makes Scott look like the uncaring person that he s.

  • blubell

    I agree with Brent 😛

  • Michael

    Well everyone is “watching”…

  • orLinaryjoe

    Yes, watching, and watching, and watching…

  • blubell
  • CJSHYY

    I know but I also don’t like Kerr… he is mean like last time no need to put Lakers down so much since they won for sure… today he sure will do the same again.. smh!

  • Michael

    Reporter: So coach what is your game plan for tonight?
    Kerr: Stop middle penetration and I talked to Steve Nash….

  • blubell
  • joyce ward

    He just keeps digging that hole. He will get himself fired as a liar and indecisive person.LOL

  • MoominFloren

    alright…..10 seconds less than last game…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Stop exposing your nonsense, BS.

  • Michael

    I laughed when I read this XD.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    That’s what player union was for.

  • Bearness

    So, by the end of season, Kobe will playing 48 minutes with 50 FGA?

  • MoominFloren

    Wow. The BS level is unbelievable …..good job Coach

  • CJSHYY

    What? smh! So like I said there is no 1st or 2nd unit in Lakers only Kobe’s unit…. !!!

  • blubell

    Sounds like a perfectly good segue.

  • CJSHYY

    Too short…48 min..LOL!

  • yeah, we know Kobe will be Kobe KHuang 🙂

    And please replace “LowBi– Bryant” to something creative like “Kobe No-Bad-Shot Bryant”. We try to prevent establishing name-calling (for insult) as the standard for the site to prevent users from calling each other names. But creative & descriptive adjective is okay. Thank you!

  • MoominFloren

    lol….plus OT minutes

  • joyce ward
  • Brent Yen

    sadly

  • blubell

    THis isn’t even news anymore.

  • Brent Yen

    Reggie Jackson just lost his handle. ball control really varies game by game. No surprise, he has zero FGM so far.

  • maybe we can get Musselman or Bruce Arians (from NFL) to provide real coaching

    https://twitter.com/EricPMusselman/status/534158173968424960

  • spiderman

    Scott is a genius

  • CJSHYY

    I hope everyone else all got the flu shot ?!

  • KHuang

    Ok.

    Kobe Housebuilding Bryant.

  • joyce ward
  • DJSlik

    Coach Scott is Kobe’s byttch. Seriously, the Lakers could’ve saved themselves some $$$ by making Kobe the player-coach.

  • there’s a reason he didn’t say “manage”

    it’s a code-word to tell everyone, “Hey, I’m just one of you guys watching Kobe minutes” :]
    Personally, I think it’s a cry for help

  • Barry Allen

    Translation: “Kobe take all the shots you want, and we will win. I have faith in your bricking ability.”

  • blubell

    Kobe, please give these young fellas some of your minutes.
    https://twitter.com/bgarcia90/status/534160213448749058

  • Nice! Bricklayer reference :]
    Thanks

  • Michael

    With ‘slowly’ being the operative word.

  • blubell

    Sloth-like speed.

  • joyce ward

    Translation: I have no plan to develop them.

  • Brent Yen

    TBH, even if Kobe shot at 70%…they probably will still lose…LOL

  • CJSHYY

    I think that’s the right thing to do for them… Lakers have Kobe for too long just didn’t know how to train these rookies… I agree w what HOU did send the rookie to DL for one year, right now all the players out of HOU all play well.

  • I think everyone is thinking Kobe treating this as his potential “MJ-Flu” game

    https://twitter.com/lakerspress/status/534160836562923520

  • joyce ward

    Now this has been picked up by social media…LOL

    https://twitter.com/ForTheWin/status/534161269629411328

  • GoodDayLA

    Clarkson got a lot of praise by ESPN last game. So lakers d league him.

  • GoodDayLA

    This removes competition for Kobe. Nick will play with Kobe not replace kobe….if you were wondering. Also not as young As other 2

  • Briiick

    Didn’t D’antoni use the same play time for Kobe? I mean Kobe is the real coach.

  • joyce ward
  • blubell

    Kevin Durant is probably thinking. Go to LA Russ 😛

  • CJSHYY

    What about Henry? He got 33 last night?

  • blubell
  • GoodDayLA

    Some easy predictions tonight: Golden state easily wins. Kobe scores 30 on 40% shooting. Kobe will look promising at times but it will be more of the same. Lin will have to scrap for his stats again like always.

  • CJSHYY

    If Kobe stays, both will not come for sure.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    I’m ok with all the focus on Kobe & BS. At least JLin is the not the fall guy like in HTown

  • GoodDayLA

    He plays 5 to 10 minutes. Often with Kobe. What do they expect?

  • blubell

    True, but I still hate to see Jeremy in this type of environment, too much drama.

  • GoodDayLA

    Last night ? No game last night

  • CJSHYY

    The DL one he went w Clarson.

  • GoodDayLA

    You don’t think BS has the front offices full support?

  • Brent Yen

    That he explodes like a Rocket…I guess

  • joyce ward

    Yeah i do, but when it blow up, guess who is the fall guy. Same thing happened to Dantoni

  • GoodDayLA

    I have not been following d league

  • GoodDayLA

    Musselman would get himself fired in 3 games for winning and benching Kobe. So he’d never get hired in the first place

  • GoodDayLA

    I think Scott gets that and will cry himself in the river of money he is earning like mda is doing right now

  • jolno

    Will Bogut try to set more moving screens against Jeremy tonight?
    http://i.imgur.com/X2FFJlf.gif

  • joyce ward

    What??? I don’t get it.

  • Brent Yen

    I still LOL when I see Hill defending like that

  • blubell
  • joyce ward
  • joyce ward

    I don’t think Scott gets plaything.

  • It’s tough when winning on court and on Ego don’t see eye-to-eye

  • CJSHYY

    How cute… they just finished the program w
    The Ellen Degeneres Show.

  • spiderman

    Hill’s nice screen for Curry

  • GoodDayLA

    I just mean these coaches will be fine and find consolation in the hefty salaries they earn and the strong buyout clauses their agents negotiatet in the contracts should the coach get fired.

  • Michael

    Hill: I surrender! Don’t shoot!

  • joyce ward

    OK….as I posted, I still don’t think Scott gets anything

  • Yascar

    I wish I could say you’d be wrong but I think you’re right. The next two hours is going to be painful as always for us Lin fans.

  • blubell

    So Bogut gets shot instead.

  • joyce ward
  • GoodDayLA

    Well he’s still making at least 1 million right for this season now being the coaching mouthpiece. Not a bad gig for most people.

  • joyce ward
  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    magic is there wow

  • joyce ward

    And the plot thickens….

  • GoodDayLA

    I agree

  • Barry Allen

    cute kids. great to see Lin and Lakers fans out in force

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL I really like this: “The plot thinkens.” Which way to go?

  • Alaingrvis

    lakers are still the lakers. 1-8 and the stars still show up. a bit surprising after rox days where we was good and lol no one showed up

  • blubell
  • spiderman

    If George Karl is not available, Magic should take over as coach

  • GoodDayLA

    It’s just reality. But we are all here because we remain hopeful! No matter how crazy it is, we are all here waiting for the same breakout moment and chance for Lin.

    Even if Kobe hurt himself, I think it would take 5 to 10 more games for this team to get a grip and allow Lin to play team ball.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Rober Horry: Need to put lin PnR after Pnr after Pnr……..

  • blubell

    TWC talking about Jeremy. Horry says pick n roll them to death in the 4th quarter.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Well he is supposed to be a home-grown player.. until questionable basketball decisions sunk in.

  • GoodDayLA

    Magic coached before. It was disaster

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    You’re .000001 of a sec slower. lol

  • spiderman

    was a long while ago. Can’t do worse than Scott, and will use Lin better

  • blubell

    Story of the night for me. Joyce keeps posting .0001 sec faster than me. LOL

  • GoodDayLA

    Horry is right but it won’t happen. I’m not sure if Scott is spineless (doubt it) or just doing what the management wants which is allow Kobe to get stats while team loses.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ah the white Sunday jersey which he looks so Gorgeous! in, with a capital G and exclamation point hehehe

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    If you got beaten by her, feel no shame.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Wonder when they wakeup. smh.

  • spiderman

    Horry is spot on

  • GoodDayLA

    This will just be a tank year. Let’s just hope lins role and stats expands

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Off topic, Wow Rockets scored 9 pts in 3Q and they still up by 2 in the 4th.

  • On a side-note, apparently Bev checking the refs’ breath is not a cause to get a technical foul

    https://twitter.com/BenGolliver/status/534167974328823808

  • Barry Allen

    probably when they are done tanking and get their pick

  • IsabeliJane*17

    LOL What is that? This guy is still relevant?

  • blubell

    He’s desperately trying to be…

  • joyce ward
  • spiderman

    junkyard dog wanted a kiss

  • GoodDayLA

    Tech? Ejection…

  • Barry Allen

    nah, he never was. he just thinks he is.

    most people know he’s Harden’s ballboy and nothing else.

  • Showing tough love on the refs

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    How many games suspension? I say 3.

  • Michael

    Why would you even think of doing that to a ref. Unless…. you don’t think.

  • No T apparently. Maybe after the game

  • Singapore BB Fan

  • blubell
  • Barry Allen

    bingo

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    LOL, love it. Thanks for the quote.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    This guy is an embarrassment to his team and the NBA…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Might be a fine too.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Barry Allen

    Kobe had the worst game of his career vs. the Spurs on Friday. He shot 1-of-14 from the floor: http://t.co/Nhm5X6rMGf pic.twitter.com/EHtC2SM7KY— SB Nation NBA (@SBNationNBA) November 15, 2014

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Staples Center became sort of a tourist destination. Not that I’m complaining though

  • based on comment, surprisingly no T

  • Brent Yen

    How long can LAL hang with GSW today?

  • Barry Allen

    I kind of want Kobe to shoot them out of the game really really early so Lin can do his thing. But now Price is back and he will get garbage time. That’s the whole 4th quarter 🙁

  • sport

    Rockets and OKC might OT. Does this effect Lakers game starting time?

  • Brent Yen

    exavtly, we need to hang there for long enough so Lin gets his 15p 5a

  • Brent Yen

    why? is this game on NBA TV?

  • sport

    No clue, I’m using a link for Lakers game but they are still showing Rockets game =/

  • Nice start. Lin stole the rebound from Boozer 🙂

  • Sigh .. still weak interior D

  • Hill needs to stop those painful midrange Js after 2-3 misses

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    When will they stop the big shooting long?

  • blubell

    He does that at least once a game 🙂

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe kills team bb even if he makes shots.

  • sadly, when Davis checks in

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Going to be a very very long game.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Feel like it already.

  • blubell

    Curry with 5 assists already…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    KT is playing like he’s proving something.

  • 7iger

    lead already wide.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    hahahaha Jeremy sets BETTER screens that Jordan Hill

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Kobe is going to shoot at least 40+ at this pace.

  • 7iger

    No surprise

  • sport

    Lakers are lucky Warriors had some missed shots but their defense is still horrible! Why are they giving wide open shots?! Run to the shooter with a hand up at least!

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    LOL the whole paint are wide open for bogut..

  • Riddick

    Ok, I can’t watch this Bryant ball mess. Would appreciate someone on this site to update when Lin gets to play. Thanks!

  • 7iger

    LOL

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    It’s sad basketball for the Lakers.. So predictable offense.

  • roberlin

    Lin’s teammates have blown 32 or 3 assists for Lin.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL

  • MoominFloren

    and the team will be lost by 20+ pts

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That’s minimum at this pace unless JLin stays the whole 4th qtr. He won’t allow that:-) Otherwise, it’s a fact and maybe more. Kobe is really Kobe.

  • roberlin

    2 or 3, not 32.

  • Bearness

    The theme with Lakers is that someone not known for offense has a great night.

  • sport

    Can Lin please take some shots?!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin does not want to be there at all

  • Bearness

    Lin is going to get taken out any minute so Kobe can have rest of first quarter by himself to shoot all he wants. Oh wait a minute…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Hill thank you for setting screen for Curry.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Does he have the chance after ball leaves his hand?? Can’t shoot with invisible ball:-(

  • 7iger

    David in early

  • CaliUSMC

    LIn only shot once and about get pulled out

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    No D adjustment from BS. Hill can’t guard Bugus.

  • roberlin

    That’s just when Lin comes out of the game in the first. Nothing new here.

  • Yascar

    So Scott how is this working for you? SMH

  • sport

    Lin standing around when he doesn’t have the ball and still not shooting!

  • Brent Yen

    I did not expect it was bogut killing the LAL tho…LOL

  • Bearness

    I bet Kobe is taking more shots than Lin even with invisible ball.

  • 7iger

    🙁 double digit behind already.

  • Brent Yen

    Seems like the stat line will not be good for Lin today

  • CaliUSMC

    Poor quarter by Lin.

  • sport

    If he doesn’t take shots no it won’t cause he won’t get to stat pad this time!

  • 7iger

    don’t give up hope yet.

  • Incada

    damn curry has 7 assists already and Lakers getting pummeled

  • roberlin

    If Lin doesn’t have the ball he can’t shoot it.

  • sport

    Look at all these Laker teammates they are not gun shy but Lin right now is!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I have to write an apology letter to McHale that he’s not the worst coach.

  • Bearness

    Not much he could do when he doesn’t have the ball, at all.

  • CaliUSMC

    I’m curious to see how close of a game the sixers and lakers game will be.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    With Kobe and the rest of the starters play how they play, I will be surprised he will get any pt 🙁

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He still is one actually. The only difference is BS haven’t thrown Jeremy under the bus.

  • blubell
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Should have kept D’Antoni.

  • Bearness

    So sick of BS’ rotation. Lin and Hill always out at 6~7 min mark. Hill OK, but how about Kobe instead at least once in a while so Lin can play with Davis early?

  • sport

    But when he has it he doesn’t shoot! He knows very well the ball isn’t going to come back to him. Only way he can score is to shoot after walking the ball up half court!

  • Incada

    this game is over

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That’s definitely true. Never want to have bad wishes to any player but am getting there….

  • CaliUSMC

    YEP

  • 7iger

    And Lakers have 2 assts LOL

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin never get the ball back once he made the first pass.

  • roberlin

    Lakers are +8, they still have a chance to beat the odds.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Words of Wisdom: To convince someone they are wrong is to let them have their way.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    It is over even before it begins anyway.

  • Bearness

    Lin is not going to shoot just to shoot. Sometimes I wish he would, but that’s not the way he is.

  • Alaingrvis

    the offense clearly don’t fit the player yet they take the same shots. and on top of that lay bad defense. i am gaining some serious hat for theses bigs. they always shoot the ball no matter what. if the miss 3 they will shoot it again. also they play 0 defense. how does this guy let them shot those shots. also why have they not been benched

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    What good does it do kobe?

  • CaliUSMC

    kOBE = in IDGAF mode.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    heheeh nobody in Lakers is fighting for rebounds?!?!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    He is the invincible, incredible, indispensable…..

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    The entire team are garbage too.

  • Riddick

    He has indirectly, by lumping Lin as being useless w/everyone but Bryant on the team. I’m just waiting for it…just like noWhere tx.

  • Incada

    uh rebounds ?

  • sport

    Lin doesn’t get to play with 2nd unit but Kobe gets to! How does that makes sense? Wouldn’t you want your best PG facilitating your bench while Kobe rests?

  • Alaingrvis

    kobe saves the lakers there

  • roberlin

    Only down 11! Woo hoo! Kobe actually passed the ball to someone wide open. What is this world coming to?

  • Brent Yen

    SO the bad about lin come out 1st is that Lin has to play with Price to start the 2nd……the worst line up I think…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Not him, it’s about the team.

  • Incada

    this is why this is kobe’s team…witness greatness

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Not he hasn’t. It is not the same as saying it as it is like McHale did.

    McHale is the the biggest Jeremy hater out there

  • sport

    Kobe only passes to Davis for PnR! But it should be Lin out there playing with Davis who’d be a much deadly duo! Scott is all about padding Kobe’s stats.

  • 7iger

    Kobe is a hard worker he doesn’t need rest.

  • Brent Yen

    There is NO greatness until they win

  • Riddick

    IDGAF but me, myself & I getting my basket god status established.

  • roberlin

    LOL LOL. Too funny.

  • Love Lin

    Just turned in.. hows Lin doing so far?

  • Here we go with Kobe trying to have his “MJ-flu” game.
    13 shots in Q1 alone.
    Only 15 shots for the rest of the Lakers

    This is so SAD!

  • roberlin

    Troll alert.

  • Bearness

    He is putting up stats in garbage team. Everyone else is just coming along for the ride.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Playing Invisible ball among starters as usual.

  • roberlin

    Lin’s in the game with Price. Looks like he’s going to play the entire second quarter.

  • Riddick

    Yup, it was a guaranteed loss when Bryant said he’s going to play.

  • LW

    Wow, Kobe leads Lakers in point, rebound, and assist!

  • sport

    Lin back in now, please score!

  • Love Lin

    thx, Melody~~ our boy is in..

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Let’s see how many times Price passes the ball to JLin. Bet is 0

  • 7iger

    He probably has the ball 80% of the time.

  • roberlin

    We get it, you want Lin to score. Can you chill with that talk, please?

  • 7iger

    There you go Ed

  • sport

    Ed Davis with the block!

  • Riddick

    Being subtle is not better imo. It’s just more deceptive.

  • roberlin

    Bad turnover. Crap.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    WTH?

  • CaliUSMC

    Iggy and Leonard got Lin’s #

  • roberlin

    When Lin has the ball, it really looks like there’s no where to go. Bad spacing.

  • orLinaryjoe

    that was painful

  • IsabeliJane*17

    It’s for you. It’s different for me. BS is more positive with Jeremy than Mc was, is, and will ever be,

  • Lin has to be careful with Iggy

  • Bearness

    Crossing over openly in front of those long-armed elite defenders is not a good idea. =/

  • TTNN

    what happend to Kelly?

    Ryan Kelly again with the hamstring?!! OMG what is wrong with this team?!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin will lose his starting job if this bad ball handling keep happening.

  • CaliUSMC

    Yep

  • Alaingrvis

    here we go

  • sport

    Aggravated his hamstring injury! He has one left and right side!

  • roberlin

    When Lin is looking to drive or probing the defense, ti looks like he just does it all by himself, and he just ends up dribbling the ball and not finding an opening. Something is off with that offense. Again, bad spacing.

  • Riddick

    Good for you IJ for giving BS the benefit of the doubt. I’m just not buying it. Just waiting for his true colors to show up.

  • Alaingrvis

    he was indecisive looking around not driving or shooting or passing

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    hehehe. Pretty frustrating but….

  • Bearness

    He needs to call for a pick in those situations. No need to play 1v1 and make it harder for himself.

  • TTNN

    they should not rush him back, sit him till completely recovered.

  • sport

    Lin hasn’t been playing well these past games! He’s just dribbling and not attacking or shooting!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    His head is not in the game now.

  • TTNN

    he did, it comes in very late

  • Love Lin

    hes hurting again or he isnt recovered good enough

  • sws94

    Yeah, ok. If it stays at this one. He’s got to be more decisive and shoot his own 2 pointers, create his own shots now and just shoot them.

  • Riddick

    Very frustrating…not sure how you can watch the travesty. lol

  • Bearness

    Yeah, although I said that, Lakers bigs setting a pick is a joke anyway.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Hate to give haters fuel, but yes.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Are you going to watch Jeremy or do you want to take this talk all day?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe now sits, Lin needs to stop forcing and let the offense comes to him.

  • let’s be patient. When Kobe takes over with ball-handling and shooting, it’s not easy.
    Let’s hope Lin find his groove and rhythm.

  • roberlin

    Nice hockey assist for Lin.

  • orLinaryjoe

    He should not try to play kobe’s game. at least he will have to learn it.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    This lineup is WAY better in comparison to the first one.

  • CaliUSMC

    WTF

  • roberlin

    Frustrating game. Too bad that Ed Davis shot didn’t go in.

  • sport

    How did Lin lose that shot at the rim?!

  • Alaingrvis

    lin passive today i see

  • spiderman

    Scott’s silly love affair with Lin and Price in together

  • Alaingrvis

    passed it to no one

  • 7iger

    more ball movement without Kobe.

  • roberlin

    That’s why Clarkson is a third stringer.

  • Riddick

    Nope, I just didn’t want to be rude & not respond. Done!

  • Brent Yen

    Clarkson still need to stutter his steps in fast break..

  • sport

    JLin still no points :/

  • CaliUSMC

    I predicted 12/5 ;p

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Lakers are hurrying their shots rather than setting up the offense.

  • CaliUSMC

    Hmm I’m about to switch to Walking Dead…

  • blubell

    What’s the difference? lol

  • 7iger

    Ok kobe is back time to watch something else LOL

  • Announcer: “Jeremy Lin played really good body-defense!”

  • Bearness

    Haha good one.

  • TTNN

    that was really good

  • roberlin

    First time a wide open Lin got looked off by Kobe so he could take a terrible contested shot.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’m about to switch to MasterChef but I just to remembered I made a promise I’ll support Jeremy good or bad… so I got no choice.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    YES heard that!:-)

  • Lin hasn’t found his rhythm yet but at least Byron left Lin in and took Price out for Kobe.
    This wouldn’t happen in Houston

  • IsabeliJane*17

    WAY GOOD. Hill and Boozer should be embarrassed.

  • roberlin

    Lin trying to force the issue. Looks like Price is coming back in. 🙁

  • roberlin

    Looks like Price is coming in.

  • CaliUSMC

    I would do the same. But I dont want to watch the Kome Show

  • TTNN

    Did Hill only grab offensive board, not defensive board?

  • Alaingrvis

    the bigs return bad defense also

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    No excuses, Lin disappeared tonight.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I know. Silly me. I watch sometimes. Mainly just listen to it:-)

  • Brent Yen

    So we know Lakers has zero transition defense. No one is willing to run back…

  • Bearness

    That’s what he does. Nothing new.

  • sws94

    Lin looks terrible this game, what’s wrong with him?

  • sport

    Lin playing great defense but his offense is completely off the rail!

  • roberlin

    Last time I checked, there are 2 and a half quarters left to play.

  • BobbyH

    The loser mentality already began to surface on the whole team. Even Lin shows some of it. Just kind of giving up. What is the point anyway.

  • Alaingrvis

    boozer and hill can’t start they just can’t

  • Brent Yen

    LOL indeed

  • sport

    Lin’s bee terrible this past 3 games! I’ve been saying if not for garbage time he’d have 2 single digit games already!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Can do by changing the two.

  • roberlin

    Have no clue. Seems out of synch with the team.

  • sport

    We’ve been saying that but Byron won’t change anything! He wants to tank!

  • Brent Yen

    No he was not…

  • Michael

    And yet they do, surprise.

  • orLinaryjoe

    kobe flu?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He wasn’t unless you will only consider scoring.

  • TTNN

    troll!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That isn’t true at all. Only this game thus far.

  • Bearness

    Unfortunately, I think their athletic defenders are bothering Lin a lot.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    It only get worse the way thing goes. BTW BS sits him now.

  • joyce ward

    Be respectfully of your comments

  • blubell

    Yup, last year in HOU, he score all his points in the second half 2 consecutive games… lets be patient.

  • Michael

    The almost got it within 10 with Lin and the second unit.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Starters minus 15 to 25.

  • Lin is definitely struggling offensively despite the good defense.
    But he’s had 5 straight games of double digits with 50-40-90 elite stats.

    Let’s not get ready to throw the baby with the bath water in the 1st time of struggle.
    Hopefully he can turn it around in the 2nd half.

  • CaliUSMC

    Lol. Gotta support Glen!

  • joyce ward

    He says he always plays better in the 2nd half

  • blubell

    One Asian to another. Good for you.

  • CaliUSMC

    Floyd loves him some Lin.

  • sport

    Lin has been unwilling to shoot these two games including this one. I have no clue what’s wrong. He had great defense but his offense is not there.

  • sws94

    Lin is helping defensively, Davis made a big difference. Lin is not playing with Davis enough. Lin is really poor on offense tonight. He has to figure something out and come out strong in the next half.

  • Pete Roces

    No point watching LA games, tanking mode in full swing.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol not

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Sit down Kobe. That hit should heal for the love of potatoes! Don’t force it!

  • sport

    Which Warrior player has some nasty nails? First Hill and not Bryant?!

  • 7iger

    Doubt he will

  • sport

    Kobe please sit so Lin can play his game!

  • Bearness

    Kobe’s sacrifice will be remembered forever. Now, let’s get Lin his minutes and shot attempts! =P

  • orLinaryjoe

    Wish it WAS on purpose

  • blubell
  • JW

    they have the original starting 5 from practice 1st unit b4 Lin got the start.

  • BobbyH

    Let’s hope so. But I never saw Lin’s body language like this since he wears Lakers jersey.

  • roberlin

    I have to admit, BS pulling Lin made sense in the context of the game. I don’t think he pulled a McHale, because McHale would pull Lin when Lin was playing well.

  • Bearness

    It is absolutely on purpose. Not by players, but by FO.

  • Alaingrvis

    idk if he pulled him he started the 2nd

  • Michael

    Kobe spoke of other players helping Lin to get free, haven’t seen much improvement.

  • CaliUSMC

    Haha. He’s the only Asian actor ever to ‘mate’ with a white girl .. EVER. He’s paving the way Lol

  • 7iger

    idk, Lin play good def

  • Lin is struggling mightily. The aggressive defenders (Iggy and Kahwi) made him super-cautious and second-guessed himself.
    But he needs to stop thinking about it and play fast.

    Hopefully he can gather himself sitting on the bench, formulate a plan and be aggressive in the 2nd half.

  • roberlin

    Having said that, I’m hoping that Lin will finish the game.

  • roberlin

    It was his offense, and with the team down so much, BS wanted to make an adjustment with the offense.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Well Kerr might have watched Pop. Put your best one-on-one defender against Kobe…. I mean Jeremy…

  • I agree. Defense helped but he has to seek deep within himself to contribute offensively

  • Brent Yen

    I think it is not that. Unless Lin just shoot, he was basically a sitting duck today because no one is making themselves available.

  • orLinaryjoe

    if that was true, FO has easy job

  • 7iger

    0-7 Boooo…zer

  • spiderman

    its EVERYONE’s offense

  • sport

    That’s what I said but some fans are in denial! I’ve been watching every game and Lin’s offense have been off and he’s not shooting. All his teammates just chucks shots without a care yet Lin just passes and passes.

  • CaliUSMC

    Every opposing team will start doing this. PoorLin

  • roberlin

    Man, this game is depressing, lol. Just gotta hope for a resurgent Lin in the second half.

  • there’s part of that. Teammates not making shot didn’t help

  • it’s a sign of respect but Lin would need to overcome it.
    Lin can do it

  • CaliUSMC

    Lin will score atleast 15 in garbage time. I really wouldnt’ mind.. lol

  • joyce ward

    Don’t say poor Lin, he learned how to navigate through the Rockets system, he will do the same here.

  • Michael

    Price D ORZ

  • Brent Yen

    WIFE: this game sucks, let’s me watch Walking Dead,
    Me: You are watching it

  • roberlin

    Curry SCHOOLS Price!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    They’re going to need at least 20 more Kawhi Leonards.

  • sport

    Now Hill down with his eye hurt, ><" Before we know it Lakers will only have 5 man rotation!

  • CaliUSMC

    HAha

  • Love Lin

    lol… u r so mean..

  • 7iger

    I didn’t even notice Price.

  • sport

    lol…OMG

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I think this is more like How to Get Away With Murder lol

  • roberlin

    Game over. Now it’s just a question of whether the Lakers can make this game respectable, and if Lin can get his game back.

  • I didn’t until Curry faked him on that 3

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL You are something Mr Yen.

  • GSW is all about passing but LAL is all about Kobe. Very sad indeed!

  • Alaingrvis

    the offense is so crap. the movement sucks the shots are always hard. the passes are hard

  • roberlin

    Well let me take it back a bit – game is almost over, lol. If the can cut the lead down to under 20, there’s a puncher’s chance.

  • blubell

    LOL. That’s pretty much what I told @CaliUSMC:disqus

  • Michael

    First time I’ve seen Boozer run.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    The friendly troll has spoken…

  • orLinaryjoe

    kobe can play if he wants to

  • roberlin

    Price can’t guard Curry.

  • 7iger

    Well, after 0-8 he needs an easy bucket.

  • 2 good possessions by the Lakers.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I’m right. Kobe is 10/21 now. I’m going to be right. He will shoot 40+ in this game:-)

  • Michael

    Price is heating up Curry.

  • roberlin

    10 for 21 for Kobe, but most of his shots haven’t been forced. Not too bad Kobe this first half.

  • All Lin fans breathed a sigh of relief when Price missed the layup

  • Brent Yen

    Lin is so down, he does not even clap…..very sad to see.

  • Michael

    Edited Version : First time I’ve seen Boozer run. ヾ(*´∀`*)ノ

  • blubell

    I’m hungry.

  • Rick Johnson

    And Curry not even bothering to guard Price.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That’s more like it.

  • CaliUSMC

    Indeed. I stopped watching. Just going to catch updates from you guys.

  • sws94

    Lin’s offense was off tonight. Good D, really off on O.

  • joyce ward

    He needs to snap out of it though and put his game face on.

  • blubell

    you and your apropo emojis…

  • he must be disappointed in himself but got to come out gun blazing in the 2nd half.
    can’t be too down on himself

  • orLinaryjoe

    he needs to snap out of it.

  • sws94

    He has to turn it around in the 2nd half. He has to look to move around more, get the ball and make things happens whether scoring or creating.

  • orLinaryjoe

    lol, snapped it out of my head

  • sport

    Lin’s offense has been off these past games and hasn’t been shooting and now he’s benched for Price. I have not clue what’s wrong. His teammates all aren’t shy about shooting misses but some how he just passes whenever he has the ball.

  • Briiick

    Kobe seems to have been enjoying the scoring yet losing games ever since PJ left. I wonder how long lakers fans still keep buying tickets.

  • TTNN

    he was a bit out of control today.

  • yes, no other ways.. even if he goes 0-5, he needs to attack the rim to get easy points

  • Brent Yen

    His offense was ok for past games….just not good so far in this game

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Well Jackson is the only one not afraid to sit down Kobe.

  • Brent Yen

    impossible, there is a wall between him and the rim

  • blubell

    Why is Jeremy coming in now?

  • roberlin

    Lin back in for the last 30 seconds?

  • orLinaryjoe

    so true. can’t be sad with a happy face, so go play some ball with the game face.

  • Love Lin

    break the wall.. 🙂

  • Brent Yen

    For D

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Buzzer beater shot attempt?

  • 7iger

    To show that he finish half and game? LOL

  • Michael

    To protect Price from picking up more fouls.

  • 7iger

    Did we hear that b4?

  • orLinaryjoe

    I’d rather see him dribble in circles going nowhere than to dribble in place.

  • sport

    No it hasn’t if you look at his stats yes he has 15 but half of those points were during garbage time. Last game Lin shot 9 1st half and 0 points 2nd half besides garbage time.

  • blubell

    He replaced Johnson…

  • Brent Yen

    Lin’s D has been more than good for many games now

  • roberlin

    Well, the Lakers DID get it under 20 points, lol. Just a nineteen point deficit! Lakers can do this!

  • blubell

    That’s what I thought too but Kobe won’t let that happen

  • 7iger

    Warriors have 40 pts this qtr.

  • Brent Yen

    He shoots at good FG%…I think it is ok

  • Michael

    Or Johnson…

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Almost all 5 GS players are waiting for him to drive. He can’t even drive in. GW is ready for him. BS did nothing to help out. Everything is Kobe ball. Not going to be pretty for him playing for Lakers as BS has no game for him.

  • Brent Yen

    This is true.

  • joyce ward

    That’s how Parson got a $46 million dollar contract, so it doesn’t make a difference. They are looking at points..smh

  • roberlin

    Maybe in the second half, BS will got to a three guard line-up with Price, Lin, and Kobe, and give the boot to Wes Johnson

  • Brent Yen

    Very true

  • ha 🙂 That’s the spirit!
    Lin can still turn this around by attacking the rim relentless in the 2nd half.

  • 7iger

    only first half and 74 points already. Already more than Rox or OKC whole game.

  • blubell
  • roberlin

    You be the coach – what adjustments would you make for the second half?

  • Foodcoma210

    Why do I feel like we are one injury (Kobe) away from another epic run from Jeremy.

  • Michael

    Retire.

  • Brent Yen

    Nothing….

  • Brent Yen

    word

  • If Byron is smart, he’ll run a play with some screens in the 1st posessions of Q3 to get Lin on the scoreboard.
    He needs Lin to get going to have any hope of catching up

  • Brent Yen

    unlikely….

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL

  • sport

    He hasn’t been assertive nor aggressive. He’s doing that dribble thing where he’s waiting for teammates to move or do something but they aren’t. He just needs to score off his own dribbles but he hasn’t. He needs to understand this Lakers team is horrible and no one’s going to help him score besides himself.

  • Briiick

    I guess he might not like to have PJ back two seasons ago?

  • Foodcoma210

    Not with Kobe taking all the shots.

  • roberlin

    No, I mean if you were the coach, what decisions would YOU make, not what you think BS will do.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Maybe consider suit up Mr. O’Neal for the 2nd half?

  • Barry Allen

    Sadly, everyone cares most about points per game.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Do the BASIC PnR plays rather than iso.
    Put a better defender in the interior
    Yell “PASS,PASS, AND PASS SOME MORE BEFORE SHOOTING!

  • 7iger

    “if”

  • roberlin

    O’Neal sucks at this age. He’s a 300 pound marshmellow now.

  • let’s not wish any ill-will or injury to any players.

    I’d rather Lin comes out gun blazing even if Kobe is dominating

  • BobbyH

    It is funny how the media is also enjoying the art of mockery.

  • blubell
  • Singapore BB Fan

    what’s the difference between a 300lbs Mr. O’Neal and Hill or Boozer? both sucks.

  • sport

    Put Davis and Clarkson in with Lin those 3 play very well together!

  • Barry Allen

    sit Kobe. let the rest of the players get into a flow without him.

  • roberlin

    Thank you, Coach Jane! Some very sound adjustments! More passing before shooting, basic stuff but stuff that works.

  • Brent Yen

    Oh…I will run Lin-Clarkson-Kobe-Sacre-Davis Lineup. ANd I will ask Sacre to use all hs fouls on Bogut and sit with some bonus money

  • sws94

    Is he focusing too much on defense that it is affecting his offense negatively?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    10/24 for Kobe; heading to 40+; Excellent back from your “flu.” Don’t like to be right but it’s getting there now.

  • Foodcoma210

    I just want to see ball movement. At least 3 passes. And I dont mean PG dribblng up, passing to the high post and passing to Kobe for the shot.

  • ask Hill/Boozer to copy the “poke-the-eye” defense by GSW :] jk

    Byron needs to get Lin going scoring-wise on offense so it’s not just Kobe

  • Brent Yen

    Does not seem that way. HE is just lost on how to run offense when there were not options for him to run.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    BS = KOBE ball. Pig can fly faster than making adjustments for JLin.

  • sws94

    I agree, it is time for Lin to help Kobe and make plays and score as well. If anything, that’ll encourage Kobe to share the scoring load. Kobe will lose faith in Lin if he doesn’t start playing like he’s capable of.

  • Barry Allen

    Byron can’t control Kobe at this point.

  • Foodcoma210

    I dont think itll happen, Jeremy defers too much. NY, Carmelo HOU Harden, and now Kobe.

  • Worthy, “Kobe scoring 28pts is the PROBLEM. Doing too much!”

  • roberlin

    Passing plus more movement without the ball. Too much standing around. I thought the Princeton offense was predicated on ball and player movement.

  • TTNN

    wow, suprise that he is this honest

  • Michael

    Best Answer.

  • Barry Allen

    there are almost zero plays run for Lin. It’s pathetic. That stay aggressive line was bull.

  • TTNN

    he struggles when a team do not want to be a team.

  • Worthy: “As great as Kobe is, they cannot allow him to carry the load like this. It’s just not a good basketball!”

  • blubell
  • sws94

    play Davis more, Clarkson, quicken the pace, more ball movement, get Lin going tell him to move constantly, don’t look for the ball behind the arc because he’s not getting it and take some mid-range shots, tell Kobe to pass the ball a bit more.

  • Foodcoma210

    First unit seems really lethargic. Second unit moves with more purpose

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He did, because he won his rings with Jackson as the coach. As much as he wants NOT to admit it, he has a better shot of winning the 6th ring with Jackson.

  • Barry Allen

    A good coach: ‘I want to see at least 3 passes before a shot, anyone who disobeys this rule will be out of the game.”

  • Brent Yen

    Given how LAL is doing. I think the easiest way for them to win more is to let Lin leading the 2nd unit as starters and trying to just outscore others as much as possible.

  • blubell

    because BB is a team sport.

  • sws94

    He has to come to the ball. Price did that. Lin is just waiting for the ball and getting free for 3s. He has to run to the ball like Kobe and Price does.

  • sport

    They’re not “allowing” it Kobe is just hogging the game by himself!!

  • I’m glad Worthy called it out plainly. Byron needs to do something he said

  • CaliUSMC

    Didn’t he go for like 35/8 yest?

  • spiderman

    this is so obvious except for Scott and Kobe

  • Brent Yen

    No one was avaliable, Screens were not coming…..he could not do a meaningful thing except pulling up.

  • Worthy called out Byron to not do this. Just shaking his head.

  • sport

    The 2nd unit are so much better than the so called starters yet Scott is stubborn and won’t change the lineup! Starting Davis and Clarkson over Boozer and Johnson would be the best!

  • CaliUSMC

    Did he actually say Byron

  • roberlin

    Worthy isn’t blaming Kobe, he’s blaming the rest of the team for letting Kobe carry the load. Same old story – it’s not Kobe’s fault, it’s his teammates.

  • I think he’s seen enough and had to say something

  • blubell

    Kobe: Let me set another record tonight. The team is losing anyways…
    https://twitter.com/LakersNation/status/534191676466937856

  • Michael

    The way Kobe is playing the last few games, is leading the whole team in this direction. I don’t think they can switch between team-ball iso-ball mentality that fast.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’ll yell “NO SHOOTING UNTIL 8 SECONDS LEFT IN THE SHOT CLOCK OR I’LL BENCH ANYONE WHO SHOOTS WITH 15+ SECONDS LEFT!”

  • TTNN

    guess so

  • Brent Yen

    I mean…current starters can finish the game depends on how they do on a day I think. But they need more fire power and speed to start the game.

  • LOL .. Horry said nothing, only “Lakers had to play better D” following Worthy’s comment
    Worthy said all that .. haha

  • spiderman

    EVERYONE’s offense is off tonight

  • sport

    Yes and the starters are slow as heck!

  • roberlin

    My adjustment would be go more to a three guard line-up to try and match up with the speed and quickness of the Warriors. Wes Johnson is giving them nothing.

  • Brent Yen

    It really means nothing if you can not run back to D…

  • yes, then hopefully Lin gets hot enough to finish strong in the 4th quarter

  • Alaingrvis

    whats pissing me off the most scott keep the same lineup with the same offense out there

  • joyce ward

    clarkson, no

  • Briiick

    Every one watches NBA knows it, Lakers are paying Kobe two more years to do whatever he likes, knowing it is going to be ugly.

  • Brent Yen

    Offense wise, they need to build around Davis and Lin.

  • yes

  • roberlin

    I hate trying to read body language, but, Lin doesn’t look very energized in this pic. 🙁

  • sport

    How is it possible after that 21 point game Lin just went down hill again. Is his ankle injuries still bothering him? He’s playing great defense but on offense it’s just not there.

  • blubell

    They know… that why it is more frustrating.

  • Brent Yen

    Defense wise, they need to build on young legs.

  • roberlin

    Well, he did pull Lin . . .

  • blubell

    My thoughts exactly..

  • Singapore BB Fan

    expecting different results?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    If I’m the coach I’ll sit down anyone who shoots 15+ seconds in the shot clock. Run around Warriors until someone is left open or in the best position to shoot.

  • sport

    Cause he’s not! Lin’s just standing there when other teammates has the ball and when he has the ball he just passes and it never comes back to him. He should know better to just shoot the ball whenever he has the chance.

  • He did say at the end that Byron can’t allow this to happen

  • Brent Yen

    M…they are pressure Lin now

  • roberlin

    Another brick by Jordan, taking an assist away from Lin.

  • Brent Yen

    I would not say that was a blown ast, because no one is expecting him making that.

  • roberlin

    I think the Warriors are doing a good defensive job on Lin. Don’t quite know what they’re doing, but it’s working.

  • In the 1st play of Q3, Lin did get a chance to run a play but chose to pass to Hill.
    He should’ve shot it to get himself going

  • Brent Yen

    easy, they leave their own man to clog the lane

  • sport

    Clarkson has been playing well these past games not even chucking shots and has way better defense than Johnson! He’s not afraid of attacking.

  • Carol Tiu

    Him too? At least, Jeremy is in good company 🙂 j/k

  • joyce ward

    So he did blame Byron. People are not stupid. Worthy can’t carry the company line any more when the defense is loading up on lin with no bell out from team mates.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    LOL!

  • roberlin

    Lin overhelped, couldn’t get back for the threee by Curry

  • roberlin

    JLin looking better on offense. Doing a better job orchestrating.

  • joyce ward

    Clarkson is a rookie and make too many rookie mistakes,. If you going to speak about basketball please make some sense.

  • LAJane

    I humbly disagree. I don’t believe he defers too much. Accepted stars can bully their way around coaches (unless it’s Pop) and teammates, but rising talents like Jeremy don’t have that luxury. They get benched and/or reprimanded for not following the approved plan. Jeremy does what he can to push his boundaries, but he’s straitjacketed by a seriously selfish superstar and a cobbled-together team of vets and newbies that either can’t figure out how to run with him, or won’t because the political direction of the team is too un-cohesive. I can’t help thinking ideas about him deferring have more to do with fans venting frustration and anger, which is their own emotional state and not clear-sighted about the team and business realities. Just my perspective.

  • Brent Yen

    helping one pass away, a big nono

  • Kobe talked to Lin. I think telling him to get going

  • sport

    Did Kobe just tell Lin to shoot the ball?

  • TTNN

    but that one was wide open under the basket though

  • Alaingrvis

    what a slow crappy offense its pissing me off watching this

  • sport

    Yes looks like Kobe told Lin “Just shoot the ball”

  • Brent Yen

    So far it is more like pick your poison thing. What you say are true

  • ok, I couldn’t quite catch what he said

  • LAJane

    It is entertaining, isn’t it. 🙂

  • Foodcoma210

    Ok that is one pet peeve of mine that just makes my butt itch. I hate it when Jeremy goes to help and leaves his man for the 3. Espcially Curry, why would you even give him an inch regardless of wheher he has the ball or not. Stick to him all night like fly on poo.

  • Kobe talked to Lin again before shooting FTs

  • roberlin

    Are you sure, or is that what you WANTED Kobe to say? Lol.

  • Brent Yen

    and a 2 just became a 3…..lol well….Lin could not stop that 2 anyway

  • Good to see Kobe tried to implore Lin to just shoot it

  • sport

    From his lips when walking to Lin looks like that’s what he say.

  • then give low-fives after FTs

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’d tell Jeremy to play choke hold defense on Curry and outrun Curry out of the building for an easy basket.

  • Love Lin

    Lins been cold, was it the reason why hes not confident in himself 2 shoot? hes kinda lost, need 2 pick himself up asap..

  • roberlin

    Ugh, Draymond Green.

  • roberlin

    Is it officially garbage time yet?

  • Brent Yen

    The bricking begins….

  • blubell

    Finally an assist…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    How to defend Warriors – watch how Phoenix Suns defend the perimeter.

  • Lin got his 1st assist on Wes’ midrange J

  • CaliUSMC

    How’s boozer doiong?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    3/13 tells all

  • roberlin

    He really can’t leave Curry to help out.

  • BobbyH

    Lin brings up the ball and passes to the bigs and then disappear.

  • There’s nothing Lin can do on that Curry rainbow 3

  • roberlin

    Curry looks really good. Lol.

  • Brent Yen

    He is good…

  • sport

    That’s cause once the bigs get the ball they won’t pass back out.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Undeniable. I like Thompson’s game more though.

  • roberlin

    Tough game for Lin. Hopefully he can get on the board and get something going.

  • LAJane

    He’s got to be bummed to have to keep walking his slow teammates up court.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin is passive very. i see lanes yet he pass it to the post man. this is a very bad game from him. on this offense it is mostly forced shot and i get he don’t play like that but he has to force it. very disappointed today

  • perhaps .. but he’s got to shoot to get out of the slump.
    that’s the only way to do it. Attacking the rim will help

  • CaliUSMC

    I like his girl more though.

  • Alaingrvis

    very passive

  • BobbyH

    Exactly. Disappear because the black holes. Multiple black holes surrounding him.

  • orLinaryjoe

    hate to agree. pass to big, disappear inside paint.

  • Brent Yen

    Scott praised how Lin was good at pushing the ball. But he abandoned all the fast breaks…

  • GoodDayLA

    With Kobe playing 40 minutes, there is no time to lead a second unit. Just like Houston Rockets problems all over

  • Alaingrvis

    he doesn’t have to pass it to them

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    None of the starters will pass back to JLin. Happening more and more often since he got 21 pts and took the glory out of Kobe. Coincident???!!! or intentional icing JLin as a whole.

  • yes, he needs to attack the rim to get easy points and FTs.
    not sure why he looked hesitant to drive

  • sport

    Yes the horrible part is Lin isn’t even attempting to shoot at all! He’s not carrying the offensive load like he’s suppose to.

  • sws94

    He’s so slow bringing the ball up now. Why? Price was bringing it up faster than Jeremy. This is an awful game, he’s only taken 2 shots and hasn’t gotten to the line.

  • BobbyH

    That’s the area he needs to improve. He needs to find ways to score for himself even w/o help.

  • Brent Yen

    Lin’s body language is so bad…..

  • Briiick

    The lakers seem to be outsourced for two seasons.

  • GoodDayLA

    You still don’t get jlin. How can u u call yourself a Lin fan? Also you need to understand his skill set is not Kyrie irving skill set. Lin is not a one on one selfish scoring maestro.

  • sws94

    Lin’s body language isn’t good.

  • joyce ward

    Maybe he wants play with the 2nd unit?

  • GoodDayLA

    For5 minutes away from Kobe? Won’t happen with Scott tanking for the lakers

  • Brent Yen

    I think he is very angry on how Scott runs the team.

  • MoominFloren

    Same here!

  • Brent Yen

    word

  • Alaingrvis

    think god lin was taken out. he was doing nothing anyways

  • joyce ward

    He needs to get over that , and just play. I hate when he goes into these sulking moods. He did this a lot in Houston before he realized that he had to fend for himself.

  • blubell

    He’s not accustomed to losing… this baad

  • Brent Yen

    Warriors are only giving Kobe single coverage, knowing his pride will make him taking the shot every time. They deny the ball to Lin and putting both bigs at elbow to stop Lin.

  • sport

    That’s why I kept saying Lin needs to shoot more off dribble shots! If Johnson, Boozer, and Hill can chuck misses like it’s nothing he should too! It’s not like the team will win if he doesn’t miss!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    More so that he is wide open and ball never gets back to him.

  • Alaingrvis

    again excuses. the offense don’t baby him. but so what. make the coaches call your number stop waiting.

  • Brent Yen

    Well, I agree, but he is human. LOL

  • GoodDayLA

    For those a bit perhaps more cynical or perhaps looking ahead, the future will be ok for Lin. I suspect he will get that low ball offer from the Spurs this summer and completely outperform his next contract with them being a super sub.

    If he is lucky around 30, he may end up starting for them or when tony Parker is hurt and out and look brilliant doing it.

    I will be very disappointed with Lin if he resign with the lakers. Unless something insane happens between now and end of seasons

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yep and they keep an eye to JLin only when he dribbles the ball up. That’s the only time they have to be wary of him. It’s so easy to guide JLin as they know once JLin passes out the ball, he won’t be a threat anymore for his own teammates will do the job for them.

  • Brent Yen

    Darn, you are predicting things in summer.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    what ever with next year. today lin played terrible.

  • GoodDayLA

    Just being realistic 🙁

  • roberlin

    looking too far ahead, dude.

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    LOL….

  • David Kim

    Lakers should bench Hill or Boozer because they got no D in the paint and they can not run PNR with Lin. They can do only PnPop. Lakers should start Davis and run tons of PNRs if they want to win.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    There’s no lowball as long as you’re playing for Spurs, especially if they win back-to-back this year.

  • Rick Johnson

    Looked to me like once Lin passes the ball Curry is way off Lin at the top of the key as he knows ball not going back to Lin.

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    Why is a Spurs diva tweeting on behalf of Jeremy?!?!

  • Alaingrvis

    it means nothing. lin can go on a run and average 22 from now on. i will only talk about today and today he look very passive

  • Brent Yen

    I think he is on the breaking point on watching Kobe just jacking shots after shots.

  • GoodDayLA

    Well I mean I tjink Lin in is a 8 mill per players but maybe they only have 3 mill per to offer under the cap

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yep they learn to clog the lane. That is the only threat left for JLin to attack. 3 pts never been an issue for he won’t get the ball back anyway.

  • Foodcoma210

    Wow Kobe shoots so much, I just don’t even know what to say. It’s like watching Kobe vs Warriors. I don’t even remember Melo dominating the ball this much.

  • KL

    Seriously, Kobe, what is the point of scoring so much on a complete blow out?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yep this game Kobe is just want to prove all his critics wrong that he sucks badly last game. Hero balls throughout.

  • blubell
  • golfhacker

    Just imagine if the Warriors didn’t play last night.

  • GoodDayLA

    I will not argue with you. I just see where the season is going already and I belive I have a good feel for lins mentality. It is what is is. If Lin signs with the Spurs I will still be a fan. He gets a free pass for whatever happens in la.

  • Foodcoma210

    Lol

  • sport

    I’m checking out of this game. Really disappointed with Lin’s game lately especially today. Whatever it is that is off, I hope he gets back to his old self scoring 20+ points soon.

  • Briiick

    They didn’t even let Lin get the ball easily in the backcourt. Yeah the unsung strategy of letting Kobe score happily to the losing land not only has been used by opponents for several seasons, but also is being adopted by lakers, for tanking.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL even Kobe’s huge media fan has enough of this.

  • Peter Truong From Riverside CA

    Maybe Lin is asking for a trade by not shooting?

  • joyce ward

    This was Kobe’s big game just like MJ that he played when he a viral illness

  • CaliUSMC

    Let me guess Lin has a towel over his head on the bench looking sad?

  • MoominFloren

    A big loss game indeed

  • roberlin

    no.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He has towel on his shoulders

  • blubell
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I am if he isn’t.

  • sport

    “If” but they don’t want to win! If Lakers don’t fire Scott it’s obvious they want to tank!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Respect to this guy. The yeller I mean.

  • blubell
  • TTNN

    Kobe three quarters, already 30 min.

  • blubell
  • TTNN

    Do we have SF sub? Is that Kobe? They are not playing Henry…..

  • blubell
  • sport

    With the way Lin plays, Spurs would be the best place for his brand of basketball but he’d be coming off the bench behind Parker. And he certainly doesn’t look happy being a bench player.

  • Alaingrvis

    if you are nostradamus why watch the games

  • Briiick

    When I play a pickup game, I only have fun scoring, don’t care if the opponent score more.

  • roberlin

    You know, it’s a huge myth on Lin bashers’ part that real Lin fans aren’t objective about Lin. People here have been very honest about how poorly Lin has played this game.

    The difference is that posters here don’t spew vitriolic contempt towards Lin when he struggles. I appreciate that greatly. Coz I’m sure it’s super ugly at the big site right now.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I don’t know what is Byron trying to be fancy about, but they could have easily picked up this game by playing damned basic sets (which a lot of NBA coaches are allergic to but the champions are very efficient at)

  • blubell
  • sport

    Most fun about basketball is scoring yet Lin hasn’t been attempting any shots this game nor enough in past games! He needs to take at least 12 FGAs.

  • TTNN

    looks like Lin is done for today?

  • Brent Yen

    yep

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He’s struggling.Good idea to sit him… for now

  • Brent Yen

    garbage time, no one will play starters.

  • Briiick

    Lin cares but Kobe doesn’t, that is the problem.

  • sport

    Scott’s so called defensive coaching is all BS!

  • TTNN

    I thought Byron look at defense, not offense. But anyway, he said a lot of things and never count.

  • CaliUSMC

    I can only imagine… I’m so glad this site was created.

  • Alaingrvis

    its was bad .its painful watching. alt ought the team is worse then him today. the bigs why are they starting.but still lin has to be better. if scott keeps the same lineup or the same scheme. i officially give up on the team

  • blubell
  • Barry Allen

    Except the Rockets.

  • sport

    Except MJ won that game and Kobe loss this one! Nothing to rave about nor would anyone care! Kobe wants to surpass MJ but he can’t even surpass Duncan who has more final awards! Watching Duncan get his 6 ring with his Legacy being bigger than Kobe the ball hog!

  • Brent Yen

    So GSW doubled Kobe because Lin is not on the floor. Kobe TOV…I guess everyone knows LAL will lose every game if KOBE is taking shots…

  • GoodDayLA

    Like everyone here, I have hope. Maybe delusional but I hope too

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    And Scott-Kobe

  • Barry Allen

    Well there are also a lot of trolls in the mix there. They come out of the woodwork every time Lin has a bad game.

  • CaliUSMC

    what a f***er

  • roberlin

    league source is byron scott, lol.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya!… don’t believe that.. smh!

  • TTNN

    wow…..

  • Alaingrvis

    so lin finishes with 0 points wow the worse game from him

  • roberlin

    Nah, those are just drive by spammers. The worst trolls have been at the site for a long time. Imo. Lol.

  • Brent Yen

    There will be game that are even worse….do worry about it

  • IsabeliJane*17

    It’s either this: Byron is really NOT looking at the defense or the team, specifically the bigs, cannot really execute the defensive strategies.

  • Brent Yen

    I don see the strategies so far…

  • now that’s a real Lakers fan!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That too. should have stuck with the basics of defense.

  • GoodDayLA

    You read my mind

  • Barry Allen

    -Statline-

    Boozer: 3-13 (23%)
    Johnson: 3-11 (27%)
    Bryant: 13-30 (43%)

    Result: Lakers blown out of the water.

  • sws94

    This is a nightmare for Lin and his fans. We’ll just have to hope next game he comes out and plays well in all facets. He really needs a hot shooting game and big-scoring game. But he has to do better against Curry. He has to get angry tonight and hate how Curry totally outclassed him tonight, friend or not, and make sure this doesn’t happen again when they next play against each other.

  • Alaingrvis

    hahahahahahaha nah doubt that. i blame him for this game. but still those bigs hill and boozer are not starter in the nba. we would still be blown out no matter what

  • Barry Allen

    -10 points?

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    true

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers!

    If the game is bad it’s fun looking at the game attendees.

  • Brent Yen

    I think one tweet is enough. Not really need a video.

  • Barry Allen

    It doesn’t even deserve any videos. Terrible game.

  • golfhacker

    Can he shoot?

  • Rick Johnson
  • MoominFloren

    Don’t spend time on video at all for game like this

  • cali7

    I cant watch the game. What happened to Lin early on? I skimmed through comments but this type of performance is unexpected from Lin for me.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Not sure. Give him his bass and we’ll see from there.

  • Alaingrvis

    doubt it

  • yeah, that’s true. Or 2 min video would be enough.

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    He just did a few good D….took 2 shots…..watching KOBE shoot. Just like in practice.

  • Barry Allen

    Who cares at that point? So you sacrifice the team for your own scoring? Lame.

  • MoominFloren

    That means we are going to see 20 more games like this…..totally intolerable

  • cali7

    Thanks. Kobe show again. Still Lin is able to get something in before. 2 fga… yikes

  • Brent Yen

    He could only play 15- minutes. 0 ast..get injured..etc.

  • Lakers is behind 32 pts. Will Lin even get back in the game?

  • Brent Yen

    I think that is the case

  • roberlin

    no, i think the starters are done. Maybe.

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t think so… even I do wish.

  • Brent Yen

    He should not have

  • CaliUSMC

    I think ti’m the only one that picked 12/5 or lower. That’s two in a row 😀

  • TTNN

    don’t think so.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Don’t even believe that. He will play like this until his time to retire. Now I can understand 1000% why no decent player wants to got to Lakers. If JLin struggles like this, can’t imagine other “selfish” players can play in Lakers.

  • blubell
  • Rick Johnson

    Feel sorry for them traveling all the way for this garbage.

    https://twitter.com/LisaTarng/status/534171369936670720?s=09

  • sport

    I thin Lin’s feed up with this team and Kobe chucking all the shots away.

  • CaliUSMC

    You are the 1st post twitter queen

  • Brent Yen

    agreed

  • Lin 22 min 0 pts/1ast/2reb (0-2FG)
    Price 23 min 0 pts/2ast/1reb (0-1FG)

    7 min left. At least, there might not be PG controversy if this stays

  • sport

    That would explain why he doesn’t have any energy on the court and refuses to shoot.

  • blubell

    I’m not even watching the game anymore…

  • Brent Yen

    Lol

  • CaliUSMC

    I stopped at halftime. Looks like I didn’t miss much.

  • Brent Yen

    We will never know….

  • blubell

    Point guards without points. Not even a point. LOL

  • Love Lin

    thx god..consolable at least..

  • TTNN

    there is still 6:30 min left

  • Alaingrvis

    the offense scheme has to go or the player have to be benched or fire scott. anyone would be nice. hill can’t shoot a mid shot. boozer is inefficient as well is terrible defensively. wes is terrible. kobe is taking ton of shots and never pass. something has to change i have no more patience. its one thing watching a good team have no offensive set like the rox last year. but to watch a team play a set they clearly have the wrong personnel for is painful

  • Another positive is TWCSN will stop with the discrepancy of Lin’s Home vs Road performance.

  • cali7

    Curry alone has more assists than the entire lakers at this moment. Wow

  • blubell

    LOL. Yup.

  • TTNN

    Feel sorry to those Lin Fans fly all the way from TW. Those two little twins who dance with Lin too. They are in the center today.

  • I’m sure Price will stat-pad

  • Brent Yen

    LOL that is true. But this Lin has to step up non sense will come back.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol he is just crap all the time the stats now show

  • Dominique Jones

    Free Lin?

    @Lakers_Examiner rumor has it there's a Lin-MCW swap in talks. hope they package w/ J Hill for Embiid or McDaniels.— Abdlftth Mac (@thatguyftth) November 17, 2014

  • blubell
  • sport

    I don’t even think Price “can” stat pad he’s that bad! If it was Clarkson maybe.

  • Barry Allen

    Actually I would rather him play less minutes with these stats. More minutes means he’s on the floor and not doing much offensively.

  • Brent Yen

    To 76ers? m….even worse

  • roberlin

    What is the Laker’s Examiner?

  • blubell
  • MoominFloren

    LOL. Really like your attitude haha

  • TTNN

    that trade don’t make any sense. why 76er want to do that? They did not get Lin from Rockets, and Lakers has less assets to give out.

  • Carol Tiu

    suspected as much.

  • Alaingrvis

    doubt it

  • disqus_SQCpG43HSy

    been going to the other jlin fan site since feb 2012, now there is just not fun to catch up with Lin games. People pretend to be Jeremy’s fan but everything they said are negative toward Jeremy..smh. Feel sorry for them.

  • roberlin

    When are the post-game interviews going to start? Games been over for quite a while, lol.

  • GoodDayLA

    Lol we are suckers for punishment. Lin is being a bit too passive not in not shooting but fighting for himself imho. Just a bit.

    If he resigns for this crap next season even if it’s the only offer, I will not follow anymore

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • Brent Yen

    You only made 1 comment over this 3 yrs…

  • LW

    Starters, non starters are the same for Lakers right now.

  • blubell
  • Dominique Jones

    Tweet above is in response to Ryan Ward:

    The real question is when does the serious trade talk begin? Kobe isn’t going anywhere, but I wouldn’t say the same about J. Lin or J. Hill.— Ryan Ward (@Lakers_Examiner) November 17, 2014

  • blubell

    It is that baaaad. LOL

  • Briiick

    Scott has stopped pretending to coach kobe’s team.

  • well, it’s a bad game and Lin will take it hard on himself like usual :[
    Might as well hope this will be a wake-up call for Lin for the next few games :>

  • David Kim

    This game is one of the worst I’ve ever seen. So boring….much worse than the houston games..

  • Rick Johnson

    One more Price foul and Lin will have to do garbage time.

  • Barry Allen

    lol.

    Another flagrant?

  • cheapjing

    lol. maybe lin is sick. what a jab at kobe

  • disqus_SQCpG43HSy

    I never sign up on the other site, but I been reading your guys comment there for over 2 years :)….almost every day during the season and slightly less during off season

  • Brent Yen

    wut? 5 already?

  • ok, 3 min left. Guess what Price will end up with how many points? Still 0 now

  • Brent Yen

    welcome!

  • Brent Yen

    He will get 5

  • Barry Allen
  • golfhacker

    I just want to watch a competitive game…when do we play the Sixers?

  • MoominFloren

    Jeremy doesn’t need any wake up call. BS does. Kobe does. And the rest of the stationary defense teammates do need it.

  • 7iger

    Are the warriors going 150pts?

  • Brent Yen

    They will be competitive playing with slower teams.

  • Guest

    Disagree.

  • Barry Allen

    It will be like that fixed boxing match when both boxers punch themselves in the head for a double knockout.

  • GoodDayLA

    Dreams…

  • GoodDayLA

    Alain scares me, always has always will. Like republican and democrat when there use to be a difference

  • Barry Allen

    Kobe: “Sorry I can’t refund the 2 hours of your life back, but on the bright side I’ve almost got the scoring record.”

  • GoodDayLA

    Kobe will hog all year. Dave is wrong it will stop

  • disqus_SQCpG43HSy

    Thanks Brent, I could tell almost all the regular posters over there came here, glad to see you guys all here

  • I’ll say 3

  • cheapjing

    i love the 1% result

  • GoodDayLA

    You refuse to acknowledge the tank! Also this is Kobes team. Cannot allow Lin to shine over Kobe

  • Alaingrvis

    ofcourse i do as well just the stats will show that

  • Brent Yen

    maybe 0.5 LOL

  • disqus_SQCpG43HSy

    Biggest disappointment tonight, couldn’t see Kobe make 40 shots and lakers lost by 30 lol

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    34 shot attempts? How sick and selfish SOB.

  • Brent Yen

    I am not watching. What is the score right now?

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    i will start calling for scott to be fired if he don’t change something. either the starters or the scheme choose one change it or both which is better.

  • spiderman

    I encourage them to go to another fan site, but they stick around and come back ESPECIALLY in the not so good games

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    If he played 5 more min to be 36 total.

  • Guest

    I know you do, if you don’t, then I wouldn’t disagree.

  • disqus_SQCpG43HSy

    136 to 112. But all the starters sat out almost the entire 4th qt

  • Briiick

    Plus 16 fts

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I don’t acknowledge the tank because the last time I checked, I’m not working for FO. Assuming on the FO’s decision is laughable. Assuming this as a tank immediately is like criticizing the same FO who traded for Jeremy.

  • Personally, I think Lin also needs to get some points on the scoreboard for his stats or force to shoot more. Also be good for the Taiwanese fans who came a long way.

  • cheapjing

    dang, price for 2 points and 5 assists

  • blubell
  • GoodDayLA

    I thinks in San antinio, Lin be ok with it

  • Briiick

    Plus 16 fts, all in 3 quarters.

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    SMH.

  • Love Lin

    is he dozing off? man.. lol

  • IsabeliJane*17

    The scheme should change. One significant change: reel Kobe in.

  • cheapjing

    is he sick, kobe’s flu is contagious preheps?

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • CJSHYY

    Haha! He just couldn’t help it… the game it’s so boring to watch..smh!

  • roberlin

    I feel ya, Jack.

  • There’s no point to have a Post-Game thread.
    We should skip to have an ATL PreGame thread tomorrow

  • Brent Yen

    Not sure what the offers will be……but maybe he will leave b4 the season ends?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    This is ok actually.

  • BobbyH

    If that makes you feel better, the points are against the bench.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    It wasn’t bored to watch, It was tortured.

  • Alaingrvis

    defense first. the blow outs or team not scoring makes kobe more incline to force shots

  • Brent Yen

    Actually, we may just have a season thread. And delete all the repeating comments about how passive Lin was or how bad the team was ran or how KOBE is aiming for the scoring title.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Thanks for informing.

  • JT

    terrible body language for lin, looks like houston again

  • yeah.. not a good night for Lin and his fans
    But hopefully he will come back strong on Tue like we know he could!

  • Alaingrvis

    yea this game wiped from my memory bank. the sooner the better

  • roberlin

    It’s not just the losing that sucks, but that the Laker’s offensive offense does a terrific job of neutralizing Lin’s ability to make an impact on the game like we know he’s capable of doing.

    We know Lin can still make his teammates around him better. He hasn’t lost that skill. It’s just sucked dry by the Kobe dominated offensive non-schemes.

  • Alaingrvis

    they suck as a team so what else do you expect

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I noticed the same.

  • 7iger

    I stop watching after 1st half. Got a glance on late 3rd qtr and didn’t see Lin so I only check box score after.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Hope they will trade Lin.

  • GoodDayLA

    It’s intentional by the lakers. They just got Lin to fill seats for the season…sigh.

  • Carol Tiu

    As early as 2nd qtr? Wow.

  • kassiek

    good idea!

  • blubell

    Jeremy’s pre-game interview.

  • Alaingrvis

    well the whole scheme is messed up. it goes to boozer and hill who both can’t pass and run down time. if lin gets to the paint the bigs don’t follow for a ally op or rebound and score they wait at the free throw line to shoot and miss on a consistant bases. the bigs have to be benched id take anyone at this point. anyone

  • Brent Yen

    So…
    The whole team sucks so Lin is sulking.
    The offense sucks where Lin is not used right so Lin is sulking.
    The deffse sucks where when Lin try his best, some bigs will just easily let their man to score. so Lin is sulking.

    I guess it is too much for a competitive player to take

  • Alaingrvis

    kobe will fill the seats they didn’t get lin for that

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I therefore conclude Jeremy is sulking.

  • roberlin

    So when was Lin sulking?

  • JC

    so it is safe to say, Lakers is tanking but will let Kobe get scoring title

  • Barry Allen

    He can’t handle the truth.

  • Alaingrvis

    nope

  • John Lee

    At least that’ll be something interesting, and it’s one thing he does better than Lin.

  • Brent Yen

    I am just joking. I mean, maybe he is not happy…but past few games, he played great

  • Briiick

    I am beginning to doubt it.

  • we’ll be left with only “Fire BScott” comments in that thread 🙂

  • jolno

    It’s safer to say Lakers is tanking by letting Kobe get scoring title.

  • Love Lin

    Gosh.. another ugly game.. 🙁 when do the Lakers hv a sweet victory? Ive become doubt if Scott is suitable 4 his coaching position, gotta do smthing. Fans dont wanna hv losing streak, the confidence among players will be broken down..

  • Brent Yen

    or it is safe to say Kobe will not let team run offense until he gets it

  • blubell

    I can say the same regarding your “coaching”
    https://twitter.com/SerenaWinters/status/534211112993300480

  • JC

    very true, i got to go watch some spurs game before i got lost what an NBA game suppose to look like

  • Alaingrvis

    good post. honestly lin and kobe are the only players who can sttill start in the nba. the other three would not start.

  • LW

    If Lin can come out strong tonight then why didn’t he? If Lin couldn’t do anything tonight then why would it be different on Tue with the same setup?

  • Briiick

    It’s safer to say lakers have been out sourced to Kobe for two seasons.

  • Brent Yen

    Hill taks 9m a yr…….he has to able to

  • 7iger

    Yeah, BS fans patience are running thin.

  • Alaingrvis

    did the game end yet i stop watching at the 8 min mark

  • blubell
  • Barry Allen

    Running thin? Already? Poor fella.

    That’s like someone holding up a sign saying “The End is Nigh!” after the world has already ended.

  • karen sy

    too early for a #tbt

  • Alaingrvis

    lol no way you see his defense. also this guy can’t make midrange shots at all

  • John Lee

    Obviously, and it shows!

  • roberlin

    Getting players involved on offense will energize them and get them playing with more energy on defense. Bad offense (Kobe-centric) is related to bad defense.

  • kassiek

    not yet started

  • I think Lin (22 min) and Price (31 min) were playing pure point-guard today to set up their teammates.
    A combined 0-5 for 2 pts.

    They didn’t look to score unless the opportunity presented themselves.
    I wonder if there will be mutiny by Kobe’s teammates soon.

  • Barry Allen

    No wonder they were racking up those assists.

  • jolno

    This reminds me of a well-known phrase “the ball is sticky”.

  • Alaingrvis

    playing defense would help more the defense kills any rhythm they have but yea no more mid range shot would rather lin take those shots

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    He is joking, right?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Not sure Lin is sulking as some fans say so. See him that JLin just can’t do much with GS pressed him for taking the ball up. They know this is the only time JLin is the threat. When they pressed enough, JLin would pass on to others. Once the ball is out of his hand, he will never see the ball again. So non threat from thereon. Another easy way for them to take JLin is out is make sure one guy guide him and 4 clogs the paint. To take away JLin penetration. That’s why JLin is so ineffective because no Lakers starters help him out at all. Another thing is they know KOBE ball won’t win a game. JLin is THE ONLY threat and they make sure he isn’t a threat esp KOBE, BS and his teammates play a major hand in this. SO EASY to defend Lakers.

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    LOL, ok….

  • David Kim

    Send Scott to Dfenders .

  • Alaingrvis

    lin was passive today real clear to me. but the scheme is terrible. the bigs can’t shoot. all hills shot should be lay ups. also hated the pass to davis at the ft line. why thats to far for him.

  • JC

    is there actually anyone calling Kobe a ‘hero’ for trying to carry his team to a WIN?

  • 1 assist for Lin playing with starters
    5 assists for Price playing mostly with bench.

    Didn’t look good but they tried.
    Note: IMO Lin should have score more for himself but for whatever reasons he didn’t

  • blubell
  • John Lee

    A pot calling chalk black. If anyone, Mitch made bad decision hiring BS.

  • kassiek

    Coaching is overrated

  • BobbyH

    Bad decisions not to shoot? Or bad decisions to keep passing to bigs?

  • Brent Yen

    I say he is just stubborn…

  • joyce ward

    Get over it Lin is sulking, because they are not playing the way he thinks they should play, so doesn’t try to so anything on offense. You have Bigs that are terrible, then he needs to figure it out to do what he needs to do to get the win. These bigs are not going to get any better, because they don’t have the grasp of the game. Perhaps lin is better coming off the bench,, because as a starter you have to bring it every night whether you are feeling it or not. Perhaps he needs to lead the bench because nothing is going to change for him in this Laker’s lineup. I will not watch the laker’s games coming up because I am so disappointed in how he performed tonight.

  • 717

    To those who keep invoking the tanking theory: it’s sufficient to lose each game by a single point. You don’t get extra draft picks for ugly, boring, blowouts.

  • Barry Allen

    probably not a hero. maybe the opposite of a hero.

    a joker.

  • roberlin

    what bad decisions? Lin didn’t do much that required real decision-making. WTH is Scott talking about?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    If I’m going to pull some crazy, conspiracy theory act, I’d say Jeremy is sulking because he expected that at least his team will play team ball against Warriors after seeing and being schooled to embarrassment by that beautiful team ball by the Spurs.

  • webattorney

    Wow, a clearly negative comment. I guess he’s talking about TOs.

  • Brent Yen

    Why are you insulting a joker…

  • LW

    Yeah, those are really bad decisions!

  • blubell

    Words of a desperate man?

  • 7iger

    Hmm.. did he hints something? 🙂

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Well the original Joker was watching the game.. so.. hehehe

  • Barry Allen

    ‘it’s all part of the plan’

    tank!

  • John Lee

    Precisely. At least the Joker took crime very seriously.

  • Barry Allen

    lol

  • Alaingrvis

    his bad choices was when to shoot or pass. his pg skills was bad today. didn’t lead the offense. I’m guessing thats what he meant

  • blubell

    Sitting courtside 🙂

  • Barry Allen

    ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?

  • JC

    they just need someone to be a scapegoat for purposely tanking, Kobe can’t be that someone so….

  • No doubt the bigs were responsible for letting GSW scored easily in the 1st quarter.

    I took a snapshot of the Shot Chart in the 1st quarter when LAL trailed 12-20 quickly.
    7 makes and 2 misses in the paint. Just layup after layup

    Here was the tweet and the shotchart

    https://twitter.com/JLinPortal/status/534177632191909888

  • Brent Yen

    Because the opponents are different

  • CaliUSMC

    Wow

  • Brent Yen

    M…interesting

  • Alaingrvis

    they all played bad i don’t remove blame from lin

  • blubell

    LOL. didn’t notice it til now but liked hearing Boozer shouting JLIN in the background.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    When Andrew Bogut becomes an offensive threat, well…..

  • joyce ward

    He needs to stop sulking and get over it. If he can’t then he needs to off the bench. I personally am beginning to believe that lin does not have the mindset to be a starter in this league, then that’s fine. I just want him to play his game.

  • JC

    lol

  • 717

    What about Scott’s own decisions?

  • jolno

    Interesting remark from someone who’s fully behind all of Kobe’s “good decisions” such as bricking shots left and right, leaving his man wide open for threes, playing when he’s not supposed to, etc. BS has shown his true color.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    NOP he is throwing JLIN under the bus.

  • Alaingrvis

    over reaction. the lakers have a ton of issue. lin passiveness is one but not the top issues. he had this issue once since 6 games and back to wether lin is a starter.relax

  • blubell
  • let’s hear what he has to say in the post-game interview.
    For all we know, Kobe might pass the virus, not the ball to him.
    But I agree Lin should have shot more. (2FG is very uncharacteristic even for Lin)
    I’m waiting to hear more from him

  • Brent Yen

    If it is like what you said, he should not play in NBA at all. Because bench is not that much different.

  • David Kim

    League source suggested to me Kobe is making sure he passes MJ in career points while he’s healthy & once he does will settle into team ball
    11:26pm – 16 Nov 14

    -Dave McMenamins

    Lol

  • kassiek

    He said he does not care abt the offense. So.. Is he trying to say Lin cannot make the bigs play defense?

  • Barry Allen

    Translation: “If you’re going to tank and you don’t make someone else a scapegoat. You’ll be the scapegoat.”

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    BS is throwing JLIN under the bus just like M.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He has a starter AND team first mentality. The problem is after the Knicks he landed on superstar-concentrated “teams” which negated it greatly.

  • BobbyH

    Usually in most of the games, before receiving the inbound ball from the teammate after the opponents scored, Lin would bouncing up and down waiting for the ball. Tonight he didn’t bother to do that. He didn’t even try to chase S Curry hard in the 2nd half.

  • joyce ward

    Going to come off the bench talk.Good then lin can play his game. Lin has been in this game long enough to know that he has to play better than anybody else. There are no free rides for him, so he needs to stop sulking and play this game.

  • blubell
  • Carol Tiu

    i hope he’s not referring to JLin.

  • blubell
  • spiderman
  • Alaingrvis

    i don’t think thats it either. lin didn’t have the skill to play with melo but this year he does. the lakers just suck. on rox they had a lot of bal handlers lin was the 4 to 5th option. the lakers just have bench players starting

  • Dominique Jones

    LOL. It starts at the top.

  • spiderman

    called out Byron Scott

  • I believe Kobe is only 317pts behind MJ now.

    I’ll say the Lakers should make a pact to give Kobe 80pts/game for the next 4 games to get this record out of the way.
    Then play team-ball!

    Sweet Deal! 😀

  • Brent Yen
  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • joyce ward

    Lin faced this same problem in Houston, but he found a way to work around it. Not buying it. Lin was clearly sulking tonight.

  • Brent Yen

    THis team is collapsing #shotsfired

  • Barry Allen

    or they should just play team ball every game and Kobe should get his points the right way.

  • blubell
  • Carol Tiu

    Suck in all his bad coaching; no other ways about it.

  • Alaingrvis

    one way to figure it out bench the bigs and lets see what happens

  • roberlin

    I’ve been withholding any judgment of Scott until I saw more games, but I think right now, he’s a terrible coach, not because of x’s and o’s, but because of his complete inability to control Kobe.

    We all know that the biggest problem on the team is Kobe, but, BS keeps focusing on other aspects of the team instead of the big fat elephant in the room.

    To defend Scott a little, NO coach could control Kobe except Phil Jackson. But, it seems Scott is even more permissive of Kobe than other Laker coaches, not even daring to challenge Kobe to be a better team player and teammate.

    Right now, the team has no coach, they just have a player who gets to do whatever he wants, and everyone else having to act an react knowing that fact.

    Imo. Lol.

  • Alaingrvis

    do it now boozer and hill out wes as well

  • JC

    you can’t improve the team that much just by changing the assistant coach while the head coach(kobe) is still there doing 1 vs 5 hero ball!!!

  • Barry Allen

    “This zombie is chewing on my shoulder, I’m close to moving away from it.”

  • Brent Yen

    I think he just meant he will move Lin to bench, since Kobe is not movable

  • spiderman

    lol. about time

  • Alaingrvis

    lol that would be funny

  • Barry Allen

    the blame game begins

  • kassiek

    wowwowwow thats funny!!! Say sth more boozer!

  • Alaingrvis

    the bench would be the better unit lin young and davis

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Not knocking out Andrew Bogut, but if he becomes an offensive threat in a game, well the problem is glaring obvious.

  • blubell
  • John Lee

    There’s no I in team, but there sure is ME!

  • roberlin

    Maybe, but there are other more likely targets – Wes Johnson, Jordan Hill, for example.

  • PPP

    They may want to get rid of mcw for lin + picks but rockets cant afford to take back any contract at that time, just my guess

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Move Jeremy to the bench and let J-Ed PnR all day.

  • Alaingrvis

    im guessing boozer will be bench soon and won’t play much. hill will be questionable

  • Barry Allen

    i’m glad he was just as critical of Kobe’s 1-14 last game…… oh wait. he wasn’t

  • joyce ward

    I hope lin moves to the bench, then he can play his game, I think that is what Scott wanted all along. He wanted lin to run the second unit to help develop Randle/Clarkson. When Clark got hurt he had to regroup. He knows that Kobe/Hill/Boozer will not get it done., and that the second unit of lin/davis/ Clarkson/henry/young will be the Lakers of the future and they would be the ones winning the game after 1st unit fades out.

  • John Lee

    Nothing left to be said if no one wishes to talk about neon pink elephant in the room.

  • spiderman

    Scott is SLOW

  • roberlin

    Hmmm. .. I wonder who Boozer might be referring to . . . I think the others who aren’t giving their full effort . . . his name rhymes with adobe.

  • I think they tried that already for 10 games.
    If they’re gonna lose 15 more games, might as well speed it up in 4 games

  • 717

    I agree with you but I think expecting Scott to control Kobe is as hopeless as asking Lin to dominate Kobe.

  • spiderman

    point well taken

  • jolno

    Nick Young would be back next game though, and Nick grew up in LA idolizing Kobe lol.

  • Briiick

    Ball hogs know that if they score a lot, they are not blamed for losing—-that is teammates’ fault. That’s why you need a coach to prevent this.

  • I submitted my proposal to Dave McMenamin (Laker reporter before he moved to cover LBJ)
    I hope he agrees.

    https://twitter.com/JLinPortal/status/534217028257595393

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Kelly? lol

  • JC

    上梁不正下梁歪,everything got to start with the cornerstone

  • Carol Tiu

    If he’s gonna move JLin to the bench, I hope he doesn’t move these two along with him, or vice versa.

  • Brent Yen

    I am not sure he cares…

  • spiderman

    Swaggy?

  • yup.. we definitely saw Bogut’s layup highlights

  • BuzzerBeater

    Now watch him move Jeremy to the bench and start Ed Davis >_<

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Move Young as SG and let Kobe make plays..or whatever something like that.

  • spiderman

    Scott’s BIG change : start Price

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    Henry?

  • roberlin

    317 points – if Kobe continues to average 27 ppg, how many games will it take for Kobe to get to 317 points? Someone do the math please!

  • Briiick

    Look who is blaming the coach?

  • Carol Tiu

    He’s not gonna take the blame sitting down.

  • joyce ward

    He won’t start Davis over Hill. He wanted Lin with the bench all along. Lin just played into his hands with this game.

  • CJSHYY

    Not from his post game interview? I guess they probably will not let him do it since everyone can tell Lin is not happy…

  • JC

    12 i guess

  • spiderman

    great idea!!

  • roberlin

    those games can’t come soon enough.

  • John Lee

    Coach, Kobe and bigs.

  • Barry Allen
  • IsabeliJane*17

    This is BETTER actually. Have him as a ballboy for Kobe.

  • Carol Tiu

    Get it over and done with.

  • John Lee

    Lakers 1-21, then teamball?

  • BuzzerBeater

    whoa lol you rarely hear players blatantly call out the coaches like this.

  • 717

    Kobe be breakin’ all kinds of records.

  • True. By not admitting the real problem, Byron showed bad leadership since they will not be able to fix the root cause of the problem, Kobe ISOs.

    Even Worthy was exasperated and had to say it during half-time.
    Horry simply was afraid to follow Worthy and only blamed Lakers D

    Lakers might implode soon

  • roberlin

    maybe 2-20. Or, being optmistic, perhaps 3-19. lol.

  • blubell

    BScott post game

  • cheapjing

    i dont understand bs, how can his patient is only running thin instead of running out.

    please do some line up changes already. hope he wont move davis to the starting lineup but lin to the bench

  • PPP

    Whoa

  • JT

    “trust”, that is really concerning..same with “effort”, looks like some of his teammates are cancers smh, I was hoping for some change from Houston, but starting to look the same

  • John Lee

    It’s really sad when 3-19 is being optimistic.

  • JC

    i doubt it, in between those games there are going to be more kobrick ones 1 for 14, 9pts

  • roberlin

    move Lin to the bench so he can play only 20 minutes a game? I don’t know about that.

  • Brent Yen

    Line up changes do not change their lack of cohesion and lack of effort

  • cheapjing

    just move hill and wes

  • Brent Yen

    exactly

  • Gotta stop the slow bleeding and took it out the thorn quickly.
    Then start the healing process to regain the full use of the Lakers body parts 😀

  • sport

    Comments are too overloaded on the other site and it’s harder to see Lin updates.

  • cheapjing

    true, but a change of attitude could help.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Maybe 2 men game — Kobe and Young in starters????

  • Brent Yen

    No one is happy…except Kobe

  • Alaingrvis

    yea with boozer. its amazing how much i miss dwight. he was in the paint at all times. no easy layups. with hill he is never in the paint.iv never seen a center who love playing away from the rim more then hill

  • PPP

    One game?

  • Brent Yen

    Nah….if Scott is incapable of making Lin and Kobe work, he is incapable of making it work period.

  • I’ll say BS will have more headache if he moves Lin to the bench but Lin/Davis explodes.
    Critics will say why he didn’t do it in the 1st place. *sigh*

  • blubell

    Jeremy’s post game interview – very frustrated Jeremy.

  • joyce ward

    I have a new respect for Boozer…You go Boozer

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    11-12 games the max. Maybe less if he shoots at least 40 and gets there quicker but I seriously he will stop there. Leopard just can’t change its spot.

  • cheapjing

    lol, true

  • jolno

    Lin is maybe a little bit too candid here. This could lead to collective freeze-out by his teammates… Wait, they already froze him out so never-mind.

  • CaliUSMC

    Robert Horry is the TRUTH

  • woohoo. maybe we can vote on which 2 games they will win LOL

  • roberlin

    Lin to the bench is not a good option. First of all, to lose your job to RONNIE PRICE??? Unacceptable.

    Lin is the best player on the team. You don’t put your best player on the team on the second unit.

    And the BS about shorting up the second unit is a BS argument. The problem is that the starting unit needs shoring up first! And you can’t do that with Lin playing 18-20 minutes playing with second stringers.

  • BuzzerBeater

    This was a nightmare.
    I need Jeremy back on the bench. That starting unit is an eyesore.

    2nd unit: Jeremy-Ellington-Swaggy-Kelly-Davis, they’d actually run and be fun to watch.
    Of course the Lakers will still lose all the games cuz the starters will fall behind by 20 points in the 1stQ but I dont even care about that. I just want Jeremy to play alongside players that actually fit his style.

  • CaliUSMC

    shots fiREd

  • spiderman

    Serena’s gorgeous

  • cheapjing

    better than losing 2-20.

  • John Lee

    Which is why he might move Price AND Davis into starters after Boozer’s insolent comment do insubordination.

  • blubell

    “deep rooted issue” is right.

  • CaliUSMC

    Klay Thompsons girl is gorgeous

  • spiderman

    who dat

  • Alaingrvis

    wes is long should start if not wes can’t finish games or 2nd quarter

  • roberlin

    No, it’s the other way around. If Lin plays better with those guys, then some of those guys need to move into the starting line-up.

    Lin to the bench is just not a very good option for the team or for JLin.

  • Love Lin

    I dont even hv courage 2 watch his post game.. its been pretty sad 2 see his frustration lately..

  • blubell
  • CaliUSMC

    Look up Klays IG.

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    Yeah fire it man!

  • roberlin

    Not true at all!

    If things go good, it’s Kobe. If things go bad, it’s everyone else.

  • joyce ward

    Lin/Davis will play more that 20 minutes, trust me on this. Scott didn’t run any plays for lin tonight. Hi;;/Boozer are all about getting their stats. I just want lin to get a good contract next season. Kobe has one more year and he awants to be the star of this show. Lin/Kobe can play together as it was proven n that Charlotte game, and they reverted back to kobe playing all by himself.

  • John Lee

    If he only truly believed that…

  • spiderman

    Serena cuter

  • roberlin

    LOLOLOLLLLLLLLLLL.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! If Lin can’t play well next to Kobe then he will be in trouble w any team bc every team has their own big or small Kobe… He needs to figure it out how to play next to ISO star. If he can’t then he will not be able to stay in Lakers.

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • cheapjing

    poor lin

  • Brent Yen

    Who believes it? I want to do an IQ test on him

  • Alaingrvis

    didn’t see that in the interview

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Thou shalt not LIE

  • 717

    He doesn’t! He’s whining about what others say.

  • joyce ward

    Then Lin/Boozer will run the bench and win many games. Scott doesn’t have enough guts to move Boozer. He will continue with the m on the 1st unit, he will probably move lin.

  • spiderman

    Actions speak LOUDER than words

  • roberlin

    Lin to the bench is a bad, bad, bad, idea, for Lin and for the team.

    Having said that, it’s probably going to happen precisely because it makes no sense. Lol.

  • BuzzerBeater

    Yeah in a nice and fair world that’d be the case but realistically thats not gonna happen.
    Kobe will never come off the bench. The other 4 starters are just spectators to Kobe.

    I’d much rather watch Jeremy play and run with shooters and a solid PnR big with the 2nd unit then having him end up like tonight just to have bragging rights of a starter title.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

  • Alaingrvis

    a lot of people are blaming kobe so i get why he would say that. the defense is the biggest issue but when things go bad kobe sure makes it worse

  • spiderman

    As long as Lin can play quality minutes with a good (better) unit, I’m satisfied

  • Alaingrvis

    where did he call out kobe

  • Brent Yen

    According to Murphy’s law…..he will

  • PPP

    Lin seems calm and not overly sad like back in houston where he would blame himself first.
    I like it, its not totally his fault although hes part of it.

  • 717

    Why Lin is not the Lakers’ problem and Price is certainly not the solution.

  • blubell
  • sport

    Star Ed Davis already! Once their starting roles are taken away they’ll play harder to prove their worth! Ed Davis has proved more than enough and gives way more effort than those two bigs!

  • roberlin

    disagree wholeheartedly. Lin is a STARTER. Period.

  • JLinNation said Lin just called out Kobe in post-game interview but Kianainhi said he called out other players.
    Will need to watch it later

  • John Lee

    So what? Kobe has a mirror with him during a game?

  • 717

    It was subtle. Kobe was not named.

  • true, but I suspect BS priority is probably not be #1 scapegoat at the moment.

  • spiderman

    agree he’s a STARTER — but gotta look at starting with WHO? Kobe? Hill? Boozer? Wesley?

  • joyce ward

    Well then Lin needs to stop playing into their hands to bench him. He needs to play every game well. In Houston he had to fend for himself, so he nerds to work it out. Lin should know by now that it is not a level playing ground when it comes to him, so he doesn’t need to fall into the traps they set for him

  • Alaingrvis

    don’t think he did

  • IsabeliJane*17

    So let me get this straight.. Jeremy could learn to play against a heavy ISO player, by becoming an ISO player himself? hmm.. Shall I ask him to abandon his team-first mentality as early as now?

  • roberlin

    Does the head coach blame Kobe? NO. Does the front office blame Kobe? NO.

    Who blames Kobe? Internet fans who see the truth, but are completely powerless. lol.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    yea i agree with lin

  • 717

    He said it’s wrong to come into a game thinking about yourself instead of the team. But he did NOT mention Kobe specifically.

  • sport

    We keep saying those two need to be benched but Scott still hasn’t made a change to the lineup! What in the world is he waiting for?! I would seriously start Davis and Clarkson over Boozer and Johnson. I don’t know who would replace Hill but anyone who would give effort on defense, get rebounds, and play PnR would do!

  • jolno

    So instead of watching the crime Kobe decided to help the crime by further lowering the team morale by ball-hogging and blaming teammates for his own defensive shortcomings. Wonderful decisions here.

  • JC

    Kobe has at most 2 relevent years left on his aging body, so at this point him knowing lakers have no hope of winning a championship, the most important thing for him to do right now are:….

  • Riddick

    He didn’t sound calm to me. He can barely finish a sentence… almost
    like he has no words for the situation…almost like he’s about to cry.
    Pathetic team…Braynt/Scott may break him, where htown couldn’t. smh

    Mirror is only for those who might look bad. Kobe doesn’t think it’s even possible for him to look bad lol.

    the teams defense make kobe panic and take over the game the defense is our biggest issue

  • Alaingrvis

    sounds like wes will be benched. scott said players think because the player behind then are injured they don’t have to try hard. sounds like wes.

  • khomphuong2

    Sound Like Kobe was being sarcastic (to fans who blame on him when Lakers lost)

    Kobe takes the blame: "It's on me. Things go good, it's us. Things go bad, it's me."— Mark Medina (@MarkG_Medina) November 17, 2014

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Help, I have no idea either.

  • roberlin

    Kobe’s a big fat liar.

  • LW

    It’s pretty accurate, only Kobe can’t help but go with ‘me’ instead of ‘us’ when he plays.

  • roberlin

    I disagree with the notion that Lin should play with the second unit because they fit his game best.

    No, that’s not true. The second unit seems to be a better fit because JLin brings out the best in them!

    If Lin was given the light to impact the game like we know he can, he’d be playing fantastic with Boozer, Hill, Johnson, et al. He brought out the best in unathletic guys like Novak and Jeffries. He can do the same with the unathletic line-up for the Lakers. IF he’s given the chance.

    And, no, Lin won’t be able to turn the Lakers into world beaters. But I guaranteed they’d be much, much better than this current team the way it plays and is constructed.

  • blubell
  • sport

    Please say more Boozer so Scott has an excuse to bench you and Hill! Then the team can finally go on winning! But kudos for Boozer for calling out Byron Scott’s incompetence! Dude is clueless he’s focusing on defense when their offense isn’t even geling!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    The problem is there is a GARGANTUAN wall in the first unit that can’t be smashed down.

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    To me it is not entirely about how they perform or what line up has best net rating. It is about how to make any given lineup work….ANd it is not working

  • roberlin

    Oh, JLin man, stop beating yourself up! One game, just one game.

  • PPP

    Unfortunately kobe will continue to chuck up shots until he get pass kareem. What is kareems record?

  • Alaingrvis

    i disagree with the boozer hill wes thing they are bad on both ends. can lin help them score sure. well maybe wes and hill missed wide open shots. but if hill and boozer play that type of defense lin can’t do nothing about that

  • Riddick

    I don’t think Lin will choose to be back w/the Lakers next season if things don’t change. He has definitely reached his limit. I guess Bryant proved that no one can play w/him. smh

  • Alaingrvis

    lol boozer calling every one out

  • 717

    That’s great Kobe but we need you to actually pass the ball to your teammates.

  • joyce ward

    OK here is my take on lin. You guys know that I am Lin’s biggest fan, but tonight the sulking that lin did tonight did not sit well with me. His passive aggressive attitudes pisses me off more than anything when the team is not playing the way he wants them to play. Kobe is kobe and will always be Kobe. He found a way to coexist with Harden, then if coming off the bench, then so be it. Lin gets himself into these predicaments with his stubbornness. I would not doubt that his poor play is because he wants to play with the second unit because he has given up on the bigs in the 1st unit, If lin wants to be a starter he needs to take command of the offense and set the example for other players to follow him Scott obviously is not going to go up against kobe, so lin needs to work it out. All I know that I am sick of lin being half in and half out. There is no level playing field for him in the NBA, so he needs to be on his guard at all times, and not play into their hands like he dib tonight. You can disagree all you want, but this one is on lin. peace out

  • Thanks, I added to Video Gallery.

    One thing that was very telling from the video. Jeremy was not even upset with his performance.
    When asked about what the strategy to get himself going in the next game, he said what’s on his mind
    “The game of basketball is we gotta do it together .. on both ends of the floor.
    If I go into the game, concern about myself, that’s detrimental.
    If my mindset is be aggressive to make as many plays for the team, that’s great! ”

    It’s clear that Lin’s mind was occupied with how wrong the team is functioning.
    Usually if he didn’t contribute, he’d be the 1st one to take the responsibility.
    By not doing so, it’s clear that he’s thinking (Kobe) is being detrimental to the team without saying it outloud.

    I’d say good for Jeremy. The team is dysfunctional and he’s a better coach than Byron Scott to recognize the problem.

    Note: I’d still want Jeremy to score some to avoid blame game on himself but it’s clear the team is in disarray that it’s the last thing in his mind.

  • roberlin

    Even with Kobe, IF Kobe is just willing to cede a little bit of control to JLin, I believe JLin can make it work. We’ve seen glimpses of it this season. Not many, but we’ve seen them.

  • CaliUSMC

    word!

  • Carol Tiu

    Ah, so that’s why Byron said before that he will not change line-up for 20 games. He’s factored in the math for kobe beating MJ record.

  • Alaingrvis

    i agree he seem to give up because the bigs gave him nothing defensively

  • sport

    Many of those bench players should be starters but Scott is stubborn and refuses to change the lineup! Nick Young, Davis, and Clarkson for Tuesday would make wonders! I would start Ellington or Kelly over Clarkson when he gets back. Kelly is out again with his hamstring!

  • Riddick

    No line up is going to work if Bryant is the problem. He plays both units, so he’s going to get in the way 35-45min of the game. Byron is a joke!

  • I understand where you’re coming from, Joyce.

    And I’d be the 1st to say Lin needs to score a bit for himself to avoid the blame-game and let his opinion be heard.

    But watch Lin’s post-game interview below and my take on it. Knowing how he usually accept the blame for bad performance (6pts in last GSW game) but he didn’t this time, it’s clear that he’s frustrated by the level of trust that Kobe displayed on the floor and not trust the teammates, not looking for open teammates.

    So no pass for Lin but Lakers lockerroom is at the boiling point now. It’ll be interesting to see how Lin would approach the game if Kobe keeps doing his solo MJ thing.

  • TTNN

    I think he still had a hope with this team, and trying to get things right. When he give up hoping, he will look for his own, then it might gets better. But that’s kind of sad though.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’m not even pointing out Kobe.There is really a wall in the first unit, from Kobe, to defense, to the pecking order. Not easy to point it out since the wall varies from game to game.

  • spiderman

    “passive-aggressive” is a bit harsh, Joyce:)

    I don’t think he’s throwing the game. The Lakers are a sinking ship

  • roberlin

    Harden isn’t Kobe. People forget Jeremy and Harden are about the same age. Kobe, on the other hand, truly is King Kobe on the Lakers. He gets whatever he wants. To say that Lin could co-exist with Harden therefore he can make it work with Kobe is just not accurate.

    And Lin does NOT want to play with the second unit. Lin sees himself as a starter, not a back-up. He I’m sure has no desire to move back to the bench.

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    40% Jeremy, 60% on the team. That’s my take.

    If Jeremy has to be an ISO player to be effective with Kobe on the lineup then so be it. The problem is there’s no ball for him to ISO too.

  • Alaingrvis

    wel i didnt think of that good point. thought the trust was on the team but could see him meaning kobe

  • Brent Yen

    he is joking, right?

  • 717

    Harden was not this bad. Not 37 shots a game, not 44 minutes a game, and he passed the ball sometimes. It’s one thing to say Lin has to find a way to deal with Kobe. But really not sure there is a way to deal with Kobe’s utter selfishness. Plus the rest of the team is pretty awful and also not making an effort because of Kobe.

  • LW

    Lin sounds mad in this interview! I think this is the first time he calls out somebody other than himself by saying there are so many things deep-rooted and wrong with this team right now.

  • blubell

    He is clearly not on the same page as everyone.

  • blubell
  • roberlin

    I don’t get the quote. So, Kobe trusts his teammates to do their thing, but then just ignores them during the game???

  • sport

    Hill, Boozer, and Wes needs to go to the bench NOW!

  • khomphuong2

    Look like Kobe told the front office before the season started that he can do all by himself to win. Front office disagreed but let him do his thing.

    ESPN article said: Lakers front office wants all the fans to see that Kobe Ball does not work. Well, the fans are seeing it clearly IMO.— Paul Villarreal (@CNM_JLin_Vids) November 17, 2014

  • GoodDayLA

    I agree Lin is sulking but I disagree on the rest. Lin wants to start. He is fine with the roster of starters. Lin lacks the moxy and savvy and street smarts to deal with Kobe and NBa politics. He is also an Asian American trailblzaer who is damned if do or don’t.

    Lin is not close to perfect and makes mistakes on and off court, but what would you like the kid to do? Gun for empty stats?

    Lin rather get 0 and lose by 30 than score 20 and lose by 10 every night

  • jolno

    Kobe seems to live in his own world where words have different meanings. That ESPN article surely looks very credible now.

  • PPP

    Kobe is worst than harden, at least harden did not lie. lol

  • Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
    That’s the definition of insanity
    – Einstein.

    The objective is not to keep them in the game, but eventually win games as a team.
    Kobe has a mental block on Teamball despite being super-intelligent on ISO-ball

  • Riddick

    I disagree completely. Why does Lin always have to put all the effort of adjusting his game to everyone else. He’s sulking…really? When have you known Lin to ever give up or cry foul. Saying he’s sulking is just an out right insult. He’s human and allowed to reach a limit w/a team that he has been giving his 125% in w/a player that obviously wants his points before a win. Unbelievable calling out Lin when there is a lot more happening on this team than just Lin not shooting & ‘sulking’.

  • roberlin

    Oh, I get it.

    It’s not about TRUST. He just thinks is teammates all suck.

  • Alaingrvis

    this is a issue sure short term you keep the team close but the effects later on will drown the team

  • Brent Yen

    my point exactly

  • GoodDayLA

    There is ball to ISO a bit but Lin lacks ISO ability and he knows lakers would still lose the same, just that his ppg would be better with lower fg%

  • sport

    Davis and Clarkson both give effort on defense and offense while playing with Lin! In fact they went on a great run during previous game garbage time when Kobe sat against the Pelicans! That run cut the deficit to only 7 points!

  • Carol Tiu

    When that reporter said “…get myself going…” it kinda pricked JLin’s ears. He’s obviously fed up with this “aggressive” issue they keep on attaching to him.

  • blubell
  • GoodDayLA

    Yes

  • sport

    He called Kobe out indirectly regarding playing as a “team”.

  • Riddick

    Completely bs calling that on Lin. The sinking ship has more to do w/Bryant-Scott tag team than Lin not going selfish iso. Wow…just wow how fans can turn on Lin.

  • blubell
  • DeLincious

    Wondering if people still think Lakers is a good situation for Lin?

  • webattorney

    Last sentence is weird.

  • roberlin

    Unfortunately, I think the fans don’t see Kobe ball as a failure. Instead, they think Kobe ball would work if the team had some real talent and didn’t force Kobe to jack up 40 shots a game.

  • khomphuong2

    Yes

  • IsabeliJane*17

    If you’re planning to troll or stir up posters, forget it.

    If you’re asking a legitimate question. YES.

  • Briiick

    Lin is mad that kobe is not mad after losing game after game.

  • Brent Yen

    It is…..and in fact it does not matter anyway. He is here at LAL.

  • Brent Yen

    yeah, those fans just want Lin taking the shots without the ball. lol

  • PPP

    You dont sound like you are at peace. You need to sleep well and come back, lol.

  • cheapjing

    definitely yes, the media is not blindly blaming lin

  • Briiick

    My thought too. By paying Kobe top money for two seasons, they are outsourcing the franchise to Kobe for two seasons.

  • Brent Yen

    After HOU, I can definitely live with medias only calling him out as too passive.

  • Barry Allen

    yeah, it’s not trust when you ignore the wide open teammates and brick the shots when you’re double and triple teamed.

  • GoodDayLA

    This is what lakers fans think. Totally. Never will change their opinion. They just think Lin is subpar 🙁

  • Barry Allen

    translation: “kobe is hogging the ball”

  • cheapjing

    it is good. people just expect more from him

  • Skwo

    “We gotta do it together, on both ends of the floor. If I go into a game concerned about myself in some ways that’s detrimental to the team. If my mindset is to go in and be aggressive and make as many plays for the team, whether it’s me scoring or someone else scoring, then that’s great.”
    I can’t say Jeremy is calling out/criticizing Kobe because I don’t think he is that kind of person. But I think he recognizes that being aggressive does not translate to team success, if it’s the wrong kind of aggressiveness. So many people are calling for Jeremy Lin to take more shots and take control and I’m sure he has gotten the memo from people around him. However, he understands that there are two types of aggressiveness: Detrimental aggressiveness (first part of quote, and could describe how Kobe is playing) and beneficial aggressiveness (second part of quote and what Jeremy is trying to play like). Jeremy wants to win. Him chucking up shots will not translate to wins. He understands being aggressive in the right way is the only way the Lakers have a shot at winning. Another Kobe on the team will not result in wins; it will only magnify the issues. The problem is that only Jeremy is adopting this kind of “beneficial aggressiveness” mindset. Everyone else is concerned about me me me, I have to score, I have to get my points, I have to make myself look good. Jeremy later continues on in the interview saying he tried to come out aggressive but for whatever reason the team never got into rhythm. In other words, Jeremy and his teammates didn’t have the same “aggressive” mindset. And honestly I don’t think they will until it’s far too late.

  • Riddick

    I agree w/you psalm. I’d like to see Lin score more too, but I can honestly say that it’s not going to make a difference in wins because there are team wide problems that can’t/won’t be fixed.
    It’s very difficult for someone like Lin that has always willed his team to win and now he finds himself in a situation that he can’t or unable to find a clear way to help his team win.

  • blubell
  • real-dsb

    Today, the Lakers Offensive Rating (pts/100 possesions) was 112, which would rank 6th in the league if that were their season average. GSW has allowed 98 pts/100p this season. So Lakers were +14 compared to GSW average allowed.

    On the other hand, the Lakers defensive rating today was 132.5 pts/100p, which is obviously atrocious. GSW has scored 108.8/100p this season, so Lakers allowed 24 more pts to GSW than their average scored.

    The problem is the defense!

    Horry calling out Kobe.

    Both side with Lin

  • GoodDayLA

    He is really stubborn. I know you want him to make best of a bad situation, but Lin can’t fix the problem (kobe snd managements tank plans) and will not gun for empty stats. He knows they will lose unless the team does a 180. Lin is young and dumb enough to think him making the problem more obvious will make a difference.

    Lin needs massive pnr, it is not his fault he gets like 0 a game with a crammed floor unspaced

  • true, Lin is clearly at wit’s end because he knew it’s going to result in another loss if Kobe persisted in playing ISO-ball.

    It’s a clear case of frustration boiled over. Lin could have scored some points and confronted Kobe about it but it didn’t happen. Let’s see how Lin will handle this next in dealing with Kobe. Kobe and his teammates are clearly not on the same page.

  • SamC89

    I know Kobe fans think that but I don’t believe Lakers fans do. Well, at least not most of them.

  • Jedi

    I actually prefer that he is allowed to voice his thoughts on what is wrong with the team. The very fact that he feels like he can (as politically correct as possible) is a huge step. On other teams, he may just give you that neutral Lin face and spout stuff that mean nothing.
    He’s not broken, he’s frustrated because he can see the solution but people don’t listen.

  • SamC89

    I would be very interested to see one game in which Kobe sits. Just to see if it changes the dynamic any.

  • SamC89

  • LAJane

    Lin isn’t happy, we’re not happy…so thanks for this even-tempered post when so many vent their frustration with the team/management situation by turning on Jeremy. I think this is why he so hates people clinging to “Linsanity”, as if the alignment of the stars for that particular incandescent moment means that he should be the Nova that blasts every situation into the same shining. He is the one directly experiencing the limits of talent, intelligence, sincerety, and intense effort. The acid smog of others’ superhero fantasies is just another complication to be dealt with. I think he’s doing a great job as a player, and most especially as a human being. He gives things time, he doesn’t get mean, but he DOES NOT roll over. It’s not passive aggressive to hold your temper until you’ve let every option play out and then to let your opinion be clearly known without being so confrontational that you push others into ever more rigid opposition. I’m on for the whole ride with this guy…I’m that impressed.
