G21 NOP @ LAL Game Thread+Chat

How will Jeremy respond to this pretense of benching him for defensive purpose when Price is really not stopping anyone consistently?

The only thing Price does better than Lin is having more 0pts game, shooting worse and handing the ball to Kobe.

Let’s hope JLin will play all out with his minutes, however few it might be. And Kobe’s shooting inefficiency will resurface again as the Pelicans double-and-triple again in the 4th quarter. Perhaps the best scenario is a Pelicans blowout by Q3 so Lin and the 2nd team gets to play a lot of minutes. If they can make a comeback only to be replaced by the starters who proceed to lose the game, that will be perfectย  ๐Ÿ˜†

Letโ€™s go, JLin!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL First again

  • Brent Yen

    Time for a Linsanity 3D off the bench!!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    shhhh

  • Brent Yen

    lol

  • I’ll repeat again my secret wish (“sssshh!”)

    “Perhaps the best scenario is a Pelicans blowout by Q3 so Lin and the 2nd team gets to play a lot of minutes.
    If they can make a comeback only to be replaced by the starters who proceed to lose the game, that will be perfect” LOL

  • Brent Yen

    New starters have more to prove than Lin and Boozer. So…they will try their best.. And blame the chemistry if it does not work

  • Alaingrvis

    get used to big leads to overcome

  • Brent Yen

    OTOH….I think Lin must be tired of playing with Kobe too.. Might be a good way to relax and do his own thing.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That’s the best scenerio:-)

  • True! I’m sure Byron is already practicing what smart line to say in a post-game interview after a loss :p
    – “It takes time to build chemistry”
    – “I need more time before getting fired” :>

  • Alaingrvis

    one thing to be happy about kobe iso will not involve lin

  • Brent Yen

    I always want to see Boozer to abuse other teams’ bench. Lets see how it goes…

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Anyone who is watching the game, please keep us informed what’s going on in the court with JLin. Thanks in advance!

  • John Lee

    For those of you who cry about Lin playing backup to Parker, how do you like Lin backing up Price? Sorry had to rub it in.

  • yes… more freedom trying to play his game.
    If Byron pulls him repeatedly despite getting hot, that would be very funny to explain to the media!

  • Brent Yen

    Priceless

  • Alaingrvis

    aahh head down

  • LOL .. Lin-less = Winless

  • Bearness

    For “defensive” reasons. Man, I’m really sick of hearing that crap. All least veil has been lifted and they are not pretending anymore. The only question I have now is, will BS finally unleash Lin for over 30 min? Somehow I really doubt it.
    Please find a good team that trusts you next year, Jeremy.

  • Brent Yen

    On thing to watch is if Price can play more than 30 minutes.

  • Bearness

    But, will Lin be allowed to do “his own thing”? He is now sharing ball with Nick Young who doesn’t exactly distribute the ball.

  • Dan Cohen

    wow lakernation is actually sorta trambling on lin..but more like linfans… I think crazy blind lin fans made it worst.

  • Riddick

    Ok, I’ve changed my mind & am going to watch this game to see the beginning of Lakers crash & burn after b-s’ change.

    Let’s gooooo NO…until Lin comes in!

  • joyce ward
  • yeah,, it will be glorious to see how Byron will respond afterwards :>

  • joyce ward
  • Bearness

    LOL, oh to be a fly on that wall.

  • Dan Cohen

    The thing to watch for price is whether or not he is able to free himself and keep in front of his man AFTER opponent does a pick on him. Lin gets smash on the opponent’s pick and then end up chasing the person he was suppose to guard. He actually got better in houston and then a few times in Lakers, but now it’ back to that getting smash by opponent’s pick.. What happened..no communication??

    If price is not able to free himself from the opponent pick..than inserting him is a bad choice.. because it’s you win by the kobe and die by the kobe because kobe will be the one running the offense mostly and shooting.

  • John Lee

    Nah, he has the scripts from the Book of McHale.

  • sws94

    Guess Scott doesn’t read Lin’s social media.

  • sws94

    Maybe Boozer plays poor defense, well, not maybe he does but I like how he spoke out. He’s a Lin ally for now.

  • Dan Cohen

    what does play within themselves mean??

  • joyce ward
  • Riddick

    That may be, but I can’t look/watch him or crimeFighter. They keep speaking from the wrong ends of their hole. I’ll be happy w/Lakers’ loss & Lin’s attempt at bailing them out..hopefully w/good #s.

  • My translation: “Don’t try to do too much. Pass any shots to Kobe!”

    Otherwise, see what happened to Boozer and Lin :]

  • Bearness

    “Pass the ball to Kobe.”

  • BenjaminZ

    Dont do nothing
    dont get in Kobes way
    Let Kobe do his thang
    pass to Kobe
    Dont question Kobe
    dont think just pass to kobe gtf out of the way

  • Alaingrvis

    lol really does boozer not have internet

  • Riddick

    He keeps trying to sell lemons for oranges w/no one buying. smh

  • John Lee

    I’m reminded of the quote: “Who watches the Watchmen?” Who fights the crime when the crime is Kobe himself?

  • Yascar

    Is it just me or does he look pissed?

  • CJSHYY

    Comfortable?! SMH! So that meas he used to be in bench, right? Really hate this no warm feeling coach. Lakers thought w these Lin will feel better or the fans will be happy.. smh!

  • Riddick

    He’s more afraid of Boozer’s reaction than Lin’s. He plans on giving Booz the news & running fast after.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • CJSHYY

    He should.

  • CJSHYY

    I really think Scott & Lakers show no respect to Boozer at all. smh!

  • jolno

    Scott still hasn’t talked to Nash but expects it to be no big deal.

    Scott still hasn’t done any coaching but expects blaming the players (Lin) to be the easy way out lol.

  • Riddick

    No use warming up…he’ll be cold by the time b-s puts him in the game. smh

  • occupatio

    i really get frustrated watching boozer play — on both ends of the court. now i have to keep watching him TOGETHER with lin? so friggin annoying.
    and the most obvious part of it: lin and davis should be on the court together.

  • JT

    i know

  • Pete Roces

    LA is all about losing now, they don’t want to win. Lin should just concentrate on padding stats.

  • sws94

    I don’t know, doesn’t look into it. That shot was really short too. But, it wasn’t much to go on.

  • JT

    curious to see how much the offense will suffer when Lin is out…will be interesting to see

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    You won’t see Davis and JLin on the court for BS and Kobe make sure that this won’t happen in their watch. It’s their intention from Day 1.

  • Pete Roces

    Price to start means LA is tanking, so Lin should just pad his stats with whatever time BS gives him.

  • sws94

    Play to the strengths, don’t try to force, don’t try to do more than what you do well. Lin plays within himself, that within himself is taking risks. Coaches like McHale and Scott don’t like that, D’Antoni knew for Lin to make great plays he had to make some really ugly ones too. Look at Kobe, he still makes really ugly plays but of course he’s Kobe, he can get away with anything.

  • Arsenium12 .
  • true. if Lin/Davis became so lethal, LAL fans will demand them to have more plays that Kobe’s failing ISOs.

    And that can’t happen for a successful tanking plan. It does make sense from that perspective

  • sws94

    They may not look that much different, just Kobe will get tired out faster. On defense, they’ll see Price isn’t that good.

  • joyce ward
  • Dan Cohen

    it’s win by kobe and die by kobe.. so if kobe is hot.. it’s fine. if kobe is not.. blowout by opponents.

  • Riddick

    Yup, b-s’ so inept, he can’t even come up w/his own ideas on how to marginalize Lin.

  • yeah, only if winning is the goal, right?

    I’m becoming more convinced that it’s intentional on Byron’s part to tank by not developing lethal Lin/Davis PnR.
    He’s smarter than McHale so if he doesn’t do it, it’s to support Kobe ISOs as the “best option” that Lakers have.

    Lin/Davis PnR is a threat to Kobe ISOs so Byron doesn’t want to grow the chemistry

  • BenjaminZ
  • Dorothy

    Yes, I think that is the case. He is afraid of Boozer, it is not that he has no repsect to Boozer. I think BS actually has no respect to Lin that is why he was not afraid to tell Lin. SMH

  • Dorothy

    Guess Kobe doeso not care about his Asian market.

  • JT

    BS continues to BS, no way Lin is “comfortable” with it

  • JT

    just shows that the coach is all that matters. Doesn’t matter what the team is, if the coach doesn’t support u, you are *****ed.

  • Dan Cohen

    But davis is the difference maker.so we’ll see.

  • Rick Johnson

    Bryant / Davis / Hill / Johnson / Price NetRtg: -23.5

    Bryant / Boozer / Hill / Johnson / Lin NetRtg -15.0

    Boozer / Bryant / Davis / Johnson / Lin Net Rtg +32.4

    http://stats.nba.com/team/#!/1610612747/lineups/advanced/?CF=MIN*G*18&sort=NET_RATING&dir=1

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t think so. BS complained about Lin got too less AS vs Celtics?! Can you believe that? He only played less than 20 min but Rondo got more than 30 min… This is getting more & more difficult for him. Hope he can out of Lakers soon. smh!

  • BenjaminZ

    As Monta Ellis said
    “You’re only as good as your coach thinks you are”

  • Dan Cohen

    post that on laker nation and let the trolls eat themselves alive.

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Dan Cohen

    but never had

    Bryant / Davis / Hill / Johnson / Lin NetRtg ????

  • BenjaminZ

    Kobe be like..

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Kobe & Scott sure will have game plan bad for him… smh! It probably will be hard to get even 10 now.

  • JoeTeam

    Today likely:

    – Davis in foul trouble.
    – Hill producing less
    – Lin fine for 25 mins. They’ll cheat to give Lin more minutes to keep it close.

    We’ll be happy like a Rox happy for Lin’s time on court.
    Everyone is appeased.

    LAL loses.

  • JoeTeam

    Carr is up, Kap is down. Life is like that. JLin no matter how low will be back. So will we. Hang in there …

  • Rick Johnson

    If games are like I’ve seen in the past, Prices porous defense will let opponents penetrate at will, Davis trying to pick them up and defend will get into foul trouble. Without any other offense Kobe is going to shoot like crazy his inefficient contested 2’s especially since Price’s man will double on Kobe and leave Price alone. Price will hit an occasional basket because he’s left wide open.

  • BenjaminZ

    This

  • JoeTeam

    Yes. this set of moves will make new problems. We know the problems, this team is spending money for goals other than winning.

    In Hou, the problems got covered up by ball moving and some great 3s at times. But it was clear they had problems with hubris in the playoffs (the best sf of the POR series barking out orders to the elite defender while Lillard throws them out of the POs.

  • Rick Johnson

    Actually that’s NetRtg -20.6. I think maybe Davis and Hill are kind of redundant. Surprisingly Boozer/Davis works better than Hill / Davis.

  • joyce ward

    They will give lin more minutes to PR shutdown about his less minutes.

  • occupatio

    i really think byron is just stupid. i dont believe hes intentionally tanking.

  • rookie75094

    Jlin response to BS benching him….

  • sport

    More PG blows by Price means more work for Davis and fouls!

  • sws94

    Joyce, outside of what we’re reading and the various boards, any feel from other Laker observers and fan/friends on this? Maybe you’ve given it and I missed it?

  • Yascar

    Lakersground thinks its dumb. Generally ok with boozer but not with Lin being benched. Having said that, they don’t see J as a starting PG necessarily, but he is definitely better than Price. Talk about captain obvious on that last bit.

  • joyce ward
  • joyce ward

    They are all puzzled by this move, Everybody is shaking their head.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I personally think I can coach this Lakers team to regular season and beyond even if I only have “basic” basketball knowledge. My mentality is way different from Byron lol

    Byron logic: Let's keep the two players with the best chemistry on the team separate at all costs— LakersPulse.NET (@LakersPulse) December 8, 2014

  • joyce ward
  • joyce ward
  • sport

    Technically anyone of us can coach better! It’s sad!

  • sws94

    Yep. They’re sensible people. I would halfway support it if Davis was still on the bench. But, Ronnie Price starting even for the weakest PGs never mind Lin is unbelievable. He almost got cut from the team not so long ago.

  • John Lee

    Kobe, or Kobe. Did I mention Kobe?

  • Dan Cohen

    so kobe can score 30 and get closer to MJs record

  • Dan Cohen

    that is why bs say reevaluate after 5 games! =D

  • sport

    Except Price is his golden boy! BS would rather keep him as starter unless FO says something!

  • Dorothy

    I used to think Lakers wanted to sign Lin next year cheaply, but now I change my mind. If FO let BS bench Lin, there is no way Lin will sign with Lakers next year and FO knows that.

  • John Lee

    Lin: the reviver of defunct and/or non-existing NBA careers. Benefactors include Bev and Price.

  • sport

    Anthony Davis is a breath of fresh air compared to the fake star in Lebron without the big ego!

  • sport

    I wish so much for Lin to play with LaMarcus Aldridge next season! Please make it happen!

  • sws94

    Really? I’m not so sure about that.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    This is a loss… hehe

  • Dan Cohen

    you know.. lin BETTER not defer to nick .

  • Dan Cohen

    he likes to defer too much.

  • Alaingrvis

    most games if not all are losses

  • Alaingrvis

    no he don’t not this year

  • sport

    Lakers can go up to 16 players but really what’s the point? Not like people don’t know they’re tanking! BS couldn’t make more obvious! Side note: Memphis has such a great, Bieber is lucky to be part of their big 3 and possibly win a Championship with them!

  • HY C

    as long as Kobe has 20+ pts, I think BS will consider it’s a w

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Byron Scott chooses a back to back game of the Pelicans to start his new lineup.
    FYI, the Pelicans is 2-1 on back to back games. The only lost was to Washington Wizards by 3 points. The team was one of the youngest team in NBA with the next to eldest player Omar Asik at 28.
    Also the Pelicans was extremely competitive after a landslide loss. Last night the Pelicans lost to the LA Clippers by 20 points.

    Prediciton: Byron Scott will shoot himself at his foot in this game.

  • sport

    James Worthy will answer question during 3rd quarter? Which account is that how do we ask him about Lin?!

  • Yascar

    Let the bloodbath begin.

  • joyce ward
  • KHuang

    Not Lin’s call.

    Byron Scott will decide how much Nick Young passes to Lin.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Photoshop! Lin wouldn’t do such a thing.

  • sport

    Asik is lucky to play with Anthony Davis who isn’t a ball hog.

  • dons

    Just turned on the game. WHAT! This is the BS Plan he’d been working on all season? What a loser. BS. He really does not want Lin and Davis to renew they PnR in pre-season. Price is simply not an impact player, of any sorts. Can’t wait for the next GS game, at least they have a great coach and phenomenal coaching staff.

  • Chipdip

    Go Pelicans Go!

  • blubell
  • Pelicans leading 11-7 with 3s and layup after Lakers started well.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Why are coaches allergic to something as basic as pick and roll? Shouldn’t everything start from something simple? Even the champions play pick and roll.

  • MoominFloren

    Good job Pelicans ! keep it up

  • dons

    Lin, please do not sign with Lakers for another year with BS and Kobe, let alone further extensions to Kobe’s career.

  • LOL Lakers got 2 offensive rebounds and couldn’t finish

  • sport

    Come on Pelicans stop those TOs!

  • Pelicans 14-7 after another 3

  • sport

    LOL Good job Asik and Davis!

  • The real Twin Tower :>

  • sport

    Best thing about Pelicans, Asik is a starter, always liked him when Lin was with the Rockets!

  • dons

    I wanna see Anthony Davis spread his 8 foot wings, and light it up while Lin is benched.

  • John Lee

    Because it’s beyond their brain capacity.

  • Jeremiah

    I love to root against the Lakers. They suck!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    30 percent shooting by lakers expected….yes

  • joyce ward
  • sport

    Yea same here! Best thing is this start actually plays within the system and isn’t a ball hog! Would be a great team for Lin as well!

  • John Lee

    Rooting for the opposing team is FUN! I could get used to this… LOL

  • dons

    Scott is essentially blaming Lin for the loss string, not his coaching or lack of team play, aside from having players to perform at high level.

  • Alaingrvis

    since last year

  • Let’s have fun while supporting the tanking effort ๐Ÿ˜€

  • John Lee

    Surely meant lowlights…

  • LW

    Yeah! There is nothing to lose!

  • joyce ward
  • Price 1-3 so far
    – Made 1st 3 off Kobe assist
    – Missed the next 3pt attempt left
    – Missed the driving layup

  • sport

    Rooting for a team without ball hog! I can get used to this!

  • John Lee

    Yes, because Price’s FG% is not yet low enough to justify BS firing.

  • Nick Young is off the bench with 4:32 left in Q1

  • then missed the long 3 from the top of the key

  • blubell

    Why isn’t Jeremy in?

  • Alaingrvis

    price is god

  • John Lee

    He Asian, and takes shine away from Kobe.

  • LW

    And Lin stays on the bench! Maybe he will get 10mins tonight!

  • Lin is waiting to check in

  • Lin is in with 3:38 left in Q1
    MEM leading 18-13 after 2 FTs.

  • Bearness

    Because he’s only a bench player now. BS doesn’t need to justify giving him starter minutes…so he won’t.

  • sport

    Bias, racism, what else? Lin always got to go out in 4 minute mark in 4th quarter but not Price! Told you Scott will give him 35 minutes!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    My Toothless plush toy seems to be asking the same thing.. “Jeremy…no.. play?”

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Music to the ear!!!!!!!!!!

  • Dan Cohen

    lakers still have some class. they cheered

  • MomentousPetey

    So Kobe still in? hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm….

  • Dan Cohen

    Omg.. kobe .. that’s 2 assists from lin gone already!!!!

  • JAD2456

    Heard the loud cheer for Lin!

  • joyce ward
  • Lin gathered the Def. rebound then made crosscourt pass to Kobe … who proceeded to travel

  • occupatio

    never seen kobe pass to lin as much as he did with price so far.

  • sport

    Your Toothless Plush should grow into a giant and eat BS up alo with his boy toy Price!

  • dons

    This season scrub Price 31% FG, 25% 3PT% vs Lin 45% FG, 35% 3PT%.

    What? Hardly finished writing this. BS Plan was all BS? Price is in <4 min? Fire the coach.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Dragons don’t eat junk food, especially noble, good ones.

  • dons

    Take him out, and put in Nick. Kobe to the reserves.

  • Bearness

    Lin on court with Kobe and Young? LOL, fat chance of touching the ball.

  • LW

    So Kobe asked BS to let him run the 1st unit and the 2nd unit!

  • MoominFloren

    Anyone pass it to Lin?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    There is a chance that Lin will outscore Kobe in this Q

  • Bearness

    Not that I saw so far..

  • Holiday went inside and scored on a jumper on Lin.
    Lin got a payback with layup plus And-1!

  • JC

    And 1

  • Alaingrvis

    lakers shooting 23 percent before lin shot

  • occupatio

    im glad he took that shot. called his own number against a nobody defnder. got the look he wanted, just didnt drop

  • MoominFloren

    That’s means Lin must fight for the rebound and do it all by himself…

  • sport

    Wow Lin finally gets to play without Kobe on the 2nd unit?! Why didn’t he ever get that as a starter?!!

  • blubell
  • Chipdip

    43 seconds only

  • occupatio

    swaggy will always take the contested J even if Lin is open for a 3. its annoying. its also terrible coaching.
    spurs would never play that way.

  • Alaingrvis

    this team has zero offensive rhythm set by the starters brick fest

  • sport

    The high arc looked great too =(

  • golfhacker

    Lin was defending the guy in the post. That’s why he was already so deep in the paint when Holiday made the shot. Of course Stu didn’t see THAT.

  • dons

    Saw Anthony Davis light it up against GS. Mostly creating his own shot, or putting back misses, his 14 of 19 for 30 pts despite tough defense. The guy has wings. Pelicans lost, but exciting to watch Davis.

  • JJ Hui

    He runs himself into the ground soon! He has all the right bricking and no one can say anything! Are we living in third world country or what?

  • occupatio

    swag is just a black hole when he gets the ball

  • IsabeliJane*17

    The Spurs would rather tire out opponents by passing and passing and letting opponents chase their passes rather than take contested shots.

  • Alaingrvis

    rare player. will challenge duncan for greatest pf

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    2nd team +/- all positive.
    First team +/- all negative.
    The bench team will win this game.

  • 7iger

    Doesn’t matter whose in the starting lineup if Kobe a starter nothing change.

  • dons

    Lin can’t get Assists, unless the Lakers can knock down their open shots.

  • occupatio

    any offense built around boozer jumpers is pure idiocy

  • Who’s supposed to guard Ryan Anderson? Sacre?

  • Bearness

    Boozer is just shooting, every, single, time. =/

  • Brent Yen

    Lin’s fault!!!! LOL any shots are Lin’s fault!!!

  • MomentousPetey

    LOL

  • Bearness

    I thought Booz?

  • sport

    Lin’s the only one willing to run to put a hand up!

  • Skwo

    Lol whenever Lin is on the floor it’s like all of his teammates suddenly decide to play with 0 basketball IQ

  • Dan Cohen

    i sometime wish lin did NOT go and help.. else it looks like it was his man!

  • dons

    Why not? Kobe takes so many contested, off-balance shots.

  • #TrollHard :]

  • Brent Yen

    No it’s Lin’s LOL….

  • golfhacker

    Looks like Sacre.

  • occupatio

    scott is stuck in the past. he still thinks boozer is someone who can carry a team.

  • sport

    My thoughts exactly!

  • Bearness

    LOL, true that.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    INTERESTING FACT:
    Sacre is doing nothing while everybody is having fun.

  • Chipdip

    Sit Lin down!

  • 7iger

    Not watching game anymore just checking box score.

  • LW

    Young is 0/5. Where is the swagg?

  • dons

    Swag needs to stop the swag, and pass it right back to the open player or Lin.

  • maybe it’s Booz.. PF, right?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The Lakers is led by ‘Carlos Boozer’ 6 points.

  • Bearness

    Oh great, because 1 Kobe wasn’t enough. LOL

  • occupatio

    the lineup changes are pointless. its just boozer all over again. makes no difference. he still gets his crap minutes.

  • sport

    Ball in Lin’s not his hands, thank goodness!

  • sport

    Boozer defense is just horrid!

  • Bearness

    I think it’s definitely “supposed to be” Booz.

  • sport

    Boozer out, Davis in!!

  • joyce ward
  • Boozer is too slow. And his shots are not falling, he’s a complete liability on the floor.
    2 Ryan Anderson 3s plus foul on Ginza

  • Nice assist Lin/Davis!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The strongest line up for the Lakers.

  • blubell

    Lin to Davis!

  • Love Lin

    Lins nice pass 2 Davis.. This is what we call LED..

  • sport

    Finally we get some Lin-Davis action!

  • occupatio

    lin to davis.
    byron needs to stop that right now.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That behind-the-back to Davis is money.

  • Chipdip

    Lin will be benched!

  • occupatio

    lin got AD to bite on a fake!

  • Great job by Lin to tease Davis and baited him for the foul!

  • sport

    Foul on Anthony Davis! Nice Fake Lin!!

  • Dan Cohen

    wah1?? LIN free throw in please!!!

  • occupatio

    bill macdonald is an azzhole. he loves to trash lin

  • Lin missed 2 FTs. He spun the ball a bit before the 2nd shot attempt

  • joyce ward
  • occupatio

    okay price is back. time to eat my instant noodles

  • kauaiblue

    Go pelicans!

  • blubell
  • kauaiblue

    Joyce, whats up with this change??

  • Brent Yen

    This vine looks really blueish…..

  • dons

    Here’s the plan. Put Booze back on the first unit with Kobe & Price, along with the Swag.

    Let Lin play w/o the scrubs, and with Davis and others. Maybe they can show how to pass and team play to hit high pct shots.

  • Dan Cohen

    Lin HAS to make those ft.. he need to squeeze out as many points as possible.. he could’ve gonna 7 pts now.
    F-

  • Dan Cohen

    good idea

  • sport

    Gotta make those shots!

  • dons

    Time to see what’s on 60 Minutes.

  • Alaingrvis

    make every shot it is

  • sport

    It’s BS, he won’t make changes until he loses 15 more games.

  • Alaingrvis

    won’t happen always

  • Lin definitely needs to make the most of his chances.

    Let’s hope he looks to score more in Q3

  • Riddick

    That’s the Tankers way!

  • joyce ward

    AS Jeremy lintel stated iin his post that Lakers want to sign lin as backup PG to keep the connections to china.It is up to lin if he takes the bait.

  • occupatio

    hopefully the starters can keep the game close for the bench unit to win this game!!!

  • sport

    Hill still can’t set screens lol.

  • Chipdip

    Why can’t the coaching staff put together more plays like this???

  • dons

    With Price back, even lost Ballstream connection. Maybe they turn back on with Lin returns.

  • sport

    Except Scott will take 2nd unit out! They don’t get the winning glory!!

  • Alaingrvis

    if wes is the best offensive player lol we have a problem

  • Briiick

    I like the 2nd unit better. Lin was able to play his game more. When Kobe got in, I switched channel. Sorry, I just couldn’t stand a hopeless retirement show.

  • Chipdip

    Pelicans …come on… destroy these Fakers NOW

  • sport

    Issues with shot clock might help the slow Lakers.

  • Did Jrue just score on Price easily?

  • Riddick

    This Pelicans team needs Lin. Come on NO…get Lin!

  • occupatio

    notice how when holiday scores on price, bill macdonald doesnt mention price’s name.

  • sport

    It’s fine just mean more Kobeball towards the end.

  • MomentousPetey

    why yes.. yes he did.

  • MomentousPetey

    is this the Lakers feed?

  • ok, let’s keep track on this Priceless defense ๐Ÿ˜€

  • occupatio

    macdonald is the guy besides stu on lakers announcing team

  • sws94

    I’d like to see him on this team.

  • sport

    Pelicans not a bad destination for Lin at all! Anthony Davis isn’t a ball hog and plays within the offense! Do they need a starting PG? Lin taking notes watching this game?!

  • true, let’s see if he’s forced to say it .. when it happens the 3rd or 4th time

  • MomentousPetey

    ok

  • Riddick

    Not very difficult…despite b-s’ assertion otherwise.

  • Pete Roces

    Pointless to watch lakers play, they are not going for a win. They just put up a show pretending they are trying hard to win. great tanking. Lin by the way should just go for personal stats.

  • Riddick

    I was thinking Lin would have a field day w/Davis-Asik.

  • occupatio

    boozer is such a joke. its misery watching this team

  • kauaiblue

    Got it… thanks… backup? Whay yhe?

  • sport

    Same here!! Looks like we’ve found the perfect destination for Lin!

  • blubell
  • sport

    Pelicans needs a solid PG like Lin! Too many TOs!

  • I’m beginning to see BS is clueless to leave Booz with the starters now

  • Riddick

    I tried watching & failed miserably. Is the season over yet? lol

  • blubell

    Price lost Holiday… again.

  • occupatio

    macdonald said ‘lakers’ not pric eon that holiday bucket. hes has a double standard

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Boozer seriously needs someone to make him look good on offense and Davis to cover his behind on defense.

  • he wants to support BS decision about Lin/Boozer benching decision

  • kauaiblue

    How does jlin take this in stride all the time?

  • JT

    interesting….Hill benched for Boozer to finish the half, but Price still starts

  • occupatio

    boozer needs to stop shooting and do the other things big men are supposed to do.

    this is on byron.

  • Alaingrvis

    foul trouble

  • dons

    Wow, interview on the massive cancer genome project, with lead doc showing his graphic results on the beautiful, new Blackberry Passport. Can’t wait for this phone to be released in US. Only problem is, currently has ATT exclusive for US, only GSM. No CDMA. Wtf for Sprint and Verizon. BTW, how the 1st group doing?

  • Riddick

    Booz change was to fool fans into thinking the benching wasn’t about Lin…b-s LIES.

  • occupatio

    love davis but he is a fouling machine.

  • golfhacker

    FIRE BYRON!!

  • MoominFloren

    Can Lin sees 25 min tonight?

  • Alaingrvis

    20 if were lucky

  • Chipdip

    he only had 19min last game…

  • golfhacker

    No chance.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Needs to iron out his defense but fundamentals are good.

  • Love Lin

    Hows Lin’s min n stats 4 the 1st half?

  • Brent Yen

    He has another 9 mins stints…and that’s it

  • occupatio

    the lineup changes just make byron look more stupid. if you use your players’ talents wrong, it doesnt matter what combos you put on the floor.

  • I guess it was just a life-time experience since his pre-college years

  • BobbyH

    It is called play-dumb-tanking.

  • Brent Yen
  • MoominFloren

    urgh………

  • Chipdip

    They are losing to a 8-10 team on a back to back, that said it all.

  • Chipdip

    The New Tank Commander – Cmd BS

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    Meh, not all GMs are not smart.

  • occupatio

    only front offices set it up to tank. coaches always try to win with what the FO gives them.

    this isnt byron tanking. he is just a fool.

  • sport

    BS is in on the Tanking, that’s why he was hired!

  • BenjaminZ

    Lin doesnt seem to care much when he’s on the bench GOOD!

  • Acbc

    Bs tool lol

  • MoominFloren

    Hmm……may be…..but many have bias…..

  • BenjaminZ

    I think he started on every team hes played on before NBA

  • blubell

    stool or tool? lol

  • wandertheglobe

    He was looking at his nails while the Pels shooting FTs.

  • blubell
  • occupatio

    tool is instrumental for tanking.
    stools are good for floating.

  • Acbc

    Stool tool = bull patties

  • blubell

    so both. got it.

  • BenjaminZ

    hes a hater

  • BenjaminZ

    Anyone so mad at Byron Scott that they need to hit the gym at this hour?

  • Acbc

    Doggie!!

  • blubell

    Need a fire hydrant?

  • Alaingrvis

    they just want people to blame. sad thing is when in doubt blame jeremy

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I did my Pilates earlier so I will be calm while watching this game.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol i already did

  • Riddick

    I need to hit b-s at this hour.

  • occupatio

    i skipped the workout and went straight to the post-workout meal. does that count?

  • Alaingrvis

    i usually work out monday through thursday. but today i was like i need to work out today

  • BenjaminZ

    Lucky you I need to get a picture of Byron’s face and glue that on my sandbag

  • sport

    Top play of the night, Curry with the buzzer beating win, spot and play so similar to Lin’s buzzer beater vs Raptors during Linsanity! ๐Ÿ™

  • BenjaminZ

    if thats chocolate lol

  • BenjaminZ

    One of those days imma get a heart attack for real

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’ll be kickboxing later, so he’s a good motivation to work on my punches.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The offense of the Lakers is abysmal. 1/9 3pt; 33% overall.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol i worked out so i could eat more

  • blubell

    Jeremy to Ed – better quality.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckd0jcr_5Ig

  • MoominFloren

    I shouldn’t kickbox last night….. should save my kicks for tonight!

  • Love Lin

    Lol.. blame it on BScott.. See how many calories u’ve got tonite?

  • sport

    Found the perfect destination for Lin, Pelicans! Look a first half Anthony Davis only took 6 shots! He’s not a chucker at all means his scoring is legit!!

  • BenjaminZ

    I know Ronnie Price is a nice guy and all
    But I can’t shake off this unexplainable resentment whenever I see him play on that court
    and Byron makes me wanna jump off my buildig

  • Riddick

    Both ends of the floor are ‘abysmal’…UNWATCHABLE.

  • BobbyH

    Congrats to Lakers Tankers. Tanking is art and entertaining. Staple Center is a living place of great tanking, instead of great basketball. Showtime, tank time. Lakers Fan, enjoy!

  • occupatio

    its like hating on the kid for the parent’s favoritism.

  • sport

    You actually watch the starters? I just turns off the sound want wait until Lin’s back in!

  • BenjaminZ

    Only child lol

  • occupatio

    lol

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    16 points 1Q!!!!

  • roberlin

    Except Ronnie Price isn’t a child and deserves undeserved resentment from Lin fans.

  • BenjaminZ

    Yah I can’t focus on other things anyways
    but this really is pissing me off
    I’m starting to lose faith in god
    Lin does not deserve this kind of torture
    well its a torture to me at least

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The Pelicans traditionally come out strong in 3Q.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Holiday can’t do squat against Jeremy so they just had to have Ryan Anderson to guard him lol

  • occupatio

    he doesnt make the decisions about lineups etc. he is functionally a kid

  • kauaiblue

    The crowd cheered alot when jeremy came, got the shot and 1, and the cool pass to ed davis… do they not see this?.

  • roberlin

    C’mon dude, “God” doesn’t dictate whether Lin starts or not. Life’s not fair, we just got to deal with it as best we can.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    So Ed Davis is put in the starting lineup for guaranteed assists to Price and Kobe? A’ight.

  • roberlin

    I didn’t say he deserved it. He deserves the undeserved resentment from Lin fans, lol.

  • occupatio

    lakers o built on jumpers. only lin can reliably create buckets in paint. so sit him

  • roberlin

    crowd has no say.

  • BobbyH

    You forgot there are 10 huge tanks there blocking the views.

  • John Lee

    Jeremy is a terrible tanker, ’nuff said.

  • sport

    Imagine Anthony Davis and Asik setting back to back screens for Lin, drools!!

  • BenjaminZ

    You’re right
    Preach lol
    I need to deal with this more than Lin ahah

  • occupatio

    arc on AD shot is lovely

  • Holiday got away from Price, hit the jumper off a screen.
    LAL Announcers praised Holiday the former All-Star

  • John Lee

    I’ll get the bill if Kobe asks Holiday to breakfast.

  • sport

    Pelcians with Asik and Anthony Davis gets all the rebounds!!

  • roberlin

    Laker starting unit getting pounded on both O and D. Couldn’t be happier in such a depressing time, lol.

  • blubell

    Stu Lantz: Nobody is guarding Holiday.

  • sport

    Jrue Holiday the average PG feasting on Price lol.

  • sport

    Should’ve said, Price isn’t guarding Holiday!!

  • Riddick

    I blame this entirely on b-s & not Price. Unlike my complete disrespect for htown scrub aka Lin’s ‘brotha from anotha motha’.

  • Chipdip

    love this game…

  • Alaingrvis

    where is price defense

  • roberlin

    Nobody = Price

  • blubell

    Yup

  • occupatio

    how is the new lineup working against a sub .500 team that is on a back to back?

  • LOL .. so true!

  • sport

    Lin to Pelicans! This is the perfect team for him! How I wish Lin and Asik both went to Pelicans! Imagine what would’ve happened!! Linsanity 2.0!

  • Chipdip

    losing great! love it!

  • blubell
  • Riddick

    …compete & utter FAIL. Surprise to no one here.

  • Alaingrvis

    ohh wht a genius you see it now

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Holiday has a great day with Lin on the bench.

  • occupatio

    macdonald talks about lakers low turnovers. yeah there are few turnovers when the team doesnt pass much

  • IsabeliJane*17

    If Price goes the Patrick Beverley route, then he deserves it. So far, it’s Byron Scott who is pulling a Patrick Beverley.

  • Chipdip

    Great observation…

  • Holiday’s crossover faked Price badly, leading to Asik’s jam

    Thanks for the typo, Alain :p

  • Briiick

    There is a price to pay for selfishness.

  • orLinaryjoe

    sherlock

  • roberlin

    It is a great observation. I posted that analysis myself a few hours ago, lol.

  • occupatio

    i must be a loyal fan cuz this game is hella boring and im still here

  • Alaingrvis

    gasol lol asik

  • blubell
  • sport

    How many times has Holiday turnover the ball? I hope this team trades away Holiday and signs Lin this off season!

  • oh yeah ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Singapore BB Fan

    The biggest lead LAL over NOP is only 3 points and have been trailing NOP from then on….
    IMO, Lin and Clarkson should have no problem close up the game for the starters…

  • blubell

    Lol. plagiarism!

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Riddick

    No sh*$ Sherlock. Too bad b-s didn’t have the sense to figure this out.

  • Chipdip

    Haha… they have to see it to believe

  • sport

    LOL Asik=Gasol

  • orLinaryjoe

    BS is da man! Had trouble not throwing up a little inside my mouth saying that.

  • Alaingrvis

    today is a career day so don’t ask for it today

  • sport

    You mean garbage time right?

  • John Lee

    Lakers had poor D, so BS changes lineup to also take away their O. Tank commander is the stuff legends are made of!

  • MoominFloren

    Please tell this to BS! Every casual basketball fans can see this !

  • Brent Yen

    PB made 4 steals on Holiday last yr. Not He is out helping Price?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Don’t count me out, even if Byron is pulling a Patrick Beverley on Jeremy.

  • Chipdip

    The Pelicans are slacking off! Come on… should be leading by over 20 points…. play harder please

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Kobe’s legs look heavy….doubt he can last till 4Q

  • roberlin

    lol.

  • dons

    Price is simply not a Baller, and teams will not win relying on him for anything. Better is 3rd stringer

  • BobbyH

    No, No, No. Even if in G time, no Lin. Only Kobe. Insert Lin, Lin will score like 20+.

  • occupatio

    how long has lin been sitting?

  • roberlin

    LOL. I figured that out once I saw the new line-up. Lakers should hire me for coach. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • blubell

    Too long

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    You can help but wonder which team is playing back to back.

  • Alaingrvis

    6 minutes 2nd quater. like haif an hour

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    I kinda hate Ed Davis making his shots from Kobe’s assists.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL

  • Riddick

    Especially when crimeFighter isn’t trying to play pg.

  • blubell

    Traitor! lol

  • dons

    That’s aside from the continuous movement with or without the ball, pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, open-look, 2-3 pts. The whole team is shooting better — and defending harder. Livingston is starting to hit his stride now, after recovering from injury — as backup PG, a 6’7″ guard who can dribble, pass, shoot.

  • sport

    Young makes 3, Lin doesn’t cheer at all on the bench, good!

  • I think we want to see Linjustice gets its consequences

  • Singapore BB Fan

    BS looks nervous….his new lineup isn’t producing…i

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOLOLOLOL Just look at his score 17pts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    btw pelicans close to 50 percent from three as well

  • Chipdip

    His new starting PG has … 3 pts… 3 asst ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • John Lee

    Let him sweat, he deserves nothing less.

  • sport

    Same as Lin though…for now.

  • Alaingrvis

    maybe scott is hoping lakers bricks rub on the pelicans

  • sport

    Only 3 minutes to play, Lin do your thing!! One Man Fast Breaks now!

  • Loved how Asik is lending help to his old pal, Lin with his jams ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Riddick

    Wow, Stallone looks awful. Ok, the Tankers have degraded me into ‘star’ watching…how sad.

  • blubell

    Good D Jeremy!

  • John Lee

    But with more than double the PT.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Like how he’s not even trying to help defending against Jeremy lol

  • Riddick

    What…Lin plays D? Better let b-s know.

  • HY C

    nah, his (tanking) mission today is soon to be accomplished – 1 down, 61 to go

  • IsabeliJane*17

    .. but that chocolate Iggy is trying to open.. that looks yummy.The chocolate I mean.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Why is Boozer playing with Lin and not Davis? Lin looks bad playing with Boozer and Kobe

  • BobbyH

    I like how Lin looked off Kobe. Good.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    This is what BS and Kobe want JLin to fail so that they can continue to feed the narrative.

  • Chipdip

    Good! He should continue to play one against 9 on offence

  • Singapore BB Fan

    BS plse call timeout…

  • MoominFloren

    I want Lin to shoot every time he gets the ball

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The Lakers is toasted in 3rd Q with Kobe ball.

  • Riddick

    lol…ya, I’d take the choc too. I just couldn’t get past Stallone looking so Joan Rivers like. lol

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ugh! If that shot got in!!!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Music to the ear!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • blubell

    Wasn’t he fouled?

  • Brent Yen

    So…the only meaningful time is only 12 minutes for Lin. The start 6 mins of the 2nd and the 4th Q

  • sport

    Wow first time hearing Lakers fans Boo…LOL NICE JOB BS!!

  • he protested but no call.

  • LW

    The Lakers are just so bad to watch now!

  • sws94

    yes but we can’t expect a call.

  • MoominFloren

    Really? LA fans, you’ve got my respect !

  • Alaingrvis

    the starters crap offense is rubbing off

  • dons

    Lin is back in, but why with Kobe, Booze, Swag? Not so good combo.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    BS is scrambling for a lineup that works but he will never find it with Kobe on the floor.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Wasn’t whistled.. sheesh.

  • Bearness

    Not even getting Price’s minutes.

  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    to share the blame.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Kobe is tired ….no D and Boozer is so slow….Swag is Kobe2…

  • sport

    20 point deficit of course!!

  • wandertheglobe

    blow out, Lin gets to play basura time to pat his stats

  • dons

    Wait until you see who starts 4Q, or shortly thereafter!

  • Rick Johnson

    Kobe kills ball movement, team play

  • Chipdip

    Great! losing by 20 points! Better line up today for the L.A. Losers

  • Bearness

    It was like that when Lin came in first time. AKA everyone wants to shoot line up.

  • blubell
  • BS playing Kobe for 29min already in Q3.
    Crazy min

  • sport

    Can BS just call it quits, bench Kobe for rest of game and let Lin and 2nd unit stat pad now?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    You hit it!! Kobe literally stopped playing when Lin is in….makes Lin looks bad…

  • sport

    Wow I think BS just heard me! He really benched KOBE! WOW!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kobe has the ball most of the time.

  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Well the shots will start find the bucket.

  • MoominFloren

    Go Lin! Stat padding all the way

  • dons

    Can’t win shooting mostly outside jumpers. One may get hot, but then the cold quickly returns.

  • sws94

    Lin’s unit looking better. Yeah, we want to see him score but he’s making things happen.

  • Brent Yen

    Like I said…the only 2 important 6 minutes

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Suddenly the flow gets better for the Lakers.
    Wonder why?
    Look at who is on the bench.

  • Brent Yen

    Scott?

  • joyce ward
  • JoeTeam

    10-0 run?

  • cali7

    I am waiting to hear the fire Scott chants from the fans.

  • Rick Johnson

    Kobe out 10 point run. BS better do something or Kobe will be embarrassed

  • Briiick

    Tanker-Bricker=Lakers

  • orLinaryjoe

    kobe?

  • sport

    2nd unit with Boozer playing better than starters! Surprise Surprise! Lin needs to take his shots though!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Price?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    He can’t quit now…he is the “Tank Commander” (someone here gave him this title)

  • blubell

    Jeremy with 3pts/3ast/3rbs.

  • Brent Yen

    Boozer just can not handle starters ISO-ly anymore.

  • Alaingrvis

    when kobe gets back this nice rhythm will die a cold death

  • Dorothy

    I just thought of something, BS lied thru his teeth about liking Lin in order to get this job, but he has no hesitation to destroy Lin’s career by lying about Lin’s D knowing this is Lin’s contract year. What a Jexk.

  • JW

    triple triple? nice

  • JoeTeam

    Love Lin’s IDGAF play style … just tuned into this 10-0 run and he’s not even trying. Just PGing. 12-0 run …

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    You are too late to pick up his antics!:-) Called him out during jerseygate:-)

  • Riddick

    There you go…glass is half full kind of guy. lol

  • Singapore BB Fan

    without Kobe … the ball moves…

  • into 12-0 run!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    and Kobe!

  • sport

    Lin still with 3 points X-X

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Don’t tell that to BS and KOBE!!!!!!

  • Chipdip

    Now Tank Commander will sit Lin down

  • JW

    Lin better stop doing anything. dont want him to get 666

  • sport

    Smart foul by Young!!

  • Promo Sports World

    How are his misses? Way off or just missing?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Common JLin get more points before you sit down.

  • sport

    Lin not shooting come on!!!

  • BobbyH

    A mini-Kobe on the court, keep chocking.

  • Dan Cohen

    giving up.

  • joyce ward

    Is lin doing anything?

  • dons

    But Nick seems one-dimensional in this game. Every outside shot along the arc is a good shot, he feels.

  • orLinaryjoe

    passing too much to swaggy black hole

  • blubell

    Nice save Jeremy!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Good riddance. Don’t let the door hit you on your way out.

  • Riddick

    lol…that would be a ‘bad’ sign, tho it can’t get any worse than b-s happening to him.

  • Brent Yen

    The precious 6 mins is about to over,

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    What is BS thinking now?

  • sport

    Lin so stubborn, always passing instead of scoring himself ><"

  • JoeTeam

    12-0 run as PG. Low key. Just gave Nick a save that leads to pints. Brining them back, but v controlled and not trying too hard except on D.

  • Promo Sports World

    Price in?

  • JW

    2nd unit better not get too close. or he will have to bring the starters in to tank.

  • MoominFloren

    Time to sit Lin?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    So, NOP starters vs. LAL bench…cool!

  • Dan Cohen

    The door won’t hit me.
    I know when a game is done for jlin.. it’s 4th qtr.. are you telling me they can win this? and lin have 20 points???
    If so you are illusional.

  • Riddick

    Is that by b-s directives?

  • JW

    starters back to bench

  • Brent Yen

    Am I seeing it correctly? already garbage time?

  • occupatio

    what a big snore

  • sport

    Lin made Davis miss with his defense!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    BS throws the game away for the 4Q

  • IsabeliJane*17

    What is illustional?

    I didn’t say they will win,but if you are giving up on Jeremy because he’s not making his shots., you’re welcome to do so. There might be space on Stephen Curry bandwagon.

  • JoeTeam

    I hope so. This LAL is the opposite of what it should be.

  • Dan Cohen

    This is when lin should say F it and pad his stats.
    His has no clue as to what he is doing to his averages and thus potential contract

  • Riddick

    Yup, b-s considers ‘garbage’ time right after 3Q.

  • JW

    ok. starters will be back.

  • sport

    Good! Lin gets to keep playing!

  • Briiick

    This is Lin, this’s why I like him, always playing for the win, not stats

  • JoeTeam

    I think he knows.

  • Alaingrvis

    i would of had better time sleeping then watching this

  • JW

    time for kobe to pad some stat to break jordan record

  • Promo Sports World

    You have to score jeremy but assists and rebounds were there

  • sport

    Kobe what do you think of BS now? XD LMAO! Have fun chasing MJ’s record with Ronnie Price and against those triple teams! Get used to your 14 point games while you’re at it!!

  • Briiick

    Coach, can I join the 2nd unit? I can watch Kobe score from there too.

  • JoeTeam

    No room on the Curry bandwagon … I have the seats reserved for my fairweathered friends ha ha.

  • MoominFloren

    So Lin is done tonight ..19m50s

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kobe,” hands me the ball”

  • Dan Cohen

    I edited my comment to illusional.. I tend to think much faster than I type..even though I’m a fast typer.
    Notice that I say I’m giving up.. but I didn’t say WHAT.
    You are interpreting or ASSuming that I’m giving on lin.
    But for this game, you are illusional if you think they can come back and lin have an awesome game.
    I’m giving up on this game because I konw there is no way he can get this usual numbers due to his limit minute. Might be better that you find out more before ASSuming, girl.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ok thanks. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It feels so good! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • MoominFloren

    I sincerely hope that the Great Lakers…opps Tankers, will lose 20 more pts in the remaining 4m

  • Brent Yen

    The ship is sinking LOL

  • Promo Sports World

    Just got to hope at this point next year he is playing for a team that values his ability….that’s it

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    BS is having the 1st team played garbage time.

  • sport

    Hey Titantic’s a popular movie you know! LMAO!

  • JoeTeam

    PFV Titanic.

  • JW

    feels bad for lin cuz he talked about wanting to finish game. but i am sure it would be for games that are closer anyways

  • Briiick

    Lakers + Kobe – PJ = Tanker

  • Singapore BB Fan

    BS called timeout when the bench beginning to hit shots…tank commander in action.

  • sws94

    He’s got to pick carefully. But it is really nasty on Scott’s part not to play him at least 27 plus minutes.

  • sport

    I’m going to be right, Kobe will end this game wtih 14 points! LMAO! he won’t catch MJ’s record at this rate with Price as PG! And you can Thank BS for it!!

  • BobbyH

    Good block by Holidays on Rice.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    What will BS say about his astonishing lineup!
    BS,”It works. Lin is sabotaged.”

  • Alaingrvis

    what kobe look like with out lin

  • David Kim

    I think the reason Lin not shooting much or not drive in is because Scott wants him to play like that. I think lin wants to score and drive in but he is not allowed to play like that.

  • sport

    Block on NOBODY! Holiday need to thank him for making him look good again!

  • cali7

    No matter how kobe tries to play it off like he doesn’t care about mj’s record playing garbage time is so transparent.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Oh oh! can’t wait for media interviews….see what BS has to say…the starters with Kobe looks bad!

  • Briiick

    Lakers 1st unit = Tank unit, tank driver: Kobe
    Lakers 2nd unit = Anti tank unit

  • Alaingrvis

    he played 20 minutes so who cares . he will have to be traded

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The new lineup results Kobe hitting his lows in scoring.
    Is this the lowest for the season?

  • sport

    Great Lin can’t even go in to pad his stats!

  • John Lee

    Thank you Jrue, nice block.

  • JW

    not sure why kobe not doing iso in this lost cause. what is the point then playing him when he needs extra rest for practice.

  • David Kim

    Yup

  • Alaingrvis

    yes

  • sport

    Awesome, they got what they deserved!

  • Brent Yen

    HArd to do with only 2 6min stint

  • JoeTeam

    Dan Cohen, illusional does not mean what you are trying to say here. Look it up. Anyway, be positive, this is no fun for everyone who’s a true lin fan.

  • MoominFloren

    I guess 20 min is the new PT limit for Lin.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Wonder what will he say about the effort and the focus?

  • roberlin

    Even Kobe’s gotta hate this new line-up. Has to work too hard for his points. And he’s going to score less than 20 points tonight.

  • JJ Hui

    I am so glad they are losing and it shows how stupid BS is!

  • sport

    Stats, passing MJ scoring record.

  • Riddick

    Pleeeeez let it be!

  • BobbyH

    If you don’t want to put Lin in G time, fine. At least put Clarkson in. BS is full of color.

  • JW

    i guess he is out. but that was the thing. he was not even shooting

  • roberlin

    It’s fine if Lin isn’t in for garbage time. Garbage time is for garbage players.

  • Briiick

    Yeah, he is driving a tank to pass MJ’s record.

  • David Kim

    I am so glad that lakers lost today. SCOTT DESERVE IT……HAHAHAHAHA

  • cali7

    So he is even more inefficient than usual? Payback is a you know what

  • Brent Yen

    Pelican did not play great…and this still is a blow out…

  • Promo Sports World

    Someone call Steve Nash….he knows what’s going on….lins team should ask Nash to be their mouthpiece

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Hey coach, how come your team is blown out by a team playing the 2nd night of a back to back?
    The Clippers beat this team by the same margin last night. What do you think when you play the Clippers now?

  • Bearness

    These games are becoming tortures to watch.

  • Alaingrvis

    they got blown out

  • Riddick

    b-s already sunk the ship…the rest of the team is treading water for their bball lives now.

  • MoominFloren

    But but but….. Price is the starter..

  • Chipdip

    Lakers has no coaches.

  • blubell
  • Love Lin

    Its soooo embarrassing 4 the Lakers..

  • IsabeliJane*17

    BS: Shuffling the rotation didn’t work… will shuffle again next game

  • Brent Yen

    So…I guess Sott will come out and say…that 2nd unit lost us too much points

  • dons

    not to pad stats, but to practice team play, even with swagger.

  • MomentousPetey

    ROFLMAO

  • MoominFloren

    How about a tough night for Price? How many pts Holiday scores on him?

  • sport

    BS being ignored by players lol.

  • Riddick

    Yaaaaaaay…b-s lineup change LOST…Lin closer to a NEW team…hoot hoot!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    How about Kobe the Byrant? Did he do any better without Lin?

  • CJSHYY
  • JW

    kinda stupid singling him out on this.

  • sport

    With Kobe scoring the least points of the season?!

  • joyce ward

    Not if he doesn’t get his points up.

  • sws94

    So only 3 points? What are his assists, 7 or so? Lin has to be more stat aware now, he’s a better player than all of these single point games and he has 2 0 point games. He’s got to look for his own stats now and have no respect for a stupid coach and just audition for next season. The Lakers are garbage and almost unwatchable.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Lakers this bad even Iggy has to throw up her arms! lol

  • sport

    BS your great plan for Kobe to score didn’t work, nice try though!! Can Lakers fire him now?!!

  • Brent Yen

    Move away Lin. even Kobe did not have anymore space to choke…

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Losing to a back to back team by double digits!
    Byron, you’re going to the hall of Shame.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    The results is the same anyway….Try benching Mr. Kobe…

  • cali7

    Well I’m glad la fans got to witness BSCOTT’S ineptness and/or stupidity firsthand.

  • Alaingrvis

    idk why people don’t know this but lin is terrible off the bench. why because he is a rhythm player. especially when the starters have no rhythm

  • John Lee

    Ineptitude.

  • joyce ward

    Thai is what makes me so mad about him sometime. Get over and move on. Boozer got benched, but he kept his point stats. Lin has to learn that this game is all about the stats game.

  • 311

    Access Sportsnet postgame for anyone who wants it. Don’t know how long feed will last:

    http://www.stream2u.me/watch/43788/1/NBA-New-Orleans-Pelicans-vs-Los-Angeles-Lakers.html

  • roberlin

    Well, on the bright side for BS, the Lakers only allowed 104 points. lol

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Change for the worse!

  • MomentousPetey

    his D was pretty good.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    BS using iPod shuffle for his rotations…

  • Briiick

    The tank captain fired 18 shots, and hit 6.

  • Alaingrvis

    kobe looked worse today… i wonder why

  • roberlin

    Who didn’t see this coming? Everyone except B.S.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    How long will Kobe support this coach?

  • sport

    Lin never learns that it’s all about getting his points even when he’s benched!

  • Riddick

    This Tankers team doesn’t want Lin to be good, so they’ll take terrible.

  • cali7

    Are you correcting my word choice or picking one? Haha.

  • Brent Yen

    At least after the scoring thing

  • roberlin

    because of the stupid line-up that allows defenses to gang up on Kobe with impunity. Still supporting BS 100%?

  • Promo Sports World

    He has to score 10+ a game with 4 assists and 4 rebounds….scoring 3 points is unacceptable in a contract year….come on Jeremy solid games ahead

  • Brent Yen

    He picked the hard way….whatever….let’s see how this goes

  • MoominFloren

    33.33%…..similar to Price career FG%…..what a great backcourt !

  • Dan cohen

    But has hamlet said ” intend is not important as outcome”:.. that’s what it means.. he knows..but not do.. doing is all it matters.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Hey don’t insult the Ipod shuffle! It is more efficient in shuffling music lol

  • blubell

    Sheer incompetence

  • joyce ward

    Not a good sign when the fans are booing the Lakers…

  • BobbyH

    What did you observe?

  • cali7

    If kobe scores a lower number of points each game this is going to take even longer to beat the record. Mercy

  • Arsenium12 .

    Boos very apparent in this video …

  • Guest

    Even my friend Mr.Cool lost his coolness and speechless about this BS.

  • Promo Sports World

    Effort and belief ain’t there and those tickets ain’t cheap

  • Briiick

    Will Kobe get rid of his yes-man coach?

  • MoominFloren

    details please

  • Riddick

    May be the right changes are coming…hope.

  • Bearness

    Right…. because Price did so much better after replacing Lin.

  • Dan cohen

    It is not fun..that’s why I’m p-ss off ..and it’s not helping and p-ssing me off that if ppl think I”m a troll!! smh.

  • roberlin

    If Kobe keeps scoring less, then BS isn’t going to stick to the line-up.

    Kobe is being really hurt by the no-offense line-up, and Kobe knows this. I don’t think Kobe is going to be supportive of this new line-up for long.

  • Alaingrvis

    in 20 minutes.with boozer and young there. in a slow offense. you asking lot

  • Briiick

    Kobe can’t blame Scott, he asked for it.

  • Promo Sports World

    Kobe will turn on Byron after he passes Jordan

  • cali7

    They never booed before this game. I think it is great. Next will be fire Scott chants

  • Riddick

    I don’t think bryant will change even after he reaches whatever record. He’s too fixed in his ways…even if it’s losing ways.

  • Love Lin

    The Lakers r hopeless, wonder Lin still thinks the team will make the playoffs w/o him on the starting? BScott’s rotation n the way/the attitude how Kobe plays r hard 2 help the team win the next games.

  • Jeremiah

    Lin is a bit more emotional than Boozer. Give Lin at least 1 day to get over the kick in the stomach

  • BenjaminZ

    I’m actually sick to my stomach not even garbage time is Lin allowed to play
    and seems like all Lin does is bring up the ball I’d rather Lin sit out until he’s traded

  • JW

    Laker show just talking about anthony davis. nothing to talk about for lakers guys

  • roberlin

    IT’s going to take Kobe longer to pass MJ with the new line-up. He’s going to turn on BS sooner rather than later. Book it.

  • blubell
  • Promo Sports World

    I know that’s why FTs matter now more than ever…can’t miss them

  • JoeTeam

    back problems ? Omer has one from last year he can sell to Lin.

  • Riddick

    What…no bryant this & bryant that? It’s dark in Tankers land.

  • BenjaminZ

    LOL yess with his big brother Boozer just enjoy the money

  • IsabeliJane*17

    No graffiti allowed on this site please.

  • sport

    He’s going to turn on BS with this new lineup! His plan backfired thinking Kobe can score more without Lin! Except Price is not a shooting threat!

  • BenjaminZ

    I actually like Bev now but Price i dont know man

  • Briiick

    I am afraid the worse thing than tanking is happening.

  • roberlin

    Lakers are turning into the Rockets before our eyes. Worse, because the team truly sucks.

  • Brent Yen
  • BenjaminZ

    They took the ball out of his hands man and he just got benched for unexplainable reasons
    He might be hurt a lil give him a break lol

  • sport

    That’s the best part! They can’t play well like the Rockets even when marginalizing Lin! BS thinks he can pull a Mchale! Wait until Kobe turns on him!

  • JoeTeam

    Only Lin Hill near the play. Nick totally lost looking toward crowd when shot goes up. Kobe fakes it by trailing in. What a terribly coached team.

  • BenjaminZ

    Thank you!

  • John Lee

    Assertive correction? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Briiick

    Yeah, any fan can see this lineup is not for winning games, but for shameless stat padding.

  • JoeTeam

    save himself – put up no garbage stats. Omer is smarter than we know.

  • MoominFloren

    huh?

  • sport

    Not even close to as bad as when Lin was with Rockets going 1 on 5 defense! He was Naruto several times!

  • John Lee

    Karma will bite in the rear, EVERY TIME.

  • MoominFloren

    Even as tough as Lin, I think it is reasonable to have at least 1 game break to be recovered….We all know Lin is soooooo disappointed from his prayer request ๐Ÿ™

  • sport

    Nah this isn’t Karma yet! Karma takes time to come around lol.

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Jeremiah

    Please stop saying that Kobe will turn on BS. How can he turn on his own puppet?

  • BenjaminZ

    fk me excuse my french

  • cali7

    Ineptness is a word, a noun. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • sws94

    That’s bad news, this lineup is a joke.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Your cat has fierce brows and I like it!

  • Riddick

    I’m going by 1 game at a time, since this noCoach is unreliable in even basic coaching skills.

  • MoominFloren

    Maybe the boo is not loud enough for him to hear

  • wandertheglobe

    Actually, he said, 10-15 games. They may go 0-15 at this rate.

  • sport

    Told you!! 15 straight loss here me come!!

  • blubell

    New thread.

  • sport

    Laker fans needs to boo louder and longer next game, BS’s old ears couldn’t hear them!!

  • John Lee

    Just looked it up, they both exist. Wonder what the difference is?

  • John Lee

    Karma has had practice, unlike Kobe, and is reacting faster than BS. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Riddick

    It takes him that long to come up w/another idea? smh

  • cali7

    Great. Now we can hear the Lakers fans boo the next 15 games. Hope the schedule has a lot of home games.

  • SamC89

    Because they’re trying to tank.

  • SamC89

    At least the LA media seems to be still pro-Lin.

  • JoeTeam

    he’s doing better than most people on the planet.

  • sws94

    This is from somebody named Ty Cobb, a moderator, on the REal GM Lakers site.

    You act like Lin + Davis is Stockton and Malone. The only thing that’s gonna happen if they play together more is the Lakers will get blown out by 15+ instead of 20+ a night.

    I don’t think there is one decent fair moderator regarding Lin on that site. Bunch of jerks. Him, Kilroy, Slava, all of them talk crap about Lin. I expected better out of Real GM.

  • JT

    Jeremy Lin:”This is one of the toughest situations I’ve been in since I’ve started playing the game of basketball”.

    Sooo…more than highschool, and not getting into the school he wanted, more than his time in the dleague, more than when he was about to be cut, more than his time in houston?

    Ouch.

  • daniel cohen

    I meant delusional. was choked up with anger at what is happening to even think properly.
    btw, I’m not graffiting. I’m speaking my mind and the truth and also answer your question after your snide remark against my harmless post.
    It is a shame and disappointing that this site has a moderator who abuses her moderating power.

    There is a reason why assumption does have the infamous word in the front because all lawyers will tell you that number 1 rule in all arguments is NEVER make assumptions WITHOUT any information backing it up or deducting from it because it will make you look like a donkeys’but. If you cannot take the heat that another commenter here is saying about you when it fact it’s true, then you should not be a moderator.

    I personally know that you actually wanted to ban me a while ago..thus your reply ‘thanks =)’ because I finally typed in something that is like swearing and justification for banning. But the fact is.. it is still part of a word in which certain letters are capitalized and you know you are being that when you made that assumption. Get on Stephen curry’s bandwagon? where did that come from?

    When you have a game thread up, it’s common sense that if something goes wrong ppl will go nuts and get frustrated.. moderators need to watch for haters..but not real lin fans who express their frustration without swearing or who cannot win the argument and therefore ban the person. If you don’t take that into consideration, the game thread is pointless and moderation is in question.

    I was testing out this site as a 2nd flavor to the original jeremylin.net. I already know it’s heavily moderated against REAL troll who are haters which is good..but didn’t know there are moderators who will ban or mistaken real fans because they can’t win the argument verbally with them. What’s surprising, disappointing and shameful is that if you are not saying Jlin is god, you are a troll. Wow, 1dimensional, not to mention it’s a shame to have a moderator who cannot take the heat that they are wrong. goodbye. One word of advise if you are moderating..NEVER reply..just ban it.. else you are saying it’s personal and thus abusing your power..esp when a female say it feels great to a guy..it’s more power to them actually. amen.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    You break the very first rule of this site: No name calling. You called me an “A**”. That deserves banning immediately.
