Will Kobe rest the game tonight? And will Jeremy be able to take advantage of the opportunity to show he’s the best PG for the Lakers

  • Allen Wayne

    Yeah!

  • Rick Johnson
  • CJSHYY

    As I thought… Good. Go JLin!!!

  • rookie75094

    YES!!! Let’s go Linsanity!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • real-dsb

    source? how do they know?

  • CJSHYY
  • rookie75094

    BTW … only after 2 games …Dallas sport radio is already questioning rondo’s fit with the mavs…. love it…. even if Jlin doesn’t end up with the mavs… I still love to see rondo fails… that guy just rub me wrong some how.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! I saw these two games. Mav played not as good as before the trade… they don’t need Rondo.

  • rookie75094

    I hope a long losing streak is coming for the mavs

  • CJSHYY
  • Yascar

    All I hope for is that Lakers play well. I don’t expect them to win but it will be a significant victory if they show heart and effort and play like a team.

  • real-dsb

    But that one’s unsourced too. For all we know, SQ was just repeating other unsourced tweets.

  • rookie75094

    looks like LA media starting to turn against kobe/bs..(About time.)

  • CJSHYY

    They won one lose one.. but needed to fight hard for the won. They also needed to play starters for long min bc their bench are not good now. Rondo can’t shoot & don’t think they really need his AS since Ellis can do it too.

  • rookie75094

    now their starters will have greater chance for injuries…. the rondo effect.

  • ok, I’m experimenting with the homepage so:
    1. the Latest Thread will be seen 1st
    2. Game Countdown is next
    3. Then Videos
    4. Then Sticky Post

    Let me know if this is better for mobile users or even laptop/PC users
    The main problem is many users can’t find the latest post easily.

    If it doesn’t work, I’ll switch it back.

  • Allen Wayne

    GS will get toliet-papered by the team Lakers.

  • CJSHYY

    It’s true this time. Check Lakers tweet.

  • rookie75094

    now the next good news I want to hear is Jlin starting again when kobe is resting

  • rookie75094

    I wonder if bs will use Pop’s reason for kobe DNP-CD .. OLD

  • Rick Johnson
  • gum

    I hear Ellington will start.

  • rookie75094

    all I want to see is Jlin allowed to finish .

  • 7iger

    Kobe not playing tonight giving me a reason to watch the game 😉

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! So I really think Mav made a big mistake to get Rondo.

  • CJSHYY

    The best he doesn’t show up otherwise he will be another AS coach on the bench.

  • If Lin is trusted as the floor general, he can lead the Lakers team to surprise a tired GSW team who played last night.
    But of course BScott and Kobe wouldn’t want that to happen since Kobe will look so bad.

  • rookie75094

    like I said before ..the mavs realy kicked the pooch off the balcony on this one…. it will not be pretty.

  • So Wayne Ellington will replace Kobe as a starter.
    Who’s the playmaker in this starting unit?

    No one can really create their own shots. Price can pass but not dribble-penetrate or ISOs to create offense for others.

    https://twitter.com/Lakers/status/547569538951159808

  • IsabeliJane*17

    No actual PG in this lineup? Prepare to be slaughtered.

  • CJSHYY

    I think 1st unit probably will not play long min today.

  • Sophie Paris

    Starters 8pts / Bench 65pts 😉

  • CJSHYY

    Price.

  • Brent Yen

    Lin will play 18 minutes. 4Q will be garbage time where Clarkson will play PG

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Like I said, prepare this unit to be slaughtered by Klay and company lol

  • Jeremiah

    Farce! The only reason to start Price over Lin was for Kobe’s selfish needs. If Kobe’s not playing, Lin should start. Well, one step at a time.

  • CJSHYY

    I hope so…LOL!

  • rookie75094

    with Linsanity 18 minutes will be enough for Jlin to go 35pts/12reb/20ast/10blks/10stls/0 tov… hehe

  • JoeTeam

    well. the mystery will be if Speights outplays Hill lol.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • Alaingrvis

    8 pts from where

  • Jeremiah

    Kobe is probably hogtied somewhere.

  • MoominFloren

    Genius move…..
    It’s gonna be the biggest hole dig by starters in 1Q in Lakers history!

  • Brent Yen

    As long as Rondo is no where near the Staple CTR….LOL

  • Alaingrvis

    like i said scott is an idiot atleas mchale realize lin was the only other playmaker so if harden was out lin started this idiot don’t get that

  • Brent Yen

    Let keep it that way for another 60 games or so…

  • Brent Yen

    You need to censor some of your words…lol

  • Alaingrvis

    he is what he is

  • Alaingrvis

    quack like duck

  • Brent Yen

    I know and that is irrlevent LOL

  • Jeremiah

    If Lin and the Lakers played well without Kobe, Kobe would be humiliated. We cant have that.

  • Alaingrvis

    is imbecile better

  • Jeremiah

    He may come wiggling and slithering onto the court at some point.

  • Brent Yen

    Scott will make sure it does not happen LOL. One game….maybe…..will be hard to do it against GSW anyway. Scott and the co are betting on that.

  • I would recommend ‘incompetent’ so it won’t insult one’s intelligence.
    But rather appropriate in his lack-of-accomplishment

  • Jeremiah

    Hey psalm, Did you see my post from the previous thread?

  • Sophie Paris

    Hill 1/7 Ellington and wes 2 desperate 3’s lol

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Can’t wait to see 0-30 for this starting unit in 1st qtr.

  • Jeremiah

    Now unleash Lin and we can still make the playoffs!

  • Alaingrvis

    riddle me this 5 player the the court all needing to be set up by other players. who scores. lol batman couldn’t figure that out

  • No sorry let me look later. Need to step away for a while

  • Jeremiah

    Nothing urgent

  • JC

    scott wouldn’t let that happen! Plus there’s mini kobe.

  • Alaingrvis

    this season is a wash if scott stays lin would do best by avoiding the lakers at all cost

  • JC

    Kobe’s not even playing, bs not starting Lin!!? So it’s about what? Fit? Defense? TO!? Hater????

  • JC

    I hope gsw nukes the lakers starters

  • JoeTeam

    The nice site on the net with editors! You know, that’s not a bad idea to have editors but we know yellow journalism pays http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellow_journalism

  • 7iger

    Told you BS will do anything not to start Lin. He is a true Lin hater.

  • BuzzerBeater

    No Bean today! Christmas came a day early!!

  • Alaingrvis

    beware of scotts the grinch who stole a season from lin

  • jolno

    So the Warriors are like a batter expecting a fastball but got a changeup instead. Kerr was openly encouraging Kobe to brick the Lakers to lose before last meeting and Kobe happily obliged with 34 FGA and -34 net rating. Now who should the Warriors focus on the defensive end facing this completely unoffensive starting 5? Kerr probably just told his players to forget about it and just play man-to-man defense instead lol.

  • 7iger

    He is staying truth to his BS name.

  • JoeTeam

    Fantasy basketball:

    Byron: Kobe you know I have to get you to 30 minutes and less than 20 shots, right?
    Kobe: Not really, but let’s see how they do against GSW
    Byron: GSW will be tough. Are you sure you want to sit it out?
    Kobe: Yeah, why not … let them have some fun with it.

  • MoominFloren

    BS wants to make sure Lakers get slaughtered by starting Ellington instead of Lin & Young. He then is able to justify that Kobe is sooooooo important to Lakers as a crime stopper “With Kobe, we are losing by 7 not by 30…….charmin is charmin….” He / Kobe hopes that people will chant “We need Kobe! We need Kobe!”

    That’s RIDICULOUS @#%!xyz

    I think Lin will have 20 minutes max as the game will turn into garbage time after 1st half……

  • rookie75094

    Rondo is copying Jlin playing PnR with Greg smith… how original…lol…I am convinced rondo is all show and no substance

  • BuzzerBeater

    ..and it was on that day that Coach Scott’s small heart grew 3 sizes, as he allowed Jeremy to play 40 minutes.

  • 7iger

    Never thought there is a day that I miss McHale a little LOL.

  • JC

    lol

  • sws94

    I think Lin will have to get decent minutes tonight, he may play big minutes if he plays pretty well and it is somehow close. I can’t imagine it being close but we’ll see what happens.

  • JoeTeam

    you don’t, it’s just nerve fibers misfiring from the pain, like getting your hand in ice bath and after a while you think it’s burning … a little lol.

  • winner

    No Kobe, no problem. Go JLin! Linsanity tonight.

  • Alaingrvis

    hope so

  • 7iger

    BS want life without Kobe to look as bad as possible what a BS.

  • Sophie Paris

    It looks bad with Kobe already anyway

  • Alaingrvis

  • 7iger

    I am pretty sure I know how I feel. BS get me thinking of McHale. He would start Lin in heart beat when Harden sit.

  • Alaingrvis

    if i only had a brain

  • Jeremiah

    Pardon?

  • 7iger

    Yes, but BS making sure to show people that Kobe is not the problem.

  • leeda harun

    just hope lin plays well because BS is BS.

  • Lymania

    I thought the game started already reading the comments. Lollllll~
    Anyway. I think it’s gonna be a good game. I think it’s not a coincidence that lin performs according to what I vote. He wants me to be the WINNER.
    I forget what exactly I voted for this game, but it’s something like 20pts. So~

  • Alaingrvis

    scott will make sure no he won’t

  • Lymania

    Instead, he wants to show people, he is the problem. 😀

  • leeda harun

    lets hope youre right again

  • LAJane

    LOL

  • Lymania

    Really?!
    Oh no~

  • Sophie Paris

    And Kobe can’t make a team win.

  • Lymania

    Give me some hope!~ lollll~
    😀

  • Alaingrvis

    i hope but it will be in spite of scott if it happens

  • Lymania

    Haha. Maybe the best comment of the day” small heart grew 3 sizes”…

  • grover chang

    TONIGHT WE ROLL OUT THE CHARMIN!!!

  • Lymania

    I like that you are such a dreamer like me!

  • Alaingrvis

    yep

  • KL

    We all know what would happen if Lin starts and gets his minutes. Scott is trying his best not to let that happen. Mission Impossible for Lin but Lin will prevail. Let’s go!

  • Jeremiah

    Not sure what the point of sitting Kobe is then. I could picture Kobe negotiating with Mitch: Ok I’ll sit out, but only if Lin doesn’t start. Mini Kobe is nowhere near big bad Kobe. At least Swaggy gets Lin a few assists.

  • Lymania

    Dont worry guys! I just put a spell on Scott. He can’t do it~~
    *jkjkjk**hope I don’t sound malicious* my spell was just to put him into sleep during the whole game…

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Lymania

    Hey~nice to see you and your info again!

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Alaingrvis

    yep

  • Alaingrvis

    lilard again wow 3 pointer to tie the thunder

  • Jeremiah

    But Swaggy is not even starting. He’d have to play those minutes w/o any break.

  • Alaingrvis

    yep you know it.if scott was smart lin and young would finish 2nd and 4th quarter but thats a big if

  • Jeremiah

    That’s a funny IF coming from you. 🙂

  • rookie75094

    Rondo rep for defense is a myth…. looked softer than charmin…. kobe would love to use rondo to wipe his you know what. ..

  • Arsenium12 .

    Thanks!

  • rookie75094

    The mavs getting slaughter again. .. I love it!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    LOL I like this, from the announcer ” if this is the season for giving, then Warriors understand that it is better to give than to receive..”

  • Brent Yen

    Announcers said it is bad that fans do not get to see Kobe tonight……I really disagree….

  • LW

    We want to see Kobe, but not like this.

  • knibb

    I WANT to see Kobe… on the bench.

  • Alaingrvis

    look at the starters

  • Brent Yen

    Young is going to play 44 mins…

  • Alaingrvis

    lol impossible

  • Brent Yen

    Lol

  • Bearness

    43 minutes? =P

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • LW

    PGCurry23.5 Price4.2
    SGThompson21.7 Ellington6.4
    SFBarnes11.1 Johnson8.8
    PFGreen12.8 Davis7.1
    CEzeli4.1 Hill12.5

    Total: 73.2 39

    GS vs LAL starter avgs tonight, it’s going to be a massacre!

  • Bearness

    I’m mildly surprised Kobe is sitting. But, I guess why not. They have -10% chance of winning against hottest team in NBA anyway. I don’t think this will translate into more Lin minutes though. I’d say 20-25 min.

  • Brent Yen

    Defense is actually better without Kobe…lol

  • Alaingrvis

    wes the best option lol

  • Bearness

    Isn’t it, always?

  • Carol Tiu

    Maybe Kobe asked BS not to start Lin and keep his mins down in exchange for sitting. They’re both in on this. I mean look at their starting five. What a joke.

  • Alaingrvis

    if you can’t score it doesn’t matter

  • Bearness

    He backed it up with a nice air ball.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol like i said wes the best option

  • Jeremiah

    Another quick foul Price please.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Best players on bench, is this a joke?

  • Brent Yen

    Faster = better chance..to score.

  • Hans

    Just atrocious…. wondering when will the best bench in the league come in?

  • Alaingrvis

    gsw going soft. stop playing around

  • IsabeliJane*17

    The problem with Warriors bigs is they’re NOT clogging the paint whenever Jeremy is out, thus that easy floater by Price.

  • Bearness

    5 minutes left in quarter?

  • Brent Yen

    Nice….

  • Alaingrvis

    gsw not taking them seriously

  • kauaiblue

    Jeremy doesnt give a hoot

  • sws94

    You know, they don’t look that bad in a way. At least nobody is ball hogging.

  • Brent Yen

    Kobe effect!!,

  • Alaingrvis

    a lot of other gsw player shooting not the main guys .

  • Brent Yen

    Exactly

  • Brent Yen

    This is GSW…I will take it

  • kauaiblue

    Linsanity tonight?

  • Alaingrvis

    gsw playing down to the lakers

  • sport

    Affected by bad trade there goes Mavs’ chance of winning.

  • sws94

    So far, they haven’t turned the switch. But they will.

  • Bearness

    They look bored, like they are running practice.

  • Alaingrvis

    lakers maybe able to steal this game but like i said gsw not taking lakers seriously

  • Bearness

    They’ll turn it up after half.

  • Jeremiah

    They’re on a BTB.

  • Brent Yen

    Great….Scott is graduall killing the ball movement

  • Sophie Paris

    Why not 🙂

  • kauaiblue

    Wow… how boring

  • sport

    GSW playing down to Lakers level no sense of urgency at all.

  • Hans

    in effect!

  • Alaingrvis

    lin in

  • sport

    Lin in!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    All I want for Christmas is Jeremy Lin 17!!!!!!

  • Brent Yen

    Nice

  • sport

    SMH, leaving Price in with Lin so he can’t handle the ball!

  • Brent Yen

    Game is fast…good

  • Alaingrvis

    lin not involved at all

  • IsabeliJane*17

    LOL Thompson just used Boozer as a screen to shoot over Jeremy…

  • blubell

    Price playing the whole quarter? Is he the new Kobe lol

  • Brent Yen

    This becomes a repeated scene

  • sport

    Lin hasn’t touched the ball at all…

  • Alaingrvis

    price the new kobe lol

  • MoominFloren

    why why why?

  • Chipdip

    Leaving Price there as PG, Lin is mismatched. Coach, smart move to destroy Lin. I get it.

  • Carol Tiu

    Nobody wants to pass to him

  • sws94

    Not yet, but the ball is moving pretty well until Young gets it.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Boozer sets good screens really…. for the opposing team’s guards

  • Dorothy

    It is by designed. BS and Kobe make sure no Linsanity allowed

  • sport

    Every coach does that to ruin Lin’s game, first started with Mchale!

  • Hans

    For the first time this season, the Lakers are playing team basketball for almost the entire quarter. Hopefully this would last the entire game. I am not concerned about Jeremy or anyone’s stats as long as they continue to play this way.

  • blubell

    Why does BScott overplay older players? smh.

  • 1mtoldman

    well obviously from the substitution pattern thus far lin has been reduced from the second string point guard to the 3rd string shooting guard (behind kobe and ellington) has lin even touched the ball since he got in the game?

  • sws94

    Somebody has to play all 12 minutes of the half. The second best player on the team (in Scott’s mind) in this game is doing it with Kobe out.

  • LW

    With Kobe not playing Lakers players must be feeling liberated!

  • sport

    Price has 5 easy assists already, if only it was that easy for Lin.

  • Jeremiah

    Except they must freeze out Lin.

  • blubell

    3!

  • MoominFloren

    OK…..This is the punishment of calling out Kobe….not allowing him play PG

  • Jeremiah

    yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Brent Yen

    Ball moved…..good

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Sacre is the only big aside from Davis willing to set a screen for Jeremy.

  • sport

    Lin for 3!

  • sport

    Thank You Sacre for passing to Lin!

  • sport

    Lakers are winning without Kobe LOL

  • IsabeliJane*17

    It’s not good… in BS’ eyes lol

  • Alaingrvis

    have to say it price is doing pretty good

  • blubell
  • cshot

    lol kobe is putting on his jersey right now

  • Michael

    Just started watching, Stu is so defensive against the Lakers stats being better when Kobe isn’t on the floor that it seems like he is rooting for the Warriors. XD

  • blubell
  • Chipdip

    BS is panicking now… Lakers don’t need Kobe

  • IsabeliJane*17

    This dude..man you gotta calm down on being a Jeremy fan lol lol

  • sws94

    Stu is over the top but Price is playing quite well.

  • Alaingrvis

    yea doubt it will last

  • Jeremiah

    Who will fight the crime?

  • cshot

    somebody pls tell me what jeremy is supposed to be playing?

  • Jeremiah

    10 pt lead!

  • Chipdip

    He is leaving Price there so Lin can’t take the glory; no linsanity tonite

  • sport

    No Kobe, Lakers leads easily against GSW. Problem is Kobe he can’t deny it!

  • Alaingrvis

    kobe- when batman finds out hes not needed

  • Brent Yen

    i am satisfied now….even they play like shxt for the rest of the game….

  • sws94

    what position you mean?

  • Alaingrvis

    sg price pg

  • cshot

    yes lol!

  • cshot

    nick young is the sg

  • Jeremiah

    Price has to come out some time. Right? LOL

  • blubell
  • Hans

    He’s playing within the system, surrounded by ball-sharing teammates, don’t worry!

  • MoominFloren

    Then what’s Lin playing? SF?

  • KHuang

    Warriors not the same without their best player, Andrew Bogut.

    When he sets screens, it’s like a double screen because Bogut is so big.

    Thompson and Curry don’t play their best without Bogut’s screens.

  • blubell
  • sport

    When Batman finds out he’s too old and needs to give way for Batman Beyond: Terry Maginnis

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Thompson had to settle to use Boozer as a screen

  • cshot

    looks like it lol

  • 7iger

    Ugly shot by Nick

  • KHuang

    What do Warrior fans expect?

    When the franchise center goes down in injury, the team simply is going to suffer big time.

  • Jeremiah

    Clarkson instead of Ellington??? Lin not allowed to be PG

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    The heck is this? Jeremy as 3?

  • 7iger

    LOL Clarkson

  • Brent Yen

    Game slowed down…

  • 1mtoldman

    its really sad poor old cheerleader robert sacre has to be the one to give lin a shot. on the other hand with out kobe the lakers 10 up on arguably the best team in the league (obviously gs not really taking lakers serious) and 8 players scoring with 9 assists on 14 made baskets. as far as laker fans go if yer not a lin fan and dont care how lin is used i mean what better evidence that the problem with the lakers spelled k o b e.

  • KHuang

    Heh heh, that’s going to happen occasionally.

    Lin does that to opponents too, picking defenders off each other.

  • blubell
  • Jeremiah

    Sacre is da man!!!

  • blubell

    Sacre finding Jeremy for 3 again 🙂

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Seriously.. either Sacre or Boozer needs to grow hair for easy identification.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA!

  • Jeremiah

    Mr. Davis

  • sport

    Another 3 for Lin!! Two 3s now!

  • blubell

    Charge!!

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy playing well

  • sport

    Sacre another assist for Lin’s 3s!

  • Chipdip

    Lin it ON!

  • Chipdip

    hahaha

  • Michael

    Arrrg I just saw that Violet Palmer was refereeing. Please no silly calls tonight.

  • Brent Yen

    Lin was wise to give up that shot…lol

  • cshot

    lol I’m impressed by lin and him bringing it even if he isn’t playing point guard

  • Alaingrvis

    wow laker don’t look old no more

  • Hans

    Another great def poss by jeremy. this is the Lin style basketball I’ve been looking for!

  • blubell
  • sport

    Wish Lin took that 3 when they got the rebound since he was wide open!

  • blubell
  • cshot

    he would have gotten blocked lol

  • KHuang

    The Warriors are not at full strength.

    Without Andrew Bogut, they’re “only” the same 51 win team that got Mark Jackson fired last season.

  • sport

    He just caught it and passed inside. Could’ve caught stepped aside for a 3!

  • 1mtoldman

    clarkson leading the lakers in shots per minute.

  • Chipdip

    Coach let Clarkson play to make it hard for Lin. No way. Go Clarkson Go!

  • Alaingrvis

    clarkson don’t look ready

  • 7iger

    Clarkson should have pass that one earlier

  • Dorothy

    BS does not look pleased even Lakers are winning now lol

  • Jeremiah

    Replace Clarkson with Ellington and let Lin be PG please.

  • Brent Yen

    Clarkson being a rook…..it is on Scott who did not play him more…

  • blubell

    Well, he is a rookie chained by BS.

  • Chipdip

    he is not. Coach doesn’t want Linsanity while Kobe is out

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy having the GALL to discuss with the ref about Clarkson’s foul… and I love it. He does it more this season.

  • blubell
  • sport

    Clarkson with the dumb mistake =/

  • blubell
  • blubell

    Linsanity!

  • Michael

    For the past 20 games I must have been watching everything on slo-mo.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    the J-Ed connection is still there…

  • blubell

    Basketball is fun again! 🙂

  • Carol Tiu

    Such a fun game to watch (w/o kobe)!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Blame your internet connection…. umm… lol

  • 7iger

    Uh oh BS and Kobe probably worry by now.

  • Alaingrvis

    i actually like watching the lakers is this coming out my mouth

  • Chipdip

    Everyone scores!
    That/……… is Linsanity!

  • Brent Yen

    Nick does not have a really good shooting mechanic…man that means he is very talented in term of his touch…

  • cshot

    dat lin steal

  • rookie75094

    the whole lakers team is punking both bs and kerr… LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!

  • sport

    Now this is fun team basketball! Can Kobe sit for rest of the season?!!

  • Chipdip

    BS is shaking crazy… he is going to get Price out to take over the PG

  • Promo Sports World

    Fun hungry play

  • Jeremiah

    Not to mention Kobe

  • Hans

    N.Young is such a bonehead……my goodness. he could be accused of murder for heart attacks of the old school folks…

  • 7iger

    It is weird that Lin miss all the easy layups but made all the 3s

  • grover chang

    Rush Hour 5. Harder to play against a team vs one guy.

  • rookie75094

    that is a given

  • Brent Yen

    Because you are in sleeping mode?

  • 1mtoldman

    can there be any question the back to back of kobe’s nine for 30 and 9 turnovers and the loss and no kobe and all players contributing and a big lead against a team that even without bogut has won all its games when he didn’t play except memphis. washed up hero ball or team ball? we report you decide.

  • sport

    He’s fearless and there isn’t a shot he doesn’t like, Lin can use some of that.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’ll take it…

  • blubell

    Horry: Win one for Bryant
    LOL.

  • Promo Sports World

    Jlin hooping hard

  • blubell

    Lin to Davis!!

  • Chipdip

    Linsane Pass!

  • Alaingrvis

  • Jeremiah

    Don’t be a tiger-fan! Tiger.

  • blubell
  • Job713

    Lin to Davis! Haven’t typed those two words in the same sentence since preseason

  • Promo Sports World

    Coach is a fool to not see what’s happening

  • blubell

    Tissue? Charmin, perhaps? lol

  • sport

    Lin to Ed Davis woot!!

  • Rick Johnson

    They should lock the door of the plane to Chicago before Kobe gets on.

  • Jeremiah

    Finally!!!

  • 7iger

    So a Tiger can’t be fan? hehe

  • Promo Sports World

    Jlin time

  • blubell

    Alley OOOOOOP

  • Jeremiah

    Go Go Go!!!

  • 7iger

    Just saying that is unusual for Lin

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He’s a Garfield… don’t be a Garfield fan,Tiger…

  • Alaingrvis

    refs

  • IsabeliJane*17

    These refs….

  • Jeremiah

    always something LOL

  • blubell

    Of course… refs…

  • Job713

    BEAUTIFUL ALLEY OOP!!!

  • Promo Sports World

    Y out coach

  • sport

    Lin Davis LOB OMG haven’t heard that in a long time!!

  • LAJane

    Price in. smh

  • 1mtoldman

    lakers minus kobe: 9 players scoring, no one taking more than 6 shots; 14 assists on 20 made baskets. g.s. has 3 assists total in this game.

  • Jeremiah

    Uh since preseason?

  • blubell
  • 7iger

    BS Ref

  • Job713

    Starters just need to keep the lead…

  • sport

    Lin always get that stupid unfair charge that robs his score!

  • grover chang

    Let’s go Ronnie. Stay aggressive. Let’s have the lakers win together minus Kobe of course.

  • Love Lin

    OMG! Rubbing my eyes.. 12pts leading w/o Kobe, this is the game we r waiting 4.. Lets go, Linnnnn!

  • Michael

    Kobe must be cheering the team on like mad from the bench.

  • LAJane

    Price in again because those are BS’s set minutes…or because J is doing so well?

  • Jeremiah

    If only Price would foul out.

  • blubell

    Jeremy is out and the crowd is not as loud 🙂

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Because BS wants a Price-Davis alley-oop

  • LAJane

    in his dreams

  • Dorothy

    because Lin was hot, not allowed

  • SamC89

    Lin called called for an offensive foul (bad call I think) so rest him now just to be safe.

  • rookie75094

    price did have that one good spin lay up

  • Brent Yen

    So was that really an offensive foul?…

  • cshot

    please give jeremy a blake griffin or de andre jordan

  • Job713

    Nah, waiting until Lin committed a dumb mistake (charging).

  • blubell
  • cshot

    he would be an all star in a heart beat

  • rookie75094

    no… not even close…racist refs stike again

  • Carol Tiu

    Because of Lin-Davis connection, not that Lin offensive foul.

  • blubell
  • sws94

    Didn’t look like one to me, but I’m biased. I guess it could go either way.

  • Alaingrvis

    dwight was too stubborn to play pnr

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Give him Tim Duncan or LMA

  • blubell
  • Jeremiah

    duh!

  • sport

    No it wasn’t, Lin’s been getting those unfair charge calls at the rim!!

  • Alaingrvis

    to be honest he has always had great dunkers around him.

  • Chipdip

    Linsanity Rules!

  • 7iger

    Pretty sure someone will put it up later after the game.

  • Jeremiah

    Lin highest at +14!!!

  • occupatio

    cant believe scott took lin out after that run. what an idiot

  • LAJane

    So true. Can’t stand it that he’s sitting at the moment

  • 7iger

    Lin with 2 fouls anyway and you know I one of the BS hater =)

  • Job713

    So who is the locker room alpha with Kobe Out?

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    Curry play two now…

  • sport

    Ronnie Price has 3 TOs, Lin with 1 TO yet Price is the starter and you never hear BS criticize his his boy!!

  • Yascar

    Lakersground is fun tonight. Take a peek guys!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Freakin’ Jordan Hill needs to stop those jumpers!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so irritated already

  • Brent Yen

    If price hustles like that every game as a backup…I will root for him too

  • BuzzerBeater

    Look at the balance of shots taken by everyone! So beautiful.

    I want this win so bad, even moreso than the Rockets one.

  • Carol Tiu

    I’m surprised GSW is missing all those baskets

  • sport

    Stu raving about Price’s hustle LMAO, Lin hustles way more!

  • Brent Yen

    When u r leading…it is easier to make shots..

  • 7iger

    Without Kobe GSW don’t really know how to play

  • cshot

    he needs dunkers that are willing to pnr

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I have no problem with Ronnie Price… I have every problem listed on earth with Byron Scott until he gives Jeremy back his starter role and plays him more.

  • Alaingrvis

    even young is passing

  • Rick Johnson
  • 7iger

    The Asian guy can’t be that hustle.

  • rookie75094

    it’s call the Jlin effect!!!

  • Jeremiah

    Lakers have a great team! Who knew?

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    Me too. How is that possible? LOL whatever

  • SamC89

    I think Young overall is a willing passer. Just that sometimes he forgets too.

  • Love Lin

    Thx 2 Kobe.. Merry X’mas!!

  • occupatio

    this guy is on my ignore

  • blubell

    I don’t like this guy but he is right.

  • JJ Hui

    Kobe, please do the whole team a favor, be a hero and RETIRE EARLY!

  • Job713

    Better “Pure Basketball” than the Spurs game?

  • blubell

    LOL. bad memories?

  • sport

    We finally see some fastbreaks and Lobs with the OLD MAN Kobe resting! Can he rest for the entire season?!!

  • LAJane

    sharing is contagious

  • Carol Tiu

    Lol their game plan disrupted.

  • Jeremiah

    Byron, penny for your thoughts.

  • Rick Johnson

    Advanced stats have been saying they were a good team without Kobe. Now we see.

  • blubell
  • Hans

    Kobe is actually doing the teammates a favor by not sitting on the bench. God works in magical ways

  • blubell
  • Love Lin

    Hows that possible? Hv been wondering.. 🙂

  • Alaingrvis

    im predicting gsw will step it up. by far the worse they have played zero effort. hope lin led this team i put an emphases on team to the finish line

  • Rick Johnson

    GSW are on a B2B and their 3rd game in 4 days.

  • PPP

    BS will be getting sn earful fom kobe very soon.

  • occupatio

    stil annoyed that scott took lin out after that terrible offensive charge call on lin. lin was why they had that huge run

  • Rick Johnson

    Would prove Kobe been killing this team.

  • 1mtoldman

    10 players scoring no one taking more than 9 shots; 19 assists on 27 made baskets. subtract one kobe and a new equation appears. (gs only has 7 assists for the half) lakers shooting 56% could there be any more contrast between this game and the last kobe 9 for 30 9 t.o. game? but i would assume its only a one time thing and that kobe washed up hero ball will be back fro xmas day still rest of players making a statement….

  • Jeremiah

    The second half should be even easier as the fatigue of a BTB starts to bite the Warriors. 15pt lead! (no jinx :))

  • Rick Johnson

    If Kobe not distorting team I think Lin would go back to starters.

  • 1mtoldman

    yeah kobe xmas present to the lakers.

  • Kin Choi

    Team must be psyched for the first taste of true freedom.

  • BuzzerBeater

    All these guys are willing passers.
    You can tell by their interviews…the most vocal being Lin, but also Carlos, Hill and even Swaggy hoping for ball movement.

    Unfortunately some turn into chuckers because of Kobe and I cant even blame them.

    If Kobe’s gonna brick away 30+ possession, they figure they better shoot or Kobe’s just gonna take the shot for them.

    Gosh can he just “rest” for the remaining time of this contract please!

  • Jeremiah

    BS not letting Lin be PG.

  • LAJane

    I’m so annoyed I can’t breathe. I’ve been thinkin’ what with his “Lin is a goner…DNP-CD” mantra that KHuang had finally been driven a bit around the bend….but I think I’m in danger myself. Free Lin!!!

  • Sophie Paris

    Yea their only chance to make the playoffs! ^^

  • 1mtoldman

    that would be a different kind of hero ball.

  • sport

    Hopes Lin can start the 2nd half.

  • Alaingrvis

    btw 15 points is nothing for gsw. be ready for a push

  • occupatio
  • SamC89

    Kobe is still a good player and often demands a double team (even at this age). If he would be willing to limit his play time (25 minutes) and willing to give up the ball, he would still be a great asset.

    But that’s a big IF.

  • Carol Tiu

    Has anyone seen BS laughing heartily tonight yet like how he does when kobe is playing & jacking up those shots with the team losing?

  • Jeremiah

    We’re not home free yet. Byron still messing with Lin. But if second half is as good as first, this game will be scandalous for Kobe.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol all lins assist came from davis

  • blubell
  • Sophie Paris

    Now that they figured they play teamball without Kobe lol

  • Chipdip

    19 assists in the half… that explains all. Kobe, are you driving to Staples Centre now?

  • CJSHYY
  • IsabeliJane*17

    Davis probably ecstatic on the inside, he’s fist pumping in his soul..

  • SamC89

    I’m a little OK with it because we were up by so much and it’s safer to save Lin for the second half. Especially since we know how easy it is for the Warriors to go on a big run.

    If the refs are going to call that ticky tacky foul then who knows how they might screw over Lin later.

    Not sure what Scotts intentions are, but I can at least be ok with that call.

    What will piss me off is if Lin doesn’t play more in the 2nd half.

  • grover chang

    Half time worth and horry say Lin and Davis have a good connection three times.

  • Carol Tiu

    BS made sure to put a stop to that.

  • 7iger

    Fat chance

  • CJSHYY

    Thanks for the infor…:)

  • Alaingrvis

    actually davis sat at the same time as lin

  • occupatio

    that chick ref is in the game. always bad calls against lin when shes in

  • LAJane

    I think it’s already scandalous for Kobe, and this is the cherry on that sundae. But BS is still determined to shackle Jeremy. How are guys like him so entirely mean spirited.

  • blubell

    I know. He actually showed his true color the day before he went off on you.

  • Kin Choi

    One game is too small a sample size. They should sit Kobe for 20 games to get a more accurate assessment of the difference.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    They’re late on the J-Ed connection wagon

  • Sophie Paris

    Don’t dream. bs staying on his bs lineup

  • Brent Yen

    Given GSW firepower…this game can be a L in no time

  • Kin Choi

    The usual 3rd quarter collapse?

  • occupatio

    they could still lose this if BS pulls his usual crap

  • 1mtoldman

    but the contrast with that last game is striking and also the last game kobe finally started taking hits from fans/media for that terrible solo performance ; and then the example of what can be without him coming back to back is pretty dramatic.

  • Alaingrvis

    its all about how scott reacts

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Given Bogut is injured, this will separate Steve Kerr’s coaching from Mark Jackson’s.

  • Alaingrvis

    as well as a blow out they get hot its over

  • Jeremiah

    Up-vote infinite # of times!

  • Brent Yen

    Yes…

  • blubell

    Wonder if Kobe is sulking/moping or feeling proud that team is playing well…

  • occupatio

    what doesnt appear in the stats is how lin totally changed the momentum. he had a string of good plays, on both ends of the court.

  • grover chang

    Glass at least half full tonight. I enjoyed that whole first half. Lin and his teammates played beautiful game and supporting each other. Lin smiling again. If golden state makes a come back that is to be expected. That half was a blessing.

  • 7iger

    At this point It is not about win or loss it is fun to watch.

  • Jeremiah

    L for Linsanity?

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    If they win, hats off to Kerr. If they lose, Bogut should be 200% healthy before playoffs.

  • Brent Yen

    Yes sir…and hill was still out of position …

  • grover chang

    Amen

  • Jeremiah

    Yeah untie Kobe for the 4th quarter. LOL

  • Carol Tiu

    More likely sulking/moping.

  • sws94

    I don’t know if the Lakers win this game because I think that Kerr will make big adjustments. But, if they can hold off a GS run and their picking it up on defense, they have a chance. They have to keep doing what they were doing the first half, and maybe play with more intensity.

  • Chipdip

    Kobe just checked in… OH NO! (just kidding…. haha)

  • Brent Yen

    Yes…

  • occupatio

    GSW got overwhelmed by the momentum shift. it wont be like that in 2nd half.

  • blubell

    Don’t scare me like that 😛

  • BScott wants only 2 headline from this game:

    “BScott inspired teamplays in Kobe’s absence with balanced scoring”
    Or
    “Lakers tried but fell short without Kobe”

    BScott will make sure Lin doesn’t have great stats to claim the title of best PG to embarrass him.
    Guaranteed!

  • Rick Johnson
  • Jeremiah

    Planning for his imminent retirement.

  • Brent Yen

    Most,coach will ask players to slow down and reduce the number of possessions…but given LAL is the team we are talking about,,,they better just cheat on the pace and crank it up

  • Chipdip

    hehe… GSW’s secret weapon tonight … NOT

  • blubell
  • grover chang

    They both hustle, both guys on the low end of the pole with their faith in God sustaining them. I pray price and lin support each other. The real enemy on this team is Kobe.

  • blubell

    Jeremy to Davis: Magic

  • Bench plays at Half-Time
    Lakers 28pts vs Warriors 10 pts

  • blubell
  • occupatio

    cant believe lin only played 11 min so far. f scott

  • 7iger

    without Kobe everyone shoot at ease.

  • Brent Yen

    Starters played ok…I guess that is what would happen

  • spiderman

    Scott’s a real piece of work

  • blubell

    Boozer only played 9

  • occupatio

    that was a frustration foul by GSW on hill

  • rookie75094

    and.. the punking continues….hahaha

  • It’s part of his agenda not to make him look bad to choose Kobe as PG.
    If Lin blows up, his reputation goes out of the window!
    So predictable

  • Brent Yen

    Hill completely lost the clock

  • SamC89

    Also there’s the possibility that the Lakers don’t want Lin to be too desired by more teams so they can re-sign him for cheap.

  • rookie75094

    Jordan hill got bailed out by the guy with the mole on the head

  • got bailed right there with the foul

  • blubell
  • Carol Tiu

    Everything going wrong for GSW and going right for LAL.

  • Brent Yen

    Curry…m…

  • Alaingrvis

    can’t last

  • Ellington with TO trying to play PG

  • occupatio

    this offense is diisgusting

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Warriors – no Bogut
    Lakers – no Kobe

  • Brent Yen

    Because they let hill to make the read

  • Carol Tiu

    Yep, curry just had steal and basket then another 3 pointer immediately after.

  • Brent Yen

    Need a time out

  • occupatio

    u know how i feel about that

  • SamC89

    BS needs to put Lin in quick or else they’re going to lose the lead.

  • Promo Sports World

    Get Lin in

  • Price got Curry-ed!

  • David Kim

    Curry schooling Price…

  • LAJane

    How is it that so far BS has got Price playing more minutes than anyone else.

  • Chipdip

    Send Lin out to stop Curry

  • rookie75094

    put in Jlin now bs…idiot coach

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Lakers seriously need a playmaker NOW

  • Alaingrvis

    luck never last. theres people scoring shot they haven’t hit all year

  • 7iger

    He is the new Kobe in BS eyes

  • Jeremiah

    You just know Lin could seal the deal given the PT.

  • blubell
  • sport

    Wow Steph Curry single handedly bring his team back!

  • LAJane

    he’d rather lose than do that

  • grover chang

    Man… Who is warrior #30. That guy is unstoppable.

  • occupatio

    scott needs a timeout and subs

  • occupatio

    SO FRUSTRATING WATCHING THIS

  • spiderman

    better let J in before they catch up

  • sport

    Put Lin in now!!

  • Jeremiah

    Price had 2x the min of Lin

  • David Kim

    Oh Curry really shoot well….

  • blubell
  • LAJane

    of course!

  • JC

    No don’t put Lin in, let curry shoot the light out of the bs pg

  • blubell
  • occupatio

    attention whore

  • Jeremiah

    Compared to when Kobe plays?

  • Briiick

    change side

  • Alaingrvis

    lol 10 point game

  • SamC89

    Lead down to 10. Guess BS wants a “challenge.”

  • Brent Yen

    Haha

  • David Kim

    No Lin No win

  • LAJane

    LOL. You hate that guy as much as I hate BS.

  • occupatio

    30 min into the game and lin has only played 11 min without kobe in game. yes, MORE frustrating

  • blubell

    Great job BS.

  • JJ Hui

    Bs keeps Price too long and now the lead gone!

  • Brent Yen

    Ellington will be gassed in 4q

  • occupatio

    lakers cant win playing halfcourt offense. byron is so stupid

  • Jeremiah

    Boozer but no Lin smh

  • Chipdip

    BS wants the Warriors to come back ! Still sitting Lin

  • occupatio

    i dont hate the guy. i dont bother is all

  • blubell

    Jeremy should be in NOW.

  • Brent Yen

    Like I said….Scott asked to slow down…wth

  • blubell

    probably got a text from Kobe

  • sport

    Lin still not in SMH.

  • SamC89

    Damn, with how Price is playing now BS will be “justified” for keeping him in.

    The problem is that this is Price’s ceiling. Is Scott really blinded or is the FO trying to devalue Lin so they can sign him for cheap?

  • Brent Yen

    No more lin?

  • Alaingrvis

    wipe this game out its fluke like

  • LAJane

    When Price has his hot streaks like this Jeremy’s gonna be sittin’

  • IsabeliJane*17

    HAHAHAHAHAHAH Warriors announcers were like, “Ronnie Price is not this good. Usually verages 4 points a game.”

  • Jeremiah

    Is Curry helping Lin to get rid of Kobe?

  • occupatio

    okay price is playing whole game now bc of that 3

  • LAJane

    Thank God for small favors…

  • blubell

    There you go. Price will play the whole quarter. Jeremy gets yanked out when hot… yeah, thats fair… smh.

  • Alaingrvis

    this game is fake

  • Jeremiah

    Holy moly. Now even Price wants Kobe gone.

  • Carol Tiu

    Klay Thompson normally makes those 3s and Ronnie Price normally doesn’t.

  • KHuang

    When Jeremy has hot streaks, Jeremy’s been a’sittin’.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Warriors not putting much effort to defend Price..

  • Promo Sports World

    Coach is the worst

  • sws94

    Price gets hot. I guess he’s a streaky shooter for a quarter. But I hope Byron realizes it is for a quarter only.

  • Price got hot with 3 threes .. Byron must be smiling wide
    But credit him for making 3s

  • Chipdip

    Yes, so un Lakers like

  • Alaingrvis

    lakers just got hot cant use it on kobe. its so fluky. player hitting shot they’ve missed all year

  • Brent Yen

    Price just curried Curry

  • blubell

    If Jeremy did that, he’d be yanked out.

  • SamC89

    Well, at least Lin is happy. Which is great to see him like that.

    I’m going to trust Lin. If he’s happy, then I’m OK. I don’t think he feels really threatened by Price and perhaps he knows more on what’s going on behind the scenes. Oh well.

  • Chipdip

    Lin just cheers genuinely for every teammates even he got limited minutes!

  • occupatio

    nice shots by price. hard to root for lin-less team tho

  • LAJane

    I really have to remind myself and repeat that like a mantra….trust Lin.

  • Jeremiah

    Yeah lets just get the win anyway.

  • 7iger

    Cause not the teamates it is BS.

  • yes, because Byron’s auto-sub is so frustrating.
    And he wants Price to outperform Lin. No doubt about it

  • sport

    Agree!

  • Job713

    Price just benched Lin for the rest of the game with that 3. Nice to see him get excited about it though.

  • Hans

    Com’n guys, the guy is a career journeyman, can’t we just be happy for his moments today?

  • spiderman

    not threatened by Price — a sign of REAL confidence

  • sws94

    Lin will play. Let’s stay rational here.

  • KHuang

    No because this means THE END for Lin.

  • Brent Yen

    I am

  • blubell

    Price looking at 30+ minute game finally.

  • grover chang

    Lin really has a big heart. He is happy for his team even for the guy the coach put ahead of him. Proud of Lin.

  • KHuang

    He IS being rational.

  • sport

    Not when Lin is unfairly benched with his starter role taken away!!

  • occupatio

    guy gets to play to redeem himself always. lin, is out with 1 mistake that wasnt even a mistake

  • yes, Lin is the consummate team player!
    Good for him to set examples

  • Michael

    Maybe but is it a tad bit harder to heat up when Kobe monopolizes the ball. Plus they are actually playing transition defense.

  • Promo Sports World

    Don’t care what anyone says here Ronnie Price gets too many minutes

  • Brent Yen

    GSW still let price open…

  • KHuang

    Of course. Let the scrub shoot.

    Even scrubs can hit wide open shots.

  • Promo Sports World

    Now sub

  • Brent Yen

    Kerr knows…

  • Jeremiah

    Lin will have at the very most 23 min.

  • Promo Sports World

    Give ronnie price a statue

  • occupatio

    I HATE SCOTT

  • sws94

    No, he’s not. Lin is in.

  • grover chang

    Yeah Lin is in!

  • ok, Lin is in with 1:30 left in Q3.
    Let’s go, JLin!!!

  • blubell

    Jeremy not playing PG

  • spiderman

    Far from over, but wonder how Scott will explain a win without Kobe

  • JC

    Gsw gave up I guess

  • Brent Yen

    LAL playing street ball now

  • Promo Sports World

    Take these mins jeremy and shine

  • Sacre’s air-ball turned to assist to Boozer. wow..

  • Jeremiah

    Yay!!!!!

  • Promo Sports World

    Yes

  • JC

    Price!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Play of the Balds… lol

  • KHuang

    It’ll be under 20.

    Scott’s still doing his DNP CD plan.

  • Lin and the bank shot!!!!

  • blubell

    Clutch!

  • SamC89

    Just shoot the lights out Jeremy.

  • Brent Yen

    Hahahaha wth..I definately will take that

  • Jeremiah

    when you’re hot you’re hot

  • Alaingrvis

    i am officially saying this is a lucky game won’t ever happen again

  • LAJane

    Good! He got a shot in before the Q ended.

  • rookie75094

    kobe is crying himself to sleep tonight… hehe… get the charmin ready kobe

  • Lin knew he needed to make an impact.
    And he called the bank shot! 😀

  • sport

    LOL bank shot by Lin while falling down!

  • Jeremiah

    Fine just to get rid of Kobe!!!

  • Rick Johnson

    GSW announcer “he missed it so bad it banked in” stooges, LOL.

  • cshot

    kobe now lacing up his shoes, putting on shooting sleeve

  • occupatio

    i think he meant that bank

  • sws94

    Lin’s handles look different in this game. Like there’s more skipping around and change of direction. I like it.

  • I am The Jason

    This game is being played beautifully. Kobe needs to sit out for the rest of the year.

  • Michael

    Will a Lin Bobble-head do?

  • grover chang

    Lol. When did they open the bank. Nice shot jeremy!

  • sport

    No it’s not a lucky game GSW on back to back, and no Kobe to chuck 20-30 shots with worst +/- defense in the league right now!

  • Jeremiah

    Get the F out my way. I got this!

  • yes, since Kobe will come back and never rest again!

  • Hans

    It’s not Price’s call to be starting over Lin. He’s maximizing his chance to earn his next contract, give him a break. Blame Scott for the poor rotation and min distribution.

  • occupatio

    is byron going to let lin close the game?

  • sws94

    They are getting breaks, but they are also playing together and with confidence in each other. It isn’t all luck. Plus, GS just can’t sustain any momentum.

  • Jeremiah

    Ya think?

  • Alaingrvis

    i wish it was closer then it could be said lakers play better with out kobe. but now its just lucky

  • sport

    Wasted Lin’s assists! SMH!

  • LAJane

    That shooting sleeve is for flingin’ more than scoring.

  • Briiick

    Scott tried to show that Price is way better than Kobe, good job Scott !

  • occupatio

    playing with more effort cuz u dont have to stand and watch kobe chuck all day and can actually touch the ball — thats not luck

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Every time Boozer gets the ball that chart of his screams materializes before my eyes….

  • Alaingrvis

    those shots yes it is

  • deesee5

    doubt it. I don’t think he’s gonna let Lin play the whole 4th.

  • Jeremiah

    100-75!!! (oh well)

  • LAJane

    LOL

  • spiderman

    Bring Davis in soon

  • SamC89

    ARGH! That would have been sweet if he made it.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Why basket?!?! Why!?!?!?

  • deesee5

    I know right. At least Lin is shooting more

  • occupatio

    david lee came out to double lin before the play even started

  • 7iger

    beautiful!

  • LAJane

    I’m gonna try not to go there. Got to stop sending my frustrated negative energy wafting anywhere in Jeremy’s general direction.

  • 7iger

    Should we call them Spurs Jr.?

  • deesee5

    The basket is racist.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    NO.

  • blubell

    Nice floater rookie 🙂

  • sport

    Clarkson can score, can be better if he gets rid of his rookie nerves.

  • Brent Yen

    Hill has to leave…or play with Kobe…

  • rookie75094

    curry is completely clamped down by Jlin

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    lin need to just get in double figures with this lucky game. will need more games to show kobe negative effect while on court

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Can they trade Hill?

  • Carol Tiu

    No.

  • sws94

    He should, Lin’s minutes are low. He should bring Davis in now and get more look at the Lin/Davis connection.

  • occupatio

    hes on the flight right now. might make it back in time

  • sport

    Agree, you can tell Hill is unhappy for being bench this game and not getting his minutes. Both Kobe and Hill needs to go!!

  • Brent Yen

    Yes

  • Great defense by Lin!

    Stepped out for a TO that time.
    No room to shoot the previous 2 possessions.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Make it Mitch!

  • deesee5

    More like coming off the couch

  • Briiick

    Scott: Price >>>>> Kobe

  • rookie75094

    the bench should finish this game…it’s a blow out

  • Hope Lin will score or assist before 6min.
    Otherwise, Byron will bench him

  • spiderman

    Bring in Davis… any day now

  • Jeremiah

    Did anyone predict we’d blow them out w/o Kobe?

  • occupatio

    nick is such a hog. what a snore

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Had a chance to win – yes
    Blowout – not really

  • SamC89

    I’m more shocked that Price leads the team in points and assists!

  • occupatio

    lin’s job is just to give to others to score. they dont run any plays for him. just curls for nick

  • Curry biting his fingers .. or picking his teeth LOL

  • Alaingrvis

    lin has missed a lot of drives today weird

  • blubell

    bad habit either way lol

  • sws94

    Lin is cold around the rim tonight. I guess some nights are just like that.

  • Job713

    Should be at least extra 6 points on those missed drive.

  • occupatio

    i hate that disgusting habit he has

  • he tried hard to score.
    He knew Byron will bench him if he didn’t look like he made an impact

  • David Kim

    I just hope Scott just let bench finish the game.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Hmm a grown man biting his fingers?

  • SamC89

    Ouch, those misses… but we know that one of Lin’s “flaws” is that he doesn’t play as serious when the game isn’t on the line.

    But at least his assists are great!

  • David Kim

    nice pass that Price can’t do….

  • Wooooo.. Lin’s assist to Boozer!!!
    That might be enough to let him stay in the game

  • blubell

    Vintage Jeremy assist 🙂

  • sws94

    Beautiful assist by Lin.

  • Jeremiah

    BS better not!

  • sport

    Lin needs to score.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy should be like a vintage wine… the older it gets the better it becomes. I’d drink anytime. 🙂

  • blubell
  • LAJane

    There are worse bad habits….:)

  • I think LeBron had that issue before but cured himself

  • deesee5

    Ohhhh yeah. He’s having a good game thanks to that RACIST BS for putting Lin back on the bench, and that RACIST basket for not letting the ball in when Lin shoots!!!!!! #sarcasm #good4price #becauseBSthinksthepriceisright

  • blubell
  • Michael

    Lol

  • sws94

    I think it is just a touch is just a bit off tonight. The one he scored on was taken away with a “questionable” call.

  • golfhacker

    Freaking Stu says Lin “only” has 8pts and 5 assists. He’s only played 19 mins, idiot.

  • Alaingrvis

    this game reminds me this year is a wash. it really don’t matter

  • grover chang

    I love boozers personality. He was like ahhhh s,t after that wicked no look pass from Lin.

  • Job713

    At least recognizing he’s have a good game.

  • sws94

    He complimented Lin, said he played better than the stats.

  • That’s 16pts/10ast PER36.

    Stu is just biased

  • occupatio

    nice to hear stu give lin props. tho ‘pretty good game’ is an understatement for what he did with limited minutes and role.

  • SamC89

    The lead is too great that Lin isn’t playing as intense. But his assists are great.

  • Job713

    Has Lin ever played 36 min this season yet?

  • grover chang

    What? They are up by 20 points. Looking for your own points just for the sake of yourself is a Kome mentality. I’m a fan of linsanity not KoMe.

  • occupatio

    this tallking up of ronnie rice
    /roll my eyes

  • deesee5

    He’s scoring assists! #goodenuf4me

  • Everytime Boozer tried to pass, he made TOs.

    2 TOs already

  • SamC89

    Ooo, need a stop. I want Lin to keep his +/- at least.

  • Promo Sports World

    Play defense

  • deesee5

    Lin with that James Harden defense. #shouldhaveputhishandsup

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Somebody should give him a taste of his own medicine and scream at him,”AAYYYYYYY!!!!!”

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Promo Sports World

    Court vision legit

  • Nice penetration by Lin to get Boozer fouled.

    Hockey-assist if Boozer doesn’t make FTs

  • rookie75094

    stu just jinx booze..azz

  • blubell

    What foul?!

  • Promo Sports World

    Play defense

  • occupatio

    lin generates so many ‘free throw assists’. too bad doesnt show up in conventional boxscore

  • occupatio

    was that the chick ref?

  • sport

    Lin always get this ticky tac fouls!

  • blubell

    Young being Kobe.

  • Promo Sports World

    Nick Young needs to chill

  • spiderman

    bring in Davis…. any time now

  • Alaingrvis

    lol boozer

  • occupatio

    lin doesnt make himself available for others to pass to. its annoying.

  • golfhacker

    Yep, Violet Palmer.

  • Alaingrvis

    boozer hs 5 tov

  • Chipdip

    Boozer is tired…still not replace with Davis? You really a true BS coach

  • SamC89

    Damn 10-0 run. There goes his +/-. Now I want Lin to score hah.

  • Jeremiah

    He’s a loser sometimes

  • sws94

    Davis would have made that shot. Boozer doesn’t finish as well as Davis. Lin did everything right on 2 plays that Boozer didn’t finish.

  • occupatio

    grrrr. shes such a hater or just totally incompetent.

  • sport

    Lin passing way too much right now that’s why he’s getting those predictable TOs!

  • Alaingrvis

    that wasn’t a tov on lin

  • sws94

    Nothing wrong with those passes, Davis would have finished.

  • deesee5

    Tim Duncan should be a wine. The older he gets, the better he becomes. But I still wont drink 🙂

  • Brent Yen

    Boozer oh wel

  • she has a history of not favoring Lin, I think

  • grover chang

    Oh oh c’mon lakers don’t ruin a great effort. Lin, please give us one more run.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Refs bias against Lin no doubt

  • Jeremiah

    And Davis is supposedly a starter.

  • occupatio

    lin pnr is more efficient than nick shooting contested long 2s all day. byron is so stupid.

  • Alaingrvis

    lakers waching

  • SamC89

    Damn, now I’m a little nervous. It’s like they’re playing not to lose now instead of playing to win.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Where is davis

  • Why is Ed Davis not in the game with Lin?
    He’s still perfect in shooting, right?

  • spiderman

    Scott’s brilliant rotations again. Leave out the guy who’s 7-7

  • occupatio

    he is not allowed to play with lin much.
    rim protection is also not allowed

  • blubell

    BS

  • 7iger

    Young goes Kobe.

  • Promo Sports World

    Guy doesn’t coach

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He can’t take those perfect J-Ed connections. Hurts him in the eyes

  • SamC89

    Alright, that was a good hustle by Price.

  • The guy is 7-7 for goodness sake.
    BS is clueless

  • deesee5

    OMG BOOSER

  • Promo Sports World

    Boozer doing horrible

  • Alaingrvis

    lakers ball watching

  • occupatio

    nice hustle by price

  • rookie75094

    boozer is blowing so many Jlin assists…argghhhh!

  • deesee5

    That was a beautiful play by Lin. Too bad it goet boozed

  • BScott is losing his mind.

    Or he has an agenda indeed

  • Job713

    I think the team is so used to Kobe watching at the end of the game they don’t know what to do…

  • sport

    Lin needs to take some shots instead of wasting his assists on Boozer!!

  • occupatio

    takes them forever to set a screen for lin. boozer is esp bad.

  • Promo Sports World

    Lins handle has improved

  • Brent Yen

    He did not

  • grover chang

    I don’t care how they win or who the hero is. Just finish this or all the good is wasted.

  • blubell

    He’s 3-10 tonight

  • Alaingrvis

    iso iso iso

  • occupatio

    lol

  • sws94

    Nick is a poor closer. That was a bad shot.

  • occupatio

    so lin beat his man then pulled back. i dont get why he does that

  • Alaingrvis

    so it isn’t kobe or kobe hs set it deep in their brains

  • 7iger

    Pass to boozer was the right play. some boozer manage to air ball.

  • Jeremiah

    At least sub in Davis for Sacre.

  • This “Price spearheaded defense” is getting annoying.

    They showed Price with Lakers 11 steals. But Lin and Price has 3 steals each!

  • rookie75094

    won’t be a blow out but still a win and Jlin get s to finish

  • sws94

    Yes, his handles look way better tonight.

  • Brent Yen

    Only 3 seconds left…I guess it was ok

  • cshot

    ok nick young stop. we don’t need a kobe

  • Guest

    Lakers shocked that they’re leading. Panic has set in

  • Promo Sports World

    Haha but seriously his crossover is lower and his right to left dribble a lot better

  • sws94

    Byron’s mistake was not to put Davis in with Lin.

  • Promo Sports World

    Have to justify things

  • Brent Yen

    It is just like shooting…you are going have good or bad nights..in terms of ball control

  • blubell

    Young is chucking up shot like Kobe.

  • occupatio

    scott’s idea is to put lin in to feed nick mostly, or hit big men for jumpers. sigh

  • Jeremiah

    Yep we got a Young Kobe

  • SamC89

    YYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Clutch when it matters.

  • blubell

    Clutch!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    thank god

  • Rick Johnson

    Who’s Kobe?

  • Promo Sports World

    Game over

  • Lin for 3333333333!!!!!!!
    YEAHHHHHH!!!

  • Jeremiah

    OMG

  • sws94

    That’s our boy. clutch Lin returns.

  • I am The Jason

    Lin just saved this game

  • Nitron

    Yeah !!!!!!!!!!

  • deesee5

    Lin with that clutch play. Double digit score. We good now..

  • spiderman

    It’s okay. Let them run with that Price nonsense

  • blubell

    See, Jeremy likes game winners too 🙂

  • Job713

    Back to boring Kobe ball on Xmas. Book it.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Game ovah. Thank you for making me hungry Jeremy Lin!

  • sport

    Finally Lin with a 3!!

  • occupatio

    long 2 right?

  • rookie75094

    broke a 16-0 run by the ws

  • Chipdip

    Haha… Lin it up!

  • LIN with Nail-In-the-Coffin!

  • sport

    Nope it’s a 3!

  • occupatio

    sacre’s left arm tattoo says 信念 i guess he is going for ‘i believe’

  • grover chang

    Yes. He still got it. In your face Kerr

  • occupatio

    oh i thought his foot on line

  • Alaingrvis

    lol don’t look now

  • Chipdip

    BS won’t pick up any calls after this game…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Hmm seems like Warriors got in more 3 point shooters

  • He just needs “in Lin-Shu-How” tattoo on the right arm LOL

  • sport

    It’d be crazy if BS allows GSW to comeback with an OT!

  • occupatio

    no one told him that 信念 is a noun, not a verb.

  • sport

    GSW playing foul game to shoot 3s and get back in the game!

  • rookie75094

    racist refs won’t call foul for Jlin but call it for price

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    Boozer hurt the team down the strecth

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ooh 7 Lakers in double figured points, including Jeremy… sweet.

  • not going to happen since he put Price on the floor now :]
    Very predictable BScott

  • Jeremiah

    Glad they made it close and exciting toward the end. NOT

  • occupatio

    boozer is usually a net-negative, regardless of his stats

  • occupatio

    the ball stopped moving in 4th quarter. so boring.

  • blubell

    So did Young.

  • Lakers beat #1 team in the NBA .. WITHOUT Kobe.
    #NoCrimeFightingNeeded

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    lucky… want to see more games with no kobe to see the truth

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That shot of Jeremy and Stephen talking at the end of the game… he really got some genuine friends from Warriors and Knicks.

  • rookie75094

    I am out…happy holiday everyone

  • SamC89

    It happens to even the best of teams when they are up so much.

  • spiderman

    Scott likes Price’s fart

  • occupatio

    the best basketball i saw tonight happened in 11 minutes. the rest was whatever.

  • Have a great holiday indeed :]

  • Jeremiah

    Ya sure?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    To be fair, the number 1 team needs their big man to stomp teams come playoffs

  • sport

    Doesn’t help that Lin wasn’t taking shots and kept feeding him!

  • blubell

    Jeremy’s 11 minutes. Mini Linsanity.

  • grover chang

    Great game. Everyone played, shared, supported, contributed, had fun, and won. They looked like a team tonight.

  • 7iger

    Young became Kobe in 4th qtr.

  • blubell

    So does Stu.

  • Alaingrvis

    sorry too fluky. if it happens a few more times maybe it will get more attention

  • sport

    Not really but people were standing around and Lin wasn’t assertive enough and needed to score first and pass second!

  • LW

    Kobe played a major role in this big win over GS!

  • Great to see normal basketball games again :]

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    not for the whole game

  • 7iger

    He should sit out more.

  • David Kim

    Robin Lundberg‏@robinlundberg
    The Lakers are a significantly better team without Kobe on the floor. It really isn’t debatable.

  • Carol Tiu

    That warmed my heart.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    This image reminded me of my very first cellphone – a Nokia 3315! I had more than enough forwarded messages with graphics like that lol

  • Brent Yen

    He said he will put this out every time lal wins

  • BuzzerBeater

    Ryan XD

    Without Kobe.. this is a team. Wow.— Ryan Higa (@TheRealRyanHiga) December 24, 2014

  • blubell
  • sport

    Not a great game for JLin wish he scored more, passed too much towards the end especially to Boozer.

  • grover chang

    Kobe plan backfired just like it did for harden. Kobe sat out the unstoppable gsw game thinking they have to lose. NOT. Harden would sit out clipper games and Lin with the rockets would win. LOL.

  • it’s also on B2B game .. but I’m sure Kobe would find a way to lose this game if he played

  • BuzzerBeater

    blu how do you post tweets?

    I post the entire thing from “Embed” and it posts all broken.

  • true, and tired legs too after B2B game.
    It’s nice to see teamball again :]

  • MomentousPetey

    He was doing the opposite of what Kobe WOULD do.

  • sport

    Only partially, towards the end it became stagnant again.

  • BuzzerBeater

    Yeah I wish he’d ended with more points.
    The basket just wasn’t cooperating today!

  • JoeTeam

    well, you know how you feel, and I’m saying McHale is not better than Byron if not worse.

  • sws94

    But a solid game. He played solid defense, his handles look better tonight. He made a clutch 3 in crunch time. He didn’t finish around the rim as well as usual, that was the only downside.

  • joyce ward
  • blubell
  • khomphuong2

    Just one victory, but let's see if it moves Byron to build a team instead of a shrine to Kobe.— KEVIN DING (@KevinDing) December 24, 2014

  • 7iger

    LOL

  • Alaingrvis

    if i was coach i wouldn’t play kobe in b2b as well as fast tempo teams like gsw where we are better without him

  • Jeremiah

    Kobe must be thrilled

  • Right click on the timestamp (i.e. “10:39 PM – 23 Dec 2014” above) to get the link
    Then copy-and-paste

  • blubell

    Lincarcerated for no reason…

  • JoeTeam

    splash … cold water bucket from the Phils lol.

  • LW

    Although he has just 11pts but he nailed the coffin for GS with that 3. He is always clutch!

  • Jeremiah

    Shrine? No a crypt.

  • BuzzerBeater
  • IsabeliJane*17

    I like the comparison of the rest of the Lakers not named Kobe as prisoners. Jeremy is their version of the biblical Joseph when he was thrown in prison. He became the prison leader.

  • BuzzerBeater

    I did it! Thanks psalm, always so helpful 😀

  • 7iger

    How about a shrine to keep Kobe there in place for fans to worship instead of playing ball again?

  • JoeTeam

    he pushed it really hard, … rocked the 2nd unit 28-10 to set the tone to put GSW’s winning streak down.

  • LOL

  • deesee5

    Before I check out, lemme do my impersonation of PFV on this win….

    wwwwWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo WHOOP WHOOOOP WHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! I LUUUUUUUUUVVV EETTTTTT!!!!!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I rather throw boiling, scalding water lol

  • Acbc

    More like a mausoleum!

  • JoeTeam

    Hill was the cause for that first GSW comeback, with I think Curry scoring 3s and so one. He sort of just stopped the fast play.

  • You’re welcome :]
    My pleasure!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    A columbarium is appropriate

  • KL

    Jeremy’s always going to be up against a system that is stacked against him yet somehow manages to produce magic. I have no more doubt and will support him even with his limited minutes and opportunities.

  • blubell

    Taj Mahal 😛

  • hm, good question.
    I don’t think so either

  • blubell
  • ehm.. I’m afraid to ask LOL

  • Jeremiah

    Prediction: from now on whenever Kobe plays, Lin will get more minutes than when Kobe sits so that Lakers have a better chance to win with Kobe.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • blubell
  • LW

    They play liberated alright! Rejuvenated from breathing fresh instead of stale air.

  • 7iger

    Seen like everyone have fun at the expense of Kobe.

  • LOL :] good one

    But why would PFV love ET? 😀

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    J-Ed Davis alleys hurt BS eyes….

    I’m gonna throw up…

  • blubell

    What a snake…

  • blubell

    Make sure to use Charmin to clean it up.

  • LOL for a second I thought the real MJ made the tweet

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Yeah head of the snake, some harmless snake…

  • blubell
  • jolno

    Yes, the snake that deceived Eve!

  • blubell
  • 7iger

    Come on, you can’t be that blind to mistake a worm for a snake.

  • Alaingrvis

    game too fluky

  • Alaingrvis

    expected

  • jolno

    However, BS would be the first one to say the number (this game) indicates that Ronnie Price is a better player than Jeremy Lin. What a double-faced liar.

  • 7iger

    Seriously, I am officially take McHale over BS.

  • golfhacker

    So we are going to lose by 21 on Thursday?

  • knibb

    After he plays Thursday, I KNOW how I’ll FEEL…

  • 7iger

    It means I will not watch that game. Who would want to watch a blow-out loss game?

  • Chipdip

    BSis the best coach of the NBA, he just beat the num `1 team. He is the Head of Smaug

  • blubell

    Throwing up? lol

  • Did he just say Price is the head of the Black Mamba?
    I guess Kobe is just the tired snake body then

  • blubell
  • sws94

    Wow, he said that. Way to go Kevin!

  • 7iger

    Uh oh Kobe will not happy.

  • kauaiblue

    Lol… now thats pretty bad coaching

  • knibb

    I’d run out of Charmin too…

  • Acbc

    BS using the Mchale playbook against LIN.

  • How could BScott deny Kobe’s poor on-and-off Net Rating and still be a respectable coach?
    He’s clearly thinking people can’t use Google

  • 7iger

    Then use Scott to wipe it.

  • kauaiblue

    Zinger!

  • KHuang

    “Crazy?”

    Hey, Byron Scott is describing himself correctly!

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy: “Happy Holidays and peace to y’all!”

  • kauaiblue

    Lol

  • KHuang

    When Lin was routinely having games better than what Price did today, Scott was criticizing and demoting Lin.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I think I should be jealous of Ed Davis now…lol

  • Jeremiah

    Take heart though. Things are looking up.

  • JoeTeam

    I’m referring to ppl asking posters to edit their own posts like an editorial team. That’s journalism, vs incendiary journalism (yellow journalism … follow the link … it’s the scourge of media and journalism, but ppl love it for some reason because it’s trash reading.)

  • blubell

    Yeah, lets not waste Charmin. lol.

  • knibb

    Not sure Scott can do the job…

  • Look at who got 1 out of 3 steals to spearhead the defense, too!

  • blubell
  • a longer version of Lin’s amazing alley-oop to Ed Davis!

  • 7iger

    If you are using Scott to shine the tank then it sure will do the job.

  • Jeremiah

    Kobe may be in worse shape than anyone suspects.

  • blubell

    Love the part where he talks about Ed 🙂
    Just like Linsanity, he’s crediting all his teammates.

  • kauaiblue

    I used to love scott… hes just another azz racist yes man…

  • BuzzerBeater

    Im sorry but these Kobe tweets are cracking me up

  • Trust me.
    You don’t want to be Lin’s “guy” 😀

    More like Lin’s “gal” haha..

  • blubell

    HE didn’t say Ed is my girl so… 😛

  • Jeremiah

    Great way to go into the Holidays.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’m jealous of the attention he’s showering Ed lol

  • “Freeeeeeedom!” LOL

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    Lin drew 3 defenders on that play.

    Those alleyoops don’t happen unless Lin siphons defenses away from his teammates.

  • Jeremiah

    How will any of them face Kobe on the plane?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Point taken. I’m reeling in the IJ green-eyed version now… haha

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    not sure if you noticed it, but it was clear Scott was saving Lin for the entire 4th because he knew he needed a calming force at the end there and Lin cam through with the 3 to end the 5+ mins of no scoring.

    Clarkson was good, but he was lost sometimes and did you notice Jeremy calming him down in the first half by talking him down from a bad mistake.

    Price was ok. Big deal here was the team Lin-brand of bball won, and Lin was a solid PG backbone. 28-10 2nd unit to blow the game wide open, and LAL never lost the lead. It got gut to 10 when ball slowed down 2nd half and Curry got hot.

    Curry tonight reminded me of Jackson days last year. When GSW were down, it was iffy and curry would get hot. Maybe without bogut, but really, there was great team play under the basket and I’m not sure … well, ok GSW would have gotten a few in the paint.

    If Bogie had been there, the game would have been closer and Lin would have come in the 3rd to have to bring the lead up again.

    Finally, to I think Brent and others … Kobe’s bricks and TOs = over 30 good possessions I agree. That’s how games are won.

    Can the Busses please retire Kobe on Christmas?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    At least the “D” wasn’t silent lol

  • blubell

    Awwwkwaaaard…

  • JoeTeam

    whoa … oppressive Kobe outed for sure now!

  • JoeTeam

    wow, JLin’s friend’s out the truth too … cool cool cool. Plausible deniability for Lin … aw, my friends are just taking about my post game interview lol.

  • I think by saying “Ed’s my guy on the right spot”, Lin just indirectly said,
    “Only Ed truly understands me.”

  • blubell

    But Jeremy blew up the tank tonight.

  • Jeremiah

    Kobe the slave-master.

  • golfhacker

    Maybe his ego.

  • Chipdip

    Santas, please make my dream come true… retire Kobe please

  • Correct!
    Lin’s such a threat in breaking down D to free up Davis inside :>

    LA will be hungry for Lin-Davis PnR now! Yes….

  • SamC89

    Lin’s biggest problem is that when the game is easy, he tends to slack off.

    The Lakers lead started and grew after Lin was subbed in and he started to play very aggressively.

    But by the time he was subbed back in the 2nd half, the lead was high enough that he just didn’t play as aggressively as he did before. It was only near the very end when GS was closing in that he turned it up again.

    That’s definitely something Lin should try to work on, but even the best players are like that.

  • blubell

    In case you missed it. Jeremy has a new handshake with Sacre, Boozer, and Clarkson

  • Chipdip

    What Lin said at last post game interview was so great. Hope the Lakers sites will play it non-stop.

  • Jeremiah

    Hey Mamba! We missed you! (not)

  • 7iger

    Uh oh less minutes for Young.

  • grover chang

    That’s good

  • “Kobe, here’s a pillow to help you rest for a week” :>

  • JoeTeam

    ha ha Brent … Lin did not mention Hill being anywhere right …

  • blubell
  • knibb

    Young should stop imitating Kobe, too much iso IMO

  • SamC89

    I guess when he and Davis finally start together they’ll have one.

  • That’s the “Escaped Prisoners” Dance .. yes?

  • Chipdip

    That BS coach won’t play Davis and Lin together much. Why? why… why…. BS!

  • blubell

    At the end of the vid you can see BScott didn’t like that lol

  • 7iger

    Celebrating out of jail.

  • BuzzerBeater

    The guy speaking “there’s not a ton of offense with Kobe out”

    mwahahaha, little did he know.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • yeah, he clearly was disgusted by the excessive celebration on his right side :p

  • Jeremiah

    That’s a good thing!

  • LAJane

    I was spinning in freaked circles in the first half with so little Jeremy time, but as I tried to calm myself down the thought did come to me…how can Price have soooo many minutes…is BS really going to play him for the entire game? Can’t be…maybe…maybe he’s going to give Jeremy the 4th quarter? Didn’t dare really think it…but your comment is great to hear. It seemed like it was purposeful, didn’t it? So hard to know. Is BS a hater? Dim? Or just always playing the angles for his own best appearance?

  • blubell
  • If they lost, BScott would’ve used that against them.
    Now he can’t blame the happy prisoners. Yeah!!

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    The only Lin played the entire 4th is because the other guards were GASSED.

  • 7iger

    SMH

  • LAJane

    Well, well, well. Strong language. Do Kobe’s teammates smell blood in the water?

  • blubell
  • LW

    BS comments are getting more and more boring!

  • LAJane

    Humph…he did say he liked them pissing on the hydrant…

  • joyce ward

    I am loving Kevin Ding. he is the only journalist telling it like it is about the Lakers…LOL

  • JoeTeam

    no, Byron gets credit. He knew he needed Lin’s experience and steadiness. Price is only touted for the Kobe pandering. If and as the kobe problem is solved, Price will not be as elevated. I strongly believe Byron was saving Lin to run 4th Q for crunch, and you can see it worked. Lin needed to be there to keep the team together.

  • 7iger

    You mean more and more dumb down?

  • Brent Yen

    Said a long time ago. If Lin can take five 3s….his %age will lock at 40% I think it is true.

  • BuzzerBeater

    Nick masks all these type of comments with jokes but he’s also an advocate for ball movement over KoMe ball.
    Yeah he chucks sometimes but never to Kobe’s level and he at least does it with decent efficiency.

  • blubell

    He is fair. No hype.

  • joyce ward

    He is sounding like a politician. He had better be careful, kobe might fire him.LOL

  • joyce ward

    Nick Young is just………………enuf said.

  • LAJane

    I’m going to try to hang in there with you… 🙂

  • blubell

    4s? That’s beyond Linsanity 🙂

  • joyce ward

    I am glad I was wrong that Kobe didn’t play. Who would have thought the Lakers would beat the Warriors. I love it. I can see the media outlets tomorrow about what a better team this is without kobe…LOL

  • BuzzerBeater

    he aiight, i dont mind him much.

    He had the most FGA tonight with 13 but that’s still just one third of what Kobe would’ve taken. I can live with his level of chucking XD

  • blubell
  • joyce ward

    Yep

  • Jeremiah

    As the official prophet of JLin Portal (hehe) let me say this. Today was a crucial first step toward The Return of Linsanity. But Kobe still holds his evil sway upon the Lakers. To get full fledged Linsanity, we will need to get Kobe completely out of the picture: ie Retirement.

  • BuzzerBeater

    Look at Serena ‘mirin Jeremy.

    Everyone’s so happy 😛

  • JoeTeam

    Well, it became clear to me when BSc let the team run until about 1.5mins in Q3 because the team was doing ok. So you ask yourself … why skip Lin’s minutes, he’s getting cold. He shot those 2 3s, so it’s not as if he played badly. He made some awesome passes, and 2nd unit was 28-10 first half. So, only plausible reason is he needs a win to prove the point to owners and Kobe. BSc relied on Lin and Lin was there leading this jailbreak quietly, but the need to seal the win. I knew Jer would have the 4th 100% as soon as he checked in, unless it continued into garage time 20 pts up. As it happened, Byron and LAL needed Lin.

    The only thing I would have liked is for Price to give Lin the ball on the dribble out, out of respect. And, also, I wished GSW had fouled Lin instead of Price on that 2nd to last possession because Jer deserved the stat pad for his dutiful control of the game tempo.

  • Brent Yen

    I am all with you….let hope for the best

  • Brent Yen

    Lin’s interview….better than his Coach’s as always

  • LAJane

    He’s cute and messy, like an untrained puppy.

  • blubell
  • golfhacker

    Maybe the national outlets, but not the local outlets. Better than nothing.

  • blubell
  • CJSHYY

    I like that bc this can sure to Buss family you can really let go of Kobe day by day until 2016. No need to sign him for extend contract. LOL!

  • JoeTeam

    yeah, I know it’s hard to give BSc credit, but he gets it too like the 7 over 10pts and the entire team spirit and effort. I know swag, booz, lin had something to do with it, but byron too. It’s a team win. He gets cred for saving Lin to close the game out, and I believe the 3 to end the 5+ min scoring drought was the dagger. GSW had the momentum until that point.

  • knibb

    Jeremy should run for governor after his playing days are over.

  • Jeremiah

    Thanks Brent.

  • blubell
  • SamC89

    First Asian American President?

  • spiderman

    gorgeous Serena

  • KHuang

    Friggin’ please.

    This is one time I don’t agree with Lin and would criticize him right to his face.

    Kobe Bryant is NOT the Lakers’ best player. He’s actually the worst.

  • knibb

    Two terms too!

  • blubell

    Gorgeous Jeremy 😛

  • joyce ward

    She is looking at Lin like she is in love…LOL

  • Jedi

    Gorgeous people in Hollywood. Actually it’s great that Serena seems to really like Jeremy. It’s so important to have staunch allies in the media.

  • sws94

    Long overdue. Lin is a true leader, you saw it how he talked to Clarkson tonight after he made the clear path foul.

  • JoeTeam

    Look, if BSc, Worthy, TSW, everyone won’t say the obvious, why should Lin be cannon fodder? Let the fans revolt and Kobe will phase out. 10% down in low viewership is a loud voice, and I hope fans keep that noise up!

  • KHuang

    Oh, I’m giving Byron credit.

    I am still pissed that Lin plays well under 30 minutes and played as many as he did today only because Bryant was injured.

  • spiderman

    Lin being his gracious self

  • blubell

    No… I don’t want Jeremy involved in filthy politics.

  • sws94

    Yeah, that’s nice to see.

  • JoeTeam

    Yeah, that ticks me off too because Lin could to top assist and top scorer. Tonight everyone was hot. How about Ellington – that was beautiful. Ed D 7/7 … feasting at the rim mostly.

  • joyce ward

    Somebody posted on twitter that when lin was on the bench he was happy because he was actually coaching the 1st unit and calling the plays..LOL

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    she always has that hint of adoration i know right?

  • knibb

    Maybe he can use Charmin and Scott to clean up the filthiness…

  • Chipdip

    he was feeding bs to the bs reporters

  • blubell

    Jeremy should be coaching after his NBA career.

  • JoeTeam

    that’s cool! thx.

  • LAJane

    It is’t even pure graciousness…he is one very smart cookie. Given his character, I’m sure the graciousness is genuine. But he always functions on more than one level at once. Diplomacy works. And JoeTeam is right about cannon fodder. Jeremy isn’t going to step in that cow pie.

  • joyce ward

    All I know is that she had better back up off my man…LOL

  • sws94

    He sure is.

  • blubell

    And many thrown in Brawny too lol

  • LAJane

    Skipper’s got a point.

  • Chipdip

    haha…. a blooming bromance …

  • sws94

    He doesn’t get it, does he. The team had fun tonight. They don’t always have fun with Kobe on the floor. And they produced. He needs to open his eyes.

    Byron Scott’s Kobe Bryant Plan Leaving Los Angeles Lakers in Dangerous Position
    By Kevin Ding
    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2309785-byron-scotts-kobe-bryant-plan-leaving-los-angeles-lakers-in-dangerous-position

  • blubell
  • 7iger

    Wondering why the media keep wanting to interview the bench guy. How about the starting PG?

  • Chipdip

    Two months ago I said the Lakers will become a team by Xmas. It happens but I am still wrong because I did not know it will happen if Kobe is not there.

  • spiderman

    5 on 5 is always better than 1 on 5

  • JoeTeam

    The 3 to ice:

    Did you all notice that was a play drawn up by Scott during the TO? GSW had the ball, but on the next possession, I’m going … wha? Why does price have it? Then you see the play and I remembered the shot of Lin, Price, and I think Swag with Byron drawing up a play. If so, we have to give props to BSc … Lin saved for the 4th to win, play drawn to Lin for the dagger.

    And if you agree with me, then maybe BSc has to downplay Lin publicly because of Kobe’s ego. He has to ease kobe into the new role of playing 2/3 of so of the games and less minutes, and no way he’s going to publicly praise his main workhorse to win games and hold the team together.

    I could be all wrong, and I hope you allow me my wish in this lol.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Rick Johnson

    Lin playing chess many moves ahead not just what is obvious to our eyes.

  • blubell

    Love his sarcasm at the end 🙂

  • LAJane

    That shiny bench guy… 😀

  • Jeremiah

    Hmm. I wrote a reply to KHuang that was too much shock and awe and so I edited (basically deleted) it after like 10 minutes. I meant it to be funny but I’m sorry if it offended anyone. Is that what you’re referring to or is it some other post(s)?

  • blubell
  • Chipdip

    Tell Byron

  • 7iger

    Lin want to say the Kobe is the most powerful not the best in Lakers but he can’t be too obvious.

  • blubell

    Why talk to a puppet when you can talk to the puppet master?

  • blubell
  • 7iger

    Yeah, coach Bryant Scott.

  • knibb

    YEAH!

  • JoeTeam

    “I am asking the coach, Jeremy …”

  • joyce ward
  • sws94

    Good for Jeremy. It’s time Byron do his job and be a real coach, not Kobe’s flunky.

  • joyce ward
  • Yascar

    Preach it, Worthy!!

    Is he throwing shade?…LOL

  • JoeTeam

    hope that’s a good thing when required …

  • joyce ward

    Yep, can’t wait for Kobe to go off on Scott. It is coming. Kobe has to blame somebody for his poor play….LOL

  • JoeTeam

    ha ha, then you’d better get your sweet bippy down to the next event and get your pic adoring him … and fight it out with IJ7 🙂

  • JoeTeam

    ah Gollum wants his ring … ho hum Lord of the Rings was too ling in book and movies …

  • blubell

    Kobe’s probably nagging on Bscot on the plane right now.

  • Jeremiah

    Heck yeah!

  • joyce ward

    Yeah, he is. Watch Kobe starts ignoring him.

  • Jeremiah

    But he’d clean up all the mess!

  • BuzzerBeater

    That wasnt just shade, that was an eclipse!

    Speak on it Worthy!

  • Brent Yen

    Somehow I get a feeling that LAL is hoping Kobe to step down by himself….It just never worked…LOL

  • Jeremiah

    4!

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    Oh, sorry, I had to come back and re-read the thread. I wasn’t writing about your old post, but more to talk about the above where Brent and psalm asked Alain to edit his calling someone an idiot. I was too obtuse … basically, instead of mod, they are asking people to self edit for the upside. I was making reference to how some ppl just write incendiary yellow journalism so editorial policies are good. I replied to your pose because it was the last one on this thread, not that I mean your prev post. Have a nice night.

  • blubell

    Remember Kobe said, happy wife happy house? Well, the wife is not happy lol

  • Chipdip

    Every time he speaks to the reporters, I sense a dagger was pushing hard on KB

  • blubell
  • Jeremiah

    No wonder. smh JK.

  • Chipdip

    Poor Lin, has to keep watching the land mines while giving interviews

  • joyce ward

    I think you are right, but it will never happen with kobe.

  • joyce ward
  • Brent Yen

    LOL…with so many injuries. LAL no longer in a hurry to make it happen anyway. I guess FO is just aiming something in the summer and leave Kobe to Scott to deal

    Will be riding along Santa Monica Beach

  • LAJane

    Although…Jeremy gets sideways looks for that floral shirt he wears, which I defend. But I have to say this sweater with the penguin pouch is…..nope.

  • LAJane

    That is a great ride, or skate. 26 miles long – from just below Malibu all the way to Pacific Palisades, practically at water’s edge through all the great beach towns: Santa Monica, Venice, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo. Cruise any short section, good eats at little cafes along the way…great way to spend a day.

  • spiderman

    I’ll be biking there soon. What are the odds of seeing him

  • cindystar111

    he’s much better than ho chen.(is tthat his name?)

  • cindystar111

    if he really knew lin’s value i think he would play him more. like he used to do with his star pgs.

  • cindystar111

    maybe it’s for the best, if lin scored higher without kobe, he might make lin go to D-league instead of bench.

  • Rick Johnson
  • JoeTeam

    well. look at how the team popped a great game. He can’t due to kobe.

  • sport

    Keep dreaming, BS downplays Lin so his boy Price can rise up!!

  • sport

    I’m fine with Young, he takes the number of shots that I want Lin taking on a regular basis because that’s the average one needs to be considered a good scorer with high PPG!

  • sport

    Looks like Nick Young isn’t buying into Lin, only one who was close by and didn’t have any interaction with him in the clip. I think Lin raised his hand at the end but Young ignored?

  • sport

    You mean staggering their minutes? Something BS should’ve done from the start except he’s afraid of Lin out shining Kobe and his golden boy Price!!

  • JoeTeam

    look at the tape, he’s there drawing on his clipboard and the 3 of them are listening and that’s the only organized play to end the game.

  • Carol Tiu

    Kobe must be seething now.

  • kauaiblue

    I think he played garbage time as 20 point lead

  • kauaiblue

    Hope u r right

  • cindystar111

    yeah. but i won’t expect anything from him.

  • deesee5

    Supposed to be “it”, not ET the ailen. Lol

  • sws94

    Yeah, he is. Ha!

  • Jeremiah

    I meant that to make Kobe look good and win more games when he does play, Lin will play like 40 minutes those games. When Kobe sits, Lin will get less than 20 minutes. I expect Kobe to behave better.

  • Carol Tiu

    Not fair. Why does Jeremy look the ugliest in this bunch? That hair certainly did not help. It looks like a clamp of seaweed.
