"They did it for byron scott. we are like 13 games ahead of everyone in our division we can afford to give a old teammate a win to cheer him up."

I hear you. But I think this was just one of those things where they didn't really feel the need to compete. I hate to see it but I see it a lot. Like when Roy Jones got knocked out the first time. He said "Its hard to get motiviated for these kinds of fights sometimes."

I see a lot of sports do shit like this. They don't get hype because if you win, who cares. I never doubt the Lakers. I don't hate them cuz they suck. I hate them cuz they're pretty fukn good. We'll see whats up after All Star break.

But hey, Lakers should beat the Cavs without trying. How'd Kobe get outplayed by Fisher? How'd some no name guy (I literally forgot his name) drop 30pts on them? Kobes been suckin lately at the weirdest moments. Hes real good and then really bad. Pau and the rest of his team seem like they're not always happy. Phil doesn't seem to care much but thats just his style.

I don't care how unmotivated you get though, you gotta come to play every night or teams will start to THINK they're better than you despite the record and then they will beat you. The games 99 percent mental. Lakers are weak mentally.

^Word, but we lost homecourt for sure and we don't do so hot on the road. I'm just hopping the Lakeshow remembers where the switch is so they can flip it come May.

I know there's not much to say till playoffs but to the lakers: HAVE HEART. Seriously its depressing watching them play, sometimes even when theyre winning.

Congrats to Kobe for the allstars MVP! Lakers, can we now get back to winning and secure home court advantage for the playoffs.

thumbs up if D. Howard a.k.a superman goes to the Lakers next season. (since he does wants to play for the lakers)

thumbs up if D. Howard a.k.a superman goes to the Lakers next season. (since he does wants to play for the lakers)

He is still under contract next season and won't be a free agent until the season after that.


Dwight Howard was asked by the media before Tuesday's game against the Knicks if he considered the Nets more "attractive" following their acquisition of Deron Williams.

"Orlando's the most attractive place for me right now," Howard answered with a smile. "They have a sexy new arena, a beautiful franchise, nice banners around here and been in the top four in the Eastern Conference for the past four years. Yes, Orlando's the most attractive place right now."

Howard is eligible to become a free agent in the summer of 2012.

"For me, I just feel like there's always going to be a dominant guy on the team, and then you've got role players," Howard said. "That's the way [Michael] Jordan and his team won, and that's the way Kobe [Bryant] and those guys won. They had two guys who could dominate, Kobe and Shaq, and then the rest of the guys were role players who knew their roles.

"I don't want to say you have to team up with another great all-star in this league to win a championship. I think it takes a team to win. If you get hot at the right time, it doesn't matter if you've got three all-stars or four. You can still get beat."


During an interview on The Dan Patrick Show on Monday, Dwight Howard reiterated his desire to retire as a member of the Magic.

"I love Orlando. The city has been very good to me and I would love to finish my career here. I want to win a championship and I want to win it in Orlando," Howard said.

"That's all I've been thinking about."

Howard can become a free agent after next season and his name has already popped up in rumors.

My heart dropped when I saw Bynum was going to miss two games. Then I kept reading and laughed because it's only because he's suspended.
Mar 20, 2011 @ 15:51
I have to say at first i wanted the lakers to trade Bynum thought he wasn't worth a shit . Since he came back he has been doing his thing . Glad the they didn't get rid of him
