Lakers Year 2015 Version

Well it’s been 3 years since I’ve written. That’s what happens when the Lakers start losing. How can an emotional Laker fan like me write something Lakers when they keep on losing?

So how’s the state of my Lakers these days? Well…

  • Kobe needs to retire sooner coz he’s messing up whatever chemistry’s left on this team.
  • We need to be patient with D’Angelo Russel. At best, he could be the next Stephen Curry. At worst? Dell Curry? Haha, I actually don’t know.
  • Byron Scott needs to go. This team, though young, is a good team. Byron is just not making this team play to its potential. Or maybe he’s playing Kobe Bryant too much?

That’s all for now while I suffer from Laker mediocrity.

NBA Playoffs 2011: End of a Lakers Era

Well, that sucked.

The Lakers were unceremoniously swept by the team they owned for years, the Dallas Mavericks.  I guess Bill Simmons’ jinx ritual worked after all.  (Although, his beloved Boston Celtics were still booted out by the evil Miami Heat.)

That they won it in a game 7, against the hated Boston Celtics, is even sweeter.  The Truth lied, by the way.  He did go back to Los Angeles, unless… he meant he wasn’t going back to LA as the old Paul Pierce who used to kill the Lakers.

Sorry, I just had to write that to get it out of my system.

Anyways, what now for the Los Angeles Lakers?  How can they three-peat?  If only I can address some of the players one by one.

Lakers and the 2009 All-Star Break

The Los Angeles have 4 days off and I think they need it.  My long term concern is that they are trying really hard to gain home court advantage throughout the playoffs. they may be burnt out come playoff time.

I was expecting the Lakers to lose that one at Utah, just like I expected them to lose one against Charlotte.  Am I clairvoyant?  No.  I’m just your regular Laker fan pessimist.

Just kidding. Read More
