    Yes that’s right. Kobe is way better thatn you. Relocate to New York…better opportunity.

  • http://www.myspace.com/orionis deus_ex

    I’m in tears guys, this is amazing!!! This feels like 2000 again when we won after our last title drought. I don’t know about you guys but being a Laker fan is one the greatest things in the world!!!! I was three when Lakers won their last showtime title and I remember watching Jordan beat us in 91 and hating him forever for that.

    My father passed on a Laker tradition to me and I can’t wait to pass this down to my children. To all the Laker fans around the world, we have reason to celebrate!!!! Looks like Obama picked the best team again.

  • Dwight Howard

    Stupid Laker Fans…burning t-shirts and tree branches in the streets of L.A.

    I still don’t get it. Someone…anyone…please explain. I want to unerstand.

  • Stephen

  • pio2u

    Congratulations to the World Champion LA Lakers!! how sweet it is:)

  • lainok

    After watching every game, reading every article, counting every stat and checking this site 10 times a day for the last 2 1/2 years, I feel almost as exhausted as Kobe. So much was lifted off our shoulders tonight. Just because we don’t physically play on the team, doesn’t mean we aren’t a part of it. I’m going to start a tradition of buying a simple gold ring with the championship year on it for myself every time we win the title. So by June 2011 I should have three!

  • Lakers_The_Truth

    Congrats Lakers Nation. We are one more time champion of the world!
    It feels so good.

    Congrats PJ for the 10th ring. Just unbelievable.
    Congrats Kobe for proving you can lead a team to the promised land.
    Congrats Derek for your leadership.
    Congrats Gasol for silencing the doubters
    Congrats Lamar for stepping up when we really needed you.
    Congrats for the rest of the team for proving this team is worth a Championship ring.
    Congrats Mitch for building a champion team just like your predecessor did.
    Congrats Jerry Buss for giving us so much happiness in LA!

    GO LAKERS!!!!!!

  • lainok

    also….where is that celtic loving b1tch joseph now? what no new posts?

  • Paul Garnett

    There should be an asterisk by this championship. If we had a healthy Garnett we would of have swept ya’ll in the finals. GO CELTS!!!

  • Lakezilla

    HEEEELLLLL YEEAAAHHHH!!!! The greatest franchise finally returns to the throne. The championship is where it belongs. This is the 6 title I’ve watched the Lakers win and it keeps getting better and better. Kobe the real MVP! Damn I’m so happy right now. I was jumping around like a little girl when the clock hit 0.0. To see Kobe embrace Dfish like that was classic and I hope Phil finally shut up all the critics. Sometimes we don’t get him but who cares…..Phil=rings, Kobe=rings, Lakers=rings. WOOOOOOOOT!!!!!
    Suck it to the haters out there, we are here to stay!!!

    Congrats,
    Lakers 2009 NBA Champions

    IM SO PROUD OF THIS TEAM…GO LAKERS 2009 NBA CHAMPS!!!!!

  • LakersFirst

    [Comment ID #76148 Will Be Quoted Here]

    If that is your thinking, then Suckdics championships from last year should have an asterisk. We were without 2 starters last year. F*ck the Suckdics. GO LAKERS!!!

  • WifelovesLuke

    So Sasha gets a ring without scoring a single point in 5 games? lol

    So happy for D Fish, LO, Gasol, Ariza, Walton. Some great guys!

    Kobe, thanks for bringing these guys along for the ride. Get some rest over the summer and come out strong for next year. This legacy you are building is so great to watch. Love ya, 24!!!!!!!

    Still dreamin? …Haven’t been able to wake up from yur Hibernation? …Dude, this is LakersNation!
    …Only CHAMPIONS get to roll here! …GTFOOH! …Take yur wheelchair with you and go back to sleep!

    Post Script …Hopping around on one good leg is not gonna getcha any sympathy either!

  • LakersFirst

    For all those Laker doubters, those Laker “fans” that never believed in this team, for those people who thought this team was ONLY Kobe Bryant, for those that said this Laker take didn’t have heart, in other words for those people who never had faith in this Laker team, EAT YOUR WORDS and maybe now you will stick with the Lakers through thick and thin …

    Trust me Laker doubters and bandwagon fans, when you stick with the team through the good times and the bad times, the championships are much sweeter.

  • Cruzeer

    Yyyyyyyaaaaaaaeeeeeehhhhh! Lakers!

  • Smush Walton

    [Comment ID #76148 Will Be Quoted Here]

    Oh you simple minded fool –
    Clearly, if we had Ariza and Bynum last year, LA and the Sukdic would both be tied with 16 titles and Phil would have 11, two more than that piece of DUNG Auerbach!

  • KONG!

    im speechless.

    this magic team was no match for us. the champion was really decided in Houston.

    Congratulations 2009 CHAMPION LAKERS. Thank you Mr. Bryant for another amazing season and championship. Keep them coming

  • Mr. WoodCock

    Vujabrick should give his ring to the water boy. At least the water boy showed up every game and was more consistant at bringing the players drinks.

    Guess how many Vujabrick scored in this series? ZERO!!! Dude sucks major donkey d!ck. How about giving the Lakers back some of that money you stole from them… same with Bynum.

  • hellbydante

    This championship is for chick…. This game is in the refrigerator, the door’s closed, the lights are out, the eggs are cooling, the butter’s getting hard and the jello’s jiggling!!!

    CONGRATULATIONS TLN!!! I was with you guys from the very beginning, remember getgarnett.com?

You guys do one helluva job, keep up the good work and can you say…CHAMPIONSHIP!!!

  • Renee

    Is the Laker parade this wed?

  • http://www.rushlimbaugh.com Rush Limbaugh

    Those are not “Lakers Fans” you saw on the news burning down the City. Those are the same gang-banging ass-wipes who make trouble at Raiders Football games, beat-up people at dodgers’ baseball games, car jack tourist, and write graffiti on walls of hard-working, law-abiding Americans, and flee from car accidents, and sneak across our boarder to rob and steal, over-crowd our schools, and hospitals, all while spreading the Swine Flu. These are the same people who protests in Los Angles streets, demanding rights from the US government, while waving the Mexican flag; in other words, dirty wetbacks.
