The movement is spreading, folks. However, Mr. Garnett doesn’t seem to like it… Nevertheless, we’re still here and keeping the faith.

L.A Times: BTW, tennis observers report that Garnett didn’t look amused when he was shown on the video screen and public-address announcer Ted Sobel intoned, “There’s a team in purple and gold that could use you.”

  • kobeguru

    maybe he didn’t want to give anything away

  • Lakerboy248

    exactly, he wants it to be a surprise for Laker fans!(I hope…) (= But if he doesn’t come, I hope he opts out of Minnie so they can suffer!

  • kobeguru

    if he was frowning, it is another story, if he was just sitting there, no problem.

  • Lakerboy248

    was he frowning?

  • kobeguru

    I think he is just tired of people saying come to the lakers, it gets annoying after a while

  • KBisDarthVader

    he was out trying to chill, and fools are putting him on blast in front of a stadium full of fans…poor taste. im sure he has to be as annoyed/frustrated/tired of hearing about all the trade rumors as we are, so im not suprised he wasnt pleased with the situation. it DOES NOT mean he doesnt want to be a laker any more than his presense in LA indicates he does want to be a laker…simply has no relevance

  • KOBE

    this is not looking good for us. can you say lottery next year?????

  • kobeguru

    if we don’t get kg, we will still make the playoffs easily.

  • dlakerfanforlife

    This is as relevant as what color under shirt he was wearing that day. LAME!!!!!!!!!

  • kobeguru

    I wonder if he wore people and gold?

    I POSTED THIS ON THE PACER’S FORUM: I’M KUPCHAK AND EACH PACER BLOGGER IS LARRY BIRD..NOW TO MY FELLOW LAKER BLOGGER DO U LIKE THIS TRADE?

    “LAKER FAN HERE.. EACH OF YOU SHOULD ACT LIKE LARRY BIRD..NOW HERE’S MY PROPOSAL..TELL ME IF WE HAVE A DEAL.

    BYNUM, KWAME, J.CRITT (I REALLY LIKE THIS GUY), COOK. FOR J.ONEAL

    BYNUM
    BYNUM’S 2ND YEAR #’S ARE IDENTICAL (SLIGHTLY BETTER, MORE EFFICIENT) THAN AL JEFFERSON 2ND YEAR #’S. IF BYNUM FOLLOWS THAT SAME GROWTH PATTERN, HE SHOULD AVG 16PPG, 11 RBS, 2 BLKS THIS UPCOMING SEASON..HE HAS BEEN WORKING OUT LIKE CRAZY THIS OFFSEASON. HE WOULDN’T BE A BAD ADDITION TO YOUR CLUB.

    KWAME
    KWAME SUCKS..NO SUGAR COATING..BUT HE DOES HAVE $9 MILL COMING OF YOUR BOOKS NEXT YEAR..THAT’S $$ THAT COULD HELP PACERS SIGN 1 OF THE MANY 2008 FA LIKE G.ARENAS, OR OTHER STARS WITH BREAKOUT YEARS ETC. PLUS KWAME POST DEFENSE IS 2ND TO ONLY HMM TIM DUNCAN IN MY OPINION..IF THERE’S A CTR/PF THAT HAS A POST UP GAME..KWAME IS ONE OF THE BEST DEFENDING THAT GUY..HE’S HELD GUYS LIKE TIM DUNCAN, GARNETT, RASHEED WALLACE ETC TO 25% FG..

    COOK
    I READ THAT L.OBRIEN IS TRYING TO SHOOT THE 3’S THIS YEAR..WITH THAT NEW UPTEMPO STYLE OF PLAY, THERE’S NO BETTER BIG MAN TO PLAY ALONGSIDE MURPHY THAT WOULD HELP SPREAD THE FLOOR THAN COOK. HE GIVES YOU ANOTHER THREAT..IF COOK GETS AN OPEN SHOT IT’S AS GOOD AS $$ IN THE BANK.

    NOW OUR PROMISING #19 PICK J.CRITTENTON.
    JUST CHECK OUT THE 1ST TEAM ALL NBA SUMMER LEAGUE & HE’S 3RD ON THE LIST..THIS GUY IS GONNA BE GOOD..HE’S BIG, STRONG, ATHLETIC DEFENDER..HE CAN BREAK ANYBODY OF THE DRIBBLE AND FINISH STRONG IN THE LANE..HE HITS THE MIDRANGE WITH PURE CONSISTENCY..HE ALSO SHOT 40 % FROM THE 3, HE HANDLES THE BALL WELL, SETS TEAMMATES UP, A GIFTED PASSER, PLAYS CONFIDENTLY LIKE A FLOOR GENERAL…STEVE FRANCIS IN HIS PRIME WITHOUT THE BAGGAGE IS WHAT THEY ARE COMPARING HIM TO..I DON’T THINK INDIANA HAS ANYBODY LIKE THAT..AS MUCH AS IT WOULD HURT TO SEE A GUY LIKE THIS GO, WE ALREADY GOT FISHER, FARMER, SASHA TO RUN POINT..PG IN THE TRIANGLE ONLY NEED TO HAVE MIDRANGE, AND 3PT SHOTS..PACERS COULD USE J.CRITT MORE THAN WE NEED HIM..WHAT LAKERS NEED IS J.O

    Y’ALL GOT 2 MANY FORWARDS ALREADY, I DON’T THINK YOU NEED LAMAR (A SF IN A PF BODY THAT CANNOT POST UP)

    IN SUMMARY WOULD U BE HAPPY WITH 1)BYNUM (YOUNG BACK TO BASKET CTR), 2)KWAME (9 MILL OF THE BOOKS), 3)COOK (LONG RANGE 3PT SPECIALIST)& 4)J.CRITT (A PG, WITH SHOOTING ABILITIES THAT CAN TAKE IT HARD TO THE HOLE LIKE D.WADE)
    5)MAYBE A 1ST ROUND 2008 DRAFT PICK?

    FOR J.O.

    WHO LIKES THIS TRADE?

    Is Fisher/Bryant/Vlad/Odom/Jermaine Chip?

    ——————————————————————————–

    Since the Nets passed on JO, the Pacers have lost a lot of leverage.

    I see Walsh/Bird trading JO and his fat contract for Bynum/Kwame/Critterton/Cook.

    I dont want to part with Critterton, he is our best pick in years, but you do what you have to do.

    That leaves us with

    PG: Fisher/Farmar
    SG: Bryant/Evans
    SF: Vlad/Luke
    PF: Odom/Turiaf
    C: Jermaine/Mihm

    I believe that can be a championship with Fisher and Vlad (healthy) nailing open threes from Kobe/O’neal/Odom.

    Also Factor in :

    Kobe – 32 ppg /5 rpg /5 apg
    JO LO – 36ppg/ 21 rpg / 9 apg

    Theoretical totals (average of KB LO JO): 68 PPG, 26 RPG, 14 APG

    Each of those 3 will benefit tremendously from the presence of each other. Finally, Jermaine will be able to operate without getting doubled, and Kobe won’t have so much pressure on him.

    The fact that we got rid of smelfish parker alone, improves this team 10 fold.

    Consider with LO O’neal we will pound the suns in the post all day and beat them, and that we were nearly 3-0 against the spurs this year (had it not been for a Finely 3), I see this team as a championship team.

    Your thoughts.

    A) Would you do that trade?
    B) Is this a championship team?

    I know one thing, I would definitely rather have KB/LO/JO than KB/KG, thats for sure.

  • Faith

    He wore some kind of hot pink orange looking thing I think lol.

  • http://twitter.com/nugge7 The Nugget

    Silly us, he was probably thinking of the Sparks. :D

  • Laker

    FUCK DAT…J.O. IS KOO BUT HE IS WAY TO INJURY PRONE TO GIVE UP DAT MUCH, BYNUM IS GONNA BE GOOD NEXT YEAR AND JAVA, HAS ALOT OF POTENTIAL I WOULD RATHER GIVE UP ODOM AND FARMAR ALONG WITH COOK AND KWAME INSTEAD OF BYNUM AND JAVA.

  • Billy Kupchak

    I think my dad is going to get us what we need, ok? :)

  • http://www.lakerfreak.homestead.com lakerfreak

    i would rather have KB/LO/JO then KB/KG also especially seeing KG is what 31/32 and JO is 29 KB is going to be 29 and LO is 26/27 I would try to not give up Java, which would raise his value for sure but if he was the only way to get the Pacers to say yes while keeping LO then ya i think LO/JO/KB/DFish/Walton is better then DFish/KB/Fox/Walker/Shaq
