ATTENTION: And so it begins…

gotgarnettsm.jpgThe rivalry is back. It may not appear evident, but there is only ONE franchise that holds more titles than the Lakers. So in theory, it never left. We as Lakers fans must unite, despite not “Getting Garnett,” we can believe as fans to rebuild and get back to the Finals.

Meanwhile, the Celtics “Got Garnett” and they are back; you’d be a fool not to consider them to get to the finals now. We here at GetGarnett.com are opening up the next generation of rivalry.

I introduce to the world, GotGarnett.com. Boston, congrats on Garnett. We welcome all Boston fans to join in, and I welcome all of you to read the welcome letter over there. We as Lakers fans will be heard. We will be back. We are the voice. We are the Vision Of The Fans.

    For now, the GetGarnett.com will update the blog but we soon hope to bring a Celtic fan to update the site for us.

    Everyone chill!

    IM KINDA LIKING THE IDEA NOW , ITS LIKE A RIVALRY BETWEEN THE INTERNET

    LAKERS VS. CELTICS

    GETGARNETT.COM VS. GOTGARNETT TWO BIG RIVALRIES

    COOL…..

  • BringDFishBack

    So, you guys, “laker fans” are making a celtics blog site. makes sense.

  • MacBSlick

    Know I understand why you kept this stupid site name. Sorry Guys But I grew up hating the Celtics and I wont be a partaker in having to be reminded about that stupid team every time I come here.

    Have fun Kids

  • LakerNation1

    that was an interesting read on GotGarnett. i thank you for that long entry. the only thing that matters now is…will there actually be a rivalry?

    you see, the past rivalries dealt with numerous victories over each other for championships and play off games. this one is sparked by one guy deciding to go to a team that we normally wouldnt even talk about just because they had the moola and they owners and GMs are buddies. if we can get really good games between LA and Boston, then sure im up for a friendly rivalry. but if its just over KG, really i can care less.

    right now, rivalry for the Lakers are the goddamn Phoenix Suns. And we all know why too.

  • ryanfu09

    Yeahh… Iam not a big fan of this at all! … Let the Celtic fans come up with a site for there self, we dont need to help them get info on things! I mean I feel that you guys are trying to expand and do better, but i think you guys should put more time in trying to do things for the Laker Nation and not try to start rivals up. Its kind of dumb to me because most of the people that will be on gotgarnett.com are us Laker fans. It just doesn’t make SENSE….. regardless of starting back up a rivalry let it be between RedsArmy and US! don’t waste your time making a site for them that they prob wont use….just like if Celtic fans made a ChicksArmy for us…we all would stay HERE!…..I think you guys should take a poll and see what THE LAKER NATION feels?…exactly what the site should be called! THELAKERNATION.com… ANYONE AGREE?

  • http://www.getgarnett.com Fred A.

    Kobe/JO/Fisher vs. Peirce/KG/Allen

    JO will off set KG.
    Kobe will beat the s*** out of Peirce.

    The Lakers got this rivarly put in the bag.
    YES!!!!!!!! :)

  • as1084

    this is a really dumb idea guys. i thought u guys were going to take all ur effort toward improving this site not keeping this site the same and just creating one for the celtics. u guys got all laker fans excited cause we thought u were going to improve getgarnett.com but it is exactly the same. this was a huge letdown guys. oh well. we still have the same boring website, but the info is good though :)

  • kb24lalaland

    This is a great idea.

  • cyrus

    Let’s take a step back and take a look form a different angle at this “Get or Got Garnett” deal; Financially, it’s genius, they cover both markets, more visitors means more clicks on the ads and so on. At the end of the day, the creators are paying the bills and keeping and running a site like this cost money. For the GG owners and staff, it’s the matter of survival and this is the best way of expanding the market: we didn’t “get Garnett” but Boston did, so the best way to keep the movement alive is to give them the “got Garnett” along with Mr.KG himself. I can’t hide my jealousy and one could call it treason but than again who is gonna pay the bills???

  • LakerNation1

    cyrus has a point in terms of productivity.

    rivalry wise though, i think should develop naturally like the Suns have been for the past couple seasons. we went into battle with them and it was a great series. granted last year sucked, but they are the team that most of us hate the most.

    this celtic rivalry, yes it has history. and yes, it was indeed a great history. but i rather have it become a rivalry through great basketball games. actions on the court,later, off the court so it can be settled on the court again. me personally, would not start a “rivalry” because of one person. KG to me isnt important enough to stir something that could be something really big, and fun if it were through good basketball games.

    Lakers are not important to KG, KG is not important to the Lakers. why is there so much emphasis on KG???? forget him.

    let rivalries stir on the court.

    i feel really bad for shooting down ideas that the creators come up with bc i have the utmost respect for you guys. u made a great site, a great movement and a reliable site for us Laker fans. hell, u made a casual fan like myself into the most informative laker fan out of my group. but seriously….i know what youre trying to do, and i understand fully. but kg isnt worth the time. not anymore…

  • The President

    Hey Cyrus…..nice post man. You get it. All the GG creators are trying to do is be a little different, try something that has never been done before in sports history, raise a couple bucks to cover the hosting costs…and in the end have some fun. The boys bleed purple and gold like no other. Ld2k’s vids, hZm’s graphics, The Nuggets content management and Shanes quality takes. Give the staff a break. All Lakers fans know and understand the work done here. Not all will be happy…buy can anyone deny that the approach is fresh and cutting edge. That is what makes Get/GotGarnett.com so interesting.

    [quote comment="11358"]So….. name is staying or not?[/quote]
    Thats what I want to know? Thats never been really clear, i thought it wasnt then i thought it was and now with this it seems like its going to stay, Can the staff clarify?

    No ones even going to visit that site, except few of us lakers fans, why would Celtic fans go to a site made by Lakers fans? Theyll be were Celtic fans will be, Redsarmy and etc, and not gotgarnett made by Lakers fans, come on guys.

    I think its a clever idea but I agree with LakerNation1, how can a rivalry even exist if a game between them hasnt even been played yet? IF IM NOT MISTAKEN RIVALRIES START IN THE PLAYOFFS and at this point i only see us playing two games in the regular season, they wont get past the bulls/pistons and we wont get past top 3 teams in the west.
    But lets not forget why we are all here guys the Los Angeles Lakers.

    Hey staff, is there going to be actual improvements to GETGARNETT? Care to give any specifics or theyll just come as a surprise?

  • MambaKB24

    seriously, this aint no rilvary till either lakers bring in JO or some blood is spilled

    garnett has nothing to do with lakers

    we never had him

    he never did anything to us

    he didnt befriend dannie ainge and kevin mchale

    he didnt trade the 5th pick for 2 broken ankles

    so get over it

    im a loyal laker fan, but i feel like this “new generation of rilvary” is being forcefed and shoved down my throat

    its a load of bull for now, the celtics are good in a horrible confference

    the lakers are decent in a amazing conference

    so until manegment “does somthing, and does it now” than we are the same lakers and the celtics are just alot older

    by the way, id rather have Al Jefferson than Kevin Garnett

    the kids got a bright future in this leage, similar to a slightly larger Elton Brand and KG is already goin downhill

    his prime was the year he won MVP, and hes gonna be as useless as shaq is now in 2 years, i guarentee it

  • MambaKB24

    and by the way, who knows, maybe those draft picks will come to haunt the celtics down the road…

  • cyrus

    LakerNation1,

    Like always, your reasoning is logical and unimpeachable; this site was created on a hype over roster improvement and preferably an improvement in getting Garnett. After KG trade to Boston, the brand name “GetGarnett” was obsolete for the Lakers instantly, but became a new marketable gadget among Boston Celtic’s supporter. This was a pure financial move to keep this website alive.

    I must agree with you, for me as a Lakers’ fan, the name Phoenix Suns and Steve Nash revive the true sense of rivalry. Kevin Garnett is just giving me a bad after-taste. We will meet Celtic’s 2 times a year and the odds of facing them in finals are as low as 30-1.

    If the name stays the same, at least on the Gold side (Lakers), it would make it difficult for me to consider this site as a true Lakers fan-based institution and consequently, it may affect my feelings toward this site as a Lakers’ fan.

    For now, I will wait and give the owners and creators room to regroup, reorganize and experiment. I will examine the end-product, and at that point I will see if it indeed could satisfy my need for a sanctuary to express my opinion and affection for my beloved Lakers.

    im in total agreement my friend. its a wise thing to say to give the blog developers to experiment, do their own thing, and hopefully we all can meet halfway to make things work for everyone.

    i gotta make a notice to someone earlier who posted that this “new rivalry” is being shoved down our throats. to be honest, i didnt even think about an actual rivalry when KG went to boston other than Lakers beating the living hell out of them this season and KG getting booed louder than a lindsay lohan movie. The Suns and Nash is what gets my purple and gold blood going, and that happens because of what they did to us. so u can see the difference between a natural, on court rivalry, and a make believe rivalry thats built on one person. thats my two cents.

    but i have to admit, the gotgarnett.com site looks CLEAN~!

  • lonestar848

    Interesting…I feel like this “rivalry” is being forced down our throats. I appreciate and love the info and layout of this site but to get hyped up about a rivalry between two teams who will rarely play each other is lame. While the Celtics might get to the finals, with the Lakers current roster they have no shot. KG didn’t do anything to us. If anything, Ray Allen is a bigger rival because he talks trash on Kobe.

    I thought the intent of the site was to unite fans and hope our team gets better, not unite fans by placating a pseudo-rivalry

    Like the idea. But, dont you think you should’ve learned from this site, not to name to other site THAT.
    What will happen when you change this name, if you do.
    Could it be a rivalry between, lets say ‘shiphisassout.com’ vs. Gotgarnett.com?
    Plus, based on names, they already beat us. Because we want to GetGarnett.com, and they actually GotGarnett.com

    Tell that to Buss.

    14 championships vs. 16

    That’s a rivalry, it goes beyond the rosters. It’s about the history of both teams, the past, present, and future. Celtics have been in the crapper for 20 years, now it appears they may competing to raise their # of championships even higher. If there was ever a time for Buss to take a chance, make a move… it’s now.

  • keep24

    This new website format would be a great idea if there really was a rivalry. As of right now, there is none. This is not the 80s. I’m sorry, this is a forced rivalry as of this moment.

    Will we still have a rivalry when Kobe is gone? What’s the rivalry: Bynum vs. Garnett or Odom vs. Pierce?

    In other words, we’re spending money that we are yet to earn. If this going to be like anything it was in the 80s, we need to keep it going for years. And, w/o KB we can not compete.

    Best case possible, we’ll have Kobe for two year,which if you saw last night, is not going to happen. Kobe had a chance to show other GMs in the league that everything is fine in LALA LAND and that the Lakers are not holding a fire sale. BUT HE DIDN’T!!!

    Put a fork in it because we’re done! No Kobe means no shot!

    celtics got Garnett and we lost Kobe. I think it’s safe to say that Celtics have won this leg of the rivalry. They watched us carry the torch for years and now we’re going to be forced to watch them.

    This forced rivalry will be good for business but not for the rest of us fans.

    Dark, dark day in LAKER LAND!

  • LakerNation1

    just one more comment and ill be out of your hair regarding the gotgarnett deal.

    no one would be thinking about such “rivalry” if garnett didnt go to boston. i still think that this “rivalry” is fueled by garnett going there, and like i said before, garnett doesnt need nor deserve so much emphasis. this stuff about the history, yeah its there, but no one wouldve gone back to it and try to revive it if garnett didnt go to boston. i said it once, and ill be done after this.

    rivalries should stem from the basketball court. then it goes onto outside the courts. then settled back onto the courts again ala Phoenix Suns. Its not a matter of WHEN the celtics and lakers will meet in the finals and blah blah blah. we still dont even know if the celtics can even go the distance, or us MAKING the playoffs. i find this redundant, but as creators, i respect your admirations, and experiments. but theres no logical thinking behind this. its just all made-up hype and i think you guys are reading too much into this so called “rivalry”.

    celtics at the very most is more like an interesting matchup instead of an actual rivalry. its like watching kobe and shaq facing each other for the first time on xmas day. its like OOOOOOOHHHHHH and AHHHHHHH. sooner or later KG is gonna be the same thing. OOOOOHHHH and AHHHH and then “ok whatever, move on”.

  • Faith

    Normally you’re tops to me guys…but I just can’t stand behind this. Sorry.

  • la

    I feel as if the laker nation has lost complete hope by congragulating the CELTICS for getting the player that we all longed for. And besides, y’all know where it says MVP,MVP -THE GARDEN by kobes name, well, that wont happen anymore because Boston has something they could actually cheer for. This site Gotgarnett.com is taking a step backwards for the laker nation. As of now, the only team we need revenge is on the suns. I suggest we should make a site called dumBELL.com

  • la

    “Faith” has got it right and I think the GG staff is going through mental breakdowns that unfortunately let them drift away from the reality that only the strongest and toughest laker fans can withstand. We as laker fans cannot drift away because of what happened to the GG staff. If this commotion continues, we as LAKER FANS must not fall in to this sucking up to the celtics.

    I dont want to add to the already hundreds of posts regarding the name change. But to be honest the first thing that should have been done is, not making a celtic blog, but changing the name ASAP. Are you guys just waiting to see what happens with this got/get garnett thing, whether its a failure or success, (no offense but i think the got garnett site will fail its made by lakers fans for gods sake), or are you guys just having trouble agreeing on a name change, no ideas for names?

    My apologies for adding to the many posts regarding a name change, youve guys have been beaten on about it too much already but just saying a name change is in the future is quite vague, what exactly is the hold up?

    MAN, there are two seperate kinds of laker fans. Those who are ignorant that believe the lakers who want everything, and those who are too stubborn to give up players in a trade. Why do i not see any moderation between the two. And more thing, a website can only bring a rivalry back to who knows what kind of fans. A rivalry is formed by competitive play between two teems and in this generation, we haven’t seen anything close to a rivalry.

    You’d be a fool to think there is no rivalry. When the Celtcs get back to the finals, and win a ring. They have more bragging rights over the Lakers. We need to keep the spirit alive.[/quote]

    A rivalry is, as defined by dictionary.com, competition. When one team dominates the other, its not competition, and therefore not a rivalry. Lakers have to get someone to make this team good to make it a rivalry.[/quote]
    Tell that to Buss.

    14 championships vs. 16

    That’s a rivalry, it goes beyond the rosters. It’s about the history of both teams, the past, present, and future. Celtics have been in the crapper for 20 years, now it appears they may competing to raise their # of championships even higher. If there was ever a time for Buss to take a chance, make a move… it’s now.[/quote]

    You’re a hypocrite. You say when the celtics sucked in the last 20 years, there was no rivalry. But now that they are good and have a chance at raising their # of championships, it is a rivalry. But we dont have a chance at raising our # of championships, so…?
