“GetGarnett.com will undergo some “additions” very soon.

The past week or so many have speculated on the name change. Truth is, for now, it will remain the same but it will have a different meaning: “Get Garnett.” By keeping the name it will constantly remind us all why we are here. “Get Garnett” is a constant reminder that all of us want to see the Lakers become a championship caliber franchise once again.

While we keep pushing for the Lakers Front Office to get something done, we should remind Kevin Garnett and his Celtics that we’re watching.

The way we “Get Garnett” now is to prove that the Lakers and our fan base can get it done without him and follow his mistake to Boston. Time to roll-up our sleeves and climb to Beantown. Boston — You just re-started the old rivalry, and soon we will introduce to everyone the new generation of the rivalry.

All of us here at GetGarnett.com are excited to unveil the next generation of the rivalry. It’s coming soon. Stay tuned, be patient, and believe. We are the hope. We are the voice. We Are Vision Of The Fans. We plan on major changes, including a name change, but that will all come in time. For now, enjoy the content that all of us here at GG provide, and we promise it will all make sense in the near future.

Thank you again for visiting and being one of the 30 million-plus fans.

    getgarnett staff,

    good to know you guys are taking your time to get things done right. i know the final decisions to the site are your choices and im sure theyll be great but you guys should post details on what you plan on doing to the site so you guys can get feedback from the many people who visit this site.

    Why not get rid of Odom? He’s injured every year. He’s got shoulder problems and is coming off of surgery. He’s no spring chicken anymore either. He failed to show up in about 70% of our games last year. Does everyone seem to forget that because of a few good playoff games?
    As for Bynum. Seriously, let’s look at him closely. Pros: tall, trained by Jabbar, has few post moves. CONS: slow, lacks aggressiveness, weak, poor footwork, lack of conditioning, non-athletic/soft, immature, questionable potential.
    What would we get in return in J.O.? Perennial all star, 28 years old in the prime of his career, coming off of good rehab and claiming 100% recovery. At least 5 more good years in him.
    Let’s do this trade. We already know what Lamar will bring each and every night (not that great). Bynum’s future is unknown but more likely that he flops given his pros vs. cons. Who cares if he’s only 19. If he’s 7’0″ and doesn’t have post moves by now, give it up. I had post moves at 6’0″ by age 16.

    Seriously, pull the trigger. Mitch, don’t be scared to make a mistake. You have to take chances to succeed as a manager. Jerry West made a lot of bad decisions but his good ones really etched his place in Laker management history. Also, look into Artest deeper, remember his history with J.O. Remember that eastern conf championship indiana team that only lost to Shaq and the lakers. Those 2 with Kobe could be a DEFENSIVE power w/ enough fire power to take down the big 3 (dallas, phoenix, san antonio) for the next 4 to 5 years.
    Pros of getting these 2. Kobe stays, tickets sell out every game, jersey sales skyrocket, Kobe’s popularity to new heights, Mitch becomes gm of the year, Buss gets richer and finds himself on the wrong side of the road with a hot 21 year old 5 years from now. YES!
    Cons: Kobe leaves, Bynum flops, Lamar blows out a knee ending his career, mediocrity for the next 7 years. Mitch goes down as the worst GM in Laker history, Buss gets mobbed by old angry fans, and worst of all, you lose me as a Laker fan!

    LET US DO SOMETHING ABOUT GETTING JO.

    We all agree that we need to get JO, and just confirming each other’s post and comments is not gonna get it done. We, all bloggers here, can make a difference right now. How?

    One way would be to bombard Lakers’ front office with emails. If you really wanna do something, please send emails to the Lakers’ management, their email address is:

    feedback@la-lakers.com

    Did you mean the name getgarnett is here to stay? I don’t like the idea of using it as something different. Everyone already knows it was a site dedicated to getting garnett.

    I was hoping for changes.

  • LakerNation1

    ummmm yeah

    im not one to nitpick but i can see what youre going with here. thing is, we all know what get garnett was originally for. to twist it around is just kinda lazy, not that im accusing u staff guys of being lazy (thats the last thing ill call u)

    but garnett is the least of our problems now. and by still keeping the GET GARNETT name, even if it now means for us to go after him and pretty much want to destroy him, thats still concentrating on one particular person.

    my personal opinion is to change the name into something that is Laker based. something that implies that we are a team, and we are one.

    no more garnett please. im sick of seeing his name on anything thats laker related.

    but anyways, thanks for the heads up.

    Thats BS. Everyone knows this site was made as the lakers tried to get garnett. That aint gonna happen now and everyone knows it. So whats the point of keeping the site name? All it does is shows the site is not updated on a regular basis and we feel there is only one solution to our problem.

    which is why we love this site so much. a lot of us like myself, go to this blog first thing in the morning. yes we can embrace on a new (revived)rivalry, but GET GARNETT is still on ONE GUY and its the guy that felt that we werent good enough for him and started spitting out lame excuses on why he didnt consider us. we love the site and appreciate for what it is very much. i just think that the name should absolutely be lakers based, with no hint of garnett whatsoever. garnett isnt good enough for lakers anymore for what he is. its not Los Angeles vs Garnett. Its Los Angeles vs. the NBA. I believe that most of us have moved on and got over garnett and anything involving him. its lakers all the way from here on out. thanks for your hard work.

    You are keeping the name???? I can’t believe it!!!
    Is this a joke, if it is, is a bad one.

    I just hope you guys don’t try and get people to buy in to a new concept that makes little sense. For example, you can’t just tell everyone the new concept is Boston vs. LA because many might not buy into this. For all we know, we only play Boston twice during the season and nothing big happens.

    I agree w/ the Lakers related site. I come here first thing in the morning and I come here more than any other laker site.

    I think its a good idea to wait. F*ck what we want. Its irrelevant weather or not we like the name, for now. We’ll still come here to check out the latest. You guys should wait ’til the team makes any changes. Lets just dream for a minute we could land a few(or a blockbuster) player to LA, that would be the right time to re-name the site. Or god forbid something happens, like K*** leaves, that might want you to name the site something totaly different.

  • Justin M.

    hZm, no offense, but if the Lakers don’t make a move for a star to play with Kobe and Odom then its not going to be much of a rivalry. Its goning to be like the Kings and Lakers so called “rivalry”. Like Charles Barkely said,”How can the Kings be rivals with the Lakers if the Kings never beat the Lakers in the playoffs”. So I hope you can see why I’m not so hyped up about the “rivalry” just yet.

    not to be an ass or anything, but of course the name of the site is important. granted that the stuff inside the site is simply THE BEST THING REGARDING THE LAKERS. but the name itself defines the site, and supports the info that is given.

    getgarnett was dedicated to not only support the movement for a better laker team, but mainly to the movement of getting KG to LA. thats what got us here in the first place. KG.

    KG is gone. and i dont care about his sorry butt bc he didnt make too much of an effort to even try and give us a legit reason why he didnt come. but i digress….

    kg gone. get garnett, over.

    its time for LAKERS. and the site should be based on the team itself, and not just one person. not even kobe.

    im sure u guys are sick of hearing our complaints, but u have to understand that we enjoy your blog site very much. and it would be uncomfortable for us fans to support this site when the name of it just brings back to the person who pretty much blew us off for money. that is not what lakers should be defined as.

    getgarnett = LA got brushed off by some money seeking leech.

    we are better than garnett, and his name shoudnt be anywhere near the banner of this site unless it says how much he sucked against the lakers this upcoming season.

    we understand that a possible rivalry may be coming. but that still means we’re talking about garnett. no more garnett. its all about the lakers.

    Lakers > Garnett in every freakin’ possible way.

    my friend, i understand full heartedly. and i do enjoy this site very much like a lot of fans here. but getgarnett was such a huge movement to try to get him to our team. and when he went to boston, u as a fan and developer of this site can understand how much that hurt Laker Nation. to use getgarnett as a way of saying, GET GARNETT and kill him, that again is concentrating on our bitterness towards him and the green team.

    us fans can pretty much hate the celtics as much as we hate the suns, but overall, we love our team, and can care less about the other teams. especially the celtics. the name of this great site should represent the site for what it is, and it is a blog about the Lakers, for Laker fans. we can care less about Garnett.

    u wouldnt want some guy like garnett representing and headlining this great site would u? i wouldnt…

  • cyrus

    LD2K, Nugget and hZm,

    Could you give us a good reason for keeping the name? Changing the meaning of it like the movies “Get Carter” or “Get Shorty” in a rivalry sense, I am sorry to say, but it’s childish and nonsense in my humble opinion.

    If you’re concerned about people not finding you, you can always keep the name on your service provider and redirect it to the new name. You know that.

    I think you guys are rather in disagreement with each other, which is very common and normal between partners. Maybe you should put it up for vote on the homepage. Something like:

    Change the name now:
    Change the name later:
    Don’t change the name at all:

    Let us vote on this. Please. It’s about us, the fans. We have a voice.

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

    LakerNation1, I understand what you are saying, I really do. At first, I really wanted to change the title of the blog. I was 100% for it to be changed. But as time went on, I started to think about more and more…

    The reason why we created this site is to demand the Lakers front office that a change needs to be done. We wanted Garnett, we needed Garnett, damn it. But why did we need Garnett? To win a championship, of course.

    Now, that his gone to the Celtics, “Get Garnett” took a different meaning to us; “Get Talent” that can take us to the promise land. Bring us a superstar that can ball with Kobe, get us talent that plays hard every night and cares about winning for his team…

    Get us a Garnett!

    Holy sh!t is it really that hard to read? I just figured out why the site name hasnt been changed! They arnt creative enough to come up with something new. If they cant read, how can they be creative?

    Keeping the site names GIVES THE ILLUSION that you guys gave up. It GIVES THE ILLUSION the sites not updated. If the site name is getgarnett.com, and we CAN’T get garnett, it GIVES THE ILLUSION you guys gave up on getting help because garnett was the only player that could help.

    Another question, why make a post saying what should the new site name be, we need the fans opinions because thats what the site is about if you’re not going to listen to any of the fans opinions and just do it your way?

    but ok, lets say we all get what u mean, and i for one certainly do and u know where i stand. but lets say we have newcomers to the blog later on as the season progresses. wouldnt a new site supporter be like…wtf? get garnett? what does he have to do with anything with the lakers? and if that new comer is like any of the current blog readers today, he/she would be like, f’ garnett.

    Somethingsomethinglakers.com would pretty much hint us of what is inside right? oooo the lakers. i like the lakers, im gonna read.

    getgarnett.com, didnt garnett go to the celtics? geez, laker fans sure know how to NOT MOVE ON.

    that getgarnett twist you guys came up with is kinda cute and all, but lets get real. once the season starts up and we’re all up in this blog, we all can care less or would even mention garnett until LA vs Boston comes up.

    and everyone should understand why the staff wants to keep the name. it doesnt mean u have to like it, i sure dont. but lets not start talking as if we own the site. i mean, if i was a developer, i can easily just go, f’ it, site closed. so lets not be too harsh and meet halfway on how the new changes should be.

    I truly believe that our beloved GG creators and staff are in disagreement among themselves. It’s normal and it promotes creativity. However, changing the name of this site is so crucial that there shouldn’t be any discussions or disagreements about it. It needs to be changed.

    Just look at all this comment on this page, except one or two, everybody agrees in changing the name of this site. You don’t believe me, put it out for vote! What are you afraid of?

    Cyrus, none of the creators are in disagreement.

    Now thats what I’m talking bout just like I said in one of my old posts the staff at GetGarnett know where I’m comin from and feel what I feel about bringin back the old Lakers and Celtic rivalry I grew up in that era and I have to say those were the best times of the NBA and one of the best rivalry’s ever but I still agree w/others that the site name needs to be changed so BRING ON THE BAD BLOOD AND LET THE PURPLE AND GOLD BLEEED!!!!!!

    hZm,

    “Cyrus, none of the creators are in disagreement.”
    That is great news and makes me feel a whole lot better. But still I have difficulties to understand your point of wanting to keep the name.

    You are at the most critical juncture, any decision as to how to take it from here, is very crucial and matter of survival. In my opinion and many bloggers on this page, keeping the name is asking for trouble.

    Hang on…..GetGarnett was and is and still is a cause. The cause is still obviously understood by all that visits the site. The content of the site is the most important issue. Everyone comes here because they know the information is current and good. The visitors to this site are passionate just like the GG creators. These GG guys bust their ass with this thing. I like the fact that it is fresh and compelling and provocative. This is a LAKERS site first ! Any other fun we have with it is just that….fun! Fan base interaction is what makes this site what it is. Whatever the name…I am still bookmarking it and coming in.The creators deserve a chance to show us what they have in mind. Give them a chance !

    How about crybabies.com? The acquisition of Garnett and Allen has made the Celtics a much better team than the Lakers. So after years in the basement, we welcome this return of the rivalry. Have you come to grips with the fact that Kobe Bryant is a destructive personality? If you really want to win another championship, then you should demand Mitch Kupchak trade that whiny, bitchy, overrated, egomaniacal fool.

    Just enjoy the site and have a nice day. :)[/quote]

    hZm, nugget, ld2k, and the rest of the GG staff,

    I dont really want to tell you guys what to do with the site because you guys have done an excellent job already, 30mill hits speaks for itself.
    But THE NAME HAS TO CHANGE, the posts in this thread should be evidence enough.
    This site isnt about “getting someone” “getting talent” “getting a garnett” its about the Lakers. The core value of this entire site, what brings this site to existence is the Lakers. Its all about the LAKERS. I understand that it is just a name, but the NAME of this site should represent the content it shows, any relation to a player thats not even a Laker should be disregarded instantly, and all this content is related to one thing and one thing only the LOS ANGELES LAKERS. This site name needs to REPESENT the Lakers and nothing else. Reconsider your decision 70 or so post agree.

    If you guys are looking for something on the lines of “get us a garnett” /someone who can ball with Kobe. Atleast make it Lakers related, because anything that says garnett isnt, maybe make tribute to former Lakers that helped us win back in the days Get-West/Worthy/Magic/Kareem/Baylor. JUST MAKE SURE THE NAME IS LAKERS RELATED.

    Im honestly beginning to feel you guys dont care what the fans, who are thes ones who make this site successful, want. Its clear 95% of the people who visit this site (as proven in this post) want the site name changed. Yet you guys continue to argue its better to keep it at getgarnett, when in fact we cannot get garnett.
