      this is a lie!!!!???? right?? lol

    • selam57

      no way !

    • lakerboi

      This game is way too serious to be playing around with the unifoms. Players should be focused on the game and winning, not focused on what the fans are thinking…bad call on FO if true.

      This would only be fair if the Celtics were doing the same.

    • LD2k

      Guys, I’m NOT lying.

      I’ve known about it for a while, but couldn’t say anything for several reasons.

    • http://mydeek.orgnigga PhantoM

      Thx for the update, imma tell everyone on the net

    • Felix

      You sound serious so I guess I’m a believer. Wow never would have crossed my mind that it’d be possible.

    • lakersarepansies

      your lakers have no balls

    • Caleb

      LOLOLOLOL. Maybe they want the Celtics to be distracted.

    • lakerfan81

      I was watching the Lakers Celtics rivalry stuff on NBA TV today (instead of cleaning my carpets and doing laundry like I was supposed to be doing), they were showing they were showing the game 6 of the 87 finals. It was awesome and now I learn the Lakers are going to be where the 87-88 jerseys and the short shorts. Now all I need to see is Bynum do a skyhook a la Kareem.

    • nyla

      If we lose, I want them burned!

    • Lakers 24 7

      lmao i cant wait to see this, wow

    • r3dempti0n

      seriously? really? that’ll be weird.. but a sight to see. lol. really?

    • nyla

      I’m not feeling it at all. lol I don’t like throwbacks and I don’t like those hideous short shorts. The should just say screw it and go out and wear speedos.

      I agree with Lakerfan. I wanna see a shyhook from Bynum!

    • Billy Kupchak

      LD2K’s announcement is a FACT! :-D

    • http://hhb PHANT0M

    • The Nugget

      We’ve known this for awhile now but we were under strict order not to tell anyone ’til a few hours before showdown.

      Should be a fun game. :D

    • Lakers

      haha I cant wait to laugh

    • RD

      god ol mighty! please no! we’ll be the laughing stock of the season! but as a laker fan u cant help but laugh at it if they do bust out the short shorts. hopefully they’ll be mid-90s short shorts. the mid-shorts.

    • http://hhb PHANT0M

    • http://hhb PHANT0M

      Kick back big gay Steve. Nobody here wants to know what’s going on in that sick little mind of yours.

    • Lakers 24 7

      Reffs piissed me off, so many dumb calls like wow
      Nice tackle by Lamar, must be trying out for the NFL next season lol

    • Michael_23

      Lakers trying to be funny or somethin’? This game wasn’t all that funny.

      Celtics are scary.

    • keep24

      Someone should get fired for this game!

      I know everyone had a bad shooting night and all, but why tonight. This was a special night!

      And, please, someone stop Lamar from shooting those threes.

      The game plan was so simple:

      1. Bynum – inside first and then out.
      2. KB – drive to the rim, draw players, kick out to AB for easy dunks.
      3. Ariza – slash to the rim, all the long.

      How hard is that? That’s just bad coaching!!!!!!!!!!

    • http://hhb PHANT0M

      Dont blame this all on lamar..
      Kobe 6 for 25???

      Bynum got into early foul trouble
      and the 3′s arent what concerned me from lamar, it was those missed
      layups during the 1st half.. We had it down to like 6 at the end of the 3rd but then we crumbled..

      Anyways dont look back, go forward, and get ready for philly. cheese.

    • MILO

      i think it’s safe to say the reff’s had something to do with this loss

    • Left

      I think it’s safe to say we’ll never see those short shorts again.

    • drake hunter

      Refs dictated the Laker come back and momentum in the third quarter. Lakers got it down to 6 when Pierce drove the lane and Kwame stood in to take a charge. Oh wait, refs called a foul on Kwame instead sending Pierce to the line to complete a 3 point play. If that play had been called the way it should have been Lakers could have come back down and maybe scored a 2 or 3 pointer and cut the lead to 3 sending Celtics to a timeout with Lakers having momentum and confidence builder. Instead they get more fustrated and take a bad shot and it became a blowout from there.

      there was alot more questionable calls than just that one but yes that one was important

    • ab4sure

      [Comment ID #21022 Will Be Quoted Here]

      blame the refs… oh plz… are we in hs??? we got blown out, accept it like a man.

    • Majic “Big” Johnson

      We need another piece guys. Straight up..

      This game was basically our measuring stick and it shows tonight that for us to compete at the next level, we need another piece.

      As far as the short-shorts go, he unless the Celts were doing it themselves we shouldn’t have done it. As a player it would have gotten to mentally if they were taunting about the shorts.

    • Daniel

      I couldn’t understand some parts of this article G NEWS: Lakers to make “short” work out of Celtics tonight at The Lakers Nation – “We Follow Because We Believe.”, but I guess I just need to check some more resources regarding this, because it sounds interesting.

    • John Fredrickson

      Guys, those shorts were BOTH 80′s and 90′s- some guys wore the shorts from the 80′s, but most of them, Kobe especially, wore the kind from the early 90′s! Now I know you’re all too young to remember the 80′s, but back then guys off the court wore that style! They weren’t sports shorts, no, just regular shorts for going ANYWHERE! They were the norm, TONS of guys wore that style, and we just called them shorts, not short-shorts! If you don’t believe me, just check out Flicker under 80′s and shorts, and see how many people have pictures of theirself wearing those NORMAL shorts!
