Get used to it Doc, the Lakers aren’t the same team from 2008.

Yahoo! Sports: Two months after the Boston Celtics lost the NBA championship to the Los Angeles Lakers, Doc Rivers was back in town, this time charged with escorting his son Austin to a prep all-star game. Such was Rivers’ luck that his weekend stay in Lakers Nation required a drive past Staples Center, site of the Celtics’ bitter Game 7 loss. “It still hurts the same,” Rivers said. “That won’t go away. I had dinner with [Rajon] Rondo and ‘Baby’ [Glen Davis] in Vegas and they were talking about how much it hurts. I said, ‘I hope it hurts you for the rest of your life. It should.’ ”

      How can you even talk after us winning 2 NBA titles in a row. It just makes you look stupider. You probably have a bunch of Lakers sites bookmarked…You’re just a closet Lakers fan with bad spelling.

      You know you need a life when you go on a team you dont likes website and talk out of your ass. Pathetic LOSER!

  • 242LakerFan

    Jesus, Doc! Still whining like a little girl…11 weeks later! This time two years ago, you think Kobe and Fish were whining over a soggy lunch with PJ, or working out just how to get back and win it all? I think even laffs atu knows the answer to that one; she just won’t admit it.

    • ceballos-neverforget

      I gotta disagree with you there. We had our fair share of whining going on when we lost in 2008. Its easy to forget now with two titles in a row, but Kobe has plenty of media soundbytes of being bitter; hell, the players didn’t even allow green in their locker room the next season, sasha even threw away or burned any clothing he had that was green. Granted, I think it’s a little silly for Doc to be giving most of the “woe is me” soundbytes, cuz Phil is a pillar and would never let a loss sting him like that. But that’s also probably why he has 11 rings!

      Much respect tho 242lakerfan, you’re always well thought out in your comments. One of the few educated regulars on this site!

      • 242LakerFan

        Thanks for the props.
        You’re right about the whining after 08, but I think the salient point is that it wasn’t coming from Phil and, in fact, the rhetoric by this time was turning towards things like Kobe saying “We weren’t tough enough. We need to get tougher, physically and mentally.”

  • The artist formally know as Brown Hater

    I hope the Celtics are 100% healthy this season so when they lose there will be no more whining and no more excuses. Geez that all boston has done for the last 2 seasons is bitch about how they would be world champs if there team was healthy it’s getting old

    • Leo

      Yeah, screw them. Kobe had a screwed up finger, and Bynum played injured for the entire series. Perk was injured/out for 2 games.

  • http://deardis.daportfolio.com/ DirtyHurtz_tha_DieHard

    Feels weird to say this but for the sake of the NBA I will be pulling (not rooting I kan’t do that) for Boston to come outta of tha east… Despite that fact that we hate Boston we also can’t deny the fact that they awesome adversaries they do have complete team and they work they’re asses off the only real bitch on the team is Paul Perice (I just can’t his phukin face…ugh!!!) movin on. The reason I’m saying this is because I’d rather see a REAL TEAM win it all; even if it’s Boston…. (oooh..that hurt) then to see some over hyped snot-nosed spoiled bitch made bastards who want to wanna take the easy route just so they can win a ring. If the Heat are successful it will completely ruin basketball. Think about it… what if the Heat were to just plow through the NBA next 5 years straight (ain’t happening but what if??)… where is the rivalry? where the competitiveness?, where the growth?… the process of putting a REAL team together and watching them gel through rough times and the finally one day be on top is the real reason we love basketball. I don’t love the Lakers just because they have 16 rings. I love the Lakers because no matter what they always play good, hard, team basketball. That’s the real we love basketball it ain’t the damn rings and stats… its watching those moments where those 5 guys gel together and get it right. So Boston for you wanna see us again stop bitching, suck up, and meet us on the other side…

    faith of the NBA is in our hands.

    • Leo

      The only reason why we would want to face Boston again would be to shut them up about all of the ref and injury whining that they’ve been doing. Realistically, most Lakers fans want to beat the Heat, since we already beat Boston. Being realistic, a lot of us don’t even feel that the Heat will reach the finals, though.

      • DirtyHurtz_tha_DieHard

        Yep.. You got a good point there; we know we can beat Boston… So it would be the ultimate ending for Phil’s career and the ultimate satisfaction for Kobe to be the be the team That destroyed “Voltron”

  • lakers_The_Truth

    F-U-C-K you Doc.
    Stop crying like a little B-i-a-t-c-h!!!!!

  • Robert.

    Sorry, Doc. It’s gonna hurt a lot more this year. Our Lakers have improved, and if you even make it to the Finals, we welcome your ‘starting (older, cough) 5′. Avg. weight and age have increased, and it’s really tough to drag all that weight down the court for 2 years of a long season, in a row.
    .
    I suspect your team will play ‘angry’ during the year, which is also not good. It leads to injuries (like Perk had) throughout and toward the end of the ‘long’ year. When will you realize that injuries are part of the game? You can’t play your players hard all year long without incurring injuries. That’s also what led to KG getting injured in 2009. Pushing it too hard, and they are ‘not’ lean players on your team. Gotta pace it.
    .
    So, ‘stop the blood clot cryin’ – be a man. Strategy (shouldn’t give this away, but will anyway) – play ‘easy’ during the year. Don’t worry about home court. Get a top 4 seed (good enough in East). Play your bench more during the year – give the starters a rest. Worry more about the post season.
    .
    Save your toughest play for the Heat, and then get ready to lose ‘again’ to the Lakers. But …. it won’t take 7 games this time.

  • NBAmazigKB24

    Get passed the Heat!
    I still want to see the Boston Vs. Lakers
    1-1 according to DOC

  • http://AOL NICK PEREZ

    ALL I GOT TO SAY IS THAT YOU CANT BE A NEW CHAMPION UNTIL YOU CAN D THROWN US LAKERS FROM BEING THE TEAM TO BEAT SO ALL YOU HEAT AND LEAPRICONS OUT THERE BE AWARE.

  • http://rivalmedia.tv chris ekstedt

    he’s right. it should hurt. it should hurt a lot. when you mess with the lakers you get cut up, not bruised.

    you don’t mess with a grizzly bear and expect to walk away with a bruise. your gonna get hurt and it’s gonna hurt bad. so yeah they shoudl be in pain for the rest of their lives.

      • 3 Peat Part 2

        Laffs atu is a pathetic ass fool. Can’t let that fool push a button or two. I admit, once you got nationality involved then thats a bit different. I was born here but family from El Salvador. Sometimes we say things out of anger.

  • http://57.amklac laffs atu

    his defensive game retired a couple years ago..with GASOFT doing all the heavy lifting(like shaq did)why not leech another ring,maybe.

    • keeponkeepinon18

      That is too funny. You call him Ga”soft” yet you say he does the “heavy” lifting xD

      • JOSH IN DA 310

        thats so true! Now we know what a idiot this guy Laffs atu really is. fucking pathetic. Gasoft yet he does the heavy lifting? Dude go get your G.E.D from continuation school…like 10 years later LMAO

      • TOUCHING_MYSELF

        LOL! That’s a great catch keeponkeepinon18! Plus, say he’s right about Kobe’s defensive game being retired… so the fcuk what? He keeps winning rings though don’t he? Isn’t that all that matters at the end of the day or his career? Sh!t!

        Gain some perspective and then come up in here! Sounding like an idiot hater just throwin out sounds bites after sound bites that she picked up from others. Not an original thought in that pea brain of hers.

    • Showtime4eva

      That’s what I mean.your such a shit head talking outta your ass. Always contradicting yourself.nothing you say means shit. You are an absolute stupid FUCK!! Just keeping it real! GO LAKERS!!

      • Celtics Suck Salty Nuts

        Showtime, if you and others really mean that what the troll says means nothing, prove it. What ever happened to the days when this site’s regulars were saying that we shouldn’t give him/her the attention? What is so hard about it? I have never had the urge to answer to irrelevant posts like that.

        You have to mean what you say. Otherwise, what you’re saying could be the same thing that you label laffs atu’s posts as. No offense, just reminding you all of your words. 242 used to tell you guys to stop paying attention. What’s up with that now?

        • 242LakerFan

          It never made a difference, so now I’m just having my fun with her and using her for the Laker groupie she is.

  • keeponkeepinon18

    I’m glad Doc Rivers continues to let us Laker fans smile in his misery…

    to make a laker fan smile….welfare check?its kind of easy.

    • bostonSUCKS88

      im curious, who is your favorite team?

      • Showtime4eva

        This sick pile of shit. Doesn’t like basketball. He’s only super gay for lebra Jane. If he did like basketball he would appreciate the greatest player and the greatest team. That’s Kobe and the lakers.

      • JOSH IN DA 310

        THAT spineless piece of cock sucking shit isn’t a man to even like sports. He jacks off to his own stupid comments and to our responses. I tried to ignore this moron but he needs to know that I will gladly set him on fire if I ever met him. I wish one day we’re at a bar and run into eachother and he drunkenly tells me he’s Laff atu, I would knock his fucking teeth out and post the pics on this site. a trophy for us all. I dare you Laffs atu to randomly tell people who u are and i bet you will get your skull caved in. dare u pussy!!

    • bostonSUCKS88

      still no answer? its a simple question. im sure u have have a favorite team

      • 242LakerFan

        She’s a Laker groupie with sado-masochistic sociopathy. There’s no other team for her, because here she can be abusive and get all the abuse she wants in return. It’s a symbiotic relationship. She gets to lash out and express her twisted love for Kobe and she gets the satisfaction of the abuse we heap back on her. It keeps her grounded. If she didn’t do this, she’d be taking hostages at Staples Ctr. with an AK-47 wearing frilly panties made of C4.

    • DRE1984LA

      Boy we all know you some scrawny faggot that lives at home and stay locked in the room beating off to kobe’s pics

  • Robert.

    One last word (from me) on the Doc Rivers river of tears.
    .
    I was actually very upset at the 2008 Lakers loss. But it was clear (at that time) that the refs missed a ton of ‘moving screen’ calls on KG and others (that they ‘corrected’ this year, btw), and made too many calls on the Lakers on the order of “The Lakers are not a physical team, so they tend to foul when they just hand check, etc. – the Celtics, however, ARE a physical team, so they are just playing normal, not fouling, when they are knocking down the opponents”. The reff’ing in 2008 was decidedly lopsided, so they did not let the teams ‘truly’ play.
    .
    It hurt me (and I’m sure many others), MOSTLY for that reason. It was like Commodus stabbing Maximus in Gladiator, before the fight. The latter was already at a disadvantage, and now was spilling blood for the final battle. The NBA gave that championship to the Celtics, by not ‘checking’ the refs. But they corrected things.
    .
    This year, the Celtics suffered by playing ‘their own’ game. They play rough and hard, and that leads to injuries. They’re very big men, and that amplifies the chances of injuries (c.f., Perk). Rivers shouldn’t be crying – they played the game ‘their’ way, with fair officiating. They lost ‘fair and square’. All things considered, the Lakers were a better team than the Celtics, both this year and in 2008.
    .
    Even though I was upset, no blood-clot crying. I knew the Lakers would regroup and win the following year (and surprise, the following 2 years, and maybe 3).
    .
    Perhaps Doc knew that this was his last chance. He might think that the upcoming year is the last chance, but the curve is dropping FAST. OK, maybe I see why he is crying. It is difficult to even get to the Finals. He should just take his ‘one ring’, and covet that. There are plenty of great stories to tell his grandkids. Just don’t tell them how many tears you shed, man.
    .
    Or as the great Coach Herm Edwards says, “Be a man. Put your name on it”.
    .
    Be a man, Doc – put your name on it. Play to win the game.

  • Guatematic87

    I’d like to see Boston in the Finals again next year, in my eyes the Finals series is tied 1-1 right now, Boston winning in 08, LA winning it this year.

    I don’t think it’s hard to imagine Kobe see’s it that way too, he’ll want to win 2 against the Celtics since they beat him once. Not to mention he’ll be able to beat Shaq in the Finals.

  • R.I.P Laffs atu
