My name is Brandon, and I'm a huge NBA, Kobe Bryant and Los Angeles Lakers fan (in that order, sorry guys). I love to play ball as much as I do watching it. I would be a shooting guard if I played college ball...not much of a point guard. I can create my own shot, I have very good handles, and I can shoot on anyone. Unfortunately, I suffered a shattered ankle, and combined with diabetes (I'm a Type I diabetic), doctors would not give me a cleared physical to play.

I started OTRBasketball (an all-NBA board) back in 2005 to build a message board that stressed the word "community." From the first day, my focus was on member relationships, not post count or activity (as you see with almost every other board out there). I wanted to find my dedicated guys first. My intentions are to own OTRBasketball until the end, and there's no plan on ending it anytime soon. OTR will never change ownership (unless I'm planted into the Earth, for some reason), and I will never stop pushing the site, these members or myself on our way to becoming one of, if not the, best basketball message board on the net.

After a long stint on another Lakers message board as a 6,000 post contributor, I made the decision to come here to TLN and leave that particular board behind. I've done all coding for the forums (not the images), and I'm as good of an admin and poster as I am an owner at OTR, so you can expect big things from me in the future.

Time to make TLN's message board the best out there, hands down. You'll see...I'll show ya. http://lakernation.c...tyle_emoticons/default/laughing.gif

Good to see you posting on a Laker forum again. Don't worry... I'm still going to post at OTR. :rock:

You forgot to tell everybody that you hate Odom.

Real Deal is a Odom hater. :o

It's not so much that I hate Odom, it's that I hate missed layups, Casper imitations in the fourth quarter, and no defense. :rock:

Gasol does the same thing... I don't see you hating on Gasol. Gasol misses layups, Casper imitations in the fourth quarter, and plays no defense.

Odom was our 2nd best player in the playoffs.Posted Image

He's playing out of position. We have tried sticking Odom everywhere, minus the free agent pool (so excited for that).

I hate to break your heart, but Odom is not going to be traded. He's retiring in the purple and gold. The Lakers will resign him next season.

I just want Ron, or I want Odom to walk and we sign someone else. Odom doesn't belong in the triangle offense. He may be a good player, but he's not the right player for us after four long seasons with him.

I do have fans, they are just afraid to take up for me on other sites sometimes, because their posts get deleted, or they get personally attacked with no staff moderating for them.
