Farmar & Sasha need top step it up. Our backcourt is weak without Kobe in the game.

check out how miserable they are

vs. Sixers: 8/17 FGs (47.1%) +/- -70 (Kobe -9). Bench blows it big time.
vs. Mavericks: 4/17 FGs (24%) +/- -36 (Kobe +22). Starters closed it out strong after bench lost it.

vs. Phoenix: 7/20 FGs +/- 0 (Kobe -11). Result: Smacked by Phoenix.
vs. Jazz: Bench shot 3/19, had a total +/- of -48. (Kobe at +4) Lakers get blown out.
Vs. Phoenix: 22/48, +/- of +37 (Kobe at +26). Lakers romp.
Vs. Thunder: 11/22, +/- of -3 (Kobe at +17). Lakers need Kobe late to win.
Vs. Minnesota: 7/18, +/- of -6 (Kobe at 0). Lakers eke one out.
Vs. Hornets: 5/20, +/- of -75 (Kobe at +19). Kobe smashes in OT.
Vs. Warriors: 13/27, +/- of -13 (Kobe at +12). Lakers come from behind to win.

Well, it seems that Sasha is getting better lately and he's obviously working his [expletive] off to get better. You can tell he's angry when he's struggling and he's said that he has "no idea" why he is struggling so much. I just feel like the guy shouldn't get so much blame.

I'm saying it now(and I've said it billions of times), Sasha will be one of our best postseason players. Trust me...

well the bench doesn't have as much talent with Ariza and Odom promoted. to combat this talent deficiency, they need to work together... and obviously they havent been doing much of that lately.

the lead guard does not lead the offense and make basic passes while the shooting guard has forgotten how to shoot. both are below-average finishers and are average defenders - and to top if off, they don't seem to like each other that much.

powell does everything he's supposed to do, but he's not a super sub by any means
mbenga is the same
walton is up and down, depending on the team. mostly does what he's capable of but he's not capable of much.

odom/gasol don't demand the ball and therefore rack up minutes yet are never involved in the offense.

Oh no doubt, I definitely agree with you. I can almost guarantee it's Sasha that's causing that. I mean, wouldn't you be angry?

Sometimes you have to put yourself in someone's shoes to really know what someone is going through. Imagine knowing you have the talent to be good but it seems that, no matter what you do, things just aren't going your way. That's why none of this surprises me, I'm happy he's angry. It would be so much worse if he was doing nothing about it.

Trust me. It's fine. We've solved all pre-existing problems. We know each other perfect so if there was ever a time where something would go wrong, we know how to solve it.

We aren't planning on living together for a long time, we just wanna get used to the early years of adulthood knowing that there is someone there to help you. After that, who knows?



We'll bounce back and get the W. I guarantee we will. If we don't, I'll do whatever you want me to. Trust me.


I would love to go tomorrows game. Sasha is gonna have a big game, trust me.



Oh trust me, she is the greatest friend you could ask for. I've brought up this situation before to her but i forget what she said. I'm going out to dinner with her either Friday or V-Day, I'll definitely bring it up again.



I believe he is labeled as a "chucker". So, like you said, when his shots aren't going in, he's screwed. And he's expected to make those shots so when he makes them, people think "Well, he's supposed to make those shots." and when he misses, everyone instantly thinks "we need to trade him".

Honestly, I dont see him as a shooter though. I see him as a guy who's still trying to find out what his best skill is. Going into this year, everyone had high expectations of him being one of the best 3 point shooters in the league. I, in all honesty, just wanted him to play hard 100% and win games.

As one of(if not the only) Jake Plummer's biggest fans, I saw how he was disrespected in Denver even though he had a ridiculous winning record.(39-15) Ya, he was known for throwing a lot of interceptions but all he did was win games.

Why I bring that up is because I don't wanna see Sasha leave and see this team struggle without him.(Have you seen Jay Cutler's record with Denver, already has more losses than Plummer did in his 4 years with Denver)

They may bring in some new guy, some hotshot. And even though his stats may look good, the W-L record wont be. Just trust me.



He'll get there, trust me.


Sasha definitely doesn't seem like the kind of guy who would do that. I don't think it's that big a deal, he may have done it jokingly and they took it more serious than it had to be.

I can't do that, what do I say....? :lol:



Oh....Ouch, ouch, ouch! Wow....

You are my least favorite member now. BUT! You have now waken me up from my season long slumber and from now on, I'll be focusing on the game more because what you said hurt me and I don't wanna hear that ever again.

Trust me... :hmm:


Sasha would've at least fouled him.(that's not the joke)

Did you see Phil's post-game? Trevor didn't understand that they had a foul to give....

Trust me, I'm as mad as you are.



Trust me babe, the only way she can replace you as my favorite member is if she posted like crazy, which will definitely NOT happen. She knows nearly nothing about the Lakers, except for the players' names. She will probably be known as an off-topic poster, nothing else.

You, you are my favorite no doubt. :yes:

I think you've been watching that TNT show too much. Trust me.

You actually said it way more times but I had to delete it because it said I posted too many quotes. The first time you said it was like in October.
