Should it be considered a game-winner ? Surely it was the the go-ahead shot, but the Lakers scored after that on that Kobe freethrow ..

That's true but the free throw was pretty meaningless because he missed the first one and they went for the three to win the game, so even if it was 93-92 we still would have won either way.

The game-winner is always the last FG the winning team scores.

Oh haha my bad. So he's a few ahead now? It has been awhile since he hit one

I don't know the official count, I just remember adding to the total a couple of years ago, on my forums...and I used ESPN's totals for MJ to compare.

Yup, add one to the total!!! Now we gotta go home and get some wins. The good thing is we don't have any more tough road games against East teams remaining, since we don't play at Chicago this season. Our toughest road games left will probably be at OKC and Portland. At least we don't have any more games at Denver or Utah, so our road record should improve

Yeah he has been ahead for awhile and probably cuz Jordan's teams usually wrapped up many games in the third quarter unlike the lakers who seem to have the game in doubt til the very end many times.

At this point, every road game is a tough game for us.

So true. we rarely EVER blow teams out.

Look at all the earlier pages talking bad about every member of the Lakers by "fans" and now they win on a Kobe gamewinner and everyone's calling hum clutch again.

Either be faithful from the get go or admit you're wrong. But don't start bashing the team every witch way saying you wonder if we're any good at all and then act like you knew we'd win all along.

The team is no good. Barely winning against the Raptors is hardly a statement supporting otherwise. We were up big to start the game, and the Raptors started pushing the tempo, controlling it, and our bigs took themselves out of the game on the glass and in the paint. It will happen every game.

Fans have the right to criticize this team, doesn't matter if we win this game or not. The Lakers are not a contender, despite having a superstar who is one of the greatest to ever play this game, teamed with two all-star big men and a bunch of shooters who SHOULD be making their shots.

I almost crapped my pants when Kobe passed the ball back to Metta for that layup. He barely made that shot.

Raptors commentators...

"Let's count to make sure he got the timeout in before the five seconds."
"One, one thousand."
"Two, one thousand."
"Three, one thousand."








"Four, one thousand."









"Five, one thousand."






"Yep, he got it, right there."

A win is a win, so I'll take it. As expected, Calderón dropped 25+ (30 pts exactly) on the Lakers. When will Mitch do anything to stop this bleeding?

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

what was that GP?


Don't act like you always had faith you were one of the major bashers saying we were gonna lose this game and being negative in here.

You can't be all "this team sucks lol we aren't gonna win" even loling at people saying we're gonna win. So then Kobe hits the gamewinner and you want to talk trash to the guy that said Kobe was gonna choke.

Either have faith from the start or don't at all.

let me save you guys some time and quote my fellow TLN members. "a win is a win no matter how ugly" "trade pau and bynum for Dwight" "we need a pg" "Kobe shooting to much" " Fisher too old" " i hope mitch is watching " "i hope Otis smith is watching" "sign arenas" "amnesty Luke" "our bench sucks" feel free to add to this list



and you were right along with them.

That is all ^_^

Criticizing is one thing. But Criticizing, making fun of, and conceding the win to the other team while laughing at people that say we'll come back and win, and then when we win act like they were faithful the whole time and call out people that were talking down to the team when they were in the same boat 5 minutes ago is another :)

I am not wavering, this team blows and would be lucky to make it out of the first round.

Lucky? So you would bet against this team having 5 playoff wins this postseason.
