RD1 GM7: Denver at LA Lakers
Posted May 11, 2012 - 12:20 AM
It will be epic.
Nothing to say concerning Kobe. He's doing what he's supposed to...and more.
Gasol needs to grow a pair. His job is to facilitate out of the post when Drew is on the bench, grab more than three damn rebounds, and hit his mid-range jumpers.
Bynum should be walking into Game 7 with a better attitude, joining the team in all huddles. Each time he catches in the post, he needs to go up with it immediately. Also, his help defense has been garbage. Great job in getting 16 boards...didn't do a damn thing other than that, though, and we didn't sign him up to play like Danny Fortson (who was always brought in to rebound a ball, and he would average 16+ boards PER 36).
Sessions has to shoot the ball when he has anything open inside of 23 feet.
Barnes needs to focus solely on defense, little scoring.
Brown has to play Artest quite a bit, avoid the small three-guard lineup because it's horrible. Blake cannot defend anyone on Denver's roster, and he cannot create for anyone on ours, so the less time, the better.
Win or bust. This is it. I expected every bit of this. Mike Brown knew we couldn't run the "four in, one out" offense because running an offense through Bynum requires shooters, and it was obviously not going to work from the start. In addition to that, it would mean that Drew takes a few less shots than he wants, facilitating a bit more than usual, and Brown should have known that Drew already thinks he's a [expletive]ing superstar franchise player.
A big thank you, in advance, to Kobe (who has worked his ass off trying to win this series) and Jordan Hill (who I had high expectations for, but not this soon...and he has hustled more than any other big we have).
Let's see who will be the lucky team to get their asses kicked by the Thunder.

No matter what happens I just hope our guys come out with a lot of intensity, passion, and energy. Play defense and communicate with one another. If things go south I hope our guys don't just give up, rebound, attack, and play D with everything you got.
Win or go home, time is now, lets do it guys!
Purple and Gold.

Anyway, the only thing I expect is the whole Lakers Nation inside the Staples Center to boo Pau Gasol and then Andrew Bynum. They deserve it.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Oh well hopefully the crowd is crazy loud and the players show up. Also hope Denver is nervous or something and has a bad game.

Hopefully Ron can bring that energy on both ends of the floor. I'm actually excited to have him back.
