Thank God! I think the first game was a pretty big deal but after that, they were just a media driven match-up. Hopefully, there’s a Lakers/Suns game instead. Those are always fun… Sometimes.

Miami Herald: After three years, the NBA and ABC wisely concluded the novelty has worn off Shaq vs. Kobe/Heat vs. Lakers on Christmas. Instead, word is the NBA will have the Heat play in Cleveland on Christmas, creating a Dwyane Wade vs. LeBron James matchup.

    They played off that hype for too long, but expect a Durant vs. Oden thrown in there somewhere, on a day where there will be few, if not only one, games.

    I wouldn’t mind seeing a Mavs/Warriors game… Those were intense!

    lmfao jerry west is 33, the guy who chose them must be a sport freak cuz mchale deserves to be first(sarcasm)

  • lakerfan81

    He is ranked so high because of the large increase in winning % over the previous GM. But the previous GM did not have KG. I could have a large increase in win% over a previous GM if I had KG too. The rankings are kind of stupid because they do not take into account Championships. Simply put SAS GM Buford is the best in the league.

  • lakerfan81

    Dumars is a close 2nd though.

    Fuck Shaq “FATASS” O’Neal, D-FAKE, and LeBron “CAN’T MAKE A SHOT TO SAVE MY LIFE” James. They can all suck my dick. All three of those son of bitches are the most overrated players the NBA has ever seen. It’s all about Kobe “THE GREATEST PLAYER IN NBA HISTORY” Bryant. Fuck the rest of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    After all the KB24 has done, after all the big games, big shots, recods and all – this guy can’t catch a break. I don’t understand why D-FAKE and The Little Prince get a bigger billing than KB. WTF???????

  • kb2481

    i hear some ppl say lebron james is better then kobe or dwade is better then kobe or micheal jordan is not a ball hog compared to kobe

    well lebron got SWEPT in the finals kobe already had won 1 at 22

    dfake suks and he became famous of his “fashion”

    so know jordan he has abt 36000 points in his crear

    kobe has like what clos to 20000 somkething like that
    well when ppl say kobe is a ballhoger he only averaged 23.something in his crear in his carear guess what jordan averaged 30.1 or 31
    something like that plus he averaged 37.1 in 1987 and he had a team back then
    who is the ballhog now

    KOBE DOES NOT HAVE A TEAM!!!!

  • kb2481

    and kobe he is like 29 i think he wont score 35plus in his ceare except if he goes and scores 30 ppg in like 6-7 years

    ya…Lakers VS. Suns

  • 24allup inya

    Im glad that Lakers VS Miami shit is over it was just a sorry atempt by the NBA to hipe up the drama of KOBE VS SHAQ in order to make more ratings.Ever since Shaq was traded to MIAMI the officials have had a personl vendetta against THE KING (KOBE) thats why they dont give him his calls.Thats also why Shaq got a championship ring first, the officials decided the outcome.Before anyone calls me stupid let me tell you that i had already said to my frinds that the NBA and the officials were deciding the outcome of certain games long before the FBI started investigating this so think about that and let me know what u guys all think.Do you agree with me or not???

  • 24allup inya

    TAKE TIME TO READ MY PREVIOUS PARAGRAPH TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK GIVE ME SOME FEEDBACK!!!

    so does any1 know when the NBA gonna release the schedule 4 nxt season?

  • fred0s

    Lakers vs. Phoenix seems to be a great matchup. Hightest scoring team vs. highest scoring individual. Sure the Suns may have the Lakers card, but doesn’t make it any less interesting.

    24allup inya I totally agree with you. I’ve been saying for the past 3 years that the NBA is rigged. Think about it. That fagget ass LeBron and D-Fake entered the league 3 years ago and that is when I started to realize that the refs are rigging games so that bitchass LeBron and that motherfucker D-Fake wouldn’t look overrated. If they didn’t give those two motherfuckers 20 freethrows a game they wouldn’t even average 20 points a game. I honestly believe that the NBA is being run by the mafia and that they dictate who is going to do what. Their main weapons are the refs. Even with all this going on, Kobe is still able to be the best player in the world and the NBA, that is ultimately why Kobe is my favorite player and it’s the main reason why I respect him.

    FINALLY!!!!! NO MORE LAKER/HEAT XMAS GAMES….TIME FOR SOMETHING NEW AND EXCITING….LAKER/SUNS OR WARRIORS/MAVERICKS!!!!!!

  • Rpoc

    Heat and Cavs?! How boring. These two teams don’t even have beef with each other.

    Spurs vs. Suns and Warriors vs. Mavs are the best dramatic head to heads.
