And so the talking already begins…

O.C. Register: “We’re going (there) to win both games,” Martin said. “Not just going (there) to split. … Ain’t no stealing nothing. We’re going to play to win. No matter if they have days off or not, we’re going win.”

    Lakers in 5…denver thuggets r overrated and r punks…they gonna try 2 outscore us which is epic fail 4 them…i wil,l love watching bynum dominate nene and kobe beasting dante jones scrub azz….this is ez series

  • xfellerx

    ya right. hmmm… similar to last year… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdtdPjCuqVU

  • BigCHEESE

    so, they win two total road games against much lesser teams and now they think they’re going to win the first two against the best home team in the west?

    LMAO

  • BigCHEESE

    BTW – Kobe’s gonna have a field day against Dahntay Jones and JR after facing two of the best wing defenders in the league.

  • 2Anush4

    wow even denver is saying were taking days off……….hope the lakers players read this

  • http://lakersnation chris

    the most games they could beat us is 1 like utah did lakers in 5!!! and i think its going to be lakers magic because LBJ is going to have problems with superman NO.2 in there!

  • Laker8Nate24

    just 4 the record…the nuggets usually stick anthony carter on kobe when dantay jones gets n foul trouble or w/e…denvers defense makes the suns look like old school pistons…kenyon martin will try 2 punk som1 out, and d-fish gonna have 2 put a scola on his azz

  • BigCHEESE

    LOL @ anthony carter trying to guard kb!

  • JustAnotherLakerFan

    THIS is exactly what we need from Kenyon Martin – talk sh!t (as I expected).

    Now the Black Mamba will come out stingin’ – and if the same team who came out last night comes out in the next 4 games of the Western Conference final – it’s SWEEPING time.

    Hahahahahahaha! Just like last season – except they were the first team the Lakers faced in the playoffs.

    I wonder who’s gonna be their “Kobe Stopper” – mos def not Anthony Carter, they must be trippin!

  • Kenyone Martin

    Hey I tried to guard kb last year and I held him to 49 pts in game 2! Expect more defensive ownage like that this year. I’ve already held david west to 18 PPG and Dirk nowitzki to 34 PPG this year in the PO’s!

    RAWR!!!!

  • http://www.myspace.com/on3s3qu3nc3 123kid

    wow a lot of talk from someone who can barely stay on the court due to sissy injuries. actually get some credit of beating worthy teams before talkin shyt!

  • LakersFirst

    There is only two words to describe Kenyon Martin … Mama’s Boy

    And what’s with the ultra gay lips tattoo on his neck?

  • gugy

    Martin is a thug, Mark Cuban was right.
    I love this, I hope they keep talking trash, the more they do, the better for us.
    As far as remember we wiped those motherfu-ckers last season. I hope it happen again.

  • WifelovesLuke

    The matchups just don’t fall in favor of Denver. Who can guard Kobe, Pau and LO? No one. Which Laker can handle Anthony? Ariza. Who’s got Nene? Gasol or Bynum. Who’s got Chauncy? D Fish or Brown. Martin? Please!

    Denver is a high tempo team just like the Lakers. If that’s the game they choose to play, they lose. If they want to grind it out in a half court set, they are now playing out of character and again the Lakers are favored. On top of that, they have not been challenged in these playoffs. That changes Tuesday night!

    Finally, the Lakers have beaten the Nuggets 10 out of the last 11 times. Chauncy or no Chauncy, that sounds like domination to me!

  • KB24ALLDAY

    Can someone tell K-Mart that he is worth nothing just the store… Dude is horrible. Even Melo, who has the right to talk ish, doesn’t. What’s he thinking? Is he gonna stutter he way to guarding Pau? Pure hilarity

  • yellowepurplefever

    This guy is a JOKE. Overmasking his Thuggish in the NBA? It only scared Cuban, not really.
    Someone mentioned early “Denver Thuggets” the new “Jailblazzer”
    Lakers in 5 if we play defense like last Sunday.
    Go Lakers!!

  • FT

    can we please start shutting ppl up, seems like every single person that has anything to do with the playoffs is talking ish about the lakers, its pretty much clear that the whole TNT crew roots for us to lose now, and probably the same for the ESPN/ABC guys (except for MAGIC), phil needs to get this team to feel like its them agaisnt the world so they can shut everyone up, starting with Denver!

  • LakersFirst

    I would so do Kenyon Martin I love his gay lips…

  • kjeezyrad

    martin full of shyt, got beat when he was a netin 2002 finals, and now as a denver chicken nugget, bring on the dipping sauce!!!

    that’s what i was thinking. it’s not like this guy is a great player or anything. he needs to chill because he’s putting his team in jeopardy.

    They beat a injured team in N.O and Dallas and now all of a sudden they’re tough? LMAO

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=684346052 Zoom Kobe II

    Kenyon Martin’s mom,

    You’re son is a thug. He is also retarded and can’t speak English worth a damn.

    Sincerely,

    Zoome Kobe II

  • T-Dub

    I’m glad they’re talkin SH-IT!. I want to see if these other Lakers man up or punk out.

  • WifelovesLuke

    What everyone seems to forget is the defense that LA plays. Look for another solid series from Ariza. Brown will get more minutes on Chauncy. Bynum will be key if he can play against Denver like he did in game 7 of Houston series. And finally, Kobe averages 31 ppg against this “solid” defensive minded Denver team. Denver is defensinve minded? rrrrriiiiiigggghhhhttttt!

    Talk is Cheap. You already picked the lakers to not win a championship. Yes talk is cheap.

    Kenyon “K-Mart” Martin is the biggest douchebag on the Nuggets. What happened to Mavs in game 4 wont be happening to the Lakers. That no call foul was the biggest crock of sh.t in NBA history. They are giving Melo all this shine just because he made a wide open uncontested 3? haha nuggets are dreaming if they think they can steal 1 from us.

  • kjeezyrad

    KENYONE MARTIN LISTEN YOU DUMB FCUK , YOU WERE WASHED UP IN 2002 WHEN KOBE AND SHAQ WIPED THIER ASSES WITH YOU IN THE FINALS. MAMA ALL WAYS SAY WHILE YOU TALKING SHIT , THE OTHER MAN GOING TO PUNCH YOUR ASS IN THE MOTUH BIATCH!!!!

  • Anthony

    It’s funny that the Nuggets should be talking so boldly. They better show up and keep the talking to themselves or they’re going to get shelved — and fast.

  • T-Dub

    [Comment ID #71876 Will Be Quoted Here]

    So would I. I would swallow him in a minute … LITERALLY

  • Stephen

    Dude i never thought I would agree with Mark Cuban… lol

  • kevin 0.

    LETS GET THIS PARTY STARTED I FEEL LIKE LAKERS WILL WIN THE 1ST 2 AT HOME, AND ONE OF THOSE IS GONNA BE CLOSE THAN DENVER WILL KEEP TALKIN SHYT CUZ THEY ALMOST WON ONE AT STAPLES THEN IN GAME 3 JR AND CHAUNCEY WILL PUT SOME 3′S ON US AND WE’LL LOSE AFTER THAT LAKERS WILL WIN GAME 4 WITH THE HEARTBREAKER AND IN GAME 5 THEY WILL STAY CLOSE BUT IN THE 3RD QUARTER OUR OFFENSE WILL EXPLODE AN IT WILL BE A BLOWOUT, THEN THE CAVS WILL BEAT THE MAGIC IN 6 EVEN THO THEY WILLL LOSE AT HOME IN GAME 2 OR 1, AND THEN THE LAKERS WILL WIN GAME 1 IN THE FINALS AND LOSE GAME 2 THEN WIN 3 STRAIGHT AT HOME COMPLETELY DOMINATIN BRON BRON JAMES (CLOSE GAMES BUT LAKERS ALWAYS LEADIN) AND LAKERS FINALLY WORLD CHAMPS OF 09 4-1 AGAINST CAVS…

    IT ALL COMES DOWN TO GAME 1 OR MAYBE 2 IN THE FINALS IF WE WIN IT WE WIN IT ALL (REMEMBER WAT HAPPEN LAST YEAR)

  • LongDongMamba

    Martin is a stupid mother-fu-cker.
    Cuban is actually right about him, but an idiot for attacking his mom.
    Anyway, He has been distracted by this cr@p, so it is all good for the Lakers. I do hope tomorrow we put a dagger on their hearts and start this series with determination and will to win.
    I pray for no more meltdown from the Lakers squad.

    The only team that can beat the lakers is the Lakers itself.

    Lakers in 6!

  • sketch

    We all know that he’s mentally not stable, but I didn’t realize that he was mentally challenged as well! Lakers in 5!

    Go Lakers!

  • AL the Laker Fan you should meet.

    Ahhhhh Kenyon Martin. Yet another NBA player in the league who says stufff that doesn’t quite make sense. The mainstream media are playing right into our hands. I love the fact that the Lakers are complete underdogs for the rest of the playoffs Lakers seem to always play better in that role. I predict our entire team will play like lightning a bottle these two games at home. I expect Shannon Brown and believe it or not D-Fish to have a good series along with Big AB and my man Odom. Kobe droppin 30ppg is normal output for him.

    I admire what you have done here. It is good to see you verbalize from the heart and your clarity on this essential subject can be easily noticed. Wonderful post and will look forward to your incoming update.
