    funny how they use kobe and pau to sell tickets… PAU GA$OL!!!

  • SILO

    This is so exciting for us. No trade or sign the Lakers have done have rattled the NBA this bad in a long time. We all have high expectations right now for this team. Lets see what they can do.

  • lakers4lyfe

    Heisley also said former Lakers executive Jerry West, who left the Grizzlies last season, was not involved in the deal. There’s some speculation around the NBA that West pushed the Grizzlies to help the Lakers as Kevin McHale did in the Kevin Garnett trade to Boston, helping his former team.-Chicago Tribune

  • lakerz

    in the bottom it says 7:30 pacific, it should say eastern.

  • lakerzzz

    TIPOFF IS ACTUALLY 4:30, IT SAID 7:30 PACIFIC WHICH IS WRONG, AND YOU COULD LISTEN TO THE GAME LIVE ON AM 570 Radio.

  • lakersfan17

    That looks nice

  • T-Dub

    You can tell by the reaction from around the league, that those A$$HOLES really didn’t want Kobe or the Lakers back on top! They really wanted the Lakers to stay down for a decade. ANYBODY BUT THE LAKERS!!!!! EAT SHII-AAAA-IITTTT BIIIAAACHES!!!!

  • Berger

    LD2k PLEASE make a pic of the starting five, I really want it as the background on my phone. Thanx brotha

  • DoodLeS24

  • http://letsgolakers.com Mr.81

    Sick!

    Yeah LD2k that’d be tight…guys, do you think that’s photoshopped or real?

  • LA fan in Manila

    It’s such a shame their using their oponent’s market figure to sell tickets. Anyway, it’s good marketing strategy though. Anybody would love to see Kobe and Pau work together on a live game. Send the lob to Pau for the slam, Kobe.

  • DCLAKER

    FEAR HAS SET IN ON THE NBA,EVEN Paul Pierce came out and said “I know LA is BANANAS(NOT EXACTLY THAT WORD)right now”,YOU F!@#$%%G RIGHT THEY ARE! I still say before we start talking LA vs. Boston in the Finals,let’s take it game for game,ya’know,let Pau get right inside of the trianlge first then LAKERS WILL TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!!!!

  • WSLaker

    pic is definitely photoshopped, the lighting doesn’t match up.

  • drake hunter

    In Memphis upon joining the Grizzlies, Javaris Crittenton said of the trade: “It is a blessing to be here. It’s a better opportunity for me.”

    Makes one wonder why so many Laker fans are bummed at losing a player that never played and didn’t even want to be here!

  • RDLAKB24

    IM GONNA BE THERE BABY!!!!

    I don’t think West had a hand in this. I give credit where credit is due – to the Lakers FO.

    I think people are a little bummed about losing Java, because he is has a lot of potential to be a really great player for years to come.

    I wouldn’t go so far as to say that he didn’t want to be a Laker. Unfortunately for Java, Farmar improved in a big time way, which hurt Java’s playing time. However, Java is going to get way more playing time in Memphis, which is great for him and his career. I think he his appreciative of this opportunity to finally play.

  • Ko-Pau19

    24 more hours Lakers fans! 24 moore hourrrrss!!! Goooooooooo Lakers!

  • Lamar4Mvp

    17 hours 45 minutes to go!!! Go lakers!!

  • jrich

  • STEVE

    This is funny how you guys think Pau Gasol is going to take you to the promise land. Lakers will be beat by either the Suns,Spurs or Mavs. Maybe even the Jazz. Pau Gasol sucks.

  • lakers4lyfe

    Don’t forget about Bynum, when he comes back (teams in the league were already having trouble with him – ask Phoenix, New Orleans, Golden St., Utah, etc, etc.).

    Oh wait, don’t forget that the rest of the Lakers and how deep of a bench they are (the deepest team in the league on paper).

    So, I ask you, when teams play the Lakers, who are they going to double? Gasol? They can’t double him because that may leave an open Kobe or an open Bynum (or even an open Fisher for the jump shot)? Do you think the other teams will double Kobe? That would leave an open Gasol or Bynum for the dunk? Hmmm? Maybe they’ll double Bynum when he gets the ball, but then again that would leave an open Kobe or Gasol. That won’t work. Maybe teams will be forced to play the Lakers one on one. Kobe one on one??? Is that even possible to defend?

    Face it little boy, the Lakers are going to be a tougher team to play now (and at full strength, the Lakers were already tough). Why do you think every GM in the league is pissed at this trade.

  • mplakers

    hey STEVE who are you? are you a suns fan? i’d just like to ask you how do you maintain your patience with a team that has never won a championship. it’s good to empathize with a loser’s perspective once and again just to stay humble.

    teams and fans who are full of themselves just because they make it to the the playoffs and have never tasted the the sweetness of true championship victory, might as well be called THE LA CLIPPERS. that’s about as far as they’ve gotten right?

    the lakers don’t play that.

    YOU OVBIOUSLY DONT KNOW THAT WE (THE LAKERS) PRETY MUCH OWN THE WEST NOW SPECIALY WHEN BYNUM GETS BACK YOU’LL SEE!!!

  • e

  • T-Dub

    Steve….go change your panties. Your not the only person that sh*tted himself when he heard about the heist. The whole League did!

  • kilacrosova

    LMAO! The Nets are a disgrace. I really hope Pau understands the triangle and gets a lot of pt tonight. Ahh man can’t wait for this game. Go LAKERS!!!

    And oh yea, can we please kick out “Steve” for being such a dush and he’s evidently not a Laker fan. His ignorance is a joke!
