  • Kid Kaos 310

    B Roy is hurt, they need to replace him with D-Williams

    • bostonSUCKS88

      deron is already on the team

  • 151rummer

    Bynum snubbed? i dont know about that….hes been pretty inconsistent. Hes a beast when hes focused, but Pau deserves it more rite now!

  • jellojigz

    Pau barely played this season. Kaman = snubbed, not Bynum. That’s the truth.

  • papa

    wow kaman got SNUBBED!
    pau’s great but he hasnt played enough this season

    • Marwan Marzina

      Kaman snubbed? Ok he played all season, but the dude had his Clippers blown out to the Nets when they didnt have Lee and Harris. How is that for an exclamation point to the All Star rejection.

  • 242LakerFan

    What’s the minimum number of games you have to play to qualify for an All-Star bid? I mean, pardon my colossal ignorance, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere!! It’s so frustrating!!!
    (Idiots)

    Enhorabuena, Pau. Háganos orgullosos!

    • BooBoo37

      Why does he even have to play? dumb fans almost voted T.MAC in without playing! A.I got in and isnt even having a all-star season????? Gasol congrats! You deserved it!

  • bostonSUCKS88

    Pau deserves it

  • 242LakerFan

    As for Bynum, if he had played the entire season the way he’s played in the last couple of weeks, well…
    A little bit of too little, too late IMO.

  • mr.laker19

    Pau deserved it, he cant help that he is injured, and Kaman team sucks. If pau and kaman switched we would be in big trouble. There is NO WAY a first place team in the west only deserves 1 all star, remember when the pistons had four on one roster? That being said Kaman deserves it more than Bynum as an alternate. Bynum dominates bad teams and vanishes in big games.

    • LakersBabe

      Exactly! More to the point. He beats up little guys and gets knocked around by the big dogs. Time to man up Bynum!

  • Matt from Dallas

    if pau drops out i wonder if Bynum will get in? if so i think he should do that so they both get a all-star bid on thier resume.

    • lakeb

      why on earth would pau drop out? pau deserved it, lakers are clearly 10 times better with him in the line up. bynum doesnt deserve an all star bid this year, the coaches think so as well

  • 007

    i was just curious but is there another incentive to being in the all-star game rather than pride? i mean, in the NFL they get paid (whoever wins gets more money). is it like that in the NBA?

    p.s. i think pau was voted in to give the media another reason to hate on kobe bryant and say he has too much talent around him to be mvp. because let’s face it, pau has missed a ton of games and isn’t particularly as great as he was last year when he won the all-star bid. nice job pau nonetheless!

    • LakersBabe

      It depends on the wording in their contracts. Players get all kind of incentives. Bonuses for games played, for leading the league in scoring, rebounds, etc.

      If the league went to a more incentive driven and non guaranteed contract base, the level of play would go up. No doubt!

  • 242LakerFan

    Why is Missesalot wasting her time on this Laker fansite with her snively little comments. Doesn’t she have better things to do, like cooking and cleaning for Misteralot? Changing the Littlealots’ diapers? Something constructive?

  • islandergirl

    And they call “my man” “Gasoft”. – I don’t think so!

    Way to go PAU!!!!!!!!

    LAKERS ALL THE WAY!!!!
