  • GrogDaCaveman

    Grog just neanderthal, not understand much… but Grog wonder, why great homosapien coach Doc Rivers not bring whole team? Grog think coach very silly to not have starting 5 ready! Even dumb neanderthals knows you need to be ready for the finals.

    Big homosapien Perkins hurt? Wah wah, big deal! Grogs leg eatin by large kitty, saber tooth kitty! Grog no whine! STFU wussy homosapian Celtics!

    Great show as usual guys!!!

    It seems like your accepting feedback, so I’ll offer mine….

    PLEASE don’t turn this show into you reading the “hate mail” posted on an internet message board.

    It can turn into people flooding the board with foolish comments just so you can read them on air and get a “reaction”.

    I for one don’t want to hear asinine comments by people who are simply looking for attention all in the name of trying to get a rise from each other.

    So please don’t waste a lot of time during this 3-peat run responding to stupid comments.

    It might be hard, but try to focus on Lakers basketball and leave the internet battles to the kids.

    Great professionally sounding podcast guys. Don’t let people bring this good thing down…

  • DW

    That was one of the funniest podcasts by far. I love how you guys say you wont talk about the lebron thing and then spend 20 minutes going at it again. i just remembered why i listen to you guys your polar opposites but your love for the lakers makes it all worth while.
    Keep reppin the lakeshow you guys

  • kiantech

    LOL G-Small LOL…I dont wanna write a long comment…but when you take 1+1 what do you get? I know your answer isnt 2….that would be logical

  • thedropper (aka JD)

    Hey guys, long time listener and huge fan of anything and everything Lakeshow related. Love your podcast. Just thought I would weigh in on your argument over LeDecision. I think you guys are kinda talking past each other here. D Bricks I know what you are getting at, you are speaking to the emotion of it and the fact that it is classless for LeBron to announce that he wasn’t coming back to Cleveland. I think you were trying to say that he should have let Cleveland, the fans and the organization, know at the very least he wasn’t going to come back. Then he could have gone on and done LeDecision, it still would have sucked for Cleveland fans but it would have been a bit more classy.

    Now G Smalls, I also see your point, I believe you aren’t talking about the emotion of it. You are trying to say that if we are going to consider basketball a business and remove the emotion from it, then it is easier to see why Lebron did what he did with LeDecision. Of course you are right, he has a right to do whatever he wants, it is his career. He just could have gone about it with more class. I think that is what D Bricks was trying to get you to admit. No one should doubt your hater credentials when it comes to LeBron, you just didn’t want to go as far as to call him classless.

    I personally think it was classless but I can see how someone would view it strictly from the business angle and remove the emotions. The issue is that most humans are emotional, so that’s probably why you got so many reactions.

    Keep up the good work and remember at the end of the day, we are all fans of the greatest franchise that has ever existed in professional sports, period!
    Peace out,
    the dropper

    A healthy, engaged Bynum means there isn’t a team in the league able to effectively match up with L.A.’s three-headed frontcourt monster of Bynum, Pau Gasol, and Lamar Odom.

    • 242LakerFan

      Interesting comment (if a complete non sequitur) but why would you jack my handle to make it?

  • 242LakerFan

    Most people look at Walton and are immediately turned off by his lack of quickness and his non-existent leaping ability

    • 242LakerFan

    The LA Times headline said: “Sasha Vujacic gets tennis lessons from Maria Sharapova,” but the article didn’t say he got tennis lessons. He trained/worked out at acclaimed IMG Academy in Bradenton.

    http://nba.fanhouse.com/2010/08/23/sasha-vujacic-looking-toward-lakers-3-peat-and-maria-sharapova/

    It was Sharapova who convinced Vujacic to come to Florida last week to train for the first time at the acclaimed IMG Academy in Bradenton, where she has trained most of her athletic life.

    She is preparing for the U.S. Open that begins later this month in New York. And while she was on the tennis court under the steaming midday sun, he was in the gymnasium 50 feet away, sweating through his own shirt, too. They were doing completely different workouts, on different courts, but they were pushing each other.

    She was slamming shots across the net to two men, who were slamming them right back. He was working under the guidance of an IMG trainer, along with his own Serbian basketball coach. She finished before he did, then came into the gym and watched him finish. They left together.

    “We’re both serious about what we do,” Vujacic said after he finished. “I played a little (tennis) earlier this summer, but not now. She has to focus on a tournament. I have to start getting ready for my season.”

    SOMEONE CAME UP TO ME AND SAID “MIAMI GOING 76-6 THIS SEASON”…AFTER GETTIN UP OFF THE FLOOR ( I FELL BECAUSE OF LAUGHTER) I SIMPLY SAID, I’M HOLDING U TO THAT.

    GREAT PODCAST GUYS, AS FOR THE KOBE STATEMENT…HE SAID WHAT HE WAS SUPPOSE TO SAY, & UNLIKE LEBRON WHO TWEETED “Don’t think for one min that I haven’t been taking mental notes of everyone taking shots at me this summer. And I mean everyone! 7:45 PM Aug 10th via UberTwitter HE HAS NO IDEA HOW TO LET THAT FUEL HIM…KOBE IS ABOUT TO TAKE VOLTRON DOWN. RON ARTEST ON THE OTHER HAND, SAID EXACTLY WHAT WE ALL WANTED TO SAY TO DOC IF WE WERE IN FRONT OF HIM. I DO BELIEVE THAT IT WILL BE THE 3RD GO AROUND FOR THIS LAKER TEAM WITH BOSTON & WITH EVERYONE HEALTHY…WE WIN! TELL SASHA HE BETTER GET IT TOGETHER FOR HIS NEXT TEAM, CAUSE UNLESS HE TRYING TO IMPROVE HIS FOOTWORK, IF HE HURTS ANOTHER ANKLE..HE GONE AT TRADE DEADLINE.
