My name is Jonny, and I will be penning a periodic column here at the Lakers Nation. My goal is to provide a unique viewpoint of the Lakers, but also of the NBA at large as well.
I’ll get into who I chose the title “The Foam Finger” in my next article, but first I will be trotting out the tried and true, and therefore cliched, team and player New Years resolution.
Note: I was going to do a separate note for Sun Yue on Chinese New Years, but then I remembered that he’s not with the team anymore, bummer.
Derek Fisher – I will take less Pull-Up-In-Transition-Jumpers (PUITJ) with the possible exception being if I pull up behind the 3-point line.
Jordan Farmar – I will continue to make smart decisions off the bench, and knock down open 3-pointers.
Shannon Brown – I will start dunking ferociously again (Is it just me, or has he only had like, two really nice dunks since LetShannonDunk.com was launched?).
Sasha Vujacic – I will check to see if my warranty is still valid, and if so, I will ask the manufacturer to send me the missing piece that Ray Allen stole from me in the 2008 NBA Finals
Luke Walton – I will come back and remind the Bench Mob that the Triangle offense really is a beauty when executed right.
Lamar Odom – I will lower the number of “O’dumb” offensive fouls a game I get to one every other game.
Pau Gasol – I will get really pissed off if I’m not seeing the ball enough that a triple double night is a legitimate possibility.
Andrew Bynum – I will vary my offensive moves to include more spins away from the center of the court off the block, and I will also remember that I have a devastating drop step move.
Ron Artest – I will continue to be a most excellent defender, and I will continue to have awesome hairstyles.
Adam Morrison, Josh Powell, D.J. Mbenga – I will continue to reiterate to Phil Jackson that DNP is my favourite band ever, and I would like to collect as many CD’s of theirs as possible.
Kobe Bryant – I AM Bruce Willis.
That’ll be all folks, have a happy New Year, and stay classy Lakers fans.
