      Dude, nice preview, but seriously, get with Chris before you decide to do any video, okay? That was rough, comparatively speaking, when you consider we’re used to LD2K’s masterpieces.

    wow, Ray Allen was the only Celtic for whom I felt a little bit of respect.
    Never heard of that comment at the 2008 ESPYs.
    Derek´s face tells it all, and I´m sure every Laker player heard that, even though it was 2 years ago, they still remember.

    This is gonna be one of the most entertaining NBA finals ever. Wow, this got me so pumped up for Thursday.. CANT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I guess you dont remember this either:
      .
      “He’s going to be very selfish,” Allen said of Bryant. “And he feels like he needs to show this league and the people in this country that he is better without Shaq. He can win championships without Shaq. So offensively, he’s going to jump out and say, ‘I can average 30 points. I can still carry the load on this team.’
      .
      “I think the point production is not going to be so much what people are going to look at because (Tracy) McGrady did it in Orlando, Allen (Iverson) did it in Philly. Can you win a championship? I think that’s the question. Carrying guys on your back and making everybody better.”
      .
      “If Kobe doesn’t see he needs two and a half good players to be a legitimate playoff contender or win a championship, in about a year or two he’ll be calling out to Jerry Buss that ‘We need some help in here,’ or ‘Trade me,’ ” Allen said. “And we’ll all be saying, ‘I told you so,’ when he says that.”
      .
      and it happened just like that . . .

    Farmar proved in game 6 of the suns series that he is the future pg. It may be surprising because he never is consistently good. Fisher is proving that he still has a good couple years ahead of him. Farmar was hitting tough shots. Shannon has been one of my fav players but he has been non existent lately. I wouldnt sign him for more money, (he want more money). Trade him in a package if needed. He has been struggling. Agree or Disagree lakersnation!

    GO LAKERS! LA 4- Boston-2
    Lakers win in finals

    • ilikebasketball

      agreed.
      brown is just not a smart player.
      but i think farmar may be too inconsistent to be a starting pg.

    WOW that pissed me off what Ray Allen said..

  • seankobe

    I hope that dialogue should be in ring tone to give message to LA and the LAKERS that RAY ALLIEN must pay for that! I’m not from LA I just saw it now and I felt what fish had that night! disrespected! kill the green goblins!

  • trippleocho

    Fisher looked UUUUUUPSET.

      Considering he was drafted by the Lakers, won 4 rings (soon to be 5 rings) with the Lakers, will most likely end his career with the Lakers… through all that, he has built an infrangible relationship with the Lakers. Whatever you say about the Lakers he takes to heart because LA has become home for him, same case for Kobe.
      But this is why Derek is the man he is. He is a hard worker, great leader and a Laker legend. He has faced adversity and troubles throughout his NBA career and to have someone like Ray Allen, from the most hated franchise in the Lakers’ perspectives to come by and just destroy everything that Derek stands for, it isn’t acceptable in any circumstance. I wouldn’t take it and I’m 110% sure Derek wouldn’t take it.
