Very classy gesture by the Lakers. Considering how things fell apart during free-agency, this is great to see.

    GOD! I MISS TREVOR!!!!!!!!!!
    HE’S A CHAMP ARTEST MIGHT BE A BETTER PLAYER TOUGHER OR WHATEVER, BUT I TAKE ARIZA OVER ARTEST EVERY DAY.

    GO ARIZA!

  • Beck

    yay Trevor! I miss him in L.A. Go Lakers!!

  • Marwan

    Man why the hell are we losing now. This cant be happening. Pau we need you man.

  • drive-for-16th

    Again another game sucked ass and let a lead go by and to those people i am a laker fan but i see problems here. WE WILL NOT WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP THIS YEAR LIKE THIS. PAU GASOL IS NOT AN EXCUSE WE HAVE 12 OTHER GUYS ON THE TEAM. its pissin me off cause we keep letting leads go. The best again today was Bynum who tried his best till the end and artest did good too. shannon was the best of the bench

    K. Bryant – 5-20 , he never showed up to play the nuggets either and again today like wtf happened to his postup game hes missing easy shots and it looks like hes always tired too. fatigued out.
    D. Fisher – 3-13 why the hell does he take those stupid ass shots he pisses me off.
    AND VUJACIC AND FARMAR NEED TO BE TRADED WITH MORRISON ALL GONE, WE NEED TO BRING IN A BETTER POINT GUARD AND SIT FISHER DOWN ON THE BENCH, CAUSE HES GETTING KILLED BY FAST GUARDS. LAMAR ODOM JUST FUKING STANDS AROUND HARDLY BOXES OUT AND DOESN’T TRY MUCH.

  • Marwan

    Its ok next game we will win, if we lose next game then say goodbye to repeat.

  • drive-for-16th

    I DON’T CARE IF IT 10 GAMES IN THE SEASON BUT WE ARE NOT WORTHY OF CALLING OUR SELVES CHAMPIONS. PHIL SAID WE HAVEN’T PLAYED ONE GOOD GAME THIS YEAR. WE ARE TOO SOFT, WE HAVE STUPID ASS WHITE GUYS COMIN OFF THE BENCH WHO CAN’T DO SHIT. I HOPE MITCH DOES SMTN SOON OR ELSE WERE GONNA GET FUKED EARLY CAUSE THIS IS FUKIN UP OUR RECORD AND WE WONT HAVE HOME COURT EITHER.. WE ARE NOW #5 IN THE WEST. I HOPE U GUYS ALL DONT TRY TO DEFEND THE TEAM CAUSE IF UR A CHAMP THERE ARE NO EXCUSES. OTHER TEAMS WANT TO BEAT THE LAKERS AND WE ARE LETTING THEMM BY BEING LIL PUSSIES.

  • Marwan

    I didnt watch the game but I heard that the fans started booing the Lakers. True?

  • drive-for-16th

    i WATCHED THE GAME SCREAMING AT THEM TO DO SMTN EVERYTIME THEY COME UP THEY LAUNCH A THREE OR A STUPID JUMPER. ESPECIALY FARMAR AND VUJACIC. THE CROWD BOOOED THE LAKERS A LOT CAUSE THIS IS SOOOOOOOO EMBARRESING. I DONT SEE A REPEAT. IT DONT MATTER IF WERE 10 GAMES CAUSE IF UR A CHAMP U NEED TO BE READY ON THE FUKING FIRST GAME. HUMILIATING TO BE A LAKER FAN RIGHT NOW. I DONT KNOW WAT THE FUK IS WRONG WITH KOBE HES SUKING LAST 2 GAME 18 FUKING POINTS.

  • http://www.jjceleb.com Megan Fox JJC

    Yes it’s true. Lakers were boo-ed at home. Kobe needs to be ashamed of himself. I have always been a huge Kobe fan, but the past 2 games are just disgusting! What is he doing?! His shot selection has been terrible and he’s not promoting ball movement. He’s making the whole offense go stagnant. Lakers Defense hasn’t been the problem. Lakers has had trouble scoring the past two games.

    • mr.laker19

      Agree 1000%

  • drive-for-16th

    TRADE SASHA, FARMAR , MORRISON , MBENGA FOR A BAG OF CHIPS. AND SIT FISHER DOWN ON THE BENCH.

  • LifeLongLakerFan

    That was very cool

  • Marwan

    Chill down guys, just like us the other favorites which are the Celtics also have 2 home losses and 1 road loss. We need to improve upon our mistakes man we are 14 losses away from matching our record let alone going 72-10.

    So let this go and focus n=on next game.

  • drive-for-16th

    we won’t get 60 wins this year. and fuk the celtics, just cause they lost doesnt mean we have too, we are suppose to be the champs but were playing like a team thats trying to get to the playoffs. and wat is wrong with kobe. and why havent we tried to trade farmar, vujacic and other fags away so we can have some bench production or we can just get lit up by a aaron brooks every night, fisher needs to be on the bench hes too fuking old , and phil pisses me off by not calling timeouts when we were getting schooled with the bench in the forth quarter on the floor.

  • drive-for-16th

    this had nuggets game written all over it same story tight game by the half then they blew the lead open. woow. applause for the team.

  • mr.laker19

    Lets not forget the stinkers we had in the regular season in the shaq and kobe era, we had a few 50 win seasons that should of been 60+. We are built for the playoffs guys, plus we dont have our stabilizer Pau who is our second best player. That being said Kobe is looking worse than i have EVER seen him period. Period. Even the games where he scored big i felt like he looked unfocused, unprepared, and going through the motions. He has to get his head on straight or we could have seen the last of the Mamba and the beginning of earth worm jim

  • drive-for-16th

    damn right man

  • PurpsNGold

    Isnt cool how Ariza carried his baby son while receiving the Championship Ring.. It shows a lot about his character.. Unselfishness.. So cool Man..

    Btw.. We aint gonna win it all, but we are gonna take the Trophy once again this year.. We havent fully gotten used to Artest and He still looks lost.. He needs to be the beast that he used and just kill people in the post..

    • http://LakersNation Marwan

      Problem is not that we are lost, its that Pau isnt there.

      You saw when KG wasnt there, Celtics had a 2nd round exit.

      Bottom line is, we need Pau before Kobe tires himself out and has nothing for playoffs.

  • inverse

    Stop trippin peeps. Wise words from Inverse!

  • Robert

    This was just Ariza’s ‘comeback win’ after having been dogged by the Lakers (for signing Artest instead of him). Actually, I like having Artest, and he’ll work out fine, but this was “Ariza’s Day” – his ring, how he helped us win a Championship, etc. We won’t repeat this again, just like we won’t repeat a Thuggets loss.
    Notice how Ariza copped a steal from Kobe, and messed up his shooting tonight. Kobe is playing injured, that’s all … not just a little pinky, but his groin. You need the friggin’ groin to shoot. You need your legs in tip top shape to make jump shots. So it’s clear that he isn’t playing 100%.
    But not to worry, Kobe will be back. Pau will be back. All will be set straight.
    Ariza did help us (Lakers) win a championship, so let’s let this one go. We can now get past that, and kick some a$$ (esp. when Pau returns).

  • Josh in D 310

    Its only a loss and we can take this one and just move on. Its not the end of the world. I agree that Farmar and Vujabrick need to step it up or get bounced out of here bcuz I see a consistent pattern of crappy, pussy cat effort from them. When Pau returns all will be well. We weren’t champs until Pau became a Laker so we won’t play like champs till Pau comeback…Go Lakers keep the faith Laker Fanatics!

    • http://LakersNation Marwan

      THANK YOU!

      Ive been trying to say that but no one was listening. Its only one loss, so what.We got 72 more games to work it out and Pau is coming back too.

      Besides, Kobe was injured in this game too and Ron Ron took over which is what he is supposed to do. Good to see he is adjusting well.

      Lets this game go, focus on the next game.

  • Short Dog

    BOOO for ariza.

  • lakerman1

    To many doubters on this blog today. Sure it was two sad losses but nothing the Lakers cannot bounce back from. The lakers have done this in the past { yes even with Horry/Fish/Shaq/Kobe etc ) Los Angeles is full of bandwagon crybabies probably more so then any other team fan base. I myself do not base the whole season on a couple of early losses. If some of you people really stayed informed you would know that Kobe has been playing through multiple injuries which now includes his Groin. Just save all of the whining for the playoffs people its too early for the incessant complaining. Remember its a 82 game season not 10.

  • lakerman1

    Also they are @ 700% so even if they continued with this pace they would still end up around 58/82 which i believe could qualify them for the #1 seed in the west. Everything will work itself out in the end so i am not worried. The Purple&Gold will prevail.

  • http://57.amklac kobe,bi-curious?

    M.V.P. MY ASS.nice leadership qualities…

    • kobe-wan kenobi

      he got us 4 rings
      so just stfu
      you idiot

    • http://LakersNation Marwan

      Kobe bi curious, You are a bandwagon fan man, this is why people say LA has so much of them, you are not a fan of any kind.

      -He brought to us 4 rings
      -Olympic Gold Medal for USA
      -Broke and dislocated joints and still played
      -Built up Lakers’ reputation as a solid contender and the best franchise ever

      I bet when he is performing and putting up 40+ points you are all over him.

  • babak

    marwan you know its only november and ur saying if lakers lose again then forget repeat? thats about the dumbest thing i ever heard..relax…throwing the towel in again? thats insane yo.

    • http://LakersNation Marwan

      I was saying that if they keep this up, if they lose like this then no repeat, not now, I still have faith in my team.

      Plus when I said ‘if we lose next game’, the next game is at home against Pistons, and they arent really a contender.

      But I have confidence that Lakers will go to the finals and win it all, I dont care if they have to play 4 rounds of game 7s to win it.

  • the ape

    was it my imagination or did lamar actually wipe a tear with his sleeve when he pumped a fist to his heart

    • http://LakersNation Marwan

      Your imagination, he was wiping his nose.

      But it wouldnt be wrong for anyone from that team to cry, I mean they were very close with Ariza and its hard to see someone go even if you see them 4 times throughout the year.
