So you would've loved Kareem.
This, and the reason I say Lakers. Also, his best seasons statistically were with the Lakers. However, if he makes the HOF, it's definitely for international play, so I don't know how that works,...
Lady, I've been a fan of this team for almost 35 years, through thick and thin, and have defended Kobe when he deserved to be defended. So suck it. People like you who think being a fan means...
He's among the leaders in AS voting for the Western Confence. If he gets selected to start, that will only add to the embarrassment.
Four more years, unfortunately. Fans who praised this signing really wouldn't recognize a good player if they saw one (unless they praised it as future trade bait, I suppose). Every single year...
Not "ruining" his legacy. Tarnishing it. A year or two of people watching you suck eggs will do that.
About him as a player, I would go there, but given the way the waiver process goes, I don't think the Lakers are in play. Don't even know if they're interested, actually.
I will say this. This is definitely not booing material, because he's not ruining their season. They'll suck with him or without him. He is tarnishing his legacy, though.
That shouldn't and...
Nope. Does that make him a top player? Does the NBA grade on a curve now?
I thought he would do that. I did not believe, like many fans, that he would just pick up where he left off after two devastating injuries, but I did think that he would continue to modify his game,...
He can't be the main guy on a contender anymore. That's for sure. Not sure, but MAYBE he could still be an effective role player on a contender. Don't know if he'd want that, though.
Why? They're not playing for anything. He's playing as awful as any of them. He shouldn't have to play any more minutes than he normally would. They're not going anywhere whether he plays more or...
Not many would shoot without conscience the way he has. Seriously, at 37% shooting, those points are meaningless. It's the perfect example of hollow stats. 4.9 assists to 3.5 turnovers is 4th...
At this point, in my opinion, it's pretty accurate, and maybe even a little flattering.
The only kind of good news that can happen this season is other teams calling to express interest in trading for Laker players. This is good. Fire sale. Everybody is available.
The Lakers lack everything.
Good example of having a good point of view and taking it too far. Yes, the Lakers are too fixated on hitting a homerun while passing up opportunities to build a team with smaller moves. However,...
This is true, because all those games from early in his career when he played a few minutes as a sub count the same as if he'd played starter's minutes.
Every single survey I've seen says otherwise.
Who consults Wikipedia for their basketball info, let alone a heavily-flagged Wikipedia page? Love and Bosh can hit threes. That does not make them stretch 4s. Ditto Aldridge. Really, anybody who...
In other words, you flat out wouldn't trade him. The Rockets had to GIVE UP a 1st to get rid of Lin. You think he's suddenly played up his value to where somebody would give up a 1st to get him???
Lin is not worth delaying a rebuild if there is an opportunity to get a decent pick for him in the mid to high 2nd round.
Anybody still buying the myth that this is a Stretch 4 league and that every team needs one to win?
Of the top 12 teams in the NBA, by record, nine of them start or play the bulk of their minutes...
Because it's a chitty rule and most fans don't want it and the only (lame) reason it still exists is because the Players' Union's greed.
