Why were the Lakers rejoicing after beating the Celtics? It was a great game, very competitive and I think their aggressiveness matched the Celtics toughness.

Well, you have obviously no idea what you're talking about if you think that the Lakers have played the best basketball in the NBA for the past 4 years. They haven't even clearly been playing the best basketball this year. They certainly didn't last year and the two years before that they weren't even close. So what exactly in the hell are you talking about?

Also they went to the Finals last year, that's a pretty memorable playoff performance I think. I'm sure disappointing for Laker fans but memorable none the less......very pointless thread.

Really? As pointless as the tread "gasoft?" If people make treads trying to praise the Lakers, there should be an alternative because that team is as weak as sugarcane stem.

Regardless of that...what are you talking about Lakers having great seasons for last 4 years? They were pathetic for 3-4 years before last year. So counting last year (after Gasol trade) and half of this season..thats 1 season.

Dude whats your memory of the playoffs? That is if your old enough to remember when Portland made the playoffs. You guys havent done anything since Rasheed and Pippen. YOu guys are very likely to miss the playoffs again this year.

They were excited just like every team is when they win a close nail biter game. Not to mention it was a playoff atmosphere there and the teams really dont like eachother. We have an opportunity to do something really special this year and that is getting back to the finals again and hopefully pulling it out this year.

When was the last time the Blazers went to the the finals? Get off the hatorade and just enjoy the season.....even if in order to do so you have to start watching the Lakers instead!!!

They shouldn't have celebrated like that? They went into the Garden (where they were 0-4 at last season) and won an OT thriller without Bynum during a nationally televised game that had a playoff atmosphere from the crowds to the T's...that was just one game, but it was a big game. It was also against the only team ahead of them percentage-wise in the standings. The game was big on a few different levels.

I didn't think they were celebrating anymore than any other team would after winning a rivalry game. And I don't know what you're talking about in terms of regular season the passed 4 years, they hadn't been much more impressive than many other teams in the passed 4 years.

I'm 98% sure you have no idea what you're talking about, but thet's just my opinion.

The NBA has been blessed by the Lakers regular season showcase the last 4 years, however they've not done anything in postseason that is memorable. I was very dissapointed that they were rejoicing as if they have won the championship after beating the Celtics lastnight. The Lakers are playing the best basketball in the Nba right now just like they have done the past 4 seasons but they have not done a thing in the post-season and in big games Kobe fades faster than a colored dress soaked in bleach. Can the Lakers win it all this year? NO, and the reason I am saying that is because that team only get hyped up in regular season games, and you're not gonna beat the Spurs by looking down on them.

:confused::confused::confused:

Not done a thing? They made the finals. Didn't you watch the Lakers play Nuggs, Jazz, Spurs last season?

Why were you disappointed at their celebration? They beat their rivals (who are arguably the best team in the East) for the second time this season. The Lakers Celtics rivalry is the biggest, most heated and longest lasting in Basketball history. If you were a Laker fan you would realise how much winning those two games meant.

First of all, this guy is a known Laker hater. They havent been good for the past 4 years, besides last year they've been average at best. Kobe fades in big games? How about those 3's he hit last night? How about the game against the Cavs? How about him single handily shutting down Dwayne Wade? The Celtics are a VERY good defensive ball club and Kobe had a hard time in the finals with them, thats it though. I wouldnt say he fades. The Spurs are going to be tough, but the Lakers handled them last year in the playoffs (granted Manu was injured) and beat them pretty easily earlier this year. The Lakers were rejoicing because they beat the "best" team in basketball last night without their starting center. When Bynum gets back itll make things much easier. With Bynum the Lakers are clearly the best team in the NBA.

Wow I guess beating 3 teams that won over 50 games (sweeping one of them) on the way to the Finals is nothing memorable huh? SMH


Also you're downing the Lakers for celebrating last night so I guess you must've missed the Celtics floor celebration after they beat the lowly PHILADELPHIA 76'erS by 1point the other night right? Oh my bad, that was different.....

whats wrong with getting excited over a win? if anything it was a physiological victory, and if the Lakers and Celtics tie with the best record in the NBA the Lakers will get home court, that proved to be the difference last year for the Celtics.

But im with you I dont think they make it pass the Spurs this year. So let them celebrate their last victory vs Boston this year.

u know, this brings up a great question: how much does physcology really play into the minds of professionals?

was it that important they win in Boston just so they feel like they can actually do it?

it is wat it is. a big game, but thats it 1 big game. celebration was a bit much for winning a regular season game.

i think the lakers are very mentally weak. it was proven yesterday. they showed physical toughness, but Kobe carried them when it got really tough and the rest coward away. i think physcology plays big time into the lakers' minds and thats why it is so big for them.

for the Celtics, it was a bigger than usual game, but still just one game. and if the Celtics start losing again, then they will also show mentall weakness.

The fact that you believe that they have been "regular season heroes" for the past four years which include the Smush and Kwame years automatically invalidates any points (borderline trolling) you're trying to make. It's a lot easier for you to attempt to make a regular season accusation if you have more years to go on, but it doesn't make sense if they have only been doing it for half of last season and this current half, does it?

It's not even as if they beat Boston in the regular season last season then lost in the finals they did not even do that. Now this season they have won both matchups, one without their starting center. If I were the Lakers I would be happy because it will remove the conception that they are no longer capable of winning it all because Bynum went down. It was a win to be happy about, why do you care if they seemed a bit more happy than usual, did they SAY it was the most important thing or biggest win? I don't think so.

Lakers wining both games this season and being able to play tough is a good way of infering tht fear in Bostons minds.

Celts didn't need the home court last year did they? why would they need it this year. Everything will be the same - "Kareem" Bynum will not get back.

Lakers are sky high after the fill in for Bynum routine. Soon enough the players who are getting more time will get exposed, the other players on the team will weary of the Kobe show, and the Lakers will win 62 or less games. Celts will win about 64.

Finals should feature the Celts and the Lakers, assuming the officials are decent , we'll get the same outcome as last year Pierce will swallow Kobe, and Allen who is much healthier this year will bomb from outside and KG will dominate inside, and the Series will be over in 6. Wham Bam

Saying they have done nothing in the past 4 years is like saying the NE patriots have done nothing in the last few years. That is a horrible statement, The Lakers are the leagues best team now and were doing sum damage back in 2004 til now. NOT EVERY YEAR can one team always do GREAT. How r u upset that a team is cheering after beating the defending champs at home which is ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULTY OF THINGS 2 DO. throughout an 82 game season that is probably the biggest thing they could have done. Just beating Boston in LA does not mean anything if they cannot do it anywhere else. They have provd the world now that they can take it all the way this year that this year they are the number one team. LAST YEAR THEY WERE NOT, BOSTON broke a season record because how dirty they played. Kobe doesnt fade in big games, hes jus alone. By himself u cant do it all, not even jordan did it. NOw he has help. ITS DONE, they are the best team in the NBA RIGHTNOW because of last night. There should be no doubts anymore. They have a top record, they beat everyone else. GOOD BYE

I have to disagree, when the Celtics made those 9-2 runs, the Lakers hung in there and battled back. Last year, those runs would have turned in 18-2 runs and they would have been blown out. They showed resilience, not to mention Kobe did not score in the OT, it was Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol making all the plays in overtime.

I think the Celts bring it to a whole other level in the finals.

The previous poster "John Starks" is absolutely correct in saying that the Celtics streaked down the court cheering like they had just won a playoff game less than two weeks ago against the Sixers. You didn't see anybody creating a STUPID thread like this asking why the Celtics are celebrating such a lowly win? Why shouldn't the Lakers celebrate after winning in Boston, in overtime?

http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/dailydime?page=dime-090112

Wade, whose services were needed to both initiate and finish for the Heat on offense, only reciprocated the star-guarding duties in the first half. He scored 27 points -- more than half while Bryant was out of the game -- and had nine assists.

Bryant took only one shot in the first quarter (a 3-pointer he made), while dishing off six assists. On defense he was up in Wade's jersey, forcing Wade to use every bit of his All-Star skills to get six points in the opening quarter. It wasn't a coincidence that Wade went on a mini-spree in the second quarter, checking into the game and scoring seven points in less than a minute while Bryant was on the bench. Bryant came back in and held Wade to two more points until halftime.

Wade was at it again in the fourth quarter, like a racer staying on the road to gain a lap while everyone else makes a pit stop, with another minute-long seven-point outburst in the fourth quarter while Bryant was out.

Indeed, once Bryant returned, Wade didn't score again in the final seven minutes. Wade turned into a setup man for Michael Beasley, finding him for an alley-oop, a 3-pointer and a jumper, part of a 16-point fourth quarter from Beasley that kept this game undecided until the final seconds.


I forgot how right you were about him not shutting down Wade. Fairandbalanced just makes threads like this to try and bait laker fans when he has no real intelligence of the game. He probably didnt even watch the game and is trying to make comments as if he was actually informed. Everybody would just be better off ignoring him. The celtics got outplayed by a better team and he has a hard time accepting that, which is fine.

Fair and Balanced really I don't see that in your recent two NBA forum threads.


What's funny about this guy is with all the hate he brings towards the Lakers, he still comes into Lakers game threads with posts like this...


KOBEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEE bRYANTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT FOR mvp

Then I guess by "Fair & Balanced" he means he wants to fairly rip on the Lakers after he praises them for the obvious (maybe it's a self-hate kind of thing).

The Lakers have every right to be happy about the win. Playing on a second night of a back to back, with the defending champs trying to defend their home court. LA never played Boston this year with all their guys. It's LA's turn to win the best record in the NBA, and sweep Boston in the regular season (it was Boston last year). They haven't won anything yet. But the key word is yet.

Why were the Lakers rejoicing after beating the Celtics? It was a great game, very competitive and I think their aggressiveness matched the Celtics toughness.

Because they won the game. Nothing wrong with that.

I mean, KG goes berserk after every single play and Eddie House practically jizzes in his pants after every three he makes.

The Lakers celebrating an actual huge win, which both teams admittedly said was very important, is OK.

Celts didn't need the home court last year did they? why would they need it this year. Everything will be the same - "Kareem" Bynum will not get back.

Lakers are sky high after the fill in for Bynum routine. Soon enough the players who are getting more time will get exposed, the other players on the team will weary of the Kobe show, and the Lakers will win 62 or less games. Celts will win about 64.

Finals should feature the Celts and the Lakers, assuming the officials are decent , we'll get the same outcome as last year Pierce will swallow Kobe, and Allen who is much healthier this year will bomb from outside and KG will dominate inside, and the Series will be over in 6. Wham Bam


WHAT?????? Without HCA they dont win the Ship last year Please get these trolls outta here!

It has nothing to do with how many post I have vs how many you have. I'm just pointing out the obvious fact that you are here to do nothing but bait. You have not made one post without trying to bait a Laker fan. You could have posted 10,000 times. With a post like the one I quoted you on, you sound like a little kid who gets picked on at school and needs to get on the computer to pump up your self esteem. Parents not hug you enough?

Agreed. People knit-pick way too much. The Celtics celebrated when they beat the 76ers a couple days ago. No one is criticizing them for over celebrating.

And I think Wilbon said on PTI today that they have the 'Boston Celtics' written on a white board in their locker room or something like that? That is determination.

Really? As pointless as the tread "gasoft?" If people make treads trying to praise the Lakers, there should be an alternative because that team is as weak as sugarcane stem.

LOL, preach on Bro., the lakers are a pretender, they aint nothing. Its obvious Kobe is in the NBA for individual accolades. Lebron and Wade are way better than "that one" playing for the LA suckers!!!! nuff said.

It's simple, they won in Boston without their starting center. It was a big game, finals rematch, a rival, and Boston is cocky as hell...Good win LA

Why would you say the celtics are cocky, they have a swagger to em', they are not cocky. Get it right.

Yea, it still only counts as one win. I can't imagine what they would do if they did win it all.

It wasn't like the won a normal regular season game. They are playing the best team in the league and you win on a game ending defensive stand in OT. Its not that weird to be pumped about that. Lots of teams do that, a game ending defensive stand/blocked shot is almost like a buzzer beater.

The Sixers celebrated even more the other day when Dalembert blocked T-Macs 3 at the end of the game. They are just celebrating a big play at the end of a game in a big rivalry game.
