2012-13 Los Angeles Lakers Thread

f**k i cant believe we pulled out a win!!! Kobe is a clutch machine!!!! Lakers all the way baby!
This is one of the best stretches of Kobe's career. Considering the mileage that he has on him, what he's doing right now is unprecedented. No one in the NBA has had a stretch of games like this one while carrying even close to the amount of mileage that he's carrying. I don't care if he's shooting liquid Teen Wolf into his veins at mid court right before the game, this is incredible.

I freebased some black tar Teen Wolf once. Things got silly.

21 games, so since the Memphis game with the team meeting? It's been a better stretch to watch but we still need to string together more impressive performances and really, more consistent performances for 48 minutes, especially on the defensive side of the floor. These slow first halves are ridiculous.

Regardless, in that stretch we've beaten OKC, Brooklyn, Boston, and ATL, albeit all at home except for Brooklyn. The Bulls game this Sunday, Pacers game (road) next Friday, and Warriors game (road) on the 25th will be the most telling of games as to whether we're making strides towards not just making the playoffs but not making the playoffs just to be some top seeds door step into the 2nd round. Obviously, we need to take every game seriously and treat each one like win or die but I'll be especially interested to see how we play in those three as this month comes to an end.
ok what the hell is going on? how come Earl Clark didn't come into the game for Meeks? They could've went with Nash, Kobe, Clark, MWP, and Howard instead of letting Toronto constantly abuse Meeks
Brandon Jennings intends to leave the Milwaukee Bucks if he is unable to come to terms with the franchise on a long-term deal this summer as a restricted free agency.

"If I take the qualifying offer and become an [unrestricted] free agent there is no way I am coming back," Jennings told Yahoo! Sports on Friday after practice. "There is no way."

Jennings turned down a four-year, $40 million offer before the season.

Jennings would make $4.5 million if he plays the 13-14 NBA season under the qualifying offer.

"It's not unfair to make that statement if he feels there is not a deal fair to him this summer," Bucks general manager John Hammond said of Jennings' stance. "I would be surprised if it happens. But he is operating within the [collective bargaining] rules. I'm not taken aback. It's a natural discussion to have."

For Jennings to re-sign with the Bucks long-term, he is seeking a lucrative contract and changes to the roster to become a title contender.

"I just want to win," Jennings said. "The way I am playing now, I just want to go to a winning team and play like that. I don't care about being a superstar or being the main guy. I did that [the] first four years. I just want to win and be somewhere where it's all about winning.

"I'm not saying the Bucks aren't about winning. But I think [a title caliber situation] will help me, motivate my game and then you have to perform."

Local product too...dare I say a Laker in a couple years?

This team is such a s**t show on defense. I don't think I've ever watched a game where I simultaneously felt two opposite emotions like that. Complete awe of Kobe, and a seething rage against D'Antoni.
Pete check PM.

Utah got blown out. Houston's tied with PHX. We'll see what GS does tonight. We should make the playoffs.
