I got kicked out of LG about 4 months ago. Was never told why, but I think it was because I said I wanted to lick Ann Curry's butt. I don't know.


Wasnt it Stephen Curry?

MT: Since you seem to know Dwight Howard pretty well, let me ask you this. He was criticized in Orlando for not having the type of "serious" personality needed to really lead a team. If that's true, how does his demeanor fit in in L.A. with Bryant, Nash and Gasol in the locker room?
CDR: I feel like Dwight can be himself over here because you have such serious guys in Kobe and Nash, and more of a loving type of guy in Pau. With that said, things in general are just more serious over here. Dwight has never had these kinds of expectations. I tell him all the time, which you've seen after practice: 'You may have to become a more serious guy because the expectations are so high and you have to meet them. You have a chance to be one of the greatest big men, a chance to be in the discussion. Why not do it? It may mean cutting down a little bit on the laughing and joking. I want him to be that dude every day. Because that's what Kobe does. Every play. Kobe wants you to know that you're not on his level. I want Dwight to be that.

MT: So would Dwight be better on the court if he was meaner? Even if that's not his natural way?
CDR: I feel like yes. Just demoralize your opponent every time. Dunk on him. Don't help him up. "I just dunked on you!' I want opponents to fake injuries when it's time to play Dwight. I grew up watching the Bad Boys, and those guys were mean out there, man.


It's quite telling from this interview during last year's preseason that Dwight didn't have "it" then, and still doesn't have "it" now. I sure hope CDR sticks around with us because all indicators show he has "it".


That interview is good enough for me. DO IT MITCH!
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

Lakers really liked Chris Douglas-Roberts last season. If they're not looking to spend much more, wouldn't be shocked if he made the team.

I really am excited to watch him during the Summer League and in our first game tonight at 5pm on TWC or NBATV if you have that as well.

I'm sorry, but I hope he stinks it up. I need me some Machine on the team. Even he made the team, MDA probably will hardly play him since he has no special talent on offense. Whereas I could see him giving the Machine plenty of minutes and be his little Goran Dragic :man12:

CDR looks almost... thin to me, is it just me? He looks smaller, maybe it's partly the high hair and awful t-shirt uninforms? :man10: He's playing just fine though, just scored.

I noticed this too.

Also, Kerr doesn't know what the hell he's talking about when he says Kobe won't be back till the New Year :disagree: :man10:

These guys don't know S***

Kerr and Reggie haven't shut up, and they aren't even calling the game. :man10: Just talking to talk, Kerr is annoying IMO and the sound quality is awful for some reason, sounds like AM radio.

I dunno, I think they're more entertaining than last seasons summer league team, or at least not any worse. I think #4 Lester Hudson looked under control at PG, CDR got to the rim a few times, and Sacre has looked good.

Can he shoot from the perimeter? That's what will get him playing time.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Well, doesn't look good for CDR after one game if you ask me. He looka out of shape, almost tired, had no real impact, and he seemed to twist his ankle and limp through half the game. If he's hurt, or keeps playing like this we won't keep him, he doesn't look like the same player from last season. If he turns it around from here maybe he gets a camp invite, but I don't know, disappointed.

Pretty inauspicious start for him. I think he got injured (didn't watch the whole game), but he didn't seem engaged at all.

I think he knows he's getting an invite so he's not pushing himself. I don't like it.

He's got a lot of work to do if he wants to make the team and he does get an invite to camp. Even before he got hurt he wasn't looking very invested in the game. He was getting to the rim a few times before that at least though, but man I'm still disappointed in what I saw.
