Oh, and thanks to TrillyandTruly for providing DOOM for the last game. I hope you keep contributing to this thread. The more, the better.
I'm starting this a little early but what the heck...with the injury to Kobe Bryant, this game just became a lot more interesting and relevant and winnable.
The Lakers without Kobe Bryant made not have what it takes to get into the playoffs, especially if Utah and Denver can get their stuff together. It was a difficult task with Kobe. If his ankle is as bad as reported, this could be a defining moment for the Laker franchise. Can all those pieces still form a winning picture without Bryant in the middle of it?
I remain somewhat skeptical about the injury, for the simple reason this is the Brave Little Soldier we're talking about.
There have been traditions here over the years before Kings-Laker games. One of them is to "chant" BEAT LA in a dedicated fandom thread. The other is for me to post a very traditional comment. I'll start the fandom thread in a moment. In the meantime, here's my comment:
DIE LAKER SCUM!!!
It won't be the last time. It isn't the Jameson talking, but I've got a good feeling that this isn't the last time that the SACRAMENTO Kings beat down the Lakers.
Final prediction: Kings 118 Lakers 97....Why? Not because I'm optimistic.....But because.....
LUCK THE FAKERS!!!
Cousins is still faking his injury and won't be playing.
According to Jason Ross on Twitter, Gavin Maloof is at the Staples Center for the Kings vs. Lakers game tonight.
Is he wearing a Lakers jersey, or a Sonics jersey?
Hot Mess being the first commercial during the first commercial break has been a good sign, i think we’ve won each time
Looks like Stern has sent the memo to the refs. The L%$^s must make the playoffs.
Lakers are without Pau and Kobe. Kings have this game to lose.
Did Howard really hit two consecutive free throws.
Love how we play without Cousins.
losing to a less than threatening Laker team who are missing both Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol?
The defense is so bad. STOP HELPING. Funnel guys into the lane. It's better than leaving shooter after shooter wide open. Look at who you are playing! If Nash and Blake and Jamison can get to the basket god bless them. I'll take my chances there. But don't leave them wide open on the perimeter
Dude, stop f***ing letting the Lakers score 3 seconds after a made basket.
That's happened 4 times in the 2nd quarter.
I'm late to the party, so no DMC, what's the story? “hurt leg” again?
he injured his talent, ruptured his skill
having Cousins would have been useful
Would've fouled out by now
just saying nobody can stop Howard
Kings getting a lot of their shots blocked
i can't believe we are going to get blown out by this sorry *** Laker team minus Gasol/Bryant
We might want to guard Jamison on the 3pt line. Just maybe
Damn Lakers are on tonight.
Jamison shoots 3's. He's been doing it for 10 years. Don't leave him. Is it that hard?
Now Thompson fouls Howard.
Thompson, I'm sick of you not being great.
Does it look like I give a s*** about whether or not Pau will play?
well we F'd that up
kind of the day for Jameson, I guess
Metta World Korea with the 2
Blake has 6 assists in 6 minutes!
Maybe we just play the Lakers better when their superstars are playing
Well, I hate to admit it, but Cole looks like junk tonight.
Did Bill Walton just attribute the lakers' success to Chick Hearn? I mean, I know Chick was the greatest but, really?
of course we play the Lakers on the night where Howard makes freethrows
I don't like Dwight hittin' FTs
The fan's reactions is pissing me off.
I just can't wait until Kobe retires. I would love to see what La La land turns into.
Would Nash play better defense with a cain? I think so
This would be like playing the best basketball player at your school one on one. Except he is playing on one leg and with one arm
Well...time to put in the white boys. Jimmer and Aldrich so we can pull another miracle comeback like they did against the Bucks
Our overall dumbness rearing its ugly head.
JT fast break and no one wants to guard Blake.
We literally don't have an offense.
cant believe we lost to this joke of a Laker roster
Well its one of those days.jeez..At least I get to watch the Walking Dead later
Jamison for 3.
this game is slipping away
not slipping away, its over
well, God bless you guys for always being nice and having me on your blog, I will pray that Sacramento not lose the Kings but we’ll see what happens, good night, don’t jump off a cliff or anything
screw this, I hate the Lakers :(
I gotta get outta here later internet!
