Is it just me or does the nba.com lakers site need to have someone update it, it is the official site of the lakers but it SUCKS, I'd rather come here to clublakers.com, because it has much more information. I'm glad I found this website, because the official site never changes.
Lakers.com is ran by the NBA and is a completely different type of site from this one (it does not have a discussion board, which this site is). I don't think they have anyone assigned to updating the site during most of the off-season, but when the season is in play, it's a good site for Lakers info.
Hey, I WANT people to prefer CL to the official website. I want people to always check us first for the latest Laker news and updates. It will take a while for that to happen, but since we conglomerate all the different articles of tons of sites onto the daily already and have people with expert opinions (especially me .) and we give people more of a voice, have lots of different content and that is why people come more often as we go along. The TV show (and hopefully the liscensed rights to the team and a partnership with the organization) will make this site WAY more popular....
I couldn't agree more. The official team website is very lack luster, kinda like a super model who is hella fine, but also whom is too damn finaky and stuck to the good girl script. Clublakers.com was referred to me by a friend of mine almost a year ago now, and I have been coming here for news updates and commentary ever since.
Great job guys(founders and opporators of, "the club."
Keep up the good work, and yeah we're a little biased, but when you true Lake-fan, that's how we be.
That's why I like bein a part of a community board. Cuz it's us fans that keep it goin, cuz of our luv for the game. We insight eachother, and get eachothers views, and also get very logical opinions, better than most sportswriters. Ur right, each teams offical site doesn't include a lotta stuff we have, but hey, there can only be one, clublakers!
I found out about this site by mistake. I was searching in yahoo and found it. For a month I was just a GUEST and I was scoping the site out. Then I was so impressed at the rate of new info coming in and the individuals contributing to the site that I quickly signed up. Feels like a family in here. We might argue at times, but at the end we respect each other.
I forgot how I found this site out... I was just lookin for some Lakers forum posting sites, and this one caught mah eye. I didn't like the fact that other forums had SOOO many members, and this one seemed to fit mah needs... I'm luvin it, and luvin tha fact that we're makin this site grow day by day.
What I liked about CL when I first found it was the potential. There weren't a whole lot of members yet, but the members that came were interested in talking about the Lakers, not posting weird dumb incoherent things with lots of symbols and exclamation points...The people here have always been about breaking down the finer details of the best team in NBA history (soon to be not only the winningest but the most often champions)...the Los Angeles Lakers...
Yeah this site is really the one. I have more than 25 links about NBA and Lakers but since I found CL I am going there really seldom. The site is not only up to date (well, do you enjoy your holiday CL ) it is really nice and easy to use. As Kobe1 said it is a bit like a familly. Now that this site will grow condiderably in the next years in hope we can keep the atmosfer the same as now, with interesting thread and opinions. I would love to see more fans from other team. I think the best thread are the ones where people doesn't agree and where "clever" fans from others teams said what they think.
