Fisher! Turiaf, I thought he was hilarious Fox from the early 3peat (liked his attitude) Lamar - great dude, fun and friendly.. clearly loved LA Luke Walton for the LULZ
"The first time I ever saw my uniform hanging in the locker I put it on right away, and it just felt like I was putting on golden armour. From that day forward, I just called it 'the golden armour', it just felt like there was something mystical and magical about it" - Kobe Bryant.
Bynum - Everything he does you would just with a Fisher - For obvious reasons. Please bring him back someway.. just not on the court. Odom - One of my all-time favorite Lakers. Nick Van Exel - Was too young for the Showtime era but he was my first favorite Laker. The moves he would put on would put players like Westbrook to shame. Shaq - 99% of Laker fans loved him when he was here. I'm one of them.

I remember vividly LO slapping KG's behind. What I just noticed for the first time was the sneaky fouls LO was committing by bashing his shoulder repeatedly into KG's chest. When KG retaliated, he was caught by the ref then LO slapped KG's behind and KG was clearly frustrated. It was like a game within the game.

"To be removed if the Lakers make the playoffs." Well, I removed it for an hour and decided to put it back. I have to be honest.
That video really does make me miss LO. At his best he was such a smooth, veteran player in every facet. I wonder what the real story was on his dropoff, exile, etc. It would be interesting to have it all come out someday
I miss our last title squads. Ariza, Powell, Sasha, Shannon, DJ, Morrison, LO, Fisher....we were deep and we had great team chemistry. Even if the guys didn't contribute much our team just had a lot of personality and everybody seemed close. It was sad seeing these guys leave one by one and slowly but surely, I felt less and less connected to our team. Looks like it's transferred on the court as well.
I'd say I miss about 90% of all the former Lakers... with the exceptions of guys who were aholes or weren't on the team long... Rodman, J.R. Rider, Barnes, etc. Something changes once players put on that purple and gold.
In the real world, the day Steph awoke at 9 a.m. to begin his Ustream show, Kobe Bryant probably awoke at the same time, even if it was 6 a.m. in California, and lifted weights.
Gail Goodrich- First Laker I followed Orlando Woolridge- Great competitor Sedale Threatt- Thrust into a "no win" situation and still won... Elden Campbell- Only player in League history to raise his scoring average 7 seasons in a row. Derrick Fisher-Leader and "bulldog".... we are missing his leadership without a doubt. Vlade Divac- Had huge shoes to fill and did a decent job in doing so. Sasha Vujacic- Competitor and occasional shooter. Bob McAdoo- One of the best 5 scorers I've ever seen.
