Lakers you miss for purely sentimental reasons

Lakers you miss for purely sentimental reasons

Postby SpencerHarrison on Tue Jan 29, 2013 1:03 am

Not sure if there is a similar thread, but I was reading the other one about former championship teams and thought "I miss the Machine. For no good reason."

Mbenga obviously also comes to mind. And I'm GOING to miss Sacre's bench cheering.

What recent Laker castoffs do you miss regardless of basketball ability?

Mbenga
Slava
Fisher
Lamar (at this point it's only sentimental since his game has vanished)
Sasha

Slava laughed at the suggestion his skills might be affected by the down time. "Are you kidding?" he said. "Basketball is like ball. It's all a circle."

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

Bynum - Everything he does you would just :nono2: with a :lol:
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. :man10: :man10:

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

Easy. Fisher, he will always have a place in my heart. He's just like Kobe in someone who came to the Lakers in 1996 and right when I started following this team in 1997.

Just the moments: 2001 Playoffs where you felt like he would never miss a 3, 0.4 shot, 2009 NBA Finals Big Shots, and of course his continued leadership while he was here.

I don't know if it will ever happen, but I would love it if his jersey was retired or something close to that kind of honor.

Eddie Jones. I loved watching that guy because he played hard and was great on both sides of the floor.

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.

Fish and Eddie Jones.
