A New Nick-Name for this legendary Laker Squad?

Postby Vasashi17 on Thu Jul 17, 2003 8:16 pm

Okay..we call our top 4 that, but what do we call the whole team....we had Showtime and the Lake Show...now what?
What about the Ring Show or the Bling Show
Or the Greatest Show on Wood

Well there's Showtime and now there's Fo'Time! I would go for Fantastic 4 for GP, Malone, Kobe and Shaq.

if you ask me this Laker team is a modern take on "Lord of the Rings". I will explain.

GP and the Mailman join the Lakers for one purpose and that is win a ring. By joining the remaining Lakers they have now completed the "Fellowship of the Ring".

As the Spurs are the defending champions, the road to the ring goes past them. With Rasho now joing Tim we once again have 2 7 footers against us - "The Two Towers"

and then the last part

Shaq has been training all offseason to return to his peak form. This comming season will see Shaq back to his unstoppable best, therefore completing the trilogy - "Return of the King"

As I said, this season has "Lord of the Rings" written all over it.

#1 Kobe fan, I love that, you should submit it as a wallpaper and use it as ur sig.

However, I wouldn't want this squad to be known as LXG, because you can't compare a joke of a movie to a first-class hall of fame team. For those of you who saw LXG, I'm sure you will agree it was a waste of two hours of your life.

What's golden, those were some of the deepest basketball analogies I have ever seen... they make you take a step back and say "whoa."

I'm feelin' the Lord of the Rings analogy... although it should be Lords of the Ring haha.

I was thinkin' we should just change the name of our team from the LA Lakers to the LA Allstars. :mhihi:

i forgot to add that my prefered nickname for the new squad whould have to be "The Fellowship", quite simply because it includes the role players as well.

realistically tho, beyond our lil circle, i think more publicly in the media circuits, something having to do w/ Bling will be more likely

#1_Kobe_fan that ish is dope. u should definately make that a wallpaper. i would have that on my desktop for a long time, maybe the whole season.
i like your "lord of the rings" analogy whats golden.
the only names i can think of that would represent the entire squad would be...

1)The Purple & Gold Reign of Terror
2)League Sweeper
3)Royal Majesties
4)Lake Jewelers

...what u guys think?

well in that case i don't think it's possible to come up with a nickname for them until we see them play. we will only be able to come up with a name for this new era based on their style of play.

Fantasic 4 is real good. Greatest Show on wood is real good. but we gotta have a name that involes the #4.

Weapons of Mass Destruction is good, but there is no way they will use it. It will be "politically incorrect"
