eh, the lakers didn't play with much intensity at all in the first half. they asserted their will a bit in the third, i think in part because some of the opponents were doing some talking in the first half. when the starters went out, the lead disappeared, then kobe started taking it personally. the lakers definitely tried to win down the stretch, then fell apart.

is it embarrassing? i don't think so. no more than getting your salad tossed by the wolves, for sure.

i think people are underestimating the motivation difference that was palpable, quite frankly. pete mickael never made it in the nba (nor should he have, as he's a poor man's ruben patterson), and he wanted to stick it to the lakers in front of thousands of screaming fans. navarro is a superstar overseas, but was a scrub on the grizzlies in the nba...axe to grind.

they played harder, and they played better. and judging from kobe's reaction immediately after the game, i think it's a total non-starter in terms of laker fan anxiety. getting outplayed by a solid team, on the road, in a game that's huge for them and means literally nothing to you...no biggie.

Phil Jackson said he thinks F.C. Barcelona plays well, but does not think they'd be able to compete on a nightly basis in the NBA.

What the heck. I only said i liked the game. Getting tired of the spanish tag for some fans. Read the site rules again and stop looking for other posters or me to react to any random comment.

Hi, first, excuse me for my bad english. I've seen the match and Barcelona have done a better game and a better teamwork, defensive and tactically I think that we are the best team in Europe and better than many teams of NBA though the individual quality of most of our players is lower, I know that Lakers are in pre-season but we have just started a few weeks ago and we have played with NBA rules and we made a match in Los Angeles 2 years ago too i think in December losing for few points. I think that Phil Jackson maybe has been a bit rabid telling that we are not 'a NBA team', we are not obviously Lakers or Celtics, I think that in NBA we maybe would not be a play-off team but we would be better than some other teams as Nets, Minessota or Pistons for example.
You just look how Ricky Rubio plays, he is not the best in this team, however he is young, but today he made an horrible match, best were Navarro and Mickael, good match of Morris too, and Vázquez is another good player with NBA level.

Ah, I don't care if you beat spanish 'national' team, a lot of people here want a catalan national team and we are FC Barcelona, it's the same club as the football team, we have got too handball, rugby (american football), hockey...

Good luck in season.

Have some humility. Barcelona played really well, and even though we may not having been playing with full effort the whole game or a fully healthy bench it's still a fairly impressive win. Injuries happen in the regular season too, and it's not like the Lakers have never been accused of not giving enough effort in the regular season. We will lose occasionally during the season to crappy teams that have no business even competing with our bench. These things happen, no need to get butthurt about it and start insulting the other team. Does it mean they're better than us? Of course not. Sure it can be disappointing but show some class, act the bigger man, and at least be able to say 'good game'.

All this Barcelona and Spanish Lakers fan bashing because they beat us is embarrassing. I'm happy to have Lakers fans in Spain, I'm happy to be a fan of the most internationally-respected basketball team, and I don't mind congratulating them on a friendly, exhibition match. I'd be happy to see the Lakers play them again, perhaps with a healthier and more practiced squad in some future exhibition game.

Why exactly is FCB's post so funny, what am I missing. He made an intelligent post, showed class, didn't bash anyone just defended his team and he gets laughed at? Maybe some posters here could stand to show a little more class, not exactly proving those calling us 'arrogant Americans' wrong when we act this way to new members and Spanish fans, have some respect people.

hi from spain,

sorry for my english. i attended to yesterday´s match, and seeing the legendary lakers in my hometown and players such kobe, dereck fisher, ron artest and, obiously pau was thrilling!!!!(i literally made thousands and thousands of snapshoots). it was a night to remember.
of course lakers we´re not in peak condition, of course many NBA teams are much better than european teams or from elsewhere and of course NBA teams will win 9 out 10 times they face any other team of the world, but let us enjoy this victory!!!, although for one day.

after that, let´s focus on the season to come where lakers will have to work harder than ever in order to defeat boston celtics or miami heat, so go lakers!!!!

PS:once again, sorry for my english

Lo que pasa es que hay un par de imbéciles que la tienen tomada conmigo desde que discutimos acerca de Rudy y Ricky en otros hilos. Hay uno que es un listo que se piensa que cada español que escribe aquí soy yo con otra cuenta y otro que a la mínima que hay una noticia sobre españoles salta a hacer la gracia y me tienen hasta las narices.

^ Sure, bystander sometimes is biased towards his country or whatnot, but aren't we all victims of showing bias in some form? He's been a great member and contributor on this board for a while so you guys should just let him be. And I thought it was expected for some new Spanish supporters to sign up on this board after yesterday's game.

Why the hell aren't you banned? Some of you really need to start showing other people some respect. Have some freaking class for once in your life. Just because they are from a different country doesn't make them any less of a human. Get over yourselves.

To the Spanish posters, ignore those ******. Feel free to post on the forum. Your opinions are welcomed here.
