if we have kobe shaq and malone...we will win

if we have no kobe shaq and malone, we'll hafta hope for a career night from GP...which is highly unlikely, and we will lose without 3 of our big 4...

we need to win this game to get some revenge on this team...

What about our starters for this game:
maybe:
PG Payton/Fisher
SG Rush/???
SF Russel/Walton
PF Medvedenko/george
C Cook/sampson

I dont know about Shaq but probably he wont play

Rush, Medvedenko must step up with some numbers. Cook and Sampson must have breakout night in defence and get some points also. Fish..... God just once please!!!!
Payton must remind himself of being a leader. We will need assists from Walton and few 3s from BRuss. George its a high time to back the team up! I've got a feeling this will be one of thoese nights when everythings clicks :jam2:

Lakers 98
Nuggets 94

We will not have either Shaq, Malone & Kobe, but without them GP & our bench players can prove, they can play well!!!

Melo is going to walk all over us, who we really need to keep our eye on defensivly is that clutch Earl Boykins.

im sorry guys we will NOT win...i repeat...we will NOT win without shaq karl and kobe...there is no chance...we lost to denver BADLY even with kobe...do we even have a chance without kobe and our big men? Unless payton has a career night(33 pts 12 rebs 10 assists kind of night) and kareem rush goes for 20+...which prolly wont happen...WE HAVE NO CHANCE

I honestly can't see it as a blowout for them, Shaq isn't motivated but does know that since its only him and Gary who can carry the team to victory the pressure is on him, lets hope he can do what he does best and thats dominate. If Shaq plays we might win by a FEW points or lose by less than 10. If he doesn't then they might as well as the L to our record.

Neither do I-- last report I heard is that Shaq was having trouble moving side to side with his legs.

LA Times reports: Shaq won't play and Fisher will start

starting line up:
Grant
Slava
George
Fisher
Payton

This doesn't make a lot of sence, because he is going to play the point off the bench? Rush or Walton?

the bulls are doing crappy as usual. i dont think crawford needs to be traded...just worked on. i guess we'll see after this season. They need to do something though. i dont know what...maybe save cap room for kobe....

why do you ask? pissed that i think the lakers will lose? if you responded the way you did because of my baseless prediction then you need to kick back.

we will win because we signed Ime Udoka. Not really, but I think we may be able to pull off a win here, if we play some good team ball, like we did in the second half of the Cavs game and against the Hawks.

I will post my player matchups tomorrow

i believe that rush and slava will have a nice game tomorrow. each at least over 10 points. The deciding factor of whether we will win or not is if gary payton will pull a 5-22 night again or if he makes a decent 12-18. Look for the lakers to make the trasition to a running game tomorrow. i dont really expect too much of the triangle offense as there is no legit players to fill up the remaining two spots.

Win or lose. With the Lakers being shorthanded, I'll be happy if the Laker role players just put up a great effort esp. in rebounding and defense. Cook, Rush, Sampson, and Walton hopefully will use this game to showcase their skills and potential. The coaching staff and fans will be watching them closely. I like to see Slava, Cook, and Sampson try to get something close to a double double (pts. and rebs).

I'll be pleasantly surprised if the Lakers beat the Nuggets. They certainly can, but everyone must play great defense and make their shots. Anthony should be double-teamed every time he gets the ball and the guys must rotate when he passes it. Losing again to Denver will hurt, but given the current situation, I hope the team gives a good effort and makes the game close. This is a difficult time and all the players must rise to the challenge. :man7:

As of this morning on Lakers radio, I heard that the trainers have cleared Shaq to play tonight, but it'll be up to him if he decides to do so. As of yesterday, they said he was at 60%.

Also for ALL Laker fans, especially the Southern Californians, not quite sure when but there will be an unveiling of a Magic Johnson statue at the Staples Center. WHAT AN HONOR!!! :bow: I'm sure we'll hear more about it soon!

Regarding tonight's game, GOOOOO LAKERS!!! I don't care which Lakers play....just fight hard :boxing1: and win!!!! :jam2:

If we win with only GP that shows that our bench is decent.

Our bench has proven they are decent-- our problem recently had been DEFENSE. Poor rotational defense, poor defense in transition, poor pick and roll defense.
