Media Day Notes: Sasha Bulks Up & More

Then you go on to call people who disagree with those outlandish sentiments a douchebag. I understand exactly what you are saying.

But this is no surprise coming from a guy who believes Sasha has a top 5 shot and is seriously trying to argue that he would be second all-time in terms a freethrow shooting (which he wouldn't be based on the number of freethrows he has attempted.)

I love your inability to read. It has provided a few minutes of enjoyment. I've never said that Sasha "would be" anything. Since I've never said it, I certainly didn't stage an argument toward that thesis, so good luck in trying to establish that claim. It's simply a fact that he has shot FTs remarkably well, has been touted at all levels for his pure stroke. He hasn't been able to do it in a game...but it's not his mechanics. They're beautiful.

As for Sasha's defense, there are many PGs and many SGs who do not play good defense, but we don't stop calling them PGs or SGs. I know that you think Sasha plays no defense, but why should Sasha be held to a standard different from the other guards in the league? He has the length to play SG, the skill set to play PG offensively. His defensive numbers are good, he has looked pretty good defensively against some top PGs (e.g., Iverson, Bibby).

Don't forget that top 5 shot.
Considering his career FT% would put him at #2 all-time, and given exactly what I spelled out that "top 5 shot" to mean, I won't forget it until he loses it. You'd do well to face reality.



Sasha's form is money. Those who think that function won't eventually follow form are simply crazy.
There are some serious "NON"-Fans on this web site

He's had two years, so we kind of cut him some slack, but now he knows the ropes, he's had all off-season to practice his game and get in shape, so Im expecting a big year as a sixth man or seventh man or whatever lol.


You can't improve your game in just one season. If it were that easy, there would be a lot more quality players in this league. This will be a VERY long process.


Sasha will be better this year and he probably will play more than Farmer Phil does not play rookies much... Just ask Bynum!!!. He has bulked up which will help against the smaller guards. His first year he was learning the league. His 2nd year he had a new coach and offense to learn. Sasha now has 1yr of the triangle under his belt. He is not bad on defense..the offense will come!!! So get off his back!! Sasha would school all of you!!!

Oh ok, so Sasha has a top 5 shot and an then you're claiming he is the second best free throw shooter of all-time.

That isn't a reality. It's called the fantasy world.

Why the indefinite article for reality and the definite for fantasy? I have no clue what you're trying to say by that. As for the rest, it's all there. Anyone who can read English knows exactly what I'm saying. Keep playing your game. It seems to have served you well.

You are hating, but I will repeat myself: Get off his back ...Sasha would school you and make you cry like a girl!!! Lets wait and see how he plays before you say anything.

funny thing is that when Sasha has confidence in his stroke he barely moves the net. I think Sasha will come out with some serious stroke play this year especially with Vlad being on the team.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Farmars ink is probably the gayest thing I have seen since sasha.
Not that theres anything wrong with it. I am still frightened that sasha and farmar will be relied on for strong play. Farmar at least showed in the tournie that he can embrace defense. I am actually fairly optimistic about our PG situation

well, i'll play the same amount of minutes as Farmer. because Farmer, won't play for lakers. and 2nd, just aks Bynum? Bynum wouldn't get solid minutes in 99% of teams in the league. when was the last time Phil had a NBA - ready rookie, who was able to make an immediate impact on the team?

And your point is????What???

Phil is known for not playing rookies so Sasha and Parker will play...they know the triangle. Bynum will play more this year due to Chris not even ready to play. What is your point again????

I love your inability to form an argument about Sasha that be would actually be considered valid in the real world. And your consistent back pedaling regarding this subject has provided me with more more than a few minutes of laughter.

Except you did.

He hasn't even cracked 75 FT attempts for his entire career. And his pure stroke sure hasn't been touted at the NBA level.

What the hell are you even talking about.

1) No one is holding Sasha to a different standard

2) Sasha does not play 'good' defense. Empirical evidence, which is called Game Tapes show this. He is good at being a pest, thats about it.

3) So what if he has the length? He lacks the athleticism, mind set, lateral quickness to be effective.

No worries though, Sasha won't be Laker much longer.

Well, at least he actually packed on some muscle this summer. Last summer he said he bulked up his upper body, yet he looked exactly the same. So, he either fibbed or had a scale which was from the dollar store.
