incorrect. Blake does go to the basket just not to score but to create a score. Jordy attacks the basket to score. Two different reasons for attacking. We don't need to knock one in order to praise the other.

Jordy played great yesterday plain and simple.

I like Blake production this year. But I'm always a bit frustrated when Blake goes to the basket and never shoot. I'm sure other teams knows he's not going to shoot.


Blake is a smart player. He shoots when he knows he has the shot. He doesn't have the explosive power Jordy does when going to the rack. Sometimes it looks like he should shoot but I trust his instincts. Jordy sometimes shouldn't shoot and instead kick it out but he has the explosiveness to get the rack and does so. They are playing within their skillsets which are different. IMO.
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.

Have you missed the times of late where Blake (who "never" shoots) is doing exactly that and putting it in the hole around the rim? He will take the shot if he has the step or the angle to get past. Layups, scoop layups off dribble one handed like Nash, floater, reverse layup. That is more common now that at start of the season. Not as common as Farmar. But not "never".

I don't know if the percentages reflect it or not, but I feel like his jumper has improved. When he pulls up from 18 to 20 feet with a man on him now, more often than not I feel like it's going to go in. And when he's open for a 3 I almost expect it to go in.

How does Farmar get the least amount of PT tonight? Shawne Williams got almost 28 mins!

Blake was playing well. MDA generally likes to go with the guy who is doing everything right, and he loves Blake in general.

And you can't argue with that production. Blake has been playing lights out lately.

interesting that dantoni would play nash and blake together but will NEVER play blake and farmer together.
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.
You know who I am talking about.

Interesting yes. But crap, I'm sure Dan reads CL and now you have just reminded him about that stiffy he gets when he has Steve Black at the 2. :disagree: :bang:

For real though, we no longer have depth at the 1 so that is likely more of the reason.

Best game as a Laker since his return; really was the floor general out there, hit big shots, ran the Pick and Roll beautifully, and was really composed down the stretch of that game...he's starting to find himself in this offense.

Creepy that this actually happened tonight right after I said he never does it. Though he was kind of forced to because of how well farmar was playing.

We have to re-sign Farmar. He's exactly what we need. No, he's not a star, but he does the job and brings that energy our team needs. Off the bench, he's the real deal.

Jordan has just been playing great. So much is asked of true PGs to run their butts everywhere, create for others, score and in his case, often create his own shot or score at the rim. Blake gets those occasionally when doesn't require elevation. But BOTH of these guys are just balling right now. And although undoubtedly Farmar would like to start or have more minutes than he's getting, they both seem to genuinely like each other and get pumped when the other does something great. Blake's passing and especially the off the dribble bouncies has been outstanding. Both their handles have been great but Blake seems again even a bit better in that regard IMO.

I keep forgetting to ask…..does anyone here know the story behind Jordan's tattoo on his arm? It's the taller kid and a younger, shorter kid together with arms on each other, with a basketball and says if I'm recalling correctl, "Just We Two".

Aside from loving what Farmar brings to the team on the court, in the locker room, and to the city of LA, it feels as though he was destined to be a part of this franchise and I would have zero surprise to see him as a coach or in our front office one day.

The chemistry is unreal and something I've never really seen as a Laker fan except for (maybe) the 2009/2010. Farmar is a huge part of this...

Farmar is straight balling! Blake is straight balling. I just do not see where Nash could even fit on this team any more. The PG spot is happening right now. I don't want to see Blake relegated to SG. I do hate the two PG lineup, again for the record. These guys need to just play where they are best, PG.

He got the tattoo in memory of her. His mom told him when he was young to always take care of her. In order to fulfill her wish and to always remember his sister, he got the tattoo.... She was his life and motivation to get to where he is right now... Googled the story behind his tattoo.

Man Jordy was fun to watch last night. Love his attitude and like someone else said above, it's like he's destined to be a Laker. He appears to absolutely love wearing the P&G, which as a fan is nice to see.

These So Cal boys Jordy and Nick have to have homies hanging out on CL. It's got to be great to read fans are digging you. Comes with the pressure too, to not suck. Make us proud guys, make the Lakers want to keep you around. Learn from the Mamba on a mission when he comes back. All these guys will get better. Like the guys that played with Kobe in his first Olympics when they saw what it really took for greatness and winning focus. The work and preparation he put in behind the scenes.

He's no star or anything but as long as we have Farmar & a guy to split minutes with him & play at the level Blake has been I think we're set at PG.. Atleast for the remainder of Kobe's career.

i want to keep farmar. our bench was devastating during the title run because he leads them. Now after returning, the bench is the most productive in the nba. no coincidence.
