    No excuses at all.

    We got outplayed plain and simple. Pau's been a pussy ever since he called out KG to the media. Tonight he was a disaster. The whole team was, with the exception of Kobe, and during his awesome scoring spree, we either couldn't get stops, or got a stop and couldn't rebound.

    3-2 Boston with the series headed back to LA. 2 more in LA (hopefully), let's see if these guys have some pride, it's gonna suck losing to the Celtics, and it's gonna suck even more losing to them AT STAPLES.

    I'm disgusted by this team, but haven't lost hope.

    The only reason why the Celtics aren't celebrating right now is because of Derek Fisher.

    I am disgusted beyond belief, and honestly, I don't feel like watching Game 6. If Lakers can get their shit together and make it out to Game 7, then I'll watch, otherwise at the moment, I'm way too fucking sick of this shit. I'm mad that we lost. But I'm fucking sick to my stomach at how we lost it. We were playing like it was a Pre-Season game. Pau Gasol was making me want to punch myself in the face. No one wants a ring on the Lakers roster besides Kobe and Andrew. Absolutely no one else. No fucking heart whatsoever.

    Celtics want another championship and I wouldn't be the least surprised if they got it on Tuesday.

    May God help the Lakers have any life in this series and until Game 7, if there is one, I'm done with this shit.

    Give credit to Celtics defense though, they're killing everyone and allowing Kobe to dominate but this is not Oklahoma City they're playing, you need team play to beat the C's.

    I'm at a loss for words at how bad Gasol, Artest and the Laker bench have played, Kobe should fucking spit on their faces in the locker room and on the plane ride home. Bynum might have heart for trying to play but he wasn't effective, maybe it's better to call it a season and just do the damn surgery and get better for 2010/11. (he's just hurting the team right now)

    And back to C's what the fuck has happened to Ray? Breaking the 3pt record and then basically not showing up for 3 games in a row, he's doing decent job on defense but he's gotta make some threes for us to win next game. I'll go ahead and say he'll need to make at least 4 for us to have a chance of closing it out. It'll be all team effort from every single guy, but especially starters, they need to go at 200%, this might be their last chance at the title as a group, windows not closed yet but you know LA will be contending another 2 to 3 years, then you have the LeBron saga, on and on.




    cannot wait for Tuesday night, its do or die for Lakers now. Good luck everyone and hopefully everything goes on our side to our 18th championship. :)

    GO GREEN!!

    He only took 12 shots, and made 5. He needs to demand the ball more especially in the 4th.

    Pau didn't call KG out. The media took a quote, cut it up, and ran with it.

    Very tough loss. I do'nt know what to expect in game 6. We've seen Kobe and the Lakers roll over to Boston before in a game 6, but that was on the road. I hope we come out and win because if we can get a game 7, I'll be happy.

    It's painfully obvious that Drew can no longer be effective with the swelling...he can't jump. He came out looking good, but it quickly went down hill. Valiant effort and hopefully karma treats him right and takes care of his health next season. I don't think he is going anywhere this off-season.

    Artest--it all fell apart for him tonight. Up until tonight, his defense was solid. It wasn't bad, but not good either. Pierce was on fire and hit everything he could throw up. Artest looked a little more confident on offense and hit a few threes. Hopefully he can build off that next game. He put a nice, hard foul on KG too.

    Odom tried showing up, but still looked horrible on defense. He blew a few rotations that killed momentum we were trying to build.

    Game 6--do or die. All year long we've come back from adversity and we seem to play damn good with our backs completely against the wall. Kobe, Fish, and Pau had a captains meeting after the team and coaches dispersed tonight. I expect Gasol to come out aggressive. He got more aggressive in the 4th quarter, but it was too late. He needs to be aggressive from the start. STAPLES needs to be rocking! Let's do this shit baby. Let's go from down 3-2 to winning it all baby!

    And my new avatar rocks. It is 100% truth.

    Re: NBA Finals: Boston Celtics vs. LA Lakers (Bos leads 3-2)

    I'm in loss of words. I have a serious feeling that only Drew, Kobe and Fisher want a new ring, as for others I don't know. And I'm not saying this because they've been awful for one game, Pau started out strong in game 1 and then everything fell apart. Artest hasn't done what he should do, Odom tried to be aggressive but it didn't work out for him. Being 3-2 down despite having HCA is still EXTREMELY hard.


    I just can't do anything but feel bad for Kobe, he doesen't deserve this. Neither does Andrew

    LA should win game six. Only Boston has beat them at home once the entire playoffs.

    Game seven is anyones game, but they need to take it one game at a time.

    I expect a big game from Odom, and pass the ball to Drew please!

    Andrew is playing through an injury, what would you expect from him? We are very lucky to even have him on the court. Fisher is Fisher, we don't need him to score to win, he's on the team for other reasons, of course it would be great if he knocked down some 3 pointers but right now the problem is not him.

    Andrew Bynum 0 defensive rebounds in 31 minutes.
    Lakers shot 65.4% from the free throw line. We make our FTs we win this game.

    Pau Gasol needs to stop settling for those mid-range jumpers and finish stronger around the rim. Going up with one hand and shying away from contact is weak and you won't get the calls.

    Lamar Odom has been lousy, but this is just a bad matchup for him. He doesn't really have anyone to matchup with in this series and he can't take advantage of his strengths. He checked out mentally from this series after the foul troubles he had in the first two games.

    “I’ve got to find ways to get better looks throughout the game, and then when I do just be assertive and be aggressive and don’t be hesitant when I get the ball,” Gasol said. “Just attack.”

    Just words unless you do it Pau.

    Kobe tweaked his ankle last night and I'm not sure how Bynum's knee is going to feel after a 6 hour plane flight.

    I might be going to the game tonight. Contemplating whether I want to deal with the traffic or not.

    Just like I did on the day of Game 1, I just realized that I am wearing a green shirt......... At first I almost threw up........ But this could be a good sign.
