    Just a terrible, infuriating & ultimately depressing game to watch. Only 16 team assists for the Lakers, and after Kobe's 27, the only other player in double figures was Jamison, who barely notched that (11 points). Not a sound formula for sustained success, and if Kobe keeps pushing Dwight (context: http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/...wight-howard-return-shoulder-injury-play-pain , http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/...kers-tired-people-questioning-shoulder-injury ), that may just push him out of town during the summer. Pierce, Garnett, Green, Terry & Courtney Lee all impressed for Boston tonight, and though they're still between the 7th-8th seed right now in the East, at least it's a solid positioning for the playoffs, a place the Lakers would love to be at. For slight comic relief during the game, this happened... :

    Liking the Red Sox and the L*kers are not mutually exclusive. Different sports, ya know.

    If he didn't loose a bet, he probably jumped on the bandwagons at some point.

    Odd cases do exist. I'm a Steelers fan from Cleveland (but, with a good reason_. But, most of the time, those are sorry bandwagon fans.

    I would like to thank the Memphis Grizzlies for giving the Cavaliers Mo Speights for absolutely nothing of consequence. That was very nice of you.

    And while we're on the subject of liking weird teams, I'm a fan of both the 49ers and the Seahawks, and they're in the same division!

    i used to root for both of those teams too when i moved to the northwest, but that was when the seahawks were still in the afc. after the realignment there was no way i could still pull for both so i gradually started hating the seahawks.

    My only truly bizarre sports contradiction is that being a Flyers fan conflicts with my firm belief that, if a person is a fan of the sport in general, that they ought to like one of the original 6 teams. And, mine has always been Boston.

    Thank you Cleveland Cavaliers... thank you for having such a championship level team, overflowing with talent, that you could so generously give us Jeremy Pargo for absolutely nothing.

    With all of our injuries, he came in and played like a champ.

    Well, the nicest thing I can say about the Lakers losing in Miami (and the run LeBron is on right now? Good grief, what incredible basketball... 71.4% from the field, while averaging slightly over 30 points per game (over 6 games)? Can deny the greatness of that, sorry) yesterday was that they at least played a competitive game/didn't fully embarrass themselves. Obviously a loss is a loss, but it's better to stomach an effort like yesterday than what transpired in Boston on Thursday night. The trip would have been a disaster if not for the comeback in Charlotte on Friday (Lakers down by 20 at one point in the 2nd half, Kobe scored 14 in the 4th to lead them to victory)... of course, having to comeback against the worst team in the league is a sad statement all in itself. Regardless, I'll take the 4-3 record on this Grammy trip, and hope this team can win their next 2 games (at home against Phoenix & the Clippers) before the All Star break, particularly the game against the Clippers... not that its just a game against the Clippers, but one of my dear friends (and fellow Laker fan) has his birthday that day, so the Lakers have to win for him. :p

    Ehhhhh, no. The short sleeve look just doesn't look good... Golden State already has the best looking set of uni's in the league... why tinker with that look?[/color[

    I disagree. I really like the look of those Golden State unis. Very nice.

    Also very nice Boston-Denver game last night. Nice to hear the locals a) care about NBA and b) (more importantly) curse Boston

    What will be especially annoying (it was a topic on ATH today) will be the talk of the Celtics "back in contention" if they continue to play this well. And what's good about a short sleeve look for a NBA uni? Reeks of something a college team would do. :p

    As a fat white guy, I have a hard time wearing replica NBA jerseys because in no way can I pull off a tank top. At least a t-shirt jersey gives me some shot at it. That's what's good about it. Plus, it looks sweet.

    What ruins the jersey is the sleeve... the actual logo/colors used? Good stuff.

    Kobe not taking a shot in the 1st half, and only ending up with 1 field goal in the whole game? In a win, why not, especially with 5 Lakers scoring in double figures. And the Suns ought to bring back those 90's uni's on a permanent basis... I think they look great.

    A terrible feeling to see the kind of season the Clippers are having, one the Lakers thought they would have this year.

    My brother is in particular taking joy in this, for Turkoglu has always been one of his most despised players ever in the association.

    Not a surprise at all, probably for the best.

    One last thing about the Laker game Tuesday night: Will Ferrell was there, dressed up at a redcoated Staples Center usher, and at one point...

    The purple & gold made this game for about 15 minutes or so between the end of the 1st quarter to half time, but that other L.A. pro basketball team simply (obviously) ran their offense more efficiently (with Kobe's 11 assists going for naught). Despite tonight*, the Lakers are in a better position to make a playoff run than they were 3 weeks, so that's some positivity to hold onto here at the All Star break.



    *History was made this evening, as the other pro team here in L.A. ran up their record on this season to 3-0 over the Lakers, the first time in 20 years in which they've won the season series.

    I watched the second half of the LA/LA game. The Clippers prepared for that matchup by using the Eastern Conference as a shooting range last week. They murdered us.
