Ahh to be a Lakers Fan

The Los Angeles Lakers have been on quite the journey these past few weeks.  Wait, what the hell am I saying?  The Lakers haven’t been on any journey.  They haven’t even been invited to the journey.  Forget it Bilbo, this is Laker Town.

The Lakers are not the Lakers anymore.  And it’s time to just come to accept their ill-fated existence.

Did it all start with the death of Jerry Buss? When Buss died in Feb 2013, an aura of invincibility died with him, and the family’s ensuing efforts to imitate his giant footsteps, instead of forging their own path in basketball’s new era, have resulted only in embarrassment and defeat.

Or is it all Kobe’s fault?  Kobe Bryant has always been that guy for the Lakers. But now, the tides have turned and they have turned to the absolute worst if we are starting to blame our once beloved player.  Can’t blame a guy for experiencing the inevitable.

Being a Laker fan is tough these days. But a true fan will accept reality and roll with the punches. So what comes with acceptance, comes remorse.  Depressing as f*ck remorse and, at times, outrage.

The Charmin Show

Kobe Bryant is riding high off his recent career milestone, breaking Michael Jordan’s all time scoring record of 32,292 points.  That’s pretty sweet Kobe.  Would be even sweeter if you could break that other pesky MJ record of 6 rings.  Oh wait, that’s impossible.

Watching Kobe break an MJ record is great, superb, amazing yet depressing at the same time.  All that hard work may seem to be paying off but in the grand scheme of things but it’s not.  Why isn’t it?  Well, just ask Kobe.  How does Kobe define success?  Championships.  Duh.

Kobe will truly feel accomplished after he wins his sixth championship.  Don’t hold your breath Black Mamba.

Kobe breaking this monumental record merely highlighted all of the daunting flaws and dismal talent the rest of the Lakers squad sadly embody.  Great, thanks for the spotlight Kobe.  This is just what the Lakers need instead of actually winning games.  Hell, we might as well drop the Lakers and just call them Kobe.  “Hey Steve, who are Spurs playing tonight?”  “Oh they are playing Kobe.”  Perfect.

No wonder Kobe is screaming to Mitch comparing the Lakers to Charmin Toilet Paper.  Who likes Charmin anyways?  Angel Soft Baby.

Anybody would be frustrated if they were Kobe.  Since he was first drafted in the NBA in 1996, he has been working hard every single day of his life, hard enough to get to where he is today.  A place in his much decorated life that will be celebrated more than Lebron leaving a penny in a “Take a Penny, Leave a Penny” tray at a local 7eleven.  Thanks ESPN.

That’s all well and good for fans all around the world, but that’s not good enough for Kobe.  All of that hard work won’t be worth anything unless Kobe deems it worthy.  Which at the moment, he doesn’t.

Dammit Mitch, do something!  Do something before it is too late!!

Don’t get up too fast now…..

Is the Lake Show dunzo?

Well Well Well looks like the Lake Show may not be dunzo after all?  Steve Nash is a pretty nice addition to this ailing Los Angeles team.  But is he the ultimate solution?

As much as a I love the alien look a like Steve Nash and all his point guard slick nasty moves, he is still NOT the solution for the Lake Show.  The Lakers are in far much more trouble than they want to lead on.  The problems are still there and from the looks of it, will be there for a while.

The Lakers have no bench.  No, seriously.  Nothing.  If you watched any of the Laker Western Conference Final games at all, you know exactly what I am talking about.  The Lakers have no money.  With all the dinero they had left I guess we can assume it went to Mr. Nash.  Paul Gasol, sad to say, must go.  He is the only somewhat “valuable” player we could trade to get someone valuable in return.  Besides, we would rather not pay out the rest of his contract to give those Laker Girls some shake weights for X-mas.

Good GOD do I wish we could trade Bynum for the ridiculously huge center Dwight Howard.  But, it sounds like Dwight only wants to suit up in Brooklyn or bust.  Bynum is a bitch.  Plain and simple.  He is like the anger spoiled teenager who acts out when he doesn’t get to go out past curfew.  Who wants that in the NBA?  Bynum, be grateful that you are playing for one of the best championship caliber teams and playing alongside one of the greatest players to ever hit the court…..but you won’t…..because you an anger lil bitch.  Grow up.  Where is Derek Fisher when you need him?  Talk some Papa Bear sense into his Big head.

 

 

 

The one player we all were hoping and praying would return to the Lake Show, Lamar Odom, went to the next best LA team, the Clippers.  I don’t know about you but I think Lam Lam is going to destroy with the Clippers.  Even though he is coming off his worst season, everyone believes that he is confident in returning to LA and playing his absolute best……bringing that purple and gold champ style to the Clipper court.  He was sixth man of the year when the Lakers decided to trade him.  I can’t wait to see Mitch Kupchack and Jim Buss pulling out their eye lashes this coming season…..

Will the Lake Show be served?    Maybe by Ray Allen and the championship Heat team……or quite possibly Jeremy Lin and the Rockets?  I think the Lake show can stomach to lose to those teams but losing their city to their own neighborhood rivals? Now that calls for some serious upchucking.
