Welcome to the Lake Show...

TMS is too awesome to not have Lakers thread! Here we can discuss all things Lakers related throughout the season. I'm one of the biggest Lakers fans on here, with Gary (2k7gtcs) being a close 2nd. He'll say he's a Spurs fan but I haven't let that fool me yet!


Pre-season notables:
Likes:
-This team has AMAZING potential w/ 4 hall of famers in the starting lineup. Their skillsets are complimentary so it shouldn't take very long to gel as a unit.
-Good attitudes on the team which should serve well for building that chemistry
-Princeton offense will make them tougher to predict if they can continue to improve

Dislikes:
-Heath. Has not been on the Lakers' side at this early juncture in the year
-Bench scoring/defense has still been troublesome. At the moment it appears the bench lacks a leader who is capable of creating offense. Jamison is expected to fill that role. If he is going to do it properly, look for him to become more agressive.
-Rotations. To maximize the play of the bench, and keep the starters fresh for the playoffs, it will be vital for Coach Brown to have well structured rotations with well defined roles.

I'll try to do a "notables" after each game

I could have named 2 or maybe 3 of those.

Metta World Peace? For Pete's sake. Shoot me! I hate that guy and his name is worse than his personality. If he went to the Spurs I'd root for the Rockets.

We stole their first Hockey team.

And Nathan would love the Vikings to leave. Less traffic and crazy fans.

Nathan doesn't care. I brought it up once and he said he wished they would go.

A college kid in Minnesota who doesn't like the Vikings? Nathan is a cyborg.

And Joe I saw in the other thread you had Rancho Chevrons near you. Do you live near Rancho? I do too!
