    Warriors wanted to send a message, said it was just another game…

    Here’s the thing…attacking Korver is brilliant…making him play Defense limits his effectiveness Offensively and he’s the weak link in this matchup…

        Physically, he should be good to go, MS…according to the team doc…

        He’s dealing with a lot of stress…I hope his baby pulls through…who knows if he’d be all in mentally on the court with what’s up…how could any man. Prayers up to the Smith fam from the Lakerholics fam.

      Ty has kinks to work out. Can’t have Korver and Frye on the court Defensively…to much of a mismatch.

      MM, My wife taught Kiddy Garden (t) and I, high school/college. This should be required watching of every teacher before they start. My wife’s principal gave her a written copy to read at her start. This is the kind of teacher she and I strived to be. The Pop kids will always get attention, but teachers should focus on those that don’t! Now the my eyes and nose are running, I want you to know that I might be coming down with a cold!!!!!!!

        I was waiting on that Deej, now I can say, I had one great one and a good one, that was all…I wish I had one like you sir…you care…you care, that’s the line for me, as a student seeing a great educator.

        Please share this story DJ, this is also something I hope can inspire educators around the world.

    Love watching a Coach Izzo team…sound fundamentally on both sides…don’t beat themselves with mistakes either.

      Izzo’s teams are known for strong guard play, toughness and rebounding. Izzo is known for his “war” rebounding drill, in which the players wear football helmets and shoulder pads. His motto is “Players Play – Tough Players Win”.

      His other coaching philosophies include, “he doesn’t determine playing time, players do” and “A player-coached team is better than a coach-coached team.” Izzo is also known for scheduling extremely tough non-conference schedules as preparation for the NCAA tournament. This way the players have already played the top teams in the country and won’t be fazed come March Madness.

    Brandon Ingram showed up to the Lakers’ gym immediately after tonight’s D-Fenders game to work on his game.

    It’s basically 10 p.m. on a Saturday night in Los Angeles. Brandon Ingram is shooting in the Lakers practice facility

      He’s the right guy to lead the team going forward. That shot will just get better as he adapts to NBA physicality. His feel for the game is elite level. The passes Russell forces he finds the right angle for, rebounds exceptionally well, solid defender…what’s not to like? If he’s not starting by the end of the year someone in the starting line up will have had to come on like gang busters.

          Yup. The fact coach K felt strongly enough about him to put him on the Olympic practice squad was just about all I needed to hear. Seeing him in action you can see the skills, just needs to get the body NBA ready which may be another full season.

            Great work ethic. Wish a few others shared it. Hire Kobe as an offensive coordinator.

              that would be great but the payoff likely won’t be worth the trouble to Kobe anymore..as a player, he was on a mission to win and had good reason to put up with guys who couldn’t quite match his drive/intensity ..now ? not so much…

          Had we protected the ball and/or made our free throws, we could have won this game. Again, the bench outscored the starters.

      He took the time to mentor Pau, Julius and LNJr. He worked with Andrew, DFish, and, inserted his imput in huddles and practices. Having vested his 20yrs with the franchise, he is certainly still concerned with the success of the Lakers. Having received that last extension, he knows their appreciation. His relationship with Metta could encourage him to become an assistant coach, as well. It would certainly put the team in a more favorable position to win.

        Well, I am sure Kobe knows he’s appreciated…and getting him on board likely would put us in a better position to win..thing is, much of what you mentioned happened when Kobe was the lynchpin..the position of an assistant coach doesn’t offer the same control or reward in terms of recognition or money…as you often point out, coaches have limited impact..can’t take over the game sitting on the sideline when things are going south..Kobe has said more than once that he doesn’t have the temperament for the job..so, it seems unlikely at this point…

        that said, stranger thinga have happened…post-retirement, I may well have missed something he said that suggested a possible interest in coaching…

        Tru dat, Deone, no arguing those important facts…

        Maybe one day, Kobe will be re-energized and obviously if he wants any position with the Lakers, he can have it I’m sure…

        At this point, we had him mind body soul for 20 years. I can understand why he wants his family and his businesses to occupy most of his time now.

        All those days, months, spent on the road…all the Birthdays, all the Lazy Saturdays, all the bike rides, he missed…Because he needed to sacrifice to be the best….

        They deserve some time with their father. I think you’d agree sir, being a father yourself. :)

    ESPN Stats and Information

    Devin Booker had quite the showing in Mexico City as part of the NBA Global Games. On Thursday, he tied his career high with 39 points in the Suns’ loss to the Mavericks. On Saturday, Booker (whose mother is Mexican-American) again scored 39 — including 26 in the second half — as the Suns rallied after being behind through three quarters to beat the Spurs.

              We’ll see…

              As far as fans go…the fans hoping he’ll turn a corner are the same as the ones preaching patience…neither get paid for their opinions…:) that includes all of us. I know that hurts a few egos In here…sad but true.

              The only opinions that matter are the suits on the sidelines and the two men in the executive box…we’re just going to have to have faith man…hard as a fanatic…Like I told ya DJ, I believe something will turn for us…

            He’s on that Superstar trajectory, Deej…

            Yup, we passed on him, so did 11 other teams…

            Suns lucked out. Never traded up afraid some one would take him…plus, he had to ride the bench for Cal…

            Yet Cal was the one saying this kid should be a Top 5 pick all year.

        Yep..there’s a reason Kronke put up his own money to build in the LA market. It’s very short-sighted to only look at ticket sales in this thing. Two teams in LA will be far more profitable for the league than individual teams in St Louis & SanDiego.
