        I figured that…I wonder if it’ll be a lecture or a fine to the team….probably a lecture…reflect back to the “Malice in the Palace” in 2004, yup I know that was a grander scale, but remember BI had has his neck grabbed and Monroe probably let it go cuz he knew he coulda snapped the sub 200 lb’er’s neck with ease…I just watched a video of it, and that was a wild situation with fans running onto the court after the cup was thrown at Artest/MWP provoked players going into the stands…, but knowing that Mike Brown and Elden Campbell were there gives me a sense of peace, LOL…..https://

        Just what do you mean by “Mr Chunky”? Is that a reference to his physique or his “chocolate” appearance?

        I only inquire because of your recent reference to attending “Klan” meetings.

    If Calderon is still slowed by injury he may be inactive at times, or he and Huertas may rotate the inactive spot depending on the individual opponents/opposition, I don’t know the rules about that. So Metta, Zubac or the now resurrected Thomas Robinson can be on the active 12 man roster.

      Well, that’s partially accurate. Ahab and the whale had tangled prior to Ishmael’s tale beginning. So it’s also a revenge story as well as cautionary tale about sublimating all other aspects of your personality in order to keep the spark of rage and anger alive within. Takes a lot, as Ahab shows us. Such a great book. I remember I tackled it at 12 and again at 22 (a common practice for me, I think it’s where I got my epic vocabulary and propensity to blather on…like this moment here ;)

      Also, I’m pretty sure Ahab went into it all thinking he’d come out on top, very Mamba-esque attitude, honestly.

        I carry a small hardcover of it at work, and just open and read randomly, I’ve read it probably over 10 times, my AP English teacher would always be at ends with me whenever we were instructed to write a paper to “compare and contrast” two novels, and irregardless, I would always bring “Moby Dick” in, even if she assigned two specific novels. She had us check out over 70 books/novels from the school book place (not the library and I am too old to recall what it was/is called)…actually I’m sure they never use books that are made of bound paper anymore…I had to ask many friends to borrow locker space as I rarely took one home. I passed the class and my AP exam. I was even comparing and contrasting Star Trek and “Moby Dick” before others were, (“Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan”, “Star Trek: First Contact”, and before I ever started to listen to Laurie Anderson in the mid 80’s…..and I do not follow proper grammar, or punctuation intentionally…just to be radical, I suppose…..however, I do still read “The Elements of Style” and recommend the BOOK, regularly……………..

    Any word on the Lakers seeking salary room for the Nash and Randle injuries?…does the league move that slow, on Nash, they should be near a decision by now…and Randle’s case should just mirror that. How about more salary room for the 25% of room left by the Laker players who aren’t into it mentally?

    • mclyne32 (Director) 1:43 PM on October 31, 2014 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      This is from Eric Picnus:

      “If granted by the NBA, the Lakers would gain an exception for half of Nash’s $9.7-million salary.

      The exception would enable the team to add a single player by March 10, either by signing a free agent ($4.85-million maximum), via trade ($4.95-million maximum incoming salary) or waiver claim ($4.85-million maximum salary).

      Any player the Lakers might acquire with a disabled player exception must have a one-year deal. The exception would also expire if it remains unused and the Lakers trade Nash to another franchise.

      Kupchak said he doesn’t expect the league to grant the exception for at least a couple of weeks.”

      Did anyone hear MDA’s interview Friday on ESPNLA 710? He said he feels the need to stay positive and not get down on players during this bad stretch; he doesn’t want to destroy whatever confidence they might have in themselves. That’s understandable. It’s a very fine line he has to walk. Of course he has to keep the locker room together and appease the FO too. But without using (sufficient) discipline/criticism in coaching, he’s allowed the team to fall into some bad habits that are making things worse than they ought to be. He needs to employ some “tough love” and start holding people accountable for mistakes.

        God help us if the team loses what little confidence they still have. The point margin of the blowout losses would increase by 10 pts. The Clippers and Celtics would stop laughing at and start pitying the Lakers. Oh wait, they already do.

      Sterling always wanted to be in “Tinsel Town”, not the swamp of the San Diego Sorts Arena, and this is with fresh paint and they have colored lighting on it at night, previously look like a cemetery mausoleum …. San Diego is the 8th most populous city in the United States, Seattle…I believe 12th, Oklahoma City is 30th…tell me…is there something “really wrong going on here?”…. I say the Lakers should honor Gary Payton and hang his Seattle Jersey temporarily, until it has its proper place in Seattle to go to..

        It’s about Free Market Principles and in Stern’s Case, “A Hard Press” Publicly funded Arena campaigns.

        Markets that provide the NBA to profit from them will be welcomed, others that cannot don’t and leave.

        Sacramento’s Arco Arena/Sleep Train, whatever. The current configuration seats up to 17,317. Barclays is 17,732, and New Orleans 17,188.

        Brooklyn is prosperous and the arena is really cool, concerts, ex cetera, allow it to thrive.

        New Orleans and Sacramento??

        I like Benson trying to keep the Pelicans in New Orleans.

        The seats rest on uncovered plywood. The concourses are too narrow to accommodate the crowds. And, Joe Maloof pointed out, “We get roof leaks all the time.”

        “Our problem,” Cohn said, “is we don’t have the level of corporate sponsorship you have in the Bay Area.”

        The Quick Energy Choco-Carb Arena does not seem viable to me.

        Yes, Sterling wants to be in Tinsel Town especially now when Lakers are run by Buss children. Do you think you can drive away Don Sterling out of LA? You have to uproot all his properties here from Long Beach, Westwood, Korea Town and Century City. Those are the real Clippers. The team exists because of those properties, it is never intention to win for Championship but promote Sterling Group of Companies and sell more units. That’s the motivation and passion, well with the real estate in rebound in California, Clippers situation is a win-win year, we all thought that they’d have a sorrowful summer but NO, Sterling would continue tanking high priced players and go for cheapy route.

        I say, this is the right time to court on CP3 to come to the Laker side. Don’t “over analyze” that he will be a Clipper forever. There is no such thing in their tradition. Clippers always end their basketball in April, well a little improvement it lasted May 3rd. Get him now, sell the Laker brand in post Kobe. The route to Dwight’s re-signing is if he’s convinced that FO wanted to win or continue with an insane Coach, not literally but on his 7-sec coaching and complete reliance on Steve Nash’s back and hamstring. :merdhtf:

        • humanomaly 8:32 AM on May 4, 2013 Permalink | Log in to Reply

          EdwinG, I absolutely knew that Donald Sterling probably never went East of Figueroa…hey, I lived in the condos at Century Park East in the late 70’s, early 80’s…..also at Century Hill Complex was “party central”, 3 units converted into one making over 11K sq ft….and it snowed year round….Despite all your valid points which I know by heart, (oh the Wilshire Corridor casts a shadow like a tropical rain forest)…does that make it “right”?…Financially to Sterling and other league owners who profit from Clipper-Insania it is profitable…even if a loss, perhaps a tax wiggle on his filings….and the time the Clippers spent in the LA Sports Arena, (great I can probably take a rail there eventually and get mugged going to or from), The Arrowhead Pond was somewhat close to a state of the art arena at the time…East LA County, Orange County Riverside and San Bernadino county would have provided a huge population base, I believe to provide a fan base large enough to bring near sellout crowds, (note: 2 tiers of luxury suites at the beginning), but Donald Sterling is just too set in that seat in the front row where he can be seen…would he take a helicopter to home Clipper games at the Pond (now the The Honda Center)…no, because he’s the “King of LA”….Sterling really showed his class with the way he handled Elgin Baylor….Laker Fans should have revolted, Clipper fans even more…Lakers should have hired him as an assistant to the West, as Sterling was paying him harvest rate anyway…..

            “Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!”

            Sterling ain’t goin’ anywhere…but he MIGHT blow up the team if CP3 re-signs. I could see him thinking that Blake and CP3 will draw the crowds…why pay more? CP3 is going to have to look long and hard about that. The Lakers may have been snake-bit this year, but they SPENT money to try and get a winner. (Not that we can find a financial way to GET CP3, just giving as an example.) Sterling will NEVER do that! Evah. Oh, it may look okay for a season, maybe two, but I just don’t see him high payrolling for long. I’m sure CP3 knows/thinks this. But a lot may depend on the new coach, too.

              I think a clear indication will be how Sterling handles the coaching situation this summer. If they keep Vinny on the cheap or hire another low paid coach, then you know nothings changed. But if they spend the money to bring in a good established coach to handle this roster, then it could be a sign of change.

              Sterling didn’t get involved with the Clippers to win titles…he did it to make money and the team has never lost money with him. But with the new CBA, the difference between the salary “cap” and the salary “floor” is only $10mill…so he can’t really gut the team like he has in the past. Might make more financial sense for him to put a winner on the court since he’s forced to spend the money anyway.

            Yes Humanomaly, Don Sterling is not a Marketing man when it comes to basketball but a lawyer par excellence trying to dominate the courtroom (Staples) and make a case to his Hollywood fans (treated as his jury). A good lawyer wants to position his client to win a case, to reduce the burden by systematically reversing trends on the betrothals and crime done. He wants to be in the center rather than in the suburban. Arrowhead Pond is not too far from LA and it’s the best place for Clippers together with the Ducks. It covers the Orange Country, SanBerdo-Riverside-Corona corridor and extend it to the San Diego. Sterling insists on Staple near his properties and law office. From its origin, San Diego Clippers was a great location in creating a solid fan base and identity, yet to Sterling it was too laid back, too military oriented too far from his Group of Companies. Well, in real estate, there is a saying, “location, location, location.” :ride:

      True to its tradition, Clippers are the team in July not in May-June, it is fitting and proper Don Sterling would go down in memory books as the owner who is a winner in real estate but a perennial loser in basketball. No matter what circumstances are, got the best players, beat their hometown rivals but couldn’t advance on 1st round, they’re always beaten in Clipper fashion. So to fellow Angelenos, you won’t find your luck with the Clippers, go back to the basic Lakers.

      But then, where are the Lakers heading? they have the best coach, best solution-oriented mind in their midst and would not grab him. It takes Detroit or Toronto to tap his ingenuity but the Laker FO are just sitting on their arze, waiting for change of mind of pooh-pooh fans on Dantoni. They are making a hard sell that a 4M Coach would turn around the $ 100M+ enterprise with his 7 sec blitz basketball. Unfortunately, his players are composed of old veterans who are more attuned chasing the sunset in Santa Monica than to play ball in Venice Beach. It is time to put sanity in the FO and make the decisions now. What are you waiting Mr. Jim Buss, Mitch, Jeanie? In honor of Dr. Jerry Buss, time to roll on the sleeves and start working in May than dilly dallying and taking on vacation. :kumbaya:

          There are devices that use water to filter the combusted material through, I designed and built a few back then, makes for a more efficient utilization of all combusted materials…..other methods, for moving the chemical substance into the human circulatory system: incorporating into cookies, or brownies or other foods….funniest incident in my life, was a dinner with my family at “Musso & Frank’s Grill” on Hollywood Blvd (circa late 70’s)…she was a chemically dependent person, and consumed a methaqualone (Quaalude, Sopor)….both since pulled off the market)…I kept nudging her during the dinner to keep her alert, focused and alert….I was only on the contents of “ZiGZAG”…lost focus of her for a minute, turned and found she had passed out and her face was planted into her dinner plate…yes, my family was shocked…”I told them that she had been up studying excessively the last few nights, and tired from work”….not the truth, that she was a 364.24/24/7 straight A with a triple major in Public (Pubic?) Administration, French and Japanese…I broke up with her as she was having doubts about my aspirations and future, especially every single night, as she passed me one of the “doobie” brothers….at that point I realized, “I need to get out of here!!!”, that was 34 years ago, and for someone who regularly lectured me about “fidelity”, she asks me to “change her oil” regularly….despite the fact that the person who she did marry, a physician, and have the perfect marriage, so when I am in the middle of “changing her oil” (well, one of the sessions)…I ask her about those “fidelity” lectures I received decades ago…..

          Don’t smoke in the wilderness, that’s why they make houses….and don’t smoke in bed, and don’t smoke til the point you lose track of what’s going on, or have a “designated non-smoker”…..

          MongoSlade, I believe there may be some truth in that, but I believe there is greater truth in a statement of that is “how idiot folks die in fires”….growing it, under heat lamps, is probably more the danger, however police technology and electric company scrutinizing electric bills (unless they use propane tanks to power the lights, another hazard)…”die in fire”….I would think that issue is much more prevalent when people used to take basic Sudafed decongestant tabs and cook it into meth, once had a guy come up to me and ask me for 20 boxes of 100 each of sedated, fed me a bs story about he was a “camp counselor”, I asked him if it was “Camp Iwannaahai”…..kicked his a*s out and called the cops. They pulled basic sudafed off the market and just put it back on (reformulated replacing pseudoephedrine with phenylephrine and callling it Sudafed PE (which I highly object to…the phenylephrine can not be cooked into “ice” (wheres’s Tone Loc when I need him???)….this funky naming of medications can cause problems….here’s an example, “Arthritis Strength Tylenol”, may be still on the market, probably not, walk into a drug store and you will see an entire bank of drugs with various formulations of “Tylenol/McNeil” products…this one I will focus on….I recall off the top of my head, that the dosing of it required 8 grams of Tylenol per day, (Tylenol is the brand name for “acetaminophen”, also referred to as “APAP”….The maximum recommended, unless you’re liver failed first, dose at the time was 10 grams per day. Say a typical arthritis patient also is on say, Vicodin, which at the time at anywhere from 500 mg to 750 mg per tablet, they have since lowered it to 300 mg per tablet in the last quarter or so….why??? Patient safety???? No lesser chance of getting sued for destroying livers.So Tylenol Arthritis strength formula put a patient right at the edge of dancing with liver damage….nice, eh???? Drug companies are
          evil, Take another story, DO IT!!! Years ago there was a drug called Lorcet 10/650 (10mg Hydrocodoene/650 mg APAO)…Soon after Vicodin-HP (10/660) was approved by the FDA and distributed….look they were at a max dose of hydrocodone for one tablet already, and some frickin knucklehead said, “hey, we can avoid patent laws and formulary rules by distributing the same thing with 10 mg more of APAP, tylenol, in it”…..WHAT A DUMBFR***K move to be allowed. I sat and pondered, holding the bottle, thinking is this what pharmacy is all about….does this guy go home, open the door and shout “honey, you would be so proud of me and what I did today!!!!!”….So it was decades ago that I realized it was all about business, and I should have gone to law school after pharm school……

      Smoke to your heart’s content and if one of your cells hit the unlucky break, I will pray over your tombstone. My blog friends are plain stubborn Lord!

      Rest assured, I will not forget the :rose:

        Edwin, I no longer smoke, as I have other means to achieve better detachment from reality, or improved and altered interpretations of reality….and IMHO, reality is overrated. I believe one must think outside of the “box” (reality) to possibly come upon some really wonderful thoughts, ideas, views, etc. Yes, at times, the result is often useless and detrimental as in “a waste of time”….I have found that controlled usage, by those capable of it, should not be condemned.
