    if GSW leads the West, Lakers should not be 4,5 or 8 to not have them till the WCF.

      But better to get a couple of playoff series in the books before meeting the man.

          Yeah, try and have the coaching staff tell this to the players.
          How do you think Rondo and LeBron would react???

      That was interesting! You can see how TMac wished that it had really come about. He would have been up there with 3 championships, maybe more, if he stayed on with Kobe.

    LBJ got that Cavs team to the Finals. Lost to GSW. This Lakers team is much better than those Cavs. If the Lakers manage to avoid GS in the Western Playoffs (ahem.. GS lose to Rox) who’s to say the Lakers won’t win the West?

    Hey LT,

    In case you forgot I mentioned a while back (well, years ago) this is probably the best off season Laker blog site. Lively bunch of fanatics with diverse and intense yet respectful (most of the time anyway) points of view. Keep it up.

            My brother in law has this patented prank he plays on everybody. He tells friends that they should see the painting Origin of the World. To just ask the staff where it is as its in a special room. Being an unsuspecting smuck I did as he advised. The staff just kept giving me this strange look and just ignore me. Still being an innocent I just assumed they don’t speak English.

            Onward I went looking for this not to be missed painting asking anybody I thought could give me a clue. All reacting the same way. I finally found it tucked away in some room and started scandalously howling with laughter.

            It was a painting of a naked woman.

            Now the looks I got started making sense. lol.

              Haha. That’s a good one. Haven’t been to Europe for years. Going to have to put that on my bucket list.

              I remember now you mentioning the Origin of the World and just looked it up online. For some reason, when you mentioned that way back when, I somehow associated it with the map of Paris or the world that you could walk on. Do you remember that?

              yup, remembered that. kept waiting for you to go there and hear your reaction. I can just hear you go “he got me. that smuck got me.” lol

            • LakerTom (Publisher) 7:29 PM on July 26, 2018 Permalink

              Well, you got me. I googled it and looked at the painting, which is a voyeuristic portrayal of a nude woman lying down that is almost photographic and thus a little pornographic. You could interpret the Origin of the World several ways, Eve or Lust. :-)

            Hey lads, Indeed the Origin of the World is an old prank but still very effective. And to complete le tour, a stop on Louvre to see the Sleeping Hermaphroditos. The fun part is hanging out in the room and see people’s reactions

            • LakerTom (Publisher) 10:39 AM on July 27, 2018 Permalink

              Hey, Phil, thanks for chiming in. Sleeping hermaphrodite. Who woulda known. And yes, you did make me google it. Personally, I appreciate that view better than the one from the Origin of the World. LOL.

    What if Javale McGee is the starting C and he gets 2 more rings with the Lakers, the same number of rings Shaq has? Can you just imagine the jokes flying out of the shelves.

    Talk about poetic justice.

    Svi plays more like Manu than Klay.

      Nice observation. He’s more comfortable with the ball than Klay and he has that nice little step back like Ginobili. Now, if he can only learn the karate chop across the forearm move on defense than Manu mastered ..

    After comparing Playoff Rondo to Big Game James you think Magic won’t be hinting who plays on crunch time to Luke?

    There’s an unfilled 15th slot and 5.6m, who could they be eyeing to fill that?

    You think LBJ came to the Lakers to play small ball Center? Seriously?

    Can you imagine Rondo driving and lobbing to McGee? McGee would look like a taller Clint Capela.

    The second unit might be the best the team has ever had. If things hold that would be Wagner, Kuzma, Hart, Stephenson and Rondo. Dang, where does Svi fit in?

      I think they are waiting to see if any acorns fall off some trees. For example, the Nets just acquired Kenneth Faried. If he is bought out, perfect solution. If nothing falls, they can always re-sign Channing Frye. Nothing wrong with that either. Or there’s still something cooking behind the scenes that we’re unaware of.

    Lakers now have got to have the highest BBIQ team in the league: LBJ, Rondo, Lonzo, Moe Wagner and Coach Walton.

    Always loved the old Al Davis’ Oakland Raiders. Seems Magic is a fan too. This bunch is just as quirky.
