          I thought the whole tribute to IT was strange and laughable…especially for a franchise like the Celtics

            Laughable in what respect?

            Dude played his heart out, literally. I’m not gonna take that away from or anyone who gives their all.

              NBA4ever 7:36 PM on February 14, 2018 Permalink

              He played his heart out. If that’s the criteria then there are a lot of players in the league that played 2 years for a team that won nothing that should get a tribute video. I’m not taking anything away from him, I realize what he played through physically and mentally. His unsuccessful short stint doesn’t warrant a video tribute. It’s just silly in my opinion and even more ridiculous to plan it on PPs jersey retirement night.

      I actually like Rondo.
      Yeah, he’s a d!ck, but so is Kobe.
      Rondo made that last Championship Celtic team work. He was the orchestrator and a true champion.
      Not too long ago, he almost became a Laker.
      I have respect for players like him.

            Yes, that’s a good way to look at it. Despite Nance’s defense and constant energy, some of us have lamented on his scoring shortcomings. We can use the pick to pick a player who’s more 3 and D. What I’m sad most is to see the great positive energy that he is as a person, now in Cleveland.

              They had to attach Nance and his salary to trade Clarkson and get the first round pick in return. This was an excellent trade by any standard.

              I know it’s an excellent trade, Keen. I’m just sad to see him go. But he’s landed in a good place and for that, I’m happy for him.

    I just love lurking on the Boston Celtics blog when they lose a game to the Lakers. Oh, the angst. But they also have very savvy fans who appreciate the history of the rivalry and recognize that our young team played well last night. Whatever we do, do not trade Randle to the Celtics who really like him as a player.

     
    • LakerTom (Publisher) 12:18 PM on January 24, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      Julius would be great on Celtics but Smart would also be great on Lakers. The reality is both would be better fits on the other’s team. Overall, I thought the Lakers’ young stars looked better than the Celtics’ young players. We won despite free throws and missing Lonzo.

      We keep hearing what a great roster the Celtics have but I think they’re overrated and are falling back to earth. IT was probably a better fit than Kyrie, who can’t do it all alone without LeBron. Kuzma > Tatum, Ingram > Brown. Celtics need Haywood to move to the next level.

          Totally agree, we already have Lonzo. Smart doubles-down on the ‘can do everything but shoot’ skill set we have in both KCP and Ball.

          • LakerTom (Publisher) 12:31 PM on January 24, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

            With his defense, he would be a great backup point guard,
            Backup point guard is important as a 6th man in today’s NBA.
            Lakers need backup point guard more than third power forward.

            But I too would love to keep Randle. He is a unicorn in his own way.

            • LakerTom (Publisher) 12:36 PM on January 24, 2018 Permalink

              The only reason to NOT trade for PG at the deadline would be if you wanted to keep all the kids and just sign PG as your one max contract free agent. Frankly, I could support that option or one where Cousins was the one max contract. Just don’t think Magic and Rob would but maybe we can keep this streak going and change their minds.

              Jamie Sweet (Local Ne'er-Do-Well) 12:36 PM on January 24, 2018 Permalink

              Maybe. I think he’s all in on the Celtics and they seem all in on him. Randle does make sense, for them, he makes a lot sense for us. We already have KCP, Ennis, Caruso and Clarkson. Unless there’s something major going on with that knee I think we have enough guards who can’t shoot. His defense is better than all of theirs, except maybe KCP, but that’s where it ends.

              That is exactly the path I hope the team treads. Swap Cousins for George, though, and roll with Ingram improving.

              Really guys??!!!! The idea of making the Celtics even slightly better through a trade with us repulses me, and to end up with Marcus Smart? Even worse! Not worth it. I’d rather keep Randle.

    This could just be me, but I need to say it. I really feel like this website has lost its focus. I come here everyday to read about Lakers but if not for the Lakerholics logo at the top, I could be at Yahoo website or something.

    There are so many postings about other teams and players I don’t particularly care about. I come here specifically to read about the Lakers, if I wanted sports news in general I’d go to BSPN or Sports Illustrated. I’d rather have a few good articles/analysis about the Lakers than have to scroll through a bunch of mildly interesting things about other teams.

    Then there’s the out of the blue postings like basement farming and others that I don’t see as being related at all to the core focus of this site. No offense to you Sean, I appreciate the effort you put into the site, truly I do. But could we focus more on Lakers related stuff? With so many tangential postings, really good stuff are quickly buried and you miss them because they’ve gone into older postings.

      I have to agree, Seely. Thanks for your post. I guess I’m going to have to delete all non-Lakers posts going forward. I don’t mind an occasional post and I did make one about the Yankees but the Lakers posts were buried with an avalanche of non-Lakers posts.

      Going forward, let’s limit all posts to the Lakers and subjects that invite good discussions. Fewer posts and more comments should be our goal as a community. I will also start limiting the posts I make to one per subject so as to concentrate the comments.

          Brown is making sure A) If Zo has the ball off a def board a man is on him immediately and B) Zo is tentative attacking Embiid. Great player but make them bring a second man on drives.

    Hi everyone,

    Just to let you know my town, Tallahassee, survived Irma without too much damage. We were so worried that Irma was gonna hit us as a Category 1 hurricane. But Irma shifted to the right and we were spared a more devastating hit. My husband and I hunkered down at a friend’s place and their electricity and internet did not go out. My own neighborhood had power outage this morning but power was restored by late afternoon. So we’re back in our home and thankful that the damage was not as bad as first anticipated. Thanks for your prayers and best wishes y’all. Someone up there was listening.

    Bracing for impact as hurricane Irma hurtles towards Florida as a Category 5 storm. Hubby and I plan to skedaddle out of Tallahassee on Sunday morning and head to Talladega, Alabama. Even then, there’s no running away from that storm since it’s so huge but at least we’ll end up with a much weaker version.

      Thanks. We’ve decided to stay put after all. Fleeing is going to be a nightmare considering millions of people from areas in worse shape than ours will have the same idea. Also, some family who has lost their home will probably need that hotel room more than we do.

        Thanks Matt. He is indeed fortunate, so many people are now stranded while trying to flee. I hope they get out in time. Tallahassee is gonna get mighty crowded in the next week or so as people flee here. It’s the capital of Florida so they figured they’ll get better emergency responses and assistance here.
