Posted Tuesday March 25, 2014, About: Yankees desperate to trade Ichiro
The Yankees need Ichiro just in case there are any injuries to the starting outfield. He's not going to complain sitting it out while waiting.
Posted Saturday March 15, 2014, About: Yankees gave Choo 21 hours
I know there are a lot of MLB players out there who would jump at a chance to play with the Yankees. Look at all the FA's picked up so far. Why do you think Tanaka picked the Yankees?
Posted Wednesday March 12, 2014, About: Kobe's done for the year
Make Kobe an assistant coach so D'Antoni can show him how to tank. Then make Kobe the head coach so they can be the worst Lakers team ever. That will give the Lakers a shot at a number 1 pick. Then hire a real head coach to take the Lakers to another championship. No, I don't hate Kobe, I'm just miffed about his 48 million 2 year contract. Send Jim Buss to any business school/managemet school so he can learn something. Please stop the bleeding!
Posted Tuesday March 11, 2014, About: Lakers considered coaching change
Mike D'Antoni is the perfect coach for a team that wants to tank. As soon as the Lakers get who they want in the draft and in FA's, they can replace him with a real head coach.

A veteran presence in the locker and pretty much nothing to offer on the court. He would just wear his championship ring in the locker room for any playoff contender and talk about how they won the title 10 years ago.
Posted Sunday February 23, 2014, About: Kobe Bryant's return in doubt?
This season is the best time for the Warriors to go all out to win a title. They better hurry though, the Lakers will be a new and improved, better, and brand new team next season.
Posted Saturday February 22, 2014, About: Kobe Bryant's return in doubt?
Dr. Jerry Buss' passing is the reason the organization has not been running very well. When he was still alive he probably tried to pass down to his children the correct way to run the Lakers. Looks like his kids didn't learn anything.
Do you think the late Dr. Jerry Buss would have agreed to give that 2 year contract worth all that money to Kobe, considering his injury situation?
Posted Friday February 21, 2014, About: Tiger Woods off to worst start in career
Tiger isn't Superman anymore. He's Clark Kent, a mere mortal just like everyone of us. That's why we're just going to have to be patient with him. I know, everyone wants him to win more majors. Don't worry he will eventually.
He's already given us great memories of what he's done in the past, so maybe we should stop hounding him about his play. Go Tiger!
Posted Friday February 21, 2014, About: Cavaliers unlikely to trade Jarrett Jack
I was surprised the Warriors let him go in the off season. He was great off the bench when he was with them. That's probably why the Warriors picked up Steve Blake from the Lakers,so he can back up Curry.

I'm not surprised the Cavaliers are keeping Jack. They see his value to the team.
Posted Thursday February 20, 2014, About: Lakers fielding multiple offers for ...
Bring Jerry West back. He was a true genius during his time as GM for the Lakers.
Posted Wednesday February 19, 2014, About: Lakers moving Hill to ...
An old-timers team? If that's the case you have to sign Kareem. He's definitely old-timer. Maybe Kareem can Sacre and Kaman a few tricks.
Posted Wednesday February 19, 2014, About: Lakers will make trades that will impact future
It's the 1st round draft picks this summer that are going to impact the future of the Lakers. Yes, that's more than one 1st round draft pick if they can pull it off with the trade deadline coming up.
Go Lakers!
Posted Tuesday February 18, 2014, About: Bryant: Body is giving out
What if he does come back close to how he used to play, what will the naysayers say then. I'm just saying you never know about these things until it all plays out. Let's just see.
Posted Sunday February 24, 2013, About: Steve Nash tweaked back vs. Blazers
Go Nash ! Go Lakers !!
Posted Wednesday September 05, 2012, About: Howard hints at re-upping in L.A.
Howard is in good hands with Jabbar and the Lakers. Kareem will be a great inspiration and motivator on the bench for Howard. Howard is going to be unstoppable with Nash in the pick and roll and his overall power game.

I don't think Laker fans should be worried about keeping Howard in Hollywood. Its a gimme.
Posted Saturday September 01, 2012, About: Matt Barnes not ruling Lakers out
The Lakers should go ahead and sign Barnes. He's the back up thug for the starting thug (Metta World Peace).
Posted Tuesday August 28, 2012, About: Bosh: Lakers have NBA's best team 'on paper'
Lakers vs. Heat in the finals. Lakers in 6.
Posted Thursday August 16, 2012, About: Kobe ready to hand Lakers over to Howard
The Lakers are just getting ready for Kobe's departure. The Lakers need another star that can take the place of Kobe when he retires.

It's going to be soon. Maybe another 2 or 3 seasons before Kobe hangs up his sneakers.
Now that they have Howard, they have Kobe's successor.

Hopefully Howard signs a multi year contract when the time comes so the hand off can take place.
Posted Thursday August 16, 2012, About: Boeheim: LeBron may be better than Jordan
Yes, maybe Lebron may be better than Michael Jordan but we're going to have to wait until Lebron has retired from the game to justify it.

Can Lebron win another 5 more championships to match Jordan's. I think this is what we have to look at when we want to compare the two.

Barkley, Karl Malone, & Ewing were great players but with 0 championships. Championships are how we compare greatness. Look at Bill Russell, there is no other player with more championships than him. I think Boeheim knows what he's talking about.
Posted Thursday August 16, 2012, About: No interest in Oden?
Greg Oden's career is over. It's too bad that it had to happen this way. Having bad knees was his downfall.

Bill Walton had bad knees too but he was able to play and win 2 NBA championships.

Maybe there's a team out there that will stick him on the bench as the third option for center.
Posted Monday August 13, 2012, About: Coach K retiring from Olympic coaching
I think it was the right decision for him to give up the reigns for another coach to handle. Is he still capable of still continuing? Of course he is but why risk not being able to deliver in another 4 years in Rio.

Maybe coach K could see the changes that could be happening with the age limit for playpers.
