The Rockets and the Nuggets were much tougher defensively.

You have to give them some credit. Kobe was unstoppable last night. The Magic have some decent defenders, Kobe just played amazing last night. Nearly all of his shots were contested. The Magic peed down their leg. The Lakers were more prepared and were the better team last night. I knew that the Lakers size on the perimeter would hurt the Magic, but in all honesty, the Magic missed a lot of open shots. I still expect this series to go atleast 6, if the Magic recover from this whipping.

Lakers played great and Kobe was raping their nonexistant D. Magic were due for a poor shooting night that they never had against Cleveland. They won't win much shooting 30 percent from the floor and game 2 is a must win if they want to even make a series out of it.

Boobs McGee
06-05-2009, 04:24 PM
Wow we played like we SHOULD have played last night. That felt like a solid win....granted, the magic were shooting so bad from three point land that they couldn't have hit water if they spit off of a boat, but I attribute a LOT of that to our outstanding D. I realize they're most likely not going to miss the open threes they did all series, but even IF they would have hit a more reasonable 40% it still would have been lakers.

The way we were playing howard was perfect. The shuffling of the trapper back and forth to the perimeter was excellent. Bynum really played him tough in the first half I thought, and he looks to be getting a little more comfortable in the postseason.

Interesting to note, we didn't have arieza OR bynum last year for the playoffs, and in all actuality bynum's played what, two halfs of two seasons? I love how all the naysayers are denying his ability, when this is his FIRST TIME in the playoffs. Essentially a rookie. He's finally figuring out what the postseason is like. Every possession is a fierce battle, tons of banging around and intensity. I think he really steps up this series.

Lamar's back finally looks better, he was playing with a LOT of hustle last night...kinda looked like the lamar who steps up and contributes.

Kobe bryant is just the ****ing man. He is not gonna lose this series. Close to a triple double. He was really doing a terrific job of pickin apart that soft D, distributing and TAKING OVER!

MAN we looked good!!!!

While it's conceivable that Howard could someday get there, he's not anywhere close to the level of Shaq when he was in his prime. Howard is surprisingly still a very raw offensive player in that fact that he really hasn't developed the repitoire of post moves he probably should have. Will Howard ever put up a 30-14 season like Shaq did once? Maybe, but he has a ton of making up to do if he's going to develop into that kind of offensive force.

Even at the same age that Howard is now, Shaq already had two 29 ppg. seasons under his belt, and he was a comparable force on the defensive end.

I've always thought the same thing. During the Kobe and Shaq feud, Shaq was really the driving force behind it because he constantly made comments in the media. Kobe finally shot back with the Jim Grey interview and the war was on. Most people blamed Kobe for it, but they don't realize that Shaq was always making some smartass comment about Kobe. I'd say that they should have taken equal blame in the feud, but all the blame was lumped on Kobe because everybody just liked Shaq. Especially the LA media. Shaq would invite them to all his parties and give them funny quotes, so they all went after Kobe. They didn't want to screw up their invites to big parties. People say that Kobe got Shaq traded. Funny thing, but I clearly remember Shaq demanding to be traded. People say that Kobe got Phil fired. Funny, but I don't remember Phil getting fired, I remember him quitting. But it was all Kobe's fault. Maybe Shaq was a big a-hole who knew how to work people over. He left all the blame on Penny Hardaway when he left Orlando. He left all the blame on Kobe when he left the Lakers. He took shots at the Heat after he left. When has this guy ever parted ways on good terms with any team? I'm glad Kobe is winning a title without Shaq, and I hope he asked Shaq how his ass tastes afterwards.

RULE NO. 11-BASKETBALL INTERFERENCE-GOALTENDING

Posted Jan 31 2001 12:00AM

Section I-A Player Shall Not:

a. Touch the ball or the basket ring when the ball is using the basket ring as its lower base.
EXCEPTION: If a player near his own basket has his hand legally in contact with the ball, it is not a violation if his contact with the ball continues after the ball enters the cylinder, or if, in such action, he touches the basket.
b. Touch the ball when it is above the basket ring and within the imaginary cylinder.
c. For goaltending to occur, the ball, in the judgment of the official, must have a chance to score.
d. During a field goal attempt, touch a ball after it has touched any part of the backboard above ring level, whether the ball is considered on its upward or downward flight.
e. During a field goal attempt, touch a ball after it has touched the backboard below the ring level and while the ball is on its upward flight.
f. Trap the ball against the face of the backboard. (To be a trapped ball, three elements must exist simultaneously. The hand, the ball and the backboard must all occur at the same time. A batted ball against the backboard is not a trapped ball.)
g. Touch any live ball from within the playing area that is on its downward flight with an opportunity to touch the basket ring. This is considered to be a "field goal attempt" or trying for a goal.
h. Touch the ball at any time with a hand which is through the basket ring.
i. Vibrate the rim or backboard so as to cause the ball to make an unnatural bounce.
PENALTY: If the violation is at the opponent's basket, the offended team is awarded two points, if the attempt is from the two point zone and three points if it is from the three point zone. The crediting of the score and subsequent procedure is the same as if the awarded score has resulted from the ball having gone through the basket, except that the official shall hand the ball to a player of the team entitled to the throw-in. If the violation is at a team's own basket, no points can be scored and the ball is awarded to the offended team at the free throw line extended on either sideline. If there is a violation by both teams, play shall be resumed by a jump ball between any two opponents at the center circle. All the above apparently doesnt mean sh!t when concerning the Lakers

Even at the same age that Howard is now, Shaq already had two 29 ppg. seasons under his belt, and he was a comparable force on the defensive end.

The only refined part of Shaqs game was his passing. His offensive repertoire consisted mainly of fouling his way to within a foot of the basket at which point he would either dunk on the guy he committed numerous charge penalties against or get fouled by the guy he had committed numerous charge penalties against...and then he would complain about getting fouled.

His free throw shooting almost always sucked. Its highly questionable whether Shaq was really ever better than Olajuwon at his best or whether Olajuwon just got old and retired. There were a lot of quality centers from Olajuawons era that retired, leaving a dearth of centers that Shaq benefited from.

That's the thing about Laker haters. When the Lakers get a favorable call it's because it's a fix. But when the Lakers opponent gets a favorable call, there is nothing wrong with it.

Howard clearly goal tended Gasol's dunk. No call. And there was no way they'd call goal tending on that final play unless it was blatant goal tending. The guy just missed the shot. Period. Gasol hitting the rim had no affect on the shot, he just missed.

Unfortunately the play with Howard wouldnt have decided the outcome of the game. Thats why its not being talked about. And yes, I agree that was goaltending as well.

I watched the game with a bunch of Lakers fans last night, and to hear them cry over Kobe not getting fouled at the end of regulation was HILARIOUS!

Rashard Lewis tapped his OFF hand right before Kobe got tossed by that ugly ****ing turk!

That's just silly. You're talking about one of the greatest post players to ever play the game, and you're saying he simply fouled his way to the basket everytime?

"committed numerous charge penalties"??? Of course he used his physical gifts to get the basket, but it was more often around guys rather than through them. And I would even argue the other way and say the only way you could stop him would be to beat the crap out of him, and because it happened so often players would get more leeway from officials when defending him.

And yes, the only thing that kept him from averaging 35 maybe even 40 ppg in a season was his free throw shooting.

Also, while I think Shaq was better, comparing him to Olajuwon is hardly a slight, considering they were both two of the top 5 centers ever to play.

Maybe, but in terms of just being an unstoppable force, Howard is no where near 90s Shaq. That's probably why Shaq hates Howard, people are trying to compare the two, and that's kind of an insult to Shaq.

NBA officials have come out and said that it's pretty much a "no call". It wasn't a direct violation of the rules, but an official would be within his right to make that call.

But there is no way a ref makes a call on that play. Unless it was obvious there is no way they make that call, and when it comes down to it, Gasol didn't affect the shot in anyway, so people need to stop crying.

Well i can say that wouldn't be true for me. Perfect example. Game 2 against the Nuggets. It's a jump ball with the Lakers down by 1 I believe, with like 5 seconds to play. The Lakers get the tip off as the ball falls to Ariza, who somehow trips and throws the ball and the game away. But wait, before Ariza caught the ball one of the Nugget players, I believe it was J.R. Smith, runs from one side of the circle that the players made to the other, which is a direct violation. The Lakers should have gotten the ball out of bounds.

Some Lakers fans complained. I wasn't one of them. The way I saw it was that the violation had no effect on the play, Smith running to the other side actually helped the Lakers because it was one less player on the side that Ariza was looking to pass too. But Ariza blew it. The violation had nothing to do with him blowing it. The Lakers simply loss the game. I thought that any Laker fan that was complaining needed to shut up and stop complaining.

Same goes for Magic fans and Laker haters. Stop complaining. The guy simply missed the shot and people are looking for the refs to save the day.

Oh and the ball had touched the backboard in the questioned play when Gasol hit the rim.

LOL maybe ;)

anywho unfortunately I was in the car when it happened, so I was only listening. BUT, if if hit the backboard then he should have called it.

Jason makes a good point though, the refs within his right to not make the call, and probably made the right call in the no call.

There is really no excuse for them missing that call. The nets moved in a obvious fashion. the ball came out of the rim. Gasol went nuts! According to the Laker Hater logic... Stern must have something to do with that call. He must want the series to go 7 games. However, Kobe didn't get the Memo. Stick a fork in them and find that broom!

Sorry Lebron you have to get to the finals yourself the comish won't help you. Cavs lost because no one player can do it alone. Players like Kobe and Lebron have to have some big guys to help.

My brother almost popped a vein over that non call. I mean the dudes hands was blocking the ball from inside the rim lol.

Reminds me a little of when Lakers were crap, we had lost all yr and barely squeeked into playoffs. Vlade, Threat, etc were on the team.

We were playing the suns and Barkley and were upsetting them. Came down to last game where Barkely did an obvious goal tend to score a basket and get the win and the series. I can't remember the yr but after Barkely said where were all the Laker fans who cared during the yr when we were beating them by 20.

I'm so glad Barkley never won anything, I hate that dude!!!!! WHAT A LOSER no rings for you!!!

That's just silly. You're talking about one of the greatest post players to ever play the game, and you're saying he simply fouled his way to the basket everytime?

"committed numerous charge penalties"??? Of course he used his physical gifts to get the basket, but it was more often around guys rather than through them. And I would even argue the other way and say the only way you could stop him would be to beat the crap out of him, and because it happened so often players would get more leeway from officials when defending him.

And yes, the only thing that kept him from averaging 35 maybe even 40 ppg in a season was his free throw shooting.

Also, while I think Shaq was better, comparing him to Olajuwon is hardly a slight, considering they were both two of the top 5 centers ever to play.


No, like I said, Shaq never really evolved which means his best was never really better than Olajuwons best. I dont see how you can watch him and not see his caveman tactics of fouling his way to within a foot of the basket. He did it all the time. Every once in a while he would execute some drop-step spin type move but mostly it was the caveman tactics. And for that reason, he had no business averaging 35 points a game. He should have fouled out well before that most of the time. When you talk about Shaq, youre really talking about someone who had a size advantage over most of his contemporaries because, again, there was a dearth of centers on top of Shaq being massive. But the one thing you can say for them is that they could move their feet and hold their ground on a charge. It was evident every time Shaq played.

That "drop step spin move" was ****ing amazing. He had some of the quickest feet in Big man history. He could hit most anything from inside of ten feet. Jump hooks, banks, fadeaways...he could shoot them all. The majority of the time he caught passes on the blocks, opposing teams RAPED him. If his free throw shooting would've been anywhere near 70 percent you can bet your ass he'd be a LOT higher than fifth all time in scoring.

The fact that you can sit here and infer that his feet were slow and his game never evolved tell me that you never watched a lakers game in the last decade.

He used to lead fast breaks, break ankles, and throw it down on the biggest the nba had to offer.

I just keep re-reading your posts, and I just laugh.

Caveman tactics, huh? That drop step was his bread and butter, just like Kareem had the sky hook. But, apparently when you make the other players look like fools because they FALL OVER ONCE YOU'RE NOT THERE ANYMORE TO HOLD THEM UP, it's a caveman tactic. You do realize that's what's happening in all of those clips, don't you? When you put your full body weight on someone, and suddenly the make a rediculously quick move to the basket, you're going to stumble.

Is it a caveman tactic because he was bigger than the other poor widdle centers on the floor? That must mean Wilt never evolved either, right?

You need to quit paraphrasing the blogs you're reading and start forming logical and original thought.

I think he's a douche now, but there's no argument that he wasn't one of the most talented and dominant centers to EVER play the game.

Regular season MVP *and consequently that year he was second in rebounding and third in blocked shots.

If using a player's strength and size to muscle through the defense is a caveman tactic then you've gotta review the games of ALOT of the NBA's great players. Theres a guy - 6'9, 290 without a single post up move, and who scores 90% of his points running people over and hitting free throws...

Bingo. It's obvious he has no clue what he is talking about. Shaq was the best center I've personally ever seen play.

As for Howard, I think his ceiling is David Robinson, but I'm not sure he has that much offensive skill. They are similar in a lot of ways, though, right down to the bible in their gym bag. I always thought Robinson was kind of a 4-5 tweener, and maybe that is exactly what Howard is. Perhaps Howard needs another PF-C type in the front court to truly take off on the offensive end? I dunno.

The majority of the time it was caveman basketball with Shaq though. It was a process of watching him back into someone who had position to nudge him backwards with his big ass until eventually he was within a foot of the basket where he would then try to dunk. Essentially he would foul his way to within a foot of the basket. He did this all the time.

You are drastically overstating something that would happen occasionally and conveniently ignoring what he did a lot.

Ive actually liked Shaq for the most part but your whole take on how well rounded his game was is laughable.

I think Shaqs perceived dominance is really more Olajuwon and Ewing (but moreso Olajuwon) getting old. There was dearth of centers after Olajuwon, Robinson, and Ewing retired. Shaq benefited from this. He didnt really evolve as much as people think.

Like I said, you may have a case with Olajuwon. Personally, I would take Shaq.

I never liked Ewing, always thought he was soft, and he played on some of the most unentertaining teams to watch that we've ever seen. But you can't forget that he was still playing at a pretty high level for the first 5 or 6 years of Shaq's career. Same with Hakeem, and if it weren't for Hakeem, Shaq probably has another ring.

Yeah, well if it wasnt for Jordan retiring to play baseball, Olajuwon probably doesnt have two rings and Jordan probably has 8. But whatever. Like I said, around the time the likes of Olajuwon, Ewing, and Robinson were all retiring, they were being replaced by early entries like Tyson Chandler and Eddie Curry. Shaq benefited from this.

Shaq wasn't half as skilled as Olajuwon, imo. Olajuwon could do it all. He could shoot from 15 feet out of he needed to.

BUT, Shaq is obviously the most physical center to ever play the game, and once inside, just couldn't be stopped. For that reason alone, at their prime... maybe Shaq was a more dominant player.

But, Hakeem was 10x more fun to watch, and just a complete basketball player. I'm far from an NBA expert, but he was probably my 2nd favorite player to watch, ever.

Shaq was always sort of dull to watch. Effective, but just the same thing over and over. Big, and too physical to stop underneath.

The amazing thing about Olajuwon was he was a great soccer and handball player in Nigeria and didn't even play basketball until he was a senior in high school. Think about that; he STARTED playing basketball at the same age that Kobe was drafted by the Lakers. The fact that he became one of the all-time greats is an unbelievable acheivment and quite a credit to his sheer athletic ability.

It's tough to compare him to Shaq because they were two completely different players that happened to play the same position. But like Hakeem, Shaq had great physical attributes that enabled him to dominate. He's similar to Wilt in that aspect, as people say that Chamberlain was such a massive guy that nobody could physically stop him. Chamberlain, too, was awful at shooting free throws.

Now, I would say that Shaq relied too much on his size and strength, which pissed me off a lot. Because he was bigger and stronger he never really worked on becoming a skilled big man. If Shaq had worked hard, and really worked on every aspect of his game, he would have gone down as the greatest player ever. To me there is no question about that. But he didn't see the need to. He didn't have the work ethic of other great players. As great as Shaq was, he could have been greater. That's kind of a shame.

So basically you're discounting low post play. Ever since I started watching basketball, when the pass comes to ANYONE in the paint and they're back is to the basket, unless they just turn and shoot (which shaq did on plenty of occasions), they back into the defender to get better position, then make some kind of move.

So because shaq used his advantageous size on many occasions, and NO you can point fingers all you want but it wasn't fouling the majority of the time, it's caveman?

He's a great example for you because his physicality was that much more than everyone elses...doesn't mean that everyone else wasn't using the same moves. The difference is, because they have to triple team him, "fans" like you decide that it's unfair and he has no skill, hence he fouls. If everyone who used their "big ass" to back people down fell into your particular categorization of center skill, you wouldn't have an argument.

Honestly man, whoever you are, I'm just going to stop replying to your posts. Apparently you're one of those guys who just has it in his mind that he's right, and can never concede points. Every time we've disagreed (or for that matter ANYONE you've disagreed with), you're right and they're wrong. Which is fine. But I'm done. I don't like arguing with ten year olds that make all encompassing end all presumptious accusations that are etched in stone.

Backing into people that have position to nudge them back is a charge and in Shaqs case he would often nudge guys multiple times until within a foot of the basket. Thats a charge. Its in the rules. Dont get upset. You know its true. But where Shaq is concerned Im not so sure I saw others as blatant with this but, moreover, I know no other centers who would routinely foul their way to the basket to this degree and then complain about being fouled after youve committed multiple fouls getting to the basket.

Anywho, horrible game tonight. As much as we wanted that game, the Magic wanted it more. Lewis KILLED us in the fourth. While our D was pretty decent in the first half, it's pretty tough to switch on the perimiter when EVERYBODY throwing up shots is hitting %60 plus percent. Personally, I thought Kobe and Lamar had ****ty games, and our free throw shooting was horrid. And by kobe having a ****ty game, I just thought he was doing too much (and understandably, because no one else seemed consistent), and what the hell was up with his free throws?

I pick the Lakers to win a close one tomorrow and lose game 5. they close it in 6...at home...and hopefully I get tickets again!

Not a Laker fan, but even I know about his shot against the Spurs. Duncan hits a 3 to put them in the lead. Derek hits an amazing shot for the win. One of the most amazing things I've ever seen. Right up there with McGrady scoring 13 or so points in 30 sec. That was also against the Spurs.

There is no substitute for good coaching. Stan Van Dumby can say experience doesn't mean anything all he wants ( He's wrong about that ) but, he cannot say that good coaching doesn't make a difference. Phil Jackson out coached and out maneuvered Van Dumby. When he decided to insert Jameer Nelson in the first game I knew it would come back to bite him. Rafer Alston and Johnson were playing just fine and the Magic made it all season without Nelson. There is no common sense reason to have him playing at all. It's not like Nelson is the Go To Guy on the team.

The second thing is... Van Dumby is into all that Rah... Rah crap on the sideline instead of situational awareness. You always foul and you don't allow a player to pull up for a three. A good coach reminds his team of the situation. The media hacks can say that the Magic gave this game away all they want... the truth is The Lakers took this game and won it! Nobody said the Lakers gave away game 3 with Kobe missing 5 foul shots. ??? Everyone was talking about how the Lakers got beat.

Kobe has thrown some dirty elbows in his career (like a lot of other great players), but that one last night certainly wasn't. Nelson runs up under him, and his elbows were already up when Nelson runs under him. All Kobe did was rotate to make a pass. Nothing dirty about that play.

And where have you been? You pretty much disappeared after calling me a homer simply for believing that my Lakers had a chance to win a game in Denver. Then they go out and win two games in Denver. Stop being a homer and a hater!

Pretty much. The Magic lived at the line in the 4th period, while the Lakers couldn't get a call, and the Lakers still won. After that game I don't want to hear fans complain that the league helps the Lakers win. If there is any conspiracy (which I think is silly), it was the NBA wanting a Game 6 and 7. But the Lakers weren't having that.

But the Lakers weren't having that.

That was truly some horrible officiating, the worst I've seen in the playoffs this year. What was that call against Fisher when Howard basically laid him out with his forearm? We had to rewind it and play it in slow motion because they wouldn't show a replay.

That said, the Lakers certainly hit some clutch shots, but it was the Magic's game to lose. One extra FT from Turk or Howard, or Nelson actually playing D on Fisher's shot, or Ariza missing the prayer 3 with time running out, and the series is tied. Great game!

2 Finals games in OT, one decided by 1 shot... this has been one of the best NBA post seasons I can remember in a long, long time.

Possibly. I drove 12 hours today from Priest to Seattle and right back to Priest. So I was definitely a mindless drone. I had to hear that story incessantly.

The way it was repeated ad nausium was that the vid got confiscated right after the dunk and LeBron made a stink. The Nike suits then duped the kid into giving up the tape, lied, then eventually tried to spin it when all the pub came out.

Personally I could give a crap. However, I personally guarantee if the same thing had happened to Kobe there would be a ton of people posting it in multiple threads and talking about how Kobe eats unborn babies.

Truth.

Losing LO would have hurt - especially if Bynum isn't healthy.

Our front court depth is what makes us so dominant - when LO comes off the bench there's no drop-off.
