Lakers Nation just another joyful day for the Lakers Nation and the Basketball world. Kobe Bryant two jerseys number 8 and 24 will be retired today starting at 530p. When you go back and realize how difficult it is to produce superstars in this league, You can only appreciate even more what Kobe Bryant has done for the Lakers. We can see some bright future in Ingram , Lonzo Ball may be Kuzma or the all young Lakers squad. Yet there is no guarantee they will reach the Kobe superstar stardom status. What reality is telling us up to now is the fact that we are receiving signal from left and right that may be soon the Lakers may return to their winning ways. Two of those signals are coming From Magic Johnson and LeBron James in particular , Two of the all time great as you can imagine have a hard time keeping secrets. As of right now , base on signals from both sides this is the way I am reading the situation. In the beginning of the year Magic Johnson seem quiet confident he can bring in two superstars players to the Lakers. With time it has been reduce to maybe one and we don’t have to use our max this year but next year instead. Well LeBron James Team without Tomas is doing great then add Thomas to that team, the chance of winning a championship becomes a reality. Now if he can win in Cleveland and become better than Michael Jordan why would he come to The Lakers? Wouldn’t make sense. Would It. in That case LeBron coming may be pushed back to one more year or two or probably never. Why would the Lakers accept a damage good in LeBron few year back. That is my read of the situation. On The other end Oklahoma continue to struggle and why would Paul George stay there? This is The way I am reading the situation. Now Let say LeBron continue to stay in Cleveland and do not win a Championship. LeBron would have missed the opportunity to take a struggling legendary franchise from bad to good if not excellent and win Championship from the west. To me it will take one more championship from a bad team on the West to a championship where as it may take two championships or even 3 to confirm him as better than Jordan. Winning 3 Championships in this league in the row will be a tall order.
Kobe Bryant’s Lakers Jerseys Retirement
Lakers Nation to start things off. there basically never been an argument involving a lot of people where 100 percent of the people will be on one side and zero percent on the other side . there will always be differences even when the matter is so obvious. so the way society separate winners from looser is by using percentage. So before we go any further let me remind you that a pole of these discussions were taken and it went in the favor of a championship 59 % with that clearly most people have chosen winning a championship a better choice.
Now let elaborate. The principal reason of having a league are to entertain, win a championship and eventually make money. Have you ever heard of those winning championships being criticize in a negative way for winning championships. the Horry of the world , the fisher of the world despite not being part of the all of fame all you here about theme is their nice resume of helping teams wins championships after championships taking those last shots when every body is preoccupy with all of famers and being successful at it. on the contrary all we hear about Malone , Barclay the all of famers that missing peace in their resume of not winning a championship. the negativity that comes with that is so out spoken by the all world there is no way a human being in that position cannot be tormented even if he doesn’t have to say it . We know it must be bothersome hearing it from so many people. as the result of that people have to go from team to team chasing that ring just to tell you the importance of it. We saw Barclay chase it, we saw Malone chase it but unfortunately it didn’t happened. We are seeing Kevin Duran chasing it , LeBron James names goes on and on and on . just to show you the importance of having it on your resume,. Do we see Horry or fisher crying around bagging to be put on a chosen all of famer list . no I do not think so. It just like having a lot of money and unable to find a true love . The J low , the holly Barry of the world with fame and Money and having difficulties finding true Loves when plainly of people with basically nothing are loved . That asterisk on your resume being criticized by the world who remind you of it time after time after time non stop till death. How in the world that can be enjoyable Mr. Marcellus Wiley Common man . Stop making unnecessary argument when it is so obvious
Lakers Nation if they cannot get it on the weak east, How are they going to get it on the hard west with Golden States looking stronger? with all indication showing even King James is about to arrive the following year. The Man who prevented them from winning for years. But there is a way. So let put it to work. the only way out Will be To Team up With King James in his rumored Kingdome to come that happened to be the Lakers. On The March to victory, Magic Johnson as his name may indicate and Rob Pelinka are hard at work trying to facilitate the transition. There is a Plan and you can see it coming. let put it to work. Imagine a team of Lonzo Ball, Imgram, two Promising talent, Lopez if you can convince him to take less money to win , Zubac, Larry Nance, Guzman if it can translate to the NBA, Jordan, kcp if willing to take less to win. I have not yet to mention Randle and company with the flexibility to trade Randle and Jordan for a even better fit. Then to that add LeBron James and Paul George. You Can easily wind up with the best fit team the NBA has never assemble. Just Imagine what LeBron James has done with Irving, Love And a bench of you know what? Imagine then what he can do with Paul George, Lonzo Ball, Imgram, Lopez, Guzman, Zubac, KCP ect….
Dear Mr. Rose haven’t you notice every body is running from that team? In case you haven’t notice and been on a different planet let me remind you There is report That Clearly says The two best Player of That team By the Name of LeBron James If you haven’t heard of that Name , and Irving are seeking a way out by 2018 meaning it can be sooner than that, included those who wanted to come have decided to stay away by the name of Anthony and etc. basically the team so far has signed Jose Carbe who? a bench warmer? wouldn’t it be smarter to go to a team every body think LeBron is going to in this case the Lakers your other choice ? LeBron is a business man who gives signal before it happen . proof before he went back to Cleveland there were signal and it was being discussed in the media. I hope after reading this memo you will be smart enough to change your mind . Continue to read
This is One reason why You cannot compare the Magic, Jordan, Bird era to the one of today. Today every good player wants to be on one team to win a championship, and only one team can win a championship per year. That what it is all about winning a championship and you cannot denied it. It started with Kevin Garnet and the Boston big three. Then LeBron James took over with Bosh And Wade . Then Continued with Irvin and Love big 3. Duran said is that so. I am adding my self to Golden State And Paul George Came close to being added to Golden state for a supper, supper team as if what they already had wasn’t enough. Now Irvin want to leave and some one mention just not to add him self to Golden state. if that is not a mess what is it? you tell me. LeBron James is the most calculated player that ever lived. that what he will be know for long after he leaves the NBA just like Kobe is known of being a ball hug. Both Great Players. you may put it this way. It is all about gold. It is all about being better than Jordan. It is not a secret and his fans are quick to want to give him the title before he fully deserve it . He is still at 3 with 1 lucky if you want to call it that way against the Spurs and one suspicious basically given to him by the league against Golden State although they denied it as if a thief will accept stealing even after being caught in the act. It is no secret LeBron is the best player in the Planet today. Does the best Player in the planet needs calculated moves to become the best ever? I have been saying it for years now . to me that is a diminishing return and long after he lives the NBA just like Kobe is being known for a ball hug. Again LeBron will be known for A calculated player who will win at all cost to become the best regardless of his talent. The media have denied it for years but now it is way too obvious for them to denied it. It is creating a mess in the league but being enjoyed by the media because this is what they starved for . The news. They all proclaimed James went in the final 7 times but they wont add in a weak eastern conference nor they will add won 3 lost 4 a negative record. They will not even mention Jordan going to the final 6 times and winning 6 times just to make LeBron numbers look good. They just want you to see the 7 times in the final so let give him the best title ever despite they have more people saying no than yes. Let just crown him. Are you kidding me. Now that every body has learn the tricks, it is going to be tougher for LeBron to achieve winning another championship and eventually becoming the best ever. His only hope now is. You come to the Lakers the best Franchise in the business with overwhelming fan base but a bad team for years now and you turn it around in now time because you just show up on a team in the west not the east and you win a championship with them. That will be undeniable he is the greatest. continue to read
Lakers Nation. Lonzo Ball warring a Nike shoes Didn’t Score a Point in The first quarter but dished 6 assists, Looks like Magic Johnson signature all over the place dish first and score when needed. Then he Went on a rampage on The second half to drop 28 points to almost single handily bring the Lakers back from 15 down to a one point victory with Lebron James on the stand watching, is that recruiting or what? what do you think. I think it was both Recruiting and Nike. Continue to read
Teams in the NBA will hire a player just to prevent him from going to a competitor. We Have seen It in the NBA time after time. For some reason The Lakers seem confident letting Jerry West go to their most competitor in the Clippers sharing the same city the same building knowing what Jerry Can do. Is it Ego Partly yes. It is about getting credit rather coming together for the same purpose winning a Championship togheter. A key to the car has been given to Magic Johnson so Magic wants to show he can drive the car without any body’s help . Jerry has been successful almost every where he has been , him been part of the Lakers will almost certainly take credit of any goods coming out of the Lakers few years to come. The problem is you have to produce and if you don’t , The Lakers fans aren’t going to seat down without challenging your ego. Let Imagine Jerry West Bring in on Board LeBron James instead of the Lakers and becomes a factor not only for a championship while the Lakers continu to improve their young core with a minimal impact . when before Jerry The Lakers seem like a favori to land Lebron and Jerry reverses the trend. History had told us ego can be a problem to society , Just ask Jim Buss he will tell you. it only pays if you find yourself on the good side. Any thing on the bad side may be so destructive , I do not know if it worth a try. Time will tell. They better get it right. I do not know if the Lakers fans will accept another 5 years of waiting and being deceived. Let hope they truly know what they are doing. In the past ego has proven to be the root cause of all problems.
