Now that France has made it to the Semi in FIBA World Championships, will Diaw and Parker lead the retreat? Does their jerseys have a yellow stripe running down the back? The French are trying to back out of Lebanon, why would their basketball team do anything different? I have nothing good to say about stinky spinless frogs.

your right! he second comnig of Kareem Adul Jabbar! what a freking joke. All the lakers fan see thier current players as if they are any good, there are only 3 players that are worth something. Kobe"Ballhogger"Brya nt,Vladimair Rodmanavic and Lamar Odom the other players are just simply bench players or overseas players.
I like Boris Diaw game but the french are a bunch of cowards that have no moral and you guys need to let your women know that hairy arm pits are NOT SEXY!!!!
Go SUNS!!

OK as long as you know nothing about the Lakers, you should probably keep your opinions about them to yourself. I said Turiaf is a beast and a ball of energy, I didnt say anything about him being the next Kareem, although our 'bench players' and 'overseas players' just shitted on your amazing suns last night, and guess what, they'll do it again on halloween.

FUCK THE SUNS!

WOW!!!
I never thought that the Lakers would be bragging about a freaking pre season game! is that how low your expectation has gone? a meaningless pre season game?

You better enloy it becouse come the playoffs you aint going to win shit!

Marion played 15 minutes, Nash played 20 minutes and we shot 3% from the 3 point line and you barely won by 3 measly points!!!
Lamar Odom played all the fourth quarter and so did Luke Walton who are 2 of your starting 5 and barealy beat us by 3 freaking points!!

YOU suck!
The Lakers Suck!

why don't the postings leave the 'war' up to the players who can make the difference in a game - their dribble is only for their ego and doesn't alter the game at all...grow up!!!...cheers

"cussing is a ignorant man trying to express themself" and you are not only ignorant, but an idiot as well.
The Lakers won and I can understand why you guys hate us and why you guys have a lot of frustration toward the Suns and their fans. I know that game 7 of last year playoffs was a hard one to swallow.

speaking of ignorant, AND your GED talk...
1. did you know you're supposed to use 'an' in front of a word like 'ignorant' and not 'a'? you should have learned that in 6th grade grammar...(see above)

2. yeah is spelled with an 'h'. not 'yea'(see above)

3. there are no o's in the word because (see above)

4. you said, "aint never going to happen just like you never getting our GED or a job" ... wtf? why would i want YOUR GED?

finally... the LAKERS fans jealous of PHOENIX? hahaha...
how many RINGS? ZERO! nothing to show for anything.

lakers? <gulp>... 14 RINGS!! plus, the LA Lakers have the most wins (2,806), the highest winning percentage (61.5%), and the most finals appearances (28).

there's another saying out there, "yer still a fuckindouchebag."
p.s. seriously, stay OFF the computer...

LOL, lakers355s, u are the man brother...take that suns fan, cos its The Truth. btw, it doesnt matter who takes the pacific division title, its what u do with the positioning is what is important, the last two years the suns have had chances, but havent taken them, like the lakers used to. it wasnt our posistioning in the playoffs, it was their knowledge of what to do when certain situations, or certain games are on the horizon that won us our championships. the suns in certain situations dont know what to do and that results in losing the big games that actually count!

Whatever! Every title the Lakers won, they won because they were one of the most TALENTED teams in the league. The past couple of years my Suns, because of injuries, were basically overachieving with a 6-7 man rotation. How could you even compare the two? Now, if we get to the playoffs relatively injury free with this team that we have this season, there will be no excuse for us not to be competitive.

The suns are an extremely good outside shooting team. But you guys lack that inside presence. With a solid center, you guys have a shot at the championship. But without one, the stronger, bigger teams are always gonna win it in a 7-game series.

The laker's young players are playing great right now, but it will take more to get past the playoffs and I know it.. i admit it. The good thing is that Bynum shows no signs of fear to take a shot now. That's a very good sign. But as much as he can get better, he can go cold.. who knows!

GO LAKERS!
