<quoted text>I respect your commentary but I don't need it.He has already displayed hypocrisy to the fullest and his arrogance only creates a endless pit of bolstering.He needs Sammy and other guys to like him which was his first mistake.He has no backbone and like others on here they will result to stereotypes altogether proving my point earlier.They don't know what they are talking about.Have you heard any of these guys talk about anything sports wise?Exactly they are so busy feeding each other self esteems that they can't realize how miserable they really look.Its astonishing to me honestly of how thick your ignorance have to be to elude yourself in this fake online persona that somehow you can be political correct in sports.
Justin this has been the most hilarious post. That I have read from you. Such eloquence in your explanation of swet nothings. First off who are you to tell us we are arrogant? I mean come on. Its not our arrogance, its really comes down to your stupidity that makes you look like a peanut. Secondly, if you are so loose about online identity can you please post your DOB full name social insurance and credit numbers(if you have them). I mean what kind of reidiculous statement is that. Then you went on about white people? Are you high? Cut the crap, if you actually reasoned with people you would get some respect. You talked about sayin and hiding. Dude I have seen more monikers from you then Puff Daddy combs, I know you better than Solution and Sayin, I know how you roll. You seem to try and be reasonable only later to become an absolute Jackass. It was you who admitted to the Bipolar backround not us. Go back a few posts.you also had the nerve to ask me about how to deal with women. Remember that J? Quit with the BS like you always do, maybe one day some on might just take you seriously for once.

Ignorant?I actually am all ears listening to your so called perceived intelligence of the game of basketball if there is any.Basketball predictions is the factor of a carefully though out variable in great details and an explanation with stats of why you selected this particular outcome.You guys are far fetched at everything.First you only select teams that you like and insult other bloggers teams that you don't like instead of taking a higher approach of staying away from insulting.Instead thats all you do rather than simply stating why you disagree like I always do.You rather insult me which is the highest grade of ignorance and the humor with it only display your amateurity.I respect Water simply because he has on many occasions stated I was right with my opinions.Your the lab rat Sammy.

You're a lying little hypocrite as all you do is insult and name call especially when you can no longer intelligently articulate your weak points.

You've been branded a troll and a joke for a reason because over a great amount of time that's what you alone have proven yourself to be. Own it and deal with it and be proud you're on the Angelinoflake level. Actually scratch that, he's above you.

I admitted it hypocrite. I owned my mistake and I'm man enough to admit I am and have been wrong a lot in my life. They key is, I try and learn from the wrongs I've done to not repeat them later and hell, some wrongs were just too much fun and I at that time didn't feel like being right. ;)

You on the other hand are consistently wrong and off the mark and make no apologies for it. You claim to be a fan of the Falcons (I'm no fan of the Cavs or LBJ) and you didn't even know they went to NY a couple years ago and set a record for scoring 2 points in a playoff game! I had to tell you umpteen times before you got past your own ignorance.

Like I said before, you are what they say you are; a trolling little POS joke who can't tell if he's coming or going. Seek some help little boy, I can only imagine how you're revered in real life. It's a painful thought.

That makes no sense.You argue facts first than state your opinions.I got to admit that I disagree with a lot of what Justin stated but to make wild accusations like he did on Lebron is no different than Justin hatred towards Kobe.I was reading what Justin was saying and he's a hypocrite.I got to say if he's a hypocrite you guys are bigger ones because I've been reading all you guys forum all year and its full of insults.I'm a Laker fan and this guy jusayin should not get a pass on that statement.He deserves no credibility but much of what Justin said about Kobe being shooting too much and ball hogging its not hatred.He is a bit hoggish at times and his greatest strengths can be his greatest weakness.As a Laker fan I prefer a player like Lebron any day over Kobe.I love Kobe but the early year insults towards us fans can't be ignored.Kobe gets the pass way to much while Lebron gets ridiculed for things as small as wearing a Yankee hat lol.I'm a LAKER FAN with great respect towards Lebron.

Great b-ball knowledge.How is making fun of someones illness humble?Its actually a sign of weakness towards anyone who insults.This is a 1st class attempt to insult.Some of the things you stated related to the LBJ rigging thing deserves to be insulted.You must be like 10?I was at the game when my Lakers got those ridiculous 20 plus free throws in the 4th vs Kings that won us that game.I'll admit that the Kings that year was screwed.Theres evidence towards that.Why are you bashing LJ for that? Aren't you the same guy who called Justin's insults of Kobe stupid but how is this any different.Your insulting,your ignoring facts and you are calling him names.This is not a display of a real Laker fan.You are a disgrace to any fan because of your ignorance dude.That's hypocrisy to the fullest.

Ok I get what you're saying but, Shaq was the superstar when Kobe was just an up and comer. What other superstar was in LA then? Exactly.
Was Dwight there with Shaq and Kobe? Nope. Nash too? Nope.
Ok, so LA has got Kobe at the tail end of an illustrious career, Dwight proving he's deserving of the title superstar and Nash who is hanging on to the cautionary red flag for dear life. To me that's not Bosh, Wade and LBJ all in their respective primes or extremely close to it.
I take nothing away from LBJ but could he do the same with just one other star on his team? Probably not. Having 2 bonafide superstars alongside him makes it so much easier for him to get the shots he wants thus making him look extremely great.
Put LBJ instead of Kobe with this Lakers team with all they've gone through, Dwight's bad back and attitude, Nash's broken bone, Blake's surgery, Pau's foot etc etc what do you have? What are they, 5-10 games better maybe? A contender they're not though.
BS to the fullest.Lebron would win a title with our team because he wouldn't have got Mike Brown fired.Kobe doesn't do much but isolate which limits the supporting players.Lebron can get 30 shooting 12 shots while getting a triple double.Lebron is so much better than Kobe now its ridiculous that any fan including a Laker fan can continue to say this nonsense.Lebron would be our pg and would be the key to an aging defense.He would answer all of our weaknesses that began much before Mike D entered office.It started with Phil and all went downhill after.What games are you guys watching?I've grew up watching Magic and Bird so all this BS that scorers should isolate and shoot is BS.These guys could have gotten 25 and Bird could have gotten 30 every night but these guys maximized there great teams.Kobe doesn't do that.Lebron always has and continues to do that.

If ever been having conversations with Justin and jus sayin for over a year now. J.S is usually spot on when it comes to stating facts. That's y I say who cares if he forget A fact. Everyone does it sometimes. And I am also a huge lebron fan. I've never said a bad thing about him. Just because Kobe is one of my favorites doesn't mean that lebron isn't also a favorite

You come out of nowhere as a nobody with no location given to say who you really might be and say I have no credibility? LOL

Who gives a damn what you think in that trolling head of yours. Funny thing though, you say I have no cred and you try and bag on Solution yet here you are debating us? Nice job. You're nothing more than a troll and I will treat you as such from hereon.

You're entitled to your opinion and I am entitled to mine and funny thing is, in my 1,200+ posts this is the only time I had a brain fart and let you trolls have that 1 thing on me...I think that's a pretty damn good success/fail ratio as nobody's perfect as I'm sure you're not either and you've made your fair share of mistakes in your long life and at your advanced age you could be close to misquoting and brain farting a whole lot more so be careful how you come down on people for simple mistakes senior citizen glasshouse as my overall point is still solid when I said the NBA road for LBJ was paved before he graduated HS.

Anyway, I agree with you actually. This current roster along with Jim Buss running the show and D'Antoni coaching the team doesn't instill confidence and surely doesn't make me believe we can win it all anytime soon as it didn't win Orlando a championship so why would a similar thing work in LA even with an aging Kobe unless Dwight is willing to take a much lesser role and be happy with it? Which he's clearly not currently.

I will disagree and say I'm not for LBJ coming to the Lakers; I don't think LA should feel it needs to win that way by getting the NBA's best established player but I also didn't like LBJ going to the Heat and making it a 1 horse race for the next several seasons possibly but what's good for the goose is for the gander as LA enjoyed that too for a long spell.

Nash shot 43.8% from 3 this year, which led the team. When Jason Kidd was leading the league in to's every year, he was also considered to be the best pg in the NBA. So what is your point there, to's mean nothing it's your assist to turnover ratio that matters. Plus he's 39 yrs old 99% of players are retired by that age, what do u expect? The only pg I saw play to that age was John Stockton at 41.
Dwight Howard on the other hand has zero post moves, and is a horrible free throw shooter. What's his excuse?
You obviously don't know what you're talking about, anyone can see that.
