Yeah, I remember you talking about Buffalo quite a bit. I haven't heard much lately, but I know Buffalo fans will be devastated to lose their team.
Canton (including the Football Hall of Fame) is only 20 minutes from here. Saturday the HOF will be announcing the new inductees. We went to the ceremonies for Jerry Rice and Emmit Smith when they went in.
Well, I still got some tree and shrub orders to get in, so talk to ya again.
Ok Miss Green thumb .Talk soon..lol
By the way the ball will dropping again with us. Looks like Bargnani is going for another point guard , since we really only have one

<quoted text> Lakers have found a system that works, the problem is time is running out, I think they were a bit tired, and they let their guard down, I still think they would have won with Dwight, but I think when he went out that just let the air out of all the lakers, this team does not have anyone who can play good interior defense.
I agree they let air when he went out, but they still could have use team defends and talk to each other for help, and stop shooting 3s like crazy.

Also one think that got my attention the last few games and please feel free to give your opinion on this I noticed.

Kobe passing so much in these past few and not shooting, kept him cold and off rhythm when the game was on the line, I think it was obvious against Hornets and now the suns.

Well see for the plan the Lakers have getting role players doesn't workout, for once getting role players will mean that they have to dump a bunch of other players since they have full squad right now.

These role players need to have expiring contract for the 2015 off season or have small contracts that won't clog their free agent $$$.

2015 we're starting with a new Lakers squad no matter what, may be they will keep KB, Pau and may be some of the other players, but for a lot less, probably they'll not sign any of them until they secure their main target or at least they give them their best offer possible.

That's why I can't see any trade for Pau that makes sense, not there is one I just don't see it.

Friday's edition of the Los Angeles Times featured a lengthy, interesting chat between columnist T.J. Simers whom you might remember from such endeavors as Messing With Mike D'Antoni and Messing With Jim Mora Jr. and Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant. It's not the most fascinating interview Bryant's given recently that honor belongs to his mind-bending talk with ESPN's Chris Palmer, but it's still a wide-ranging sit-down that touches on a load of topics relevant to both his career writ large and the nitty-gritty specifics of this year's struggling 20-26 Lakers, who will be without injured center Dwight Howard when they take on the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night.
But amid discussion of matters like whether he's worried Howard might bolt this offseason ("Yeah, a little bit"), his own reportedly testy relationship with Howard ("I've been through much worse") and his recently ramped-up quotability ("I find myself talking sometimes and I can't believe what I just said"), the conversation somehow turned to a peculiar quirk Bryant's showcased on the court over the years the habit of putting the collar of his jersey in his mouth, appearing to chew or suck on it, sometimes even in the middle of actual game action. As it turns out, there's a simple explanation:
He will be remembered, of course, for being one of the game's greats, willing to eat your young, or his own jersey to win.
"It's disgusting, but my father taught me when your mouth gets dry, just suck the sweat out of your own jersey," he says. "There's no bravado to any of it; it's just a disgusting little trick."
Hmm. Gross! I kind of wish I didn't know that! Don't you kind of wish you didn't know that? But now, here we are, our brains having made room for the information that what we previously might've thought was a sign of Kobe's engagement in the moment or a mechanism for briefly bridling his raging competitive nature is actually just a way to hydrate by re-ingesting your own perspiration. Great. Thanks a lot, Kobe. Maybe just drink some water or Gatorade from here on out. Jeez.

I know You dislike BC big time, but You gotta give some credit, he has never doom the franchise with big huge bad players with bad long contracts.

He has kept your franchise clear of that and flexible to get be able to adsorb good contract, he does buy his time and every time he has screw up he has been able to move the players out in a hearth beat.

Dead on. There times when you hate him and times you love him. I agree. I detest Bryan most for not releasing Bargnani ages ago. At one time I thought Bargs was doing well but its time to let him go for sure. The other thing with of us is now that Jose is gone our team is looking Euroless now. Only Jonas, Pietrus and Jonas left and they never play.

Yup , this is the problem with kobe, I think hes a smart guy off the court, but on the court he doesn't have great vision or imagination for the game, in other words his basketball IQ is not as high as people say it is, he doesn't seem to have a medium button, if he is gonna pass hes gonna over pass, if hes gonna score hes gonna take too many shots, if hes gonna play defense he over plays defense, he cant seem to just find a nice balance. He should let nash handle the ball sometimes, and get some scoring done when the team is not scoring and they go into their droughts, but also another problem is, in that suns game, lakers stood around watching kobe, kobe was shaking his head wanting these guys to move and they wouldn't help him out, so of course kobe has to shoot, lakers need to find some sort of balance.

Wow! the wolves are a horrible squad.

I'm surprise they have good coach, but they just suck!!!

They are missing talent, but still can't be this bad.

This is actually funny, however prior to this we held the ball and could have scored for free pizza but this jackass decides to pull what is deemed a classless act. Problem is he was getting his ass kicked all night. 2 wrongs don't make it right but I would have shot with e second left.

Once again the Lakers find playing the running game and shooting 3, not going inside and there goes the lead.

They need go back inside and slow the tempo

Well the wolves were playing horrible, not much I can say it was done by the Lakers other then dictating the tempo.

But now they can't get a ball in the post.

I wonder if the D'antoni can figure that out during the half time break, if he doesn't that means he is worst of a coach that I originally thought.
