Yes, ladies and gents, today is Christmas (well, it just passed like 47 minutes ago) because I spent the day watching the NBA baby because NBA 2011-2012 is finally here!

I watched part of the Miami vs Dallas game. Wow. What an awesome match-up. It really looks like the Heats are picking things up. More coordinated, faster, stronger. They just might take it this season afterall!

And what a shameful shameful lose to my Lakers....wow. We just barely had it. I was getting kinda pissed toward the end, we weren't making baskets. And that last play with Rose's floater prior looked like a travel because he jumped, landed, and then passed. Don't know about you guys, but it didn't look right. I don't know why the refs didn't call it. That was bullshit.

Discuss.

whooaa...you're not on the right page with me at all. and as far as girls, this ain't e-harmony son. this is not the right place for that.

Anyways...moving on. What happened tonight?!!?!?!? I can't believe we lost to the scrubs of the scrubs kings!!! Those kids were terrible. You know who I blame? No, I don't blame Luke Walton (even though he is useless), I blame management. I blame the coach, Mike Brown.

Clearly, this is NO strategy what-so-ever within the team. Kobe comes onto the floor and does his magic, but magic isn't good enough at this point in time. There is not replacement for team-work! I was always told that if you're getting beaten, use the same point strat and offensive moves that your opponent used on you. The Kings, no matter how bad they were, were executing their ideas brilliantly, consistently leave one or more men open from either the base line or 3-point line. Once, twice, ok, that's fine. But if you give a blind guy a ball and tell him to keep shooting, it's going to go in eventually, and that's exactly what happened.

Kobe's pick-n-roll and pick techniques are getting old. Nothing wrong with good ol' simple pick-n-rolls but there comes a problem when your opponent knows what you're going to do when you take possession, that's the problem.

Also, WHY WHY WHY would you put Luke Walton, Steve Blake, and Derek Fisher on the floor simultaneously?! None of those guys can shoot consistently, none of those guys can block, and none of those guys are any good at being a point guard, much less occupy space on the court!

Anyways, I'm pissed. We're down 0-2 and we face Utah tomorrow. They're pretty scrubby too, we better win.

On a positive note, while we are losing our behinds off, it is clear that we need a strong center...hint Bynum or Dwight Howard

Mavs lost a lot of heat with the lose of JJ and Chandler and the other guy...his name just slipped my mind. They got Odom but he's not really playing efficiently for the team yet. who knows, that Mavs owner looks like an asshole and doesn't really know what he's doing. One thing I don't understand is, ok, you win the championship, and you change up your roster? WHY?! It just doesn't make sense.

Anyways, tonight we play Utah. They're a bunch of scrubs too. We better beat them. I know we still have to play without Bynum but damn Mike Brown, put some energy and charisma into your men! Also, I'm not liking the Mike Brown offense strategy too much either. If anyone has seen, Lakers offense has definitely slowed down. Before with Phil Jackson, it was straight execution and to the point. The triangular offense method isn't working too well either because people are starting to catch on. Mike Brown's pass-around-the-perimeter-and-wait-for-an-opportunity-approach is pretty sad.

I'm no professional or anything as I play basketball just for a hobby and leisure, but here's my take:

Starting 5: Murphy, Kobe, World Peace, Gasol, Barnes.

Probably the strongest team they have. Bench is going to be:

Ebanks, Derrick Caracter, Andrew Goudelock, Josh McRoberts, Jason Kapono

Everyone else: 100% bench warmers.

They messed up the roster cuz they're trying to get Howard or Derron Williams or both to Dallas. The Lakers are still trying to woo Howard but I don't think Orlando will trade with the Lakers unless they agree to give up both Gasol and Bynum, which might not happen.

Oh I'm not putting any money that trade at all.

Everyone knows how upset Odom was when he heard his name was being traded and he apparently went to management and had a little exchange of words that ended up getting him traded.

I think Gasol is just keeping his mouth shut because i think he knows if he slips up they'll have him playing for some garbage team before he makes it to the door.

Bynum and Gasol for Howard? That's huh....that's a high price to pay and a lot of risk associated with it as well. Damn I wish I could be on Lakers management right now so I can beat some sense into those kids that have more money and common sense right now.

And for Christ sake's why are we still holding onto Luke Walton? Every time he comes onto the court everyone boo's him. That's not a very good sign for the franchise at all. Get rid of him. He's wasting roster space.
