I've got some quotes from L*kers Ground to fire everybody up for tonight (not that anybody here needs encouragement!)
Lakers take this game easily. They are going to embarrass Portland tonight.
Last game it was all about ending the streak. Psychologically they were way to amped up and didnt' play their game. This game their heads are on straight - its about the playoffs - its about establishing their dominance over all comers. With the full squad back its no contest.
Pryz is just begging for a beat down. I hope Pryz eats his words painfully, and that Mike Rice eats his microphone in similar manner.
112-102 Lakers in a game dominated by the Lakers from start to finish. It's getting close to the playoffs. They are coming out of the "toying with teams" mode. No worries at all.
(bleep) the Blazers. I wanna see Kobe make Roy look like a clown tonight, and Drew/Pau/LO need to wipe that smirk off Pryzbilla's face. They need to embarrass them in front of their fans and teach them to respect the big boys of the West!
(and keep using hard fouls to piss those pansies off)
The jailblazers and their fans became so annoying lately.
Let's beat them on the mouth.
With Bynum back, I'm fully expecting them to go up to Portland and play a statement game. I think it'll be a Laker 20+ blowout.
I could see the Blazers trying to go after our players and trying to hurt them due to the whole Rudy thing that happened last time. Even though that wasn't even a dirty play at all, everyone in Blazers world seems to think it was horrible.
To be fair, there's plenty of objective and even respectful talk about the Blazers on the L*ker message boards. But you don't wanna know about that, do ya?
