Quantcast

 I loved seeing the Faker fans turn on their team as they realized that the Celtics were just the better team.   It is amazing that they would have the nerve to complain about a call after Crawful handed them the championship last year.  The bad calls went both ways in this one and the Fakers still managed 9 more FT's than the Celtics.  No way they could blame this on the refs.  I also loved that there were Celtics fans in Staples Center.   I know you'll enjoy today's Comments from the Other Side.  What's your favorite comment? 

This is no doubt a statement game, the squad owes us one for that crap they put out on Christmas. The building will be jumping and there won't be no " late" arriving crowd. That's why I love this game being on Sunday.

Celtic fans still are delusional to think they have a clear cut advantage.......they DON'T.

We only won the finals because Perkins was out according to all of Boston so I hope those words are echoing in all of our players heads, beat these leprechauns LETS GO LAKERS!!!!!!!!!

Dirty slime green bastards. I hope Bynum and Gasol get it DONE down low rather than punk out like against the Queens. This will also help us catch up to their record if a Finals rematch were to occur.

We're winning this easily. By 12.

Shaq always looks less washed up playing against us than he does against the rest of the league. So wouldn't surprise me at all if Bynum and Gasol look completely weak and soft and Kobe ends up jacking up 30 shots.

Boston better be on a two game losing streak by the end of this game, not us.


$10 we see Matt Barnes run off the bench to do a stone cold stunner on paulina pierce!

We can't beat the Kings..Boston will destroy us

How many minutes will it take Artest and Pierce to get double technicals? This is the best match up of the game. I love when Ron pushes Paulina around.

Lakers, one of the best (if not the best by now) in rebounding vs Celtics, one of the worst (if not the worst by now) rebounding team = Lakers win by +12.

I am concerned about Pau in day games. He is from Spain and they like to sleep in and stay up late at night.

This team doesn't believe in big regular season games. This one obviously will mean more to the Celtics... I just hope we don't approach this game the same way we approached the Miami game.

It looks like the nba is serving up an embarrassing loss to us: Joe Crawford Marat Kogut Tom Washington

Judging by recent officials doing Laker's games, I just knew they had already penciled in the fixers for this game.

I for some reason think the lakers will blow them out

If they call fouls like they should and dont allow those punks to do their dirty tricks on our bigs we will vanish them from the earth. If refs allow those low blows, kidney punches and etc then we got nothing to do.

Everybody is kinda looking over this.... Shaq is gonna be playing at the Staples Center wearing Celtic Green! I dont know about yall, but thats a cardinal SIN in my eyes! I hope he gets booed out the damn building!

I hope Ron pushes KG to the floor like he did last year in the season game at Boston,I really want it.

Artest, please eat Pierce alive. I hate him as much as you hated being sober.

Boston is the better team so far, hope we can beat them to make some kind of rare statement.

I can accept losing if it's not due to lopsided officiating, but you have to be honest with yourself when you see it happen. Joey's rep didn't come out of the blue, it was earned. Tom Washington too.

Damn. In the pre-game show they said there is some green in the arena and a good showing of Boston fans are at the game.

Almost tip off. Don't even think of leaving ray open, and please stop embarrassing us on national TV!

I dont see lakers wining this gosal is going to have anther no show game and I have a feeling Kobe going to have a bad shooting game like he always dose against this team and the lakers dont no how to beat the elite

Ray is gonna burn fish

The Celtics D show how ready they are for this game. Everyone on that starting 5 knows how to guard the triangle perfectly

Lol, with one pinky Shaq fended off Artest

I just flat-out cannot stand Pierce's wussy, flopping style of play.

Uh oh...old man Pierce grabbing his hip.... Get the wheelchair.

Refs helping the Lakers out

is staples center german for "church?" so damn quiet.

Staples is dead terrible crowd

Crappy, bandwagon L.A. crowds.

Stern is really ruining this game. I do not want to see Ray Allen and Kobe on the bench because of ticky tack fouls....crazy

Artest getting owned on defense and terrible on offense...I'm starting to hate his guts.

Garnett is DIRTY. He plays dirty. If there's a player that needs to be clothes lined, it's him.

Rondo's' shot is so ugly that his midrange jumper clanks like a 3-ball attempt

I hate Pau

kendrick perkins can wish you happy birthday, and look pissed

His lips would crack and he'd bleed out if he smiled.

This team really sucks

GASOL IS SOFTTTTTTT!!!!!!!! Uselessssly SOFT!

Elbow looks pretty hard

FINALLY GASOL USED HIS ELBOW. There you go big fella.

Thank god kg got cracked

Wow the Celtics even brought fake blood this time

That ain't blood on KG, he's just sweatin Gatorade

He doesn't bleed green, ha! Ring chaser!

These commentators are annoying. We get it. Ray Allen is an amazing shooter. EVERY Boston game they have to keep repeating how amazing he is. I really don't give a [expletive].

Rondo never shows up against us were lucky

How the hell do you let that fat slob get his own board.

Seriously, they can't even stay in front of 76 year old Pierce? Don't waste a great quarter by Kobe, close it out the right way.

Perkins and Duncan are 2 of the best post defenders in the game and Bynum has no issue playing against both..

They should’ve cut KG’s gigantic head bandage into a shamrock.

They shoulda just cut his head off and saved a bandage

Man I wish someone could punch Garnett in that ugly mug of his without a suspension

Damn...this Kobe is scary if we get this Kobe in the finals against Boston, they have no chance

We're now witnessing the Lakers in an aggressive mode.

Yeah like the Celts are the only ones who make us be in that mode

Big Baby looking like Prime Barkley out there. Put a body on him

Glad that the so called "stopper" Tony Allen and James Posey were gone from Celtics

4-point lead, let's keep it going

The absence of Tony Allen's defense off the bench on Kobe is UNDERRATED!

Kobe Destroying the Celtics

Get Ron out, he's not right.

That wasn't much of a foul by Shaq

Have to say refs giving us some calls today

Pierce playing like this is 2002

Well that lead did not last long did it..should have known these old geezers couldn't stand the pressure

What the heck is wrong with this team blowing leads

Luke and Ron suck...who is supposed to stop Pierce?



Pierce could go into wheelchair basketball after he retires and abuse handicapped ppl

Our BIGS are awful. They're not elite. They're not allstars. They're borderline JOURNEYMEN! I swear, I hear any hype our bigs again consider their credibility GONE!

Amazing! Fisher rarely gets that call!! Congrats Fish!

That wasn't a foul. Refs gave us two points.

Thank God we have Van Gundy and the ESPN/ABC crew to point out multiple times (even replaying it to the commercial break) that Fish may have flopped on that play

Perkins with illegal screens, the Boston offense is based on illegal screens... So I don't mind if they actually call them.

All the fake thuggery of the Celtics works for them.

For those that aren't worried, just keep in mind games 6 & 7 will be in Boston this year..

How does Pierce do it. He looks out of shape and past his prime, and looks like he's never been to a gym, yet he fills it up with Mamba like it's nothing. What's his secret?

I will never understand how Glen Davis is ALWAYS able to shred Odom and Gasol at the same time. Never fails.

We lost Game 5 in Boston because Gasol & Odom couldn't defend Big Baby in the post..

Wonder what it's like to have a PF that plays aggressive on both ends of the floor

Haha Gasoft getting dominated by a baby

All this talent and we're still a one trick pony. Kobe or bust.

Lakers don't do too well playing from ahead, we are going to kill them this quarter.

Lakers are putting up a decent fight, but they’re trailing. This is a must critical win, despite it being January

Celts may be better than us this yr if they really have solved the rebounding issue

I hate how good Glen Davis is against us. It doesn't make any sense.

At least that fat sh*t will be overpaid by next year and in some other team

I gotta respect the fact that Boston has at least 4 starters with Kobe's mentality. Now they don't have Kobe's skill level, but they all got that killer mode that Kobe has and nobody else on the Lakers have.

If Barnes were healthy this would be a different ball game.

Its unbelievable how LO has no answer for Big Baby.

I hear more cheering than usual are their celtic fans in Staples

C's shots are looking easy. Ours are looking hard. Not good.

Man, I'm so mad at this ****!!!!!! Bryant is deviating from the gameplan. He should be feeding lazynum and Gasoft!!!!!!

I'm shocked that the C's are actually getting called for some of these moving screens. They've been doing it for years and never get called.

Pierce has this defensive ability to hold Kobe without actually holding him with his hands. It is a foul, but it almost doesn't look like it.

The refs are handing the Celtics this game.

If we had refs on our side we would be up by at least 20+ points. And Kobe got fouled by pierce on that other play

Boston's frontcourt > la's frontcourt

Thank you Lakers. For embarrassing the city of Los Angeles on national TV yet again. Your stupid "turn it on when the playoffs start" better work.

I'm sick and tired of Gasol..memphis can have him back

Exactly. Phil is blowing this game with some of his poor coaching decisions.

Sick of Gasol. Sick of Artest. Sick of Paul Peirce.

I think Phil is getting tired of Artest....wouldn't be surprise if he's gone before the trade deadline..

Garnett is OWNING gasol!!!



Fed up with gasol and bynum. When old *** KG is outrunning you down court that bad.

Put artest in the game and let him fight at least, would be a good entertainment

It is officially time to panic. Unless you think Matt Barnes is going to come back and fix everything, we have some serious work to do...

Bynum is truly stupid, he has an excuse. Pau, there is no excuse, he looks like he barely cares out there.

Celitics get away with more fouls than any other team I've ever watched. They ride up under you when you are shooting to take out your legs, set moving screens, and get away with more hand checks than anybody else does in a year, let alone a game

Props to the C's...they showed up and the Lakers did not.

KG's jumper is one of the greatest I have ever seen for a big man

Another Sunday ruined because the Lakers suck on national TV.

Kobe fouled but not in the act of shooting. He's always in the act of shooting!

The Lakers are done. They straight out suck.

I'm also excited that this season is pj's last season with us. Hate the triangle

Gasol and Artest KILLED us today. I am convinced nothing is physically wrong with Pau... he's just mentally weak.

Let's face it, this is not a "wait til the playoffs issue", this is a "we're not a top team" issue.

29 rebounds for KG, Shaq, Perkins, and Davis
18 rebounds for LO, Pau, and Drew
They got manhandled on the boards.

Gasol got schooled by Glen Davis tonight, who is 4 inches shorter than him. Thats inexcusable.

Pau, Ron and Fisher for Melo and Billups

50 year-old Garnett making our bigs look like children.

I like doc as a coach - he is a great motivator and runs amazing sets, especially when they need a basket. Phil is too laid back

These embarrassing losses help the Lakers in the long run, because now they'll seek revenge instead of going in all high and mighty.

As always, Celtics' d was annoyingly good and our bigs got shut down

I give this game to big baby...he is impressive for his size

Hey Mitch KupCake why don't you wake up and relize this team is done. West was calling them out so you'd et a clue

That tub of lard can finish like no other real talk. 2 bodies 3 bodies he still gets that point blank finish.

Celtics are the better team

I hope Pau and Bynum grow a sack by the time we play them again at Boston. I also hope all of the Celtics drop dead. Seriously.

I'm out;. I seriously need a drink.

No more of this “wait til the playoffs BS”. We havent proved SHIT this year and we just got humiliated by a Celtics team on our homecourt where we actually tried to win the game. Celts are better this year because KG>Pau, when he’s healthy and because Shaq neutralized enough of Bynum to make him not as effective.

Also because we allow shorter, worse players (Kendricks/baby) to outwork our bigs.

they actually play like bigs thats why

I am legitimately worried about us now

I hate watching us suck

Our defense is simply not as good as theirs as is our rebounding. This is why I think they are better

cant believe the fattest (Davis) and shortest (Nate) destroyed us

I'd rather the Lakers lose to SAS then to Boston in the Finals

Somebody on here said we'd stomp the Celtics a few days ago...
Well, don’t us Laker fans look like fools right now…

    "I'd rather the Lakers lose to SAS then to Boston in the Finals" That says it all right there. These fans know there will be no Faker 3-peat this year.

    I can't believe how the first 75% of the comments are talking about how LA is getting all the calls, and then the last few talk about how Boston is getting the calls. They got the calls most of the game, stop whining!

    And shame on them for wanting Phil Jackson gone, he is one of the best coaches the game has ever seen and they are counting the days until he retires.

  2. Three Toe says:

    YES! My fav's:

    I am concerned about Pau in day games. He is from Spain and they like to sleep in and stay up late at night.

    kendrick perkins can wish you happy birthday, and look pissed

    All this talent and we're still a one trick pony. Kobe or bust.

    Let's face it, this is not a "wait til the playoffs issue", this is a "we're not a top team" issue. (the realization sets in)

    I was really hoping for some anger towards Odom when he fouled baby at halfcourt before the buzzer. oh well, still great stuff!

    7."The refs are handing the Celtics this game."
    -like always, blame the refs - even when Kobe had 23434 FTs!!

    8."Let's face it, this is not a "wait til the playoffs issue", this is a "we're not a top team" issue."
    -VERY true.lol

    9."Somebody on here said we'd stomp the Celtics a few days ago...
    Well, don’t us Laker fans look like fools right now…"
    -Yes. You all look like fools!

    I also like how the Laker 'FANS' were talking shit about Gasol, Bynum & Odom throught the game! They have no type of Loyalty to their own guys.
    And why did they keep saying Matt Barnes wouldve gave them a W? WTF?? Really?? hahaha!!

  4. kuliling says:

    this just made my day! I've been waiting for this since this morning. it's so worth it! Thanks!

  5. kunzangcj says:

    haa i love reading comments from other side...
    below are my favs.
    "Lakers, one of the best (if not the best by now) in rebounding vs Celtics, one of the worst (if not the worst by now) rebounding team = Lakers win by +12."
    i hope this person has learned not to judge the celtics...we jst out beat dem on rebound!!!!..so yeah go figure who is best and who isnt!!!

    "How does Pierce do it. He looks out of shape and past his prime, and looks like he's never been to a gym, yet he fills it up with Mamba like it's nothing. What's his secret?"
    the secrect is in ur comments DUMBASS...Pierce is in SHAPE, still in PRIME...goes to GYM.....but even if he werent all dat he'd beat ur Mamba..
    so maybe the answer is ....MAMBA JST SUCKS IN FRONT OF CELTICS!!!!

    "I gotta respect the fact that Boston has at least 4 starters with Kobe's mentality. Now they don't have Kobe's skill level, but they all got that killer mode that Kobe has and nobody else on the Lakers have."
    NO NONE OF CELTICS HAVE KOBES MENTALITY...
    we play TEAM game..Kobe plays Kobe game!!!
    we dont need kobes skill level..we still beat the lakers!!!!

    dey got this right
    No more of this “wait til the playoffs BS”. We havent proved SHIT this year and we just got humiliated by a Celtics team on our homecourt where we actually tried to win the game. Celts are better this year because KG>Pau, when he’s healthy and because Shaq neutralized enough of Bynum to make him not as effective.

    hhahahahahahaha LMAO...
    GOO CELTICS...ALL DAY...EVERYDAY!!!

    GREAT compilation of 'Comments from the other side', and very nice ending with "Well, don’t us Laker fans look like fools right now…"

    Have to say, that the one I liked the most was - "I am concerned about Pau in day games. He is from Spain and they like to sleep in and stay up late at night."

  7. tb727 says:

    This is always great, today especially great. I feel this one couldn't have even been from a Flaker fan:

    "Boston is the better team so far, hope we can beat them to make some kind of rare statement."

    You mean some Laker fans AREN'T trolls?! Stunning!

    I just love to hear the Lakers fan bitch moan. As for my favorite post...... to many to choose from. Thanks for a good laugh.

  9. RoswellSounds says:

    Really entertaining. These LaLa phonies never saw two games in a row. Totall clueless when it comes to basketball, they just watch the game to see those ridiculous movie stars seated in the front rows of that ugly stadium.
    For fuck´s sake, I can´t stand those colours! Better dead than yellow. Like someone said in a previous post, these retarded fans have no loyalty toward their "team", if you can call that one-man show a team. It looks like a circus performance. Hey, It´s LA, right? Next earthquake will sink that place, mark my words.

    Spurs, get ready! We´re waiting for you in june. Celtic4Life, my friends!!!!

  10. Anonymous says:

    what the hell are these idiots talking about? they got to the line twenty times more than we did in game seven and THEY are complaining about lopsided officiating? gasol gets every flop call and gets to punch rondo in the face in the final seconds of game seven, and THEY complain about officiating? again, another confirmation that LA is the worst place in the world. the smog is one thing, but it's the people that make it a living hell.

  11. Anonymous says:

    Great collection .. What amazes me is the lack of loyalty and the balls to stand behind their players .. Hey we aren't like u nor are big three like Kobe coz we believe in green and stand behind green even when we lose coz we know the boys have HEART ..

  12. Karl says:

    I was surprised at how they gave up on Gasol. He's the main reason they won two titles besides Kobe of course. He had a terrible game but way to jump off the bandwagon. I would hope none of us would say athat about Pierce or Garnett or any of the Celtics stars after they had a bad game.

  13. TK says:

    Two things that fans around the NBA need to stop complaining about and just accept:

    1) The Celtics may be older than average, but they're not losing speed. Pierce, Allen and KG are just straight-up good. Stop thinking you'll run on them, because you won't.

    2) And Baby is legit. It's the truth. Yeah, he's hefty, but he's a legit competitor. So make fun of his weight all you want, but stop being so shocked when he outperforms your team. He did it in the playoffs last year, he's been doing it all season this year. He's the real deal.

    Also, this really cements my opinion of Lakers fans being the worst in the league. Man, they turn on their team in a hurry. How you can rip on Gasol is mystifying to me, but they just lash out at everyone.

  14. Anonymous says:

    Been a lot of green everywhere we go

    Some green in the arena and a good showing of Boston fans....
    Is Staples Center German for "church"?

    Is there anything like a silenced away crowd? Well maybe the dulcet tones of the green fans in the Staples Center!

  15. Three Toe says:

    TK, your 2 points are dead on. If there's a common thread among uninformed commentors (besides the despise most have for Pierce and KG), it's that we are too old and Big Baby sucks. ALL of our aging all-stars seem to be better now than last year, even the ones that weren't with us last season (aka Shaq). And Big Baby is just a good player getting better.

    As for people turning on their team, let's not get hypocritical. Throughout our team's history, we have bashed many a Celtic (Rasheed Wallace comes to mind). There are weak spots to Gasol's game just like any player, and when they get exploited by your rival on national TV, you are likely to make rash reactions, no matter which city you live in. With that said, I'm glad we won, otherwise it probably would have been open season on poor Nate around here.

  16. Tim says:

    One of the very few comment that made sense,

    "For those that aren't worried, just keep in mind games 6 & 7 will be in Boston this year.."

  17. Jenda says:

    Kobe fouled but not in the act of shooting. He's always in the act of shooting!

    and also the Pau, Artest and Fisher for Melo and Billups. Denver GM would have to be held hostage or the buffoon to do such a mistake.

  18. Hilary says:

    "They should’ve cut KG’s gigantic head bandage into a shamrock."

    This actually made me laugh. Maybe next time?

    Gotta love Comments from the Other Side.

  19. Anonymous says:

    great stuff so long as we win

  20. Great comments everyone. My favorites were these two

    "How does Pierce do it. He looks out of shape and past his prime, and looks like he's never been to a gym, yet he fills it up with Mamba like it's nothing. What's his secret?"
    (His secret is heart. It is a foreign concept to the Lakers. )

    And this one:
    "That ain't blood on KG, he's just sweatin Gatorade"
    (I loved the way KG went over to Crawford with blood dripping down his face instead of going right to the sideline to make the point that he was indeed fouled and elbowed in the head even though Crawful didn't call it.)

    This one:
    "It looks like the nba is serving up an embarrassing loss to us: Joe Crawford Marat Kogut Tom Washington"
    (uh, Crawful was picked to give the Fakers an advantage if anything. The last time he called a game between these two teams they got 21 FT's in the 4th quarter to only 6 for the Celtics. In this one it wasn't quite as obvious as they only took 9 more for the game. But the refs definitely weren't favoring the Celtics.)

    And this one
    "Rondo never shows up against us were lucky"
    (This guy must have been sitting next to Bill Walton who said that Rondo was a no show LOL. Rondo was anything but a no show. He ran the team perfectly.)

    And this comment totally cracked me up:
    "Bynum is truly stupid, he has an excuse. Pau, there is no excuse, he looks like he barely cares out there."
    (Glad Bynum has an excuse LOL )

    And this one:

    "Also because we allow shorter, worse players (Kendricks/baby) to outwork our bigs.

    they actually play like bigs thats why"
    (Again, it's called HEART!! A foreign concept to the Fakers)

    and finally this one:
    "Somebody on here said we'd stomp the Celtics a few days ago...
    Well, don’t us Laker fans look like fools right now…"
    (Yes they do!!)
