I was under the impression that Josh Smith was a pretty well known locker room cancer.

Eh, sort of. He's well known for taking shitty outside jumpers when he's supposed to be going to the boards. As far as the locker room, I think he's actually SUPPOSED to be the leader. We'll see how that works out.

I don't think they'll miss the playoffs and still have a great shot at winning the title, but it's pretty awesome watching the Lakers suck.

That's a pretty wild overreaction for a 1-4 start in the NBA.

EDIT: Nevermind, I just realized that Jerry Buss has put his son in charge of the team. I wonder when major franchises will stop doing this. I'm struggling to find a situation where handing over the keys to your priviledged offspring netted outstanding results in pro sports.

My thought: they wanted to get rid of him anyway, and they're doing it now with the easy stretch of home games coming up so they can start winning and say "see? right move."

I don't know why they didn't just fire his ass over the offseason.  They clearly wanted to dump him, so why not do it at a more reasonable time.  I doubt Phil Jackson is walking through the door.  Dantoni may not be a bad choice for them, though.

D'Antoni is apparently going to be recovering from knee surgery for rather a while apparently.

They hired D'Antoni.

Mike Brown's offense made no sense. You have two great pick n roll big men, good slasher/long range shooters in your wingmen, and a point guard who can create on the pick n roll. There are a ton of great offenses you could run with these guys, but you tell them to read and react? That's the kind of offense you run when you have too many superstars and you are too afraid to bruise egos.

They went back to basics and won two in a row under the interim coach. Let's see what D'Antoni come up with.

By the way, I despise the Lakers. At least until Kobe leaves. But even hating the team, I love basketball enough to see what the problem was. I had hoped that Brown would have stayed at least half the season to really run them into the ground.

Yeah, I know what you're saying.  I don't care for Koby much (although he has grown on me as he aged), Ron Artest is a screaming, roided up douche and Dwight Howard appears to be a whiney pied of shit.  I do like Steve Nash though, and was hoping that the Lakers would give the Heat a decent opponent in the finals.  I am also excited about Dantoni, but he's an odd choice.  He's been better at getting good results from a team with lesser talent and when he had it (in New York) he tanked.  I'm a big fan though, so hoping he does well.

Early in the season, but Rondo got in to a shoving match with Kris Humphries. It was anticipated that he might be suspended for up to 10 games. Looks like he only got 2 games. Garnett and Gerald Wallace got fines.

Rondo... still a douche.  Ohhhhh, I see.

Lin... not a bust, but I'd like to see him get 1-2 more assists per game, get into the top 10 in that category, and add maybe 2-3 more points a game to his average.

Lin can never possibly live up to the hype he received last year, because who could?  That said, he has come out of absolutely nowhere and made a name of himself in a league where it basically never happens like that.  Not a bust.

Rondo is good enough to be a douche though.  The guys is a triple-double machine.

And he's a better guy off the court than many of the other douches in the league.

Tony Parker just got his first career triple-double in an OT win over the Rockets. He has been in the league 12 years according to the story and only just now got his first one.

Jeremy Lin also finally had a good game with Harden out. He scored 38 with 7 Assists. 11-21 from the field with a career high four 3-pointers made. Also 12 of 12 from the FT line.

Particularly considering he's in the paint so much.  But he is very short and usually hits his shots when he gets into the lane.

You're happy now, wait until tomorrow when the Lakers play the wizards after Kobe had to go 40+ mins tonite while having back spasms.  They lose that one and i fully expect Kobe to start alienating Howard.

The Lakers really are a mess.  I'm not sure why they ever thought that Howard would be a huge upgrade over Bynum.  Sure, Bynum has knee issues that could seriously hamper his career long term, so it was a wise move, but when healthy it's not like Howard is significantly better than Bynum.  They need to get rid of Gasol and get themselves some young, athletic players to complement the geezers and get Nash healthy.  They need to move Gasol tomorrow and get a couple of pieces that will fit Dantoni's style of play a little better.  I'd shop Artest, too.

Or you know, hire Phil Jackson when you have the opportunity and run an offensive for which you already have a pretty much ideal lineup.
