A Lakers Blog. Thoughts, reflections, and the odd rant on the Los Angeles Lakers and the NBA (even the Clippers).

79. I have to say that I totally disagree with you on the whole face guarding issue. As long as you don't touch the face or in any way create negative contact with a player then the defensive player should be allowed a little bit of room to actually play defense. As for the game tonight. Just like P.J. says the opening minutes will set pace for the rest of the game. The Lakeshow just needs to go out there with high intensity and take it to them and not give up, for the ENTIRE 48 minutes.

I'm not afraid about Boston. Do you know what is going to happen when Pau faces KG? Check it your self:

FINES FOR FLOPPING? This is really misguided. It treats the symptom not the disease. If a player flops (and we all know it when we see it) it is up to the ref to NOT call a foul. If the refs would not fall for it, the falling by players would magically disappear.

definitely got to continue to push Tony Parker around, he hasn't done very well this series. surprising based on the lack of defense our point guards have shown throughout the year. KURT, NO MUSCKLES... stop by tonight for Live Blog. I want some fresh opinions during the game!

JD, I think that will be a good overall rule, calling a foul on the flopper, Sheed is right, "that's not basketball", (to paraphrase and leave out a few expletives). what do you think about the Battier "face guarding" technique? personally, (and not just because we are Laker/Kobe fans) I think this should also be outlawed, can't you just imagine if everyone did that? I guess it won't become an issue unless it gets to become commonly used, as it is now, it's a one off, or maybe two off if Bowen resorts to it tonight. (I'm surprised he hasn't, depserate times ya know)

The league announced it will start fining incidents of flopping next season. Sasha is going to need a significant raise to offset the inevitable hit that makes to his wallet.

some revenge against the Pistons would be nice....but I dont care who it is...becasue I am going to a Parade in Los Angles in June. I dont really see it a rivalry with the Celtics...if they make it back next year too...then yeah...maybe its reignited...but one good year after sucking (ok maybe sucking is harsh) for what...20+ years now...The Lakers are just more consitent in winning.

AM, The NBA had to admit it was a foul,otherwise they'd look like idiots. What they should have done is issue a statement from the ref(s) explaining why they didn't make the call. My guess is he/they felt a tad bit guilty for blowing the previous play and only wanted to call a foul if it clearly impacted a shot. Barry dribbling and then shooting caused enough hesitation to keep a foul from being called. How would the sporting world react to a foul o the possesion being called just as Barry steps around and hits a 3? The ref would be taking away a game-winning shot for a 2 shot possesion foul,and if Barry missed one?
