LA LAKERS FASHION SHOW - We could go into greater detail about the current fashion show and Showtime NBA era but that is deserving of more space and is too much to review at this time… this is about the new fashion show Lakers and their losing ways and the BLACK MAMBA, LUCKY WINNING JERSEY. Ohh… and we forgot…Miss Thing - NBA's ALL TIME BEST PLAYERS TEAM


Saturday, October 10, 2020


It never fails… with the LA Lakers everything is so dramatic and so HOLLYWEIRD as if their language is written with a script. Much has been said by LeBron James and other teammates what their black uniforms mean to them. They feel that it is a lucky winning uniform and when they win wearing them that they are paying tribute to Kobe Bryant since he designed the kit.

Black jersey's have been adopted by other NBA teams along with a myriad of other colors, it's a takeoff of the real BAD ASS Oakland Raiders that instilled fear in other NFL (National Football League) teams by physically whipping them death (?) no let's just say… beating them badly physically.

The Black Mamba uniforms served its proposed purpose in game 2 against the Miami Heat as Anthony Davis hit a at the buzzer a three point game winning shot. The jersey was intended to be THE FACTOR to win game five and close out the Heat 4-1 for the title BUT… they went down to defeat 111-108. So… what happened… did the Black Mamba lose its venom?

Some time ago a reader asked why we say (radio features) and write bad things about the Lakers and the answer is quite simple, we know who they are (Lakers organization). It's not about the players, it's about what's behind them. Most notably it's about their dear ruler (sorry and apologies to Kim Jong Un).

In short we are journalists NOT A FAN OF THE LAKERS. Journalists report on what happened NOT what they would like to have happened. Journalists DON'T CHEER for teams. Back in the day cheering in the press box would have had one eliminated and denied future access. Columnist write their opinions of what they know and voice their point of view. The Lakers are only interested in positive views and NOT… THE TRUTH. WE PREFER THE TRUTH!

We don't have to mention her name since that's in part what's it's all about this unreal habit of new players falling in line and saying 'I Love Jeanie' and publicize her. It's as if it's they follow a script to say those words to be a Laker. Basketball is not supposed to be a television show BUT…. the Lakers are faking Showtime as long as the players follow the script. The real I Love Jeanie TV show went off the air years ago.

Miss Thing has said on camera that if someone doesn't want to play with Kobe (Bryant) then they are losers. This topic previously came up during the free agent signings when a then in form Carmelo Anthony and Lionel Aldrich were available. LeBron James' name was mentioned but he returned home to Cleveland and she could understand that.

Miss Thing was adamantly inferring that to be a Laker one can't be a loser. The problem is as if by fate since Miss Thing made that statement and has been in control of the franchise they've done nothing but lose. Under her leadership (?) since 2013 up to entering this season the Lakers compiled a LOSING 147 Won & 329 LOSS RECORD and ZERO playoff appearances.

BUT… as they say everything has to come to an end and due to the COVID shortened and suspended season as well as a very unusual transaction when the Lakers acquired Anthony Davis who has immediately turned the franchise's losing ways around.

It's unusual because in the past the Lakers were denied by the league a trade to acquire Chris Paul. It was felt it would be unfair to the rest of the league of having a power duo of Kobe and Paul together. Paul later wound up in LA but with the Clippers instead. The Laker concession was they acquired now Brooklyn (New York) Nets coach Steve Nash who was 11 years older than Paul and near the end of his playing career.

Paul went on to have some success with the Clippers in helping them win more game and qualifying for the playoffs but as the Clips did this season they collapsed and couldn't get over the hump of the second round in the playoffs. Nash was unlucky and as a Laker he suffered injuries resulting in not playing much and became a wasted acquisition but a nice person.

With a dismal history behind Miss Thing including numerous firings Magic Johnson quitting without notice being the president of the franchise and having to sell off a portion of the organization Miss Thing has her first chance of being what she thinks she is…. A WINNER. That's largely due to Davis and his massive contribution to the team.

As a former high school guard to a now very nimble NBA 6'10" center/forward he is the straw that stirs the drink should the Lakers win the title.

As the Miami Heat president and former Lakers coach Pat Riley said to an attacking media looking for dirt that surrounded him when he returned to LA in 1991 as the coach of the New York Knicks, "You can't take away what I've done,".

Riley was referring to his history as a winner and coaching and managing Lakers players egos to four NBA titles during the 80's. This can't take away statement remains burned in my mind since that time consequently it currently applies to many former players and coaches BUT… it now applies to LeBron James.

There is no question regarding James' talent as a player he is most certainly one of the best of all time BUT… like Kobe he needed some big time help to secure a championship. When James joined the Lakers he was supposed to be the end all and solution to the Lakers losing ways. He wasn't, and the Lakers failed to qualify for the playoffs.

James had questionable injuries that had him sidelined. One obvious factor was that the three rising stars of the franchise couldn't fit in with the dominate ball control games of James. The result was that the King sulked, sat on the bench and (before COVID) distanced himself for the other younger players.

The end result was the three young upcoming stars Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart were traded to the New Orleans Pelicans for the then disheartened Pelican, Davis. It was as if the lord not only had time to save Neon Deion Sanders current unspectacular life but he had the answer to the Lakers losing too many games problems.

During the Kobe era the free agent answer was Pau Gasol became the glue to cement the Lakers to two consecutive NBA titles in 2009 and 2010. Bryant couldn't win a title without a key big man and second offensive threat; it was Gasol that fulfilled the bill.

But to be real about this, James has accomplished his success in the sissy ball era of the NBA. It's a time when the game became a 3 point outside shooting game that opened up access of the lanes to drive to the hoop. It was an outcome of the extended stretch defensive game, the D is now looser.

Faking being fouled by falling down when breathed on is another pet peeve of mine that I feel has damaged the game. Being relevant, James could not accomplish what he has when the game was BASKETBALL and you get your ass kicked if you come inside THE LANE. Now the 21st Century NBA is about playing don't touch me SISSY BALL.

It must be noted that the NBA has a video on its channel of an interview with former NBA great Bob Pettit who is on our ALL TIME NBA TEAM. In the video Pettit revealed that he had an arm injury that required a cast.

He noted that when the injury healed he cut a portion of the cast off so he could slide it on and off. Pettit said that he wore the cast for two years. In retrospect was a weapon which helped propel his defensive skills and instilled fear in his opponents to not come inside the lane or you may get a blast with a cast.

The NBA has since toughened up its rules to protect the players from injuries but it also softened up the quality of the game. Now it's not basketball BUT it's… Showtime you all.

We could go into greater detail about the current fashion show and Showtime NBA era but that is deserving of more space and is too much to review at this time… this is about the new fashion show Lakers and their losing ways and the BLACK MAMBA, LUCKY WINNING JERSEY. Ohhh… and we forgot…Miss Thing.
