You post tongue in cheek? Didn't you leave this site following 2005?

I've been a Laker fan for 38 years, and last season was the longest, most tortured season I've ever experienced. The only Laker I really enjoyed last year was Karl Malone, and if I ever thought I'd be saying that 10 years ago, I probably would seek deep psychological counseling.

I was so worn out with the a-holes fighting with each other, and all of the freakin' drama, and the ever-disappointing end, and even after the season all of Shaq's bull****, that I built this avatar for the a-hole.

I knew this team would be unwatchable, and basically I haven't been watching practically any basketball at all. Once in a while I'll sneak a peek at the end of a game, but I can't really get into it anymore. All I really nope for is Miami to get dusted by San Antonio...and having to root for a rival to kick Shaq's *** is depressing.

Well, that's it in a nutshell. Back to the hole in the ground.
http://www.basketballforum.com/los-a...too-watch.html

You tell me if you think this is a composed guy posting tongue-in-cheek.

BTW while searching for that I found a bunch of other Ron threads, where he claims the sky is falling because the Lakers would lose to a lottery team (and these were in seasons they won 50 games and had a finals appearance).

Ron predicted lottery for a struggling Laker team

I'm done with the game threads. I can't waste my evenings anymore with it. I am extremely frustrated watching these bozos play horrible basketball day in and day out.

It's really time to blow up the team and rebuild it. If that means trading such stalwarts as Horry, Shaw, and Fisher, that's just the breaks.

I will tell you right now, if they don't make any moves, they will make the lottery.

You heard it here first.

'Nuff said.
That season? Lakers won 50 games and easily made the playoffs after a slow start. Without making any trades that Ron demanded.

Maybe every post in this thread from Ron is tongue in cheek?

I'm drinking the koolaid!

The difference between you and me, Jamel, is I don't have all day long to search other people's posts in order for you to attempt to "prove a point."

You lead a sad life, man.

And they got bounced in the second round by San Antonio.

Now you tell me...you really think this Laker squad is going to bounce back like that one did?

Lol, so a poster proves you wrong and you reply by insulting him? I get as much shit from the archivist as anyone but at least I can admit when I'm wrong or blatantly contradicting myself.

And as for 2003, yeah, we got bounced in the second round. By the eventual champions. Who happened to have a top 8 player at the absolute peak of his abilities. And considering even then we still only lost due to "In, out, heartbreak!" I'm going to go ahead and stay optimistic about my team.

As usual, Ron gets personal when he's embarrassed. Its amazing how you lead an amazing life with your emotional instability. Unlike you I have a great memory, it's why I notice trends in great veteran teams that start off slow and why I notice trends in chicken little emotional posters that become unglued when things don't go there way. With that "tongue in cheek" thread being in my memory I found it rather quickly.

Granted, after I found it I still read like 6 other "sky is falling" threads of yours. My poor life.

Kool aid!

He's done it before. Last time he called me a "Internet stalker." He knows he has no retort for me exposing his contradictions. He forgot he made those posts and now says he has no time.

Yes, or I wouldn't have predicted they will win 56 games.

You were just as pessimistic in 2003. So don't tell me "it's different."

Re: 12/6/12 predict the Lakers final record

At the end of this season, someone is going to have a big, fat, shiny, new "I TOLD YOU SO" sitting in their holster.

BTW, 27 games would be a third of the season. 24 is a third of 72.

Everybody makes good and bad predictions. The annoying thing is when people are intolerants of others having a different opinion and keep saying they're koolaid drinking idiots as if they've never been wrong before.

I won't, but you can be sure those two above will (if given the opportunity).

And I will repeat, I am not sure why Jamel has such an obsession with me, but I will run with it, he is not the first poster to do so. I did start this site, after all, so I am an easy target.

Prove me wrong? Really, Luke?

I mean if I had all the time in the world as the archivist has, I guess I can find some emotional and/or "contradictory" posts by him as well. I am just not that petty, besides not having the time. That really is not what this site is about (or at least I didn't think this site was about that).

As for getting personal, I guess all you have to do is look at his posts in this thread to see that cuts both ways.

In any event, didn't mean to take this thread off the rails. I stick to my prediction of 46-36. However, looking at the standings, I change my earlier thought that 50 wins are needed for eighth place...we are looking at a 13-12 team in eighth place right now, so 46-36 could very well get us into the playoffs.

Probably because you take this elitist attitude with anyone that disagrees with you. See your first post in the thread.

I'm not as obsessed with you as I am with Luke so get over yourself. I'm an equal opportunity archivist.
