Cue The Lakers Excuses

Without even seeing the MRI, the preliminary word is that Andrew Bynum will be out until March:

The preliminary diagnosis is that Bynum suffered a sprained right knee against Memphis Saturday and will miss the next six weeks. But it could be longer, and the damage could be more serious, pending results of an MRI taken yesterday.

We’ve heard the excuses a million times before.  And if the Celtics beat the Lakers without Bynum, then we’ll hear them again.  But if you really have the best TEAM… you’ll be able to overcome injuries.  The Celtics overcame no KG to beat the hottest team in the league and withstand a low-post barrage from Al Jefferson.  That’s because Paul Pierce stepped up.

I hope Bynum comes back sooner rather than later.  I don’t want to hear that excuse when I get back from the parade.

  1. As soon as I heard bynum went down (again) I knew the excuses were coming. It isn’t our fault the guy is now officially injury prone. Makes that big deal you signed him to a little less comforting now, considering he’s messed up both knees now?

  2. Karma for sending Gerald Wallace to the ER.

    I bet the Fakers are practicing their flops for calls right now. They’re gonna need all the help/calls they can get.

  3. Losers fans have dished out enormous shit about Pierce “faking” the knee injury. Suppose for argument’s sake that they were being extra cautious with the wheelchair and Pierce was generous with the wincing. I’d rather have a guy who fakes knee injuries and can still play and lead his team to a chip than a guy who has fragile knees and, to this point, is pure hype and expectation. In no way am I saying that Pierce actually faked anything, but I am saying Pierce has achieved results. Glass Bynum hasn’t done shit.

    On a side note, I loved the “it’s all my fault” look on Kobe’s face right after it happened.

  4. AbovetheRim,
    The Lakers aren’t the ones that need all the calls/help to win….

  5. Speaking of calls, I’m surprised the NBA MVP Violet Palmer didn’t somehow eke out a win for Minny yesterday. Our little girl is growing up right before our eyes!

  6. On another note the 85-86 celtics still have the best home record 40-1.
    Looking at cleavelands schedule I hate to say it but I think they’ve got a good shot at breaking it.
    L.A. and Boston are the only teams that really have a shot at beating them at home boston plays them on their 40th home game la this week.
    This is one record even the bulls couldn’t touch although they missed it by one game one year.
    I think this celtic team could go 41-0 at home if they really focused maybe next year in the mean time somebody beat cleaveland at home please.

  7. Rodger in Illinois:

    if I recall correctly, I believe that one game that the C’s lost in ’85-’86 was at the Hartford Civic Center, when they used to play like 5 or 6 games down there.

    as far as the “record” goes, let them have it. it will mean nothing when they don’t improve upon their paltry 15-9 record on the road, and thus not earning the top seed. it’s a regular season record and therefore it’s about as meaningful as *gulp* the Pats’ 16-0 reg. season.

  8. ps Bynum will be out 8-12 weeks with torn MCL

    so definitely get ready for the excuses.

  9. I’m surprised Laker fans aren’t here making them yet.

  10. coobs it was dec 6th 1985 against trailblazers portland won 121-103 at the garden.
    I’m trying to find a box score for that game.

  11. This guy is injury prone, so doesn’t that factor into the equation when you measure his worth? Cannot use that excuse because that is WHO he is. Oft injured.

    Besides we could use the excuse that LA got Gasol for free while we gave up an All-Star in Al Jefferson. WE have THE excuse if we ever lose.

    Besides maybe it is Payback for 80’s with Bird nd McHale were often hurt. Maybe BOSTON would be the team of the 80’s if that did not occur. If Laker fans will say that Boston had a better team in the 80’s and the Laker’s got lucky because of those injuries than maybe I will give them this one. Otherwise they should be quiet.

  12. What excuses? We haven’t lost yet…have we?

    Its not an excuse when its simply an undeniable fact. When Bynum is in the line-up we are a much stronger team and Pau is a much more effective player…not excuses…fact.

    We can’t beat the Celtics in a 7 game series without him…I believe that to be fact as well…not an excuse…I wouldn’t expect you to beat us in a 7 game series without KG…

    Does this suck losing him 2 years in a row? Yes…Will the Lakers roll over and die? Well…if last year is any indication…we’ll still get to the Finals…and yes, I DO think we can still win in the Finals…

    NBA Finals
    Lakers 4 Cavs 2

    Go Lakers

  13. Then it is true that the Celtics were the team of the 80’s/ If McHale and Bird were healthy, we would have won all championships games against the Laker’s. The 80’s Laker’s are a fraud

  14. you called the twolves the hottest team in the nba. wow

  15. title-saurus…YOU are a fraud…clearly you are brainless and still posing as a functioning human.

    Can you please back up the fairy tale of which you speak?

    Go Lakers

  16. thetitleisours

    can you show me what year Jefferson was an all-star?

  17. Damn inferno – I was really looking forward for both our teams to have full squads on the court. Really too bad. Without Bydumb you still have a very good team. Well, until Lakers Celtics Part 2 in June.

  18. Hey inferno – You better not lose to your bro-in-law tonight (NY Dnicks)

  19. Hey infagno,

    I am just telling you that when the Laker fans use excuses, they should realize that the other side has them too.
    If you say the Lakers would have won with Bynum than i can say Boston would have won if healthy too.

    Think your a big shot with those words huh? The only idiot is you who can not understand an obvious point. Sorry to make you rub more than two neurons together

  20. Hey Balt, he may not be an official All-Star but he has been playing like one the last few years. Very obvious how good this guy is.

  21. Me too Santos…the game loses a little luster, but truthfully I figured you’d hold serve and win at home anyway…

    Go Lakers

  22. And so the whining begins….

  23. Right Nora..? Why are Lakers fans even here..? The only logical explanations I can think of are:

    1)They are closet Celts fans.
    2)They are so unsure of their own team, they try to get an edge by obsessing over their rivals.
    3)They are such dicks that even the people on their own team’s blogs don’t want them around….

  24. Kobe just scored 61. This is why the excuses don’t hold water. Lakers still have Kobe.

  25. Nora…KWAPT…

    Here’s why I’m here…

    1) One of my life long Celtic friends asked me to check out the site a couple of years ago
    2) I am very sure and confident of MY team, so much so, I don’t feel the need to go to a Laker site just to be agreed with by 30 other people-conflict and friction is much more fun…
    3) See anser 2)

    …and Nora…TEAMS win Championships, not individuals…We shouldn’t need Kobe to score 61 to win.

    Go Lakers

  26. Losing Bynum only makes it fair anyhow as you got Gasol as a gift from the league. Didn’t see you guys give up any “Al Jefferson” types

  27. Right, Titty-sore…it makes it “fair”…obviously you are an ignorant swine…or your under the age of 13…go tell your mom you’ll be moving out of the basement soon, you mouth-breather…

    Al Jefferson is a decent player…that’s all…if he’s so good …give KG back.

    Go Lakers

  28. Hey Inferno, that is where you are going for eternity you jerk. So fresh those Cyber-bully “mom” comments that millions of other idiot posters make. Are you proud being so unoriginal?

    KG is a better player than Al Jefferson is now, but the sky is the limit for him. The Celtics gave up some good players and the league allowed one of most sleazy trades in history with Gasol. Glad you Laker fans have the league in your back pocket. You will need it

    Come to a Boston bar sometime and talk to me that way pal

  29. And by the way Laker trolls, instead of coming here and insulting, why don’t you try and come up with reasonable counter arguments to the points we are making here. Or don’t you have any other than insults?

    Show us where you think we are wrong. Otherwise don’t waste our time

  30. Title-whore…the only time I make comments like that is when they apply…here they apply…

    Making intelligent counter-points to pointless commentary like yours is a herculean task…I’ll try harder…

    Pick the bar, buddy…or should I just go to Chuck-E Cheese and call out for the “Franks and Beans” guy…

    Let me know…in the mean-time, calm down and enjoy the game…

    Go Lakers

  31. In-FAG-no

    I am ready for you anytime.

    What is so difficult about admitting that if one team wants to make an excuse for losing, than the other team has them too? Cannot Boston fans say that the oly reason we lost to the Lakers was because of the injuries to Bird and Walton just like Laker fans say they lost ONLY because Bynum is out?

    Please explain why this is herculean??

    I didn’t start with the idiot insults – YOU DID
