    One of the greatest in his prime was the Hawk, Connie Hawkins, banned for an alleged connection to a point shaving scandal in which he was proved innocent. By the time he got to pro ball, he was over the hill.

    Chat was last Thursday June 11th.

    CONNIE HAWKINS BOOK “FOUL” IS A GREAT READ. LOT OF NBA HISTORY..

  • OAKlifer

    LONG LIVE KERMITT WASHINGTON!!!!!! and THE HAWK!!!!

    and Rudy……

  • exlaraiderseasonticketholder

    I must admit I was wrong about the Laker’s! I said Laker’s in 6. How could I blow that one? LOL

  • hwnrdr

    Many people have predicted 6, but somehow, I didn’t think that Kobe wanted it to go back home! That ws a statement!

  • priesttj

    DR J’s game was copied from Connie Hawkins. The games with Connie vs Wilt were epic. While Connie was not a C he would challenge Wilt at the rim.

    And that is the era that I speak so highly of because it gets short shrift from the Michael Jordan era commentators that have no knowledge of the history of the game. Those players back then were every bit as good if not better fundamentally.

    The weight training now helps the present player in terms of physical prowess. But if those players were as aware of and took advantage of the training regimen of the present players WOW!!

    No doubt bro….. even in the NFL it seems those days were predicated off fundementals now days kids just get big and fast and either out- muscle someone or out run thier opponents. For instince every “great” gaurd now days palms the ball..and travels….and whines…ect. The old days of players learning how to play the game the right way are over…I coach football at what I consider an intermeadit level and at that level the kids already know if thier good enough (size/speed/atletisism) they dnt work as hard at getting better like the kids who arent gifted with those thing’s they work on the fundementals alot more…sad IMHO

    Good job Mitch Kupchak…you finally have the Jerry West monkey off your back. (those first two championships didn’t count for you)

    Lakers in 6 was my prediction. 1 in Orlando and close the show in L.A.

  • exlaraiderseasonticketholder

    From Shaq’s twitter to Kobe: “Shaq, how’s my ass taste?”

    Exla, Bo, Jhill, and all the other Lakers fans in here…this is a great site for Lakers’ news:

    Dakota, thanks for doing your part to secure the trophy, as hard as it was for you.

    ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    I must admit, I loathed, detested, and even reviled Kupchak for years. Starting from the time his knee imploded (Showtime with Kupchak would have been unbeatable), I felt Mitch was a wannabe. Jerry West had spoiled me, and when he left for Memphis so Mitch could get his time in the sun I WAS PO’D.

    I take it all back. The Gasol and Ariza additions were just as pivotal as drafting Magic, Kobe, signing Shaq, Byron Scott (sorry Norm), and all the other genius moves by Zeke from Cabin Creek.

    No matter how many championships the Lakers win, they will never surpass the glory that is Al Davis’ Raiders, the “Team of All Decades”.

  • http://www.blogcdn.com/www.fanhouse.com/media/2008/04/desmond-howard-425-sm.jpg Bo Schembechler Jackson

    And yes, thanks Gawd we got rid of Shaq. Even if Odom leaves it was worth it. My Chicago friends used to tell me that Shaq would be bagging groceries if he were six inches shorter. And deep down I knew they were right.

  • http://http://www.mensa.org/ Albert Bigelow Paine

    If Shaq were six inches shorter he would have been in the NFL, at worst he would have been a police officer or a soldier.

    Ironies for the Laker’s Elgin Baylor. Never won an NBA title. Averaged 38.3 ppg the year Wilt ave 50. Day after he retired and replaced by Jim McMillan, the Lakers started the record 33 game win streak(still standing) and the team lead by Wilt, West and coached by Bill Sharman wins 1st L.A. era Championship.

  • DMunoz 26

    Forget about Kobe, Shaq, Michael, Pippen, it was all Phil Jackson. None of the players would have won without the Zen-Master.

  • Raider Dell

    Congrats Dakota

    Yes I remember the Jersey bet, the person you bet wimping out. You still honored the loss bet by applying the bet to someone else. You have persevered to that ugly loss series to those Celts and stayed with it, less many furniture items, to be a happy Laker Championship fan today.

    Just proves how sports can change from one year to the next.

    To all furniture dealers, bring down the sale signs, Dakota is not shopping.

    EXLA

    Congrats also, and to others I missed.

    As to the Magic fans, your players are good, skills have to be improved,you will be in the final soon again.

    Later

  • exlaraiderseasonticketholder

    Raider Dell,
    Thanks, we could not have done it without Dakota. I’m glad I don’t have to stay up until 12:30 est again until the Raiders play.

    The greatest irony: The Laker HOFer becomes synonymous with the Clippers (whom he is now suing for age/race discrimination).

    Believe it or not, Baylor also averaged more rebounds per game than Rodman.

  • NoMoreFargas

    I love my Raiders 3 SB to 9 NBA titles since 80 sorry not close . They have 7 since Raiders last one.

    I am a fan of any team that can keep the Celtics and the LeBrowns from a(nother) title.

    Funny some kids dnt even know Elgin played in the Other LA…….only as a clipper!!!

    That shot Kobe hit over Howard will be shown forever just like the Jordan shot in 91.

    Who cares about the Lakers this is a Raiders football Blog

    Besides we just signed Ellis and there is a new post.

  • NoMoreFargas

    How many titles did jordan win without another top 50 player or HOF answer 0.

    Lakers All Time Team

    Starters: Wilt, West, Magic, Kobe, Baylor

    Bench: Kareem, Worthy, Scott, Cooper, Shaq, Wilkes, Mikan, Goodrich

    Honorable Mention: McAdoo, Nixon, Rambis, Fisher, Hairston, A.C. Green

    However, If I were coach I would be playing Kareem at C and Wilt at PF or vice versa.
