Default The Lakers are a hype machine.

The Lakers are a hype machine.

First off, have you ever seen a NBA Finals where one team was picked by 90% of the experts to win the finals and they ended up losing?


http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/playof...?series=lalbos


Not only that, but I remember in Game #1 in Boston that the Lakers were a 1.5 point favorite on the freaking road in the Finals. If that isn't hype then I don't know what is.


Coming into this year as well the Lakers were predicted by many to win the title, no one really gave Boston a chance to repeat and non one gave any other team out west to win.


Seriously why do the Lakers always get this hype? I remember in 1998 they were expected to win it all as well and they got swept by the Jazz.


In 2004 they were expected to win 70, and they didn't even come close.


Is it the media that just produces this hype or what?

What's hype is that EVERY YEAR that Tmac and Yao has been playing for the Rockets, people seems to think Rockets HAVE a chance to WIN.. yet they have not made it past the 1st round..

uh.. actually, that's not hype, that's stupid!

Default Re: The Lakers are a hype machine.

Lakers get hype bc they made the finals without a major piece they are playing with now. At least they have been living up to the hype

lol, do you want to know who had the most hype entering the season?? The Rockets. Have they lived up the hype? If the Lakers hype wasnt warranted, why would a team consisting of two 2nd round virgins and a known headcase hype be warranted?

And to answer your question, isnt it obvious that media hypes up teams? I mean, who else would? GM's? Coaches? Players?

Default Re: The Lakers are a hype machine.

wow somebody has alot of time on their hands to dedicate to message board research, :laugh:

Regardless of what people will say, you are absolutely right.

The fakers are ALL hype.

You see how they get handled by a team with a semblance of defense like Detroit.


9 out 10 ESPN "experts" picked the fakers to win, and none of them i mean NONE of them have wiped the egg off their face to this day, they are in complete denial that the lakers suffered the worst defeat in Finals history in a close out game, as well as the fact that they gave up the biggest lead in Finals history sparked by Paul Pierce's historical block of kobe bryants FADEAWAY, probably THE Biggest Block in Finals history in terms of how it jumpstarted the biggest comeback in Finals history, Pierce was truly the MVP and best player, much more valuable the bryant, yet the media refused to acknowledge this.


They are just hoping and praying that the Celtics lose this year so their mental scars can begin to heal and they don't have to admit how incompetent they are.


Lebron or kobe get 6 assists and it's "AND KOBE BRYANT WITH 6 ASSISTS HE HAD A GREAT GAME!!"


Rondo gets a huge triple double, here's ESPN's hatecaster, in a very subdued tone:

"and rondo did something he's never done before"


complete and total hate.


They still try to paint Kendrick Perkins, Rondo, and Leon as scrubs, nothing could be further from reality.


LA is all hype, their game is fake, like their name (there's no Lakes in LA, that was Minnesota)

Whenever I see LA build up a big lead with those 3's from Radmonivich and that other girly dude vucacic, it makes me laugh because it's built on nothing...they will give up that lead in a couple minutes, like they did to Indiana, because it's not built on great teamwork, offensive and defensive schemes that will produce the same results later in the game.

The fakers are very streaky, once they miss a few shots they lose that confidence and that offensive streak is gone, they are very vulnerable.


David Stern's favorite team is also the lakers from what hear....Imagine how humiliating it must have been to get boo'ed by CELTICS FANS at the ring ceremony...lmao!!!1


Let the media have the fakers as their darlings, I like it that way, it will be that much sweeter seeing them all proven to be the idiots they are once again.


Good Post TmacsRockets, lakers are good, but the CELTICS are great, we don't need the hype...actually I think some media people are doing it because they feel bad for the lakers, they were all crying their hearts out after they lost.

ooo so sad




Also, lmao @ the media saying because of bynum the lakers are better, KENDRICK PERKINS owns andy's soul, has done so on multiple occasions, and there's plenty of video of that Dunk and ice grill that got PERK a Technical because the refs felt sorry for bynum.

So you think that the media acting like the NBA CHAMPION BOSTON CELTICS are clearly an inferior team the Lakers is a correct assessment ?

I guess the media can control people's mind, those jew wands are no joke.

In the end it's all water under the bridge though, I laugh as the jealous one's envy...I wouldn't want to be the media darlings, i can't stand those morons.

This post is useless. This board is infected with LAL homers that will burn you down. Of course they are hype. The fans yell and scream that the Lakers are the best until the media gets ahold of it and runs away with it. This makes the rest of the world believe the garbage to though.
