I've been a Warriors fan since they traded Chris Webber. Can you imagine how that's like....

Should be a win as the teamlost to them just days ago and played bad last game. I expect lots of run and gun and swarming defense!

Luke Walton looks like someone from the Brady Bunch in that pic...


Time for the pay off!!!. Hope the team learned from their mistakes in our last game and they can win this one. Actually, I believe they'll do.

The Warriors need to continue their great play at home. Eventually the shhoting has to get better, and there is no better time than at home against the Lakers. Warriors by 7.

But we are talented enough to beat San Antonio, Miami, Houston, Phoenix, almost Orlando..............???

The Fakers are just a solid consitent team, with 2/3 players that you can rely on night in night out, the rest can blow hot or cold...................

The Warriors are an up and down team, who can beat anyone on one night and lose to anyone on another, with many players that can win you the game one night but lose it the next (Ie: S-Jax against the Spurs vs S-Jax againts Portland)

As much as I loathe the Fakers (refuse to call them by there real name)............I think this one will be a little beyond us..............ohh and theyve got a pretty decent coach too.

Yes Im a pessimist, yes GSW United probably hates me and will probably start chanting inane ramblings at me...............but atleast I can only be surprised and not disapointed.

I think we will come out pissed off after how badly we played against portland, and LA 2 games ago and kick the **** out of them.....at least i hope so :?
I have seen the 49ers win a Superbowl. I have now seen the Giants win a world series. I need one more championship in my lifetime to make my life complete...

The Lakers are to us as we are to Dallas.

Every game, we SHOULD beat the Lakers. Every year, we have better chemistry, better players, and are usually on a hotter streak... and EVERY time, the Lakers just seem to make us look uncomfortable. LA, as with Utah, is a mismatch and this game worries me. We frustrate teams like Houston, Detroit, and Dallas, but it would be ignorant not to acknowledge when another team rattles us. LA, along with the Jazz, know something about us that seems to work.

I hope we take it, but I wouldn't be shocked to see the Lakers win it by 5.

Yeah it's tough. It's the makeup in the NBA, as every team has its good and bad matchups (except Minny and Seattle, they just suck period).

There is no way Fakers will always win against us.Let Baron prove to Kobe that he is capable to bring the team win over Fakers.
I have good feeling W's will win tomorrow game.Coz is in worldwide channel ESPN.SO, we will play 120% to let the world know W's is not a fluke for what they did in playoff last year. :wink:

The only reason I'd disagree is because Jackson is a coach whose biggest impact is made before and after the game. He can manage players. He's not a great X's and O's guy, he doesn't make the best substitutions, and he doesn't REALLY know when to call a time out. Sloan, maybe, but Jackson definitely hasn't outcoached Nelson.

Well, I think that Jackson knows how to motivate his players before a game, and that's what counts. For whatever reason though, we can't seem to win, and Bynum usually "blows up" (20 points is his career high) against us.
