Bumped. We just inserted a little expert testimony on LMR's behalf. GO BRUINS. -N
I think many of us who watched the Celtics play Ben Ball, and the Lakers play soft ball knew exactly what the Lakers were missing -- Lorenzo Mata Real.
Today, it seems that Phil Jackson sees the need and hopefully he will see the player who can fill it.
The only missing part that I've always consistently said is we need a head banger, we need a tough guy on this team.
LMR is that, and much more. LMR is a total team player. LMR always plays hard. LMR doesn't step away and reach in, he takes charges. He is the antithesis of the soft "Hollywood" player:
I'm really surprised that everyone seems him going to foreign soil to play. Surely, there are teams that value what he brings -- and one of them should be the Lakers.
I know he won't be drafted, but if I were the Lakers, I'd call him in for a walk on try out, or whatever they call it.
