Chat with Andrew Siciliano

Andrew

Alright...here we go. Sorry for any confusion. 10 o'clock, not 9:30!

Dalton (Indiana)

Andrew Bynum is a young promising center. The lakers lack toughness. Bynum has size which helps the team tremendously on D. What are the lakers gonna build around when Pau, Kobe, and Lamar are in their late thirtys and have no talent to fill the wholes?

Andrew
  (1:00 PM)

There will be people who go nuts today wanting to break the lakers up. relax...one game. however, it was a big game. the lakers have always been able to find the next superstar...they will find a way

Farbod Nasseri (Los Angeles)

Andrew I think you do a terrific job on the Sunday Ticket. Just wondering if your ears get a DirecTV signal?

Andrew
  (1:01 PM)

Yes, they can. more importantly, they work in thunderstorms.

Andrew
  (1:02 PM)

didn't hurt me at all. the guy was phenomenal

Will (Omaha)

Last night I seen something that was not typical of the lakers. Late in the game, it was still close and L.A. started firing up contested shots and not moving the ball. It looked as if they were nervous and in a hurry when they still had plenty of time. Is there a reason to be concerned here or why do you think this happened?

Andrew
  (1:02 PM)

they had their chances last night. pau has to finish...pau has to hit those FT's. it was sacramento all over again

don (syracuse, ny)

Andrew what is your fondest Marshall Street memory, and what was the best game you saw at the dome? (football or basketball)

Andrew
  (1:04 PM)

Most of my M street memories were clouded by consumption. I was a Faegan's guy...wednesday was flip night...senior sundays. Best dome game..tough to say. beating UK and Arizona in bball in the mid 90's. the su/miami football game where gedney was tackled on the 1 in 92...

Tom Slaten (Milton,WI)

Do you think Kobe gets or should I say is getting a fare shake when it comes to comparrisons to LeBron James AKA Akron Hammer, I see signs of Michael Jordan in both of these players should they not be compared to him as to each other.

Andrew
  (1:06 PM)

The only way to truly judge these guys against jordan is when they retire. kobe has 4 rings, the youngest to 25k...etc. at the end, he'll likely be the best

Bob (Michigan)

Wow, two Laker questions posted, and both go unanswered.

Andrew
  (1:08 PM)

haven't seen one

Steve (R.I.)

Andrew, After last night do you see the Lakers pursuing the Bosh for Bynum trade?

Andrew
  (1:10 PM)

why do people think chris bosh is a defensive upgrade? bynum didn't look great last night...but would bosh have guarded the paint betteR?

the lakers played an awful final 3 mins. they couldn't convert in the paint, and they didn't move the ball. the poise they've showed at the end of games wasn't there. it was alarming. kobe may take 35 shots tonight at msg

Tony (Chicago)

How impressive was that win for Cleveland considering Mo Williams was out...

Andrew
  (1:14 PM)

huge win for the cavs. i doubt they can maintain that level of play, however, for the entire time williams is out. delonte west, save for that three late, was a non-factor

Mark (Newport Beach, CA)

Better or worse when MT is in the studio? I imagine it is more enjoyable to make fun of him while he's in studio

Andrew
  (1:15 PM)

we don't fight over the thermostat when he's on the road...

Jonathan (California)

Andrew, With the McCourts impending divorce proceedings supposed to take place in May, (hoping that is over and done with at that point) will the Dodgers be able to go after a legit power hitter. ie.. 1st baseman Carlos Pena.

Andrew
  (1:16 PM)

the dodgers want their fans to believe that, because they handed out some money this week, they're still "in the game". paying modest money to guys that have no leverage (padilla included) doesn't do much for me. i wouldn't expect many other moves

The Situation (Jersey Shore)

Yo Andrew, I need a wingman this weekend. You up for a fistpumping session?

Andrew
  (1:17 PM)

sorry. i don't watch reality tv. as for fist pumping...i can't stand guys that want to fistpump at the blackjack table after i pull a 21. it ruins the karma

Mike (San Diego)

If you had to guess, what number is higher by year's end: LBJ triple doubles or Nets wins?

Andrew
  (1:20 PM)

clearly, LBJ's triple doubles

Mitch (NY)

You Laker fans are going to be even more upset when you drop another one to the Knickerbockers tonight!

Dan (New Jersey)

When Lane Kiffin destroys USC with recruiting violations, does the city turn to look for a real NFL team?

andrew
  (1:30 PM)

i don't think one has anything to do with the other

Andrew
  (1:31 PM)

alright everybody... time for a radio show. twitter.com/andrewsiciliano
