    The new season is almost upon us and there is lots to look forward to. We have a lot of people who have been members for years but post none or very little. I’d like to invite those members to be more active this year. You don’t have to be a basketball junkie, just somebody who loves the Lakers.

    I was a lurker on ClubLakers for years and never joined. When Lakersball started up, I moved my lurking over to this site. I used to have a lot of friends that were Laker fans and we’d go to games or sports bars to watch. People get busy, life happens and I found myself missing out on sharing my fandom with friends. So I finally joined. I love being able to talk to people during the game chat. I’m not a basketball savant and don’t have nearly the knowledge of basketball that people have on this site but I always liked the doom thread and thought that I could help out with that. So that’s my story. What’s yours? What made you or would make you go from ghoster to poster?

    Mastering English good enough not to feel embarrassed that I can't express even my most simple thoughts in the prevailing language on this fine site :ADeyeshift:

    You are doing great. I took Spanish for 2 years in high school and all I can remember is how to ask for a beer and where’s the bathroom. Not the most appropriate comments for a sports site.

    Thanks and no - such comments are anything but not appropriate on a sports site ;)

    I was a lurker on clublakers. Oddly enough it was the young guys Clarkson, Randle, Ingram that brought me back.

    Forums are always best when there are many points of view and ideas being shared!

    Good to read how people felt comfy enough to share their thoughts on this site. Was not a ghoster but dove right in back in the CL days as well as here. I've slowed down since but do read the really insightful and entertaining posts (like the Doom thread) here.

    Blessed that we are all into one of if not THE greatest sports franchise around...

    i lurked for a while in the CL days reading rumors about Jermaine O'neal and others...think I finally joined because of Lakeshow09 videos and because of emplay but also because i feel this place was more civilized with better discussion that any other place on the web

    kinda crazy when i think about it, but ive been a member here (or CL) for exactly half of my life

    2005 CL. Stumbled onto it looking on line for information on rumors Lakers were maybe going to sign Kwame Brown.

    Another great idea Cookie. I've been here since the clublakers days. I come and go depending on my youth league or high school seasons. No matter how busy I get I always check in for Dame of Dooms fine work. Been a Laker fan since 1970. We used to flood the outdoor courts for ice rinks and play hoops on skates. The ball wouldn't bounce and no fouls. It was a brutal sport. The good old days.
