Hello all,

Mike@LG reached out to me from the Pay it Forward thread.

It has been years, but I have still come around from time to time. Big Kudos to DancingBarry and the moderator team for continuing the wonderful legacy that is LG. It has been a little over 10 years since I've handed over the torch.

Even before Rivals, I've always wanted LG to be a place for fans of all ages, backgrounds, and beliefs to visit. It was always a 'virtual living room' to me, and I believe the great group of moderators and fans have kept it this way.

I'm enjoying the current direction of the Lakers and watching the next generation of players.

I wish everyone here, new members and old friends, good health in 2018 and beyond. It was bittersweet to read my post from 2007. But as they say, it's not farewell, it's until we meet again.

Blessings,

JasonLG

I repeat what I posted in 2007 - Thank you! LG has been my refuge for almost as long as I've been married.

Hello Jason,

Thank you for posting, and of course, thank you for having the vision to start Lakers Ground.

I have learned so much from this site that you started, and now, with Golden Throat's Lakers Film Room, i'm learning even more.

I'll be 73 on February 15th, and while I still hold on to some of my old views, I think this place has proven to me that even old dogs can learn new tricks.

Welcome back Jason. Hope all is well with you and that we are living up to the dreams you had for your baby. Hope it is less than ten years until we hear from you again.

Hello Jason,

we never wrote, but I wanted to let you (and the current LG staff) know how much this site is appreciated.

I'm from Europe and originate from behind the iron curtain.
Back in the days it was a wonder to have any glimpse at NBA at all. It was mostly in the form of smuggled illegal VHS.
And then the curtain fell and one night I had a chance to see the real finals. Live. It was 1991 and Magic with Vlade tried to hold their ground against Michael and Scottie.

Fast forward some 15 years and the era of the internet forums was in the bloom. I realised that my curiosity could extend beyond the official NBA.com site. I found several forums to follow and to get more information about the Lakers I still loved. One by one the others were less frequented. One site remained a must visit.

The value that LG brings to those who for one or the other reason can not follow NBA live can not be overestimated. There are people here who provide analysis and overview that is unmatched even in professional sites.

What you started and what others have held up can not be described.

Thank you so much!
And best of luck in whatever you now do in life!

Hey Jason,

From a fellow San Diegan, I'd like that thank you for your contribution to the community. Keep up the good work.

From a fellow LG member and a Lakers fan, I'd like to thank you for making this community what it is today. I've been to many message boards (NBA & Non), but I have never seen anything like this. Thank You for what has turned into countless hours of Lakers enjoyment. I've been lurking on this site since 2012, and during those years, the Lakers have been terrible. But this forum and the hope that the Lakers will rise to the top again, are the things that keep me going.

Must have been hard to walk away from this puppy! You have to be proud of what you started, but I know me and I could never run this site. Too much work!! LOL

But seriously, thanks for starting it and setting it on a good course. I post on a few sports forums and some other types of forums. Considering the volatile nature of a sports site, this site is one of the better sites I partake in.

You and all the other mods and owners have my appreciation.

Thank you!
