Because Bynum was never the man before.

Flawed logic FTW!

For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

I didn't even see where he hurt it. At this point I'm starting to question this guys hunger. Plays a crap game, then fakes an injury? Starting to lean towards it.

On a day when kobe called him out in a team meeting and he had no response... hmmm...

No, I cant believe he'd fake it. Though I didnt see in the replays how it happened either.

He was playing fine with better energy and more passion. The only person who'd think he faked the injury to get out of the game is someone who didn't watch the game.

Simple as that.

"I think this will be the start of a new season for us tonight," Howard said after the team's shootaround Wednesday in preparation for their game against the Memphis Grizzlies.

What he said was wrong, fk? Is it his fault he's hurt? Would you say the same thing about Nash if Nash had made a statement, played hard, and then was hurt?

One example of the rocky relationship between the two Western Conference All-Star starters, according to a league source, was a game this season when Howard harped to a teammate about the disparity between his and Bryant's shots while sitting on the bench. The teammate called Bryant over so Howard could tell it to Bryant's face, but Howard refused to speak up


Big ups Dwight. I wouldn't want the leader of the high school gossip group leading my team.

This is two times now that D12 has had a chance to say something to Kobe and backed down.

i was trying to make a statement on how we keep talking about new beginnings, but it's the same combination of bad luck and bad play/results. it just gets old to me. nowhere was i implying that his getting hurt was his fault. maybe i just don't understand that emoticon.

Not popular, but I would trade Dwight while he still has value. It's going to be tough enough because a team will risk him not re-signing, but throw in injured too and dang, not good.

I am all for this. We're taking too big of a risk with this guy. He might never be his Orlando self.

i don't get why anyone would be against trading him now. he's clearly unhappy and didn't want to play for LA in the first place, so why the hell would he stick around when things are a complete disaster? that and the fact that for the most part he's played like crap should get the FO thinking trade

get something in return for him now instead of letting him walk away for nothing

i'd be on board for this. the question becomes, though, trade for what? we don't know what we need, this team has no identity, no purpose, no sense of cohesion. who do we bring in? who are we? what is going on? i honestly don't know.

As much hate as I and many others have given Pau here this season, I'd be fine rolling with him at C. Sure he can't play defense, but at least he has an offensive game sometimes when he's featured out there, we're not playing defense with Dwight either, might as well try and score.

I don't think that would help. At all. With all due respect. A center who can't play D, has slowed down considerably and has tendinitis in both his knees.

from the looks of Paus game today, I'd say we've lost him too in terms of wanting to be here.

I do agree that Pau looks checked out and has for a while, but if they ARE going to keep him if they use him how he wants I think he'll at least be more engaged. IF they are going to keep him, use him right I guess.
