Well I mean we're on a Laker site.
By definition we're homers 90% of the time. All we can do is try to be objective, but we're still Laker fans first.
Anyway, this morning during a DP Show commercial break I decided to check in on Cowherd.
First I'll give him credit for saying Kobe is different from Melo because Kobe used to play defense. Kudos, Cowherd. But then a fan calls in and says "scoring isn't everything, that's why I'd pick LeBron to start my team. He makes the whole team better."
To which Cowherd replies,"Right?? I watched Kobe put up 42 points, but they were still DOWN to the Hornets by 25 points!"
Okay... well a few things:
1. Your precious LeBron barely beat an Orlando team that is MAYBE better than the Hornets.
2. Kobe didn't just have 42 points, he also had 12 assists and 7 rebounds and shot extremely efficiently while playing solid defense down the stretch. If you're going to use a game where he scores a lot but at the expense of his team, you're going to have to try harder than that idiot.
3. We still won the game! How do you use the game against the Hornets as a measuring stick of him shooting too much and relying on scoring when he DIDN'T just score and we WON the game?? How stupid is that??
For a guy that claimed to not be like Skip Bayless, he makes an awful lot of the same mistakes. The only difference is Skip knows he's a jack***, while Cowherd thinks better of himself.
