Unless he DVR'd the game and watched the whole thing after. He just proved he lied.Skip Bayless@RealSkipBayless
Must admit I'm watching Danica more than I am Kobe, for now.

Now we're finding a way of getting into the playoffs and they're still finding ways to downplay our accomplishments these past several games. I'm disgusted. That Laker hate after so many seasons is still strong.

Ever since then he's been a LeBron defender, even when LeBron wasn't liked for leaving, even about the stupid signing celebration party, even when LeBron choked in the Finals, he was a contrarian just for the sake of it, to be different than everyone else out there, to get listeners, and often times just to be annoying.

He's the guy with so much sports knowledge they gave him a show that replays SportsCenter's Top 10 highlights.

Are the Lakers secretly a good team?
OK, it might not be much of a secret anymore, because the Lakers are suddenly looking a lot like the team they were supposed to be when the season started. Last night's close win over a struggling Mavericks team brought Los Angeles to 11-4 in their past 15 games, and they're only 2½ games out of the last playoff spot in the Western Conference. That spot usually doesn't portend success, but it's a unique situation; this team and the one that started the season 17-25 have precious little in common.
bigapplemortgage: "I'm not a Kobe Bryant fan but that man is a killer. Top 3 scorer, maybe top 2 scorer of all time."
legacyreaper33: "Laker haters must be getting nervous. Lakers are playing .700 ball since their "new season" started."
Casketjez: "Great performance by Kobe last night, he hit some amazing, difficult shots. That being said: I don't get how all the Laker fans are happy with the way the Lakers won that game. Again, Kobe hit some amazing shots but he never looked to get anybody else involved. After he hit that one tough three he had about 4 or 5 consecutive posessions where he wasn't taking good shots. Yes, they went in but that' recipe is not going to win them many games in the playoffs. Not with Howard committing stupid fouls and giving them almost nothing. And remember: this was against a mediocre at best Mavs team."
UCLAkersDodgers: "2 1/2 out isn't impossible. The test will be if they unravel once they lose a game."
J-Short37: "Hard fought and needed win from the Lake show, it was good to see Kobe turn back the hands of time and Nash for that matter. Next game will be a huge test but if we can keep it close like this we havea shot at the end of the game like this one. "
puffyusaf#2 wrote:Oh Boy Mr. Skip Bayless proves again he does not watch the Lakers. He just said that Kobe/Nash doesn't work because "Kobe has turned Nash into a spot up shooter. While Kobe goes 1 on 2 Nash just sits in the corner. This isn't the two-time MVP Nash at all. They have taken the pick and roll away from him. It doesn't work." He also said, the Lakers winning is fools gold because Kobe and Nash don't work and Kobe can't play at this level to win games.
I feel like a fool for thinking they would actually give the Lakers and Kobe props for playing the way they should of been playing all season long. Umm. Nope. Guess thats too much.
