How telling of our poor perimeter D is it that we're afraid of Calderon starting? :man10: :man6:

We're at the point where I'll take a win even if we're playing the Sparks and they're running with 4 players

Thats funny. Of course if history has proven correctly you would call the game before it started saying the Sparks are going to win by 42 points.

The last few games show why the "Kobe passing system" is flawed. What it is doing is getting other guys baskets but these are very undependable scorers. This is also taking Kobe out of rhythm. Gets late and the game tightens up and no one can make a shot and Kobe has no rhythm. The insane number of 3s didn't help either. I have never seen a more backwards basketball team in my life. You have an all time assist guy acting as the shooting guard. An all time scoring guard acting as the PG. You have Pau shooting 3s. Team may make it into the playoffs but they are going to get knocked out very early.

I love the Kobe passing first and playmaking... it takes teams out of their element due to its unpredictability.

62 points in the first half, 36 in the 2nd. Too bad we can't just play the first half.

10 am early game, Detroit always plays us tough up in the Palace, no Dwight, team is distracted by Superbowl. I'll take any wins at this point in the season. Glad we win. On to Brooklyn

Teams know now that even if they're down 30 against us they can still come back and be in it, that is my complaint, that is a terrible message to put out there. We've given up two 18 point leads, I believe a 15 point lead, and a 29 point lead.

I think it is fair to say at this point that the Lakers are still just as terrible as ever, with the only improvement being that they are more capable of scoring consistently for stretches of any given game. But in the big picture that's really 'it' as far as improvements. Where most of the season they've struggled somewhat to have 7-0 runs or 10-0 runs at all, they're now more capable of getting those runs to occur, but they are still just runs at this point and because the defense is so. bad. they wind up nearly blowing every game they take a lead in.

On the plus side though, even though the team is basically still just as bad as ever(albeit with some fool's gold wins) the games have been more engaging to watch, so at least there's that.

Yea and that guy in your sig protecting the paint, or rather not protecting the paint. That 4th quarter D was horrendous.

We need Dwight in Brooklyn or its gonna be a layup drill.

My big WMC is definitely the free throws.

As for blowing big leads, I think we'll get it under control soon enough. The reason we're not is because we're not used to having big leads all year. Well, that and our defense can really suck at times. :man10:

But yeah, can't believe the BEST FT SHOOTER IN NBA HISTORY missed two clutch free throws in a row! We really have seen it all this season. :freak2: That and no backcourt violation near the end??? :mad1:

I think I agree with the officials on that call. You're allowed to pass into the backcourt on that play and he was basically on the line when he received the pass as in, he didn't completely have possession in the front court before stumbling back.

I was pretty sure the inbound guy took more than 5 seconds to inbound the ball on the last play, as well.
