Man, I don't want them to miss the playoffs for Kobe's sake, and just to save face, but man, Jim Buss deserves to be humiliated.

this team is so mentally weak from every coach to every player. Kobe will end his career with 5 rings it is a wrap unless the front office miraculously revamps the entire roster. what a joke :man10: they play so dumb and too kool for school. team is loaded with pretenders.

They will miraculously revamp the roster. After he retires.

i thought kobe and paus turnovers killed us more than anything other than overall defense.

4th quarter d was pathetic. crunch time offense was pathetic.

guess well never win a b2b...which is also pathetic

Turnovers AGAIN
Bad defense
chucking 3's
I should get an assist for that. It's an intentional pass to oneself, so it's an assist. That way people can't say all I do is shoot.

turnovers and ball-stopping were once again part of the problem tonight. the whole team folded with him though. we're just too old and not on the same page.

The problem is that there is no structure at all on both offense and defense. It ultimately falls on coaching and the FO. If this team failed with PJ, then I'd concede that the roster was the problem, of which Kobe is a part of.

And yes, for Kobe's sake. He doesn't deserve to go out like this.

Want to fast forward to the off-season so badly, don't know how much longer I can force myself to endure this garbage.

I didn't realize until this season just how painful it is to watch a bad defensive team in action if they can't make up for it offensively.

The problem was they stopped working out of the post. Throw the ball into your bigs and let the defense collapse damnit.

I am not even mad anymore....i'm totally over it, i accept that we are just BAD, no system whatsoever.
First half it's all okey, play through Pau/Dwight, Jamison moving nicely, and then second half, three's three's and more three's and then Kobe iso+turnovers, sloppy plays, horrible.
The second place means you're the first loser

And why stop there? We can also add Fish in the offseason and enter the GBA - Geriatric Basketball Association.

there really is no system. it's really just winging it every game and winning just banking on talent. this isn't Dantoni's system for sure it's just his rotations and lack of defensive awareness. I really don't understand some of his decisions. BUT tonight's game was really the turnovers and lack of defense in the end. I though the first half minus Kobe's last 5 mins were great. ball was shared and defense was okay. but 2nd half minus the first minute was terrible on both ends.

coach needs a system and plan every night. bc every game it's different and the only consistent thing is the lack of attention to defense and holding people accountable for not taking care of the ball.

by choosing to start Meeks over Clark Dantoni is saying he cares more about offense than defense. 2 games Meeks started he's shot like crap. his defense and hustle energy etc is always there but inconsistent shooting is killing us. I'd rather have Clark start for defensive reasons and Meeks off the bench for a potential spark. it's so bad when he's missing wide open layups and 3's the I feel Clark would make more often than not. Clark is way more confident out there starting and mass better decisions I feel. he cuts well rebounds and defends and can hit midrange shots.

seriously hope Dantoni starts Clark bc Kobe on 3's isn't smart I feel. Daniels didn't seem to be bothered by Kobe and sure bothered Kobe I thought

You're absolutely right. I had really thought we turned the corner after the Indiana game. I should have known better...

It's not possible to be mad anymore. It hurts less to just accept they're not good enough. The coaching does not mesh with the roster at hand. I'd say just try and make the Playoffs to save some face and then we'll be back to the drawing board come the off season.
