You tryin' to start sumthin' up in here? :man10:


You know, if I felt that Drew was actually trying his best, I wouldn't be so hard on him. But does anyone in here want to argue that Andrew Bynum is playing his hardest right now? The lack of effort really boils my blood....this cat thinks he's too cool for school.

Couple things I see:
1. Bynum getting pissed about the D is his usual passive-aggressive BS. His effort is garbage right now.
2. Kobe laying in the weeds a bit too much.
3. Transition D is horrible, but we dig our own hole by sparking runouts with bad shots.
4. Too many scrub minutes for Murph/McRib
5. Sessions is struggling with his injuries.


I see a complete dismantling of our perimeter defense... Kobe, MWP and Barnes are all out of position on just about every play.... We are scrambling all over the place yet no one seems to be within 5 feet of a SA player when the shot goes up.....

Bynum is rotating slowly and no one is helping him with Duncan.... he is getting caught in the middle of the paint while not really covering anyone.... just playing the paint....

Gasol is his usual slow to rotate in the team defense setting with the starters. However he was working well with Blake on the pick and roll in the second quarter.... mainly because it was Splitter/Neal..... not Duncan/Parker...

The ball has been stopping too much on offense and we went away from the post up game in the late second quarter for some reason.

Kobe doesn't look like he's back to 100% IMHO.... he's not running at full speed and has no lift whatsoever on his turnaround jumper or his face up jumper...... that doesn't bode well for us if he's not 100%

Lakers have been allergic to pick n rolls on both ends off the floor for a decade+ ... not easy to get rid of the triangle habits ( plus we are a post team) , on the other end , Sessions D is Chucky Atkins like and both bigs are too slow

I don't necessarily disagree but you could be a little more liberal with your evaluations as he isn't the reason our defense sucks.... he's part of it but the perimeter players are stinking just as much if not more right now on that end of the floor......

You know how some of you said that Drew getting mad was a good thing. I don't think so. Stu is right when he says that for most players, a mad player is a bad player. Drew ain't a special exception to the rule like Kobe is.

Don't get mad against SA, keep your cool, be patient, and play smart. IF you want to get mad, get mad at the rim when you dunk that rock.

What are we doing on offense?... Posting Kobe and MWP while Bynum and Pau are 15 feet from the hoop... this what we came up with at half....

I swear I have no confidence when Blake is going to the rim. Even when the lane parts like the red sea for him

Kobe needs to close the gap on those passes.....
