We'll improve when they return and as Kobe plays himself into shape, but I said we're a 42-win team as presently constituted. Maybe if Kobe plays like he did last year and we have good health we can make it to the second round. We just don't have the appropriate bigs.

Didn't need a three, but we sure needed that defensive board when Horford grabbed it.

we had a chance. Didn't get get a rebound.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

You mean we weren't one of the best teams in the NBA before Kobe showed up to ruin it?


No...not at all. I don't put it past him, after all he ruined Nash's career, marriage and is the cause of halitosis. He could easily ruin everyone's career with a snap of his fingers......

Kobe shouldn't have taken that three, but honesty the game was lost the possession prior when Horford missed, rebounded, and Atlanta scored.

sister golden hair wrote:Get used to the broken record. This team has to shoot lights out from three to have a chance at winning. When they aren't lighting it up, they tend to lose big. There's no enough defense, rebounding, or ball security to keep them in games when the long-range shooting goes south. At best, this team is a .500 club, and that's assuming everything is optimal. More likely they will be sub-.500.
