Well.... supporting Howard has nothing to do with it. He's not a go-to scorer.... never really has been. He gets his points off of others action. A guy like Kobe just flat out takes what he wants. Players like that come along 2 or 3 in a generation.

To get Howard in positions to score will be a team effort when Kobe finally hangs them up....

Lakers are just beat. Old legs, sore backs, etc. Life, and the season goes on.

i've been ridiculed in the "realistic chances" thread for suggesting that the lakers should probably be more worried about holding off utah than catching anyone, and games like this are why. it's still in them. that was eye-gougingly horrible.

every Jamison shot was short and just him jogging up the floor. he's old and tired and so is the team. Dwight started out kinda messing around and really just missed a lot of easy ones and before you know it everyone is getting tired and missing and were down and then defense goes with the lack of energy and were down 16

Horrible game today, but then... Utah might lose too. Portland also lost, so... while not ideal, we are still holding that #8 for now. Rest until Friday and hopefully it will get better.

The players were tired in this back to back game, time to waive the white flag on this game and put in Sacre, Ebanks, Morris and Duhon.

hey all people are saying is that when given a chance guys will make the shots. Kobe shouldn't shoot 20 times he needs to spread the ball around.

MWP= 5/17
D12= 6/18
Nashty= 6/17
Blakester= 6/11

hey Jodi= 3/9

That is spreading the wealth.
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.

So.... being "realistic" is grounds for ridicule?.... Huh... all this time I thought it was personal when I was met with more than a little resistance.... :man10:

Seriously, we're not a great team. I think we'll back into the playoffs now.... but I'm not so sure that we will have an success once there.

Kobe showing his face and messing up the team chemistry, darn you Kobe :man2: But for real I spoke too soon :( I thought we had this game in the bag. I think the last two games our guys played strictly on team motivation and emotion. I loved seeing it, I don't know what happened this game. Losing this big against the Pacers would have been understandable but the Suns of all teams?

D has not improved...its misleading when teams shoot a bad fg % against us, usually wide open misses, only our offense has improved and thats cause we hit shots...

Maybe. Or maybe the guys are just tired and it's not their day? It happens.

Indeed. We probably still lose this game with a healthy Kobe, but you just never know because there is no quit in that guy. That is something sorely missed, taken for granted by detractors, and that will be missed when he's gone.
