This will come down to:
-The no-show by the bigs in games 3,5 & 6 against the Nuggets. Went 7 games, shouldn't have. Forced us to play back-to-backs, which was terrible.
-The Game 2 choke job. Kobe's turnover, Kobe's bad shot over Harden, terrible D allowing a 9-0 run.
-The Game 4 choke job. Pau Gasol. Brown's incapability to adjust our offense to the fronting against Bynum. The bigs lack of agression. No D again (32 4th Q points). Kobe not being able to get good looks, and going cold.
-Game 5: No effort to start the game. Sessions' turnovers. Allowing 10 offensive rebounds in the first half. Bynum's foul trouble. The pathetic flagrant + 2 Ts called on us. Brown sitting Kobe to start the 4th. Our bigs being outplayed by COLLISON and Perkins.
"The first time I ever saw my uniform hanging in the locker I put it on right away, and it just felt like I was putting on golden armour. From that day forward, I just called it 'the golden armour', it just felt like there was something mystical and magical about it" - Kobe Bryant.
