I can't stand watching the lakers play like this! No effort. None. The defense is horrible. Fouling a lot. No offensive rebounding whatsoever. No intensity, no fastbreak opportunities, no shooting, no, no, no.
Kobe is playing great according to statistics, but I don't like him passing it that much, to players that can't shoot, like MWP.
Mike Brown's pick and roll defense sucks againts catch and shooting big men!!! Gooden burned them time after time with that little mid range J.. It also forces "help the helper" type of plays that usually can't be sostained for an entire possession and frequently leaves a wide open 3pt shooter, most of the times, in the corner.
I am deeply disappointed. I hoped the win againts the clippers would be a turning point for these players and they realized that to win they have to give it all they've got. Of course, that's nothing like what we saw tonight.
"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.
