That's one of the worst halves I've ever seen Kobe play. Got killed on both ends of the floor.
Matt Barnes - "I respect all my opponents but I fear no one."
Deron Williams - “I hate ’em, you know,” he said the other day. “I hate the Lakers. They’re so good. I hate them because they win all the time. They’re a tough team. … We definitely talk about it. It’s not a secret. We hate the Lakers.”
Not a good way to end the half. Only down 4 though, not a big deal.
Officiating has always been bad, but its worse then ever.
Kobe has been laughable. Just laughable. Worst game I've seen him play in years.
"Let me say one more thing about Kobe. He will be the best player in the history of the game. If he keeps doing what he's doing, there is no stopping him. He is that good." - Shaquille O'Neal in his autobiography, "Shaq Talks Back"
The announcers have been going on and on about how great the Hornets are playing and how they're performing exactly like their coach wants them to. Meanwhile, Kobe has 0 points, Bynum and Pau have been in foul trouble, and the officiating has been horrible.
Yet we're only down by 4 points.
I'm gonna predict that Kobe goes Mamba mode to start the third, and once the crowd/refs realize that the Hornets don't have much of a chance, they'll lose energy and we end up winning by 10+.
Artest has been the most consistent so far......strange as that may seem... Kobe is pressing a little and his lift isn't there. I hope his doesn't try even harder in the 3rd and lets the game come to him.
