Agreed. He didn't have a legendary series or anything, but he played at a minimum perfectly competent basketball, at a high proficiency level that you would expect from a professional NBA player. He tried to make adjustments for his team, adopting different roles as the series progressed and he consistently came with fight and effort that simply wasn't present.

You can make the argument that he didn't get it done in a 'floor general' sense, and maybe that is true, but even the greatest leaders can only do so much, at some point, when a player has made the decision to slack off or stop paying attention, you can't make them get back in it.

Kobe has nothing to be ashamed of on a personal level. He tried.


Well said.

They're just trying to embarrass us now, and honestly i don't blame them. It's kind of like us getting revenge on the Celtics, they're beating a team that's owned them for forever (at least in the regular season).

He is mini-luke. He passes a lot and dribbles a lot and misses a lot of shots.

After this game, Odom better give his 6th man of the year award to Jason Terry.

holy wow go --- yourselves. I just checked the score. What a tribute to Phil. This has been a terrible season -- losing 5 in a row, losing to scrub teams. Laughing stock of the league right now.

In 2008 -- they got beat by 39. Now getting swept, and the Mavs going to hit a record for 3s. Cuban will celebrate embarrasing Phil like this forever.

I am disgusted.

True -- I was excited when we signed him. Now I realize that he can't do anything

And although I have seen the Lakers give up like this before, I never thought I'd see it from THIS Laker team.. Wow..

See y'all in October.. IF there's a season.. MotherEFFER...


I understand you. But I wanted to mention that there is a reason why the Mavericks are unstoppable from down town. Just imagine the Mavericks in a shoot around, it's kinda like that (lack of defense)



No doubt.. THAT what makes it so MF'ing astonishing.. That they're THAT wide open on the vast majority of those long balls.. Un-F'ing-real.. Gonna be a ton of finger pointing and blame galore in the post game interviews I'm sure.. Not gonna watch/listen to any of it though.. Beer and Megadeth a making me feel ALOT better right now..

Mark Cuban boasted before season that Mavs now have more size and depth to beat Lakers. Turns out that was an understatement
