I will actually root for the Mavs now. They played the right wasy, and deserve it. I hope they beat the Heat or Cetls.

The Mavs will crush Memphis or Ok City.

Good for Cuban. He may finally have a winner.


Gasol and Shannon to NJ for D. Will.

Bynum, Artest, and ???? to Orlando for Howard and Turk.

I guess the Pacquiao saved me from witnessing this embarrassment and anger. Went to my cousins to watch the fight and didn't get home till 6am, and just woke up now and have yet to turn the game on. Just saw the score on NBA.com

heheheh, you're getting worked up. Yes, Kobe does not play good defense. If you disagree then you probably don't know what good defense looks like. I'll give you a hint, it involves hustling.

And Bynum could dominate. You've seen him dominate when given the chance.

Kobe is BY FAR not the reason we are losing the series.

BUT, now you can officially say everyone on this team sucked.

17/3/1 with 5 TOs, 0-5 from 3s and 7-18 shooting is not getting it done either.

My point is that everyone on this team sucks right now, Kobe included.

In all seriousness, by refusing to play the game Odom & Bynum have disgraced this Laker franchise like Kwame Brown before them.

We didn't need to win. We just had to have a decent, high-effort game that went to the wire and let Phil leave with some pride. Not only was that too much, but apparently, we had to deprive him of the dignity of losing with grace. Bynum in particular needs to be ashamed of himself.

BTW, Mavs tie record for 20 3 pointers in the game.

I don't think you know what good defense looks like, considering Kobe's man has certainly not been the one killing us. Maybe you should watch the games more closely. And no, Bynum isn't dominant and never will be. Guy is in his 6th year and has never been a dominant player . Get over it.

How satisfying for Cuban, after all this time, it's his team who ends PJ's coaching career!

That graphic, where they showed PJ's championship years, just looked incomplete with the 2 on their own in the last segment. 4 3peats would have been special.

There you have it folks... Lakers swept out of the playoffs... no guts no heart no glory... Phil isn't responsible for their insides... can't say I'd like to see everyone back if there is a season next year... team needs a facelift... Someone needs to knock out the Heat... :man5:

My thoughts...

I was seething as I typed this and my hands have been unsteadily shaking.

It took me awhile to come back here. I've been doing more lurking than posting lately, reading everyone else's thoughts, so now I feel comfortable having my say. I have been a fan for many years, and I cannot recall seeing a more embarrassing display than the one I saw today. Even worse than the so-called Phoenix game. Even worse than the so-called Game 5 in Cleveland last year. I cannot believe the two-time defending champions were swept out of the playoffs in the 2nd round. If in fact this was the last game Phil Jackson ever coaches in the NBA, this was not the way he or I expected him to go out.
The Lakers were beaten today by Dallas' bench players, not even their first-string team. Hell, they could have suited 5 dead men and still won. Guys like Terry and Barea who exploited their lack of quickness on the perimeter in defending the pick and roll, which has been the team's weakness as long as I can remember.
I hope this team IS blown up over the summer. Everyone, from the coach on down, is responsible in some way for this debacle. New blood will likely be beneficial to this team. Minor tweaks to the system are not good enough. A major overhaul is needed and likely will happen. I love individual Lakers as people and thank them for their services to the team, but this is a business. We are in it to win it. If we don't win, the season is a failure. And being swept in the 2nd round constitutes a COLOSSAL failure.
I saw no pride in this team. No heart. Everyone just quit. For supposed champions, this team had absolutely no fight. They seemed mentally checked out, already on vacation. Of the four games in the series the Lakers inexplicably lost, they were in two of them -- Games One and Three. The Game Three loss will hurt and haunt for a long time.
It is clear that the old formula the Lakers (and to some extent the Spurs) have used to win for most of this decade is now obsolete. The league is now younger and more athletic, and the Lakers must now adjust to the trend. This team must rebuild, must regroup. And like the proud franchise they are, the Lakers will be back.

Jacks, if you think Kobe played great defense all year, including the playoffs, then I can honestly know for certain that you have very poor basketball knowledge. I will stop trying to convince you of that, however, but I know it with certainty. That's absurd.

Also, Bynum being in his sixth year is irellevant. He came into the league as a high school scrub that was drafted entirely off of potential and size. He's huge and has very nice genetical advantages if you know what I mean. Long arms. He was the perfect mold. At this stage in his career, he is now extremely skilled and could score for us efficiently, if we let him. He alters the game just by being there. I just think we should, you know, quit ignoring our second best player. That's all. I don't think Bynum >> Kobe, not even close. I also don't think Bynum is the best center in this league. But he can dominate. I'd be frustrated if I were him, hes sacrificing personal glory and success at the moment and trying to just focus on defense
