Congratulations to the Mavericks. Hats off to them. They will win the title if they continue to shoot like that, but they're gonna face stiffer competition because every team left is hungrier than this Laker team was.

710 ESPN radio here in L.A. is calling it "The Mothers Day massacre".

And rightfully so.

So only Kobe decided to show up in that first half and everyone else decided to take an early vacation.

Disappointed in Bynum/ Odom for trying to injure them.

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

You think a SG is the cause of the Lakers poor defense and I'm absurd? If you knew anything about basketball you'd know that defense has far more to do with the coaching scheme and front-court than it does with whatever the SG is doing. Again, the defense is a team thing and the entire team made consistent mistakes on that end. Calling out just Kobe is just retarded.

As for Bynum, sorry, but your excuses are silly. EVERY great player/big-man in history has shown his greatness and established themselves as GREAT by their sixth year and often sooner. The idea of Bynum being better than Pau is absurd at this point. Pau may have stunk it up this series, but he's still a 19/10/60% TS player. We've never seen Bynum do anything even close to that over a season and until he does he's a role-player. Period. His "potential" means nothing until he actually does something. Period.

The defensive lapses in this series didn't just come from Kobe. Everyone is to blame for them. How else did Nowitzki et al get WIDE OPEN 3 point shots time after time after time? And because they had ALL DAY to shoot them they made them. Heck if I got wide open 3 point shots time after time I'd make them too and I'm not even a ball player.

I don't expect Dallas to keep shooting like this thru the playoffs and either Memphis or OKC will be better equipped to close out on their shooters than the Lakers were.
