Where do people get this about Bobbitt? Where has he shown that he's a skilled defender? I hear it mentioned a lot...maybe it's just in comparison to the other Gs on the Lakers roster.


Well, yes, it's all relative. When you look down the bench, it's not much to think about when you need some defensive energy.

Ummm...Slava is probably the same as Cook in terms of boxing out.

they get it from the only time they have seen him play: preseason. I still think he should get more minutes though. stop playing Sasha exclusively at the 2 and give him some minutes at the 1. that will free up some more minutes for Bobbitt.

Actually I wanted to comment with you guys during the game, but it kinda got heated in here...so I thought it would be better if I wait a lil after the game for you to cool off...Anyway...

You guys are overreacting. Times are tough, but the Lakers will be fine.

The Lakers are on a grueling road trip, getting very little rest. The 2nd of a back-to-back after a very draining OT win New Jersey yesterday. The team is still shell-shocked after the Rudy T resignation. And they're playing without their best player.

Now I'm not saying if the Lakers had a long rest and been more fresh, they would've beaten the Pistons. After all, we are the champs and one of the better teams in the league. :man12: Still, there's plenty of reasons why it looked ugly out there, and I'm sure it won't happen every night. Don't sweat it.

I missed the game, but saw the Box Score

Daaaamn.

Prince - 25 on 11-20, and 6 boards
Rasheed - 23, 15 boards, 3 assists, 1 steal, 1 block.
Ben - 7 points, 15 boards, 3 blocks, 2 steals.
Billups - 15 points, 11 assists.
Rip - 11 points, 5 assists, 3 rebounds
Arroyo - 8 points, 7 assists, 5 rebounds.
Jenkins - 8 points, 1 rebound, 1 steal.

Limited the Lakers to 39 percent from the field (while shooting .441), +16 in rebounding, +10 in assists, +6 in three-pointers, +11 in field goal attempts , and this is just too cute:

The Lakers have now lost six in a row at the Palace.

Too bad Kobe wasn't 100%, or the Pistons would look like they did at the beginning of the season.

Prince wouldn't have but 6 points on Kobe if he was 100%. Hell, Kobe hasn't been 100% since I can remember. Butler and Jones leave everyone open constantly...but that wouldn't happen if Butler was at the three, and Kobe was defending Rip and helping out with Prince.

Plus, the Pistons would get tired of trying to defend on the screens, because Kobe would be hitting the open man constantly. You watched the game...how many times did you see Chucky pull to the other side of the court, where he was unable to hit Jones for a jumper? Too many easy baskets were avoided because of the Lakers' stupidity in the backcourt...with Kobe dominating the ball again, the Pistons would be one of the teams that would have trouble with them.

Still, how does that account for 30 rebounds and 4 blocks between the Wallaces?

Tayshaun Prince has been playing unbelievable in the month of February (21.0 ppg, .563 FG%, 5.0 rpg, 2.0 apg, 2.0 bpg). I've been talking about him because since January 1st, he's been getting 15.7 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 3.1 apg, and 1.1 bpg. He's done it on .518 shooting, and has had three single digit nights (in the last 19).

That coincides with a decline in Chauncey Billups' scoring as well as the Pistons getting off the .500 mark.

And kobe was there for the other five losses. They defend the pick and roll with Iverson, Marbury, Gilbert Arenas, Steve Francis, Paul Pierce, etc.

Huh? First of all, Prince wouldn't have been guarded by Kobe; Kobe would've guarded Hamilton and Billups (Billups was playing a lot of 2 today with Arroyo running point). And even though Prince had a big game tonight, he's still not the offensive player or a proficient scorer like those two guards are; he's the 4th scoring option on the team. Another thing, with Butler at the 3, that wouldn't change anything; Jumaine Jones is a better defender; and with Jumaine at the 3 covering Prince, Prince was on fire.

Plus, the Pistons would get tired of trying to defend on the screens, because Kobe would be hitting the open man constantly. You watched the game...how many times did you see Chucky pull to the other side of the court, where he was unable to hit Jones for a jumper? Too many easy baskets were avoided because of the Lakers' stupidity in the backcourt...with Kobe dominating the ball again, the Pistons would be one of the teams that would have trouble with them.


The Lakers were swarmed, that's why they couldn't get the ball to the open man. And even if they could I don't know if the Lakers would have hit all of their open shots anyway; they just lacked a lot of energy (probably because of fatigue from this road trip) and basically threw in the towel by the middle of the 1st quarter. And really, it was the defense, not the offense, that buried the Lakers. They knew going in that the Piston halfcourt D is good, and without Kobe in the halfcourt, they needed to score a lot in transition. That's where your easy baskets should have come from. The lack of D,lack of energy, and getting beat on the offensive glass limited their fastbreak chances and took away easy baskets.
