Man, Kobe is tough. Dealing with back spasms and taking a hit like that, wow.

This. There's no cohesiveness. No chemistry. Granted there are a lot of reasons for that, but still it needs to be addressed. The team needs an identity. Something they do consistently night in and out besides suck.


Yup. I mean, it's not like we are running something and the shots aren't falling. We are just sort of there physically but not at all literally.

I never thought a Kobe led team could ever look this bad for so long, but a Kobe/Dwight team? Each game you think, ok, this is the one where they snap out of it but they just look the same, every game. No emotion. No togetherness. Nothing I hate to say it but we really need a Fisher out there I think. We need leadership so badly.


I find it very interesting that if you trace our record as a team back to when we traded Fisher and look at the record it is very telling about who our leader just might have been.

Doc had those numbers earlier in the season.... maybe he could update them for us.... it's pretty bad.

Yeah, we replaced him with Blake, Duhon, and Morris. :freak2: Not that Fisher is any good now, but we couldn't find a halfway decent replacement? :bang:

But it's not just Derek Fisher. We also lost a motivated Lamar Odom. Andrew Bynum checked out. Now Pau Gasol checked out (and is injured, too).

Ariza's length and quickness got replaced by Metta who's a step slow.

Only positives are Nash, Howard, and an upgraded bench. But Nash is hurt, Howard just replaces the loss of Bynum, and the bench needs time to gel. Hence, the losses are mounting up.

I feel bad for Kobe. He's the only one willing to win. The rest just stand around and don't do jack on the defensive end.

If this team doesn't come up with their own defensive schemes, we will continue to get routed. They need to tune out the coaches, and do it themselves...

Its funny how d'antoni says, "when nash gets back, we'll be better offensively." Lol I COULD DO THAT! Can't coach defense, and his offense excuse is, "nash isn't back." lol can this man really do anything at all?

Its only pick and roll that kills us. Just pick a scheme and never deviate from it. At least then our guys would know whats coming every time. Consistency. High Hedge. Switch. Whatever. As long as its not random and helter skeltor.

I'm not talking about "on the court" performance. Fisher was the glue in the locker room it seems. Once he was gone there were issues last year with our center.... this year we are not playing as a team either. Kobe is a lot of things but a true leader that everyone can confide in isn't one of them. It's showing that we don't have a person like that on this squad IMHO
