Spurs in 07 vs Dallas. I think.


Yep looks like it. Dallas lost game 1, then won 3 straight before losing Game 5 at home.

That was in the WCF though and against a good Spurs team. For us to choke against Denver like we did is just hard to believe


Correction here actually. Dallas lost Game 5 on the road after being up 3-1, then lost Game 6 at home before going into San Antonio to win in Game 7. Surprised I forgot that since it was such an epic game.

I'd say he's had a much better game than the last one. Outscored out rebounded and out blocked both Mozgov and McGee....


I am sorry Roos got to disagree with you. Bynum's poor attitude is a part of the problem.

His stats do NOT reflect his impact on this game. Bynum can take just 3 shots and impact the game much more significantly than this. His D was MIA throughout the game, his 4 blocks do not represent reality. I honestly don't even know how he's got 4 blocks.
He did try hard on the boards, but still, his whole demeanour and attitude has been detrimental to this game.
His lack of agression was very noticeable.

Having said that, this isn't really Bynum's fault. It's a team-wide issue. The lack of heart, effort and determination was egregious.
I don't know if I've ever been as dissapointed in this team as today. Outside of Kobe, they all sicken me. The ones that did actually tried (Hill, Blake, Barnes) made terrible decisions after terrible decisions.
Sessions was scared to shoot.
I am so depressed right now I can't even type. There's so much stuff that I'd like to mention that it's overwhelming. Forget it. I'll get you back later.

Steve Kerr doesn't really hide his dislike of the Lakers and Kobe. I can't stand listening to him during games like this, he's usually very critical of the Lakers and very complimentary to the opponents.

Only lost by 17. Felt like 57.

We get Ron back for game 7, hopefully bench Gasol and we'll be fine.

Ron hasn't played in 2 weeks! He will be rusty. Don't expect much from him.

We need to keep Bynum and Gasol on the bench if we want to win game 7

Even if we do win game 7, and move on to face the OKC, I have no faith in this team anymore

I'm disgusted. Our Coach is horrible, btw

keys for game 7:

drew gives an F and plays with the same effort and heart from game 1
pau doesnt suck balls and actually produces
kobe does what hes been doing
mwp plays ridiculously insane on D and O, isnt too rusty, & fires the lakers up
ebanks backs up mwp instead of barnes
sesh keeps attacking the rim and isnt afraid to shoot wide open 3's

COME OUT STRONG WITH HEART & EFFORT

My problem with Bynum is and has always been his attitude. Since the regular season. It has been so cancerous I wouldn't be that mad if they traded him (not saying they should, saying I would understand).
His body language, his dumb effing statements, his inconsistent effort, his inmaturity, it's too much. Just too much.
He rebounded the ball very well. He was more active on D (despite the 4 blocks, I wouldn't say he was great though, inconsistent effort on different possessions). His offense didn't look good, but that's almost impossible given how hard they are double and triple teaming him (sparked by our rock bottom outside shooting).

It's a matter of effort, of heart, of attitude. It doesn't necesarilly translate to statistical numbers, but it can be the difference between winning and losing.

Just look at how Kobe seems to approach the game and compare it to Drew. That alone should be enough to recognize his great weakness.
Don't even get me started about Pau. He has to go. ASAP.

Gotta agree with this, Kobe clearly swung for the ball, it was a hard foul, but it's not an ejection, come on.
