Tues. 1/3 - Lakers vs Rockets - Predictions & Comments

serious question: did the lakers get a stop after the six minute mark in the 3rd? i don't remember one until dragic's offensive foul.

they really let the pace get to houston's favor. blake got sped up, and it was infectious. i really haven't enjoyed the way they've played tonight, just from a philosophical standpoint. it's not winning basketball, whether they're up on the scoreboard or not.

btw, look for a steady diet of the lowry high screen and roll with scola down the stretch. the lakers haven't shown they can even force them off their top two options on that play.

Yes! I never thought I'd be scared when anyone on our team has to shoot freethrows lol.

Yeah. It's a real cop-out argument whenever someone labels a fan "anti-Kobe" simply because he disagrees with Bryant's decision making and is thinking of the team first. I'm the same way, as much as it'd be great to see Kobe further his legacy, the team comes first.

lol @ "cop out."

Obviously you haven't been around here long enough.

I've shat on Kobe when he deserved it (trying to demand a trade. etc.).

I'm ALWAYS Laker first...for 35 years. Don't come at me like that.

I already said his decision making was suspect after the last couple of games.

But no way in hell am I about to put the crown on Drew...and that's where you jumped in...

So true! I wish he was actually more decisive and looked for his shot more and didn't hesitiate when he has open looks. He has such a nice looking stroke. Nice shot, Steve.

I still rather have Andrew than Dwight right especially when he's healthy.

Legendary wrote:First of all, I said it was too early to coronate. No one is cherry picking s***. Kobe deserves the benefit of the doubt no matter what happened in the last couple of days, months, or years. Or have you forgot about what he's done for this team? If it's the marriage, the wrist, the car ran out of gas on the way to the game....I'll give him the benefit of the doubt until it's conclusive that someone else on this team deserves the #1 spot. It sure as hell isn't Drew after 6 games in....

If Kobe wants to shoot us out of 2 games...three games... so f******* what? I'm not going to sit here and say this is Bynum's team? lol...

WTF?

Or should I do what you're doing and get caught up in Drew's magnificent performance here in in January?


The point is that life on the court would be much more simple if the Lakers simply chose to use what works as opposed to forcing things in order to satisfy #24's ego. Your post speaks volumes about your personal concerns as a fan. You care more about what Bryant wants, what Bryant gets and what Bryant's legacy looks like than you do the team and that's fine, but your blatant exaggeration of what those of us who have been critical of Kobe's decision-making are hoping for is just pathetic. I'm not saying it's Bynum's team, just that he should be #1 on offense, especially with Bryant injured ATM.

As for you not caring if Kobe wants to "shoot us out of games", thank God you're not a member of Lakers management or the coaching staff. You play to win the game, simple as that.

That was such a flop by Lowry. He just contorted his body in mid air like that, what a joke.
