Bill praises Kobe in a game where he has an embarrasing game.

I swear to you it all deals with Chauncey starting, as soon as I posted that comment about Chauncey changing our pace the eccentric Bill Walton even noticed this.

Embarrassing? You're exaggerating. He had an off shooting night, some TOs, decent defense. That's not an embarrassing night.

^^

He played embarassinly for a long stretch. Holding onto the ball for too long, undecisive, not playing team ball. He got out of the funk but it was noticable. Carmelo fell into that trap also.

He definitely had an off night were he forced the issue a couple times, but its far from what I would consider an "embarrassing" night.

He forced it around 5 times in the 2nd quarter alone. He counted his shot attempts trying to impress the media by trying to get above the .500 mark(don't ask me how I know that, I study Kobe's game, I can completely tell). He took USA out of the game. Not Kobe hating, just criticism. This is probably in the top 5 bad games for Kobe dating back to the regular season.

Damn I missed the crossover, was it really that bad or is this overreaction?

Figured that, everyone gets crossed up at times. Who cares, Kobe served up a nice facial on the fat Mexican dude :mhihi:

The crossover was nice, if I was Kobe I would've let him get a clean shot off after he went left, instead of putting my hand right in his face to add to the play.

:mhihi:

Overall though, this was our worst game. Sure, we scored the most points, but we gave up the most, as well. Teams are going to be thinking, 'why can't we do this'? Hopefully Redd can pick up his shooting, he didn't do much but score on open baskets in transition for much of the 2nd half. His shooting along with Miller's will be key.

Kobe Bryant: 24 minutes played, 21 points on 5/13 shooting, 2/5 from 3, 9/10 FT, 4 rebounds, 3 assists 1 steal

USA - MEXICO BOXSCORE.

He said according to the new york times article today, mexico has the riches man in the world, 14% of mexico's economy... way richer than bill gates or anyone else...
