im dying to know what kobe and jkidd say to each other
about the deal that almost was :bang:


KB10, I like that.

Who knows, what could've happened if Kidd was traded here. Lets not start a whole argument in this thread though, lol.

It's so refreshing to watch Kobe play defense like this, considering we can't see it during the season because of the team.

the halftime piece is the same as the one that NBA.com posted much earlier.. damn, ESPN can't even make their own features now?

Kobe and Melo doing a lot of one on one in the 1st quarter.... 2nd quarter was better with more ball movement.. I wish Kobe looked to drop off passes at the basket for an easy dunk.. it will make the game that much easier.. sometimes he just throws up junk there and thinks somebody will grab the rebound.. LeBron is very good in this part of the game. He is always looking for the easy basket.

Defense is better.

Kobe's not even giving Ayuso breathing room. You can tell Ayuso's getting real frustrated.

You think Kobe will return?

I doubt he would get injured, because as William Walton would say, his "physical fitness level" is through the roof. You never know, though.

Kobe will come back at the start of the 4th. Thats how the rotations have been. Melo and Kobe go out at about the 5 min mark of the 1st and 3rd qtrs, then come back at the start of 4th or around there.
