What are these dumb Pau guarding Carmelo predictions? They're not gonna have a slow lanky power forward guarding arguably the toughest scorer in the league. Artest will start and guard him and Gasol will guard Brewer...which isn't bad. If they wanna run their offense through Brewer trying to take Gasol in one on one I'll take that over Melo going nuts and Felton getting in the paint
Yeah, we need to start Ron. Put him on Melo, let Pau guard Brewer, and give the ball to Pau on the block to get Melo in foul trouble
knicks playing like garbage last 4 games (all at home).... beat cavs only by 1,lost at home big to Hiuston and bulls,and really was lucky to beat Wolves last game....but Lakers with their zero defense and heroball by Kobe,will make knicks look like best team in the nba
The man is a baller.
The best part about this is that it's not even a joke:
Thank god all Kobe cares about is winning rings.Kobe Bryant has scored at least 30 points in his past eight games. And he enters his record 15th Christmas Day game needing 29 points to surpass Oscar Robertson's Christmas record for total points scored (377). So it's probably safe to say we all know what's going to happen.

And I sure hope the refs are nicer to him than they were in the last game.
Because god knows Kobe deserves to shoot as often as he wants to.
I mean, think about it, over his career him scoring a lot usually means we win. Not always, of course. The records he is setting now are just compliments to his winning ways.
That all said, Kobe needs to shoot less and let his super star teammates make plays too. Also, I hope he does get the christmas day scoring record.
I'm interested in production and accountability.
Kobe doesn't like to be held accountable for anything, and he has a legion of fans who will excuse any of his abuses. I'm not one of those fans.
Kobe isn't the Lakers. He wears the uniform, and as far as I'm concerned he's the lucky one -- not the franchise. The standard of excellence demanded by the franchise transcends everything, which is why I got on Shaq all the time for being a big fat load and wasting the opportunity to leave all-time footprints.
If this forum wasn't overflowing with Kobe disciples and apologists you wouldn't be hearing much from me because others would be pointing out the obvious. If anybody else on the team jacked up 41 shots -- let alone missing most of them -- there would be no end to the "hate".
But because it's Kobe it's all good. And that's exactly the attitude that is going to destroy this team before it ever gets a chance to come together.
Kobe will not shoot, and never has shot, the Lakers to a title. But too many fans think that he has, and he uses that (and his ******** lie about trust) to excuse his shot attempts whenever he feels like it.
I'm not against Kobe taking 20 shots a game, and scoring an efficient 25 points. He's a legit threat. But what he did in the last game was a joke.
I think starting line up should be
PG- Nash vs Felton
SG- Meeks vs Kidd
SF- kobe vs brewer
PF- artest vs Carmelo- tho he dropped 30 in 24min I think
C- Howard vs chandler
Off the bench pau at center
