    I completely doubt that h2h record is accurate. Last time I saw it Lebron had a comfortable lead and that was with Cleveland. Lakers are 1-3 vs the heat since Lebron joined so no way is it 17-17.

    I was responding to the ultimate Laker homer who thinks Kobe invented the earth, sun, moon, and water. By no means did I even need to bring context in on that one dude.
    He's been on my list, so I didn't really have to go thru what all he told you and chonz besides your quoted posts beforehand. Damn quotes but I just had to add the context in because I remember for the longest time thinkinh Kobe had **** luck vs Bron

    And yeah I was just saying I could never put TA or Thabo on all 1st D when they don't play 30 minutes a night, score, or rebound well. They are total specialists. Now a guy like young Artest, Pippen, Cooper, or Iggy/Josh Smith when his head is right, you get no argument from me. Same with Bowen, Battier (younger) or Fox (more playoff mins) because they actually logged minutes at least and weren't treat like O/D with Mayo and Harden the last couple years

    Definitely, just feel bad for him. Shouldn't have to be going all out defensively this early but thats what the season has called for

    Hopefully Kobe's D holds up. It's gonna be fun to see him go at Lebron tomorrow, because I'm pretty sure thats going to be his assignment. Nash and D'Antoni both said that Kobe's defensive assignments are going to be against the teams best player...thats the best way for him to get motivated. Should be interesting...

    kobe is a very good defender. he molded his game watching games of MJ and MJ was an very good defender too. mj was not the greatest defender but he always manages to get to his defensive positions. so kobe can't be wrong for trying to play like him.

    the hardest thing for scorers like kobe or MJ is how to score well while still defending. doing both requires a lot of energy.

    age will factor in if he will try to defend like that every night. if kobe can start trusting his team on offense, he can spend more effort on defending knowing his team will be fine without him scoring.

    Its nice to see he can still lock someone down after so many seasons, but the thing is that he was practically dead at the end of the game and there is no way he can keep that up on a nightly basis.

    You're right, I misread something:

    http://www.basketball-reference.com/...1&p2=bryanko01

    If you look at that and click the "W" column, for some reason it shows each game twice. I assumed it'd just line up the W for Kobe (since he's the 1st guy) and then the ones for Bron. It's 6 to 11 in favor of LeBron. Still, it's bizarre that LeBron plays really ****** against Kobe given how good he normally is.

    And then. He made them pancakes.

    He was dead at the third quarter when he had already played 33 minutes. When he sat and came back in he was ready to go and closed it out. Dantoni needs to steal Phil's rest strategy. Sit Kobe at the final two min mark of the first and third and then bring him back in at the 9-7 minute mark of the second and foyrth as that maximizes commercial stoppages for extra rest.
