You guys are lucky Wade completely zoned out and took horrendous shots, the first time i've seen him do that all year.

I commend them for not giving up, but the Knicks never lead at any point other than like the first 2 minutes and we controlled the entire game.

I knew we were gonna win, but i was disappointed it was a 30 point win because it should of been. Completely out played that team.

HuRRiCaNeS324

The only thing the Lakers have that enticing that can bring back a good player in a trade is Odom and Bynum. But those two, especially Odom, were key players players in their championships and trading them might make it worse imo.

The length that they provide on offense, defense, and rebounding is priceless and can drive teams crazy. And Odom is perfect for the triangle because he is one of the few players at his height that can bring the ball up court and set up their triangle offense. Plus, he is probably their best player this year tbh.

So a trade for the Lakers will prolly happen because it needs to happen, but i doubt its anything big. Hopefully they dont get extremely lucky again and trade Brown and Blake for Carmelo or something.

kobe24>lebron23

I think its safe to say that the almighty Spurs and best team in the history of civilzation the Heat will meet in the Finals for the next 10 years with each game going to game 7 and each team getting 5 titles each. And from this point forward the Lakers will lose 30 games in a row and not make the playoffs.

Spurs totally manhandled the Lakers tonight. Like Shawn Elliot said, I don't think I've seen Kobe picked this many times in his CAREER than tonight alone. Ginobli and Hill played some of the best defense I have ever seen on Kobe, which says alot. Spurs announcers were talking about how both Parker and Ginobli made huge commitments in the summer to ensure that they become better in the passing lanes, and man did it pay off today. I don't know the numbers, but Parker must have had more than half his points on the fastbreak or dribble penetration off a steal. It was ridiculous. On the other hand, we played with absolutely zero defensive intensity, however their were quite a few bad calls given to us, but that happens when teams play sluggishly. Kobe started off great, but then went ice cold the rest of the game. Gasol has been abysmal as of late, Legler mentioned on the radio about the whole "soft" talks coming up again. He needs to get his act straight and start hitting those 5 foot hooks again and contain his man on the defensive end. Hopefully this is rock bottom and the journey is uphill from now.

Those 6 players are all pretty important for them and are usually the ones providing the scoring load.

Obviously Dirk is important, but he is one person. That like saying the Mavs lose Dirk, Butler, Terry, Kidd, Stevenson, and Marion or something lol. They are all better than the Raps 6 players, but they are just as important to them as these 6 players are to the Mavs.

Mavs have a TON to prove before they can be considered the best in the conference. But a win over SAS on Thursday will be a good start.

As for the Eastern Conference, it's fairly clear that the Celtics are the best team in that conference. Proven winners, deeper team (especially in the interior), better record, and took the Heat out in both head to heads.

Im not saying we would win or anything because the Celtics are a great team, but we are a different team now then when we first played them. I think a game now would be a lot more competitive at the very least.

A perennial regular season juggernaut of a team that ALWAYS fails in the playoffs doesn't have a ton to prove? Wrong dude, they very much do. And as a rule of thumb for them at this point, until they make it completely out of the conference, they aren't its best team; especially given they don't have the best record in it.

That said, they're clearly a great team and Tyson helps them in a major way, so they have a good shot. But again, they have a lot to prove - and it will have to be done in the post-season.

The Lakers may look bad right now, and Kobe may look fairly old, but I wish I could show you the game threads from the same week last year. It was just after the blowout loss to the Cavs on Xmas and was full of people insisting that Kobe was declining (including me, which in fairness is true - it's just not drastic), and that this might be the end of their run. Well, guess what - we were wrong. The Lakers will fight back, and they will still be the toughest team top to bottom in that conference come playoff time.

The title is the Celtics to lose.

I said that to make a point. Saying Kobe's game has declined as much as the other names he has listed like Shaq is ridiculous. The ENTIRE Lakers team is going through a horrible spell right now collectively, which has brought up the losses. Let me say this, many don't have Wade in their Top 10 for MVP, does that mean his game has declined? Wade was horrible to start off the season, does that mean he is on a decline? The answer is obviously no. Everyone has tough stretches of games and it gets blown up even more when a team does it collectively and lose in blowout games.

I get your point, but Kobe wouldn't look as bad if he would just realize he can't score 30 every night anymore. He should stop shooting it so damn much and do other things to help the team. His assists numbers should start climbing (which is actually fairly low this year) as well as his rebounding numbers and they haven't been.

Kobe came out blazing in the first and was 4-5 to start the game. He had like 10 of their first 12 points. Second quarter our second unit caught on fire and we had the lead going into the 3rd. Thats where the game completely fell apart and we could not get a steady offensive flow. The triangle wasn't being utilised. What happened? We looked lost. And when that happens, the Lakers always look for Kobe to bail them out. I hate it but it happens bud. They get caught ball-watching and Kobe decides to take over. But he couldn't get it going and the Spurs just played great defensively. Bynum was the only big aggressive in the game. Blair abused Odom and Pau in the paint on both ends. The Spurs commentator Shawn Elliot had a blast calling Lamar, Mr Kardashian and Pau soft. Because they showed not hustle on or jump in their game today. Parker was living down in the paint. Just take a look at his shot-cart tonight. Almost everything in the paint.

Things are just going rough right now. When the entire team struggles, the leading player gets all the blame and thats fair. But to take it over the top like drobe86 is comical.

You're being nice bro.... Be honest man Kobe scares you? Im not talking about past years I'm talking about this season. Kobe looks like a guy lol...

Tbh no he doesn't. But that because we got 2 guys that can cover him effectively. Wade and Lebron have always played good against him.

Its almost humorous what he did against us when he brought the ball up court and did a self post on D Wade and he did not pass it and he did not score either. He did that at least like 5 times.

Generally speaking, he CAN be scary if he becomes more of a playmaker than a scorer. But i think his pride and frustration is getting in the way right now and he isn't scary to anyone. But he will get better once the whole team starts improving, but not to the extent we use to see.

I won't get into that. But I didn't mean Kobes position. There aren't 20 better sgs than Kobe, but there are 15-20 players in the NBA that are better THIS SEASON. And 15-20 isn't bad, but there are fools out there that will tell you Kobe is the best player in the NBA

I see, well that's entirely different. But still, I can't subscribe to that. Kobe still pretty clearly has top ten impact, and his fire, leadership and unmitigated focus on another championship is an asset that any team would die for.

You would have a point about us declining if we didn't come out and go 22 and 6 with a top 3 record in the league lol..... Just saying

So when the annual Mavs choke job comes around this playoffs, I will have a point? Take some advice, people are going to be more harsh on you than Mavrix. Poor guy went AWOL every since last year. :laugh2:

Alright man I'll leave it alone our bets in place. I'm just saying if you're watching the same games I am, you have to believe Kobe's declining. How can you say he isn't? I challenge you to explain to me how Kobe's played well this year....

I saw the end of it because the Heat game was on, but i get your point. But Gasol and Odom have to get more attempts than that no matter what. And he only had 1 assist so that must of been some terrible offense all around because even ARROYO can get 1 lol.

I don't get into the past bro it doesn't mean anything. Its about what we are doing right now man and we're 24-6 and top 3 in the NBA. We get it done on both ends, we win on the road, at home, whatever the circumstances are we find a way. We've played the 3rd toughest schedule in the NBA this year so we're beating quality teams.... You can talk all you want about 06 and last year but it means nothing. People bring that up to get away from the reality of what's happening in today's NBA.....

The lakers are a great franchise and have had an amazing history

But come on now, they have 1 single win over teams above .500 this season and were almost half way done

Lets talk about this season instead of bringing up the past, thats lame

People are quick to say the Mavs arent good bc of the past playoffs but are quick to say the Magic are good when they have the same playoff success as us? Thats crazy

That's true, but to be fair they only have 4 losses to teams OVER .500 (one of them being the Bulls, who they also beat). Like the Knicks, they've just simply had a really easy schedule so far. So saying "they only have 1 win over a +.500 team and the season is almost half over" is far from telling the whole story. Still have about a months worth of games before it's half over, btw.

Am I seriously in here defending Kobe and the Lakers still? Enough of this!

Some of you need to stop being so god damn politically correct. No one is getting an award for best poster of the year and who cares about getting respect from people you dont know.

Just look at the Lakers and a blind person can tell you there is something fundamentally wrong and its being exposed against the better teams. These loses are frustrating the heck out of the Lakers and you can tell from a mile away and it isn't helping the chemistry. Now you are starting to hear that Gasol is soft again and Kobe is declining or they're too old, or whatever it is, a lot and it's gonna either bring them closer together (like the HEAT) or drive them apart. With the amount of good teams this year, ima go with the latter.

Kobe's PER (24.6 - 5th in the NBA), ts%, WinShares/48, assist% and Offensive Ratings are ALL higher than they were last year. You might be looking at his per-game averages and seeing a very slight decline over last year, but that's only because Phil's monitoring his minutes to ~33 a game rather than the 38 he was playing last year. That said, the guy's putting up another 25/5/5 year and playing solid D. And you're acting like he's not an absolutely elite force in the league?

Simply put, you're wrong. While not the best player in the NBA, he's still incredibly good. And I can guarantee you nobody (especially the Mavs) are licking their chops at the thought of facing Kobe and the Lakers in the post-season.

People were saying lebron and wade cant play together they both need the ball, bosh is too soft, our bench sucks, everyone outside the big three can't even hold a candle to a dleague teams. We went through that crap and are slowly silencing the critics.

now the same hate wants to be spewed on the lakers. idk if the lakers are gonna get it together but if i was a betting man i would say yes.
they didn't win the last 2 championships by luck and i refuse to take them lightly..

I have been saying that for a year and the one person who finally listens is a heat fan? wtf is this world coming too? lol ;) anyways I agree with you. all I hear is he's making our team look bad and no one respects so and so..... if you really give a crap about what people on the internet think about you then you need to get a girlfriend and grow up.

no, don't get me wrong there will come a day that Dirk will belong on that list. It's just that it isn't this year. Dirk is arguably the MVP of the league this year. How's that declining? Declining is what you saw on xmas vs. the Heat, and tonight vs. SA. Kobe got locked down by George Hill lol....


The Mavs need Dirk to be great so bad to be contenders...The Lakers and Spurs can count on various guys to step up when it matters. Guys who have proven they can.

I'll put my money on a Manu Ginobili or a Pau Gasol before a player like Caron Butler.

Lakers are in fine shape considering this 3 game skid... we're talking about the Lakers as if they're not going to make the playoffs when in reality they're tied for the 3rd seed, and with a possible win tomorrow and Mavs loss on Thursday they're right back in the mix for 2nd seed. They'd be what 2 games outta 2nd?

Last thing before I go to sleep... I also think that the Lakers playing badly, which they are, is combined by the factor that teams really want to beat them moreso then other teams. 3-peating is hard to do as history has shown... believe the 98 Bulls started 13-9.

12-29-2010, 07:44 AM
Taking and mssing 13 shots in a row isn't bad luck...it's bad decisionmaking. Why can't Kobe defer more his teammates like Duncan has been doing?

This article states some very valid points: http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news;_ylt=Av3wFiOe27WXkj3.0YmsHMq8vLYF?slug=jy-lakersspurs122910

It's a shame Kobe has to resort to the selfishness he displayed in the Smush Parker-era...he is the games best closer. He doesn't have much more to prove. It's frustrating to see him play this erraticly after making so much progress as a team player the past few years.

It's tough to get going if Pau gets just 8 shots vs. Kobe's 27. That just not good at all. Struggling or not, a quality big like Pau should be utilized a helluva lot more.

I think there is a reason behind all the shooting though... I've seen MJ shoot terrible in a lot of games..12-39, 4-20 etc... , but thats just the nature of scorers, Kobe was after his team since the Miami game, and he took full responsibility for this loss and that's fine.

The statement you made on Pau is a little premature though man, if you've watched him play the last month he hasn't been the same at all, and it has nothing to do with Kobe. He's often deferring when he gets the ball, and as you saw last night, a majority of his shots are fadeaways and have been for the past month. I don't get whats up with him... maybe hiding an injury or something.

Gasol isn't getting his attempts because Kobe's taking a lot of shots. Kobe's averaging 25 5 and 5 in 34 minutes. Lakers will be fine. Mark my words.
