that falls right into the article i posted yesterday. funny how people would normally not notice a game like that for kobe. they just say "yeah kobe had 23 and 9" without looking at the 7-25 line he had. or the fact that he made 8 fts and id be willing to be 1/2 of those attempts where borderline no calls but HE IS KOBE so the refs give them to him.

Kobe is a cagey vet, he knows how to draw fouls....<points at Dwayne Wade>

I've been negative of Kobe in the post Shaq years where he was trying so hard to prove how great he was and shot the Lakers right out of the playoffs while everyone oohed and ahhhhed and blamed his not having quality teamates for why he had to shoot so many poor shots.

I then praised him when Phil got him to calm down,take good shots, involve his teamates and his FG% shot up and the Lakers won championships.

He has now regressed back to the old Kobe. The one that causal fans thought was much better than he really was at the time.

I honestly don't know if people are just becoming more stupid or people have finally let their brains get fried by whatever drug they are taking..

Are you seriously asking me if some guy no one has ever heard of puts a team into title contention?

Next you'll be asking if DRose should be shipped.

It's an upgrade...I'm going to have to politely ask you to take the dick out of your own ass and give the other gay laker fans a chance to finish...seriously. open wide....

Who cares?

They sure weren't going to win a title this year with Fisher.

3rd seed isn't so bad, geez.

All I want to know is Sessions still HOP material? Last week he was the MISSING PIECE to carry the Lakers to their next title.

How many pts did he have last night? LOL

Wow. They are edging out the Clippers for that awesome 3rd seed..../golf clap
Maybe the 76'ers will become 3rd seed pen-pals with them?

You mean Hall of Fame material (HOF)? Who said that if you wouldn't mind qouting where someone said that. I'm not even a Lakers fan, I'm a Cavs fan lol. All I was saying is that he was an upgrade over what the Lakers had at the PG position, and I'd consider Sessions to be a good point guard. Not great, not a future hall of famer, but at this point he's better than Derek Fisher or Steve Blake.

I know, TVSG is just mocking the OP.

While Sessions is indeed an upgrade, they could have still used Fisher to strengthen their bench. Dumping Fisher was 100% a salary cap \ tax move.

The way Kobe is playing now they may not get out of the 1st round.

Getting Sessions without giving up anyone of significance is a better trade then the one that was nixed by Commissioner Stern for Chris Paul. It’s too bad this trade wasn’t made earlier instead of the Chris Paul trade attempt. We still might have a clear headed Lamar Odom too.
BWAH HAH HAH HAH HAH.......if Sessions were a thanksgiving Turkey....then westbrook has declared him delicious and served him up to the family by now.

Seriously. Everyone re-read this thread. Hey, I was wrong about Durant not winning MVP...I own that....but THIS thread is just dammmmn funny.

Oh, but at least ESPN made an excuse for them as being "weary"....and Sessions managed 2pts and 3 assists in 26mins. LMFAO.

To tell you the truth. Kobe doesn't really have a great supporting cast, so I can understand why he takes so many shots sometimes.
