you have to remember, browns only game plan while in cleveland was to get the ball to lebron and get out of the way. seems that may be part of the game plan with kobe as well. brown is more of a defensive minded coach, and the lakers defense has been fairly solid for a 1st year, but he isnt exactly an offensive genius. i cant put the full blame on kobe or brown but a combo of the 2.

No arguments there. Though he's got a LOT less talent to work with, George Karl is coaching circles around Mike Brown in this series.

It's not that hard to run inside-out post plays. The Lakers have enough shooters to make that work and isolation floor spreads are simple to operate.

Theory, it's all easy in theory. But then old habits are hard to break.

I'm merely stating that the Lakers clearly could do it, they (kobe) are just choosing not to.

Good point. Again, 43 points on 32 shots isn't much to get excited about. Not to mention 10 points off free throws. so that's really 33 points of 32 shots.

I almost feel bad for Kobe. He wants to match Jordan's 6 championships SO BAD...but I don't think it's gonna happen. LOL.

I don't think the Lakers make the finals this year, but if they do, the Heat will destroy them.

In their game 3 loss he took something like 23 shots and only had about 22points (Including FT's etc.).

I just don't see the Lakers taking advantage of their size and mismatchs and this series would be over already if they had. Instead, after a compressed season and tired legs they are heading into game 6 and perhaps 7.

A long shot but what if the Lakers lose this series?

I think it's highly optimistic to put them into the WCF let alone the finals at this stage.

NO. They needed to scrap that "no trade" clause that is in selfish Me-First idiot shooting all the time guard's contract. Bryant is killing this team. Killing it.
