No, he has to win a playoff series first before we come to that conclusion.

Yeah, I woke up....pulled up ESPN and the title read something like "Nuggets hold on against Kobe blah blah blah" making Kobe sound like the hero that just fell a bit short.

So, then I see that he took 32 shots and the rest of the starters took 34....so then I pulled up his 4th quarter and he only shot 5/12 bombing in a lot of 3's.

Said it before, but I think there is a breaking point coming between Kobe and Bynum. Pau already knows where he stands after the near-trade but you can bet Bynum and him mutter stuff.

How the heck do they only get Bynum 8-9 shots....and the guy had 4 O-rebs so some of those shots were likely self generated. Essentially, they are running virtually no offense through Bynum.

It was 2 games in the Magic series that the Pacers just barely won so I have no idea what you mean when you say they win in six versus the Heat. Especially when they will be in Miami for the first two games which means they will be down 0-2 and maybe win one in Indy and then the Heat win in 5 games.

The Lakers again, didn't play with any urgency or heart.

But on the other hand the Nuggets didn't really play that well. They went 3 for 19 for 3's. Sure they were up by, what, 13 at one point, but for how horrible the Lakers played the lead should have been a lot bigger; it should have been a blow out.

This happened last year too. The Lakers look really awesome in a couple of games and look absolutely horrendous the next. They badly need consistency; they just don't have it.

Pau was taking perimeter shots early on and Kobe was going to the hole. The Lakers just need to play conservative and feed the ball to Bynum, and when the double comes then Kobe can go to the hole or then pass it out to Sessions, Blake or Pau for a perimeter shot.

Plus the Lakers need to hustle on D. They can't be trading baskets with the Nuggets style of offense. The Lakers gave up too many "freebees" last night.

Ugh.

Has it ever dawned on you that teams match up differently? What the Pacers did against Orlando has no bearing on what they can and can't do versus the Heat. Not saying I necessarily agree with Toxic Toast's prediction, but you have to weigh each series on the merits of the teams involved, and how they match up against each other. The Pacers 'barely' winning against Orlando has no bearing on a potential Heat-Pacers matchup.
